    027: Robynne Orr Narrates the Value Effect

    027: Robynne Orr Narrates the Value Effect

    On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

    In Episode 27, Robynne Orr explains how she became happier working with others by changing her expectations. She explains the value of expressing value, and Robynne shares some practical advice.

    00:00 Prologue: A Narrative Passion

    Robynne is more than an architect for Yale University. She is a voiceover talent. In 2020, Robynne narrated my book, What the Heck Is Leadership and Why Should I Care? If you listen to the audiobook, you’ll quickly realize Robynne’s passion for nonfiction narration becomes apparent.

    01:32 Part 1: Revisiting Expectations of Others

    Through a personal story about two friends, Robynne gains a life-changing insight into her expectations from others.

    07:29 Part 2: The Behavioral Thread of Expressing Value

    While there are many stories about toxic work environments, Robynne relates a story that is the opposite. Imagine working at an organization in which executives, managers, and peers express how they value others.

    13:56 Part 3: Modeling the Values that We Appreciate

    Robynne advises us to adopt behaviors that exemplify how we value the people that we work with.

    026: Peter Popovich Explains Emotional Intelligence

    On Wednesday episodes, I share leadership beliefs and unlabel terminology. I invite guests to share their expertise about small or big acts of leadership.

    In Episode 26, Peter Popovich, emotional intelligence expert, shares how we can understand the meaning of emotional intelligence, improve how we can benefit from an assessment, and advise us on strengthening our emotional intelligence.

    00:00 Prologue: A Really Brief Introduction

    00:52 Part 1: RUM Is an Acronym

    The formal definition is…formal and difficult to recall. I prefer how Peter explains emotional intelligence as RUM2.

    12:56 Part 2: The Good and Bad of Emotional Intelligence Assessments

    Assessments may have some reliability challenges, but Peter has found some valuable ways that you can leverage your emotional intelligence assessment.

    24:45 Part 3: Advice from the Four Areas of Emotional Intelligence

    There are several tactics you can leverage to strengthen your emotional intelligence. Based on the four parts of emotional intelligence, Peter advises on developing self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management (the four areas are from the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0).

    024: Sherrie Niedermeier Connects with Her Teams

    024: Sherrie Niedermeier Connects with Her Teams

    On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

    In Episode 24, Sherrie Niedermeier illustrates the formidable effect that leadership has through her stories. She discusses the importance of friendship, caring for others, and maintaining congruency between thoughts and actions.

    00:00 Prologue: Leading with Care

    Sherrie is the Chief Learning Design Officer at Human Capital Institute (HCI). If you work for Sherrie, you’ll quickly learn that she has high standards for performance, but she’ll do whatever she can to ensure that you’re successful. Sherrie cares about the people she works with and wants everyone to excel in what they do, both personally and professionally.

    01:21 Part 1: Friendships with Direct Reports

    Sherrie tells a story about a boss at a previous organization. The boss complained to Sherrie that she was too close to her direct reports.

    12:57 Part 2: To be a Fear Factor or to Care

    If you manage a team, do you perceive the negative more than the positive or vice versa? Do you see them as people first and then employees or vice versa? Sherrie conveys a leadership story that relates to these questions.

    20:17 Part 3: Striving for authenticity

    Sherrie advises us to strive for authenticity and explains what that means.

    023: Simma Lieberman Elevates Culture with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    023: Simma Lieberman Elevates Culture with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    On Wednesday episodes, I share leadership beliefs and unlabel terminology. I invite guests to share their expertise about small or big acts of leadership.

    In Episode 23, Simma Lieberman, my expert on DE&I, helps me decipher Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

    00:00 Prologue: Discovered through Social Media

    I discovered Simma through her blogs on Multibriefs, which lead me to her podcast about diversity. Simma, a.k.a. The Inclusionist, is an award-winning professional who consults, coaches, and offers powerful keynotes. If you plan to meet 50 people this year, ensure that Simma is one of them.

    01:28 Part 1: Debunking the Need for Similar People

    What makes diversity in organizations diverse? Simma answers this question.

    07:24 Part 2: You Need More than Equal Access

    Equality doesn’t mean that there is equity. Both terms are worth unlabeling, and Simma does just that!

    13:44 Part 3: Accessing Their Brilliance

    If you have diversity, do you have inclusion? What does it mean to have an inclusive culture and organization? Simma helps me demystify inclusion by answering these questions.

    21:50 Part 4: Take Diversity to Lunch

    Whether a manager or a team member, Simma offers practical ways for us to enable teams and organizations to diversify and become more inclusive.

    022: Lisa Wicker Meets You Where You Are

    022: Lisa Wicker Meets You Where You Are

    On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

    In Episode 22, Lisa Wicker shares two of her guiding principles. In a story, Lisa describes how she connected with and championed a difficult employee. Also, she advises us to think critically about why we would want to enter and advance in management.

    00:14 Prologue: Standing on the Shoulders of Mentors and Guides

    From working for an automotive foundry to becoming the Chief Executive Officer of Career Mastered and publisher of Career Mastered Magazine, Lisa has mentored, lead, and even cheered for the people in her life. Of all the people I know, Lisa illuminates what empowering women means. Her hard work in celebrating women publicly, providing networking events, and developing girls and women has opened opportunities for women to flourish professionally.

    01:26 Part 1: Showing Respect for Who You Are

    New managers who rely on authority and trying to control their situation and others hurt their ability to lead. Lisa shares two of her guiding principles that make a difference in how she leads.

    11:05 Part 2: Why Do You Care?

    When someone starts at a new company, employees already have made assumptions about who you are and what to expect from you. Mostly unconscious, these assumptions are not based on the new employee’s personality but come from job typecasts (to name one source). Lisa illustrates how to overcome role typecasting.

    18:58 Part 3: Why Do You Want a Promotion?

    Lisa challenges us to critically think about why we would want to change careers and shift to a managerial role.
