Do you manage change? Or do you lead change? And maybe even more important: do you know the difference between the two? There is a very important distinction between these two words and as leaders, we must know the difference in order to be successful in our change efforts.

Does your leadership change the organization? For the better? This is the question Jonathan Raymond asked himself and had an aha moment. Jonathan is the author of Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team Is Waiting For and joins Kevin to discuss the mindset shift leaders at all levels need to make. Your team does not need a leader who knows everything and solves all the problems. Your job as a leader is to think strategically about the organization. Your job as a leader is to create the emotional conditions for your team to grow. Let them do the jobs they were hired to do.

Opportunities have expiration dates. I saw this quote recently, and I wish I could remember who/where to attribute this quote to because I instantly loved it. There is a lot of truth in it. Let’s think about opportunity for a minute… Have you ever missed an opportunity because you were unaware of it? Have you ever missed an opportunity because you let it fall down your priority list? Have you ever missed an opportunity because you delayed, or were stuck in analysis paralysis? At least one is a yes.. guaranteed. While there are many opportunities that we know about, there are many that we don’t notice…because we aren’t looking. In this episode, I’m sharing two big ideas to help you take advantage of all of the opportunities that come your way. Tweet it out: Waiting has implications because opportunities have expiration dates. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Get a short, inspirational email tip every Monday – Friday by signing up for Kevin’s Daily Email here.
Good leaders take away the “me” factor. Yet, before you successfully lead, you need to know who you are. Minter Dial suggests we take the time (and it takes time) to recognize our strengths, weaknesses, fears, and triggers. When you have this information, you can supplement yourself. Minter’s latest book is You Lead, How Being Yourself Makes You A Better Leader. He suggests that you cannot control how you are perceived, but you can control your awareness. When you show your whole self at work, you encourage your team they can be themselves leading to more trust and success. This episode is brought to you by… Unleashing Your Remarkable Potential, Kevin’s free weekly e-newsletter. It’s full of articles and resources to help you become a more confident and successful leader.

I love words – reading them, writing them, saying them… And today I want to talk about two words – progress and change – and more specifically, the connection between the two as well as the major distinction and difference. How Do You Feel About Progress? – Remarkable TV Leave a Comment (Edit) I love words – reading them, writing them, saying them… And today I want to talk about two words – progress and change – and more specifically, the connection between the two as well as the major distinction and difference. Tweet it out: People can commit to change when they see a valuable post-change future. And then it isn’t change at all.

Are you present? Are you learning from your journey, especially when you stumble? Scott O’Neil recognizes we all struggle and need gentle reminders to be present, whether this is professionally or personally. Scott joins Kevin to discuss his book, Be Where Your Feet Are: Seven Principles to Keep you Present, Grounded and Thriving. As the CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, which includes the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA) and the New Jersey Devils (NHL), he knows you win some you lose some. If you recognize where you are at, you have the opportunity to grow, go outside of your comfort zone, and be more prepared. We are about instant gratification, and we choose to take a long view and ask ourselves what we want to be and who we want to serve; it will change the way we work (for the better).

Every leadership course talks about delegation. And if it doesn’t, it comes up in the conversation. How do I know this? Because I’ve taught hundreds and every time I do, we talk about delegation. And even though it’s a major topic of conversation, many leaders are not doing it well. In this episode, I’m giving four common reasons why people delegate and explaining why they are NOT good reasons to do so. I’ll also share four GOOD reasons that will help you be more effective in your delegation. Tweet it out: Before you delegate ask yourself why. If all of your reasons are about you, chances are you won’t be very successful. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Check out our Master Class, Remarkable Delegation: Delegating Intentionally and Effectively, for even more tips on successfully delegating.
Change doesn’t happen in a day. So, how do you influence positive change? How do you influence your personal and professional life? You get to choose. Warren Rustand is the author of The Leader Within Us: Mindset, Principles, and Tools for a LIFE BY DESIGN. He joins Kevin to discuss what it means to live a life by design. As a veteran CEO, experienced board member, former White House Appointments Secretary, and mentor, Warren shares the principles of leadership and personal greatness he has learned through his experience and connections. We are all capable of great things and it’s up to us to choose greatness.

As long as I’ve been in the workplace, there’s always been a conversation about the dress code. In fact, when I first started working for Chevron, I was handed a copy of “Dress for Success” as part of the onboarding process. Since then, the conversation has moved from “Casual Friday”…to casual every day…to the day when everyone was sent home to work and the dress code as we knew it changed significantly. Now before you think this post and this video is about fashion, let me reassure you, it’s not. Instead, in this episode, I’m talking about how what we choose to wear has some pretty big implications far beyond what style of clothing is our favorite. Tweet it out: Your choice of what to wear to work (even when at home) may have more implications than you realize for yourself and how you are perceived by others. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Learn more about and get a copy of The Long-Distance Teammate here.
It’s important to understand who you are before getting to the why. Some of us are more logical and task oriented. Others of us focus on our emotions, our environment, and the behavior of others to guide our success. Melody Wilding suggests these “Sensitive Strivers” can anticipate the needs of the team because they are aware of how others are feeling. This empathy can also preclude them from making decisions because they are worried about what others will think. Melody is the author of Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work and draws on decades of research and client work to examine the intersection of sensitivity and achievement in the workplace. She and Kevin discuss the journey of professional and personal development starting at self-awareness and moving to self-growth.

I. Love. Auctions. And I love pretty much any type of auction. But my favorite is hands-down an antique tractor auction. (Yep, they exist.) And while if you like auctions, this video might be even more interesting to you. But regardless, I’m sharing the lessons that I learned from a recent tractor auction – and these apply to ANY leader, auction lover or not. Tweet it out: There are leadership and life lessons to be found at an auction – go to watch and learn – even if you don’t buy anything. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Get a short, inspirational email tip every Monday – Friday by signing up for Kevin’s Daily Email here.
How do new ideas come about? Cyril Bouquet is the co-author of ALIEN THINKING: The Unconventional Path to Breakthrough Ideas. Although new, innovative ideas seem to appear magically, they take time to emerge, mature and become successful. Cyril and his co-authors studied professions of people who challenge existing paradigms (inventors, artists, scientists). They found these folks use five patterns of thinking that distinguish them from the rest of us. These patterns -Attention, Levitation, Imagination, Experimentation, and Navigation- can help innovative thinking and problem-solving. He also says the navigation piece can be the most difficult because this is where the “rubber meets the road” and often where we face the most resistance. This episode is brought to you by… 13 Days to Remarkable Leadership, a free leadership video series based on Kevin’s book, Remarkable Leadership.

You might know that I grew up on a farm. And on a farm, you work late into the evening when needed. You see, my Dad was a night person. So it was not uncommon for me to work very late into the evening. Because of this, I grew up thinking I was a night person. That is until I wasn’t around my Dad and wasn’t needed to work those nighttime shifts anymore. And it was then that I quickly realized I am at my best in the morning and not in the evening. It took me awhile to figure this out, but when you know your “power time”, you know when you’re at your best. In this episode, I’ll help you determine your “power time” so that you can capitalize on these hours when you are at your best.
What makes Amazon different? What are the secrets to their success? Bill Carr would say they aren’t really secrets, but it does take innovative management. Bill is a former Amazon executive and the co-author with Colin Bryer of Working Backwards: Insights, Stories and Secrets from Inside Amazon. Bill and Kevin dig deep into the idea of working backwards. It starts with leaders being customer-obsessed, finding out what they want/need and work backward. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. We meet with lots of folks each day, many of whom are not our customers. So, we need to go out of our way to think about the customer. Bill also shares the four characteristics that help define the company culture and how this applies to leaders at any level.

Benchmarks are great. They help give us a way to measure our progress and/or success as compared to others and they also give us something for which to aim. And while there are all kinds of benchmarks that we use in life – personally and professionally – today I am giving you a new benchmark that when used can literally change your life. Tweet it out: Make joy your benchmark and strive to meet it. When you do, every part of your life will be more satisfying and successful. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Learn more about and listen to the Remarkable Leadership Podcast here.
Do you have to? or Do you want to? We all have a choice. Larry Olsen is the author of Get a Vision and Live It. He joins Kevin to discuss how people can learn to change their attitudes to align with their visions. Our brain makes decisions based on the past, not what the future holds; our growth is limited. We can’t change the past, but we can envision what we want our reality to be. You get what you think about. Prosperity is the here and now. It is the version that is ready for the moment about to happen. It is not based on the past, which can lead to disengagement or cynicism. Larry believes you are where you need to be to make great things happen. This episode is brought to you by… Unleashing Your Remarkable Potential, Kevin’s free weekly e-newsletter.

The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything. You’ve gotta keep control of your time, and you can’t unless you say no. You can’t let people set your agenda in life. – Warren Buffett Now who am I to argue with Warren Buffett? I completely agree that we must be protective of our time and that how we spend our time is directly correlated to our success. And yet…I am not advocating that we immediately say NO to everything. It’s important to use judgement always in our decisions. And that when we do say no, we say it with love. Tweet it out: To achieve our goals sometimes we must say no – but we can say no in a way that preserves relationships and future opportunities – that’s saying no with love. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Get a short, inspirational email tip every Monday – Friday by signing up for Kevin’s Daily Email here.
Ernest Hemingway said, “When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.” Ximena Vengoechea thinks Ernest may be on to something. She is the author of Listen Like You Mean It: Reclaiming the Lost Art of True Connection. As a user researcher, she understands the importance of listening for understanding. This is true for product research and organizational success. Often, we find ourselves default listening. We are sort of paying attention, yet we don’t get the true experience or the emotions of the talker. Ximena tells Kevin we need to move to empathetic listening, which starts with the intention to listen. A listening mindset begins with humility, curiosity, and empathy. When we bring this to the table, not only are we better people, but we are also better leaders.

This title might have you wondering why as the coach, you are asking questions versus providing answers. And the reason is, I believe that the best coaches have good questions. In this episode, you’ll learn five coaching questions that are valuable in almost any coaching situation – formal or informal coaching, virtual or face-to-face…any time you’re coaching!

Leadership and change go hand in hand. However, we need to make sure it’s a positive change. Not only is today’s workforce demanding it, but organizations are also finding it profitable. Bill Novelli has spent time in the private and not-for-profit world. Today he is a professor in the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and founded and oversees the Georgetown Business for Impact initiative. He joins Kevin to discuss his book, Good Business – the Talk, Fight, Win Way to Change the World. Bill shares examples of organizations making changes to create both social and monetary value. Wherever you are in the organization, you can make a positive social difference. Leadership is not about titles but having the courage in your convictions and the information to influence.
