We may be more connected than ever before; yet studies show we are also lonelier. Further, research indicates that for the first time, the emerging generation (Gen Z) is feeling more isolated and lonelier than the elderly population, and this was pre-Covid. Ryan Jenkins and Steven Van Cohen share with Kevin that we underestimate how much we need connection. When people show up lonely for work, they are 7x more likely to be disengaged, 5x more likely to miss work, and twice as likely to think about quitting their job. We need to be intentional about our connections and less transactional. This episode was recorded during our Mental Fitness Day, a Virtual LeaderCon event in April 2022.

  Micromanagement. Leaders tell me all the time that they’re not doing it, but if I talk to their teams, I often hear something different. And here’s the thing, the other person decides if you’re micromanaging. It’s wonderful to think if you’re not. But the reality is, if the other person, the person you’re leading or managing thinks you are, then you are. Because micromanagement is relative, right? What feels like micromanagement when we’re brand new in a job is quite different than what it might feel like when we’ve been doing a job for a long time. Because what we even need as the employee is quite different. You could be working with two different people, leading them in exactly the same way. One of them thinks you’re doing great. The other thinks you’re micromanaging because micromanagement is relative. Micromanagement is also personal. We have different experiences in our past, different sort of buttons that can get pushed by our boss. And so we have to be clear about what does it look like to the other person. If we want to avoid this problem right now, this doesn’t mean that we might not need to provide guidance. Does it mean we don’t need to provide coaching? Does it mean that sometimes people are messing up and we need to give them more input? It doesn’t mean any of that stuff because all of that might even be welcome. But micromanagement is something else. So how do we overcome it? Well, there’s lots of things we can do to overcome micromanagement. Talk with each team member. Set clearer expectations for the work and your interactions with others. The main thing I want you to remember from this short video is this, that even if you don’t think you’re micromanaging, you might be because the other person decides. Tweet it out: You may think you aren’t micromanaging, but others decide whether you are or not. @KevinEikenberry In this episode: Learn more about our Remarkable Master Class, Overcoming Micromanagement.

Communication. So important in our lives, both professionally and personally. So complex, not only with all the platforms on which communication is possible but even more so as we are doing more “remote” communication. Katie McCleary shares with Kevin that we need to show up with the intent to listen. We need to move past asking “why are you doing this” to “tell me about how you are doing this”.

Our lives are a portfolio of S-curves. We have periods of starting, learning, and mastery.

If I asked you what your first thought is when I say the word “conflict”, chances are it wouldn’t be positive. And while there is certainly a downside to conflict, the truth is conflict isn’t always bad. In fact, there are many times when conflict can be a good thing. And in this episode, I’ll explain exactly this. Tweet it out: Conflict isn’t bad until it is. Conflict that allows us to explore perspectives and learn is useful. Conflict that becomes personal isn’t. @KevinEikenberry In this episode: Subscribe to the Remarkable Leadership Podcast.
Empathy is something we all look for in other people. We would love for people to have more empathy for us. And when we’re willing to and take the time to be empathetic with others, we gain almost as much as they do. I’m speaking about empathy in general, but I’m also speaking about it specifically as a leader. Because now more than ever, as a leader, being more empathetic is one of the great ways for us to be more effective as a leader. And so while there is lots written and stated (much by me even!), today I’m not going to talk about skill as much as the practice of being empathetic. And specifically the five L’s that you can use to help you create a practice of empathy.

In this episode, we’re talking about making room for conversation and I’m using a cup metaphor to illustrate some important points. As humans, we all have a mental and emotional cup. And like a cup of tea or a cup of coffee, if it’s completely full, there is no room for anything else. Literally. This cup metaphor applies to communication and conversation as well. If you are attempting to converse with someone and their cup is full, there’s not room for a new conversation with you. You’ve probably been in conversations where this is the case. And if you have, you find that you’re talking to someone who isn’t very engaged. So when this happens, the only way to engage and create real dialogue is by helping the other person make room for the conversation.  In this episode: Learn more about and sign up to receive Kevin’s Daily Email here.
