Description

Leadership development for everyone in the blue collar workforce, those who support them, and those who lead them. Leadership is influence. Influence is built daily, not in a day.

There are two types of influence: 1) Artificial influence which comes with a title, position, or rank and is reserved for those who have formal authority over others; and 2) Authentic influence which is based on a person's character and the relationships they build, and it's available to anyone with or without a position of authority because it's based on moral authority (who you are and how you do what you do).

Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 18 of 30)7 Reasons to Ask Your Team Questions: Leading with QuestionsThe best leaders always ask the most questions.In this episode, Mack will help you learn how to unleash your team's potential by asking them questions. When you ask a question, you're actually transferring influence (leadership) to the other person. If you want to engage your team and increase buy-in, there's no quicker way than asking them thought-provoking questions.
Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 17 of 30)John C. Maxwell had this to say, "Leaders who navigate do even more than control the direction in which they and their people travel. They see the whole trip in their minds before they leave the dock. They have a vision for their destination, they understand what it will take to get there, they know who they'll need on the team to be successful, and they recognize the obstacles long before they appear on the horizon."Leaders intentionally remove obstacles which also builds trust and strengthens relationships. If you're a high impact leader, removing obstacles is not your job. It's your responsibility. Will you help your team help you?
Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 16 of 30)In this episode, Mack discusses Capt. Michael Abrashoff who took over the worst missile destroyer in the Navy. In just two short years, he took the crew and their ship from worst to first.Living intentionally leads to amazing results. Living accidentally leads to depressing disappointments. A better tomorrow doesn't just happen. You must become intentional and make it happen.High impact leaders don't hope things happen. They make things happen. Low impact leaders (managers of people) hope things will happen.
Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 15 of 30) The mirror and the window are tools used by both high impact and low impact leaders (managers of people), although they use them in completely opposite ways. As Arnold Glasow stated so well, "A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit."Leaders who take more than their share of the blame and less than their share of the credit will easily build trust and earn respect.  Leaders who take more than their share of the credit and less than their share of the blame will quickly create distrust trust and lose respect.

Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 13 of 30)You're always teaching what you're modeling, regardless of what you're teaching.  Albert Einstein said it best, "Example isn't another way to teach, it's the only way to teach."In this episode, Mack will discuss the impact of your example on your team and all of those who are watching you do what you do, at home and at work. Someone is always watching. What they see on the outside is based on what's on the inside.
This is an introduction to my newest book #13, Blue-Collar Leadership & Culture: The 5 Components for Building High Performance Teams.It’s easier to compete when you’re attracting great people instead of searching for good people.Culture matters because those who work there will determine who wants to work there. You shouldn’t have to spend time and resources constantly searching for good applicants. You should be able to select great applicants with top talent. High Performance Teams are filled with top talent.Culture is the key to becoming a sought after employer of choice within your industry. Becoming a sought after employer means, “People who don’t work at your organization have a strong desire to work there.” Becoming an employer of choice means, “People who already work at your organization have a strong desire to continue working there.”“Culture is owned by the CEO, whether he or she admits it or not.” ~ Edward ScheinBlue-Collar Leadership® & Culture features content specifically for the top leader who has never led a cultural transformation but is curious to find out what will be required. Discover why you should transform your culture, and also what to do and how to do it.
