When I was growing up, most households only had one phone and it was usually in the kitchen. And teens spent alllll the time on that phone. Today’s teens also spend a lot of time on the phone, as do most of us. These tiny devices consume so much of our time and attention, although we rarely use them anymore for what they were originally designed for – to TALK on them. And today, I’m reminding you of all of the reasons and benefits why the next time you pick up your phone, it should be to talk into it.

Relationships. They are critical for our mental health and they are how organizations succeed. Yet, many of us struggle to build solid connections. David Bradford and Carole Robin are the authors of CONNECT: Building Exceptional Relationships with Family, Friends and Colleagues. They join Kevin to discuss the importance of building exceptional relationships or at least moving along the continuum. There is a risk of being vulnerable. Yet, when we show up as ourselves (in an appropriate way), we have more impact. As a leader, we need to recognize feedback is a gift. We need to be willing to ask for, as well as offer help, so we can all behave in our best interest. 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 recently received an email from the Principal of the High School that I attended, asking if I would help with a project. As the students are getting ready to celebrate a COVID-style homecoming, the staff is asking alum to share messages of encouragement and support.

Defining your team’s purpose is not only important; it is pragmatic. Once you have the purpose, it is easier to decide when to collaborate and when individuals should act. Carlos Valdes-Dapena is a coach and the author of Lessons from Mars: How One Global Company Cracked the Code on High Performance Collaboration and Teamwork and Virtual Teams: Holding the Center When You Can’t Meet Face-to-Face. He joins Kevin to discuss why conventional approaches to making teams better don’t necessarily work. Through extensive research working directly with brands like M&M’s and Snickers, he found that you need to be intentional about collaboration. Leaders need to clarify why it matters and how individuals benefit from working together. This is especially true for achievement-driven people who are innately motivated to get stuff done.

In a fast-paced (and often remote working) world, we seem to run our days on “transactions” – short-term, project-driven tasks. And while transactions get things done in the short term, relationships are built and nourished on interactions. And in a remote working world, relationships are even harder to maintain. That’s why it’s important that we balance transactions with interactions. Learn the difference and therefore how to recognize this balance in your life from this episode. From This Episode: Our new book, The Long-Distance Teammate, addresses strategies and techniques for improving the relationships (from interactions) in your virtual team.

Do you ask for the help you need? As a leader, we are often self-reliant. The success of our teams and organizations rests on our shoulders, we better be the ones making the decisions. Todd Palmer hit rock bottom and needed to redefine success. Todd is CEO/Entrepreneur of Diversified Industrial Staffing and the author of From Suck to Success: A Guide for Extraordinary Entrepreneurship. He joins Kevin to talk about his journey of self-awareness and shifting mindsets. He needed to ask for help and to become accountable for his decisions. Once he got over the fear of failure and recognized it as a learning opportunity, he was able to shift the culture of his company. Todd also shares hiring advice and how things have changed (or not) since the pandemic. This episode is brought to you by… Unleashing Your Remarkable Potential, Kevin’s free weekly e-newsletter.

In this episode, I’m telling an old story about a farmer and his stallion. And while I like stories just as much as anyone, this is more than just a story. This is a lesson on the power of perspective.

Often, we see grit as something hard-nosed. However, Darrin Gray believes our grit should be fueled by joy. Darrin serves as Chief Marketing Officer at Athletes in Action and leads AIA’s NFL Advisory Council. He started in the newspaper business, where he felt he was creating a community. He has carried this idea of community and building a team throughout his career. A winning team isn’t about themselves but is a coalition of the willing. These are individuals who not only want to become better (players, leaders, parents) but are willing to help each other build the best version of themselves. Leaders not only need self-awareness, but a mindset and heartset to meet people where they are.

In the world today, people are running hard and fast, many so focused on taking care of others – be that their children, spouse, clients, teammates, students or their patients – that they aren’t taking the time to take care of themselves. It’s gotten so bad, that I recently read about a nursing school that added a program to their nursing curriculum on the importance of and how to take better care of ourselves. Self care is vital to our health and our success and our ability to have an outward focus and to take care of others. In this episode, I’m sharing some quick tips to help you make it easier for you to take care of yourself. Tweet it out: Self-care isn’t selfish. You can’t give your best to others when you aren’t at your best. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Learn more about The Long-Distance Teammate here.

He joins Kevin to discuss coaching and the lessons he has learned throughout his career on and off the field. Todd talks about the fundamentals and the importance of following your heart.

By sharing his story, he hopes to help others grow and develop. This episode is brought to you by… Unleashing Your Remarkable Potential, Kevin’s free weekly e-newsletter.

As of today, I cannot predict the future of work – for you or for your business. But I do know one thing. Whatever that future holds, work is going to be different…again. I do not believe we will ever return to work as we knew it in 2019. I predict that we will have an amalgamation of different forms of flexible work. – Some companies will send all of their employees back all at once. – Some will send half now and half later. – Some will allow their employees to choose where they want to work. There will be many options and each organization’s choice will very likely look a little different. So, what can you do now to prepare for the future world of work today? In this episode, I’m providing a few steps that leaders and teammates can take to prepare for flexible work. Tweet it out: Prepare for the future today – even if you don’t know exactly what it will look like (and you don’t). @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Whether you are a teammate or you are the leader of the team, The Long-Distance Teammate, can help you to prepare for this new future of flexible work.

There have been many discussions about the future of work. Will robots be able to do everything? For most of us, 2020 accelerated that future and creating a need for new mindsets and strategies. Jeff Schwartz believes we aren’t going back to the way things were and we have the opportunity to set a new direction. Jeff is the co-author of Work Disrupted: Opportunity, Resilience, and Growth in the Accelerated Future of Work. Jeff shares with Kevin that to understand 21st-century careers, we need to be working with new maps. We have choices in what our future looks like, so how do we work with everything we have available (includes physical space and technology).

In January 2014, I recorded the very first episode of Remarkable TV. And the episode below is our 365th episode – we haven’t missed a week since we started! That’s like recording and releasing a video every single day for year. And while that first video doesn’t look so great now (watch it here) – the sound quality wasn’t great, the picture was a bit fuzzy, I might have rambled a little – I know that the continual practice we have done in recording each week since then has helped us to significantly improve. Zig Ziglar said: Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly – until you can learn to do it well. So in today’s episode, I’m sharing four lessons from our 365 RTV episodes.

Are you one of the 20 million to download the Netflix Culture deck? Whether you did or just looked it up now, you will recognize that Netflix operates at the edge of chaos, or so it seems. Yet, they have been able to re-invent themselves as the environment has shifted and created a company of innovators. Erin Meyer is the co-author of No Rules Rules Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention with Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings. She joins Kevin to talk not only about culture but building a culture of freedom. Netflix encourages all employees to make decisions based on the context and direction of the company. This can only happen with strong leadership, foundational principles, and the right employees. Although Erin uses Netflix as the example, there are lessons and principles which can apply to your organization and your team.

Change is the only constant in life (Heraclitus). If you don’t see, are you paying attention? And if you aren’t changing, well, that is something different. Stacy Henry is the author of Get Rooted! Growing People and Companies Through Change and joins Kevin to discuss change and values. We don’t always get to choose the change (hello pandemic), yet we get to choose our actions and reactions. The way we respond is based on our values. Often, we hold on tight, even though we don’t like the current state, because it is known. It requires us to think differently and move through the change.

In this episode, I’m talking about The Epidemic of Loneliness and what we can do about it. Before the pandemic, there was already an epidemic of loneliness. And while we know that the pandemic will eventually subside, the epidemic may not… In fact, loneliness is becoming a larger and more important issue as more and more employees and organizations go virtual. So if you’re feeling lonely or as though something just isn’t right, here are a few strategies that I hope will help ease this pain. And a small word of caution before you listen to this episode: I am not a doctor. If you have serious concerns for yourself clinically, please see someone. And while you can’t diagnose a friend or colleague, know that my advice here can only go so far. From This Episode: In our newest book, The Long-Distance Teammate, Kevin has created a practical handbook to help remote team members become more effective, connected and engaged while working remotely.

Do you ever feel like you are putting in the effort yet fall short of expectations? Does your team ever feel that way? So, what can you do? Richard Lee suggests it doesn’t need to be complicated. We just need the right mindset tied to the skillset. Richard is the author of WORK THAT COUNTS: Breaking Down the Barriers to Extraordinary Results. Kevin and Richard discuss three mindsets that create an impact within your organization. These include empowered relationships, align to do the right thing, and collaborate in and across teams. For this to work, both the team leader and team member must work on their relationship and remember it is unique and dynamic. Further, you need to look outside your immediate team and consider the whole to achieve goals.

Good things happen when we are thankful. We feel better. We are less stressed. We are healthier.

Why do existing organizations with resources find themselves irrelevant (or no longer in existence), whether through new technology, changes in demographics, competition? Chances are they did not plan for the disruption, which can come from any direction or place, especially where we least expect it. Sameer Hasija is co-author of The Phoenix Encounter Method: Lead Like Your Business Is On Fire. Just like the mythical phoenix that is born again from the ashes, this method requires you to think of your business truly being disrupted (burning to the ground) so you can build it again. Shifting your mindset to create a burning platform, allows you to build a playbook to defend against the attacks (in whatever form they take). This is an on-going process and can take your organization to the next level.
