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). This episode is brought to you by… From Manager to Remarkable Leader, Kevin’s Flagship workshop based on his proven leadership model.

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. This episode is brought to you by… 13 Days to Remarkable Leadership, a free leadership video series based on Kevin’s book, Remarkable Leadership.

In January, our newest book came out – The Long-Distance Teammate. When we were researching and writing this book, there was one key word that continued to stand out and be seen as a key measure of how to be successful as a remote teammate. That word was… Proactivity In this episode, I’m sharing 4 specific ways that you can be more proactive in your remote work.

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. These are just a few benefits but it’s obvious that being thankful for anything or to anyone in our lives is a good thing. In this episode, I am specifically suggesting you thank your teammates for four very important reasons.

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.

You’ve likely heard this saying: What gets measured gets done. While it’s an oversimplification, there is a lot of truth in this saying. And interestingly enough, one of the areas where we spend an increasing amount of time is meetings. And do you have any meeting metrics that you are tracking? You likely don’t. And even if you do, in this episode, I am sharing a new meeting metric that you likely aren’t tracking but should be for many reasons. I am also sharing how to implement this simple yet effective metric. From This Episode: This strategy is just one of kind of ideas that we share in my newest book, The Long-Distance Teammate. If you, or a member of your team, is working remotely (and who doesn’t know at least someone who is these days!), you won’t want to miss this powerful book. Learn more and order your copy here.
Nothing elevates performance more than a great coach. And the performance of your team reflects the coach. Bill Eckstrom is the co-author of The Coaching Effect: What Great Leaders Do to Increase Sales, Enhance Performance, and Sustain Growth (with Sarah Wirth) and joins Kevin to discuss both quality and quantity of coaching. We need to understand where coaches are spending their time. Bill discusses growth rings and how they are reflective of environments that promote or hinder growth. Leaders at any level need to understand the necessity of challenging people out of their comfort zone to create high-growth organizations.

The questions we ask determine the answers we find – and therefore the decisions we make.

Is it the journey, or is it the destination? The role of a leader is getting to the destination (sales, profits, product development). Walt Rakowich believes the most important part of leadership is the journey and what happens along the way. Walt is the author of TRANSFLUENCE: How to Lead with Transformative Influence in Today’s Climates of Change. Walt and Kevin discuss transformative influence and Walt shares stories about his journey. There is a time and place for leaders to be vulnerable and acknowledge the details their team understands and works through daily. By overcoming fear and pride, we can empower our team and build trust. When leaders recognize they have a transformational influence on their team, they find opportunity, embrace challenges, and make their organizations and communities greater than ever.

One of my all-time favorite Musicals is Fiddler on the Roof, and one of the famous songs from it is Sunrise, Sunset. Here are part of the lyrics: Sunrise, sunset Sunrise, sunset Swiftly fly the years One season following another Laden with happiness and tears The song talks about how our lives are flying by and the older I get, the truer this is. And while each day is still about sunrise, sunset – a daily rhythm – and life is an accumulation of days, I have an important question for you: How do you start and end your days?

Remote work isn’t new. Technology has allowed organizations to have offices not only on different coasts but in different countries. We have started to work across time zones and cultures. In 2018, Kevin Eikenberry and Wayne Turmel published the Long-Distance Leader and reminded leaders the principles didn’t change, just the location. In March of 2019, there was a huge shift to remote work; much of it unplanned. They found there was a difference between working from home and being a productive remote teammate. Wayne, co-founder of the Remote Leadership Institute, joins Kevin to discuss their latest book, The Long-Distance Teammate: Stay Engaged and Connected While Working Anywhere. There is a difference between being just a team member and a teammate. We need to be more intentional to create connections and take responsibility for our growth. Wayne shares ideas for leaders and discusses some of the challenges we may see in 2021. We are not going back to the way things were.

Can we? Should we? Both questions are important and the difference between the two is just one small word. But that small word makes a significant difference in how you answer the question. In this episode, I’m helping you to think about this distinction with a few thoughts and maybe a couple of other questions. Tweet it out: Can you do something vs. should you do that thing. Likely you’ll be better served to ask both questions before you decide. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: If you’d like to receive my daily email and get a short, inspiring message each day, you can learn more and sign up here.
Do you feel like a fraud? Are you waiting for your team to question why you are leading them? If it makes you feel better, you aren’t alone. In fact, studies show that 70% of people feel like an imposter at some point in their professional careers. Rita Clifton shares that none of us know everything. She is the author of Love Your Imposter: Be Your Best Self, Flaws and All. Rita and Kevin discuss the imposter syndrome and how you can acknowledge your fear (versus hiding from it) to make you better. Rita also debunks the myth ‘fake it until you make it’.
