Burnout levels at work are on the rise. Bruce Daisley found that folks were quitting their jobs with no plan because the uncertainty was better than their current situation. Bruce is the author of Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat: 30 Hacks for Bringing Joy to Your Job. He shares with Kevin that seeing unhappiness at work firsthand led him to want to figure out how people could connect with their jobs again. At the end of the day, regardless of where you work and your title, satisfaction from doing a good job is the same. Leaders need to get real about burnout. Bruce’s hacks are a result of science, research, data, and psychology. He shares what he discovered and offers examples to help give our work more meaning and find that joy.

Four-hundred years ago Francis Bacon presented the scientific method, where the workhorse is the experiment. Now is the time we move experimentation beyond an engineering process.

Leaders face uncertainty throughout their organizations. This includes the rollout of new products to customer satisfaction to marketing.

Stefan shares examples of large-scale experiments and why he thinks this should be mainstream in all businesses. In this episode, Stefan discusses 1. Business experimentation and examples. 2. Myths of experimentation. 3. Cause and effect. This episode is brought to you by... Unleashing Your Remarkable Potential, Kevin's free weekly e-newsletter.

As a leader, there is a lot on our shoulders and much is asked of us.

I am talking about encouragement and I’m giving it to…YOU. Tweet it out: Everyone needs encouragement, even you.

This is a lesson for leaders and it’s one that you won’t want to miss. Tweet it out: The very best baseball players fail 70% of their times at bat.

Words are powerful and when we use the right words in the right situations, they can have a huge impact in our ability to be effective as leaders. Today, we are diving deep into a word that seems innocent, but might not be when we are aware of how we are using it. Beware the Word ‘Actually’ 3 Comments (Edit)   Words are powerful and when we use the right words in the right situations, they can have a huge impact in our ability to be effective as leaders. Today, we are diving deep into a word that seems innocent, but might not be when we are aware of how we are using it. Tweet it out: Be careful with the word ‘actually’. When you put it in front of a statement of good performance, it shows your underlying belief. Need an example? “They actually did a good job.” See what I mean? @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Sign up to receive an email notification each time we release a new episode of Remarkable TV here.

These days, there is no shortage of communication tools at our fingertips - literally. And while this means that it is easier than ever to communicate with one another, it doesn't necessarily mean that we are communicating better. In fact, some might argue that we are getting worse at communicating. So, today I am going to remind us all of a powerful, but often forgotten communication tool that we should all be using more frequently. Tweet it out: Want to communicate with impact?

Leadership and communication go hand in hand and most organizations are looking to improve communications with their teams. Jack Modzelewski is the author of Talk is Chief: Leadership, Communication and Credibility in a High-Stakes World and joins Kevin to discuss culture, communication, storytelling, and crisis management. Whether they realize it or not, Jack believes leaders are chief credibility officers. They create the communication culture in the organization. Leaders need to be themselves and bring all their experiences into communication, regardless of level. This is especially true in times of crisis or change. Executive communication should not only address the change but should include milestones and personal benefit. In this episode, Jack shares his thoughts on 1. Storytelling and sizzle. 2. Listening and communication. 3. Change communication. 4. Crisis management.
