In this episode, we talk about how to get others to accept the feedback you are giving – leading them to action. Tweet it out: Before people can apply the feedback you give them, help them accept it as valid and useful.

How fast are you going? How fast should you be going? Do you even know where you are going? Kevin is joined by Alan Willett, author of Lead with Speed: Fire Up Your Team, Power Your Engines of Development, and Make Your Organization Soar. Many organizations would say they need to be faster, whether that’s features added, products to market, or customer response. Alan suggests our speed needs to be relevant to the value. You can go as fast as you want, yet if you aren’t accomplishing your goals or are just fixing problems, are you moving forward? Sometimes it’s not about working harder/faster, it’s about doing something different. This episode is brought to you by...

First, we must understand the goal of feedback which is that the other person will take action on that feedback. And then, we have to ensure that the feedback is actually heard. In today’s episode, I am giving you four invaluable tips to help you ensure that your feedback is heard so that it can be acted upon. Additional Resources Watch the video
How do you give feedback? Maybe the better question is, how do you receive feedback? Steve Herz believes we need to create the environment for the give and take. Once we can accept feedback and take action to improve ourselves, giving feedback is easier and more accepting. Steve is the author of DON’T TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER: Using Authority, Warmth, and Energy to Get Exceptional Results. Steve and Kevin discuss the AWE model and the “soft skills” we don’t focus on or dedicate resources to building. Yet, these skills help us become more confidence-inspiring and more respected, leading to more trust in your team. Steve shares examples of the model in action and how this now plays out in our current work environment. Key Points In this episode, Steve discusses: Feedback.

Remember recess? Swinging happily on swings, monkeying around on the monkey bars, or zooming down slides... As kids, this was an important part of the day. It gives children the chance to socialize, burn off some much needed energy and re-focus so they are better equipped to learn throughout the day. Not surprisingly, these are all things that we need as adults as well. And it's why breaks are so powerful to our success. When we make the time for breaks throughout the day, we will get more accomplished, have better ideas and generally less stress. And when we're working remotely, we need these breaks even more. In today's episode, I'm laying out the case for breaks! You can watch the video version of this episode at: https://blog.kevineikenberry.com/video/the-power-of-the-break/ Tweet it out: Taking a break isn’t for slackers – your productivity will soar and your stress will sink. Take a break already! @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Check out the articles and resources on The Remote Leadership Institute website and our COVID-19 Response website.
Timothy Lupfer wants us to get back to basics about leadership. It is a role we are usually given and involves followers (whether they be employees, students…). Leadership is narrower than most of us think. Leadership is the role of affecting followers to achieve organizational goals. Tim is a retired Army, former consultant, and the author of Leadership Tough Love: Examining Leaders Through the Lens of Reality. He shares with Kevin his thoughts about leadership and why it’s more than just a position. He discusses scalability, specifically as it relates to the number of true relationships we have. Leaders need to focus on their immediate group, and we need good leaders at every level (to keep close relationships). This episode is brought to you by...

You are leading…and others are watching. This is true when things are going well and when they’re not going so well. That’s right. That means as a leader, you are on display. And in the words of my friend, Tom Peters, it’s always showtime. However, all of this does not mean that I am suggesting that as leaders we have to be “actors” or pretending at our job. Quite the opposite in fact. Check out this episode below to see how leaders can harness the “spotlight”! Tweet it out: As a leader your team is always watching. You ARE leading by example.

How are you using the power you have (for good or evil)? Yes, we all have power just through our relationships between colleagues, family, and friends. Thereby, it can be a bit tricky. According to Deborah Gruenfeld, we need to embrace and own our power, even if we are uncomfortable with it. Deb is a social psychologist and the author of Acting with Power. She shares with Kevin that there are levels of power and it is a responsibility that is yours. Often there are negative connotations with power, however, when you look at it in action, force is rarely used. People want to help you, so you will help them. When you have control over another’s outcomes you need to think about the interests you are serving; be the person other people hope you will be. This episode is brought to you by...

Alex is a senior technology reporter at BuzzFeed News and author of Always Day One. Alex interviewed more than 130 tech insiders from hourly workers to executives to share how the “Tech Titans Plan to Stay on Top.” However, the lessons learned don’t just apply to Silicon Valley.

Focus is really important to leaders. What we study and think about, GROWS. So during difficult times, it’s even more important to be sure that we aren’t focusing on the negative; that we avoid putting negativity under the microscope. Here’s what I mean… Tweet it out: Focus on what you want – don’t put negativity under your microscope. @KevinEikenberry From This Episode: Learn more about and listen to the Remarkable Podcast here.
We have the tools for accounting principles, and these have remained unchanged for years. Yet we have no real tool to measure customer loyalty, and every bit of cash flow starts with cash from the customer’s pocket. Kevin is joined by Rob Markey. He is the author of a new Harvard Business Review article on how to run a company to maximize customer value, “Are You Undervaluing Your Customers?" He is also the co-author of The Ultimate Question 2.0. Rob believes that customer loyalty and company success go hand in hand. Companies with high satisfaction rankings grow revenues roughly 2.5 times as fast as their industry peers. Leaders need to find ways to get the voice of the customer in front of the entire organization, not just sales or customer service (regardless of the size of the organization.) Rob also shares ways to destroy customer value (a lesson on what not to do). In this episode, Rob discusses: Customer value. Leading for loyalty. Relationship recovery.

Have you had the opportunity to walk in an elementary school and witness the joy, the curiosity, the childlike wonder? Today, we are missing a piece of that of wonder. We can list the reasons why we’ve lost it and it‘s more important to recognize we can get that optimism back.

John is the author of On Fire and his latest book, IN AWE: Rediscover Your CHILDLIKE WONDER to Unleash INSPIRATION, MEANING, and JOY.
