Unlock Your Passion to Maintain Your Company’s Culture

Leaders all around the world are planning and organizing around the new work environment now that restrictions are being lifted.

Some companies will go “back” and only a subset of the employees will physically retake their places at the office. For those who do go “back,” they will be spaced across floors, moved to offices, or will report from new locations.

Leaders are all asking the same question:

How do we maintain the culture we had pre-COVID-19?

4 Things Leaders Need to Focus on to be More Effective

It’s the beginning of June, and we’ve officially made it through almost three months of this Coronavirus Pandemic. People are slowly beginning to head back to work as things begin to go back to normal. But are we going back? Some of you aren’t physically heading back to work and the question we want to ask is do we want to go back to normal?

The “normal” that we were living frankly wasn’t very good. We’re never going to have pre-COVID times days work like we did. It was great, we had fun, some of us didn’t. But that time is gone. We now have transformed to this world of work where, for the most part, we’re not going to be sitting in the same room. For the majority of us, we’re going to be separated by distance.

We’re not going back, we’re never going back, but we are going better.

What I want to look at is what is our role as leaders in making this time better.

Leaders can become more effective as they head back to work through these topics.

Leaders must focus on 4 P’s for effective leadership; passion, planning, personal philosophy, and personal connection.

If You're Afraid To Seek Feedback Remember These 3 Things

Afraid to Seek Feedback? Remember 3 Tips

Most of us are afraid to seek feedback. We all want to reach success but we need to remember three things to overcome the fear of asking for feedback.

The Value of Receiving Feedback

What’s the value of receiving feedback? Feedback is priceless. My life was changed when it was about five years ago when I got the best feedback sitting in a lecture, the facilitator said, “Mitch, you don’t listen.”

You don’t listen. Three words. The best feedback I ever got in my entire life encapsulated into three words.

Now what was great about that was I was listening.

Those three words really changed my future.

Those words really changed my ability to not only listen but also to see the mistakes I had made; to see what I was doing and what I wasn’t doing that could have changed everything.

The people in your life are holding the keys to your future success in life.

Feedback is a gift. When you begin seeking and receiving feedback from others for the sake of becoming a better human being, you are getting THE MOST VALUE as a leader.

Getting truly honest, transparent feedback from the people we love is priceless. It allows us to increase our own levels of self-awareness and identify areas for growth and begin to step into bigger versions of ourselves. That’s what leadership is all about.
