Remote Team Leaders Celebrate Small Wins

Have you given up on your goals and dreams this year?

If there’s one overall mood that’s being felt through this pandemic, it’s the mood of resignation.

People are tired, people are defeated, people have been up against so many barriers this year that they’re just ready to turn the calendar in December and chock 2020 up as a loss.
But I say, DON’T GIVE UP!

You can turn it around, and as a leader, the action you should be taking is Celebrating. In fact, if you dedicated this last quarter to celebrate with your team, you’d be surprised at the amount of progress you can make in the last three months.

How to create a committed remote team

How to Create a Committed Remote Team

After remote work began last spring, leaders faced a new insecurity around the c-word, (commitment.) Is my team just at home napping? Are they going to stay committed at home with all of these distractions? How are they going to balance their commitments?
How can I help build commitment on this remote team?
In fact, building commitment looks different in the work-from-home environment versus the in-office environment. Your team is now in a different work setting, and so they need to take on a newer and higher level of commitment for them to succeed in this environment. They have to be proactive in commitment behaviors such as creating an optimal at-home work environment and routine, and none of this comes easy. So let’s talk about three things leaders can do to help build commitment on their teams.

Reinventing Leadership: Nine Things Virtual Leaders Must Focus On

All the research that has been released today on leading in our new virtual frontier says there’s something missing. The challenge is that leaders are being called upon to focus on how to create culture in a virtual world. After reviewing my week, I’ve discovered nine areas of opportunity leaders should focus on to help strengthen their virtual culture. In order to do this, leaders are going to have to stretch their authenticity, transparency and connectivity.

The Nine Areas Leaders Need to Focus on is
-Building Clarity
– Focusing on Cause
– Challenging Potential
– Demonstrate Culture
– Describe Commitment
– Be Courageous
– Celebrate
– Building a Learning Community
– Integrate Comedy

It’s time to reinvent leadership in a way that you show up as a more authentic version of yourself. Bring more clarity, raise the necessity of why people do what they do, make bigger declarations, make commitments, find the behaviors they need to take on to reach their goals, celebrate people, build a community and be the missing piece of culture that your company and your team needs right now. It’s a big request, but you can do it.

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?

Learn how to unlock your passion as a leader to maintain your company’s culture.

How to Gain More Control

Is the COVID-19 crisis overwhelming you with the feeling that you’ve lost control? Right now, the thing we want most is control. We want control over our work, over our responses, and frankly to move about like we used to.
Before this crisis, I “thought” I was in control when it turns out, I actually wasn’t. I’m going to share with you my story about how I “thought” I was in control, and give you a road map that I’ve used since the beginning of this crisis to help get more control over your life.

2020 was going to be the best year of my life. And, I worked it Baby! I worked it like crazy. As a matter of fact, I worked it so hard, I started to feel sick. Then I discovered that I have a hyperthyroid.
What I had realized was that before I got sick, I “thought” I was in control, when actually I wasn’t. The truth is, I had zero control over my life.
With the help of my coach, I created a plan to get more control, and I’m going to share this with you. This plan begins by asking WHY you want to get in control in the first place and then diving deep into my 3 R process. RE-flect, RE-define, and RE-new.

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.
