Relatable Leader

Relatable Leader

Relatable Leader is produced to benefit the following listener groups: 1. People employed by organizations in which they hold a leadership position, or those who have been identified as potential leaders. This is one of the main participant groups attending my face-to-face trainings. 2. People aspiring to build careers as professional trainers and who want real-life insight into what that career might look like. These people frequently reach out to me to learn how I became a trainer and the introduction episode answers that question in broad strokes. Also in this category are those already in training roles seeking support and a virtual peer group. 3. Another participant group who benefits significantly from my trainings are front line workers who are striving to reach their highest potential. They aren't wanting to take on leadership roles, but they are on board with my motto, "You don't have to be the leader to lead." This podcast will provide you with insights into the topics I'm training, the challenges my clients face, the coaching I offer to overcome those challenges, and an overall view of one trainer's career. This is no fast formula or quick step to success. If you are looking for a 3-month, 10 step program to a six-figure income, this is NOT the podcast for you, because that's not the life I'm living. This IS your behind the scenes access to coaching that supports your success in a leadership position.... Show More

Now we face the one-year anniversary of this devastating event and face all of the emotions, stress, and circumstances we have moved through during this time. For me, it seems like the fire was last weekend and, at the same time, years ago..."fire brain" is real; difficulty concentrating, low energy,... Read more

"Experience, intelligence, and drive matter, but we should prioritize talent." Buckingham & Coffman. Managers and supervisors need to know exactly what talents they need in each role. In fact, they should understand their own talents and how they uniquely fit in the culture of their organization. Then they can work with HR to design an interview process focused on hiring the right talents for the job.

In this episode I answer 2 questions: "How should I respond to an employee who always plays the victim?" and "How much time should I spend listening to an employee who can't focus because of drama in their personal life?" I also share how I recently used time lapse video to highlight employees and their work processes.

Your organization cannot afford too many people who play the role of victim or too many people who talk about what could or should be done, but who don't execute action plans in a timely manner. This episode provides some self-assessment questions you can ask to ensure you hold yourself accountable for outcomes, and are open to tag-teaming with someone else at your organization to create joint accountability.

Training is expensive. When we take time to train employees who then quit, it gets VERY expensive. Many employees quit because they don't excel quickly enough to feel valued by their supervisors and managers. Or, they don't feel engaged because without being given higher levels of work, "busy" work is shoved on them. This situation can lead to less engagement and productivity. Imagine this: what if, on their firs... Read more

When was the last time you had an entire day to yourself to do or not do whatever you wanted to do or not do? Even though we have the weekend to, in theory, take a break, many of us don't take a break because that's the time to hurry up and accomplish all the things we didn't have time to take care of during the week. If you have kids who aren't old enough to take public transportation or drive on their own, you ... Read more

Are your values driving you to be a champion in your life? If you were boarding a ship and the captain greeted you by telling you there was no rudder on the boat and no common rules of engagement for passengers - lying, cheating, stealing, and taking advantage of others would be encouraged, would you get on that boat? If you interviewed for a job and the HR manager told you most of the day you'd be doing something you don... Read more

You might be familiar with this quote from Michelangelo: "The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark." Have you given this message personal thought and focus recently? We must not worry about what others think as we choose to make the most of this incredible life. Who knows what you might discover when you create forward... Read more

Each of us has a limited amount of time and energy. If you have to waste energy tolerating situations and behaviors that are not okay, that you shouldn't have to tolerate - then you have less energy and time for those aspects of your life that bring you joy and fuel a thriving life. Don't zap energy away from your talents and passions: stop tolerating the intolerable. 

If you haven't already listened to the fi... Read more

Why should you define and communicate your boundaries? So you can feel respect and create a respectful environment for all of your relationships. When people do not communicate their boundaries, they sometimes fall into passive aggressive behavior patterns or end up resenting some of the people in their life because they aren't getting their needs met. Or, maybe you have communicated your boundaries, but people continued the... Read more
