Above all the work you produce or professional successes you have, your invisible reputation means the most. This topic hits home for Lora Olivieri, Rebel Interactive Group's VP of Client Services.

It's defined in how you make people feel behind the scenes, when no one else is watching. 

It's the Slack messages you send when you think no one will know. 

It's how you treat people in moments of stress or crisis.

Ahhhh the blank sheet of paper.  The blank Google Doc. The blank email. The PowerPoint you have yet to start. The paralysis that overcomes us when seeing it. 

There’s a tool that exists that’s consensus building, an ideas ignitor, a physical place to capture perspectives and challenge them… the whiteboard. 

On today’s episode of the rebel leadership podcast, BJ Kito, Rebel Interactive Group's Chief Strategy Officer, geeks out wit...

Of all the emotions that come with leadership, one is most important: courage. 

When it feels hard. Scary. Daunting. 

When you feel doubt, uncertainty, stress, unknown. 

Something inside you draws you in — to lean into that moment and have the courage to do what’s right. 

On today’s episode, we’re talking to Bess Freedman, the CEO of Brown Harris Stevens. She oversees 55 offices and more than 2,300 agents across New York, Connecticut, ...

Vulnerability.

It’s a tough topic to understand and even harder to embrace. Especially at work.

Vulnerability at work isn’t about sharing your deepest darkest personal secrets — it is at the root of what fuels empowerment, honesty, authenticity… it is a core rebel leadership principle that I explore with our very own Rebel, Nikki Cassells

She’s on our Client Services team and recently joined our company in the fall of 2021. Quickly ...

It starts with a moment of courage. It feels like you’re about to drop a bomb on someone you care about. But it’s your ultimate responsibility to give it to them.

Hard feedback. 

It’s a gift. And delivering it can be easier with a simple formula. 

Dave Jakubowski is the CEO of Ureeka and an avid investor and advisor to growth-stage companies. He is a lifelong learner and storyteller and gets real with us about some actual hard convers...

In late 2016, a 6-year old boy named Alex Myteberi wrote a letter to President Obama offering to help a five-year-old Syrian refugee boy — if you recall, the iconic image of the horrific conflict in Syria showed a young boy covered in blood and dust in an ambulance after his house in Aleppo was destroyed in a blast.

Obama not only read Alex’s letter — but he celebrated his kindness at the White House, and as part of an international...

Hard work. It’s often connected to producing things you can see or feel — it’s tangible. When you’re shifting from the ultimate producer of things, to leader of people… it’s uncomfortable. What you once described as hard work — physically producing deliverables and tangible things — now becomes putting in the time and effort onto becoming a better person, a better leader of people. 

In today’s episode of the Rebel Leadership Podcast...

Every experience along your journey is worth it, whether you realize it or not. Who you are today doesn’t define who you will become tomorrow. If we get into the habit of pausing to reflect and listen to what those around us are trying to tell us — so we believe in it ourselves — opportunities will open and true transformation starts to happen. 

In this episode of The Rebel leadership podcast, we’re talking to two developers at diff...

When someone is in their sweet spot, magic happens. 

Leaders have a tremendous responsibility in finding the sweet spots of their employees. 

It’s a choice. They can either seek to understand each employee on a human level in order to learn what truly drives and motivates them, or they can simply have them do the job they were hired to do. 

When you allow people the freedom to work on what fills their cup — lights them up — it’s a mov...

One simple question managers or leaders can ask that has the power to change the dynamic between themselves and those around them: 

“What motivates you in the day to day?” 

I sent a quick email back to Emmy Gray the other day, boosting her up for handling a very complex client communication with poise and clarity. She’s a strategic client relationship lead in our company — and that job is very intense. It’s filled with a lot of emoti...

Raise your hand if you’re in a leadership role and you’ve said these words: “Don’t tell anyone, but…” That’s the line. It’s a tightrope. The balance between leadership and friendship is complex and ever-changing. The dynamic is subtle and nuanced — and one that is worth talking about. 

Listen, reflect, and embrace your next ah-ha moment.

Vibe. According to the dictionary, it’s a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others.

Technically, It’s intangible; but as working professionals, we all feel it and sometimes, see it. Interviewing candidates, especially in a Zoom world, is a difficult task. There are so many subtleties people give off that show who they really are and it’s the vibe they give off that’s most import...

One of our exceptionally talented new business development leads, Joe Martin, asked me a question the other day. It stopped me in my tracks. It was right after a company-wide meeting where we talked with 75 people about big picture themes and vision. 

He said, “But Allison, what’s the end goal? How will we know we’ve reached it?”

He was on the verge of an ah-ha moment; one that would teach him to see life and work differently. That i...
