    Have you ever wondered why seemingly good ideas don't get implemented even though people know they are good ideas? As a leader who wants to introduce a new idea or innovation, it can be challenging to convince people to get on board.  Loran Norgren, Professor at the Kellogg School of Management and co-author of the book The Human Element: Overcoming the Resistance That Awaits New Ideas.  In this episode, we are going to explore the psychological frictions that oppose change. Where so many leaders are obsessed with focusing on value and features, Loran argues that it's actually four frictions that stop new ideas from being implemented. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by Workplace from Meta.

    Is Simon Sinek Wrong About CEOs?

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 3, 2022 7:28

    A few months ago, Simon Sinek made a video where he said the title of CEO needs to go and be replaced by the title of Chief Vision Officer. Simon's argument was that for every other role inside of the organization, whether it be the CTO, CHRO, or the CMO, their title basically explains what they do. But when it comes to a CEO, most people have no clue what that person does and what that role even means. To be honest, I think most people are actually more confused by a title like CHRO than they are by the title of CEO. I find that people rarely say they have no idea what a CEO does. I don't think the issue is so much that we don't know what a CEO does. The issue is more that we don't keep the CEO accountable for doing what we know they should be doing. We know the role of a CEO is to set the vision, guide the organization, put people first, and create a better world and a better organization. But do we actually hold CEOs responsible and accountable for doing that? That is where I think the bigger problem is. Just changing the title isn't going to make much of a difference. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by Workplace from Meta. Workplace is a business communication tool from Meta.

Take care of your body, otherwise it becomes very hard to take care of all of these other things as well. 4. Emotionally. This is about your relationships and how you respond to difficult situations and challenges.

    Do You Need to Follow Your Passion?

    We keep hearing about this concept of passion and whether or not you should follow your passion. It reminds me of a story about a man who visits a construction site. As he's going around the construction site, he sees a bunch of people working. He asks the first person what they do there. And the man responds that he lays bricks. He asks the second person, who says he is building a wall. He asks the third person, who says he is building a cathedral. I love this story because it's an example of three people who are doing the exact same thing with totally different mindsets. It's not that the person building a cathedral is passionate about what he's doing, it's the fact that he's bringing his passion with him to whatever he does. And that I think, is a far more scalable and realistic approach. Don't follow your passion. Instead, bring your passion with you. --------------------- Companies with better employee experiences have more engaged and productive workers, higher profits, and the ability to attract and retain talent.

    Are you a current or aspiring leader who feels stuck in your career? If so, you're not alone. But thankfully, there are six strategies you can implement to unstick yourself from your career and find a way to move forward. 1. Ask why. It's easy to feel stuck. But ask yourself why you feel stuck in your current role or your current environment and get to the root of the problem. 2. Focus more on who you work with and less on the dollar figure and the brand name. 3. Be open to the possibility of making a lateral or even a backwards move so that you can then make a forward move. 4. Have an honest conversation with your leader. If you feel stuck, talk with your leader and explain your feelings. Maybe you can both do something that makes you feel unstuck. 5. Take a step back and really define where you want to go. 6. When all else fails, consider quitting. The worst thing you can do is be complacent and simply feel like you're stuck without taking any kind of action. But the best thing you can do is act. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by Namely. Working in HR isn't for the faint of heart.

    Why Every Leader Works In HR

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 1, 2022 5:22

    For many years, there has been the assumption that anything related to people inside of an organization is only the responsibility of HR. HR does the recruiting, hiring, firing, benefits, compensation, policies, and all the people-related tasks. I'm not saying that as a leader you need to do all of these things. But as a leader, you are ultimately responsible for your people. And that is very much an HR responsibility. Sometimes we forget the power and responsibility a leader truly has. You have the power to make or break someone's day. As a leader, you need to know your employees as human beings, not just as workers. You need to know what your people care about and what they value. You need to know their strengths and weaknesses and how you can help them shine. You need to unlock their potential and make sure they succeed. People don't leave companies, they leave leaders. So as a leader, you are arguably the most important part of the HR department. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by SAP Concur.

    3 Stages Of Your Day to Increase Productivity

    Do you know how to increase your productivity? According to Dan Pink, author of When, you have to understand the three stages of your day. We all go through these stages at different times, but the stages themselves are consistent: Peak, Trough, and Recovery. The peak is when you have energy, when you're ready to go and you can accomplish anything. This is the time to work on your tough tasks. The trough is when you're mentally checked out, sluggish, and not really present. This is the stage where you want to focus on the administrative tasks and things that don't require a lot of cognitive energy and effort. The recovery happens much later in your day. This is where your mood is usually up, and it's the best time to focus on tasks that are good for insight, such as creating tasks or brainstorming. The key is to identify when is your peak, when is your trough, and when is your recovery. After you identify those things, you'll know which tasks you should be doing at certain times in the day. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by SAP Concur.

    Stop Calling Them "Soft Skills"

    I never liked the phrase soft skills. To me, it implies that things like communication, empathy, self awareness, and emotional intelligence are less valuable and less tangible than things like reading, math, and science. Many leaders and HR professionals actually agree that soft skills are more important now than these traditional hard skills. It's these human soft skills that ultimately distinguish us from machines. AI is already augmenting human decision making. It's out thinking, out maneuvering, out strategizing and outperforming us in many capacities. But not when it comes to the skills that make us who we are as human beings. It's because of these “soft skills” that we were still able to bring in new customers and close deals. We were still able to support and help each other. And create customer and employee experiences that matter. So let's call them what they really are, not soft skills, but skills. Let's recognize how crucial and invaluable they truly are for our personal and professional success. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by SAP Concur.

    The #1 Most Dangerous Quality A Leader Can Have

    Play Episode Listen Later May 11, 2022 5:41

    What is the most dangerous quality a leader can have? Ego. Having an ego in itself isn't bad. But what hurts a lot of leaders is having an ego that goes unchecked. As you grow and excel in your career, you're going to get more power, authority, responsibility, and money. And as that happens, it's only natural that your ego is going to grow. As a result, you start to think that your ideas are better than everybody else's and that you shouldn't be questioned or challenged. This is when the downward spiral typically begins. In addition to creating a toxic work culture, you start to miss out on opportunities to create new products and services, and you start to make bad decisions. But the good news is there are a few things that you can do to avoid having this happen to you: 1. Practice empathy 2. Embrace and develop self awareness 3. Surround yourself with diverse people who are smarter and more talented than you 4. Get out of the ivory tower and spend time with people across different seniority levels and different functions in the organization 5. Practice saying I don't know Keep your ego in check as you grow and develop as a leader. Don't let ego kill your career and your leadership potential. --------------------- This episode is sponsored by SAP Concur.

    Boundaries are only as good as your ability to communicate them. It's great for you to know what your boundaries are, but if other people don't know about them, they're kind of useless. It's important to have boundaries and communicate them in a clear way. When communicating, one of the most important things to have is empathy. You don't want to sound rude by saying NO to people. Keep in mind that you're saying no to the request, not the person. When your leader starts giving you a lot of work, you can say, “Can you help me prioritize my current projects so I know what I should be working on first and what I can do later?” Another technique is to have an open and honest conversation with your leader. Let them know that you have a lot going on and are feeling stressed and that you're working on being more productive. Letting people know what you're facing and how you're trying to come up with potential solutions can be a healthy thing to do. --------------------- The #1 challenge for organizations right now is how to attract and retain talent.

    Technology is changing all of the time, so it's best to conduct technology audits in your organization on a yearly basis. Take a step back and look at the ways in which you're working and where technology might be able to play a role. Identify the bottlenecks and challenges you see. If you start using new technologies inside your company, it's important to collect data on the progress. Are employees satisfied with those technologies? Don't assume that just because you give people a piece of technology, they will automatically start using it. You need an ongoing feedback process so you can keep improving and making changes to your organization. Technology has a 30% impact on an employee's overall experience. That's because if an employee doesn't feel they have access to the tools and resources to get their job done, they start to become disengaged and frustrated and eventually will want to leave your organization and work elsewhere. --------------------- The #1 challenge for organizations right now is how to attract and retain talent.

    Every employee inside of your organization has something to offer regardless of the generation they're from or the stage of life they are in. This is why mentoring can flow both ways, with younger employees mentoring older employees or with older employees mentoring younger employees. In the old days, we always had the older and more experienced people mentor younger people. But in this new world of work, we're starting to see that mentoring can go both ways. When mentoring goes the other way, meaning a younger employee is mentoring an older employee, we refer to this as reverse mentoring. Reverse mentoring is not only a great way to build trust and collaboration, but it's a wonderful way to share ideas inside of organizations.

    Knowing When To Speak Up At Work

    Complaining and speaking up are not the same thing! Everyone should be comfortable with speaking up at work. The first reason to speak up at work is to share an opinion about something. Chances are, you were hired because they like what you bring to the table--your opinion, unique perspective, and the things you care about. Have an opinion and share it, but do so in a tactful way that doesn't put other people down or hurt their feelings. The second type of speaking up we need to practice is about driving actual change. When you speak up inside of your organization to drive change, the most important thing you can do is have a solution. A lot of employees are good at complaining. But if asked what to do to change it, they don't know what to say. That's not an effective way to drive change inside of your organization. It's crucial for you to speak the language of the business and have some sort of a proposed solution that you want to see happen if you truly want to drive change. --------------------- The #1 challenge for organizations right now is how to attract and retain talent.

    Why You Need To Pay Attention To The Tangential

    Most of the time, we're focused on what is right in front of us, especially with our careers. But we need to pay attention to the tangentials. That means opening up a bit to notice the things on the sides related to our main focus. For example, let's say you are in finance. If you're someone who is paying attention to the tangentials, you would probably notice that there are a lot of conversations happening around the impact AI and technology might have on your job. Because of this, you could ask yourself, where else can my skills and abilities be used besides just finance? Then you would realize that your skills are also very much in demand in areas like HR data science and people analytics. You can now quickly pivot and bring your skills to another area. If you had your blinders on, you would be very much stuck in finance and not have as many options to grow and expand. This is why it's very important to pay attention to the tangentials. --------------------- The #1 challenge for organizations right now is how to attract and retain talent.

    We've never invested more time, more money, or more resources into employee engagement programs. We spend billions of dollars every year, but around the world, employee engagement scores aren't improving. Why? Because it's the employee experience that creates an engaged workforce. And an engaged workforce impacts ROI. If you want to have an engaged workforce, start by investing in the experience of your people. This is based on a concept created by a psychologist named Thomas Gilovich. He realized that if you invest in a physical good, your satisfaction goes down over time.
