Our 6th season of The Teamwork Advantage kicks off with a true superstar from the extreme athletics world, Robyn Benincasa. Robyn is the author of “How Winning Works” in which she talks about how she paralleled professions; being a firefighter for San Diego County and competing in the world of extreme athletics.Robyn talks about how, as a true competitor, her team was dropped in outlandish places like the jungles of Borneo. Her team then had to traverse over 600 miles, using no motorized transportation, with only a paper map and a compass for navigation. Listen as she tells stories of what she, and her competitors, encountered. If you think you have it tough, imagine that, if just one of your team members gets sick or decides the challenge is too tough, the whole team is disqualified. Compare that with the difficulty of being a firefighter and understanding when someone else on the team has a stronger proficiency of a task or can relate to a patient better and you have to step back. Robyn's ability to articulate these events will make this one of your favorite episodes of all time! Robyn is also the founder of “Project Athena,” a foundation that helps survivors of tragedy regain control of their lives. Whether it is surviving cancer, or the loss of a limb, she helps build powerful teams of individuals that then turn their setbacks into comebacks. What a way to kick off our 6th season of The Teamwork Advantage!

How would your team members describe the culture of your team? And would you even know how to begin designing a team culture? In my first few years as a manager, I definitely had no clue how to do this. And in honest reflection, I think I even abdicated the "culture work" to the company, i.e. the executives and HR. But that was a mistake. As leaders of a team, no matter how big or small, we have influence over the culture and hence, a responsibility to shape and cultivate it in a positive way! In this week's episode of The Manager Track podcast, I am joined by Gustavo Razzetti. Having been a culture design consultant for the past 20 years, I invited him to share his tactical insights, tips, and frameworks that you can implement right away. Gustavo Razzetti is the CEO and Founder of Fearless Culture. Gustavo has helped leaders from Fortune 500 startups, nonprofits, and everything in between on every continent except Antarctica. He's the creator of the Culture Design Canvas, a framework used by thousands of teams and organizations across the world to map, assess, and design their cultures. He is a prolific writer and author of four books on culture change, including his most recent book called Remote Not Distant. His insights have been featured in the New York Times, Psychology Today, Forbes, BBC, and Fortune, among others. — RESOURCES MENTIONED — Connect with Gustavo gustavorazzetti.com linkedin.com/in/gustavorazzetti Remote Not Distant: Design a Company Culture That Will Help You Thrive in a Hybrid Workplace by Gustavo Razzetti FearlessCulture.Design - over 600 free articles and tools on different topics of culture, leadership, and team building to help increase your team's workplace collaboration, agility, and innovation.

Years after the events of the 1984 Olympics, Sean Murray was inspired to write his book “If Gold Is Our Destiny – How a Team of Mavericks Came Together for Olympic Glory”. Sean interviewed the players and coaches of the 1984 men's volleyball team and discovered what brought them together to achieve Olympic glory. What makes this so powerful is that, less than two years earlier this U.S. team was not even in the top 10, worldwide. Listen to this episode of The Teamwork Advantage as Sean shares some of what the team did to win gold and, more importantly, to change the way volleyball is played today, almost 40 years later.The foundation of what made the 1984 men's Olympic volleyball team successful, all those years ago, is easily be applied to your teams today. Sean is quick to point out that the best players do not make the best team. Sometimes, it is more important to make sure that our team members are in the best positions to help the team.

Through her business and her Passion for Dance podcast, Chelsea has had the opportunity to work with a variety of teams from all around the nation. We get into topics like the difference between belonging and “fitting in”, signs of a healthy vs. unhealthy team culture, the importance of not only setting–but following through–with team values, and our words as leaders (and how they can shape our team's self-talk).Chelsea currently runs a company providing online and in-person educational resources for dancers and dance educators including digital courses, memberships, and workshops to help you learn and thrive.

For over 25 years, he has worked with numerous Olympians, Paralympians, World Champion Athletes, Grand Slam Champions, Fortune 500 companies, NCAA colleges including LSU, Duke and the University of Minnesota, Nissan, along with football clubs such as Rangers, Benfica and PSG. An author of 5 best selling books, Allistair is also a 29 time marathon finisher and former 5 time World Championship competitor in the sport of Duathlon (which he explains to us!). We spoke about his journey from Ballymena, Northern Ireland to South Africa, and to Florida (where he lives!)... and why champion minded became his calling after a very successful personal sporting career. He unpacked what separates the best of the best, and why joy and fun is so important in elite team environments - but also when children are participating in sport - that must be the goal! Allistair leaned into coachability, work ethic, attitude and hunger, and why these ingredients are vital. Please check out his podcast, upcoming book and his coaching/ mentorship programme at www.allistairmccaw.com Key Highlights:

Strategic thinking skills are one of the most sought-after skills in the business world.According to Harvard Business Review, “[Because] organizations face unprecedented challenges, fostering the creativity necessary to develop truly breakthrough ideas has become more important than ever.”Anyone can follow a pre-established recipe. It takes expert strategic thinkers, though, to know when that recipe is no longer working. In this post, we are going to cover how great strategic thinkers give companies a competitive advantage in the marketplace. If you develop this critical skill, you will create new opportunities for yourself and be elevated to higher-level positions in your organization.What Is Strategic Thinking and How Does It Help You Become a Better Leader?In order to understand the importance of this skill, let's start at the beginning. What exactly is strategic thinking? And why are strategic thinking skills so important to business success?Definition of Strategic Thinking.Strategic Thinking (Critical Thinking) is a process of identifying ways to move a person, team, or organization toward a long-term goal. When you think strategically, you have to anticipate setbacks and challenges and have a plan to deal with them. You also have to measure your progress toward the goal.A good way to explain this is to think about playing Chess. A good strategy will anticipate how your opponent will move and plan your own moves well in advance. So, strategic thinking is planning combined with adapting to changes in order to reach the ultimate goal.Personally, I believe that the absolute most-effective strategic thinkers are those who are also adjusting the long-term goal consistently as well. At times, you may find that your goal isn't big enough. In those cases, you want to increase the goal. In others, the marketplace may change, or we may uncover competitive intelligence where we change the goal altogether.Going back to the Chess example, in some cases, a good leader may realize, “Whoa, we aren't playing Chess at all. This is a brand new game.”How Does Thinking this Way Help You Be a Better Leader?My team went through this with the Covid-19 pandemic. At the very start of the spread, our strategy was to reschedule meetings postponed due to meeting restrictions. Next, we had to adapt when the restrictions increased and the weeks of delay turned into months.Eventually, we realized that our customers were being forced to transform their in-person meetings into virtual ones. Many of these customers had little or no experience organizing big virtual meetings. Since we had that expertise, we were able to adapt quickly to the new needs of the market. Good leaders are able to do this.Poor leaders tend to be more reactionary. When challenges develop, the poor leader is always playing catch-up. This type of leadership is like playing baseball and just watching the ball go by you. The more times that you do this, the more strikes are against you. Eventually, you have to swing out of desperation. A better strategy is to study the pitcher. If he throws his fastball high in the strike zone 80% of the time on the first pitch, I can anticipate that. When I see that action, I can capitalize on it. If he doesn't, I make an adjustment on the second pitch.Show Notes: Make Strategic Thinking Part of Your Team Culture (https://www.leadersinstitute.com/strategic-thinking-make-strategic-thinking-part-of-your-team-culture/)

Getting people to join and stay in your team can be a tough yet rewarding experience for a leader. Learning the value of a team at the start of your venture can help your business grow exponentially. In this episode, we're excited to share how John Kitchens and John Gluch talk about one of the most important processes in your business. Get great insights and information from the hiring process, onboarding, and a lot more! Show Notes 2:37 Getting To Know John Gluch In 2003, after earning a finance degree from Arizona State University, John began a full-time career in real estate. He worked with a friend who started a company that flips houses and fell in love with real estate. John has also assembled passionate teams to support clients in every facet of buying or selling their homes. 6:00 How Valuable A Team Is John learned how valuable a team is early on in his career. While others hire agents and put them on commission, he employs people and pays them a salary. This strategy worked and made them profitable. John always knew that he needed people. The bigger the dream, the bigger the team. 9:52 Bringing People In John has two ways to keep his team excited about their earnings. He brings in people who aren't realtors but wants to begin their real estate career and still earn a salary. The second is, he does profit-sharing for the team. 14:36 The Bigger Picture Their mission is to humanize the real estate industry by creating a truly exceptional client experience for people who wants to buy homes. John shares how they align what they do with the company's core values, treating people like people. 16:57 How To Structure Salary John structured agents' salaries on a 60% salary 40% profit share model. He also has other programs like incentivizing people who help new agents, equity in the organization, giving 75% to agents who bring in their own deals, and more. 21:51 Virtual Assistant John proudly shares his experience in hiring virtual assistants overseas. People with amazing talent can do tasks without needing a license. He stressed how it saves them money and that the virtual assistants have been the best part of their company. 24:33 What Changed In VA Realm John shares how the virtual realm has changed over the years. Systems and software have improved a lot, and agencies helping business owners find the best virtual assistants they can find. The talent pool and technology are rising and the opportunity for going virtual has been massive for people and the economy. 30:36 Creating A System John gave a step-by-step approach to how he starts the process. The first is outsourcing anything you can outsource to save you time, then you have to create a system and put all the stuff in that system. Last is to create a checklist in the system that is replicable before you hire a person to teach the process. 34:33 The Hiring Process John has built an amazing hiring process for applicants. He created a system that would lead people to a video explaining the job role, mission, and the company, an applicant will then have to answer several questions. When passed, they proceed to the next step, which will depend on the job role that they applied for. 40:50 Marketing and Advertising There is no more critical marketing than your team. John recommends hiring your VAs first at job hiring sites like Monsters.com, LinkedIn, etc. 49:17 How To Ask Questions John has a set of go-to questions in a form of "examples" because the answers will make him see how they were able to get the job done and make the company better. 52:02 Onboarding Process Once hired, they learn the systems via trainual. It's a compilation of videos explaining how-to on tools, tasks, and things needed for the company. Then, they learn the core values by heart. Part of the process is on-the-job training, which is shadowing them on how they do their job.

Summary: We're going back in the archives today with an interview from 2020 with the amazing Dawn Walters of The University of Kentucky Dance Team. Dawn's approach to coaching is so relatable and refreshing. She has such genuine advice and a superpower as a coach. We talk about opening the door for more dancers of different genres and backgrounds to join a big university program. She really led us behind the curtain and shared how she runs practices, how she cleans her routines, and even how her coaching style has changed. She was really open with me when we got into some of the hard stuff and we talked about addressing race in the dance team industry and protecting yourself as a coach from that one angry parent who could tear it all down. Dawn was a UK cheerleader and dancer, and she started coaching UK in 2009. She has a long list of accomplishments including national titles, starting her own all-star gym, judging for top competitions, and, of course, just impacting so many young lives through her program at The University of Kentucky. I hope this beautiful interview brings you a dose of motivation and inspiration as we head into competition season. Pull Quotes - Dawn: “So I'm hoping that coaches will now step back and go, “Wow, okay, I was being so strict on that,” and not to be mean but just for sake of going everybody has to wear their hair in a ponytail and in a bun and whatever... Let's take that pressure off of those coaches that go, “But I have to or I'm gonna get a point taken off ‘cause everybody's hair wasn't this way.” ... It felt like I had to have a weave or I had to do this to my hair because otherwise I wouldn't have made the team or I wouldn't have been able to do things or whatever. Hopefully, those things go there. That's what I really hoped that the dialogue and the communication would be there so then your kids of color and your Black kids would feel like, “Wow. I'm accepted.” Key Highlights - [1m 53s] Team Culture [7m 52s] Dawn's Two Teams: The White Squad and The Blue Squad [11m 23s] How Dawn Runs Team Practice [19m 27s] Dawn's Cleaning Style [25m 15s] Go with the Flow!
