009. Rewarding And Recognizing Employees, With Dr. Bob Nelson
In today's volatile business climate, it has become increasingly difficult to attract, retain, and engage valuable employees. As leaders scramble for solutions to improve company performance, they usually end up considering the thorny question of how to build an inspired workplace culture.Thankfully, there are several answers for inspiring and engaging employees, and perhaps the most powerfully supported by research is the use of employee rewards and recognition. However, new research reveals another powerful business lever leaders can use to engage employees: the construct of 'workplace pride'.In this episode, we meet the author of several highly-regarded books on this topic, Dr. Bob Nelson. Dr. Bob is a thought leader, keynote speaker, consultant, and multi-million-copy bestselling author of books such as '1501 Ways to Reward Employees' and '1001 Ways to Engage Employees'. Dr. Bob is also co-researcher of 'The WorkProud Study', a groundbreaking research effort that revealed the powerful impact of workplace pride on employee experience.Download the WorkProud Study:  best ways to connect with Dr. Bob Nelson online are:Website:  the WORKPROUD Podcast:In this podcast, we feature stories from highly successful leaders and experts who have built impressive influence and business success by leading with WorkProud® principles.

008: The Future-Ready Leader, With Jacob Morgan
Let's do a quick thought experiment. Call three of your colleagues and ask them for a definition of leadership. Here's my guess: you'll get more than three different answers back! This points to an interesting paradox. So many of us may have different ways of describing leadership, and yet, very few organizations have done the hard work of defining, identifying, and training the ranks of their employees to understand that 'leadership' is more than a title; it is something you do, and it requires practice to get really good at it.In this episode, we meet Jacob Morgan, 4x best-selling author, TED and keynote speaker, professionally trained futurist, and the founder of The Future of Work University. Jacob is on a mission to help organizations grow and nurture "Future-Ready Leaders."My Favorite Quotes from Jacob Morgan in this episode, (paraphrased):“The first thing we must accept is that Leadership is changing, and so must we!”“Leadership is about the people you serve — not you!”“Invest in your people and you'll unlock their discretionary effort!”"You need people to get to profits!"The best ways to connect with Jacob Morgan online are:Email: jacob@thefutureorganization.comWebsite: Download: 9 Skills & Mindsets For Leadership Mastery the WORKPROUD Podcast:In this podcast, we feature stories from highly successful leaders and experts who have built impressive influence and business success by leading with WorkProud® principles.

007: Getting UNSTUCK At Work, With Lia Garvin
After all that we've learned at work about technical skills, ability, intelligence, and even talent, it turns out that getting ahead still boils down to how well we can deal with PEOPLE ... doesn't it? Well, within the 'people' context—especially in today's 'new normal'—workplaces are experiencing significant change and transition. The key question many of us have is this: how do we set ourselves up for 'people' success in these trying times?In this episode, we meet Lia Garvin, executive coach, and operations leader at influential companies including Microsoft, Apple, and Google. In her new book, Unstuck, Lia shows us how to harness the power of perspectives to re-envision and reinvent our approach to work and, well, life, to achieve more, stress less, and overcome the barriers that stand in our way. My Favorite Quotes from Lia Garvin in this episode, (paraphrased):“We need to create Inclusion-Centered Companies!”“We need psychological safety!”“Accept that we will need to experiment for a while to get through these transitions!”The best ways to connect with Lia Garvin online are:Website: the WORKPROUD Podcast:In this podcast, we feature stories from highly successful leaders and experts who have built impressive influence and business success by leading with WorkProud® principles.
