The ONE Question Leaders Don't Ask Themselves But Should
September 6, 2022 • 9 MIN
As leaders, we need to make big and important decisions throughout our careers. And this question has guided me to choose the right ones. We all know that I've said this line quite a lot, and that is "What does right look like?". A co-worker of mine even bought me a shirt that has that phrase printed! You can say that it is one of my favorite mottos not just as a leader but also as an individual person. This question serves me as my North Star, and I hope it could do the same for you.

Ep 78 Why Is Empathy Important In A Leader & How Can it Be A Superpower? With Rob Volpe
January 6, 2022 • 64 MIN
There is an empathy crisis happening globally right now. Did you know that 33% of people cannot see the viewpoint of others? Empathy can be seen as a five letter word to some people, but to Empathy Activist Rob Volpe Empathy is the "E" word. When people think about being empathetic they get scared, confused, frustrated or don't understand. They think they have to give up their own beliefs system to be empathetic. NOT TRUE! Empathy is about understanding the gap between what is going on with another person and yourself and provides the opportunity to compromise, collaboration, and work toward solution and resolution. Simply said, empathy can be defined in two words: understanding and connection. This episode is jammed packed with tips, tactics, examples and explanation you won't want to miss! Highlights: The difference between Sympathy and Empathy: Sympathy is a feeling FOR someone, that can create a power dynamic (not always in a bad way). Empathy is a feeling with someone, to be able to feel what the other is feeling and truly understand what is happening for that person at that moment in time. Cognitive Empathy and Why it is important in the workplace: stepping into someone else's shoes to understand where they are coming from and figuring out how you can co-exist In Rob's new book, Tell Me More About That: Solving The Empathy Crisis, he provides the exact 5 Steps to Being Empathetic in life, at work and as a leader: 1. Dismantle Judgement - Self Awareness 2. Asking Good Questions - Tell Me More About That 3. Actively Listen - Be Present 4. Integrating Into Your Understanding - Put Your Own Perspective Aside 5. Using Solution Imagination - Putting Yourself Into The Shoes Of Somebody Else To pre-order/order a copy of the book: 5stepstoempathy.com or wherever books are sold.

Ep 76 The Human Side of Crisis, Leading Teams in Unprecedented Times : A Former Fire Chief's Story - Pt. 2
December 30, 2021 • 26 MIN
Jamie Coutts, Host of Podcast, Growing Up Fire and one of the stars of Discovery Channel's Hellfire Hero's,28 years in the fire service, Jamie discusses with me the different types of stress that you encounter in leading teams during crisis, things you think of and things you don't that you should. Jamie discusses the critical leadership tactics when you really have to think outside the box, and recognize nothing you learned in the books will help you at the moment in time. Step back, evaluate the situation and make a plan of action to protect the lives and safety of the people in the community and your team. Since retirement from the fire service, Jamie works in private industry and continues to lead but in a different way. In this interview he reflects on leading teams during unprecedented times and offers the tried and tested methods he used while leading the Slave Lake firefighters (volunteer and paid) during a fire that destroyed most of the Town. One of the most important decisions he made and still stands by today, was recognizing the human side of leadership and that he is leading people first, and the human side of crisis can be worse than the actual event. The fire fighters he was leading were not only fighting to save the town, but also dealing with loss of their homes, distraught and scared family members and emotions were running high. As a leader he had to give permission to the team to take care of themselves and their family despite the numerous fires burning around them. Those things still hold true today, regardless of the situation, you need to recognize the people, the stress they are not saying and adapt your plan. Jamie provides insights on prioritizing tasks and supporting teams while working remotely and how he would monitor for continued high performance. In crisis and unfamiliar situations humans have a tendency to say no first; Jamie says we need to start with yes and then figure out the how later, the how does not need to be perfect we just need to do something. This philosophy holds true in our current environment, if we were to ask business owners and corporations about having all of their staff working from home prior to 2020 it would have been a resounding no, yet for the most part we've done it, has it been perfect, no, but we continue to refine and move forward each time we are thrown a curve ball. 🎤Audio your thing?

In this episode I talk to Suzanne Bernier, a former journalist and government press secretary, and is now a multi-certified, award-winning and internationally-recognized crisis management consultant, speaker and author, who has helped governments, communities and companies plan for, respond to, or recover from disasters for over twenty years. According to Suzanne, for every disaster reported in the media, there are thousands of inspiring and uplifting stories we don’t ever hear about. Disaster Heroes seeks to change this by highlighting and empowering helpers and heroes from around the world to make a difference following disasters.

Ep 68 10 Minute Leadership Tactic- Are You Truly Listening OR or Are You Formulating Your Response
December 9, 2021 • 9 MIN
We've all heard the phrase you were given two ears and one mouth for a reason. On this episode we talk about active listening and the key to winning the war on focusing on the conversation. Do you spend more time formulating the response to your team in your head when you ask for an explanation? Do you have a preconceived idea and don't listen to the story? If so you are doing yourself and your team a huge disservice. As leaders we need to be locked into what someone is saying to be truly listening to what someone is saying instead of formulating our response or having a preconceived notion before the person talks. Restatement is the key to success, slow down and listen, when you reflect back to whoever you are talking to you are giving them, point one, two three of what you have hear. When you are actively listening you are giving the attention to the conversation that it deserves. With open ears and open minds, join in and comment on the conversation and discover if you are truly listening or are you formulating your response and missing the story. 🎤Audio your thing?

👆 Don't miss a release! Hit Like & Subscribe now ddbtube.com Why don't I use the term servant leadership? Leaders serve teams so why not use it? I think it misses a huge point in which leadership is all about. Ultimately the leader is accountable for the outcome. A servant in the purest form of the word serves. Being a leader is not just that, one of the challenges and "burdens" of being a leader is to drive results and outcomes, it's what's expected of you! Don't get me wrong, there is a component of leading that does serve, but it's not the entire job. 👋 Servant Leadership Short: https://youtu.be/zotzkO9zYsw 🎤Audio your thing?
