Have you thought about changing people? Maybe, the way they hand in reports. Maybe, it’s the way they show up for a meeting. Now the question becomes, can you change people? That isn’t so easy to answer and definitely isn’t easy to do. Howie Jacobson joins Kevin to discuss resistance to change. He says change is just a discontinuity of the past.

Don't Take Yes for an Answer with Steve Herz on The Remarkable Leadership Podcast with Kevin Eikenberry

How do you give feedback? Maybe the better question is, how do you receive feedback? Steve Herz believes we need to create the environment for the give and take. Once we can accept feedback and take action to improve ourselves, giving feedback is easier and more accepting. Steve is the author of DON’T TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER: Using Authority, Warmth, and Energy to Get Exceptional Results. Steve and Kevin discuss the AWE model and the “soft skills” we don’t focus on or dedicate resources to building. Yet, these skills help us become more confidence-inspiring and more respected, leading to more trust in your team. Steve shares examples of the model in action and how this now plays out in our current work environment.

In this episode, Steve discusses:

  • Feedback.
  • The AWE model – authority, warmth, and energy.

Leadership Tough Love with Timothy Lupfer – #217

Share:

Leadership Tough Love with Timothy Lupfer on The Remarkable Leadership Podcast with Kevin Eikenberry

Timothy Lupfer wants us to get back to basics about leadership. It is a role we are usually given and involves followers (whether they be employees, students…). Leadership is narrower than most of us think. Leadership is the role of affecting followers to achieve organizational goals. Tim is a retired Army, former consultant, and the author of Leadership Tough Love: Examining Leaders Through the Lens of Reality. He shares with Kevin his thoughts about leadership and why it’s more than just a position. He discusses scalability, specifically as it relates to the number of true relationships we have. Leaders need to focus on their immediate group, and we need good leaders at every level (to keep close relationships).

In this episode, Tim discusses:

  • The connection between teachers and leaders.
  • Leadership tough love.
  • Important difference between specialists and leaders (and the need for both).
  • Is the world truly changing faster than before?
