EP 46 | 5 Books to Change the Way You Lead | Chad Lingafelt
Do you struggle with wanting to improve your Leadership skills or develop personally to be a better leader? On this episode of Coffee Break, Chad Lingafelt shares the 5 books that helped him develop personally and the impact it had on the way he leads our organization.  Book 1: Turn the Ship Around - L. David Marquet Turn the Ship Around! is the true story of how the Santa Fe skyrocketed from worst to first in the fleet by challenging the U.S. Navy's traditional leader-follower approach. Struggling against his own instincts to take control, he instead achieved the vastly more powerful model of giving control. No matter your business or position, you can apply Marquet's radical guidelines to turn your own ship around. The payoff: a workplace where everyone around you is taking responsibility for their actions, where people are healthier and happier, where everyone is a leader. Book 2: Powerful - Patty McCord McCord advocates practicing radical honesty in the workplace, saying good-bye to employees who don’t fit the company’s emerging needs, and motivating with challenging work, not promises, perks, and bonus plans. Her road-tested advice, offered with humor and irreverence, provides readers a different path for creating a culture of high performance and profitability. Powerful will change how you think about work and the way a business should be run. Book 3: Radical Candor - Kim Scott The idea is simple: You don't have to choose between being a pushover and a jerk. Using Radical Candor—avoiding the perils of Obnoxious Aggression, Manipulative Insincerity, and Ruinous Empathy—you can be kind and clear at the same time. Radical Candor is about caring personally and challenging directly, about soliciting criticism to improve your leadership and also providing guidance that helps others grow. It focuses on praise but doesn't shy away from criticism—to help you love your work and the people you work with. Book 4: The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team - Patrick M. Lencioni Lencioni's utterly gripping tale serves as a timeless reminder that leadership requires as much courage as it does insight. Throughout the story, Lencioni reveals the five dysfunctions which go to the very heart of why teams even the best ones-often struggle. He outlines a powerful model and actionable steps that can be used to overcome these common hurdles and build a cohesive, effective team. Book 5: Traction - Gino Wickman Do you have a grip on your business, or does your business have a grip on you? In Traction, you’ll learn the secrets of strengthening the six key components of your business. You’ll discover simple yet powerful ways to run your company that will give you and your leadership team more focus, more growth, and more enjoyment.

EP 45 | Transforming Your Team Through Informative Meetings | Guest: Thomas Heavey
You Don't have to dread having Meetings!  On this episode of Coffee Break, Chad Lingafelt chats with Thomas Heavey, our Training Director, about how we've transformed our Team and Company Culture through informative Meetings.  We dive deep into Why we do Team Meetings, How we do Team meetings, & the Benefits of these meetings.  We have 3 Major Meetings at Loc-Doc Security: All Team Meeting on Monday Morning to Kick off the Week  (15 minute Conference Call) All Team Meeting on Wednesday Morning (90 minute Group Gathering at Headquarters) Leadership Meeting Following the All Team on Wednesdays (30 minutes) How you manage your meetings reflects the leadership and management of your Organization! If the meeting is inconsistent with starting on time, or there is no specific goals set or outcome for the meeting, your business is probably run in the same fashion. You can send a clear message about your culture to your team by the way that you or your leadership conducts meetings.  Be sure that your team members know in advance what is expected ; having clear expectations of start and end times can help inspire efficient and productive meetings.  Here are 7 Tips that have helped to improve our meetings!  Tip 1: Start on Time We ensure each meeting starts on time and ends on time, that everyone is on the call or in their seat because we respect each team members time. It's a simple but effective message to send when your meetings start on time and end on time.  We strive to honor our dismissal time so that our team and our customers won't be impacted by any late arrivals.  One of the first things that we do to kick off our Wednesday Team Meetings, is to have each team member share 1 positive thing that happened during the week.  Starting the conversation on a positive and encouraging note helps to drive the right culture of positivity leaving everyone in a great frame of mind and receptive to learning.  Tip 2: Keep it On Track We have a set agenda or format to keep the meeting on track. After discussing and informing the team of new items to be aware of or upcoming events, we usually break into small groups to focus on specialized training for each department. This ensures that we utilize the time wisely and our small groups can focus on developing their skill set within their own realm. For example, we have different education specifically for team members in the electronics division, locksmith division, and even accounting department.  Instead of broad education with all team members, we get down to the micro level.  Tip 3: Use a Shareable Platform We use Google slides to present in meetings which is easy to utilize, has the ability to have multiple contributors, and everyone is able to manage their portion of the presentation. Tip 4: Collaborate with your Leadership We gather once a week with our leaders to communicate 4 things in each department. A Big Win - Something Accomplished that they've been working on.  Benchmarks - What is expected and is it being met? What they need help with Next Big Thing - What they are working on? We ensure this meeting is brief and efficient by making it technology free (no cell phones or distractions). This helps us stay in unity throughout the week and has helped to speed up the growth of our organization by creating motion.  For the rest of the tips, go to locdoc.net/blog for more information about our meetings, or for shareable examples of our meetings, contact us through email info@locdoc.net
