KGS77 | The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side Helps Leaders Succeed by Kingsley Grant
+++ BECOME CURIOUS +++ How many times have you heard the statement that the grass is greener on the other side?  How many of those times that you've heard or read it, has it been stated in a positive manner? When I have heard or read it, it is almost always in a sarcastic or a cautionary way.  It's almost always followed up by statements such as: "if you'd water and nurture your grass, it too would be green" or something like that. Is that so for you as well? In this episode, get ready to hear another take that could change from now on, how you use or interpret that phrase.

+++ MADE TO ASK +++ Do you know that the answers you get are based on the questions you ask? I know this seems like a no-brainer.

KGS66 Scared Straight Is A Good Movie Title But Poor Leadership Strategy by Kingsley Grant
+++ BEHAVE YOURSELF +++ Have anyone ever said to you, "behave yourself?" When you hear these words now, what comes to your mind? For me, it's like someone reprimanding a child. It's a parent trying to "straighten" their child out. It's getting him or her to do what's right.  But, do you hear a condescending tone in those words? Why is it that some leaders speak to their team members as if they are a little child or in a condescending way? It may surprise you as to their reason. In this episode, you'll hear why they do so and how effective is this approach.

As someone who speaks a lot and records quite a bit of my speaking, I will hear something that I said, which wasn't what I really intended to say. Sometimes I misspeak, quote the wrong person, forget to come back to a point I was making, and more. If someone had told me that I did, I would fight them tooth and nail, denying that I did. Haha. Don't laugh. You've done it too. In this episode, you'll discover that it happens to the best of us. Take heart.

KGS64 Diversity Programs Will Almost Always Fail Without This One Acknowledgment by Kingsley Grant
+++ DIVERSITY CONUNDRUM +++ There is a buzz about diversity that is more prevalent now than ever before. Businesses, organizations, and other entities are offering sensitivity training for their team members, to make sure they become more understanding of other people groups. The problem I find is that when this training is offered or mentioned, it tend to elevate one particular group over another and use diversity as the covering for the advancement of that group. This is problematic on many fronts. Who decides which group gets more attention? Should anyone group get more attention than the other? These are some of the tough issues discussed in this episode.

+++ BOSS HOGG +++ You might not be old enough to remember the TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard" or just maybe you do. I'm going to assume you do because only you would be able to appreciate this analogy. Sorrell Booke was an American actor who played the role as corrupt politician Jefferson Davis aka "Boss" Hogg." He was a one-of-a-kind "boss." I found him to be hilarious.  He played his role very well. His style of leadership was the in-thing at the time. However, it would not and does not work today.

KGS62 Leaders Who Skip This Step Is Doomed To Fail As A leader by Kingsley Grant
+++ LEADERS DOOMSDAY +++ Doomsday? That seems so extreme to put leaders and doomsday together. But is it possible that some leaders are creating their own doomsday? Dictionary dot com gives this definition of the word doomsday: a time or event of crisis or great danger.

KGS55 Science Shows That Leaders Who Smile Are More Likely To Succeed by Kingsley Grant
+++ SHOW THOSE WHITE ENAMELS +++ "A smile spurs a chemical reaction in the brain, releasing certain hormones including dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine increases our feelings of happiness. Serotonin release is associated with reduced stress. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression and aggression,” says Dr. Gupta. Imagine you as a leader, not smiling. What do you think the mood of the environment will be? What do you think will be projected onto your team members? Lastly, what are the chances you will succeed with your team? Your answer to the last question should be zero. In this episode, you'll discover the tie-in with a lack of smile and leadership success.

KGS51 Do You Recognize The 7 Early Warning Signs Of Team Dysfunction by Kingsley Grant
+++ EARLY WARNING SIGNS +++ Don't you wish you knew what early warning signs to always look in different situation so that you could do something about it? I know that there are somethings outside our control that we are helpless in doing much to stop it, but we can prepare ourselves, if we know. One of the things I coach people to do is create two imaginary buckets and label one, controllable and the other, uncontrollable. I then ask them to separate what they are experiencing and put them in appropriate buckets. Once they do that, they only spend their time and energy on the controllable bucket. In this episode, I share about my heart surgery and early warning signs as it relates to leadership and team dysfunction. The book mentioned, The Emotelligent Leader, is now available on Amazon.

KGS41 Lonely At The Top Is Failed Leadership by Kingsley Grant
+++ IT'S YOUR FAULT +++ When a leader says it is lonely at the top, what they are saying, without realizing it, is that they have failed to lead well.  I'm sure they're not thinking that. It is their way of wanting others to somewhat feel sorry for them and to exercise patience with them; give them some grace. Other leaders have heard the phrase parroted and may have simply adopted without giving it much thought as to what it possible means. In this episode, I dismantled this readily accepted mantra and provided an alternative way of looking at "at the top" leadership. The book, The Emotelligent Leader, is now available on Amazon.

How do you upgrade your emotional intelligence? What does it even mean upgrading one's emotional intelligence? I recently went to one of my favorite fast-food joint ... Chic-Fil-A. At the register, the attendant asked me if I wanted to upgrade my order to a large from a medium. I politely said no. A medium will suffice. I did that simply from a "watching my diet" standpoint.

I can only imagine it had to do with a cat trying hard to get a better view of something and died in the process. Who knows. But this I know: when I heard it, it was said in the context of "you are asking too many questions" and "it's none of your business." This almost led to my death, not physically, but in another way. In this episode you will hear how being curious makes you a better leader as it did for me.

KGS22 How To Be An Attractive Leader Without A Facelift with Kingsley Grant
The word attractive and leader may be misleading to some. It may suggest that I'm talking about physique. Quite the contrary. That would be beyond my paygrade.  However, the term is used in different ways. Many people, including myself, have a leader or leaders in mind, that we would want to be like. There's something about them that draws us to them. That is what is meant by the term attractive leader.

KGS21 The Term Strong Leader Could Be Misleading with Kingsley Grant
What does it mean to say someone is a strong leader? Do people understand what is being meant? One person in one part of the world may have one definition while someone in another part of the world may have another. Who is right?  There is not a universal definition for the term. It is rather a relative term.  The unfortunate thing is that what is passed off as being a strong leader could be very misleading to say the least. Many atrocities are taking place under that very term and it gives place to reproducing after its kind, which could be harmful to many. In this episode, you'll be provoked to reconsider and find a better way to describe leadership.

KGS19 Leaders Who Smile Are More Likely To Succeed with Kingsley Grant
Do you smile often? What do people say when you do?  Even though people might not say what they're thinking or feeling when they see you smile, research shows that it has an Effect on them.  A recent study  is published in the journal Psychological Bulletin showed that people who smile tend to be happier. When leaders adapt smile as one of their "tools of the trade," they will get more positive results from team members. In my new book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed, I point out this very idea even before reading this study. I make the case for leaders to smile more because it makes them more approachable and warm. These outcomes lead to more harmony, joy, and productivity. Happy people make people happy.

KGS18 Leadership Without Emotional Intelligence Is Like Diet Without Exercise with Kingsley Grant
Have you ever tried dieting without exercising or exercising without a modified diet? How did that work out for you? On the other hand, have you done both and did you notice a difference? I have.  When I combined a modified diet alongside exercising, I saw the difference. The results were noticeable by those who knew me. I basked in the compliments I received. I must confess that I've not been as disciplined as I was when I lost the weight and was better toned. I have slacked off and noticed the difference. Thankfully, I"m still ahead in the gain compartment. In this episode, you will discover why leadership without emotional intelligence is mediocre at best and how it relates very much to diet and exercise. Please share this episode with at least one other person and leave a review and a comment about your thoughts about the show. It would be very much appreciated.

KGS16: Leaders and Personal Development with Kingsley Grant
Personal Development, what is it? Is it really necessary for leaders to concern themselves with it? Does it make a difference whether they do or not? It all depends on who you ask. If you ask someone who is mediocre and simply average in their leadership position, you'll more than likely hear "it is not necessary. It's just one more way for someone trying to get you to spend money on some stupid program. I've been leading forever, and look at me." Yes, look at them. See the results they are having. What kind of people do they have around them ... the elites or those who are as average as them. Next, look at the overall productivity level of the organization. I could go on. Suffice it to say, I would suggest seeking out the opinion of another leader; one who is crushing it and whose people cannot say enough good things about them. Listen to them. In this episode, you'll hear the argument as to why every leader needs to develop him or herself in two main areas.

In life we are often told that there are things that do not give us a chance to have a do-over.

However, when it comes to leadership, you have a chance for a do-over. In this episode, you'll discover how to do a leadership do-over.

KGS12 Transformational Leadership Increases Productivity and Profitability with Kingsley Grant
 Transformational leaders have an advantage over other types of leaders. They do so simply by their ability to educate, inform, and inspire. Not every leader is able to do this. Research bears this out. Researchers Ken W. Perry & Alan Bryman (2006) had this to say about transformational leaders: “The transforming leader raises the aspirations of his or her followers such that the leader’s and the follower’s aspirations are fused.”  Other researchers such as Dasborough and Ashkanasy (2002) also had this to say: Transformational leaders “feel strongly affiliated with the leader and have an unquestionable willingness to obey their leader’s instructions.” In this episode I shared how to become a transformational leader and thereby see an increase in productivity and profitability.  And remember, you are one skill away from becoming the leader everyone loves and wants to follow.

KG11 Emotelligent Leaders Show Emotions with Kingsley Grant
Some leaders think that the word emotions and leadership should not be written in the same sentence. It is distasteful to them. Many of these leaders associate weakness with emotions. It also makes them vulnerable and open to be taken advantage of. At least that is what they think. However, nothing could be farther from the truth.  Leaders show emotions everyday but many times in the wrong way or in a negative way. They'll get angry at their staff/team, berate people, "lose it" by throwing a temper tantrum, but not think that is showing emotions. In my new book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed, I took the time to elaborate on this topic. Make sure you get a copy once it is released, which should be within a couple of weeks or less. Be on the lookout for the announcement. I will make it here on the show as well.

KG10 Show Vulnerability Without Losing Respect with Kingsley Grant
When you hear the word vulnerable, what comes to your mind? Here’s what most people think when they hear the word vulnerability (.See if any of this applies to you): * weak * risky * lose respect The one that is most often referenced, is the risk. Yes, it can be risky, but when you think of the benefits it’s worth it. Inspirational Poem: William Arthur Ward on “Risk” To laugh is to risk appearing a fool, To weep is to risk appearing sentimental To reach out to another is to risk involvement, To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss To love is to risk not being loved in return, To hope is to risk despair, To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live. Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom. Only a person who risks is free. The pessimist complains about the wind; The optimist expects it to change; And the realist adjusts the sails. ~William Arthur Ward Benefits: 1. You are seen as human with experiences that makes you relatable - fallible 2. Invites reciprocity in sharing which leads to deeper relationship 3. Allows for more of an empathetic culture  Caution: 1. Appropriate sharing 2. Not self-serving 3. Timing Remember, you are 1 Skill Away From ....

It Is Your Mood Dude with Kingsley Grant
Many times leaders do not realize that their mood sets the stage for performance and that productivity is tied directly to the how they manage it.  In this episode I talk about what happens when leaders show up to lead their teams with a "foul" attitude or mood.  As a person from the rural area in Jamaica, I am used to seeing roaches scurrying to corners whenever the light disrupt the darkness. This is what team-members do when a leader shows up in a "foul" mood. In my new to be released book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed, I discuss how leaders can manage their emotions and those of the team members to get better results.

KG04 Influential Leaders Different Outcomes and Why with Kingsley Grant
How is that some leaders would earn the title of being influential but the outcomes of their leadership is one to be desired whereas the other leader, is everything one would want to emulate? In this episode I discuss the tales of two leaders: Martin Luther King Jr. and Jim Jones. The two leaders would be considered influential in their own ways, yet the outcome from their leadership, even though having profound impact in different ways, are outcomes that are looked upon in different ways.

10 Required Pledges All Leaders Need To Make
Why do Sororities and Fraternities have their members sign pledges? Why do they have standardize pledges?   Having not much knowledge of either, I'm going to guess that it's to make things uniform and make sure everyone abide by the same principles. If you know otherwise, I'm open to learn. If my assumption is correct and even if it's not, why is it that there is not a standardized "pledge" that leaders sign prior to becoming "members" of the leadership league? My mission of this and other episodes, is to disrupt leadership as we know it. That is one of the reasons I've wrote my soon to be released new book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed. In this book, I discuss a number of these issues and at the end of the book, I recommend that leaders take a pledge to enter the league of Elite Leadership. In this episode, I go through all ten of them in a summarized way. Let me know your thoughts of agreement or disagreement and if you think I should have included another pledge.

Are You Quantified To Lead with Kingsley Grant
Ask almost every leader whether or not they are qualified to lead and the answer will be "of course!" It will almost always be in a defensive manner. I get it why they would almost feel offended if asked. But what about quantified? This would immediately have them think, like you might be thinking, that there was a mistake made in using the word quantified, thinking it should be qualified. In this episode I made the case for quantified leadership rather than qualified leadership. I reference my soon to be released book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed because I discuss a whole lot more there.
