E58: “How to get your team moving in the same direction” with Jeff Wald, Writer, Speaker, Entrepreneur
If you asked your team the mission of your company, would each person have a similar answer? Or would their answers be all over the place? As a serial entrepreneur, Jeff knows that if you want to get your team moving in the same direction, it takes a well-defined culture -- one that is put into practice daily. If your team doesn’t know who you are, why you're there, where you're going, and what you stand for, you could be setting your company up for failure… In this Powerful at Work Radio podcast episode, Jeff also talks about the future of remote work and why leaders should be open minded when considering this as an option for their team. He urges leaders to be cautious about jumping to conclusions before researching the facts. Episode Outline: [02:14] Using history and data patterns to predict the future of work... [06:18] Does productivity really require presence in the office? [11:26] We're a social animal, we actually don't want to be locked away in our homes... [23:02] I will tell you that the biggest mistake I made was that we did not have a culture document. [28:18] Making the tough decision to let go of a high performing team member that doesn’t embrace your culture or share your values... About Jeff Wald: Jeff Wald is the Founder of Work Market, an enterprise software platform that enables companies to manage freelancers (acquired by ADP). Jeff has founded several other technology companies, including Spinback, a social sharing platform (eventually purchased by salesforce.com). Jeff began his career in finance, serving as Managing Director at activist hedge fund Barington Capital Group, a Vice President at venture capital firm GlenRock and various roles in the M&A Group at JP Morgan. Jeff is an active angel investor and startup advisor, as well as serving on numerous public and private Boards of Directors. He also formerly served as an officer in the Auxiliary Unit of the New York Police Department.

E53: “Getting your team to embrace and believe in new ways of doing things” with Keith Murley, Business & Technology Executive

Oftentimes people fear that the new way of doing things will actually complicate things or even take longer than doing things “the way we’ve always done them”. And leaders are met with resentment.

Graduating early from high school, he studied computer information systems and completed further specialized training in the areas of strategic business management, disaster recovery / business continuity, and network administration.

E10: Breaking down walls and getting into a state of play with Marli Williams, Master Facilitator, Activation Coach & Inspiration Generator
Marli Williams wants people to play with a purpose. When people play ”full on”, they are willing to mess up and let go of being perfect. It’s called being “FUNcomfortable”.

Marli challenges us to let go of the idea that we have to be robots - we’re human beings! Tune in to hear more about how empathy and connection leads to collaboration and innovation...

E9: Choice is your greatest gift, especially in adversity.
Rosa reminds us how adversity happens to everyone, it's a fact of life.  We get to decide how to respond to adversity and how it can make us better and remind us about how our decisions affect others.  Even when leadership fails us, or when others fail to see how their role has an impact on others, you can make a difference by choosing not to let it distort your values or who you are in those moments.  This is part two of the conversation about day zero. Join us at our growing facebook community, https://facebook.com/groups/empowertobloomtribe, for more interaction and resources to help you achieve fulfillment and live at your greatest potential.

E8: How have you prepared for Day Zero?
Rosa draws a parallel between Day Zero in the police academy and the day zero we all face in real life.  Day Zero is the day before Day One at your dream job.  It is the gut check that happens when you are under pressure and you're not sure how badly you really want it.  It is where you get to work through insecurities and decide that you will not quit.  We all have a day zero and it is a day we can prepare for so that, when it happens, we don't just survive it, we leave a mark that removes any doubt that you belong there.  Day Zero cannot take you out, only you can disqualify yourself.

E2: Are you giving away your power?
We have both intrinsic power and power that is given to us from external sources, and it is neither good nor bad.  It is what we do with it that makes its effects good or bad.  When we give our power away, we also defer important decisions about our future that are ours to make.  Take a look at how you've been giving away your power and decide to be intentional about revealing your inner greatness.
