Podcast cover

Here’s a stat for you: 65% of employees would forego a raise to see their leader fired. According to Adam Brantley, executive coach at Building Champions, those employees need leaders that coach their people—rather than just telling them what to do. Listen in as we discuss how coaching leadership can change companies for the better, how to bring coaching culture into your own company and the communication tactics that keep employees engaged.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • How Adam became an executive coach

Adam's work history, along with experience as a father to young boys and husband to an accomplished leader, has made him highly effective at priority management and work-life balance. 

Before Building Champions, Adam owned and operated a Chick-fil-A restaurant where he was successful at engaging the team around his vision and developing leaders in the organization to effectively grow the top and bottom lines. Adam loved increasing sales, but where he found his greatest passion was engaging and coaching individuals both inside and outside the walls of the restaurant.

Rank #2: HR Trends to Watch for in 2018

Podcast cover
Read more

In 2017, human resources had a heavy focus on compliance. This is typical in an inauguration year; a new administration in the White House usually brings with it changes to the tax code and other rules related to employment. While we’ll continue to see some of these changes rolled out in 2018, most will be done at the state level—like Oregon’s Equal Pay Act and changes to overtime and sick leave regulations.

But in addition to continued changes at the legislative level, we need to look ahead to adapting HR practices to reflect the workforce in 2018. In this week’s episode, Angela Perkins, Xenium HR’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, joins us to talk about the five trends businesses need to anticipate in 2018: the skill gap, employee experience, flex and remote work, technology, and data. We’ll cover the particular challenges each of these areas pose and how to tackle them in the context of our current job market.

Rank #6: Basecamp CTO and co-founder on Why it’s so crazy at work

Podcast cover
Read more

You’re super busy at work — your phone's blowing up from the overflowing inbox of notifications, reminders, and chats. There’s so much interruption that you’ve got no time to think. And when you do, you have to stay stuck at the office, working more than 40-hours a week or force yourself to pull an all-nighter to meet unrealistic deadlines. 

You don’t even have time to sleep because of your packed schedules and endless meeting. 

When weekends come, instead of spending your precious me-time relaxing and having fun, you have those Sunday-afternoon emails to worry about, waiting to be read and dealt with.

It’s just crazy!!!

But hey, work doesn’t have to be crazy. 

It’s true. We can still deliver a fantastic job without making ourselves miserable and insanely working like crazy to meet those so-called “goals.” We can have a productive work environment that lets people do their work in the best way possible.

Basecamp is setting a great example of what it’s like to have a calm and productive workplace! How can we achieve a productive workplace without sacrificing long hours and avoid getting burned out?

In today’s episode, I’ll talk about the book “It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work” with David Heinemeier Hansson, the author, CTO, and co-founder at Basecamp. We will also discuss the topic of the constant state of businesses, overworked employees, and the fact that we’re working more hours but still come out as unproductive. 

David argues that you can still have that million-dollar business without requiring your employees to work insanely long hours and he’s going to tell you how. He will also share a lot of useful advice and action ideas you can apply back to your organization! 

Grab your copy now! Check out the book here.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • What crazy means in the workplace
  • The reason behind the long work hours
  • Hustle Mania and the obsession with growth
  • Burned out and overworked employees
  • Setting your goals the Basecamp way
  • Achieving the state of calmness
  • The negative consequences of introducing technology and rejecting the “present person” practice
  • The reason why Basecamp doesn’t do shared calendars inside the office
  • How David coaches his people not to be distracted by constant interruptions from people internally and externally?
  • Office hours and part-time managers
  • David’s thoughts on work-life balance
  • Out of the office benefits vs. In office

Rank #12: Amy Edmondson on Creating Better Organizations by Building Psychological Safety in the Workplace

Podcast cover
Read more

“Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes.” ⁠— Amy Edmondson

Have you ever had a question you’ve been dying to ask in a meeting but couldn’t because when you look around, everyone is simply nodding their heads, agreeing to everything the boss says? 

No one wants to look incompetent or ignorant, especially at work. We prefer to look smart, helpful, and that we go everything covered. To avoid being labeled as ignorant or incompetent, people choose not to ask questions or admit to their mistakes. 

Sadly, innovations are delayed, and great ideas don’t come to light every time this happens. 

In this episode, Amy Edmondson will be joining me to discuss her book, The Fearless Organization: Creating psychological safety in the workplace for learning, innovation, and growth. We talk about how organizations go wrong because people lack psychological safety and never speak up due to the fear that they might never get that promotion or worse lose their job. 

Giveaway! Fearless Organization is an incredible book and I’ll be giving away 3 books to the first 3 who tweets out this podcast highlighting Amy’s work with the hashtag #fearlessorganization and tags @worktransformed @AmyCEdmondson @brandonlaws

Example Tweet: 

I loved the @worktransformed podcast with @AmyCEdmondson and host @brandonlaws discussing the #fearlessorganization. Listen here: http://bit.ly/2Fz4kCb

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • Amy’s thoughts on her book Teaming and why she wrote it
  • What is psychological safety and why is it vital in the workplace
  • Why teams are more effective in a psychologically stable workplace
  • The lack of psychological safety in a hospital setting
  • Why better teams have higher error rates
  • Open communication transparency
  • What went wrong with Volkswagen and Wells Fargo and how could such incident be avoided
  • How dangerous fear at work is
  • Nokia and their challenges being in a competitive environment
  • How to build psychological safety in the workplace
  • What makes up a really good question

Rank #20: Meet With Purpose: How to Make Pointless Meetings Productive

Podcast cover
Read more

We’ve all been there. It’s Monday morning, the to-do list is a mile long, the in-box is overflowing, and the last thing you want to do is attend the weekly team meeting that’s 90% pointless and 10% productive. What’s worse is you could have received the information in an email in a fraction of the time. 

Don’t get me wrong, connecting with your coworkers is important; however, meaningless meetings make that difficult and leave attendees more drained and annoyed than motivated. In this podcast, I interview Cameron Herold, author of Meetings Suck - Turning One of the Most Loathed Elements of Business Into One of the Most Valuable. Herold sheds light one why most meetings are pointless and gives me and my listeners helpful tips to make meetings more productive and more profitable.
