Helping a Remote Workforce Connect and Thrive with Guest Mark Morey

 

In this episode of Training Unleashed, Evan speaks with Mark Morey, executive coach, culture developer and founder of A Connected Leader about creating a sense of belonging and strong culture with a remote workforce. A timely and important topic to discuss as the pandemic continues, and employees continue to be isolated from the workforce.

Mark noted that there have been so many changes in the past year and that people are suffering from a variety of crises, including working from home, home schooling or online schooling, people are losing their jobs.

“We’re also in the middle of a mental health crisis and we’re not talking about it.” People are being removed from their social circles, their community. Children are more isolated. And, employees are more isolated from their workforce.

Evan asked for Mark’s opinion on how you create a sense of belonging and strong culture with a remote workforce? Mark answered, “I’m not sure belonging existed in the workforce before the pandemic.” Mark noted that it might look like belonging is being facilitated, but the true aspects of what human beings need to connect and thrive was not present.

During the interview, Evan and Mark discussed this and other very interesting topics, and Mark shared some great tips with listeners, including how managers can

  • connect more deeply
  • be a good, deeper listener
  • stay awake with their employees
  • create a level playing field
  • and, be deliberate

Even with all of the great tips Mark shared during the interview, remember to stay to the end to hear his BIG tip.

Creating an AND culture with Chris Fuller

 

In this episode of Training Unleashed, Evan speaks with Chris Fuller, president and CEO of Influence Leadership, Inc. and RightPath Resources, and self-proclaimed experiential, adventure-seeking guy. Chris says that adventure opens his eyes to illustrations he can speak to and he uses real-life adventure metaphors when he’s working with clients because they carry through into business. And, don’t worry, they do talk about Chris’ unique approach to leadership in the interview.

Chris believes that leadership isn’t an “or,” that it’s about building an “and” culture.

Chris explained that, “it’s about being intentional and executing with excellence. About being service oriented AND passionate in your pursuit of what you’re doing. And, so I think without the skillset and the baseline of managerial excellence, of operation excellence, [that] leadership is just a pipedream that will discourage and diminish your organizational hope.

“Leadership is that icing on the cake, if you will.” Chris continues, “Leadership is engagement. Leadership is vision and strategy. There are a lot of components that would go into the leadership competency. But, again, without the fundamentals of the management aspects… you know, we need both ends of the spectrum. We need Tony Robbins and Peter Drucker. So how do we have an ‘and’ not an ‘or.’ “

Chris shares some of his stories about dog sledding in the Iditarod and being at Mt. Everest Base Camp to see the top of the world. Chris said that adventure opens his eyes to illustrations that he can speak to. So that when he goes into a business he’s not teaching to something that he’s read in a book, he’s teaching with real-life adventure metaphors that carry through into business.

Make sure you listen to the entire episode to get into the meat of Chris’ ideas on leadership and his new book InSPIRED Leadership, and (of course) to hear his BIG tip.

Creating Trust in the Workplace with John Saunders

 

In this episode of Training Unleashed, Evan has an interesting conversation with John Saunders, founder of Forward Advisory Solutions, about creating trust in the workplace. John notes that trust is required to help co-workers and employees unleash their talents and enable change and innovation.

At the beginning of the interview John spoke briefly about his new book, The Optimizer: Building and Leading a Team of Serial Innovators, and noted that what stops people from unleashing their gifts is fear – emotional fear – and the need to create a trusting environment to enable people to unleash those gifts and deliver results.

Evan asked John, how do you create that trust that’s required for change?

John started with an interesting story that people tend to think the bias toward change is a recent phenomenon. In writing his book, he dug very deep to find a case in 1636 where a gentleman by the name of Henry Burton was jailed for being deemed an innovator by the King of England. John said, “this happened 400 years ago. A guy was jailed for creating change!”

He went on to explain that, “when you think about building trust there’s a number of levels to it. And certainly, first is creating a personal connection with your team members. The thing I can’t stress here enough is this is not a one-time event, right. People send a note to their team member, a note saying, ‘hey, I hope you had a great weekend…or wasn’t that a fun event.’ That’s one touch, right? You build from there. It has to become part of your process.”

John continued, “It’s getting their feedback. How many times in your career has someone come to you and said, ‘hey Evan you work for me, or you’ve been on my team for a number of years, what’s it like working for me? How can I improve this circumstance?’ More than 10? More than 1? It’s not a common occurrence.

John has a very powerful story that he shares in his interview to illustrate this point. Make sure you listen to the interview to hear it and remember to listen until the end to hear John’s BIG idea!
