Episode #5: How To Deliver Results Through Your Direct Reports (5/26/2020)

In today’s episode you will learn how to add value to your Direct Reports by understanding what each one of them needs from you.
I invite you to become a manager-coach. It’s one of the key choices you can make, whether you have recently moved from an Individual Contributor role to a corporate manager, or if you’ve been a manager for a few years. Seek to understand what your Direct Reports want from you, commit to helping them in those areas, and make this part of your day-to-day interaction with them.

Episode #4: How To Deliver Results Through Your Boss (5/19/2020)

In today’s episode you will learn two resourceful tips you can use to deliver results through your boss, a crucially important audience.
Seek to constantly clarify and update what your boss expects from you. Never assume that the performance objectives you received at the beginning of the year will remain fixed throughout the following twelve months. Things change, priorities get reshuffled and you don’t want to be putting your energy behind what you think is of value if you haven’t regularly validated with your boss what he or she thinks is of value.

Episode #3: How To Deliver Results Through Your Peers (5/8/2020)

Is it hard for you to trust some of your peers, especially those with whom you often interact at work?
Throughout the close to four decades that I’ve been working in the corporate world, first as a manager and now as an executive coach, I continue to see a huge opportunity for people from different teams to learn how to achieve results through others.
The few managers who learn to work with and through colleagues from other areas tend to be the ones who achieve better results and accelerate their career growth.

Episode #2: How Can You Embrace A Mindset Of Service? (5/7/2020)

In our last episode, you learned about the importance of letting go of the mindset of an individual contributor, where you had to rely mostly on yourself to deliver your goals.
I invited you to instead achieve results through others by adopting a mindset of service.
But what happens if the service mindset doesn’t come naturally to you? Can you learn to adopt it? The good news is yes, you can learn this approach. The not-so-good news is that choosing to adopt a service mindset is not a decision you can make lightly.
