This video recording of a recent interview with Host Julian Roberts
Helping Organizations Thrive Podcast
Reshaping the way work is done.
We cover a lot of ground in this interview. Slated for just 20 minutes, host Julian Roberts decided to just keep going. We spent a good bit of time on vision and the need to extend the typical, stale vision statement into a story.
People learn and are motivated by the stores that they are told. You must be able to share your organization’s story with all of its stakeholders. It must describe in vivid detail what you aspire to become and how you intend to get there. It must compel your staff to make the changes needed to achieve it.
Being The Example That Gains “Followership”
Leadership is another major theme in this conversation. It is key to helping organizations thrive. Key points are:
- Be Honest
- Talk Straight
- Be Real
- Be Decisive
- Be In It
“Your people are watching your feet…It doesn’t matter what you say. What matters is what you do”
Please be sure to mke some time to watch (or just listen in). It was a fun and, I hope, informative discussion.
By the way, these topics are covered in greater detail in my latest book:
