Think you can lead without a vision? Think again. Leadership is about going somewhere. How do you know where you're going without a clear vision?

I recommend creating an environment where people feel safe to speak their minds as a strategy for dealing with "yes men" at work. How have you dealt with colleagues who never say no - regardless of whether or not they agree? http://cdblog.centraldesktop.com/2015/02/how-to-work-with-yes-men/ #CareerAdvice   #WorkplaceIssues   #Leadership  
The yes-man is the collabohater you don't see coming until the maddening lack of insight, input, or personality has you grinding teeth and snapping pencils.

Managers, in order to maintain connection during times of change, it may be necessary to take a more hands-on approach to support your team. Great thoughts from +Stephen Roesler: http://www.allthingsworkplace.com/2014/12/what_style_do_y.html #Leadership   #ChangeManagement   #Connection

As a manager, have you ever wondered what your team says about you when you aren't there? Some great advice on how to effectively solicit feedback so you can become a better leader: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-theyre-saying-when-youre-sumir-meghani?trk=hp-feed-article-title #Leadership   #ManagementAdvice  
It's 5pm on a Friday and you're leaving the office. As you walk out the door thinking ahead to your big plans for the weekend, you notice several members of your team sitting outside enjoying the happy hour at a nearby bar. They see you and smile and wave; you wave back and continue walking. You ponder what they could be talking about and realize the answer is almost certainly you.Perhaps they are discussing a team meeting from that week where yo...

"When a leader makes the choice to put the safety and lives of the people inside the organization first, to sacrifice their comforts and sacrifice the tangible results, so that the people remain and feel safe and feel like they belong, remarkable things happen." http://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_why_good_leaders_make_you_feel_safe?language=en #Leadership   #Connection   #ConnectionCulture  
What makes a great leader? Management theorist Simon Sinek suggests, it’s someone who makes their employees feel secure, who draws staffers into a circle of trust. But creating trust and safety — especially in an uneven economy — means taking on big responsibility.

Read this post, which was adapted from my upcoming book, to learn practical steps for identifying and establishing core values: http://www.michaelleestallard.com/how-leaders-can-identify-and-establish-core-values-that-connect #ConnectionCulture   #Leadership   #Culture   #CoreValues  
If you asked your employees what the organization’s core values are, could they tell you? Most cannot. This is a problem for leaders since it is impossible to create a healthy corporate culture, which I refer to as a “Connection Culture,” if employees can’t articulate what the organization stands for. Furthermore, the organization’s values should […]

Great leaders know how to provide feedback in a way that is constructive and doesn't damage the relationship. Here's how they do it: http://www.michaelleestallard.com/provide-constructive-feedback #Leadership   #ConnectionCulture   #Communication  
#77 Provide Constructive Feedback When providing feedback to help someone improve, we recommend the following: always communicate it in private, be respectful in your tone of voice and volume, and begin with three positive things you like about his/her work.  After sharing the three positives, say “I believe you would be even better if… [insert […]

This week's "100 Ways to Connect" tip is all about ending the dreaded NETMA (nobody ever tells me anything) complaint: http://www.michaelleestallard.com/connect-with-your-team-by-keeping-them-in-the-loop #Communication   #TeamCommunication   #ConnectionCulture   #Leadership   #ManagementAdvice  
#76 Keep Them “In the Loop” Keep your team in the loop on issues they need to know about. Whenever possible, bring individuals into the loop who express an interest in an issue. Doing so helps people to feel prepared for what’s ahead, which reduces stress and increases engagement. This is the seventy-sixth post in […]

How do you handle an "intentional disconnector" - someone who cares only about himself? Read my advice in this week's "100 Ways to Connect" tip: http://www.michaelleestallard.com/to-handle-intentional-disconnectors-wish-them-well #ConnectionCulture   #CareerAdvice   #DifficultCoworkers  
#75 Wish Them Well Over your career you will run into intentional disconnectors. They care only about themselves. Psychologists call them the “dark triad” and they are also known as psychopaths, narcissists and Machiavellians. They have little empathy for others. They can make you furious if you let them. It’s best to avoid them and […]
