Redefining Feedback
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We are not built the same when it comes to receiving feedback in the workplace. What might seem as open and direct to one person can seem completely harsh and really sharp to another.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Feedback can sometimes break or make someone. How you deliver it matters greatly. When done in the right way it can be the most effective means of communication and performance for you and your organization.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Join me today as we redefine what feedback is with M.

Building a Culture of Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Diversity is the future. When an organization has a diversified workforce, this meant better productivity, creativity, and stronger company reputation. It puts the company in a competitive edge that can lead to greater reach in the future.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This is why many are seeking to employ people from different backgrounds.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Regardless of a company's good intentions, diversity efforts still falter if the ones with privilege won't allow others equal access to power.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">How can we break this norm and shift others into building a sustainable culture of inclusion? How can we establish a commitment and match our intents with our impact?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In today’s episode, La’Wana Harris, the author of Diversity Beyond Lip-Service joins us to talk about her book and the topic of diversity and inclusions.

Basecamp CTO and co-founder on Why it’s so crazy at work
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You don’t even have time to sleep because of your packed schedules and endless meeting. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s just crazy!!!</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But hey, work doesn’t have to be crazy. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">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! </span></p> <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Grab your copy now!

Being Okay with Being Uncomfortable
<p> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I’ve never been happier than I am ever since I embraced change.”</span></em> <em><span style="font-weight: 400;">⁠— John Johnson</span></em></p> <p>Many of us prefer the easy path. We find comfort in things that we already understand. When things change too quickly, we tend to go back to the way things were. Change doesn't always feel good. It makes us uncomfortable, but it's essential because the world around us is ever-changing.</p> <p>Our fear of trying something new from what we're used to prevents us from growing and reaching our full potential. You can't always stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to reach you. You have to go out and take the initiative sometimes.</p> <p>But how do you get comfortable with change? How do you get okay with being uncomfortable?</p> <p>Here's the thing, we'll never feel comfortable at all times. That's why we need to push our boundaries a little bit. John Johnson, an Employee Benefits Consultant at USI, is here to help you shift yourself into that discomfort zone.</p> <p>Today's episode focuses on helping you help yourself be more comfortable with being uncomfortable.</p> <p><strong>In this episode, you will learn about:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Why encourage people to be comfortable with being uncomfortable</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">John Johnson’s personal journey with being uncomfortable</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Taking a break and being mindful</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Looking for things that challenge you</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">How we become the average of who we hang around</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">One of the best gifts you can give someone </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Asking for permission when you’re afraid and uncertain</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Things you can do to make someone feel comfortable when they’re uncomfortable</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">What drew John to the topic of being okay with being uncomfortable and why it matters</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Practices that makes John feel confident</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">How John gets people to embrace change</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The first step in talking with people</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Why your words and approach matters a lot</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">Getting comfortable with conflict</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">John’s role at USI</span></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Connect with John:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;"><a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnjohnson-usi"><span style= "font-weight: 400;">LinkedIn</span></a></li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/events/on-demand/"><strong>Enroll in Xenium's e-Learning Courses</strong></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Connect with Us:</strong></p> <p>What did you think of this episode?

How to Support Working Parents
<p>According to the Department of Labor, 70% of mothers with children under the age of 18 participated in the workforce in 2018. In 1975, that number was just 47%. With more mothers in the workplace today, there are more and more families in which both parents are employed. As a result, many of today’s parents struggle to accomplish those household tasks that would have been completed during the day decades ago by a stay-at-home parent.

Amy Edmondson on Creating Better Organizations by Building Psychological Safety in the Workplace
<p><em>“Psychological safety is a belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes.” ⁠— Amy Edmondson</em> </p> <p>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? </p> <p>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. </p> <p>Sadly, innovations are delayed, and great ideas don’t come to light every time this happens. </p> <p>In this episode, Amy Edmondson will be joining me to discuss her book, <em>The Fearless Organization: Creating psychological safety in the workplace for learning, innovation, and growth</em>. 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. </p> <p><strong><em>Giveaway!</em></strong> <em>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 <strong>#fearlessorganization</strong> and tags <strong>@worktransformed @AmyCEdmondson</strong> <strong>@brandonlaws</strong></em><em> </em></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Example Tweet: </strong></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><em>I loved the @worktransformed podcast with @AmyCEdmondson and host @brandonlaws discussing the #fearlessorganization.

Meet With Purpose: How to Make Pointless Meetings Productive
<p>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. </p> <p>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 <em>Meetings Suck - Turning One of the Most Loathed Elements of Business Into One of the Most Valuable</em>. 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.</p> <p><strong>How to Support this Show:</strong></p> <ol> <li>Subscribe on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, etc.)</li> <li><a href= "http://mktg.xeniumhr.com/acton/attachment/7928/u-0021/0/-/-/-/-/">Review us on iTunes</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XeniumPodcast">Take our survey</a> and we'll enter you in a drawing for a free book</li> <li>Follow Xenium HR (<a href= "https://twitter.com/XeniumHR">@XeniumHR</a>) and Brandon Laws (<a href="https://twitter.com/BrandonLaws">@BrandonLaws</a>) on Twitter and <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/lawsbrandon/">LinkedIn</a></li> <li>Learn more about Xenium HR at <a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/">xeniumhr.com</a></li> </ol>

How to Prepare a Rising Star for Leadership
<p>It’s a common mistake to promote star employees into leadership roles before they’re ready, or before they fully understand their new responsibilities. Both you and the employee in question can end up feeling dissatisfied if you move too quickly. Becoming a manager is a big step, and it takes any employee time to adjust to the additional expectations.</p> <p>In this episode, Suzi Alligood, VP of People Development & Culture at Xenium, shares what Xenium learned recently by going through this exact scenario. We’ll discuss the steps employers can take to ensure they have a proper leadership development plan in place. We’ll also identify the skills needed to move into leadership and how to develop them before that transition into management takes place.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>How to Support this Show:</strong></p> <ol> <li>Subscribe on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, etc.)</li> <li><a href= "http://mktg.xeniumhr.com/acton/attachment/7928/u-0021/0/-/-/-/-/">Review us on iTunes</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XeniumPodcast">Take our survey</a> and we'll enter you in a drawing for a free book</li> <li>Follow Xenium HR (<a href= "https://twitter.com/XeniumHR">@XeniumHR</a>) and Brandon Laws (<a href="https://twitter.com/BrandonLaws">@BrandonLaws</a>) on Twitter, <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/lawsbrandon/">LinkedIn</a> & <a href="https://www.instagram.com/lawsbrandon/">Instagram</a></li> <li>Learn more about Xenium HR at <a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/">xeniumhr.com</a></li> </ol> <p> <strong>About the Guest: </strong></p> <div> <ul> <li>Connect with <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/suzi-alligood-37b8ab3/">Suzi Alligood</a></li> </ul> </div> <p> </p> <p> <strong>SPECIAL OFFERS:</strong> </p> <ul> <li>e-learning courses at Xenium -<a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/courses">www.xeniumhr.com/courses</a> - promo code "POD" for 10% off all courses.</li> </ul>

3 of the Best Ways to Prevent Harassment in the Workplace
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’ve all been reading the headlines. There’s never been a more important time to talk about harassment & discrimination in the workplace. Suzi Alligood, VP of People Development and Culture at Xenium, joins us to take the topic head-on. We’ll cover the changes she’s seen in the workplace and what employers and employees have to say about it.

HR Trends to Watch for in 2018
<p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>How to Support this Show:</strong></p> <ol> <li>Subscribe on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, etc.)</li> <li><a href= "http://mktg.xeniumhr.com/acton/attachment/7928/u-0021/0/-/-/-/-/">Review us on iTunes</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XeniumPodcast">Take our survey</a> and we'll enter you in a drawing for a free book</li> <li>Follow Xenium HR (<a href= "https://twitter.com/XeniumHR">@XeniumHR</a>) and Brandon Laws (<a href="https://twitter.com/BrandonLaws">@BrandonLaws</a>) on Twitter and <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/lawsbrandon/">LinkedIn</a></li> <li>Learn more about Xenium HR at <a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/">xeniumhr.com</a></li> </ol> <p> <strong>About the Guest: </strong></p> <div> <ul> <li>Connect with <a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/perkinsangela/">Angela Perkins</a></li> </ul> </div> <p> </p> <p> <strong>SPECIAL OFFERS:</strong> </p> <ul> <li>e-learning courses at Xenium -<a href= "http://www.xeniumhr.com/courses">www.xeniumhr.com/courses</a> - promo code "POD" for 10% off all courses.</li> </ul>

As the Director of Landscape Services at the University of Mississippi, he grows plants…he grows people…he grows ideas. Jeff is a problem-solver, understanding that doing more with less is a 21st century mandate. Faced with a multi-million dollar landscaping beautification project, a demand for excellence, high productivity, and with a stagnant budget, Jeff knew that growing the people was critical to growing the plants. Understanding that all humans either have or strive for the innate elements of Greatness,  Resiliency, Opportunity and Wisdom, Jeff developed his GROW-theory into an impactful management and professional development leadership program for his staff.</p> <p><br /> Taking his grounds employees, affectionately known as “weeders”,<br /> and developing them into “leaders” has been a joyous challenge that reaped acres of rewards in the form of national recognition by the Princeton Review, PGMS, Newsweek and every faculty, staff, student and visitor who has walked onto the Ole Miss Campus. Building on that momentum, Jeff has designed a professional development plan for his Weeders called Landscape University. His message rings true for any industry leader or manager looking to grow a high-performance and dedicated workforce.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Connect with Jeff:</strong></p> <p><a href= "http://twitter.com/JeffMcManus">http://twitter.com/JeffMcManus</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-mcmanus-073b108">https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-mcmanus-073b108</a> </p> <p> </p>
