#41 – How To Receive Feedback & Deliver A Performance Review (Throwback)

It’s that time of year again. In my company, the end of the year performance reviews and compensation discussions start Monday.

So many trainings cover how to give performance reviews, but who covers how to receive them?

We do.

Here’s a throwback to episode #8, where we covered how to receive feedback, along with key tips to deliver an end of the year performance review.

#40 – Productivity Tips with Laurie Oswald, CEO of InteraWorks

The average employee…:

  • receives 200 or more pieces of information each day…or 25 per hour, which means 25 decisions per hour. 
  • spends 10% of their time getting organized.
  • wastes 150 hours a year just looking for things (7% of their time).
  • and has unnecessary interruptions consuming  28% of their day.

What if you could decrease interruptions, stay focused, and better prioritize and track commitments to get the right things done with more speed and efficiency?

Laurie Oswald and her team have discovered how, and she joined us on the podcast to share some of her favorite tips if e-mail is running your day and you want to be more productive.

Laurie is the CEO of the global learning company, InteraWorks (www.interaworks.com), and their purpose is to elevate the human experience at work for professionals and leaders all over the world.

Topics covered:

What is productivity and how to get it. “Productivity is not about getting more things done…you will never get it all done. Productivity is connecting your time to what matters most.”

Using the EDGE Model of Emptying, Deciding, Grouping, and Executing to improve effectiveness.

Introduction to some of the other tips and programs from Interaworks.

#38 – An Introverts Guide to Social Get-Togethers (w/ FREEBIE: 90 Questions to Get to Know Someone)

During the holidays, introverts like me need all the help we can get.  

I love people, but if I’m honest, the work cocktail hour, Christmas party or networking event are the physical manifestations of my nightmares.  

It was once so hard that I literally chose to eat alone in the bathroom stall with my porcelain buddy, “John” than eat lunch and talk with my high school classmates.

But over the last two decades, I’ve learned the secrets to not only get by in these social settings but also enjoy them.  

I value building authentic relationships with people I love and care about.

The problem for so many years was that I simply didn’t know how to do it, and didn’t intentionally manage my mind to set myself up for success.

In this week’s podcast, I cover the main tips to prepare before you go and share several questions to ask to get the conversation going.

Enter your name and e-mail below (at http://www.TheDailyArtOfLeading.com) to get the FREEBIE, “90 Questions to Get to Know Someone”.

Whether you manage employees, manage a household of children, or are trying to manage your own mind to get the results you want, great leaders know how to coach.

The second most impactful management discipline or manager must-do is to give feedback and coaching.

In Episode 16, we discussed how to give feedback, and now you’re ready to coach.

#33 – How to Get Up Early to Work Out – Let’s See Some BEARs

This podcast is taken from an 8-part series we filmed on the BEAR Model, to answer the call from our more visual leaders. Check out the entire series here.

Part 8 – How to lose weight, get up early to work out, or even make more money

If you have any items from one of your current or future BEAR models that you want us to run (one Belief from your thought download, an Emotion, Action or Result), contact us or schedule a free coaching session with a certified coach.

We can leave you completely anonymous, but still address the struggle you want to solve or result you want to reach.

#32 – How to Reprogram Your Brain (Using the examples, “I hate my job” and what to do when an employee wants to quit) – Let’s See Some BEARs

This podcast is taken from an 8-part series we filmed on the BEAR Model, to answer the call from our more visual leaders. Check out the entire series here.

Part 6 – What to do when you hate your job

Leadership is intentional influence. ⁣

But unless you understand the core of why humans do what we do, you won’t be able to influence. ⁣

The core, or the seeds that produce the fruits of how we feel, the actions we take, and results we get are the beliefs we choose to think in our mind. ⁣

Change how people think, and you’re on your way to influence, including how you lead yourself. ⁣

Leaders focus on 3 types of beliefs: ⁣

  1. ⁣Beliefs about yourself⁣
  2. Beliefs about others⁣
  3. Believes about what the past was, the present is, and future can be

See the current and future BEAR model for someone who thinks, “I HATE my job!”.  Starting at minute 8, we’ll use this example to learn how to reprogram your brain by:

1. Redirecting your brain: are you using the power of your reticular activating system (RAS) to make your dreams a reality?
2. Thinking new thoughts: create new beliefs by asking great questions or laddering up/bridging your thoughts.

For more details on how to ladder-up your thoughts, listen to episode #6

Part 7 (starts at 15:15) – The #1 reason why employees leave companies is NOT what YOU think…

Want to know the real reason employees leave?

And no, it’s not technically the manager. It’s not even the pay.

After thousands of real life exit interviews from my experience at a fortune 100 company with 130,000 employees, the real reason is NOT what YOU think, it’s what THEY are thinking in their own brain.

They leave because of their BELIEFS about their manager, or their BELIEFS about any aspect of the job that makes them feel an emotion they don’t like…so they want to leave to feel better, thinking that changing the circumstance is the best alternative.

See the current and future BEAR model for Sarah, a Senior Leader who wanted to quit, and how we helped her to not only feel better but also stay engaged.

If you have any items from one of your current or future BEAR models that you want us to run (one Belief from your thought download, an Emotion, Action or Result), contact us or schedule a free coaching session with a certified coach.

We can leave you completely anonymous, but still address the struggle you want to solve or result you want to reach.

#31 – What to Do When You’re Stressed Out or Procrastinating – Let’s See Some BEARs

What if you could dramatically lessen the stress in your life? 

How different would your life be if you didn’t feel overwhelmed or could stop procrastinating?

Part 1 – Could one model really help solve any struggle or reach any result – An Intro to The BEAR Model

Part 2 (9:40) – How to solve for the root cause problem and not the symptom.  

Part 3 (13:30) – How to C your BEAR and become aware of your unintentional current model

Part 4 (16:30 – 28:28) – What to do when you’re stressed out and overwhelmed.   Learn what causes stress and why so many of us over-eat, over-drink, over-work, or over-anything, and the root cause for why we procrastinate.

Once you know the root cause, you can learn how to finally feel better.  

This podcast is taken from an 8-part series we filmed on the BEAR Model, to answer the call from our more visual leaders. Check out the entire series here.

If you have any items from one of your current or future BEAR models that you want us to run (one Belief from your thought download, an Emotion, Action or Result), contact us or schedule a free coaching session with a certified coach.

We can leave you completely anonymous, but still address the struggle you want to solve or result you want to reach.

#30 – How to Stop Yelling At Your Kids – Let’s See Some BEARs

After a long day, with your patience juice all used up, have you ever come home and lost your temper on those you love most?

I have.

What if you could stop yelling at your kids?

You can. I mean, really, it’s possible.

Let us show you how.

This is the first of many “Let’s See Some BEARs” podcasts where we take a specific topic and run BEAR models on it.

PS: Towards the end, I share a time when I didn’t show up as the deliberate dad I wanted to be, and what Brittany said that completely changed how I parent ever since.

If you have any items from one of your current or future BEAR models that you want us to run (one Belief from your thought download, an Emotion, Action or Result), contact us or schedule a free coaching session with a certified coach.

We can leave you completely anonymous, but still address the struggle you want to solve or result you want to reach.



#29 – Using MBTI in Teams to Improve How You Make Decisions

We go deeper into a whole new level of self-awareness as we learn about the Four Mental Functions

Everyone “has” and uses all four functions (Sensing, iNtuition, Thinking and Feeling)

Type dynamics = the order in which each type accesses and uses the four functions.

Click here to order your personalized report that shows the type dynamics for your type.

  1. Dominant function (favorite/driver/most used/if a superhero – it’s Batman)
  2. Auxiliary function (balances dominant function/if a superhero – it’s the sidekick – the Robin)
  3. Tertiary function (not in your type code/not used much/if like a person’s development in age – it’s the teenage years)
  4. Inferior function (least favorite or developed/like a person – it’s the infant years)

See how these 4 functions impact how you make decisions. This is one the most important insights from understanding your MBTI.

In any decision-making situation, we are likely to put most of our energy into – spend most of our time – using our dominant function.

Table below shows the amount of time during a 60 minute meeting that you would spend in each function. You’d spend half the time or 30 minutes in your dominant function and 5 minutes (or 0 if you ran out of time) in you inferior function.

In Episode #27 you learned your MBTI preference, now see how to use those insights to better lead and work with others.

Having trouble deciding between the type dichotomies…not sure if you have a preference toward Extroversion and Introversion or Thinking vs. Feeling, then the first 5 minutes gives you several examples to help clarify.

Lastly, get tips for how to better work with someone in the opposite personality type preference. For example, if you have a preference toward Extroversion, see what the Introverts in your life would want you to know, and how you can flex your natural preference to better work with them.

#27 – Discover Your MBTI Personality Type in Under 25 Minutes For FREE

Have you ever been asked if you’re an ESTJ or INFP and thought, “I have no idea what you’re talking about?”

After the next 25 minutes, you’ll be able to not only know what MBTI is, but also have an accurate self-assessment of your own 4-letter personality type…all for FREE.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® or MBTI® is a thoroughly researched training and development tool used by most Fortune 500 companies. 

If you want additional and personalized insights into your MBTI preferences, click here to purchase your individualized report. 

MBTI suggests that we have opposing ways or preferences of gaining energy (Extraversion or Introversion), gathering or becoming aware of information (Sensing or INtuition), deciding on or coming to a conclusion about that information (Thinking or Feeling), and dealing with the world around us (Judging or Perceiving). 

It describes our personality preferences and not our skills or abilities, thus there is no right or wrong answers – no better or worse types.

Put it together, and the four-letter type is a “code” – the key to understanding your dynamic personality pattern, (e.g. ESTJ, INFP, or ENFJ, etc.).  There are 16 personality types or 16 different ways of being normal.

While going through this episode, answer what you prefer while removing any expectations or demands you might face from work, family, or friends.  In other words, think about what your preferences are without any consequences. 

You can also continue with episodes #28, #29 and #30 for even more MBTI knowledge bombs.

#26 – Conducting A New Leader Assimilation (New Manager Quick Start Tool 6 of 9 w/ FREEBIE)

As part of the New Manager Quick Start, the NLA should be mandatory for every newly appointed leader in your organization because it is so powerful. You won’t regret doing it!

What is a New Leader Assimilation or NLA?

When a new leader starts, the team (s)he inherits is going through a change.

The NLA is a meeting with the new leader, an impartial facilitator (HR, OD or consultant), and team members.

Instead of team members having concerns or questions unanswered in their mind, this meeting gives them a chance to voice them, but in a safe setting, while getting to know the new leader and each other

The goal is to improve effectiveness and decrease cycle time for the new leader and team to “get up to speed” by getting acquainted with the new leader’s background, style and operating preferences

The new leader can gain insight into team members’ concerns about the organization and/or the leader

We’ll discuss how to prepare for it and what to cover during the session.

The Myers Brigs Type Indicator or MBTI can also be used with the NLA or as a separate team meeting, so we’ll briefly cover that and then go into more detail over the next several podcasts. Click here to order your MBTI report

#23 – Create “My Style: A Guide to Working with Me” (New Manager Quick Start Tool 3 of 9 w/ FREEBIE)

You know the drill, you get assigned to a new project or a new team and immediately begin to work withother people.

Soon, you find that one team member can’t stop talking while another is silent.

During a presentation, one only wants to hear what’s proven to have worked in the past, while anotherkeeps brainstorming what could be in the future.

When working the project plan, one wants to start early and have the detailed plan broken down by step#89.3 by July 5th at 2pm and another wants to wait to plan as they do their best work right before the deadline.

Based on their actions, you then tell yourself stories for what it means when they only respond to your long e-mail with an emoji, or why they seem to enjoy asking a million questions and critiquing your proposals.

How much time do you waste, and stress or frustration do you feel by waiting to understand how to best work with them?

I recently had an insight when I bought a new appliance. With my new purchase, I got a user’s manuals to learn how to work with it. If I thought this gadget was complicated, how much more are people!

Then it hit me…what if I had a user’s manual or a guide that gave me immediate insights into the people I work with?

Instead of spending weeks or months figuring out what motivates them, their communication style, or how they make decisions, what if we had the conversation up-front?

As we continue the New Manager Quick Start podcast series, episode #23 covers how to create a user’s guide to help others who are beginning to work with you.

You can share it to spark a conversation about how you like to work and more importantly, to ask about their preferences and style. Save time and stress later by having the conversation now.

#18 – Emotional Puberty (Moving from Emotional Childhood To Emotional Adulthood)

It’s time we have the talk…you know, the one before you start going through emotional puberty. If you haven’t had “the talk” yet, you’re in for a ride.

Emotional childhood is when we are emotionally acting like a child.  It shows up when we don’t take responsibility for how we feel, or when we blame others for how we feel.

Emotional adulthood, on the other hand, is all about taking full responsibility.  We take responsibility for our own emotions – happiness, sadness… 

Don’t worry, I was a late bloomer physically and also in learning about this emotionally, so you’re in good company if you haven’t heard about this before.

But that’s no excuse to not listen to it now. It’s time for all of us to become emotional adults.
