Podcast EP. 20 | How to Be Authentic While Growing Your Business

For some, the office is an environment that is strictly professional and should include no moments of socialization or “slacking off.” In these cases, business leaders tend to be more rigid and stick to the book definition of professional. But did you know that being authentic, and even vulnerable, in the workplace has its benefits?

 

todd dewett authenic

Leadership expert Dr. Todd Dewett recently sat down with us to discuss everything from authenticity to leadership and bridging the generational gap. Hear what he had to say on our Eagles Talent Podcast.

 

 


“You have to take a toe-in-the-water approach to understanding how safe it is to be a little more open and unfiltered at work.”  

authentic businss growthMany people see the office as place that’s unsafe for opening up and being personal. Some people, on the other hand, see lots of room to try and be more human in the workplace.

 

When you take a toe-in-the-water approach and start being authentic little by little, others will reciprocate. The goal here is to be more than just a professional and be more human. In this case, being more authentic can really pay off since the reward is worth more than the risk.


“Think about managing work outcomes, not process.”

Professionalism has changed not only through the years, but also through generations. Today, we have Baby Boomers and Millennials working under the same roof. This generational diversity can often lead to bumping heads and disagreements.

 

grow your business

Older generations in leadership positions may find it difficult to understand different values that younger generations possess. Dr. Dewett encourages these leaders to manage outcomes, not process.

 

Some leaders tend to manage everything from how an employee looks to the process in which they get their work done. Dr. Dewett argues, however, that if employees are gaining desirable outcomes and getting things done, there’s no need to interfere with their process. Doing so can stifle their growth and decrease productivity.


“On a micro level, leaders who embrace authenticity tend to be beloved more and inspire not just compliance, but commitment.”

todd dewett authentic speakerEmployees often find trust in a leader who is more vulnerable and  shares their experiences and mistakes with them. After all, the more pro-employee you are, the better you tend to perform over time.

 

On a macro level, companies benefit financially when they truly understand how people work. When business leaders are authentic, they will attract top performers who want to work for them. In addition, these companies will not necessarily have to pay market-leading wages because their employees enjoy working there and will likely stay on board for longer than an unhappy employee.

Mental health is a complex topic that needs to be discussed and understood, yet many people avoid the conversation altogether. When it comes to your mental well-being, we must begin by opening a dialogue and holding an informative discussion — and what better time to do that than Mental Health Awareness Month?

5 Powerful Ways This Nonprofit is Empowering Women

In San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala, over 60 percent of families live on less than $2 per day — the measure of extreme poverty. The village also faces high rates of malnutrition, especially among children. Known for her world travels and social impact projects, social entrepreneur Mallory Brown recently found herself in Guatemala. Here, she met a group of women who work on on eradicating malnutrition and empowering women in their village.

 

As part of her Walk A Mile initiative, Mallory is walking a 26-mile marathon around the world. For her third mile, Mallory partnered with Konojel, an organization that serves to empower women while reducing malnutrition and poverty. Here’s the latest on mile three out of 26 in which Mallory walked with Laura in Guatemala.

 

 

Konojel is actively empowering women.

In Guatemala, women face widespread discrimination along with a lack of opportunities. Oftentimes, they are told they cannot complete a certain task or job simply because they are women. As a result, many women are confined to the home and do not have the opportunity to work in many fields.

 

women empowerment

Konojel employs women in areas such as cooking, management, and business, ensuring that they develop essential skills necessary for any job. Not only does Konojel provide them with employment, but the organization also encourages women to run their own micro-businesses. Subsequently, Konojel supports their businesses by selling their products, including handmade bags, aprons, and sweets.

 

Konojel’s mission is to reduce chronic malnutrition and endemic poverty.

empower

The women who work at Konojel are not only working toward their own empowerment, but they are also giving back to their community in tremendous ways.

 

According to Konojel’s website, seven out of ten children in Guatemala’s indigenous communities suffer from malnutrition.

 

Konojel offers a daily lunch program and nutrition workshops, which educate children and families on healthy eating habits. It also provides them with the nutrients they need to live a healthy life and combat malnutrition.

 

Women are able to serve in leadership roles and manage their own micro-businesses.

Laura, a program manager at Konojel, says she is always fighting to give women more opportunities in Guatemala. Through her job, Laura hopes to teach and empower women so they can work in productive jobs while giving back to their community.

 

The organization empowers women to branch out and create their own micro-businesses. With knowledge on how to create and sell a product, these women are then able to sell their own products at Konojel.

 

Konojel aims to leave a positive impact on the community while empowering women.

Through daily lunch services and a women’s entrepreneurship program, Konojel’s mission is to create a positive impact all around. They serve to empower women and families by providing nourishment, employment, and education.

How to Avoid New Employee Turnover

Our ongoing research at RainmakerThinking reveals the five most common causes of new employee turnover. Use the following list as a guideline for avoiding high employee turnover rates.

 

employee turnover

1. Overselling the job

This is the number one cause of voluntary departures within the first twelve months.  Too often hiring managers continue the “attraction campaign” with job candidates until they have accepted the job, and sometimes until the new employee is already at work. In an effort to sell, sell, sell the job to the candidate, sometimes companies make promises they cannot keep. Or, at the least, they present the job as something it is not, obscuring the downsides while overemphasizing the upsides.

 

The only way to avoid overselling candidates is to be honest and up front about the realities of the job, as early in the process as possible. It may seem counterintuitive, but it is usually more helpful to try scaring candidates away than to lure them into a position. You can be confident that whatever candidates remain interested, even after you’ve made the job’s downsides crystal clear, will be much better aligned to the needs of the position and your organization.

 

2. Overlooking red flags in the selection process

The number two cause of new employee turnover leads to early voluntary and involuntary departures. When hiring managers are so eager to fill an open position that they overlook obvious concerns that arise in the selection process, they set up new employees for failure.  Perhaps a job candidate is looking for work conditions or rewards that are unrealistic.  Or perhaps the job candidate shows up late to the interview or keeps checking his/her handheld device, or there are misspellings in the resume.

 

Be rigorous in selection and do not overlook those red flags.

 

3. Insufficient onboarding

The number three cause of early voluntary departures is failing to provide a thorough and effective onboarding and up-to-speed training for new employees.  When it comes to managing new hires, there is a simple rule:day one is the most important day, day two is second most important, and so on.

 

Make sure your onboarding process provides meaningful and engaging schedule combining formal orientation and training, a series of well-planned one-on-one meetings with every individual with whom the new employee will be working (most important the new hire’s new manager), observational attendance at key meetings with proper debriefs, extensive work product reviews with debriefs, and other structured activities. The goal is to establish real connections between the new hire and the organization, it’s vision and mission, the team, key individuals, and the work.

 

4. Handing off a new employee to a hands-off manager

This is the number four cause of early employee turnover.  Imagine the whiplash experienced by new hires who are enthusiastically recruited with an intensive hiring and onboarding process, only to be deposited into a low-structure, low-support workplace?  Whatever investments you make in hiring and onboarding will be squandered if new employees are welcomed then (more or less) by weak disengaged managers.

Once you’ve invested in attracting, selecting, and onboarding a new employee, it is critical to hand that new employee off to an immediate manager who will provide regular guidance and support.

 

5. New employees conclude that their immediate manager doesn’t have enough to offer in terms of ongoing career development

This is the number five cause of departures within the first twelve months, but the number one cause of voluntary departures within 12 to 36 months.

 

Most people today want strong, highly-engaged managers who can help them achieve their career goals. This is especially true of the most ambitious and motivated high-performers – they are looking for leaders who can help them gain the skills, knowledge, projects, and connections that will get them to the next level.

 

It doesn’t take long for new employees to determine whether a manager is either willing or able to provide the kind of guidance and support they need in order to succeed. Once they’ve come to the conclusion that a manager is NOT, it is usually too late. That great new employee is almost certainly looking for a new and better opportunity somewhere else and checked out of doing their job for you at the same time.

 

If a manager describes a new employee as “pushy” or “aggressive,” you may want to dig deeper. It could be that the employee is simply trying to get more from their manager and growing increasingly frustrated when they aren’t able to get what they need. The leaders and managers in your organization must be prepared to provide guidance, direction, and support. They must also be in a position to advocate for their direct reports when it comes to obtaining resources, assigning tasks, and building connections either outside or inside the organization.

4 Seeds For Success You Need To Plant This Spring

Spring has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. And while my friends in Canada or the US Upper Midwest won’t be planting anything for several weeks, the rest of us are watching trees bud, flowers bloom…. and pollen build up on everything. I think the late Robin Williams summed it up best: “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!'”

 

seeds for success

 

Our schedules are “blooming” too aren’t they? Work is wide open, expectations of our time from family and friends are increasing, and there’s all those projects you want to get done now that winter is becoming a distant memory. How will you get so many things done? As you celebrate the beauty of spring and begin to reflect on what you want to grow this season, I also invite you to think about planting these four “seeds” for success in your daily schedule to ensure that your most important things can get done:

 

 

Protect Your “Prime Time”

 

It’s easy to allow interruptions, meetings, and distractions to steal those moments when you could be most productive. You keep thinking there will be time to make up for it in the future… and there never is. To help keep yourself in the “productivity zone” more often, ask yourself these questions when you’re tempted to let something (or someone) steal your minutes:

 

  • Saying yes to this interruption means I will be saying no to _______________ .
  • Am I attending this meeting because I need to, or because I have been unwilling to have a conversation with someone about how my time could be better spent… or how we could improve the effectiveness of such meetings?
  • What action should I take now that I will look back on tonight and be glad I did?

 

 

Automate Automate Automate

 

One line in a recent Seth Godin blog perfectly captured the need to develop more consistent habits and routines. Godin wrote, “…because without habits, every decision requires attention. And attention is exhausting.” From your morning routine to how you manage your email to dealing with that dreaded, “Have you got a minute?” question, coming up with routines you can do without letting your brain get so emotionally or mentally involved frees up energy you can use to be more creative, focused, and even more present in every moment in your day.

 

 

Get Serious About Professional or Personal Improvement

 

I enjoy eavesdropping on people shopping for plants in a garden center in the spring. I almost always hear someone say, “I’ve always wanted to grow ____________ (insert name of flower or plant) but just never tried it.” In the same way, reflect on some ways you’ve wanted to grow over the past year but let your daily overload crowd it out of your schedule.

 

 

Create Consistent Space to Think Forward

 

It’s a funny thing about seeds. You can’t just put them in the ground and come back later expecting them to have grown into the perfect plant. You have to monitor their growth, providing resources as needed, and make sure the weeds aren’t overtaking them. To make sure the three “seeds” for success mentioned earlier can thrive, It’s important that you set aside time to check on your growth in these areas, both to celebrate your small successes and take corrective action. Some ways you can more automatically make this time of reflection happen include:

 

  • Setting a daily alarm on your smartphone or wearable tech. Perhaps when you are normally driving home from work or not actively engaged in other activities. The alarm will be a quick reminder for you to assess your day and how you might make even better choices tomorrow.
  • Scheduling the time in your calendar. It might get crowded out by other things, but just the visual reminder will help keep you thinking about where you want to go and not just where you are now.
  • Creating a question a day to answer for yourself. You can allow your schedule to keep you so narrowly focused that you rarely look at the bigger picture. Do an internet search of “Powerful coaching questions” to give you some questions that will force you to look at more than the 37 things on today’s task list.

 

Plant the Seeds for Success and watch them grow.

 

jones loflin seeds for successIf you want a powerful visual of the need to use your time wisely, buy a pack of seeds of your favorite vegetable. Pour them into a clear jar or cup and place them in your work area. Then each time you notice yourself not using your time well, remove a seed and throw it into the trash. And as you do, think of the potential harvest of that favorite vegetable that is now lost with that seed gone. Pretty soon you might find that you see the “seed” of each moment in your day a little differently.
