How a Leaders (Bosses) Should Treat Employees

A leader must set the pace and show employees how to make an impact and how to achieve great results by setting the bar with their own actions. Whenever there are mistakes made by an employee, a leaders should first let the employee know that their job is secure, the world isn’t ending, and that everyone makes mistakes. Then they help them understand how to properly fix the mistake and make sure there is an acceptable solution and process in place to make sure the mistake is avoided in the future. Finally, a leader knows how to get buy-in to make sure that changes and improvements are not just understood, but embraced by the employees.  Otherwise, more errors can be expected.

How the Coronavirus Has Ushered in
a New Digital Age

It has (1) reduced the reluctance of those who are put off by technology to use much that is available, and (2) increased the tendencies of those who like and use technology to find additional and better ways to use what is available.

5 Keys to Work, Success, and Happiness

Interview Phil Crowley.

He has also spent nearly 25 years on the board of trustees of the Stevens Institute of Technology, with substantial involvement in the oversight of academic innovation and entrepreneurship.

 

Talking Points from Phil Crowley
on the 5 Keys to Work, Success, and Happiness:

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to observe many successful people, and I have found that there are five factors that seem common to them all—and missing in those who are not.

  1. Find something you LOVE to do that HELPS other people. if you love to do it, you’ll have an inexhaustible supply of energy for it. And if it helps others, there will always be a demand for it.
  2. Pursue it with PASSION and INTEGRITY. Passion will help you learn to do it well, and Integrity will attract others with integrity (and repel those who don’t).
  3. Set HIGH GOALS and decide to have SELF-CONFIDENCE. People who set high goals achieve much more than those with no or short-sighted goals; Self-confidence is a gift we give ourselves and is a decision that we make.
  4. ENJOY THE RIDE. The pleasure comes from the journey, not necessarily the ultimate destination.
  5. Be GRATEFUL. Recognize and celebrate the help others have given to you and pay it forward. Gratitude is an important value to embrace and share with those special people who had a successful hand in lifting you up.

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on Goals vs. Desires in Job Performance Reviews:

I read a sex therapy book that made the distinction between a desire and a goal.  This mistaken notion can help employers create better job performance reviews. 

  • Goals are different than Desires. A goal is something you want that requires no one else’s cooperation. A desire is something you want that requires the cooperation of at least one other person.

Talking Points from Carol Barkes on what she can say
in an interview :

Employees are no longer allowing their employers to silence them and they’re exposing their workplace for the toxic/racist cultures that they may breed. What can companies learn from these scandals so that they can start working on fixing their behaviors/cultures now? Here are 5 strategies to addressing toxicity in the workplace:

1) Communication is key. Having an environment that encourages open and honest dialog allows employees (over time) to trust they can speak without negative repercussions. This environment often helps companies identify blind spots as employees feel safer to speak out about issues and concerns.

Mansplaining, while typically refers to when a man is talking down to a woman about topics she may actually know more about, can also be used to talk about this occurrence with any person or group who has perceived authority or power over another.
