Kimberly’s “In Search of Excrement” podcast, exploring the crap that happens in organizations, and how to overcome the global pandemic of disengaged employees and toxic, sick, twisted organizations that suck your will to live! What’s the cure? Kimberly’s “Possibilities Toolbox”! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First let’s explore the DARK SIDE!
Bite-sized tasty tidbits with actionable insights that enable:
* Managers to become LEADERS
* Groups of people to become TRUE TEAMS
. . . who can achieve TOGETHER what none could accomplish alone.
Kimberly shares practical approaches that you can immediately implement as you learn to “lead from any chair”, regardless of position or title. If theory alone were enough we’d all be rich and thin! This is about APPLYING what you learn – or already know – in order to positively transform:
* Your team
* Your organization
* Our World
Listen. Be inspired. ACT!
By committing to just a few minutes of daily PRACTICE, YOU will become the kind of leader people admire and willingly follow. YOU will break free of “learned helplessness“. YOU will contribute meaningfully to overcoming the global epidemic of disengaged employees and dysfunctional organizations that suck their people’s energy and enthusiasm, and reduce all measures of business success.
#1 – PODCAST LAUNCH: Scrappy Kimberly – In Search of Excrement!
I’M DOING IT! Finally launching my podcast after 6 months of preparing with a wonderful podcast coach, Russ Johns, my favorite pirate!
The current prototype of my podcast title is “In Search of Excrement – the Crap that Happens in Organizations”, and we’re going to go deep into the dark side bullshit that is contributing to an epidemic of “BOSSHOLES” and widespread lack of employee engagement on Planet Earth.
Russ tried to talk me out of this “dark side” approach, but listen to my first episode to get a peek at why I chose to jump into the abyss.
#2 – Get Your Leadership Learners Permit!
Yup, I did it again! This time I rant about the pathetic lack of effective leadership in organizations. Just 5 and a half minutes. Have a listen!
#3 – Dealing with Execs Who Want Me to Fix Their People!
It’s been a challenge for me to be effective working with executives because . . . well . . . I believe they’re responsible for a lot of the crap that happens in organizations. But last year I got some coaching about this, and learned:
- Executives have a difficult job.
- I shouldn’t assume that they know the things I have learned about leadership, teams and organizations simply because these things are simple, have been known for decades, and are proven to work way better than typical approaches to “management”.
- I will be more effective if I am more empathetic to them.
OK, I mostly am practicing this, but I fell off the wagon and recorded this rant. SORRY!
