Season 2 Episode 51: Are Annual Reviews Still Relevant?

Season 2 Episode 51: Are Annual Reviews Still Relevant?

Are annual performance evaluations worth your time as a Leader? Do they really inspire better performance with your team?

This topic is divisive. Many Leaders are split on the annual review’s effectiveness. I still use them, but not as a standalone system for feedback. Your team deserves more than that.

They need empowerment, encouragement and engagement to thrive. They also need to feel safe to tell you how YOU can improve, too.

Season 2 Episode 49: Is There a ‘Best Time’ to Hire?

Season 2 Episode 49: Is There a ‘Best Time’ to Hire?

I was thinking about all the work we do and wanted to debunk a question I get asked all the time. That question is, “Is there a ‘best time’ to hire?”

If you do a simple Google search of this question, you’ll find that a lot of people think the best time to hire is in the New Year – in January or February.

In fact, that’s when many job seekers are advised to start applying.

In my opinion, there is no universal “best time” to hire. Everyone’s needs are different. But, there is a best time for YOU.

Season 2 Episode 48: Don’t Fear Hiring In The Great Resignation

Nearly 4.3 million workers have voluntarily quit their jobs in search of better opportunities, whether that’s at home with their kids or with an employer who offers better work-life balance.

Economists have dubbed this mass exodus as The Great Resignation. With so many people out of the workforce, employers are struggling to attract applicants for open positions.

Season 2 Episode 47: Define Success By Freedom — Not Revenue

Season 2 Episode 47: Define Success By Freedom — Not Revenue

How do you measure success? Do you measure it by bottom-line revenue? Client retention? Or team morale?

Every leader has a different definition of success. Warren Buffet said he measures success by how many people love him. Other leaders measure it by their ability to do what they love.

As you process what success means to you, I want to challenge you to measure it in a new way.

Season 2 Episode 43: Overcoming Decision Fatigue

Today we’re talking about something I suffer from every. Damn. day. It is DECISION FATIGUE.

The longer I lead, the more I get why some people wear black T-Shirts and jeans every single day. It’s so they have the bandwidth to decide what book cover they want, or what to name their next masterclass.
