Episode 197 – The Great Resignation

0 Episode Rating

-Across the world, people are leaving – or thinking of leaving – their jobs and careers in stunning numbers.

-Is the solution in Agile?

-Perhaps because of the pandemic, people are waking up and lighting up to a different future. 

-It may be the case that they’re realizing that what they had been told was an unthinkable model of work is actually quite doable, with little or no downward impact on productivity.

-People have enjoyed less commute time, more family time, more choice in how and where they work.

-So how do we plug the drain?

-compensation is not the only consideration.

-flex hours and remote work play a heavy factor. People want to work where they want when they want. For too long, companies have rewarded butts-in-seats, long hours, and always-on engagement. Now that they’re finding they have options, they want to tip the scale back in their favour; and once the veil has been lifted, it’s hard to close it again

-Increasingly important is supporting side projects and future hustle – If pensions and benefits are slowly eroding over time, people want to feel like they have an option to design income streams and passion projects for the uncertain future.  

How Can Agile Help?

-Whatever we do, we must invest but invest with intention. If we throw money, promotions, and flex time at a select few fence-jumpers, we have to be prepared to do so for all.  And that investment cannot be blind – we have to be clear about what we expect it to DO.

-Ultimately, we want happier people. An engaged workforce simply delivers better results for the end customer.

-We cannot afford to wait months or years for a definitive response. we need to communicate early and start LISTENING to needs – and implementing experiments and proposals so we can stem the exit

-Leaders must admit that change is here, it is time for an adjustment and that people are your finest asset

-We cannot see this as a stop-gap measure. We must insist on cultural change, on sustaining environments for people that not only attract the best talent but create enviable cultures that place the wellness and happiness of people at least as high as that of the customer

Badass Unfiltered – Strength

0 Episode Rating

One of the critical pieces of leadership is strength – strength of character, ideas

We’re never taught how to be strong so strong has become a bad word, associated with bullies or pushinesss or anger or worse

Strength means the ability to manage and control the thoughts and emotions that launch in response to injurious words or actions.  It means the ability to stay centred and unswayed.  It means resolve and grit. it means internal certainty. No MBA and no certification will teach you that.

-Lash back when we feel offended, shame

-Criticize in order to feel big, strong

-Hate on the ideas of others – this one is huge in 2021

-Seek Attention and approval

-Apologize for who they are, bow to the crowd

Episode 196 – Stay Hungry

0 Episode Rating

The secret to boundless energy and consistent forward momentum is to stay hungry every day.  Keep reaching, stretching, learning, and acting as if you’re starting from zero.   Assume you know nothing, and nothing is guaranteed.

Badass Unscripted – A Great Coach Keeps Watch

0 Episode Rating

Most teams are composed of people who have other day jobs.  This will be particularly true of a product owner who has multiple priorities and projects, but increasingly true of all team members – they have multiple accountabilities across the organization.

 

So how do you work with a team like that?  They may not be living agile values every day…they may be getting different versions of it…agile is something you have to live with as a way of BEING, but you can’t BE it for 30 minutes a day and expect change down to the soul level.

 

Someone must stay vigilant.   We must make daily promises and keep them.  We must set weekly goals.  we must show product, not talk about progress.   We must keep focus and prioritize the high-value things.

 

That means you need to keep them on the fundamentals.  You need to help them become successful.  You must shine a light on right thinking and right action so that they can develop right habits until…you don’t have to be so vigilant, and they can just BE agile.

Badass Unfiltered – The Hero’s Arc

0 Episode Rating

A dark stage, a single light, and a stool.  The feel of a live room (that we all miss) is the perfect crucible for a contemplation that becomes a rallying cry.  What if we feel called to do more, be more?  Is it out duty to lean into the uncomfortable?  What happens if we fail to oppose a prevailing force that we know is wrong?

Episode 194 – Do, Practice, Rehearse

0 Episode Rating

Too much of what we “know” about in the field of high performance comes from books, memes, or youtube videos.  Inspiration is essential, so is knowledge, but it is how you ACT upon both of these that is a difference-maker.

 

Can you identify what courageous leaps you took today?   What you were humble enough to learn?  What you were disciplined enough to earn or get?   If not, you are studying, NOT practicing.   Rehearsal trumps learning any day.

 

I used to be like this.  I used to memorize all of the sayings and wisdom only to have it inaccessible to me when I most needed it.   The only way to get that is to pick an area so you can focus, decide on the outcomes you want, and learn to NOTICE when a new action is required from you in your daily life and work.

 

Only when I was able to make slow changes and gain success did I build the required memory and confidence to do it again and again…and THEN it becomes a way of life.  A daily performance.

Was someone unjust in their words?  Or are you just bad with criticism?

Were you really just observing, or just scared to jump in?

Are you working on yourself, waiting for the right moment, or scared to leap?

Is something out of your league, or do you just tell yourself it is?

 

This is shadow work.  What tapes have you been playing your whole life that keep you from getting to another level of skill?   Rehearsal is not good enough – if you rehearse the wrong things, you will deliver a wrong performance.

 

You have to work on your shadow.
