In order to build a team performance culture, you have to have a mindset around why you are adding people to your business that supports what you’re trying to do in the long term. Your culture is not driven from the bottom up. It’s driven from you down.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. How knowing your vision, values and expectations comes into play.
  2. The definition of “performance culture” according to Kris.
  3. How the culture you have with your team is a direct result of your own thinking about the team.
  4. Hiring people who are better than you doesn’t mean to give them free reign.
  5. A key turn is going from “I’m hiring someone to work for me” to “I’m hiring someone to get results for me and to help me scale and think.”
  6. Your assignment after listening to this podcast – write down how you would describe your team culture and why it is that way.
  7. Then, if you would want it to be different than it is – what would you want it to be? Why? And what are the thoughts you need to believe about team members that will get you there?

What is the wake you leave behind? How do others experience you? What is your brand as a leader? Do you even know? When you understand yourself and how you affect others, you can be so much more impactful as a leader. It doesn’t mean you have to change, but making conscious choices about how you make decisions and interact with others can be a superpower.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. What do people think about when they think about you?
  2. We all have habits, behaviors or expressions that are not helping our presence. Are you keeping those parts about you around out of spite - or out of fear because you don’t know how to change it?
  3. Power of voice. Power of presence. Power of appearance.
  4. Spend some time this week paying attention to yourself.
  5. Your presence is a silent asset.
  6. Don’t contrive or fake it. Be conscious and tap into your superpowers.
