Today we’re talking about some warning signs to watch out for when you’re hiring a new employee. You’ve probably experienced some, or all, of these. And out of desperation, you may have found yourself making excuses for them or overlooking them. So I’m here to validate that these really are warning signs that an employee isn’t going to work out.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Why someone who is late to an interview is a warning sign.
  2. Why you should have everybody do an assignment before you hire them.
  3. It’s a bad sign when someone calls in sick when they first get started with you.
  4. Why someone who immediately starts making excuses and justifying it is another red flag.
  5. How overall dismissal or tone deafness is a warning sign.

I have noticed that many of my clients seem to fall into two polarizing positions. They either end up in a feeling of total helplessness or a place of arrogance. Ironically, the results are the same. Your confidence is priceless, but it’s not something you can just compensate for by hiding or abdicating. Here’s my suggestion …

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. About “I can’t” and the feeling of helplessness.
  2. What content / advice consumption is and why it happens.
  3. About “I shouldn’t have to…” and arrogance.
  4. Why you must learn the people part.

We all deal with the emotion of anger every now and then. There's nothing wrong with that. But we don't have to work out our anger with other people.

As leaders, sometimes we forget that we already command authority just because of our role - our title. We automatically carry the biggest stick, and arguing for us, is not a good look. It doesn't create a constructive culture, and I believe as leaders, there is no place for us to participate in that. Ever.

So, let’s talk about how not to indulge an arguer – and how not to be one ourselves.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Much of our perspective about how to communicate comes from our family of origin.
  2. What’s considered “arguing.”
  3. What to do in that moment – instead of indulging the “arguer.”
  4. How to deal with someone on the team who is an arguer.
  5. What to do if you are the arguer.
  6. Arguing as a form of manipulation.

Today I’m sharing an important observation I’ve made from numerous clients over the years. It’s a phrase that we most likely all use. It’s insidious, and it’s ineffective. And the chances are extremely good that eliminating it from your vocabulary will have a positive impact on your team and your ability to get the results you want.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. What the insidious phrase is.
  2. Why this phrase puts your employees in the position of being responsible for YOUR emotional health.
  3. How this phrase reminds you and your employees that they're in charge.
  4. A suggestion for a more productive phrase to use instead.
