Leadership & Education: A Conversation with Nick Greif VP, Go-to-Market Strategy & Communications at InStride
Nick makes the link between continued education and leadership explicit. We talk about ROI and other traditional tangible outcomes, but we also talk about other benefits of lifelong learning - including more diverse and more capable workplaces. What else? Nick chats with us about rethinking the traditional bachelor's degree required approach. Why? Well, a lot of really intelligent, really motivated folks can bring a lot of good to your organization if we unpack what we assume comes along with an individual who has a degree in hand. Here are the links to some of the success stories we talk about:Ashley (we discuss specifically): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuaKvvj21WoAdditional learner success stories: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLenXzvOJi0EkRLPPmRRy3JKskCMgA-zHtUntil next time, communicate with intention and lead with purpose.Looking for more leadership tips?Join our weekly email list to receive episode recaps, previews, and most importantly, communication-rooted solutions for your everyday workday questions and experiences.Sign up here: http://eepurl.com/h91B0vP.S.

Transforming Tough Conversations: A Conversation with Co-Founder and President of the Institute for Health and Human Potential, Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry
Tough conversations are, well, tough. That's why we call them that -- tough, challenging, hard, sensitive, etc. While these types of conversations aren't going away my friends, there are specific, pragmatic steps you can take that will make these more manageable. Guess what? Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry does us one better than manageable, he helps us to see how embracing these conversations in an audience-centered way can transform our workplace culture in really positive and transformative ways.  I had a lot of fun chatting with JP, and more importantly, I learned soooooo much from him. Y'all, I have a PhD in this, write in this area, teach it and I still walked away with so  much new knowledge -- this is a powerful conversation, for sure. Until next time, communicate with intention and lead with purpose.Looking for more leadership tips?Join our weekly email list to receive episode recaps, previews, and most importantly, communication-rooted solutions for your everyday workday questions and experiences.Sign up here: http://eepurl.com/h91B0vP.S.

Leadership, Business Ethics, & Speaking Up: A Conversation with Dr. Ryan Bisel
Dr. Ryan Bisel has been doing really important and really innovative work related to leadership, business ethics, and employee voice. What's employee voice? In short, it is communicating bad news upwards. More specifically, it may be disagreeing with your manager, voicing concerns about policy or practices, or otherwise articulating issues up the chain of command. What happens when we have a workplace where employee don't feel safe expressing concerns? We create a culture that is conducive to ethical breaches. Little oversights can morph into larger ones quickly, especially when employees think their concerns are not shared by the majority. What then?Silence. Ryan walks us through the ins and outs of employee voice, how it impacts ethics talk, and the role leaders play in shaping healthy, prosocial work environments. Until next time, communicate with intention and lead with purpose.Looking for more leadership tips?Join our weekly email list to receive episode recaps, previews, and most importantly, communication-rooted solutions for your everyday workday questions and experiences.Sign up here: http://eepurl.com/h91B0vP.S.
