Thane Marcus brings such spice to life and is a wizard when it comes to personal and professional development. As we continually examine the wonderful world of company culture, it’s always important to remember how much culture is influenced by each individual in our organizations. So is building an amazing culture the responsibility of the leadership team? Nope. It is shared. We all have a part to play. So this episode can help anyone from a CEO to a new grad, become an incredible individual contributor to a company culture you can be proud of.
Some questions I ask:
- What does it look like to build a “teachable” culture in our organizations? Is there a way for both employees and leaders to learn from one another.
- What might be some examples of personal systems that people can use to become a more high performing and effective at their jobs, especially when there are predefined systems in the workplace that may, or may not, be conducive to our personal growth?
- Why do we need to be healthy?
- If leaders are doing something that is actually compromising employees’ health, are we actually shooting ourselves in the foot from having high-performing teams?
- What does it cost our businesses when we don’t make room for people to show up as their full selves at work: Body, soul & spirit?!
- What are millennial wanting to see in the workplace of the future that they’re not seeing right now?
In this episode, you will learn:
- Thane discusses that in a recent blog that self-employment is most certainly not for everyone.
- It can be extremely beneficial to begin to train ourselves in leading up the chain of command. In a way of honour and respect, we can gain influence and empowerment when we learn this skill, benefiting both parties.
- Our performance is tied to sleep, recovery, and self-care. Contrary to popular belief, sleeping less, eating terribly, avoiding exercise will not get us ahead, but rather, hold us back.
- Leaders have a responsibility to steward their roles well specifically by learning what makes millennial tick and helping them to use those traits as their advantage. Creating an atmosphere that leverages who millennial are, and how they’ve grown up is key. We can use who they are to better support who they can become as professionals in our organizations.
