Let’s face it: leadership ain’t easy. We wear a million hats, juggle deadlines, and strive to inspire our teams toward greatness. But here’s the thing: sometimes, in the midst of the chaos, we develop blind spots in leadership, habits that hold us back and hinder our team’s potential. I know, I know. You think you’re […]
We’ve all seen things happen at work that concern us.
They may concern us so greatly that we want to speak up about it but don’t know how.
When people do things they should not be doing, it does not aid in the betterment of the organization or the people you serve.
It happens over and over again and sometimes it’s hard to speak up.
I know you didn’t see this one coming.
Your boss has abruptly retired.
It shouldn’t be surprising to you that we’re going through unprecedented challenges as a nation right now.
Many people that thought they’d have a long career are rethinking what they want to do for the rest of their lives.
CEOs are retiring without even giving a 12-month advanced notice.
This is the person that you came to work for.
This is the person that put you in the position you’re in right now.
You look up to them, but now they’re retiring.
And you’re concerned about what this means for you.
You’re frustrated right now because you feel like you’re not being compensated what you deserve for the amount of experience you have and the amount of work you’re doing every day.
There are plenty of people that feel the same way you do right now; overworked and underpaid.
You’ve gone year after year, getting great evaluations and doing everything you’re supposed to do, but you’re still not paid equitably.
At least that’s what you feel in your gut.
When you don’t get paid what you’re worth, you start to develop imposter syndrome.
You feel like you don’t deserve the job and that’s why they’re not paying you.
You’ll start to look around for other opportunities because you don’t feel valued.
But if you leave your organization right now, it’s going to hurt your team because they care about you.
They need you but they don’t control whether you get the salary bump that you deserve.
Here is some advice to get out of this situation.
Every organization goes through change so you have to be a leader who can lead change. You must get your people to see the other side of the change and how you’ll be better because of it. When you do this, you will embody the most admired leaders in the world.
Last week, I told you that change is painful. It’s hard to move from where you are to where you want to be. Most of us try to make change happen by ourselves and in a vacuum. It doesn’t happen that way. We must create an environment for change. However, most of us don’t know […]
I wanted to share an important note that I will be making some significant changes soon. I am preparing to launch my new brand for you and the world. I want you to know that I value you, and I plan to continue to add value to you. I will always help you to be […]
A lot is happening in our world today. We face some difficult circumstances in our communities. Sometimes, these things can be overwhelming to think about every day. It can be paralyzing. I don’t want you ever to be paralyzed by difficult circumstances. I want you to know that you always have the power to change […]
I want you to know that I received a lot of feedback on last week’s email. Some people didn’t want to hear that their job is not coming back. Others were happy that I gave them something to think about. A few people said my message pushed them to make some tough decisions. They had […]
I don’t want to be coy about this. COVID-19 is changing our economy. It will be different forever. As a part of this change, your job may change too. When I mean change, your job may be different forever. You could permanently work from home. You may go back to a different work environment. And […]
