[summary] =>

    In day-to-day conversation, "extravert" and "introvert" are used in ways which do not accord with their strict psychological definition. Leaders and managers need to understand the genuine meaning of extraversion and introversion if they are to bring out the best in their people.

    In this program Dr. Mike examines both the popular meaning of these words and their psychological meaning, then explores important considerations when leading a mixed team of extraverts and introverts. Download a transcript of this episode at https://www.LeaderPerfect.com/podcast/episodes.

They must also shape people's beliefs about these values and the principles which they derive from this belief. [summary] =>

    Motivation is rooted in values. We are not motivated to do something which has no value to us. Leaders must understand their people's values well enough to build motivation and inspiration off of them. Equally important, leaders must understand how what people believe about a given value determines  the principles they will use to implement that value.

    This episode looks at what Dr. Mike calls the VBP molecule -- the values, beliefs, and principles at the heart of motivation. Download a transcript of this episode at https://www.leaderperfect.com/podcast/episodes.

[summary] =>

    How much time do you spend every day in personal self-development? Do you make the excuse that your schedule is too full to make time for daily self-enrichment? Interestingly, some of the wealthiest entrepreneurs in the world -- people with unbelievably busy schedules -- devote two or three hours each day to expanding their knowledge and know-how. They are true lifelong learners.

    This episode looks at their example and identifies three vital priorities for people who would make personal self-development a daily priority. A PDF transcript of this program can be downloaded at LeaderPerfect.com/podcast/episodes.

    Like everyone else, leaders have a life purpose, a unique calling. When they can uncover that purpose and orchestrate their leadership around it, they position themselves for levels of personal fulfillment not otherwise possible.

    In this episode Mike offers practical exercises for identifying the underlying purpose of our lives and utilizing that knowledge as leaders. A transcript of this podcast is available at LeaderPerfect.com/podcast/episodes.

    We are born with personality. Character must be developed. And the quality of our character and our strength of character determine up to 85% of our success as leaders. Repeated studies over several decades have reached this conclusion.

    In this episode we explore the linkage between character and leadership success. We examine the difference between personality and character and show why consistent character is more important for leaders today than ever before.

[summary] =>

    Historically, the concept of leadership began on ancient battlefields, where the leader had to be courageous, above all else. Courage is still the most vital leadership trait. Successful leaders, even those who are not particularly virtuous, must have the virtue of courage to attain their goals. This episode explores why leadership courage is essential, not just for those in life-or-death settings like battlefields, but even for leaders in the white-collar world of an office tower.

    The fastest way for leaders to lose influence is to have their integrity called into question. Personal integrity is a paramount leadership virtue.

    Unlike other leadership traits, integrity cannot be faked. The very pretense of faking it obliterates it. This episode examines the true meaning of integrity and the role of integrity in building trusted leadership.

    Words are the leader's primary tool for motivating people.  The right words inspire. The wrong words discourage. Wise leadership maintains highly motivated teams by choosing words which pack clout, even small three-letter words.

    For trust to prevail in an organization, leaders must help every worker feel safe. In this episode, leadership coach Dr. Mike Armour (www.LeaderPerfect.com) examines how feeling unsafe leads to anxiety and fear and how these culprits usher in distrust.

    He also identifies a dozen signs of distrust. And he underscores the urgency of maintaining trust when managing change or reorganization.

    Leaders are generally aware that they have a duty to articulate and promote their organization's core values. But identifying these values is often a challenge. That's because so many values are important to the organization. Which ones are core?

    Complicating the issue, an organization's list of core values needs to be held to no more than seven values, preferably no more than five. Beyond that number, a list is too lengthy to be readily remembered. And people won't devote themselves to things which they can't easily remember.

    Core values are vital to an organization. But not all vital values are core values. Some are strategic values. Others are operational values. This episode explores a method for identifying which vital values in an organization are indeed its core values.

    What would it mean to your organization if you could increase worker engagement 20 per cent?

    According to research done by Gallup, low worker engagement costs the global economy seven trillion dollars per year. While engagement is higher in North America than in many other parts of the world, only a third of American workers are truly engaged with their organization.

    This does not mean that other workers are unproductive. They may indeed perform at an acceptable level. But they are somewhat indifferent toward the organization. They feel no particular passion for it, no great loyalty to it. It's just a place to earn a paycheck.

    In today's podcast, Dr. Mike Armour provides a roadmap for turning this situation around. He offers practical advice on how leaders and managers can enhance worker engagement by pursuing four strategies.

    First is to build connections with workers at a personal level. Second is to make collaborative communication between managers and workers commonplace. Third is to demonstrate caring commitment to workers individually and collectively. And fourth is to captivate workers with their leader's aspirations both for them and for the organization.

    While all leadership strives for behavioral change, most leadership scenarios do not require a change in identity, as well. That’s what sets transformational leadership apart.

    Transformational leaders succeed only by changing the organization’s sense of identity – its sense of who it is and what it may become. And this change is not purely marginal or peripheral. It’s substantive.

    To accomplish what they aim for, transformational leaders must do more than merely fiddle around the edges of organizational identity. They must change it markedly, so much so that the new identity spins off new patterns of behavior. This is why I describe transformational leadership as not your garden-variety leadership.

    At some point in corporate history, the words "manager" and "leader" came to be used synonymously, as though  leadership and management are one and the same. They are not. Leadership is uniquely people-centric in a way that management may or may not be.

    For example, we speak of managing people and leading people. We also speak of managing budgets and managing inventories. But we would never speak of leading a budget or leading an inventory. We only lead people.

    As a leadership coach, I've developed three questions which allow me to quickly determine whether a new client is indeed a leader or is simply functioning as a manager, but calling it leadership.

    In this episode I take you through those three pivotal questions and invite you to assess your own leadership performance in light of them.

    Leadership is one of the oldest roles in human society. Even the most primitive village needed leaders to assign duties and settle disputes..

    From that starting point to the modern world, every advance in human society and technology has required leaders to master new leadership skills and techniques. For leadership, the challenge to learn and adapt to change is never-ending.

    Great leaders are lifelong learners. But true lifelong learning is more than merely learning new things over a lifetime. It is an intentional, purposeful, structured approach to personal self-development.

    I've had the privilege of coaching dozens of leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs who exemplified what lifelong learning is all about. They embrace it. They embody it. They make it their way of life.

    In this episode I focus on four traits which are common to these exceptional men and women. For a printed copy of today's program, go to www.LeaderPerfect.com/podcast/. Or contact me on the same page.

    High-touch leadership promotes worker engagement in a day when pervasive technology can easily leave workers feeling disconnected from one another. Technology diminishes the number of human interactions necessary to get things done. And it replaces interpersonal conversation as the way to communicate and collaborate.

    The resulting loss of interpersonal connection often leads to problems with worker engagement. Astute leaders and managers counter that tendency by relying on the high-touch strategies espoused by John Naisbitt in his 1982 best-seller Megatrends. He coined the phrase "high tech/high touch" as a catchy slogan to underscore the way that management should respond to a workplace permeated with technology.

    Even though Naisbitt first called for high-touch leadership nearly four decades ago, there is even a stronger case for it today. In this episode we revisit his phrase "high tech/high touch" and underscore the urgency of applying high-touch leadership, not merely in a high-tech workplace, but anywhere that worker engagement is weak.

    While still a teenager, from a family of very modest means, I discovered that leadership was a way to have impact on the world around me, even without the personal advantage of wealth, social prestige, or political influence. That discovery ignited a passion for leadership in me. And it set my life on a trajectory which I've followed for decades.

    Now, I'm devoting the later chapters of my life to helping others find their own passion for leadership. This episode outlines how I hope to use this podcast to advance that dream. My goal is to make this podcast a regular source of encouragement, enlightenment, and enrichment as you upsize your leadership.
