This is the first Veteran’s Day since the withdrawal of our forces in Afghanistan. Many Afghanistan veterans are struggling right now.

Col Scott Mann is an Afghanistan war veteran. He is a former Green Beret and the co-founder of Task Force Pineapple. You’ve probably heard of them. They’re a group of citizens working independently of the government to help Afghan special operators and their families since the withdrawal.  Scott is also a writer and producer. He wrote and produced a film called “Last Out — Elegy of a Green Beret” that tells the story of the Afghan war through the voice of the warriors and military family members who lived through it. The film is available, for free, starting on Veterans Day at lastoutfilm.com. All proceeds donated to the film go to help overcome veteran trauma caused by the Afghan collapse.

#0079 – When Stressing Out Employees is a Good Thing

The title of this podcast might be confusing. If you’ve followed this podcast for a while, you know I talk a lot about treating employees with respect. You might be thinking, how is stressing out your people respectful? Well – it’s all about growth. You’ve probably heard the phrase “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” This episode talks about the importance of challenging employees. It’s about putting them in circumstances beyond their current capabilities to give them a chance to learn and grow. Too many companies give their hard jobs to senior employees and they never let the new employees get the opportunities to learn. Great leaders provide those opportunities. Leadership expert, Robin Sharma describes what it is like when new employees are challenged “As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal.” The only way to get to higher levels of performance is to be stressed and stretched. In today’s episode, I’m going to tell you a story from my days as a junior officer on board the nuclear submarine USS Tennessee and how my captain was an expert at “pressure testing” his new employees. If you want to learn more about how submarine captains “pressure-test” their crews, pick up a copy of my latest leadership book. I cover this in depth in chapter 7 of All in the Same Boat. _____ Purchase my latest bestselling leadership book now All in the Same Boat - Lead Your Organization Like a Nuclear Submariner Visit our sponsor Bottom Gun Coffee Company use the discount code "DEEP" Become a leader worth following today with these powerful resources: Purchase my bestselling leadership book "I Have the Watch: Becoming a Leader Worth Following" use the discount code "DEEP" Subscribe to my leadership newsletter Follow Jon S Rennie on Twitter Follow Jon S Rennie on Instagram Follow Jon S Rennie on YouTube Learn more about your ad choices.

#0078 – Eliminating the Us and Them

Today, we’re going to talk about breaking down walls between groups of employees. If you’ve worked in any large company you know there is typically an “us and them” attitude between groups of employees. Whether it’s management and employees, or white-collar and blue-collar, or marketing and engineering, there is often animosity between departments. And it can be severe at times. I ran into this problem at the first manufacturing plant I led and I eventually figured out a way to eliminate this attitude. This is an easy technique that any leader can use to build unity in their organization. I hope you enjoy!

#0076 – The Gift of a Challenge

Today we are going to talking about a leadership gift. No, it’s not a cheap trinket with your company logo on it. It’s a gift that leaders can give their people to help them become a better version of themselves. It’s the Gift of a Challenge. For those that have read my first book, you might recognize the concept of leadership gifts. I have a whole chapter on the intangible gifts that leaders give. I mentioned a few in the book like the gift of trust, appreciation, faith, support, encouragement, and recognition. But, today we’re going to talk about one gift that has had a profound impact on my life and it’s a bit counter-intuitive. You might even be thinking, how is the Gift of a Challenge a good thing?
