The Power Of Saying “Yes” To New Ideas

In this episode, Shannon Waller talks about the dangers of the “Excellent Trap.” Are there activities you have superior skills but no passion for? Are you bored with them but resisting having someone else take them on? Let Shannon convince you why you should let go of these “Excellent,” but not “Unique Ability,” activities. Shannon has useful advice on how to identify the activities, when it’s time to let them go, and who to hand them off to. Download Episode Transcript Show Notes: Finding aspects of an idea to say yes to can significantly increase collaboration and creativity within your team. Team productivity depends heavily on whether entrepreneurs can create a positive space for sharing ideas. To foster this kind of idea-sharing culture, it’s important to acknowledge and respect the mindset of individuals who are brave enough to come to you or their team leaders—people who stand higher above them in the company’s hierarchy whether it’s explicit or not—with their ideas. There are practical techniques you can use for engaging with and validating new ideas, all of which promote constructive dialogue and problem solving. Team collaboration only gets better when you seek out and engage with new ideas from individuals whose thinking profiles and striving instincts differ from your own. Graciously finding parts of an idea to support, rather than outright rejecting ideas that aren’t perfect in their entirety, can also lead to deeper conversations and more effective teamwork. You can create a more collaborative environment for discussion when you try to find common ground with whatever idea is being pitched to you. Resources: Working Genius The Kolbe A™ Index

The Excellent Trap: The Danger Of Not Letting Go

In this episode, Shannon Waller talks about the dangers of the “Excellent Trap.” Are there activities you have superior skills but no passion for? Are you bored with them but resisting having someone else take them on? Let Shannon convince you why you should let go of these “Excellent,” but not “Unique Ability,” activities. Shannon has useful advice on how to identify the activities, when it’s time to let them go, and who to hand them off to. Download Episode Transcript Show Notes Signs To Look Out For: Loss of passion: If you find yourself going through the motions without the same level of excitement or interest as before, it could be a sign that you’ve outgrown the activity. Boredom and lack of challenge: Activities that were once stimulating may become routine and unchallenging over time, leading to lack of interest. Others who show skill and energy: Pay attention to people around you who show a keen interest in the tasks you excel at but no longer feel passionate about. These individuals may bring fresh ideas and creativity to the table. Benefits Of Passing Off Tasks: New perspectives: Allowing someone else to take over tasks can bring in new perspectives and innovative approaches that you may not have considered. Freeing up time: By delegating tasks that no longer fire you up, you free up time to focus on activities that engage your creativity and align with and help you grow your Unique Ability®. Team growth: Passing off tasks can also contribute to the growth and development of your team members, providing them with opportunities to showcase their skills and creativity. Steps To Take: Self-reflection: Identify Excellent activities where you have superior skill but lack passion. For comparison, also make a list of your Unique Ability activities, those you find endlessly fascinating and motivating. Pick one or two Excellent activities to let go of. Identifying potential candidates: Keep an eye out for individuals within your team or network who exhibit enthusiasm and creativity in the areas you are considering passing off. Initiating conversations: Approach potential candidates and discuss the possibility of them taking over the tasks. Observe their reactions and eagerness to explore these responsibilities. Transition planning: Once you find a suitable candidate, plan a smooth transition of responsibilities, ensuring that the handover is seamless and well-communicated. Conclusion: Recognizing when to pass off activities where you excel but lack passion is a crucial step toward personal growth and team development. By entrusting tasks to individuals with a fresh perspective and enthusiasm, you not only free yourself from mundane (to you!) responsibilities but also foster a culture of collaboration and growth within your team. Embracing this mindset of delegation and empowerment can lead to enhanced creativity, efficiency, and overall success in both personal and professional endeavors.

Daring To Build An Intentional Culture, with Mark O’Donnell, Kelly Knight, and CJ DuBe’

Looking for ways to improve your team's performance and create a positive work environment? In this episode of the Team Success podcast, host Shannon Waller interviews entrepreneurs Mark O'Donnell, Kelly Knight, and CJ DuBe’ about their new book, People: Dare to Build an Intentional Culture, which focuses on the importance of creating an intentional culture within organizations and how it impacts the success of a business. They delve into topics such as the difference between accidental and intentional cultures, the concept of "right people, right seats," and the mindset required for leaders to build and maintain a thriving culture. If you're looking to transform your organization and create a culture that attracts and retains top talent, this episode is a must-listen. Download Episode Transcript Show Notes Building an intentional culture requires courage and boldness. It's not an easy task, but it is essential for the success and growth of any organization. By being intentional about the values, behaviors, and mindsets that shape your culture, you can create a workplace that attracts and retains top talent, fosters collaboration, and drives long-term success. The concept of "right people, right seats" is crucial for building a high-performing team. It involves finding individuals who align with your core values and possess the skills and capacity to excel in their roles. It’s also about surrounding oneself with like-minded individuals who align with the company's mission and purpose. This ensures that everyone is working toward a common goal and contributes to a positive and productive work environment. By ensuring that each team member is in the right seat, you can maximize productivity, minimize conflicts, and create a harmonious work environment. Genuine care and concern for your team members is a powerful force that can transform your business. When leaders prioritize the well-being and growth of their team members, it creates a culture of trust, loyalty, and engagement. The accountability chart is a powerful tool that helps you define the structure of your business and ensure that each individual is in the right seat. It goes beyond the traditional organizational chart by focusing on accountability and aligning roles with core values. Regularly reviewing and adjusting the accountability chart is essential to maintaining a healthy and high-performing culture. Building an intentional culture requires courage and focus. It involves being deliberate in hiring individuals who align with the company's values and ensuring they’re in roles where they can thrive. Leaders must also have a growth mindset and be willing to have honest conversations to address any issues and support the development of their team members. It’s essential for leaders and managers to provide feedback, address performance issues, and make necessary changes to ensure that team members are in roles where they can thrive and contribute to the company’s success. When you empower teams with a shared purpose and passion, you create an environment where team members not only feel valued, but motivated and excited to contribute meaningfully to the success of your company.
