Guest: Brian Ahearn, Chief Influence Officer at Influence PEOPLE Employee engagement at work continues to nosedive. So how can you motivate your team? Show them you care!

S5-Ep8: Democracy on the Run

2/18/2024
Are leaders letting democracy die? Less than half of the world’s nations are full-fledged democracies today. That’s down from just 20 years ago. Part of the problem is a nation’s democratic death usually isn’t dramatic or sudden; it’s often a series of subtler, slower moves such as only appointing loyalists to cabinet posts and judgeships, or threatening the press if coverage isn’t towing the party line. How does this happen in leadership? In this episode, three international thought leaders -- Matt Qvortrup, Veronika Anghel, and Mike Hardy -- discuss how a growing number of despots, dictators, and demagogues have finessed techniques to undermine democracy…and leadership strategies to strengthen democracies against them.

S10-Ep8: Love at First Slice - Pizza & Passionate Leadership

2/14/2024
Guest: Tom Krouse Lots of leaders claim their products are made with love. Donatos Pizza means it: they practice Agape Capitalism. As CEO Tom Krouse explains in this episode, Agape Capitalism puts a love of humanity at the center of their company processes and revenue generation.

Sales soared higher the nights the people-person was in charge! Tom talks about that, his own leadership style, and the parallels between playing music in a band and great leadership.

S4-Ep9: The Dance Between Leadership & Followership

1/28/2024
Guests: Margaret Heffernan & Ira Chaleff What we need from leaders today is vastly different than even a decade ago. That change began years ago; the pandemic merely accelerated it. The reason is simple: turbulence and uncertainty are now chronic conditions. Now, guest Margaret Heffernan says, leadership is about building organizations that thrive in turbulence. She shares six steps to make that happen. Then, Ira Chaleff switches the perspective to your followers. After all, the best leadership requires the best followership. Influence is not unidirectional from leader to follower; it bounces back from the front line to the back office, too. Ira reveals how followers act with courage to collaborate with leaders -- and shares the counterintuitive idea of intelligent disobedience.

S10-Ep5: Can You Hear Her Now?

1/23/2024
Guest: Celina Caesar-Chavannes What’s your secret identity? Our true selves are often buried so deeply that they’re a secret to us. It’s hard enough to lead authentically when you don’t know who you are – but how can you motivate your team if you don’t know who they really are, either? The key is the praxis of humanization, a way of helping your coworkers bring their authentic selves to the office. Guest Celina Caesar-Chavannes discovered this truth in her own personal journey – a journey that took her to the halls of power as a member of Canada’s parliament, where societal stereotypes continued around her unabated.

S5-Ep9: Ethics and Problem-Solving -- Leadership Theory & Practice

1/20/2024
Guests: Joanne Ciulla & Keith Grint Why do so many leaders have trouble acting ethically? For nearly three decades, Joanne Ciulla has focused her research on ethics in leadership. Even though the framework for ethics is over 2,400 years old, our definition of being ethical holds firm today. Why is it taking so many leaders so long to catch on? Her answers may surprise you. Joanne earned the International Leadership Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018. Keith Grint did, as well; Maureen interviews him in the second half of this episode.

S10-Ep4: Law & Order...& Leadership

1/17/2024
Guests: Rob Elkington & Les Sylven To serve and protect: servant leadership takes on a whole new meaning for a law enforcement leader. Society’s expectations for policing have changed radically – for example, up to 80% of what officers do overlaps with what social workers do! Add calls for reduced funding, labor shortages, brutality…and gone are the days of simple “cops and robbers” policing. But the leadership and hierarchy of policing have changed very little. So can law enforcement truly rise to the challenges of both reform and crime without new styles of leadership? Guests Rob Elkington and Les Sylven have some very surprising solutions that go far beyond the stereotypes of the hardboiled police commissioner – solutions that any leader of a high-stress workforce will find extremely useful!

S5-Ep12: Reflecting on Leadership & Peace-Building

12/10/2023
Guest: Mike Hardy Leading the world into peace is so monumentally difficult, it’s never been done (Rome’s propaganda about the Pax Romana aside!). But understanding how leaders have brought regional peace, and ends to war, has been done – and more than worthy of study. Guest Mike Hardy founded the Center for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University. He’s also the board chair of the International Leadership Association. Mike with host Maureen Metcalf about the importance of uncovering the ways leaders bring about peace – and the roles both organizations play in that. Then he asks the big question: how can we all be effective leaders in this increasingly volatile present to create a more peaceful and prosperous future?
