5/19/2019
More
+++ WARM UP YOUR VOCALS +++ Wait a minute now! Are you advocating more narcissism than we already have in some leaders? This is so egotistical. Why would a leader want to have his/her people sing their praise? Hold your horses, my friend. Don't get overheated and blow your gasket. [smile] When a leader is having his or her people sing their praise, it means one thing and that is what you'll discover by listening to this episode. There is also a surprising offer made towards the end that...

KGS55 Science Shows That Leaders Who Smile Are More Likely To Succeed by Kingsley Grant

5/18/2019
More
+++ SHOW THOSE WHITE ENAMELS +++ "A smile spurs a chemical reaction in the brain, releasing certain hormones including dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine increases our feelings of happiness. Serotonin release is associated with reduced stress. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression and aggression,” says Dr. Gupta. Imagine you as a leader, not smiling. What do you think the mood of the environment will be? What do you think will be projected onto your team members? Lastly,...

KGS54 Why Some Leaders Almost Never Have A Bad Day At Work by Kingsley Grant

5/17/2019
More
+++ NEVER HAVE A BAD DAY AGAIN +++ What if it was possible to never have a bad day again at work, would you want to know how? Before you write this off as nonsense and impossible, I want you to at least approach listening to this episode with an open mind. One of the things I talk about in my new book: The Emotelligent Leader - Succeed Where Others Failed, is that Emotelligent leaders stay open to learning. A leader who has a fixed mindset versus a growth mindset is doom to fail. In this...

KGS53 Five Familiar Leadership Problems - Which Ones Do You Have by Kingsley Grant

5/16/2019
More
+++ DON'T BE AN OSTRICH +++ Emotelligent leaders are self aware enough to know when they are getting a 100% buy-in from their people and when they are not. They will quickly agree that they are constantly looking for ways to get their team "on board." Unfortunately some leaders would rather keep their head in the sand and act as if all is well, when the numbers say otherwise. One thing I know and that is, numbers don't lie. So, what do we as leaders do when we acknowledge the problems we...

KGS52: If You Don't Address The Problem Now You'll Hate Yourself Later by Kingsley Grant

5/15/2019
More
+++ I COULD JUST KICK MYSELF +++ Have you ever not said or done something, only to walk away wishing you had? I have on more than one occasion. It's one of the more stressful things I do because it now consumes my energy, which could have been avoided. I "kick" myself wishing I had addressed the problem/issue while I had a chance. Why do we do this to ourselves? In this episode, I share some of my thoughts and experiences but most importantly, what you can do to avoid this behavior. The...

KGS51 Do You Recognize The 7 Early Warning Signs Of Team Dysfunction by Kingsley Grant

5/14/2019
More
+++ EARLY WARNING SIGNS +++ Don't you wish you knew what early warning signs to always look in different situation so that you could do something about it? I know that there are somethings outside our control that we are helpless in doing much to stop it, but we can prepare ourselves, if we know. One of the things I coach people to do is create two imaginary buckets and label one, controllable and the other, uncontrollable. I then ask them to separate what they are experiencing and put...

KGS50 Emotelligent Leaders Give Helpful Feedback and Not Constructive Criticism by Kingsley Grant

5/13/2019
More
+++ CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM +++ What is constructive about it? I cannot recall a time when someone said they were giving me constructive criticism where it ever felt constructive. Sometimes, in the end, it was helpful but it just didn't feel that way at the beginning. I would immediately brace myself for what was coming. What if we could find a better way of phrasing what we do instead of constructive criticism? In this episode, I share the alternative. The book mentioned, The...

KGS49 Simon Sinek Does Not Always Get It Right Like In This One by Kingsley Grant

5/12/2019
More
+++ SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO +++ There are times when we must disagree with even the most articulate, knowledgeable, charismatic expert. Why? They are not God. They are not all-knowing and can make mistakes, which even includes the Pope. I personally don't want everyone to agree with me and neither should you. Simon Sinek is seen as an elite expert in the areas of leadership and social matters. He has a very large fan base, which he has earned and rightly so. I'm one of them. However, he...

KGS48 Emotelligent Leaders Erase The Word Subordinate From Their Vocabulary and Why You Should Too by Kingsley Grant

5/11/2019
More
+++ TIME TO ERASE +++ Have you ever accepted something as normal because everyone had? And when you did, was there ever a time you had some questions or doubts but did nothing about it? Did you ever ask yourself why you didn't do or say something until someone else did? I have on quite a few occasions. And quite frankly, it was because I didn't know what else was there or what to do. Having evolved and grown in knowledge, confidence, and courage, I am doing something about it. In this...

KGS47 Emotelligent Leaders Are Better At Diversity Leadership by Kingsley Grant

5/10/2019
More
+++ DIVERSITY - THE NEW NORM +++ Diversity leadership is a hot topic in the 21st Century and rightly so. Not all leaders are skilled at diversity leadership. The sad part is that some don't even know that diversity leadership requires certain skills that they may not have. Others are trying to "force" everyone to fit into the mold they've created. And there's a small group of leaders who don't even know they are in the 21st Century. The need for diversity awareness has always been around....

KGS46 Fifth Secret of Successful Leadership is Salesmanship by Kingsley Grant

More
+++ THE FIFTH SECRET +++ When you hear the word salesman, what comes to your mind? Notice I didn't say who, but what. Is it the used car salesman? It's funny how this is where most people I've asked this question, including myself, goes. Why? Is it because of the stories we hear of from our own experience and maybe, from both? I've had both. How did this all get started? Have you ever wondered? Regardless, this impression seem to dominate the imagination of many people, which is so...

On the other hand, have you done something that at first you never thought you could? I have experienced both situations. In this episode you'll hear me reveal something you probably never knew as I used it to create a context for how you too can succeed just as others have. You'll hear the secret to making it...

What if I told you that I would coach you into how to increase your EQ and then offer you the $250K just for agreeing and doing the work, would that interest you even more? If you are a leader that is growth minded, which you ought to be especially in the 21st century, your answer has to be yes. Any other answer, makes me question your leadership mission.

KGS41 Lonely At The Top Is Failed Leadership by Kingsley Grant

5/4/2019
More
+++ IT'S YOUR FAULT +++ When a leader says it is lonely at the top, what they are saying, without realizing it, is that they have failed to lead well. I'm sure they're not thinking that. It is their way of wanting others to somewhat feel sorry for them and to exercise patience with them; give them some grace. Other leaders have heard the phrase parroted and may have simply adopted without giving it much thought as to what it possible means. In this episode, I dismantled this readily...

KGS40 Make The Boss Happy Is A Bad Strategy For Success by Kingsley Grant

The Boss? This term sound so positional. It is a mentality that needs to be changed. It creates a picture of a "greater than and less than". This is exactly what the mission of Emotelligence: The Art of Succeeding Where Others Failed, is trying to undo. There are a number of terms associated with leadership that doesn't serve us, others, and/or the organization, well. It actually works against all that we are trying to accomplish. So, what should we do? In this episode, there are some...

How do you upgrade your emotional intelligence? What does it even mean upgrading one's emotional intelligence? I recently went to one of my favorite fast-food joint ... Chic-Fil-A. At the register, the attendant asked me if I wanted to upgrade my order to a large from a medium. I politely said no. A medium will suffice. I did that simply from a "watching my diet" standpoint. It was beneficial for me to say no. However, it isn't beneficial for me to say no to upgrading my EQ. Why? This is...

KGS38 Put Sexy Back In Leadership Without The Sex by Kingsley Grant

Who decides sexy? Have you ever wondered who decides on and on what criteria do they base their decision on "the sexiest woman or man in the world?" This show is NOT about that even though it is mentioned briefly and what my thoughts are on that. But is there such a thing as sexy leadership or was there such a thing as sexy leadership? We cannot put back something if what we are putting back wasn't there in the first place. Right? O.K. Enough of that confusing talk. How do we put sexy...

KGS37 Happy Leader Happy Team by Kingsley Grant

+++ HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY +++ Have you heard this phrase: "Happy wife, happy life?" It's a sticky phrase because if rhymes, wife, and life. But is there more to it? My mind is funny when it comes to these things. I guess I have somewhat of a rebellious streak in me of sorts, almost always want to look behind things to see where, who, why, how, when, etc. Maybe it's curious instead of rebellious. Anyway, my mind wonders who originated this phrase: was is a man or a woman? Secondly, why? I'll...
