Leadership Author, Researcher, Consultant, and Host of The Unlabeled Leadership Podcast
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode Eight, Ronald Graves distinguishes the meaning of coaching from the popular notion and from other roles. He explains how professionals can leverage coaching to strengthen in their current positions. Also, Ronald describes his Five Levels of Listening. 00:23 Prologue: Disclaimer: He’s my Coach and Friend Ronald has more than 35 years of business consulting experience, in which he served in leadership roles for 20 years. He is well versed in organizational performance improvement and leadership, and he is a certified coach. For the past year, Ronald has coached me as I work to refuel my entrepreneurial spirit! 01:32 Part 1: Coaching Does Not Pour Information into You Depending on the situation, managers function as teachers, trainers, consultants, leaders, or mentors. The commonality of these roles is the act of giving information. 05:41 Part 2: Inside->Out Rather than Outside->In Your potential is internal, and coaching helps you discover your potential. Coaching is a partnership with you as the focal point. 21:11 Part 3: Asking Questions and Listening at Five Levels Except for one type, coaching is about asking questions and listening. Ronald describes five levels of listening. _________________________________ How You Can Support the Show Unlabeled Leadership is a free service for people to learn about leadership.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode 7, Felix Nater reveals how one superior influenced him in practicing lifelong stewardship. He scrutinizes the misuse of authority and encourages us to work continuously on our congruency. 00:00 Prologue: The Threat Assessment / Kindness Paradox Felix Nater has consulted hundreds of organizations about preventing workplace violence. He served in the Army and later in the U.S. Postal Services as a Postal Inspector. Felix has completed hundreds of threat assessments. He has investigated mail theft, burglary, armed robbery, and even violent crimes. More notable, though, is Felix’s kindness towards others. 02:10 Part 1: Fostering Stewardship I’m unclear what can trigger people to shift from focusing on themselves to stewarding others. Maybe some make the transition after an accomplished career, but that isn’t always the case. Felix explains what someone said to move towards stewardship. 09:15 Part 2: Scrutiny Reduces Capability When some people meet with a team, teammates immediately begin generating ideas. I know a few managers who can change their environment to bring out the best from their direct reports. Felix’s story, however, is not about such people. 17:03 Part 3: Congruency Strengthens Character We tend to behave differently when interacting with different people. How we talk to our boss, friends, family members, children, customers, and even people we dislike can vary. Felix challenges our behavior variability as a way to build our character. _________________________________ How You Can Support the Show Unlabeled Leadership is a free service for people to learn about leadership.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode Six, Peter Popovich challenges how we consider our capacity to affect our circumstances. He characterizes what giving up control means, and he recommends that we begin incorporating a simple but powerful habit into our daily lives. If you ask Peter what he does, he might tell you that he’s an executive coach, consultant, franchise owner, and entrepreneur. However, the best way to describe Peter is a lifelong learner. 00:21 Prologue: Learning and Staying Curious Through each career shift, Peter’s continuously leverages his ability to learn. Peter has multiple career experiences. He has been a sales representative, marketer, manager, professor, engineer, athletic Foundation director, and realtor. Peter is a tennis champion and a senior games gold medalist in three sports. You can read more about his career by accessing Peter’s website in the link below. 01:38 Part 1: Who will write to me? In our youth, we tend to believe our results are caused by forces outside of us and out of our control. Peter hints at this belief when revealing a conversation between him and his sister. 11:52 Part 2: One of the Oldest Managerial Mistakes Whether a new supervisor of a team or an executive managing a business, those in charge want to take charge. Being effective at taking charge may be what led us to such roles and may feel instinctive. Peter talks about a CEO whose powerful problem solving drags the company’s productivity. 22:56 Part 3: The Mirror Enables Consideration and Serious Thought Peter tasks us to build and strengthen a specific habit until we leverage it throughout our day. _________________________________ How You Can Support the Show Unlabeled Leadership is a free service for people to learn about leadership.

On Wednesday episodes, I share leadership beliefs and unlabel terminology. In Episode Five, I discuss the first of seven leadership principles, Believing in Others (or, believe in others). I explain how a concept can appear simple but isn’t. I describe a baseball analogy to illustrate how managers can behave as if they seem to not follow the principle. Finally, I talk about how learning relates to the principle. 00:00 Prologue: It’s about Principles Rather than focusing on leadership qualities or values, I prefer talking about leadership principles. After analyzing 16 leadership books, I identified seven principles. The focus of the show is on the first one, believing in others. 04:49 Part 1: So, Why Did You Hire Me? Hiring managers search for job candidates who are the most qualified and have the right credentials and experiences. An assumption that hired candidates make is that the manager chose them because of their capability to execute their job tasks. Unfortunately, too many managers behave as if they don’t believe in the new employee’s abilities. Instead, they prefer to tell employees what to do and think for them. 09:15 Part 2: Play Ball! I use a baseball analogy to illustrate how managers tend to take more control of how we perform tasks than necessary. If a player is competent, a manager might ask the player to hit the ball without dictating anything more than a few broad guidelines. 13:46 Part 3: People Can Learn While believing that people can learn seems obvious, some managers don’t treat their employees as if they can learn. Because of something called neuroplasticity, scientists discovered that people continue learning well into old age. Again, this might seem obvious, but managers might unconsciously act as if they don’t believe this. _________________________________ How You Can Support the Show Unlabeled Leadership is a free service for people to learn about leadership.
