The Coaching Sugars: Compromises, Earning a Living, and Being the Coach I Want To Be

The Coaching Sugars are back for their final close-out-the-year show! Next week, December 12 at 11 am EST, the Coaching Sugars, Mike McGinley and Kirsten Olson, will consider 'Compromises, Earning A Living, and Being The Coach I Want To Be.' The Sugars think about the ways new structures at the International Coaching Federation, used for evaluating coaching, are necessary and important, and may also constrict the artistry of coaching, in a letter from an experienced coach. Next they listen in on a letter from a coach who considers whether to cancel a big contract to be the coach they dream of being. As always, The Coaching Sugars offer responses to coaching and leadership dilemmas that are not about giving "the right answers" with a lot of certainty and authority, but instead offering truthful, thoughtful, heart-full advice based on their own coaching and leadership. Real, compassionate coaching and leadership talk, served up straight on December 12. Join us!

What It Really Means to Lead Culture with Gary Corless

Gary Corless, chief development officer of the Wounded Warrior Project and former CEO, has an ability we sometimes view as rare; the ability to really reflect on his experiences and to share the lessons he has learned back with the world. In the final show in our three-part series on culture in organizations, with guest host Randy Chittum, we talk with Gary about some of those lessons. We will hear how a leader actually creates and maintains culture. We will explore the benefits of a strong culture and the challenges of being a culture leader. Gary will also share his experiences of where culture comes from, how it can be implemented to be more than words on paper, and what happens when culture is “pressure tested.” Tapping into themes from the last two weeks, we will pull through threads about what happens when culture is overdone and what it means to attend to culture. As always, the focus is on leadership. We discuss all this and much more on November 28 at 11am EST, join us.

How Unconscious Bias Shapes and is Shaped by Culture with Jackie Cranford

How do we know when we tip into an unconscious bias that excludes others? Do we use culture as the rationale? In the second show in a three-part series about culture in organizations with guest host Randy Chittum, we talk with Jackie Cranford about how unconscious bias is present in how we create culture. Join us as we talk with Jackie, adviser and talent strategist, about how culture may perpetuate some biases and how culture can also serve to interrupt the damage done by unconscious bias. We will revisit some of the topics addressed in last week’s episode, with Gerry McDonough, such as the “walking around definition” of culture and “how people survive, thrive, and fit in,” and get Jackie’s take on the subject. All of this, and more, will be discussed on November 21, 11am EST. Join Randy Chittum and Jackie Cranford for what promises to be an enlightening discussion.

Understanding What Really Matters about Organizational Culture: A Conversation with Gerry McDonough, CEO of LeadFirst

According to Deloitte’s 2015 Global Human Capital Trends survey, organizational culture issues are now the number one challenge companies face around the world. The survey found that more than half of respondents say their organizations have either a poor program or no program at all to measure and improve culture. As coaches, we very often find leading culture to be a core challenge faced by the leaders we are coaching. We further find that leaders often operate with assumptions about culture that turn out to be inaccurate. In this week’s episode, guest host Randy Chittum will talk with Gerry McDonough, CEO of LeadFirst, a human capital consulting firm in DC. In this conversation, we will learn from LeadFirst’s culture studies now spanning more than thirty years, with almost 650 cultures studied and developed. Another key topic for discussion will be the impact of culture on performance and if there are cultural factors that indicate a greater likelihood of success.

Encore: Learning from NetFlix: Disruption as a Force for Creative Change

When Netflix started out, it leased a warehouse from the US Postal Service for its inventory of movies and TV shows. Today, content is provided online. Regarded as a leader of innovation in the entertainment industry, Netflix has disrupted not only its business model and an entire industry, but also its own thinking. No longer is Netflix just streaming content--its creating its own shows. And just last week, Netflix expanded from 60 to 190 countries, streaming its content to the whole world. As vice president of product innovation, it is Todd Yellin's job to understand what Netflix's 70 million global members are watching. Offering thousands of titles, Netflix works hard to make content discovery easy, putting the right title in front of each member at the right time. Join Host Kate Ebner as she explores with Todd how to understand disruption as a catalyst for creativity, innovation and breakthroughs--and what he has learned about the power of disruption for a leadership team.
