Our extensive and growing topics list runs the gamut of every conceivable workplace challenge that employees face day-in and day-out. Most of our episodes are centered around these everyday challenges (i.e., You Heard What About Me? How Not to be the Last to Know the Word on the Street About You) rather than being based on a classroom type topic (i.e., How to Receive Feedback). We can also produce custom episodes on topics of your choice.

Do Ask, Don't Tell How to Develop Your Direct Reports By Your Choice of Leadership Style (10.0 MB)
Every leader has the dual responsibilities of delivering great business results and developing their staff. Many leaders see staff development as an activity that is on top of their more important bottom line responsibilities, but what if you could develop staff just by your choice of leadership style? We're talking about choosing a leadership style of asking rather than telling. Leading by asking questions that cause your direct reports to think through issues and come up with solutions that may be better than the ones you had in mind may take more time in the beginning, but the pay off for you as a leader is enormous. Curious? Just ask us how and we'll show you in this podcast.
