Employee safety is being redefined. We write volumes of standard operating procedures about it. We measure it, regulate it, and insure against its risks. In the U.S. alone, organizations funnel billions into creating workplaces and environments in which employees are safe to bring their best talents. But physical safety, and added creature-comfort perks like stocked snack bars, open-air offices, and foosball tables, only do so much. They don’t adequately address an employee’s state of mind. They all but ignore employees’ psychological safety.

Burnout has become a pervasive and pressing problem in today’s world. With increasing working hours, heightened expectations, and ever-present digital connectivity, people are finding it harder and harder to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Leaders and teams are no exception, as they experience heightened pressure to perform at their best on a consistent basis. Burnout is no longer just an individual issue, but has spread across industries and even whole societies. High levels of burnout can result in lost productivity, declining mental and physical health, and turnover in organizations. It is essential that we create a culture that supports work-life balance and employee well-being to mitigate this problem and enhance the performance of leaders and teams alike.
Leadership is not just about commanding people and getting results. It’s also about the subtle nuances of influencing and manipulating one’s followers in order to achieve desired outcomes. The ability to effectively tap into the “psychological strings” of individuals, while at the same time establishing mutual trust and respect, can vastly increase a leader’s capabilities. However, it’s important to note that such strategies must be used carefully as any misuse could lead to fallouts or even backfires. In this article, we will discuss some common methods for influence and manipulation among leaders and explore how their nuances have a significant impact on their success.

Welcome to episode 232 of the Peak Performance Leadership Podcast, where your host, Scott McCarthy, goes solo to explore the topic of leadership. In this
Recently I saw an add that someone said that they would turn you from a follower to a leader in 90 days or less! I was absolutely floored, irate, and embarrassed as a coach! This ideology means that leadership is a destination. That it has a start and end point. Which, yes I will agree that at some point you started leading and at some point you’ll stop leading, but that was not the meaning of this message. Rather that within a specific period of time you can become a leader and say that’s all folks! I’ve made it so I can stop trying now. THIS IS WRONG!
Through this episode, I get a little ranty, a bit fired up. It’s likely different than anything you’ve heard from me to date. But I am passionate to say that leadership is a journey. We must continue to develop, evolve, learn and grow as leaders to remain effective. That is why, leadership is a journey and not a destination. Enjoy!
In the end results do matter. It matters to your company’s bottom line, it matters to your team’s morale, and it matters to your personal pride. But yet all too often we don’t get the results we are looking for, why is that? Sometimes we need to look inwards to find out that it is us as leaders who are the cause of our own burdens.
Experts have long said that morning habits and routines are a pathway to achieving peak performance. If you study the great leaders of our time and those of before, a solid morning routine stands out as a common dominator. However, as of late the morning routine has been under attack from all forms of distractions and other things wanting to steal your limited time but more importantly your focus.
It happens commonly in all organizations. You’ve been promoted. Congratulations! However, now you are no longer a peer with your subordinates, you are their supervisor. The relationship has changed, you are still the same person who you were earlier but they no longer see it that way. It’s a tricky situation to navigate which if done wrong can result in a lack of respect and trust, and ultimately broken relationships.
However, it does not have to be that way. Former peers now subordinates and you can have a healthy relationship moving forward, it will just take a little bit of time and a whole lot of effort on your part.
