How can your ability to deliver tough messages improve your employee’s morale, engagement, and the bottom line?
TIME MAGAZINE says “Truth at Work, by Mark Murphy…smartly explains how both bosses and employees can battle the fibbing pandemic, making the workplace, at least, a little more honest.”
Most people have encountered the frustration and difficulty of getting people to hear and understand the truth. Maybe an employee has a brilliant idea, but nobody will listen. Or another needs to improve her performance but she won’t accept that there’s a problem. Maybe a team needs each person to be more collaborative but they won’t stop bickering and causing drama. Maybe a boss isn’t supporting an employee. Whatever the particulars, we’ve all encountered situations where life would be so much better if we could just get people to hear the truth.
When truth is absent in the workplace the consequences can be disastrous and pervasive. Feedback gets ignored. Coworkers become jealous. Employees worry if they’ll keep their jobs. Managers fear getting sued. And businesses face crises or failure as we’ve seen recently with Volkswagen and Nokia. No company can begin to create a culture of accountability, respect, and productivity unless they have a firm foundation in truth. (From Mark’s website Leadership IQ)
We will find out how to active the truth during our feature interview with Mark Murphy on Breakthrough Radio.

Leading Tomorrow’s Workforce
Tapping into the Leader in You
What do you think of when you see the word leader? Chief executive officer, the president of the United States (typo), Coach? While those roles may be the immediate images we conjure up in our minds when we see the word leader (or leadership), there is a leader in each and everyone of us.
Generally speaking, we have opportunities to lead in every aspect of our lives; and certainly well beyond the titles that define us at work. Even still, we often hold ourselves back from our true leadership potential. How many times did you have the right answer in a meeting but didn’t speak up? If your answer is even once, that’s too many times.
Some say true leaders are born. I’ve been conducting research on today’s talent and the workplace for over five years now, and I have seen countless examples of individuals (and managers) rising to the challenge to demonstrate great leadership. Leaders are defined by certain behavioral traits and as such, those behaviors often adapt based on context. If that premise holds true, then each of us can exhibit leadership through experience, practice, and awareness of oneself.
Join me on Breakthrough Radio as I discuss the unconventional ways you can stick out as a leader to fit into the brave new world of the future of work.
I’ll share ways in which you can quickly identify your strengths so you can showcase your leadership skills.
We’ll discuss the role emotional intelligence plays in leadership and organizational culture.
Every 3rd Monday your guest host, Yared Akalou, founder of Alcove (getalcove.com), a mobile workstation that is redefining how people work in open spaces delivers a breakthrough byte segment on the Future of Workforce.
