The financials of a company only show its profitability, but don’t say anything about its leadership. An organisation could look good on paper, but deep inside there could be issues making its employees unhappy. As a leader, you want your employees to thrive and grow because at the end of the day, what really drives an organisation to reach new heights are its people. In this episode, the Corporate Mindfulness Guru, Tevis Trower, joins us today as she tackles what it really takes to be an effective leader. As the CEO and founder of Balance Integration Corporation, she has dug deep into the culture and behaviours present in organisations she’s worked with and brought to light the issues preventing them from levelling up. They say there’s strength in vulnerability, and Tevis is here to discuss just that as she talks about what is key for leaders to truly leave a lasting impact.

Tevis Trower: Re-Humanizing the Interview Process By Shifting Our Language
Source: https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-9uau5-aa01c4 We don't hire for human competency but for skill set. Our language is inhuman in spite of the very real experience of working with HUMANS. People want Connection and Authentic Interaction. We need to understand What makes you, you? Today’s Quote: “Learn everything humanly possible about everyone you do business with." -Harvey Mackay (Swim with the Sharks) Show Guest: CEO of Balance Integration Corporation | Advocate for Corporate Culture & Employee Engagement Tevis Trower is a pioneer in optimizing corporate cultures. Heralded in bestselling Megatrends 2010 as “corporate mindfulness guru for the new millennium”, Tevis has assisted powerful organizations ranging from Disney to Morgan Stanley in optimizing their most precious assets: human beings. She has created and facilitated global executive immersions for prestigious organizations including Harvard Business Review Events, Young Presidents Organization, PWC, Bloomberg LP, Viacom, Google and The Economist on issues including mindfulness, executive lifestyle, personal mastery, innovation, and the role of consciousness in creating radical success. You can find profiles and expert advice from Tevis featured in respected media outlets including Forbes, Fortune, BusinessWeek, Glamour, YogaJournal, CIO, Pink, RealSimple, Crain’s, New York Post, Financial Times, WWD, New York Observer, MSNBC, FoxBusiness, NY1 and Martha Stewart. As NYU Faculty teaching Business Creativity & Personal Mastery, Tevis has also served as worklife expert to WebMD and Huffington Post. Tevis lives what she teaches spending time in NYC, Montauk and Woodstock, enjoying surfing, snowboarding and entertaining friends at home with her dachshund, Ruby. Episode highlights: Why it is important to re-humanize your hiring process Changing the mindset by shifting the language The formula for a successful shift Problem: Why is this important? Because we focus upon skill development to get into the roles we aspire to, we buy into the notion that work and life are separate. But the reality is that we are only one person, one being. Through this buy-in to self-abnegation, we leave ourselves out of the workplace and all but guarantee to burn out and disillusionment. When we approach interviewing that way, we’re bound to forget that the person across from us is first and foremost a human being. Impostor syndrome of the interviewers (hiring managers!) IS-is there a place for me here? Everyone feels a little like a fake/fraud. Myth: This person is only as good as their resume. Truth: Most of the best people, have the worst resumes Mindset Creating a corporate culture happens one conversation at a time. Talking about what you are passionate about, what matters to you. Work is home It is a demand market. * we forget we are hiring a human being… not filling a seat. Bring an entire life into the company Rick’s Thoughts Stay away from “stinkin thinkin” - Transactional thought Judging people based on a piece of paper Restructuring the recruiting department to touch those who apply Solutions: By shifting the language we begin to shift the mindset. Changing the language - humanize What does it mean to be human at your company? Don’t talk headcount, filling a seat life count, heart count. Talk about finding the “right new colleague” Not filling a seat or role, rounding out our community Shift to human terms The breadth and depth of this person. Talk about the eulogy and not the resume Think of everyone in terms of a peer Values - The framework is in the questions, not the answers If the adage is that people leave managers, not companies, they probably refuse offers from managers as well. Foster a culture that supports the value for success. Are they Google-ly? And what happens when being googly becomes a weakness? Homogeneity can be a downfall. Rick's Plan Cut out words like “candidate”, Job Description, industry terms Key Take Away: Tune into your own Humanity Humanize the language Slow down the interview process to give more room & space

Game-Changer Chats: Tevis & Raj Sisodia, Conscious Capitalist/Author/ Professor
Very excited for tomorrow's Game-Changer Chat when I'll be sitting down with Raj Sisodia, Co-Founder of Conscious Capitalism. I think of Raj as "the man for whom business as usual was not enough", as he followed his inquietude with prevailing assumptions about business down the rabbit-hole of what is, and through it gave birth to a global movement called Conscious Capitalism. Beyond his sitting on the board of The Container Company, beyond his continued professorship, beyond his philanthropic endeavors, beyond the numerous books he's contributed to the consideration of the role and purpose of commerce in society, we'll dive into the seeds of his audacity to be true to his heart and dare to dream that capitalism can be good for the world.

C-Suite Sessions: In the Evening
Many are talking about how in sheltering at home, our days are melding into amorphous moments between waking working eating and hopefully sleeping. Confinement coupled with the glow of screens and intermingling of work and personal in every moment has our bodies and spirits confused, yearning for differentiation. Leveraging the ever changing light is a great practice to bring you back into the circadian reality of the dance of life.
