How a sense of purpose makes everyone happier.July 24, 2015 / Podcast # 15-15
Scott Mautz, author of Make it Matter, the new book published by AMACOM, wants your employees to feel like they matter when they go to work. Some of that has to come from within but managers can also help guide employees to a sense of meaning in their work. Employees who feel taken care of and are assured that their time isn’t being wasted will be happier and do more meaningful work.
Getting the competitive advantage from the people you already have.July 10, 2015 / Podcast # 15-14

Scott Edinger, coauthor of The Hidden Leader, published by AMACOM, understands the impulse but wants you to remember that there’s plenty of leadership power that doesn’t just come from a title. It’s your go-to people, the mid-level managers and individual contributors who are ready to be tapped. So before you look to outside sources for solutions, remember to look at the resources you already have.
