We all want our teams to be successful and consistent. We want them to win. But we know that a team is only as good as the players in it, and whether they can operate as a cohesive unit, not just be great individual players. Supervisors, however, often hire too fast and they don't

One of the many challenges that business owners have, that companies have, that supervisors and managers have, is how do we encourage our front-liners facing problems, disagreements, ugly situations with clients, with each other, with another department, stay and remain incredibly positive throughout the day. Then, secondarily, how do you help them be excellent at what they do? If you can take care of those two things, I mean, companies grow and flourish. Why? Because everyone's being positive and everyone's being good at what they're supposed to do. The movie Life Is Beautiful, brings that out. That's what we're going to title this segment An Excellent Outlook.

Well, you know how difficult it is when you don't agree with the decisions that are being made and your team starts complaining and you agree with them, but you know you shouldn't complain, what do you do with this? How do you handle this? In the movie, Saving Private Ryan, the Tom Hanks character shows us how to deal with the pressure of complaining or not complaining, how to address the complaining, how to teach your team members how to complain, and then, where do I complain? Saving Private Ryan brings this out really well. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas, happy New Year, happy holidays. And I'm not even gonna try to say it in Hawaiian. This one is going to be National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and what we're gonna talk about is managing expectations. The movie does a fantastic job at showing the importance of managing expectations and creating employee morale. The Chevy Chase character, he's been getting bonuses for a long time. All of a sudden, the bonuses are not there. Nobody told him, nobody told anybody, and this is where managers and owners start defending themselves as to,

Regarding Chernobyl, I think it's reasonable to ask yourselves,

Happy Halloween.  The film that we're gonna talk about is Silence of the Lambs. We're gonna focus on a special relationship that exists between Crawford, the FBI director, and Clarice and how they work together. The relationship that they built is one that we'll refer to as the mentor and the mentee. The FBI director, played by Scott Glenn, he's the mentor, Clarice is the mentee. The leader, the one who knows how to do it, is going to show the person how to do the project by going through the process together. We'll cover the responsibilities of the person doing the mentoring, and we'll cover the responsibilities of the person being mentored. They'll both have to work together for it to be successful.

Every business owner, every executive team has the challenge of when do we, and how do we transfer more leadership to our COO, or to our Director of Operations, or to our management team, and let them be the ones that over, and how do we make that transition well when we know we're going to get pushback? The Godfather handled this really well in a very famous scene, and that's what we're going to title this segment, Transfer of Leadership.

We're constantly facing the challenge of how do we motivate our teams to excellence, how do we help our frontliners, our groups, our departments become high performing teams. How do we increase morale? How do we increase the excellence of their output? That's what we're all in business for, and yet it gets away from us.Bridge On The River Kwai, it brings that out really well. The character of Colonel Nichols, he makes the emphasis that if you want the teams to perform, and even in the midst of a hostile environment, you have to let the team leaders run things. You can't just get up and think that because you're the owner that you can just simply hurl orders and people are just going to respond because you're the boss. And that's why we have titled this segment The Leadership That Creates Excellence. Enjoy!

We are just lousy presenters. We get up and we immediately start killing our ideas by saying something like,

It happens quite a bit in companies. Within the leadership team at the top, there's an unalignment and somehow, they bring in the director of operations. A manager who's not even in the chain of command up at the top. Somehow they get brought into the middle and I'm having to clean up this fight or get these folks to get along. But you may think, β€œWait a minute! Why am I being brought into this?” Well, sometimes that is your role. If you don't know how to stay in the middle and be that conflict manager between leaders, then things are going to fall apart around you and you're going to be brought down with it all. So in the Irishman, this comes out really well. How the Robert DeNiro character was put right in the middle between two bosses. The Robert DeNiro character tried his best. He did some things that are really well. He messed up in some other things. We're going to dissect as to how to do it, how not to do it. That's why we're going to call this segment, The Manager in the Middle.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody.  There's not a whole lot of movies that deal with Thanksgiving. This is one of the best. It's one of the classics. It's Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. It's a hilarious comedy with two of my favorite actors, John Candy and Steve Martin. If you haven't seen it, heads up, we might have some spoilers here. All right, so the movie's about two guys trying to get home. In it, they learn how to work with one another, but it comes through an incredible amount of hardships, problems, disagreements, fights. But, ultimately, they learn to do the one thing that most people don't learn to do in the work life, and that is become self-aware. And that only comes through disagreement, and that's what the movie brings out really well. It has to be the absolute single most difficult thing that all of us have to do, whether it's professional life, or personal life. Becoming self-aware is you knowing enough about yourself, of your strengths, and about our weaknesses. And those are the things that we deny all the time. Enjoy!

So, there's two basic categories. You have the introverts, and then you have the extroverts. Between them, there's a big disagreement. The extroverts are the ones that like to talk fast. Introverts are the ones that like to talk a little more methodical. There's a movie that brings it out very well, and that's Fargo. Throughout the movie, you see different conversations and different relationships interacting with each other that really brings out the whole element of how extroverts and introverts communicate well together. A lot of the comedy in this movie comes from the miscommunication and the conflict between the extroverts and the introverts. The writers use this whole personality dynamic to highlight this very common awkwardness we all face in life and in the workplace.
