  • We need to go from transactional relationships to relationship building.
  • We have to know the other person and how they are feeling.
    • We have to move from ‘how are you doing’ which is translated into what are you doing

  • If you want a relationship to succeed and prosper you need Paul’s 3 A’s.
    • Attraction – this has to do with the positive energy you put out to the world
    • Attention – are you paying attention to your people
      • Training
      • Promotion
      • Engagement
    • Appreciation – Say Thank you!
      • Thank you for hanging in there
      • Thank you for achieving the goals
      • Etc.
  • Previous generations want this as well. They were just taught they couldn’t have it.
  • We need to get over the fact that the needs of the workforce have changed.
  • Psychological safety is important.
    • This is a safe place to tell the truth.
    • You need to be present where your employees are.
  • Leaders seem to think they are beyond reproach.
    • They fail to be authentic
  • For a future together we need to be willing to accept others’ shortcomings.
  • It’s essential for leaders to be storytellers.
    • They need to tell the Hero’s journey.
    • They need to talk about adversity and overcoming it
  • Paul’s book, Work Quake, talks about operational improvement that comes about with employee engagement.

Paul Glover’s Recharge Round

  1. What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Morning Gratitude. It sets your day up positively.
  2. If you had one do-over, what would it be? Paul would have had a ‘fool’ in his life sooner — He spent over 5 years in jail with over 2 of it with revenge on his mind before he realized he was the one that made the mistake. He now relies on a trusted advisor to help him with blind spots.
