    Nobody's Perfect - Trust Items for Leaders to Ponder
by Nan S. Russell and Tim Muma - Dec, 2012
Trust in the workplace needs to flow both ways, so it's important for management and true leaders to examine their own thoughts and actions. A 20-year veteran in management, as well as a workplace consultant, Nan Russell discusses some areas related to trust that leaders should consider to help ensure growth and sustainability. Nan also explains to Tim Muma how building and working with trust is the ultimate key...and it all s...
 
  Winning at Working: But, What Are You For?
by Nan S. Russell - Mar, 2016
Against. Against. Against. It seems that's the political model of late. What one party is for, the other is against. Even before an idea makes it to twitter or the blogosphere, opposing party pundits and candidates are railing against whatever approach is being considered. However, before smugness gets the better of us, I'd suggest we take a closer look. The against-it-resist-it road is alive and well in most workplaces, to...
 
  Winning at Working: Grow Thick Skin
by Nan S. Russell - Mar, 2016
There’s a line in the movie Gracie that I love. Gracie is a teenager in the 70s who is competing for a spot on the boy’s high school varsity soccer team. In one scene, dejected and on the verge of giving up, her mother, played by Elizabeth Shue, tells her, “If you want to limit yourself, that’s fine. But don’t let other people do it for you.” Most of us do an impressive job of impeding our own paths with our detrimental sel...
 
  Winning at Working: Lying on a Nail
by Nan S. Russell - Jan, 2016
Once there was a young woman who didn't like her job. Everyday when she came home from work, she told her husband how terrible her day had been, how tiring the work and how unreasonable her boss. "Leave that job," her husband told her. "Oh I will" she said. "But not yet. I have too many friends there for me to leave just yet." And so she complained until the days became years and her family grew to five. "Leave that job," h...
 
  Winning at Working: It Started with a Turkey
by Nan S. Russell - Nov, 2015
In the early days of a start-up company I once worked for, a plump turkey was a small thank you token given to employees around the holidays. The turkey-giving practice lasted maybe three years, until the growing size of the organization necessitated its change. While enhanced benefits emerged to replace that poultry gift, the missing turkey still appeared as a resentment issue years later in employee forums. Not long ago,...
 
  Winning at Working: Convenient Mistruths
by Nan S. Russell - Oct, 2015
The subject line of the email read: “We met at …” and the name of a conference where I’d recently spoken. Thinking it was from someone who attended my session, I opened it sooner versus later. “I never heard back from you,” she wrote, “I wanted to take you to lunch or drop by your office to explain my product more.” Since I live and work 2,000 miles from her, I knew she’d confused me with someone, or that we’d never met. I...
 
  Simple Solutions
by Nan S. Russell - Oct, 2015
On our first morning of vacation, we were pleased to find open tables when we arrived for breakfast at a popular and highly recommended cafe. With several people actively filling walk-up specialty coffee orders at the counter, it took several minutes to be acknowledged: "It'll be about five minutes for a table since the waitress needs to catch up," a person finally called out in our direction. Fifteen minutes later we were...
 
  25 Simple Trust Building Behaviors
by Nan S. Russell - Sep, 2015
We can use the same words but mean different things. When it comes to building trust at work that's often the case. However you define trust or use the word, stop thinking about trust per se, even though trust is a necessary ingredient to both engagement and innovation. A better way to look at trust is to look at the behaviors that enable engagement, innovation, great work, sustainable results, and exceptional work relation...
 
  Winning at Working: Getting Past the Hurdles
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2015
One of my work favorites is crossing items off my to-do list. At the end of the day, it feels great to know you’ve made progress, resolved a problem, dealt with a difficult challenge, or accomplished an objective. Unfortunately, too often we find ourselves without those feelings. Instead, frustration, bureaucracy, and unresponsiveness have thwarted our well-being. The person you’ve been waiting to get an answer from doesn’t...
 
  Winning at Working: Perpetuated Myths
by Nan S. Russell - Jun, 2015
Myths. Beliefs. Conventional wisdom. Even our own eyes get in our way. Consider what happened to Galileo. In 1589, he gathered the world's most learned professors to the Leaning Tower of Pisa for a demonstration to disprove a 2,000 year old physics principle of Aristotle's: the heavier an object is, the faster it will fall to earth. From the top of the tower, Galileo simultaneously dropped a ten pound and a one pound weig...
 
  10 Ways to Build Trust Remotely
by Nan S. Russell - Jun, 2015
"Office Workers Don't Trust Colleagues Who Work Remotely," read the headline from a recent survey(link is external). According to researchers the survey respondents believed remote workers were: • "Three times more likely than people in the office to miss deadlines, not follow through on commitments or mislead co-workers." • "Four times more likely to give a half-hearted effort, make changes without notice or not fight for...
