Leaders have to be masters of communication.

There is this great episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry David talks about who you should put in the middle of a dining table during a conversation.

Now imagine a table with twenty people. This type of person should be able to keep the conversation going no matter what.

As a leader, this is a skill that you need to master.

You have to master communicating with all types of people on different kinds of platforms.

How we attract and retain talent is wrong.

Traditionally, we convince people to work for us by telling stories about our organization and our employee engagement programs.

But the problem is, we treat employee engagement like adrenaline shots. We try to distract employees from what it's actually like to work at our organizations by giving them perks and shiny things we keep throwing in their faces.

Now, there are a few organizations that have figured out how to attract and retain the best talent.

Should you focus on profits or people?

The truth is that these two are not mutually exclusive. To get to profits, you need to start by focusing on your people.

Think about where your profits come from.

Profits come from your employees who are building relationships with customers and selling more products.

So remember that people and profits are not two opposing forces that are meant to battle each other.

They are almost one and the same to get to higher growth.

Invest in your people and their experience because they are the ones who will go above and beyond to create opportunities.

Who you surround yourself with matters.

If you surround yourself with negative people, you will adopt that mindset and become a negative person.

If you surround yourself with positive people, they can push you to be the best version of yourself.

So you need to ask yourself three basic questions to get a sense of who you’re surrounded with:

Does this person help make you a better version of yourself?

Does this person build you up? Or does this person tear you down?

Does this person help you see things from a different perspective? Or does this person just help you see things from a negative perspective?

What makes leaders successful in life and in business?

They always do 10% more of what is asked.

They don’t just deliver what is expected.

They exceed the expectations.

So if you want to succeed faster, go above and beyond what is expected of you.

But everyone wants to be recognized and appreciated.

Wendy Smith received her Ph.D. from Harvard Business School and is now a Professor of Leadership at the University of Delaware's Lerner College of Business and Economics, as well as the co-founder of the Women's Leadership Initiative. She is interested in how leaders and organizations deal with continuing strategic contradictions such as those between today and tomorrow, global integration and local adaptation, social mission, and financial performance.

What are Wendy’s thoughts on “either/or” and “both/and” thinking? What does it mean for leaders to embrace paradoxes? Listen in as Wendy, and I discuss attitude shifts, leadership insights, and why paradoxes exist to help leaders be better leaders!
