One of the biggest challenges for today's business owners and executives is managing their people strategy. When prioritizing the next generation of leaders in the year ahead, attracting, developing and retaining top talent is no easy feat.
 
Here are 5 emerging talent and team trends successful executives need to be aware of in 2019 and beyond:
 
1. Treating Leadership Preparedness Like Disaster Preparedness. Continuously empowering employees to develop support systems, adopt resilient behaviors and shift mindsets before the unexpected occurs will build resilient teams.
 
2.  Replace Ineffective Conscious bias Training with a Focus on Conscious Inclusion. Diverse teams acheive higher levels of innovation, stronger client relationships through a better understanding of client needs, and attracting and retaining top talent.
 
3. Throwing the Boomerang:  Investing in Departing High Potentials. A shift in mindset about exiting employees can generate positive returns. View former employees as brand champions, future clients, or boomerang employees that you could re-hire. Emphasis on positive exit interviews are key.
 
4.  Move From Being An Authentic Leader to Cultivating Authenticity in Your Team. Leaders and teams who thrive will create space for thoughtful, genuine conversations about issues impacting employees to happen safely and sensitively in the workplace.
 
5. Planning For Success All-The-Time, Year Around. Actively involving the entire leadership team to identify and develop prospective leaders will also ensure important decisions about succession and the future of the company are not made during an abrupt departure.
 
Over the next year, we will see these trends pave the way to improve business processes, management, and the bottom line. 

4 Steps To Help You Bounce Back

Failure is a part of life. We've all experienced a failure and will fail again, but how do we recover? How do we bounce back and get back in the game? 

Dr. Cathy Coullatt, Ph.D shares 4 steps to overcoming a devastating setback, summarized here:

1. Change your thinking from "How can I possbily deal with this?" to "I must deal with this." Learning to deal with setbacks, failures, and blows to your confidence will overcome them. It's a necessity.

2. Realize success and failure are on the same path. Successful people fail just as often if not more than their unsuccessful counterparts. Successful people never interpret failure as the last word on the subject.

3. Celebrate the effort not the result. To recover from failure, genuinely applaud your effort. You tried and you took a risk.

4. Isolate the failure to this specific situation and don't let it become global. People can tend to inflate their failure into something bigger, which can lead to generalizations such as "I can't ever get it right".

Check out this short video of Marie Forleo (TV Host, Philantrhopist, and Entrepreneur) interviewing Dr. Collautt on her insights on bouncing back from failure, even devastating failure.

Be Bold,

Black Clouds With Silver Linings!

If you ask people how they learn, many would say by reading, studying for an exam, or going to workshops. These are traditional ways in which education and learning take place. However, while these tools are good, they provide us with knowledge, but not wisdom.

Knowledge is that process of learning information that could be useful to you. It contains facts, statistics, and maybe ideas. However, wisdom is built out of life experiences. Experiences force us to apply what we know to problems, task, and goals. Wisdom is often more difficult to obtain and is born out of the challenges we face.

Challenges cause us to ask questions, learn new tools, rediscover existing knowledge, and then apply that knowledge to successfully create new solutions. Few people love to think about difficulties they face, but in fact we should be thankful for those challenges. No, I'm not suggesting that you are thankful for the difficult things that happen to you. Rather, I'm suggesting that life's challenges are black clouds with silver linings. It is in times of challenge that we're focused to stretch beyond our comfort zone, to search for new answers, and to create new ideas.

What challenges have you avoided because they are uncomfortable? Embracing a challenge while anticipating growth will change your attitude and cause you to watch for the silver linings along the way!
