Risha Grant: When your intent causes a negative impact, apologize
In a recent article for Tulsa World Risha Grant shares her opinions and thoughts on what to do when you offend someone.

In a complex world where we all are allowed to publicly express our thoughts and feelings, at some time on any given day we will make a mistake. We may say something that was intended to be positive, but it will affect someone negatively. For that reason alone, we need to give each other grace.

As an international keynote speaker, Risha is often in front of audiences of all types of make-ups and differences, her intent is to always share her perspective(s) to create a positive experience that would make those who are not marginalized see the a different side, and perhaps the error of their own ways. It's why she gets brought in, to bring in other perspectives.
 
However, the impacts created for segments of people we most want to give a voice to can sometimes have a negative experience for some people.
The verdict for this? It doesn’t matter what a person's intent was if their impact was negative.

Issues like this one are what can be difficult for a speaker in this sector of work, or genre. You have to be cognizant of every single thing you say, or risk people shutting down immediately, completely. As a person who has been working very hard to initiate open conversations and shift audience perspectives for many years, Risha Grant suggests we need to give each other grace. Ultimately, we are not allowing people to be human! We are flawed and imperfect, and as sure as you are reading this, you too will make a mistake. And that is OK!

It's what you do after that is the most impactful, admit your error and apologize for messing up. And keep learning....

Alan O'Neill: Five behaviors hold the key to high performance
From the creation of a safe environment to giving work meaning, team-building is all about the right balance....

The Holy Grail of organisational behavior is to understand the characteristics that make up a high-performing team. Since the study of modern management theory began, many concepts have come to the fore. One of the more popular and profound studies is by Dr. Meredith Belbin, who in 1969 defined the traits where team members have ‘a tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way’.

With almost 100,000 employees to select from, a dedicated research team and a truck load of dollars, Google embarked on a two-year study of 180 internal teams. Having initially defined how success is measured, they were curious to establish if there were meaningful patterns that stood out as being more successful than others. They called this massive endeavor Project Aristotle; a tribute to Aristotle’s quote "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" - the goal was to answer the question: “What makes a team effective at Google?”

With this as their mantra, here are the behavioral norms and key characteristics that the Google research team highlighted as being most prominent in the more successful teams.

  1. Psychological Safety. When a team leader creates a positive dynamic where everyone feels safe to speak up, then debate and decision-making improves. 
  2. Dependability. Once expectations are set and agreed at team and individual level, team members can be relied upon for taking ownership and getting things done on time.
  3. Structure and clarity. High-performing teams have clearly defined SMART goals and each member has a specific role to play in the team.
  4. Meaning. The work itself has personal significance to each member.
  5. Impact. The group believes that their collective work will make a positive impact on the wider organisation and possibly even, the greater good.
In summary, beyond the obvious need to select team members that can add value through experience, skills or qualifications, you also need to think about the interpersonal behaviors of members and how they will work together in that team. People are often thrown together for convenience or because their role determines their presence on a team. The Google research team could find no meaningful patterns in this approach that made a positive difference in the best performing teams. In other words, team membership did not imply team success. Instead they discovered that success was determined more by a set of behavioral norms that when lived daily, they ensure that team members give their best and achieve optimum results.

Whenever and wherever teams operate, the leader should take time out now and then - to reflect on the team dynamic and consider how the traits above can be embraced. The lessons from the Aristotle research highlight the need to give at least some consideration to team behaviors.

Kat Cressida-Taking a big step out from the shadows at TEDxUCLA
Kat Cressida recently spoke on the matter of "Time" at TEDx UCLA, and after her battle and journey through cancer and the years of her recovery, she's all too aware of time......Kat was shocked to see how much an impact her story had on the audience, saying, "I was genuinely stunned and not expecting that."
 

“I'm sure at the very least it feels good to be doing something with all that mess other than it being an anecdote," she adds of her subsequent speaking engagements and going public with her story. "Like it's actually going to turn into something of value to people who are going through whatever scariness or pain or grief or loss … it’s a good feeling to know that maybe it will."

Kat has now taken her story from behind the microphone to the stage, and has already begun working with the American Childhood Cancer Organization, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and there are more to come!

Alan O'Neill - Hell's Kitchen is poor recipe for talent retention
Hell’s Kitchen is not a good role model for successful talent retention.

In a case where art imitates life and life imitates art; these dreadful TV bosses are being seen as role models for an industry where teamwork is essential; but conflict between the kitchen and front-of-house is often the unfortunate norm. This behavior has been often excused because chefs are ‘artists’ or because they are in such short supply. ‘We don’t want to rock the boat, or they might leave’ said one General Manager.

We argue though; What if They Stay?

The ambitious individuals they are training that get seduced by an industry they love, and over time come to believe that this is the way to treat others, and to get promoted. After all, if the boss has become the boss by behaving like this, then that becomes the benchmark.

Stop.  

Stop and think for a minute the impact on the people, and the business, which inevitably loses out in missed opportunities. Human nature being what it is, those people on the receiving end will feel bruised, shocked, afraid to make choices. They will not or cannot be as productive as expected out of fear; innovation dissipates as team members become afraid to make mistakes. Morale dips and employee turnover increases as individuals seek solace elsewhere. And as for the impact on customer experience.... well customers are not blind. Or deaf.

Alan O'Neill shares his insights and tips for eradicating these poor management behaviors:

  1. Define & evaluate your culture
  2. Check that the values are being exemplified and "lived"
  3. Clearly articulate what IS NOT acceptable
  4. Communicate the value of what IS acceptable
  5. Call it out, and apply corrective behavior. No change-perhaps it's time to part ways?
  6. Hire people that share the same values

Alan O'Neill - When should a leader know it's time to go?
CEO's and business leaders can often stay too long, but how do you recognize it's the right time to walk away?

After years of trying to navigate her party, the government and the country through the Brexit fiasco, Theresa May’s time has come to an end. We know of the shenanigans behind the scenes but on the face of it, it seems to have been her own decision. The alternative would have been an embarrassing no-confidence motion to oust her.

She’s not the first leader to have faced that reality ; but how does a business leader know when the time is right to hang up their hat and to step down gracefully from the role of CEO? Today's and tomorrow's CEO's need to recognize when they’re at the peak of the ‘deliver and develop’ phase to prevent entering the ‘decline’ trough, so Alan proposes they plan for this before they start!

The Phases of Senior Leadership (CEO):

  • Discovery and Design - This is the initial phase where the newly appointed CEO takes time to get their feet under the table to learn the business.
  • Deliver and Develop - In this phase, the new CEO executes the new strategies and makes changes.
  • Decline - This is when the CEO no longer impacts the business in the same positive way as they did in earlier phases.
In some future time-frame, a leader will inevitably move on from their new role, but do any of them think ahead on what they would like the future history books to say about their tenure? Focusing on that in advance would guide a new leader through the years and ensure their desired legacy comes to pass.
If you stay too long and enter the ‘decline’ phase, you risk building a legacy that focuses only on that phase. What a shame that would be. However, with proper planning and open dialogue, you can build a positive legacy during the ‘delivery and develop’ phases. That has to be a more attractive proposition!

Calling all retailers - Alan O'Neill shares tips about competing effectively against Amazon!
Today there is a lot of talk about store closures and the death of bricks and mortar retailing. That is simply not true. There is however a decline in ‘poor retailing’. That is, where retailers have not moved with the times and embraced the new reality of giving great customer experiences in store. For example, in Alan's time at Selfridges, they talked about ‘edutainment’ and ‘intertainment’. In other words, they recognized that having great product on display – even when well merchandised – was not enough anymore. Instead, they created experiences around in-store events that would engage customers and continued with the iconic "window" retailing that British stores were famous for.

Today, a high percentage of shoppers are migrating to on-line method, but the vast majority still go in-store either before they buy (with a phone in their hand to compare prices etc) and they also go into store after buying on line, due to the growth in click-and-collect. Both of those present opportunities and challenges for bricks-and-mortar retailers to up their game in-store. And the sales associates role is therefore critical; they need to engage with customers in a non-pushy but delightful way.

Small retailers also have a unique opportunity to give great advice and add personality in a way that Amazon never will. We all agree that Amazon is a ferocious competitor; but while a typed narrative under a product works for Amazon, SMEs can add so much more passion, advice and character to the live interaction.

With all of this change going on, it’s comforting to know that some basic principles have NOT changed. The main drivers of sales in store are footfall, conversion and average spend. Alan has many stories that challenge all types of retailers to get back to basics of product mix (price architecture, category killers, ownership…) people (their selling skills and their behaviors) and place (the housekeeping and merchandising standards.. theater and use of the senses).

Throughout all of his presentations Alan offers offers hope, he challenges attendees to rise to the occasion, and shares stories of other SMEs that HAVE taken the best of what the big guys are doing and adapted them locally.

Who Moved Your Cheese: Alan O'Neill demonstrates how a motivational fable of mice and men can help your business better manage change.
Alan O'Neill's most recent article on the book "Who Moved My Cheese?, a book by Dr Spencer Johnson, who also co-wrote The One-Minute Manager with Kenneth Blanchard. Who Moved My Cheese" for Irish Independent demonstrates how a motivational fable of mice and men can help your business better manage change.

Alan's article is a well thought out and brief re-examination of a classic business book that summarizes the flaws and foibles of 4 main characters named Sniffy, Scurry, Hem, and Haw. His easily applied lessons are summarized in a quick and pointed format that readers (and audiences) can take away, with the ever-evolving question of "which character you relate to the most"?

The tale central to Who Moved My Cheese? goes like this:

Once upon a time there lived two mice named 'Sniffy' and 'Scurry', who shared their world with two small humans named 'Hem' and 'Haw'. Their world was a maze, full of complex twists and turns - and piles of cheese.

For the mice with uncomplicated brains, the cheese simply represented a way of satisfying their hunger. For Hem and Haw, the cheese represented all that humans desire such as health, wealth, relationships, career, position, material things, lifestyle or whatever they believed would make them happy.

One day, they all set out to find new cheese. Having found a big pile, Sniffy and Scurry in particular never took it for granted. They dashed out of their homes early each day and followed their instincts to sniff out the route and scurry to it without delay.

Hem and Haw, on the other hand, having discovered the same pile of cheese, soon settled into a routine. As the days rolled on, they woke up a little later each day and moved a bit more slowly. They developed new norms and habits, becoming quite comfortable and complacent. They never doubted that the cheese would be where it was the day before, assuming it would always be there.

One day when Sniffy and Scurry arrived, the cheese was all gone. They weren't surprised, as in previous days they had noticed the pile getting old, moldy and reducing in size. They reacted immediately, and went searching for more cheese.

Hem and Haw arrived later that morning and were shocked to find no cheese. They were furious, as all their plans were built around having an endless supply. But rather than go and search for new cheese, they continued to hem and haw and instead focused their energy on a useless quest to get to the bottom of 'who moved my cheese'. They wouldn't look elsewhere for new cheese as they were afraid of change.

They also had a sense of entitlement and developed a victim mentality which spiralled negatively downwards, causing them stress and ill-health. They started to work longer hours trying to figure out what happened. They were doing the same thing over and over, yet they expected a different result. Although it was difficult, Haw eventually came around and laughed at his own silliness. He tried to encourage Hem to join him in following the mice and searching for new cheese. But Hem was steadfast and his resistance held them both back at first.

When Haw realized this, he recognized that for his own welfare, he needed to break away from Hem and move on without him.

On this new journey, Haw encountered many obstacles along the way but built his confidence as he learned to overcome them. He realized that he could actually cope better than he expected. It wasn't that bad after all. At first he came across scraps of new cheese and then he found the most wonderful pile of new cheese, with Sniffy and Scruffy already enjoying it. He went back and managed to convince a very distraught Haw to join him.

As time went on and having learned a significant lesson, Haw checked the new pile of cheese every day. He knew that change was inevitable and coping with that was up to him alone.

THE LESSONS IN THIS TALE
  • Change happens, they keep moving the cheese! We're living in a world where the pace, volume and complexity of change is increasing exponentially and there's no going back to the way it once was.
  • Change can be tough but imagine what you could do if you weren't afraid of change?
  • When you stop being afraid, you start to feel good. Reach out and seek help in understanding why the cheese is moving and will continue to do so.
  • When you change what you believe you change what you do. Change readiness requires a positive mindset. Negativity and resistance is futile.
  • Smell the cheese often, monitor it so you'll know in good time when it's getting old and reducing in size. Anticipate change and get ready for the cheese to move.
  • When you imagine yourself enjoying the new cheese, it will lead you to it.
  • Adapt to change quickly. The quicker you let go of the old cheese the sooner you'll enjoy the new one. A prolonged post-mortem for what was good about the past will prevent you from embracing the new.
  • Enjoy change. Savor the adventure and enjoy the taste of the new cheese.
  • Even after embracing the new cheese, be ready for even more change. They will never stop moving the cheese.
The Last Word:

Just like Alan points out, each time you re-read this story of Hem and Haw , you'll spot something new. We also bet that as you read this, some of your friends or colleagues will come to mind. But stand back and consider which character you relate most to. Are you a Sniffy or Scurry that just gets on with a new reality of continuous change? Or are you more like Hem or Haw that chooses not to see the writing on the wall?

New Topic Description from Alan O'Neill
​"Get Ready for the New World of Retail"
Retail is changing rapidly and becoming even more complex. As an industry, it has probably seen more disruption than almost every other sector. The advancing perfect storm of ferocious on-line competition; changing customer expectations and the infiltration of digital into traditional stores - is a new dynamic. For traditional retailers, coping with that is an ongoing challenge.

From food to fashion, luxury to mass, big box to multiple site, and travel retail to the high street, Alan has supported many iconic retailers over 20 years. He will reveal to you the secrets of their success in a way that you can learn from and adapt for your business.

Three times winner of the award for being the best department store in the world… and one of the most profitable (per m²), Selfridges in particular is an amazing success story. Alan was the lead consultant that navigated Selfridges through significant change from ‘bricks only’ to ‘clicks and bricks’. Alan can share his insights and how he supported them to achieve their ambition.

And even if you’re not a retailer, it’s a sector that every business can relate to and learn from because of their sense of urgency, their focus on the customer and of course their commercial savvy.

It's our 3rd birthday and we couldn't be happier!

The quote that always resonates is "What if I fall?" And it's answering quote of "What if you fly?" and how we get stuck in all the "what ifs and if onlys" in life.

3 years ago we were presented with the opportunity to fly, and with the encouragement of family, friends, and a few special speaker peeps, we took off!

The journey has been amazing, and we think 2019 and 2020 are only going to get better!!

8 days until we get to hang out with the lovely @risha.grant!

The 2019 IASBTalks sessions are just one of the highlights of the biggest gathering of speakers bureau agents, and she's one of only 6 selected!

She'll be providing us with steps to identify, own and confront our own bias; by calling BS on the issues that stop us from building boss teams and attracting diverse markets.

What would the world be like if the great innovators never existed?

Imagine if Thomas Edison’s light bulb never glowed, or if Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone didn’t ring. If Charles Babbage, the inventor of the first computer went in a different direction, what would Steve Jobs have done?

But it’s not just technology that has benefited from innovation. We have also benefited from innovation in processes, systems, packaging, culture, business models, routes to market, and more.

How about innovating the customer experience? Alan O'Neill is an expert in this new battleground in the digital world.

You need to be examining your entire network and its influence on your life.

You’re not the average of the FIVE people you surround with. It’s way bigger than that. You’re the average of all the people who surround you. So take a look around and make sure you’re in the right surroundings. Don't let someone else drag you down or hold you back!

Mosaics. Gen Z. Post-Millennials.

It doesn't matter what name they go by, what does matter is that they're the most diverse, liberal, and distinctive cohort of teenagers and young 20 something's in US history. And they are reshaping society.

Paul Taylor's presentations help audiences understand who these young adults are, what makes them tick, and how they're different from previous generations.

It's like the Einstein quote about doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, or the good old quote about not being able to see the forest but for the trees; change your perspective.

Speakers travel and learn from others so much, when clients bring them into an event it's amazing the different perspectives and insights they can bring.

Your path to greatness isn’t about you mimicking the activities of other successful people so perfectly that you wind up automatically creating a magical future for yourself. It’s about being effective.

It’s really that simple. The concept at least, but having Dan in for the keynote version helps so much more.

With a great culture and an engaged workforce, you can take on the world. Others might copy your strategy – but no one can copy your culture. Culture is about mindset, attitudes and behaviors. It’s the software of the mind!

Alan O'Neill engages his audiences to learn where culture fits in to their big picture, what it is, why it's important, and how it's measured.

"I love reading spreadsheets and graphs, and analyzing it all day" said almost no one ever! Except analysts! Are you one?

Probably not, so how do you read data on how to market to the coming generations? What are their spending trends, political impacts, what do you do or who do you go to predict outcomes?
Mosaics have grown up in an online universe that results in data, and Paul Taylor helps identify and explain what the numbers mean and what's coming down the pipe; and what you can do to ride the wave!

New Speaker Alert!

Alan O'Neill - The Change Agent

With over 30 years of experience from the board room to the front line, Alan O’Neill - The Change Agent - has led & supported iconic brands to achieve amazing results.

Alan's topics and areas of expertise cover the following:

  • Dare to Change - How to overcome resistance to change and embrace it as a new norm.
  • Premium is the New Black - Excellence in Customer Service and Experience is the new battle-ground.
  • High-Performance Culture - Fast-track your business results with a customer-centric, high-performance culture.
Full topic Overviews here.........

About Alan O'Neill:
Alan O’Neill is an international business speaker & consultant, and non-exec board director working with blue-chip organisations across the spectrum of industry. In a dynamic world, he knows what it takes to drive change in a business – from top to bottom… and back to front. It’s about having a Customer-centric Culture, Engaged People, and a Supercharged Sales effort.

Change is all about people and culture and one sector in particular that has probably seen more disruption than any other is retail. Alan's expertise & involvement in the Selfridges story is one that resonates across all industries. Alan was the lead consultant that navigated Selfridges through the significant change of ‘bricks only’ to ‘clicks and bricks’. Up to 2004, Selfridges was a sleeping giant - but is now officially the best department store in the world… and one of the most profitable.

It is this unrivaled business acumen that has seen Alan chair and speak at conferences around the world and conduct master-classes with C-Level executives. He asks hard and uncomfortable questions, e.g. Should you refresh your culture to prepare for emerging global challenges? How will you overcome cynicism and resistance to change? How do you overcome complacency and lack of accountability? How will you differentiate with a customer-experience culture? How do you retain the best talent? How do you increase sales in a challenging and disruptive global market?

Alan will adapt his countless stories, business models and real-life case studies in his specialist topics…and with every engagement, Alan takes time to understand the brief, the objectives, the challenges… and builds empathy before meeting his audience.
Energetic, passionate and engaging… he will leave your audience with thoughts & ideas that are guaranteed to provoke, inspire and give hope.

Risha Grant took a lot of heat Wednesday on social media from the Black Enterprise Magazine article published from a question on her FB Post about what black people do that irritate white people.

She asked this question because she already understands as a black woman and D&I Professional what white people do that irritate black people. She wanted to have equal balance for a major client project she was working on and asked to see if her white friends would list anything she wasn’t aware of.

Risha goes on to mention "A lot of black people are asking “why should we care?” and saying that this is bad journalism. I say this with love for my people but last time I checked, good journalism was getting both sides of every story to accurately report the issue. My platform is about creating understanding & moving the needle in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. So...sorry, not sorry!"

On another note, Black Enterprise Writer, Lydia T. Blanco, wrote an awesome feature on her & how black women can build allies in the workplace. It also offers some context around the article.
