00:21:45 Aliza Willner: Thanks Everyone!
00:22:33 Belma McCaffrey: What kind of leader do you want to be? Consider the QUALITIES
What do you need to do to step into this vision? Consider the habits and behaviors.
How do you want to achieve this? Consider accountability
00:57:19 Mariko Abe: @Ellen I too listed Brene Brown as a source of inspo!
00:57:37 Kelley Jabr: Knowing what you stand for is a big one!!
01:02:17 Loren Barrows: Need to jump to a meeting. Thanks and have a great day.
01:04:26 Kelley Jabr: Yeah, I was going to say knowing/recognizing your limits. Similar to setting boundaries.
01:08:20 Mariko Abe: So true! There’s so much pressure to always say “it’s good” and “I’m good”
01:08:42 Ellen Guthrie: Agreed, Mariko. You become more aware of your emotions, too, which is hard if you aren’t used to that .
01:08:47 Chris Jabr: I think of my values here – creativity & kindness
01:08:52 Chris Jabr: sorry, curiosity*
01:09:08 Mariko Abe: Empathy too, caring about others
01:10:59 Ellen Guthrie: I absolutely LOVE responding to the question, “How’s it going?” with something like,
01:11:14 Ellen Guthrie: “Today sucks,” or “not so great”
01:11:23 Chris Jabr: ^^^ heck yea
01:11:34 Mariko Abe: @Alex, omg, you spoke my mind re: cultural clash
01:11:35 Ellen Guthrie: …and then seeing their reaction 😳
01:11:43 Jennifer Janes: Yes, Ellen! I have to be better at being honest.
01:11:53 Mariko Abe: @Ellen definitely done that, the dead air is worth it haha.
01:12:23 Ellen Guthrie: Bosses should want to know this information! It will inform them more about your quality of work and what support they can offer you.
01:13:05 Chris Jabr: I have a phrase I kept saying to my overeager assistant in the past: “you are a person first and an employee second”
01:21:42 Alex WANG: The 1:1s is a great idea, I love doing that too
01:22:17 Ellen Guthrie: If your company uses Slack, you can integrate the app “donuts” for randomized, 1x1s for personal reasons.
01:22:25 Ellen Guthrie: meetings*
01:23:03 Alex WANG: Have to run, thanks everyone for sharing <3
01:23:32 Kayla Morton: Bye Alex! have a great rest of your day! 😀
01:26:16 Jennifer Janes: So true, Craig! Employees should come first. Customers second.
01:26:20 Ellen Guthrie: My favorite is when companies say “our customers are our North Star” but then also try to claim that “our employees are our foundation.”
01:26:29 Ellen Guthrie: Yes @jennifer!
01:27:25 Mariko Abe: Haha @ellen I literally read an article on retention telling companies to treat employees LIKE customers!
01:28:16 Aliza Willner: Companies definitely forget that their ‘clients’ can be both internal and external
01:28:21 Belma McCaffrey: What are you taking with you from the call today?
01:28:25 Belma McCaffrey: What do you want to put into action?
01:28:51 Kayla Morton: Side comment: It reminds me of when companies say that they value the differences of their employees ( different cultures, etc) and then they force a specific culture for all employees to follow.
01:29:10 Mariko Abe: @Kayla OFTEN.
01:29:37 Mariko Abe: @belma my current CEO is walking in his footsteps
01:30:14 Kayla Morton: Nooooo! Abandon ship!
01:30:27 Ellen Guthrie: @Kayla – nailed it
01:31:05 Mariko Abe: prioritising yourself real life analogy – put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping others
01:31:35 Jennifer Janes: Thanks everyone!
01:32:25 Ellen Guthrie: Craig got me really thinking about the word “accessibility.” It’s more important to be emotional accessible (meaning that you take care of yourself), rather than being physically accessible but not actually able to support anyone else.
01:33:10 Chris Jabr: ^ yea, being emotionally accessible is being more accessible overall
01:33:23 Craig Pais: Definitely agree with that
01:33:23 Kristin Chasky: Yes!!
01:33:58 Kayla Morton: Thank you everyone! Be encouraged !
