Martin Moore is the founder and CEO of Your CEO Mentor. He is a successful CEO who has already walked the path of leadership and is now sharing what he knows about leadership with others.  He is the “leader from down under,” and is also my guest this week on Let’s Fix Work.

In this episode, Martin and I talk about the five ways to kill your leadership career, the core skills needed to be an effective leader, as well as, the state of leadership today. So if you’re looking to improve your leadership skills and want to hear from a man who knows a thing or two about leadership (and has a killer Australian accent), sit back and enjoy this episode of Let’s Fix Work.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  1. Core leadership skills needed in the workforce today
  2. How to know if you’re ready for leadership
  3. Tips for delivering feedback or receiving feedback when a conflict arises
  4. How to avoid ambiguity as a career killer
  5. Being mindful and focused as a leader and the need to carve out time for mindfulness
  6. Martin writes that far too many leaders are working at the wrong level. He explains what this means
  7. Martin shares what Your CEO Mentor is and the programs it is bringing to leaders in 2019 and beyond
  8. Why resilience is so important to being a CEO and leader
  9. The importance of integrity and character
  10. Creating a company culture from the top down

“There are five basic skills for a leader. The first of those is communication, and when I say communication it’s not just talking, because all leaders can talk. It’s about listening and understanding the people that you’re talking to. And, you need to have the ability to get the most out of your people by having the leadership dialogue that brings out their best.” ~ Martin Moore, Founder and CEO, Your CEO Mentor

“Leadership drives culture and culture drives performance.”  ~ Martin Moore, Founder and CEO, Your CEO Mentor

    Thank you for this great intro. I visited www.ultimatesoftware.com/ as well as HR Workshops upcoming events; I wish I could sign up for one of the two California events. But unforunately, I won’t be able to attend. I also sent an invitation to Mr. Moore on LinkedIn. Thanks again for this great post.

    Love your podcast, Laurie and Martin sure knows his stuff about leadership. I applaud his efforts because it’s true, employees are great at what they do and then they’re thrown into leadership roles often with very little (or no) training.
    There’s one point I’d like to clarify: just practicing difficult conversations may not make a leader good at them. That’s like saying, “I’ve given critical feedback many times in my career so I’m really great at it.” Not necessarily true. There are some techniques that you’ll want to master in order to succeed having difficult conversations.
    One of them is having warmth & empathy for the other person. Always have them in private. Also, communicate that you want this person to succeed & that’s why you’re having the conversation. You can paraphrase their message as well–that gives them a feeling of validation.
    Keep with the great (fixing) work!
