Creating an A-Player Culture to Win the War on Talent with Jerry Fons

Creating an A-Player Culture to Win the War on Talent with Jerry Fons

This week, we are joined by 7 Attributes Certified Coach, Jerry Fons, CEO of Executive Power Coaching and author of Gravitas Impact Monograph Building an A Player Culture. Jerry joins us from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to talk about how he helps CEOS get results and live their Purpose through business leadership.

With over 20 years of experience as a coach to CEO and C-Suite individuals within an organization, Jerry shares his BIG IDEA that CEOs live in a world of frustration daily, not understanding how to deal with the drama that happens inside their organization. In our most recent “Voice of the CEO” survey, the feelings of frustration, stress and being overwhelmed, were all too common in top leaders in growth companies. The root of these often stem from underperforming teams. In our podcast, Jerry addresses these issues head on, while sharing real world stories of success, hope and change.

In Part 2, Jerry recaps The Big Idea of the virtue of being a leader, you have to deal with people. The care, development and coaching of the people that surround a CEO, is vital for a high-performance culture that delivers results. Jerry’s Monograph is about understanding  tools and processes that will help create an organization that reduces the amount of drama and raises the level of what we call

A-Players in your organization. A-Players are those that are highly connecting to the core values of the company as well as highly productive, results driven individuals.

When Jerry entered the coaching business 20 years ago, he began the process of identifying his personal purpose with his coach.  Discovering his purpose did not happen overnight, but once he discovered it, he found that it still fits today

“Your Core Values Aren’t as Important as you think” with David Friedman

“Your Core Values Aren’t as Important as you think” with David Friedman

This week we are joined by David Friedman, CEO of Culture Wise, to talk about his second book, Culture by Design. David’s BIG IDEA is that core values are not as important as you think, and shares how he came up with an eight-step framework to purposely create the culture you want after having been a CEO for 27 years.

In part 1: David makes a big deal about the difference between core values and what he calls core behaviors. David explains that values, such as quality, integrity, loyalty, respect, service, innovation are concepts, whereas a behavior, in contrast, is an action. The most successfully business cultures in the world have learned the secret of activating their core behaviors into the culture…recruiting, hiring, recognition, meetings, and much more. Join David for some illustrative stories from the field on great cultures. Culture by Design is a how-to manual on defining behaviors that are most important to the CEO once the behavior is embedded in the culture, leading to the highest performance in your company.

In Part II: ” Learning from David’s Journey as a CEO: The ONE THING CEOs should consider”, David reflects on the pandemic and remote workforce, and the changes CEOs need to make to accommodate, and leverage this shift in their cultures.  As a result of the pandemic, David wrote the second edition to include content around a virtual workforce and how these concepts apply.

Stories in Building an A-Player Culture with Graham Mitchell

Stories in Building an A-Player Culture with Graham Mitchell

This week, join us again with Graham Mitchell, CEO of Grow Business Coaching, joins today from Johannesburg, South Africa, to talk about how CEOs have transformed their leadership style to build an A-player culture.

The fastest line of sight to accomplishing your company’s vision is to build a culture of top talent…talent that is living your core values and executing the priorities and goals of the business. Graham suggests to leaders listening in, that the first action is to get feedback. There are various leadership profiling tools that allow you to get feedback on your leadership style.  Getting the feedback will provide a clear picture of the leader and how the leader is showing up. That sets the baseline and the opportunity to learn and how to show up as a leader. Feedback looks different for different CEOs, but a business coach can identify areas within your leadership that you can work on or develop and use your coach to support you and coach you in developing your leadership abilities. Using the story of a client, Graham illustrates the principle of feedback, and the process of how it helps a CEO grow, develop, and thrive.
