Where’s the Magic? I’ll Tell You…

When it comes to setting the temperature on your team, there is no magic pill. There is no easy button. There is no quick fix. Shaping the culture is a committed process. Moving the dial on your thermostats is a journey. And guess what? The reward is in the journey, too. Going through the process itself with the most important thermostats in your life and work is what creates the desired outcomes. The magic is... The post Where’s the Magic?

What to Do When the Game Changes

The sport of basketball is the same game that’s been around for well over 100 years. But how the game is played has changed. Ten years ago, there wasn’t a single team in the NBA that even attempted more than 30 three-point shots during a game. And now, just 10 years later, more than half the league averages nearly 42 three-point attempts per game. Wow. That’s one serious shift. This new approach means everything changed—from...

What’s on Your LP?: How to Mindfully Plan for the Life You Want

In the 1930s, many major record companies were exploring ways to create longer-playing records that could fit more music onto them. Company after company failed attempts to jam more music onto their records and sound quality plummeted. Finally, one studio, Columbia, figured out how to create a new LP that had a stronger foundation, purposeful design—and actually increased the sound quality. The LP was born and revolutionized the music industry! Many years later, entrepreneurs and... The post What’s on Your LP?: How to Mindfully Plan for the Life You Want appeared first on Jason Barger

Pull Positive to Recharge Your Culture

Someone recently explained to me how a battery works. On every battery there’s a positive and negative side. Energy gets transferred when the electrons are pulled from the negative over to the positive. The concept felt oddly familiar. I quickly realized: It mirrors every team and organization on the planet.  The thing is, there’s no such thing as a perfect culture, a perfect team or even a perfect individual. We can’t be 100 percent optimistic... The post Pull Positive to Recharge Your Culture appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Want Your Values to Stick? Try an ‘External Anchor’

Many of the important anchors you drop are internal, meant only for the development of the people in the trenches with you each day. But sometimes, it’s important to drop anchors that reach externally in the world and set the temperature with those you serve. Black Friday, the day that begins at midnight on Thanksgiving with millions of excited shoppers rushing retail locations for discounted items, has been growing rapidly. Last year Americans spent 1.7... The post Want Your Values to Stick? Try an ‘External Anchor’ appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

The Power of A Checklist: Turn Action into Habit

Many times the habits we think we are anchoring are not truly being anchored. The brilliant Atul Gawande in his book The Checklist Manifesto showed us all that we cannot assume that even the small “routine” actions are getting accomplished when we live in a quick, complex and uncertain world. His passionate and persuasive message about the power of checklists cites case after case where simple reminders about the steps in a process allowed successful...

Anyone’s Game: What March Madness Teaches Teams About Winning

  Who doesn’t love a solid underdog story? You know the one. The little-known nobody taking on the big, bad somebody. It just feels right to root for them, doesn’t it? That’s why March Madness is my favorite time of year. Every one of the 68 teams in the tournament has a shot. These teams have hope. They believe their one shining moment WILL happen. And it absolutely could. I like to think about the... The post Anyone’s Game: What March Madness Teaches Teams About Winning appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

More Than A Motto: How Jimmy John’s Fosters A ‘Freaky Fast’ Culture

“Let’s test them,” I said with excitement in my voice. “After all, they say they are freaky fast.” The challenge was on. I was standing at the creative business retreat center, sparkspace, and staring at their founder and my good friend Mark Henson. Our meeting was about to begin, but first things first: We needed something to eat. sparkspace kept a tally of delivery times from recent Jimmy John’s orders on its dry erase board. They...

‘Tidying Up’ Our Teams: Making Space to Move Forward

There are three times as many individual storage units in the U.S. as McDonald’s restaurants. We have a lot of physical stuff that we’re storing. That’s made even more apparent by the recent enthusiasm for “tidying up,” or taking stock of our things and disposing of items we no longer need, made popular by Japanese organizational consultant and author Marie Kondo. We also store plenty of digital stuff on thumb drives and in the cloud.... The post ‘Tidying Up’ Our Teams: Making Space to Move Forward appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Get Physical: Why Your Work Environment Matters

Mindfulness researcher Ellen Langer reminds us in her book Counterclockwise that “Our physical environment primes our feelings and behavior, although we are typically oblivious to its influence. Primes often tell us what is expected of us, and too often we mindlessly comply.” “Primes” is a term that comes from psychologists Anthony Greenwald and Mazarin Banaji, who use that word to refer to the cues that activate particular associations and influence in our behavior. All day... The post Get Physical: Why Your Work Environment Matters appeared first on Jason Barger. ...
