Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

What is the secret? What do leaders who are highly-skilled at delivering results and building positive relationships do that is different?

To find the answer, we analyzed our expansive database and discovered six "behavioral bridges" that differentiated these leaders. (A behavioral bridge is a capability that enables leaders to achieve both results and positive relationships.)

The frustration for many leaders is that an emphasis on one of these capabilites may negatively impact the other. For example: when leaders push too hard to deliver superior results, it can negatively impact their relationships with team members. Other leaders attempt to build a positive team environment, only to find that projects lag behind schedule and results suffer. These "behavior bridges" are the secret to skills that accomplish both outcomes.

Join Dr. Joe Folkman as he shares his exciting research findings and reveals these powerful behavioral bridges!

A great deal of attention has been given to helping managers acquire better coaching skills. Organizations have earnestly sought to create a feedback-rich, coaching culture. However, are we forgetting or ignoring an important element of success in this endeavor?

The success of coaching hinges on the behavior of two people—not just one. Our research clearly shows that leaders who are resistant to, or uncomfortable with being coached are less likely to succeed. The quality of being coachable seems extremely important early in one’s career. This webinar will answer the questions:

  • What can and should be done for those who are the recipients of coaching?
  • What behaviors can be easily identified and practiced by virtually every leader to enhance their coachability?

Join Jack and Joe and special guest Kevin Wilde, Executive Leadership Fellow, Carlson School of Management, as they reveal the exciting findings of this recent study!
