health, but more importantly, it sets an
example for others in the organization.
Carol Barnett, CEO of MMA's Leawood,
most creative events for 32 years!
Providing the foundation for your
Kan., office, has been an early riser her
entire life, starting work most days at 5
a.m. She admits to having a hard time
unplugging from work, but she says a
ritual helps her create some separation.
She makes a point to close her office
door and leave work behind. " I take that
break and do what I need to relax. "
Focus on culture
Vlk works to create a culture that reflects
the organization's values. " I think about
culture every day, " he says. " If we grow
our talent as passionately as we work to
grow our business, we'll be successful. "
He also strives to bring the team together
to accomplish goals in a way that is fun
and meaningful.
He calls this " followership, " a leadership
concept that focuses on active
participation in a team's success. For Vlk,
it's about being transparent, vulnerable
and compassionate. It also means understanding
people are human beings who
have lives outside of work.
Vlk said one of his biggest challenges
is to help people understand their work
is important, but to also provide grace to
be human and imperfect and encourage
each other to make mistakes and learn
from them. When colleagues come to
him in times of stress, Vlk works with
them to get back to balance, helping
them bring their best to work and to be
their best at home. This, he says, is what
MMA's culture is all about.
Find an " attitude buddy "
A common thread among our conversations
with these leaders was this: they
all have trusted confidants, colleagues or
advisors to whom they can turn for help
or advice. And more importantly, they
lean on the people in their circles.
