126: Energize and Empower Your Team with John Eades
As managers, we’d do well to remember that we succeed when our people succeed. It’s not always easy to know how we need to adjust our behavior - by stepping in or getting out of the way - but when you get it right, your people can truly flourish and accomplish great things. Today’s guest is John Eades. John is the CEO of LearnLoft, Author of Building the Best, and host of the Follow My Lead Podcast. John and I talk about how to connect purpose to your work, no matter what industry or function you work in, how to support your team members through their role development by providing the right support style at the right times, how to get past your own fears so your teammates can really flourish and when to let go because you can’t make someone else succeed if they don’t want to. Members of The Modern Manager community get access to Learn Loft’s Leadership Styles quiz that will help you better understand your style and their Mastering the Mighty Skills toolkit so you can elevate your leadership.

Read the related blog article: Three Steps To Creating An Empowered Team Key Takeaways: * People persevere because of purpose, not pay. When you connect your team to a cause, you breathe life into them. * Look for creative ways to show your team the impact or results they are contributing to. When possible, make it about the customers not just the business. * Leadership is someone whose actions inspire, empower, and serve others. * One of the biggest mistakes managers make is thinking they can just hire great people and get out of the way. We all need somebody else to challenge us in order to go beyond what we think we're capable of. * There are four stages of development for an employee in a given role. It’s important to establish where each person is on their development journey so you can match their autonomy and responsibility with their readiness. * If you give too much autonomy or responsibility too soon, you risk the person failing or being overwhelmed. If you wait too long, you risk the person losing confidence or becoming bored. * What you tolerate, you encourage. If your people are struggling, consider how your actions or inactions are impacting their ability to succeed. * Managers need to detach themselves from the outcome. You can do everything to inspire and develop your team, but at the end of the day, they choose how much they want to try. * According to the 80-10-10 principle, about 10% of your workers will be low performers, 80% are in the middle, and 10% are top performers. Young managers tend to focus on the bottom 10%. Instead, invest in helping the middle 80% get to the top. KEEP UP WITH JOHN * Website: * Book: * Podcast: * LinkedIn:

083: SPECIAL SERIES: Immigration Hearings and Appeals - Appealing the Removal of Permanent Residents for Misrepresentation with Rekha McNutt
Misrepresentation is one of the most serious wrongdoings that the applicant for Permanent Residence in Canada can do. In other words you want to avoid misrepresentation at all cost throughout each stage of the immigration process. And let's call things by their proper name - lying is never a good idea whether you're lying in immigration or any other context. However, what if you never intended to misrepresent your case or did not even know that you have misrepresented something? This is just one of the issues that I have discussed with Rekha McNutt in today's episode of the Canadian Immigration Podcast where we touched on the various aspects of appealing the removal of PRs for misrepresentation. Rekha practices primarily in immigration law. She has extensive experience with temporary resident visas, express entry, federal skilled workers, Canadian experience class, Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program, family class sponsorships, refugee claims, pre-removal risk assessments, and in-Canada humanitarian and compassionate permanent residence applications. Rekha has focused much of her practice on Federal Court Judicial Review applications of various types of negative immigration-related decisions. Rekha had appeared before the Alberta Provincial Court and the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta. She has also appeared extensively before the Federal Court of Canada and Immigration Tribunals such as the Immigration Division, Refugee Protection Division, and the Immigration Appeal Division. Rekha is the past-Chair (2015-2016 & 2016-2017) of the Southern Alberta Branch of the Canadian Bar Association, Immigration Section. In this episode Rekha and I had an awesome and engaging conversation about misrepresentation and the consequences of such wrongdoings. It is surprising that there are so many ways how almost anyone can become a victim of their own carelessness, lack of understanding of the immigration processes or even reports filed by their close circle of friends or relatives. Rekha gave a full explanation of what misrepresentation really is and how serious and challenging the consequences may get if IRCC believes there was a misrep. Additionally, in this episode we discussed the following: * what is the misrepresentation; * examples of Innocent Misrepresentation; * misrepresentation on inadmissibility vs. misrepresentation on eligibility; * different ways IRCC finds out about cases of misrep; * fairness letter and Section 44 reports; * the process of removal of permanent residents for misrepresentation; * different ways to fight your case if Immigration Division issues a removal order.
