What Your Employee Needs and Can't Tell You with Melina Palmer
Show Notes

Whether you're leading a team of employees, freelancers, or even working with vendor partners understanding how the brain reacts to change will help you communicate better with everyone you interact with. This week’s episode 71 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about what your employee needs and can’t tell you!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Melina Palmer shares how every interaction we have falls in a line of change and actionable steps you can take right now to change the way you approach and react to change in order to better communicate with your team. Some of the things Melina and I cover in this episode are:

Help people to be more passionate about the work they are doing

  • Quickly highlighting her first book: What Your Customer Wants and Can’t Tell You
  • Breaking down the “it’s not about the cookie framework” as it applies to pricing and change management. 
  • What is quiet quitting and how you can look at your team culture and retain employees. 
  • How to approach tough conversations with your employees. 

When tackling these conversations always remember that change is all about you but it has nothing to do with you.
