Hey guys, I have Hannah John's here. She is an awesome director of marketing at marketing 360 in mad wire leads. A team has led a team for quite a while, and I have her on today to talk about just some tips on how you can lead your team's and keep a positive mindset through these challenging time.

So welcome Hey thanks for having me absolutely so Hannah. What's, your tips on leading the team and keep it up positive yeah! I think you know the biggest thing to focus on is just everything good, that it's happening around us.

One thing that I really try and get my team to focus on is just how, now, more than ever, we're. Just a stronger community so focusing on how like everything is, bringing everyone closer together and we're all able to collaborate, support and be there for one another through all these challenging times.

Oh that's awesome. So how is your team responding so far? Obviously there's been a lot of curveballs for anybody in business. How you guys navigating it we're, navigating it. Well, I mean you know. I think it's.

A lot to take in it's, a lot to handle it's a lot to adjust to, but I think once you actually get into some sort of routine and you find the little you know, positivity things that make you happy. The little triggers that make you really positive and happy those things really help motivate you and get you through those tough times.

So I have my team focusing on like little joy triggers and things along those lines that make them focus on everything, good, that's in their life, so they can get through all the challenging times with those little things that bring them positivity.

That's awesome. So what are some ways that you're, doing that? Are you doing like team meetings or one-on-ones or emails, or what are some ideas that small businesses can take advantage of right now, as they're? Leading their teams that they can do maybe on a daily basis or weekly basis to keep keep the vibes going yeah.

I think communication is key, so I really try and reach out you'd, be an email. Zoom called really encourage everybody to be on video. So if you have a team of people who you don't see in person, I would highly recommend getting them on zoom video calls just to see their faces.

I think that the human element of like seeing somebody and looking them in the eyes is so important still, so we do a lot of you know collaborations on video a little handwritten cards to them too. So we have coffee dates together.

I sent them little gift cards for coffee and we have coffee dates together. Even though we're all remote, so it's still like we're together, but you know we're. We're, trying to make little things happen where we still feel like.

We're one big team, even though we're, all remotes, that's huge. How do you, how do you set the expectations with your team? Maybe when you bring a new team member in just to you know, welcome them to the culture, but also set the expectation of the type of attitude and everything that you want to have within the team.

Do you have any city any tips on that yeah? I think the biggest thing that I focus on is hard work and progress, and not perfection. So you, don't, have to come into this position and be perfect. You don't have to come into this and know everything all at once.

If you focus on the progress and getting better and focusing on, you know feeling forward and not necessarily just like making the same mistake over and over again that's. What's going to get you to that point where you're successful, so focusing on the little wins along the way and really just focusing on how can I get better? How can I fail forward? Oh, that's.

Great, how do you you're? Just making me think you know that's, a good expectation in the beginning, but then people are gonna fail. They are gonna have issues here and there, and then you're gonna have to be able to try to coach them and give them that feedback.

So what are some tips that you have to be able to have that open, candor? Essentially, but keep it in a positive way so that you have open honest communication and everything there's, no gray area there, but also it doesn't turn into a negative thing.

Any tips on that yeah. I use a lot of my personal examples when I'm coaching, because I've been through it, and so I want them to know that when they're going through those tough times, they're, not Alone somebody else & # 39; s has been through it.

Somebody else has experienced it. So, just talking to my personal experience or even the veterans on my team, just to remind them that they're, not alone, they're going through this with somebody else and that they have our support through that process.

I think that's, the biggest thing is just reminding them that we've all been there and we've. All we've all made mistakes and it doesn't matter. How many mistakes? You make it matters, how you respond to those mistakes and how you get better from that mistake.

Awesome! Well, I know from experience, you know it all. It all starts with the leader. You know the leaders, the leaders, positive and navigating through the challenging times in a positive way than the team generally will so great job on your part.

You know just coming from the core of within you: it's, radiating out and it's. A super positive. You know thing that's, actually pretty contagious within the team. So nice job. Thank you yeah. I you know at the end of the day I love leading, I love growing and inspiring and coaching people that's, my passion, so the more that I can do that the better and I just want everybody to you - know, find happiness and passion And everything that they do every single day, 100 % all right, and I really appreciate the tips today, Thanks yeah, of course, thanks for having me Hey guys, I have Hannah Johns here.
