Interim leadership is gaining acceptance across the business world. These individuals offer a unique competitive edge, especially during times of market turbulence and transformation. An interim leader’s ability to navigate through challenging waters and drive change can significantly impact the business’s growth trajectory.

They are well-equipped to handle geopolitical uncertainties and revise supply chains for better efficiency, cost optimization, and improved cash flow.

Walk the Talk = Leadership Style

There is a philosophy about the sergeant kick-ass leadership style of management. It goes like this: don’t question me, do as I say, you are grateful to have a job, while peering over your shoulder, hard and relentless – you know who I mean.

That attitude only lasts for so long and people get tired of the humdrum and nagging, so they quit. What you have in the interim is a tired, beleaguered workforce that does not like their manager. Therefore, they do not like their jobs and for them, work is about punching in and out to earn a paycheck. They handle co-workers like the manager treats them, and the customers are treated even worse.

For Christmas, my parents sent me a Chick-Fil-A gift card, not on my normal routine, but there is one in Pasadena. It is always busy with a drive-through line winding down the street. I did the unthinkable during those cold, COVID winters in Southern California: I got out of my car and went inside…

My expectation was to enter a busy maelstrom only to be greeted by a disheartened worker who wanted more than anything to get his fifteen-minute break and get away from sergeant kick-ass. While it was busy inside, the real traffic was in the drive through.

The first person who greeted me in front of the counter was the manager. He flashed a smile bigger than that of Magic Johnson as he asked, “How are you?”

Was this a joke? Where was the roaring confusion and yelling along with the sad people who hate their jobs? Why was this nice gentleman with a southern accent taking my order with a pleasant demeaner, disrupting my fast-food stereotype?

I thought I would trick him and send him back behind the counter. “I’m having a stressful day, and I’m too hungry to wait in the drive through…so I need a chicken salad.”

“Give me one minute,” he replied.

He quietly asked the worker behind him for a chicken salad; and in almost twenty seconds, there was a vibrant green, chicken salad. Was this salad pre-made for people like me on the go. What was going on? I knew this could not be possible since fast food restaurants do not have green salads. Taken aback, I ordered a chocolate shake.

The manager said this would take a few minutes as he had to have one prepared for me. While waiting, I had to ask about his accent, and he told me he was originally from Texas. Then I asked him if he ever had Blue Bell ice cream. He said that he loved and missed it, and from time to time would have a container shipped to the store for the employees to enjoy.

This was not the sergeant kick-ass philosophy at work; in fact, it was the direct opposite. It was the positive, lead by example, greet the customer with a smile, do business in front of a desk, ask politely for something and have the team prepare it, then reward the group leadership style. During stressful times, this is a lost art form.

Which one do you think works best?

Too Fast Too Soon

Mentally Leaving the Pandemic

There have been five hundred and fifty thousand deaths from COVID-19 in the United States and 2.81 million worldwide, according to the (New York Times March 31, 2021). When we address the issues, let us remember that it is global disease and the measures taken by governments in many countries have largely been to prevent more deaths.

There is a mental fatigue from the pandemic, affecting overall health.  It is from staying indoors and not seeing friends or family no matter where you live or what country you are in.  There is also the loss of work and income, and the impact on long-term financial stability while trying to pay one’s current bills.

We should also remember that the younger generation facing social issues and the difficulty of hanging out with friends. Now we have family or at home schooling. To be at home with one’s parents and siblings must be frustrating at times, and our youth, like some adults, are not able to hold part-time jobs.

What do we do?

COVID-19 has not gone anywhere. If we compare this pandemic to the Spanish Flu from 1918 – 1920, we see that the number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States (from CDC.org). We understand the gravity of the pandemic, but can we afford mentally, physically, and financially to remain in the pandemic mindset?

If we look at the recent Spring Break in Miami, it’s been hard for young people. The parties, the drinking, and the having fun are things we all miss. Yes, there is also the destruction, fights, and recklessness that we cannot condone nor can we overlook the transmission of the virus it may have caused.  YouTube Video Should we have totally canceled Spring Break and closed our bars and restaurants?

Let’s go back to the debate on mental health and leaving the pandemic. There is a physical leaving and a mental staying in place.  Traveling, vacations, getting out with people and going to our usual places help maintain our mental health. It is also about the planning and the anticipation. If we take that away, then mentally we lock ourselves indoors.

As we ponder the situation in America, we are seeing a rise in COVID Cases. Some European countries are already looking at their fourth wave and we are seeing the lockdowns begin. Let’s not forget the direct impact of the disease – the rampant death – but also what has been done to us on global level both mentally and physically.

Why a Recent Grad Could Be Your Best Candidate

In our line of work, we have found so many great candidates with so much potential yet many positions out there require some experience for certain jobs, this is especially true in healthcare. When considering your next hire, consider hiring a recent college graduate, it could be just the right decision for your company.

Below are a few  reasons why:

1. Training- Teach and mold as you see fit for your company
A major advantage of hiring a recent college grad is that you may very well be the first to train them professionally. They may have had internships in college but as an employer you will be the first to  actually implement processes and policies in the workplace. They  will soak up all they have to learn in respects to  your systems, how your company does things, and what works for you. Hiring a new grad is a great opportunity to mold positive habits rather than trying to undue bad habits, this is  a huge advantage.

2. Ready, willing and able
At ultraHealth we are always are looking for fresh new ideas, new skills, and new perspectives to our team. We have been able to implement this with our college interns. Our hopes are to assist them in their job search after college while gaining meaningful experience. But for the graduates ready to work, they want to prove themselves as assets and contributors to the company’s overall mission and values. For employers,  this is a great chance to hire that up-and-comer who is  motivated and talented and ready  to make an impact to your company.

3. Emphasis on diversity and culture
From many of my previous articles and interviews, a common theme has been culture and improving overall or maintaining positive culture. Hiring young talent could be great PR for the company. Young people want to love where they work. Through word of mouth, it is culture that will drive young people to  want your  workplace to become “the place” that job seekers want to go to for innovation and ideas that embraces diversity. Hiring recent grads is where this pays off, they will share their satisfaction online, and various social media platforms that may attract other great talent to want to work at your company.

4. Technologically savvy
With a younger work force, you will rarely ever have to worry about technology learning curves.  With recent college grads, they’ve grown up around technology – and it will make it that much easier to become familiar with company . This will save the employer so much time on training and will allow the recent grads time to focus on working hard and establishing their place in the company.

5. Motivating your current staff

Sometimes complacency is a problem at work, this can be especially concerning when innovation and growth is such a big part of the company mission and culture. Hiring a rising young star, that  is a go-getter with confidence could help in  motivating current complacent employees. There is always the risk of creating division between the top performers who have been there for quite some time and the eager newcomers, still, both should be encouraged, because those eager newcomers can very well turn into your top superstars as well.

At ultraHealth Agency we have 3 great interns; Cynthia Aparicio, Collette Ussery, and Aubree Ouellette. They have been with us for a few months now and have brought so much life to our company and fresh ideas to help grow our company. We decided to hire interns for all the reasons mentioned above, but more than anything we want to encourage them to keep reaching for their goals and aspirations and if we can assist in anyway, we are here to do so. Check out our college corner to learn more about these amazing women. They are ready to work and already have impressive accomplishments under the belts. Check them out, you’d be lucky just as we have been to hire them to be a part of your team!
