The New Employee Experience Mandate | Denise Lee Yohn

Today on Live with Bottleneck, we discuss the direction of the employee experience, especially during the pandemic. So today, Denise Lee Yohn, a go-to-expert on brand leadership for national media outlets, an in-demand keynote speaker and consultant,  and as well as an influential writer, joins us to go deep on this topic.

Brands As A Passion

Denise briefly shares her personal and professional background. She discusses how, as a child, she has always been fascinated by the idea of a powerful brand and the intimate customer relationships this can form. Her curiosity for how these brands were created and experienced has led her to pursue this career path and more. 

“I’ve always been just kind of curious about how brands develop those kinds of relationships with customers. As a professional, I’ve learned how companies actually build brands, and how they cultivate organizational cultures that enable them to have great brands. ” – Denise Lee Yohn

Defining Culture

In this regard, Denise shares that the desired culture is developed through the cultivation of healthy, effective, and sustainable culture. She advises to establish a clear and intentional set image of the purpose and values of an organization, in order to effectively facilitate employees and their jobs well. In addition, she encourages utilizing the right amount of collaboration through the process of streamlining or Q&A’s.

“You have to make sure that you are clear about what your purpose and your values are. You have to make sure that everyone who works in or on your organization knows this. It has that clarity that I think is so important.” – Denise Lee Yohn

Working As If It’s Your Last

Jaime and Denise discuss how, especially now during a pandemic, individuals are doing tasks as if it was the last time one could do it. Denise advises that planning may be difficult at the moment, but one should not lose sight of the process. She shares how the mindset of imagining tasks as if it were the last promotes the organization to become more agile.

“Plans can change and be very disruptive, but if you have a clear process for how we’re going to do something, then your people can stay focused and they can adapt to whatever changes happen. They’re going to be like, ‘okay, we didn’t know this was going to happen but we have a process for that.'” – Denise Lee Yohn

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
