Unlabeled Leadership

027: Robynne Orr Narrates the Value Effect

March 4, 2021

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 27, Robynne Orr explains how she became happier working with others by changing her expectations. She explains the value of expressing value, and Robynne shares some practical advice.

00:00 Prologue: A Narrative Passion

Robynne is more than an architect for Yale University. She is a voiceover talent. In 2020, Robynne narrated my book, What the Heck Is Leadership and Why Should I Care? If you listen to the audiobook, you’ll quickly realize Robynne’s passion for nonfiction narration becomes apparent.

01:32 Part 1: Revisiting Expectations of Others

Through a personal story about two friends, Robynne gains a life-changing insight into her expectations from others.

07:29 Part 2: The Behavioral Thread of Expressing Value

While there are many stories about toxic work environments, Robynne relates a story that is the opposite. Imagine working at an organization in which executives, managers, and peers express how they value others.

13:56 Part 3: Modeling the Values that We Appreciate

Robynne advises us to adopt behaviors that exemplify how we value the people that we work with.
