If you’re not appearing, you’re disappearing… ~ Art Blakey, Legendary Jazz Musician In order for you to increase your chances of success, people need to know about you and what you have to offer. They need to meet you, see you… hear from you. If you want people to talk about the remarkable things you […]
This week, I would like to take the opportunity to ask for your help. I always love the lively discussions and insightful questions that emerge from the different leadership challenges we cover, but this week I would especially appreciate your insights and opinions. When I was working in the corporate world, I was always searching […]
Knowledge and experience are gifts. Have you ever stopped to think about what you have been given and how you can make the best use of it? We acquire knowledge and experience on a daily basis as we go through life, but I have met very few people (and I have a very large network […]
This week, I am going to ask you to really think about Courage – it is an important concept that seems to be falling by the wayside. Aristotle referred to courage as the first virtue because it makes all of the other virtues possible. Aside being the most important human virtue, it is also the […]
Recently I was at the World Business Forum. As I listened to what some of the world’s top business leaders considered our most significant leadership challenges, one sentiment stood out for me above all others – Jack Welch made the statement that, “the rhythm of business hasn’t changed in 40 years.” That’s profound… and true. […]
This week, after challenging a client to take a different perspective on organizational change, I was reflecting on a commentary I heard from Gary Hamel on how Leadership has not fundamentally changed in over 100 years. In short, he is absolutely right. We may move things around, make them look a little different, or phrase […]
I think, as business leaders, we often have a Superman complex. We rarely seek advice because we believe we should be able to do everything, know everything, and be everything to everyone at all times. I, too, suffer from this illusion more often than not. Despite this, I have found that to truly harness success, we really […]
Over the past several weeks, I have communicated to you what I believe are some of the most challenging aspects of leadership today. These are the facets of business, that because we do not do them well, we repeatedly see decreased motivation and loyalty, less than competent leaders and, ultimately, poor business results. I began […]
Innovation is the catalyst to growth. Innovation means doing something different, smarter or better that will make a positive difference. Innovation applies to every aspect of your business – you can be innovative with products, services, methods or business processes. Innovation is free and unlimited – if you actively tap into it as a leader. Click […]
As a leader in a global environment, it is essential for you to set the example and create communities where people unite around a common purpose and values. Working collaboratively to accomplish a shared vision that makes a powerful and positive impact on the global business is absolutely vital to your success! Can true collaboration occur in […]
GLABB – a term that defines who I am professionally to a large extent. If you have followed my posts on this topic so far, you know where I stand on the term Global… as well as Leadership. Today, let’s talk about what it means to work Across Boundaries…. because the reality is that it […]
Globalization and rapidly changing technology continue to sweep the world. All organizations work across boundaries and borders of one type or another and face significant challenges as they seek to reach and maintain market leadership. Inherent in those challenges are often unrealized opportunities. One such opportunity, teams, offer a wealth of leverage to the discerning […]
Becoming a great leader is more than just a title – it is hard work. It requires unprecedented levels of innovation and a commitment to the organization and its constituents, as well as the ability to continually inspire and motivate others to succeed. One key way to achieve ongoing innovation and sustainable results is through […]
We go to business school to learn all the right skills, but are we actually taught the right skills? Are young people coming to us from University adequately equipped to work in our world? Of course we all need to know the fundamentals of basic business management, but what about those critical, but less obvious, competencies that leaders […]
Innovation. Integration. Motivation. Three simple words… however, implementation is extremely complex and rarely executed. In today’s challenging environment, leadership has never been more complex. As leaders, we are the Commanders of our troops and have a responsibility to ensure we are consistently pushing forward to ensure victory. While the obvious route is to cut […]
In today’s demanding business environment (cost pressures, flatter organizations, more direct reports, “speed to market” as a competitive advantage, etc.) you have limited opportunity to devote time and energy to your own development. Most leaders struggle to meet all of the responsibilities of their positions and are too busy and too stressed to step back […]
