    Leadership

    Courtesy of Robert Glazer Friday Forward https://www.robertglazer.com/friday-forward/learning-delegation/ May 13, 2021 Recently, I spoke to a group of new managers at our company about the crucial lessons I’ve learned in my own leadership journey. At the top of the list was learning to delegate.  I still remember how, in the early years of the business, I was in charge of nearly every function and struggled to let go. It was exhausting.  I have seen this same theme crop up repeatedly at our company: virtually...

This communication is crucial to the success of any team or organization; but, only if it is performed appropriately. Barking orders, giving directives, inserting negative comments, and providing unempathetic feedback are also communication methods, but they won’t give you the same success rate.   Anyone is susceptible...

    Originally published on April 5, 2021 One work dynamic that has changed over the past few decades is that both employees and employers know they’re likely not in a forever relationship. The relationship between workers and companies has changed drastically, and it’s highly unlikely a person will spend all or most of their career at one organization.  Despite this widely understood fact, people on both sides don’t acknowledge this reality in the moment, and are often surprised when a...

    The following is from Robert Glazer from March 12, 2021. As you build an organization or team, you inevitably encounter both hits and misses. Good teams carefully analyze the patterns of these results to understand what may work in the future, and ensure they don’t repeat their mistakes.  In analyzing the outcomes our leaders at Acceleration Partners have seen over the years, one theme consistently comes up as a reliable predictor of success and longevity: good judgment.  People with good judgment consider the...

No one is born a leader, but people do develop into one. While some of the most outstanding leaders of all time were born with some leadership DNA, they still had to work to develop their skills over their journey.
