The combination of the "great resignation" and a two-year run of an employee-driven market has caused many leaders to have an easy-going mentality. While it's essential to care profoundly and treat people with dignity and respect, lowering the standard required for success will hurt everyone involved.   Take Gabrielle, a sales manager, at...

Success as a leader is never achieved through your efforts alone.   Too often, managers promoted because of their previous achievements as individual contributors forget this critical lesson.  One of the ways a leader separates themselves from being a manager is by coaching their people.

Unfortunately, most professionals don't show up to a big meeting or make a significant decision with their preparation optimized. At best, you get people who rely solely on their previous experience.

Do you remember how it felt the last time you or your team achieved something meaningful? Whether you received an award on stage or it showed up in the bank account, chances are, you felt pride and a natural high.   While those feelings are wonderful, have you ever stopped to think about the key ingredients that helped you get there?...

    The following is from Leadership expert Jon Gordon and his Monday August 23, 2021 post in his weekly newsletter. When many first hear the term "positive leadership" they assume that I'm just talking about a nice ideal way to lead that sounds great in theory but doesn't address reality. I assure you this couldn't be further from the truth. Positive leadership is not Pollyanna, impractical or theoretical. Positive leadership is powerful, real and practical.

    Courtesy of Building The Best December 23, 2020 Developing people is an art and a skill that’s essential in leadership. However, thousands of professionals worldwide have leadership titles but do very little to help others grow.
