    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...

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. This question of whether leaders are born or made has been debated for decades. Leadership...

    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. Then there is a segment of those with a title who not only measure their success based on their short-term results, but also on their legacy of helping other people achieve their potential.  According to Gallup, 87% of millennials say professional growth and...

    Twenty years ago I looked out into the Atlantic Ocean on New Year's Day with fear in my heart and uncertainty in my life. I had been fired from a dot com company two weeks earlier with only two weeks of severance, no insurance for my two young children and only two months of savings in the bank. My wife and I had just invested every dollar we had and even took out a second mortgage on...

December 3, 2020 What is Sarriball? Out of all the managers in European football, few have had a more improbable, unexpected rise to the top than Maurizio Sarri. He never played at the professional level, he split his time between working as a banker and playing and managing an amateur side, but in 1999, he quit his day job and dedicated himself...

    Courtesy of Building The Best August 13, 2020 "Expectations are the seeds of resentment," a wise mentor once told me.  It's a lesson that's easy in concept but not in execution. An expectation is simply a belief that is future-focused that may or may not be realistic. Often we create unrealistic expectations about how something is going to play out, and when it doesn't happen exactly that way, our world feels like it is crashing down.   This is especially true...
