If you are like most people, you don’t often think about bad leaders unless you had or currently have one. However, studying or experiencing them can be a more effective teacher than learning from some great ones.   Take former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling as an example. His management and leadership style was built on the foundation of fear....

    The following is courtesy of Robert Glazer's Friday Forward post on June 18, 2021. When the history books chronicle the last two years, we will learn about many crucial decisions that were made. We’ll see how many lives were saved with heroic and bold actions, and how some were lost because of decisions scuttled by incorrect assumptions, politics, misinterpreted data or even just poor timing. As is often the case, these decisions will be evaluated with the benefit of hindsight,...

Your ONE COACHING THING today is: ‘Leadership’ If I am honest with you the term leadership drives me crazy. So over done and improperly used. Many look to the loud ongoing charismatic types for “Leadership” when in reality… the quiet reserved types like Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Charlie Munger, Mark Zuckerberg often create magic. Doesn’t matter is you like or hate...

    The following post is from John Eades at LearnLoft from June 8, 2021. Skill development is a never-ending process. Not only do the great ones in any field recognize this, but they have a borderline obsession to develop and improve their skills daily. Merriam Webster defines a skill as “the ability to use one’s knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance.” Skills are often divided into domain-general and domain-specific. For example, golf is a general skill; driving, putting,...

Student Affairs: Wilfrid Laurier University, a Keynote Speaker, Award-Winning Coach and Author from June 1, 2021.   3 ideas for excellence: 1) Raise expectations gradually As an educator, I decided to bring out the best in my team on the academic level. So, I set the GPA minimum at 2.25 as a requirement to make the team. As expected, I was met with grumblings, but sure enough, everyone met the standard. The...

    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...
