Many of you have been asking about how to achieve happiness within your organization, so I wanted to share some of my principles for great teamwork that I learned along the way. If you ever want to...

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?...

There are many things that leaders must have wisdom in to create a meaningful impact in the workplace.  Authenticity has proven to be a precious commodity, coaching unlocks others' potential, and communication allows meaningful connection with team members.  But among these many attributes, the value of being on mission and staying on the mission seems to be consistently overlooked.   The value of being on and staying on the mission is constantly overlooked by bad leaders. Part of it is...

It’s a lot easier for people to perform without assistance than having to assist in their performance. While most professionals have a decent sense of what skills they’re good at and which ones need work, most...

    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. In this spirit I want to...

They found that the #1 skill employees value from their managers is confidence. Most people know confidence is essential, but it’s fascinating to learn how important it is in today’s...

    The following post is from John Eades' "Building The Best" from July 30, 2021: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/you-want-successful-leader-know-its-going-hard-john-eades/?trk=eml-email_series_follow_newsletter_01-hero-1-title_link&midToken=AQGgWYn8AI_qww&fromEmail=fromEmail&ut=00KsGSbl269FU1 Doing hard things isn't easy.   Most people avoid challenging things altogether. Others choose to start, but when they figure out the difficulty of what's ahead of them, they decide to take the path of least resistance.  Take Mike, a former front-line manager in a manufacturing facility as an example. After seven years of honing his skills as an engineer in the plant, he applied for an...

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,...
