If you want a highly strategic team that executes swiftly, they require two things from you as a leader.

Think of communication coming down in the organization like a people being thrown in the water.  It starts with a small mark but as it ripples out the circle becomes bigger and bigger.  If you are not clear in your communication, that is like throwing a fistful of pebbles in the water.  It doesn’t take long at all for the circles to all of a sudden interrupt each other until you no longer see any individual pattern.  What this leads to is people 1-3 levels down being very confused as to what they are suppose to do, how it [...]

Five Questions To Help You Determine What Your Clients Truly Value.

What do others value about your company? What sets you apart?  In order to really “brand” your company you need to know what the values are that make others trust you and want to work with you.  Surprisingly it is rarely the “big” thing you market about.  Things like “we have trained over 200,000 leaders” doesn’t mean as much as “over 60% of all leaders we work with are promoted in the first year with us—which means we help build the bench strength you need.”  Here is your take action- check in with clients to see what they truly [...]

Knowledge is not the most important ingredient.  Shocker, I know!  Imagine you have two workers.  One has 15 years in the field and is a wealth of knowledge but is difficult and uncooperative to work with.  The other worker has less knowledge but is willing to find the sources of knowledge to get the answers you need and is good at applying critical thinking so she can challenge what she just learned to “test” its validity.  Which do you think you would lean on the most?  The ability to be good at critically thinking through situations and forecasting out [...]

Define Core Values

There is one line in this article that I love.  It is “when one breaks down, the other one inevitably will.”  If you want a strong organizational culture of high accountability, respect, and trust.  You have to have both sides of the equation.  Once one side goes down so does the other.  Have you ever worked in a company with a good culture but there is one department that is always off?  That is typically due to the leader having a bad personal culture.  On the flip side you can have a leader with a great personal culture and [...]
