Leadership Thought #209 – 15 Things Employers and Employees Can Do To Make Work More Enjoyable

By |September 4th, 2015|Business, Your Actions, Your Leadership Role, Your Relationships|1 Comment

As we approach another Labor Day it's actually depressing how many people dread going to work. I've ready many different statistics some saying as much as 90% of people are unhappy with their job. Since we spend a significant part of our adult life working, this means that most people will spend a good deal of time unhappy or uninspired in their career. I have a hard time getting my head wrapped around this issue. Why would either party to the relationship accept this reality? I guess that is why individuals change jobs so frequently these days. They are searching for something the data says they have little chance of ever finding.

Leadership Thought #478 – When Technology Tools Can Become A Liability

By |August 19th, 2015|Your Actions, Your Leadership Role, Your Relationships|0 Comments

I remember when cell phones were a bit of a novelty but then became a regular everyday tool. It was almost as if the world couldn’t have existed without them (but it did). Many technology tools have arrived since then and followed the same trajectory of becoming completely indispensable until something better came along. Now […]

Leadership Thought #477 – Eight Mistakes Leaders Make That Get Them In Trouble

By |July 17th, 2015|Business, Your Actions, Your Decisions, Your Leadership Role|1 Comment

As the saying goes, “sometimes we are our own worst enemy.”  I’ve seen many a good leader go down a “rat trap” of their own making.  Often this is done with the best of intentions, but the results usually have nothing to with the original intention behind them. The following eight leadership mistakes happen much more […]

Leadership Thought #476 – Five Traits That Separate The Best Leaders From The Pack

By |May 26th, 2015|Business, Your Actions, Your Leadership Role|0 Comments

Because of my line of my work I am fortunate to spend time with many successful people and study and research the topic even more.  One theme that runs through of my experience/research is that financial success (while important) is not the primary driver of an individual business leader’s success.  It is more of an […]

Memorial Day – What It Truly Means

By |May 21st, 2015|Miscellaneous, Personal, Uncategorized|2 Comments

As you raise your glass this weekend, please take a moment to reflect on what Monday truly means. There are currently several hundred thousand hundred troops stationed directly in harms way doing very dangerous often thankless work. We owe them and their predecessors a vast debt of gratitude.

Leadership Thought #475 – 3 Key Factors That Lead To Employee Success

By |May 15th, 2015|Business, Your Actions, Your Decisions, Your Leadership Role|2 Comments

The great thing about my job is that I can find inspiration everywhere, from all walks of life and fields of practice.  It is often cliché that leadership development professionals lean on sports and military examples (at least my male colleagues do), but there is a reason we do this, it works.  Recently, I was […]

Leadership Thought #474 – The Leadership Needed in Baltimore (And Elsewhere)

By |April 30th, 2015|Uncategorized, Your Actions, Your Leadership Role|0 Comments

Leadership is an interesting topic. We all seem to think we know what it is and can identify when it’s lacking, but often have different definitions of what it means. It gets even more challenging when you have different sides with competing agendas/world views clashing with one another. Recent events in Baltimore have put a […]

Leadership Thought #473 – The Disease of Half-Listening

By |April 15th, 2015|Business, Personal, Your Actions, Your Leadership Role, Your Relationships, Your Words|0 Comments

As part of my work, I am in a lot of meetings and conference calls.  It’s amazing and somewhat disheartening at times to see how the quality of these interactions can vary. There are moments where it feels like everyone is “dialed-in” and paying rapt attention, but these are few and far between. More often […]

Leadership Thought #472 – To Those Who Expect Much, Much Effort Is Required

By |March 24th, 2015|Personal, Uncategorized, Your Actions, Your Decisions, Your Leadership Role, Your Life|1 Comment

Recently I have been having a lot of conversations with my clients about work-life balance and the need for boundaries. I am always sympathetic to their need to live a more full life. I also try to remind them that they chose the path of a business entrepreneur and/or CEO.  By its nature this role […]
