Erasing Institutional Bias: Structural Change, Starting with You
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tiffany Jana & Ashley Diaz Mejias
“In our work with organizations, we have found that erasing institutional bias is a difficult task. When bias is operating at a systems level, it can seem impossible to change. But with humility, patience, and some tools, change is possible.”
Defy Ordinary, Exploit Imperfection, and Captivate your Customers
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Stan Phelps & David Rendall
“As we look at what successful companies are doing, it’s natural to emulate them. This has even been institutionalized in the process of benchmarking. … The problem is that when everyone in an industry starts copying the leaders, then, over time, the entire industry starts to look the same, feel the same, and sound the same. There are no differences. Nothing distinguishes one brand from another.”
Why We Must Evolve, or Die
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tom Triumph
“It really comes down to a decision. You either ride things out, fight for the status quo and hope the changes you’re sensing are going to slow (they won’t), or you think about where the world is headed and change to get yourself there. The journey is difficult, but the direction is clear. Evolve or die.”
Leadership On Day One
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Drew Dudley
“I’ve studied leadership my entire adult life, and I firmly believe there is no shortage of leadership on this planet. However, we are systematically ignoring a huge percentage of the leadership that surrounds us each day because we have chosen to define it too narrowly.”
Don’t Stress: When Doing and Spending Less Can Help Your Business Get Ahead
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Stephen Wunker & Jennifer Luo Law
“Innovation doesn’t always have to be more—more flavors, more horsepower, more memory space, more bells and whistles. New solutions can excel in their simplicity, earning customer love and saving money along the way—and, yes, that is just as deserving of being called 'innovative' as a new blockchain game or genetic therapy.”
The Forgotten Diversity Group: Ambitious Women Who Want to Lean “In-Between”
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Kathryn Sollmann
“Diversity and inclusion is a hot topic on corporate agendas these days, but despite the best efforts of employers, a large group of women are feeling left out. When it comes to leadership training, employers are still pressuring women to conform to one profile of an ambitious and successful woman.”
The Secret to an Engaged Workforce (That Shouldn’t Be So Secret)
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Aron Ain
“Everyone deserves a great manager—a boss who will inspire, support, and empower them to do their best work. Great managers are a practical necessity. You see, employees might join companies because of the money, the perks, or the company’s brand, but they leave companies because of their managers.””
Daring Conversations: How to Communicate with Candor, Clarity, Compassion, and Ease
Oct. 10, 2018 - By: Alexia Vernon
“There is no shortage of theories about why there are not more women leading companies, boards, and local, state, and national governments. What remains lacking is a complementary intervention that addresses a behavior most women struggle with—a behavior that leaders irrespective of gender need to possess—navigating difficult conversations.”
Using Learning to Engage, Compete, and Succeed
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Kelly Palmer & David Blake
“If you aren’t ready and willing to learn every day and keep up with a rapidly changing world, you can’t and won’t stay competitive. Gone are the days when you could graduate with a four-year degree and feel secure that you had learned everything you needed to know to stay relevant for your entire career.”
Business Must Make Life Better
Sept. 19, 2018 - By: Richard Hardyment
“We desperately need a more human form of capitalism that places people at its heart—whether that’s farmers supplying raw materials, factory workers creating goods, or shoppers buying and consuming products and services. We need business to embrace a wellbeing purpose with an audacious ambition: to make life feel better.”
