Jan. 23, 2019 - By: Mike Mooney
“It is vital to understand that we are living in a perfect storm that is making our reputations more fragile than at any other time in human history! […] It’s a new day in the court of public opinion and oftentimes these moments go viral and a bad situation gets worse in a hurry.”

Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Dileep Rao, Ph.D.
“Silicon Valley venture capital is like a very successful lottery. […] For entrepreneurs who want to reduce the role of luck in their success and improve their odds, here are six reasons why you don’t need VC to build a billion-dollar business.”
The Teamwork Imperative
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Simon Mac Rory
“Over 90 percent of what we do in our work lives happens through collaborative effort. That makes teams and teamwork the most important means of output and productivity in the organization. So you would think that organizations would treat team performance as a strategic imperative, but most do not, preferring to muddle on with poorly performing teams and accepting mediocrity.”
The Silent Killer of Founder Owned Businesses
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: D. Scot Hunsaker
“A recent Wall Street Journal/Vistage poll showed that half of all business owners say that they have a succession plan, but only 25 percent have actually put pen to paper and written it down. I would contend that if you haven’t written down your succession plan you don’t really have one. It doesn’t have to be this way.”
One Room, One Team, Different Purposes
Dec. 27, 2018 - By: Carlos Valdes-Dapena
“We preach collaboration, talk and train teamwork, but all the while organizations are optimized to manage, foster and reward individual effort.

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.”
