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. Collaboration is second- or third-nature for a large majority of us and this predisposes us to consistently revert to our more selfish ways, especially where we’re rewarded and recognized to do so.”
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.”
How to Master the Business Presentation
Nov. 14, 2018 - By: Tim Calkins
“The business world revolves around presentations. … While emails and text messages are now ubiquitous, they rarely replace the presentation. It is hard to debate and discuss in depth in a text message. As a result, if you are going to be a successful business lead, you have to know how to create and deliver presentations that are tight, logical and convincing.”
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.”
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.”
