Four Keys To Overcoming Failure

What now?

What if I fail?  There are no “If’s”!  You will fail.  We all fail.  We all fall flat on our faces at some point.  Some of us have more scars from those falls than others.

I am convinced that whatever success I have achieved in this life can be traced back to the failures that preceded the successes.  Thomas Watson once said, “If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.”

If leaders, employees, spouses and children changed their attitude from fearing failure to embracing it, they would all increase their success rate. Continue Reading…

News Flash: We Are All Called to Lead

We are all leaders

“I’m just not the leader type.” Some people say this because they misunderstand leadership. Some people say this because they don’t want the responsibility that comes with being a leader.

Let me clear something up. We are all called to lead! Avoiding leadership is next to impossible. Many people say leadership is influence. If that is true, then we should all consider ourselves leaders.

No matter where I am or who I am, I have influence.   There is truly only two ways I can influence someone. I can either make them worse or make them better. Continue Reading…

Talent is Plentiful and Overrated

Nice but not enough

“He had done well everywhere he worked!”

“She had a ton of experience in her field.”

“The skills he brought to the team were exactly what we needed.”

“She had a Master’s degree in Marketing!”

In my career of hiring people and now developing leaders for companies large and small, many of the worst hiring mistakes were justified with similar statements.  Sometimes we get so excited about someone’s talent, we miss “Who they are.” Continue Reading…

One Thing Great Coaches Like Coach K Do

Which one's the coach?

It was 1979 and I was sitting on a slab of concrete in the 90 degree heat at a summer basketball camp.  I was about to be in 8th grade and loved basketball.

I wanted to show the coach of the local college that I was willing to do anything to get better.  The coach was on the court demonstrating how we were supposed to play good man-to-man help defense.  He was sweating like I was, and I loved it.

Though he was young and in his first head coaching job, I thought he one of the greatest coaches alive. His name was Coach Mike Krzyzewski, and he wasn’t just modeling good defense.  He was modeling good coaching. Continue Reading…

My Un-Resume: I Didn’t Exercise Ugly Leadership

My Un-Resume

In a hotel bar in Orlando, a peer of mine was acting like the south end of a north-facing horse during a convention we were attending…and I did nothing about it. I failed as a leader that night.

I am still disappointed in myself because I failed to act like a leader when someone needed to step forward. The situation was not a pretty one. I chose not to deal with an ugly situation, and therefore I failed to exercise Ugly Leadership. Continue Reading…

Leadership Motto – SEE, SEIZE, and SERVE

See, Seize and Serve

Good leaders see the need, seize the opportunity, and serve without expecting anything in return. Who wouldn’t want to work for a leader like this? What about working beside people who – SEE, SEIZE and SERVE?

A great team motto would be SEE, SEIZE and SERVE. When I talk to leaders about establishing core values and making them come to life, I often talk about the importance of communicating “What good looks like” to the teams they lead. Continue Reading…

Four Words That Separate a Leader from a Manager

Leader Vs. Manager

“What’s the difference between a leader and a manager?” she asked.  I was sitting in front of this executive because this was the crux of the issue going on in her company.

I was unprepared for the question and therefore rambled on WAY too long. I was sure I did not get her business.  Fortunately, somewhere in my long winded answer she heard something she liked, and she hired me to work with her team leaders.

Now I can answer her question in four words –

Behaviors, Followers, Titles, Subordinates
