I Trusted. I Got Burned. So What?

Your Vision, Mission and Values are Worthless

Most companies and a lot of individuals have a vision, a mission and a list of values. When we design them, we have high expectations that the impact of these philosophical platitudes will be huge.

THE TRUTH:

If your Vision, Mission and Values don’t impact your behaviors, they are worthless! Continue Reading…

Vision: Am I Enjoying The Ride?

Enjoying The Ride

There are times when I love to drive.  Long drives on open roads are some of my favorites.  I like to have my music turned up and my seat pushed back.  I enjoy uninterrupted views for miles.

I Can’t Lead Without Leaving My Office

You can't lead from here!

Is this scene familiar to you? The boss walks through the office and says “Good morning” to people before closing his door until lunch. He walks back through the office after lunch saying “Good afternoon” to people before closing his door until he leaves the building at the end of the day. “See you tomorrow!”, he says cheerfully.

It may seem like a scene from “The Office” or a Dilbert cartoon. But unfortunately when I speak or consult with companies, this is a common scenario. The major source of interaction people have with their boss is through electronic communications. This is not leading! Continue Reading…

The Five Best Times To Coach Your People

How are you doing coach?

If we are not developing our people, we should stop calling ourselves leaders! I don’t know why leaders ignore the coaching part of their jobs. But I work with so many organizations and hear the same story again and again.

“I never hear from my boss unless something is wrong.”

“I get feedback once a year at my performance review.”
