Salary and Bonus: What Are They For?

For Effort Or For Results?

“I worked hard this year!  I deserve a bigger bonus!”  I heard this complaint almost annually in 15 years in various sales leadership positions.  Sometimes it was a valid complaint.  Most of the time it wasn’t.

I like people who are competitive and driven to win.  In sales, I looked for those traits in everyone I hired.  Unfortunately, I found that drive often gave people an unrealistic perception of what they deserved.

“You receive a salary for effort.  You get a raise and/or bonuses for results.” Continue Reading…

Bad Attitudes – Entitlement and A Cure

Be Thankful!

“I deserve more!” A lot of dysfunctional attitudes can be traced back to this one statement. It is another way of saying, “I am entitled.”

When I am not happy with my day, my week or my life, I can usually trace it back to a feeling of entitlement. The belief that any of us are entitled to more than we already have is a recipe for a pity party. As a leader at work and at home, I am not entitled to anything! Especially a pity party!

Your Choices Make You or Break You

Who I am as a person is determined by the choices I make in life. Courage is a choice. Humility is a choice. Integrity is a choice. Selflessness is a choice. Duty is a choice. Positivity is a choice.

My circumstances may not be in my control, but the choices I make in the midst of those circumstances are. Each time I am faced with a choice, I am either moving closer to the person I want to be or further from it.   Continue Reading…

Leadership: What’s In It For Me?

What's In It For Me?

Often when I find myself dissatisfied with being a leader I can trace it back to one question, “What’s in it for me?” This may be a natural question many of us ask as we evaluate options, but it is a recipe for dissatisfaction and a bad attitude for leaders.

Don’t get me wrong. I love leading. But the benefits of leading are often intangible versus the tangible answers we are looking for when we ask, “What’s in it for me?” (WIIFM) Continue Reading…

How To Become The Leader You Want To Be

JUST DO IT!

No one ever gets in shape by reading a fitness magazine or by going to the gym once. We get in shape by actually breaking a sweat. You have to do more than read the principles in a book or article. You need to DO them.

You have to DO what you want to BE! Continue Reading…

Two Ways You Know You Are About to Fail

Should Have Seen It Coming?

Critiquing a basketball team or soccer team the day after a game is easy. ESPN has built a television empire by analyzing the mistakes made by coaches and players.

The scrutiny is often insightful with multiple lessons for other coaches and players to consider. It is much easier to diagnose why someone failed AFTER the failure.

But, what can we to do identify an impending failure? How can we see it before it happens and make changes? Continue Reading…

Indifference – The Scariest Attitude of All

Indifference is scary

I get tired of people with bad attitudes very quickly. The griping, the moaning, the focus on every negative or potential negative wears me out and makes me want to run away.

There was a saying when I was in the Army that stated, “If the soldiers aren’t complaining, they aren’t happy.” But here is a scary thought – What if the complaining finally stopped?

Have things gotten better or have the people just become indifferent? If a team is indifferent, that is the scariest attitude of them all. Continue Reading…
