The Difference Between Criticism & Input

Timing

“That’s enough Lieutenant Anderson!”

I sat down and stayed quiet for the rest of my battalion commander’s weekly meeting.  I saw the smirk on our operations officer’s face.  As I walked out of the room later, a friendly captain patted me on the back, shook his head and told me not to give up.

Leadership vs. Brown-Nosing

What are my motives?

When I was promoted, I arrived at my first managers meeting having only met one of my peers.  The group had a history together. I was an outsider.  Over time, they all became my good friends.  But, we had a rocky beginning.

After a number of months, I realized that a few people believed I was a “brown-noser”.  What I considered sharing others considered showboating.  When I thought I was leading, some thought I was grand standing.

I spent some time soul searching over this issue.  Were they right?  Should I keep quiet in meetings because of the effect it had on the other managers?  No.  Continue Reading…

Leaders Keep Commitments. Period.

How Strong Is Your Character?

“(Commitment is) doing what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you were in when you said you were going to do it has passed.”

James Brown, Co-Founder Arena Growth Partners

We all make commitments to others. Sometimes we wish we hadn’t made those commitments. It happens to me all the time. I’ll set an appointment with a potential client. I’ll say “yes” to helping someone in their yard. I’ll tell my family I will take a day off from work. But, then something happens. Continue Reading…

5 Keys To Avoiding Harmony

Harmony Can Hurt A Team

“If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”

-George Patton

Based on this quote, I’ve been on teams that would have made General Patton crazy.  You may have too.  These are teams where people don’t speak up.  Everyone is agreeable and all ideas are good – especially if the ideas came from the boss.

The results:

  • Meetings are boring.
  • Ideas are vanilla.
  • Results are average.

Lessons from the 2015 Army-Navy Game

Dad and Me 2015 A-N

This weekend I attended an annual Army-Navy game watching party at Top of the Hill Restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. The experience is second only to actually being in Philadelphia at the game itself.

In both places current and former cadets and midshipmen gather in the most meaningful rivalry in college sports. As I watched this year, I did so not just as a member West Point Class of 1988, but also as a student of leadership and a civilian who depends on the military to insure my freedom. This blog is a partial list of the lessons I learned. Continue Reading…
