More important than listening skills is assuming a listening attitude. Here are five things you can do that will help.
Great leaders are great listeners. Most people think they're better listeners than they are. More important than listening skills is a listening attitude.

Chances are you will initiate a change that affects your whole team or start a major team project in the near future.

And chances are it will not make the impact you had hoped for.
Thinking of initiating change on your team? Most change efforts fail, not because it was the wrong idea, but because of failure to plan for the human factor

Developing your team is as important as delivering results. Unless you have a mindset that it is important to develop your team, you will lose some of your best people before you even notice them.

This is a lovely moment – the winter solstice.
The darkest day of the darkest week of the year . . .
If you pay close attention, you can feel the pause before light overtakes the dark..
This darkest day reminds us to pause, too.
Soon it will be time to think about the new year and begin to plan, but first, pause and think about absolutely nothing.
The winter solstice, the moment before light overtakes dark, reminds us that before thinking about goals for the new year, first pause and do nothing.

Vision and action are sequential. As you take a step your vision will become more clear, as long as you STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR VISION.
The path might not be clear, but stay focused on your vision and take the next step. There will be many unexpected turns and surprises along the way, but if you hold what is essential and true, your choices will be clear. As you move toward what you truly desire, you will understand it more deeply and your vision will become clearer. Remember, the journey is as important as the destination. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * In addition to my regu...

Learning leadership skills and best practices is important but...

I learned these three lessons about the power of authenticity in my first job:
➤ Techniques are helpful if they are applied in a genuine relationship.
➤ Authenticity is more powerful than doing a technique perfectly.
➤ My own being, who I am in total, is my real instrument of change.
What happens when you have to admit you don't know what you're doing? Sometimes the power of authenticity is the key to turning things around.

Although the dream still guides and inspires many of us today, sadly we are not as close to achieving it as we had hoped. Hopefully the ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬ movement will continue to raise consciousness and we can find ways to leverage the "Physics of Change."
Masters of change like Martin Luther King, Jr, understood that vision alone is rarely enough. Real change masters leverage the physics of change to bring about transformation.

Vision is about serving something greater than yourself. If not in service of a vision, your leadership can become self-serving.

5 guidelines to create a "Dynamic Strategic Plan" that enables you to respond quickly and proactively in today's fast-paced, unpredictable world.
The traditional approach to strategic planning might be obsolete in this fast-paced, unpredictable world. But it does not mean that planning is useless. Creating a dynamic strategic plan will enable you to respond quickly and to be creatively proactive. The problem with the traditional planning approach is – it doesn’t work. Recent research shows 60-80% of firms fail to execute their strategies, and fewer than 5% of employees are aware of, or und...
