Embedding the capacity for greatness in the people and practices of an organization, and decoupling it from the personality of the leader

Note: This post is adapted from some posts that I originally created on Adobe’s blog while I was an employee there. I recently finished reading former U.S. Navy Submarine Commander David Marquet’s book “Turn the Ship Around”. It is a powerful story of learning what leadership means and the struggles Marquet had putting it into place …

Oftentimes, the biggest obstacle for a new leader has little to do with how well she knows the job or whether she possesses the right technical skills.

While many auto makers are introducing vehicles with semiautonomous features and planning to develop that technology aggressively, the Google car design takes a driver out of the equation entirely.

Set one key ground rule: “Silence denotes agreement” or “qui tacet consentire videtur,” as it’s been known for centuries.

If you have not analyzed and understood a manager’s methodology, how can you possibly know whether the results are due to skill or chance?

At that slightly higher salary, you’d have to work for more than 150 years before you make up for that vast tuition difference.
A diploma from a highly selective college means higher pay in certain fields. In others, it makes almost no difference at all

Accountability is about clarifying results and behaviors, not making promises.
Accountability, in traditional environments, is about power. Who has it? How is it used? The teeth in traditional accountability is the power to reward and punish. Accountability as pressure: Short...

Is the Listener at least partly responsible for the communication? Indeed, perhaps they should be. However, there’s a good chance they won’t be. So you and I have a choice. 
Communicating is a daily responsibility. Here are some ideas for how to make sure your communication is always clear.

It can be tough enough communicating with someone right in front of you, let alone miles away.

Lincoln made himself available for what he called "public opinion baths," an open forum for citizens to ask about his policies, challenge him on his positions, or convey to him their concerns. 
Although he was a president, Abraham Lincoln's life provides some powerful lessons for teachers: demonstrating restraint, building trust, and the power of predictability and presence.

If your kids are allowed to have access to the Internet, it leaves them vulnerable the same way it would if you let them play in the park by themselves.
Cyberthieves who commit identity theft are targeting children’s personal data. Criminals often combine a child’s Social Security number with a fake date of birth and address to avoid suspicion. Data breaches at schools also make children particularly vulnerable.

Learning to do better things better.
Introduction

I work with customers and partners to create and deliver innovative solutions to business problems. My experience with companies of all sizes provides a unique and varied perspective that allows me to collaborate with business leaders and uncover details that might be otherwise overlooked.  I work with clients on initiatives involving global delivery teams and that are aimed at significant productivity and financial improvement.

 Having managed consulting offices for Coopers & Lybrand and ACT, I understand and have dealt with staff retention issues, project management and P&L responsibility. With Perot Systems and Litton Enterprise Solutions, I led large outsourcing sales efforts to successful completion. I sold application performance management (APM) solutions for CA, and at Sybase, I worked closely with many of Wall Street's large financial firms on Database, Replication and Disaster Recovery initiatives. Now at Symphony Teleca, I am directly involved in offshore outsourcing engagements and lead a key account in establishing a new model for global relationship management.

 I have a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from St. Anselm College (NH), and also studied at Trinity College (CT) and Schiller College in Heidelberg, Germany. I live in CT with my wife and two youngest children, and enjoy reading, running, soccer and darts.

Bragging rights
