Recently I published an article titled “The Best Leaders Ask Great Questions”.  The premise of the article is that CEOs and senior leaders who apply a Socratic leadership approach tend to bring out the best in their people.  While having the answers is ok, asking the right questions can be an extremely powerful leadership skill.  Asking questions is the best way to quench ones thirst for knowledge.  Learning occurs best when we actively listen an...

Does your organization suffer from high churnover?
Organizations have the on-going task of attracting, retaining and developing their talent.  Today more than ever employees view jobs as temporary.  Gone are the days of joining an organization and staying for an entire career.  While it does still happen, most employees tend to change jobs and companies many times throughout their careers.Turnover is inevitable.  Companies that recognize this build talent pipelines and bench strength for each and...

Proof that employee engagement really matters.
Having supported numerous CEOs over the course of our careers in both HR leadership and management consulting roles, we often find ourselves ‘at the table’, coaching leaders, solving problems and contributing to create the strategy and plans needed to build and grow businesses. Sooner or later a discussion about an organizations’ talent occurs, especially when existing staff are viewed as key to delivering the desired results.Today, more than eve...

Several years ago I had the unique opportunity to sit down with the former CEO of one of the worlds most prestigious investment banks.  During our conversation, I asked about his role as CEO and his leadership style.  His answer surprised me.  He saw his number one responsibility being to ask questions.  Rather than seeing the top leadership role as being the person to provide the answers, he saw his responsibility as asking the right questions. ...

Does your organization effectively measure employee engagement?
Most companies have come to recognize that there is a direct correlation between employee engagement and financial results.  Employees who are engaged give discretionary effort and do the right things for their employers.  That translates into better business results.  However, too many companies fail at effectively measuring employee engagement.  In working with several clients on their culture and employee engagement, we have found that compani...

As a social psychologist and organizational development practitioner, I like to look for patterns in human behavior. One pattern that I have discovered through building my consulting practice revolves around business development and networking. What I have found is that the majority of my work has come through connections, which is not surprising, but what is surprising is the fact that most of the work has not been for people who are my first le...

We have been Euroswise customers and fans for several years. It is nice to have an honest, high quality shop in Charlotte that does great work at rates much more affordable than the dealer. Phil and team at the Springbrook location worked on our Audi's and BMWs. Alex and his team at the newer location off Kenley are top notch. Just had my Range Rover Evoque brakes replaced and a tune up at half the dealer ticket price. Definitely highly recommend Eurowise for all future automotive needs.
