I am wondering if there are more innovative ways to reward loyal clients than just to offer discounts on repeat consulting assignments and referral incentives. The point of my question is to know what clients value most from a consultant as a reward or incentive. Does anyone know of any survey done? Thanks.

That's a good idea Alexandra. As  a further thought, I was wondering if I could form  a sort of Authority Club for loyal consumers where we could have webinars addressed by some big leaders in the field. I am looking to give something that feels exclusive and really like a big reward and a rare reward. What do you think?

Relationship between culture and strategy

Strategy is capability, culture is suitability. This is a bit like horse and carriage you can't have one without the other

Brian Williams in the Yo-Yo Zone

There has been a moderate amount of jibber-jabber about Brian Williams’ situation, probably about what the situation deserves. Lucky for him, there have been an enormous number of significant and newsworthy events about the news business during the week when he would have occupied almost all the headlines otherwise. He’s one lucky dude.

Let’s just talk about the things that really matter in the Brian Williams saga.

Well the rest of you are trying to survive the drunken, sweaty, portapotty aroma mobfest that is SXSW.  Beginning Saturday I'll be heading off to a breathtaking Cerebral Invite Only intimate gathering of thought leader at Dent Conference in Sun Valley.  Theres a quiet rumor someone named Robert will be there whose been hiding from the internet lately.

I'll be attending an amazing party with Scott Jordan​ and get to experience his place and his wife well regarded cooking I've heard so much about.  I'll be Meerkating live from the events and taking tons of video and photos.  In the end we'll have a awesome document of Dent on Youtube and social media that should entice people to come in droves.

Steve Broback​ sent me the approved list of invites and WOW so many "Founder," "CEO," "VC," names on the list.  I think I'll end up smarter.  I feel honored to be on the list.  I might just have to wear a tie with my shorts.

Evidently Buick/GM are gonna have some really "cool" stuff there and set in a beautiful area.  You can come sit in some nice Sun Valley hot tubs and wash off all that SXSW gunk.

Its not too late come - check out the website!

Are you Separated or Connected?
http://www.leadershipandchangemagazine.com/separated-or-connected/ 
Are you a change practitioner or an activist? A leader or a learner? Or, all of the above? We seem to be ready for new connections and mindsets - and willing to contribute to the common good. What do you think? Is the story of separation or the story of connection prevalent in your work?

Six Advantages of Hyperbolic Discounting…And What The Heck Is It Anyway?
Hyperbolic discounting happens when people would rather receive $5 right now than ten bucks in a month. That’s it. People value the immediacy of time over the higher value of money.

Is this why it makes financial sense for companies to offer lucrative rebates in which you have to mail in the form and wait months for the check?

Many people live by schedules that don’t leave space to slow down and to be mindfully aware of what really happens. 

http://www.leadershipandchangemagazine.com/awake/

How do you wake up to the present? 
What emerges if I let go of attachment to outcomes and SMART goals? 
You live by a busy schedule - but are you awake? What if you give more attention to what happens right now and don’t force reality into a schedule and goals?
