Lead Change Blog

This ultimately affects our ability to achieve success in whatever endeavor we undertake. But, as the age-old saying goes, sometimes we are our “own worst enemy.” This is because we forget to check in and take care of ourselves in the midst of our daily grind to lead our teams and our organizations.

You’re Busy, But Are You Productive?

Let's Grow Leaders

I see them in every organization I work with–the super-busy, really stressed manager who gets in early, stays late, eats lunch at their desk, and still can’t get it all done. Sadly they’re also often resentful that their performance doesn’t warrant an “exceptional” rating or a promotion. They lament: “Can’t they see how hard I’m working? I’m sacrificing everything for this job.”

3 Ways to Prepare for a Successful Meeting

Anese Cavanaugh

Heading into a media interview for the book last week, I was ready to roll. Excited. Prepared. I’d done all my pre-work, set my intentions, taken really great care of myself. I got on the call, the host was running late (for great reasons), the audio needed some tweaking, and right before we launched they said something about “I don’t know how this is going to go over with our audience, let’s hope they like it”.

Strategizing for Success: Keys for Planning Annual Sales & Marketing Goals, part 2 of 2

Strategy Driven

The Strategy of Creating a Space for Success. A fundamental strategy for annual planning is creating a space for success. You can only have so many things. When something is occupying space, something else cannot occupy the same space. This is true both literally and in the metaphoric sense of occupying mental space or space in your business.

The Five Defenses Against Large Consulting Firms

David A Fields

Let’s face it, many reasons we say a client should hire us instead of a large consulting firm don’t hold water. We’re smart; they’re smart too. We’re responsive; their project teams are responsive. We’re experienced; they’re experienced. We sing Christmas carols in the shower; they sing Christmas carols in the shower, in harmony. Maybe. I’m not sure about that last one. Are there any legitimate reasons a client should eschew large consultancies?
