Which Role?

Execupundit

I recently spoke with an executive about how roles can change. Depending on the circumstances, the person may be a leader, manager, judge, mediator, spokesperson, liaison, diplomat, investigator, planner, motivator, student, teacher, and a variety of other roles. It is not unusual to wear several hats at once. Depending upon the role, the definition of success can vary. Under some circumstances, being The Grand Clarifier is as good as it gets and clarification is a form of winning.

Lead With Questions, Not Answers

Leading in Context

By Linda Fisher Thornton Leaders Ask The Hard Questions While it's tempting to try to "have the answers," good leaders instead ask the hard questions. They may be questions for which the world does not have workable answers. They may be questions that help reinvent a company or industry.

Harvard Business Review

Carmen Martínez Torrón. Hayon Thapaliya/Getty Images. AI is coming. That is what we heard throughout 2017 and will likely continue to hear throughout this year. For established businesses that are not Google or Facebook, a natural question to ask is: What have we got that is going to allow us to survive this transition?

Harvard Business Review

Harry Haysom/Getty Images. When we talk about the importance of building strong relationships with employees, there’s a growing contingent that we often neglect: those who don’t work in the main office.

I’ve experienced this problem both as a manager and as an employee.
