Four Important Toasts to Improve the FATE of Your Team

Lead Change Blog

The release date of this article was strategically planned – because toasts should not be reserved for New Year’s Eve only. Toasts should not be unspoken until the end of your season or project. Team celebrations and personal reflections should, like feedback, be shared and encouraged on a consistent basis. It is always a good time to remind ourselves of what is important moving forward and to celebrate the small successes of our recent past.

Leadership – It’s Not About You

N2Growth Blog

If you think leadership is about you, your ego has led you astray. Leadership has little to do with you and everything to do with those you lead. If you think leadership is about the bottom line, think again; it’s about the people. Without the people there is no bottom line. Closely examine the core characteristics of great leadership, and you’ll find it’s not power, title, authority or even technical competency that distinguishes truly great leaders.

What To Do When The Customer is Wrong

Let's Grow Leaders

The only problem with the concept, “The customer is always right,” is that sometimes they’re wrong. If you’ve been in any kind of customer-facing position, I know you’re with me. Sure, there are many, many circumstances where the only choice is to bite your tongue and concede, for the good of the customer experience. But some wrong is just, well…wrong.

Overcoming the Barriers to Corporate Entrepreneurship

Strategy Driven

How do organizations achieve longevity, the kind of longevity that survives long past the founder or any particular leader or leadership team? Professors of business and corporate strategy (which includes me) research and lecture about the goal of long-term “sustained” competitive advantage, driven by grand plans that mesmerize and seduce the most seasoned leaders and leadership teams. On reflection, though, I find that the evidence does not support competitive advantage as a path to longevity.

Business And Life Lessons My Father Taught Me

Eric Jacobson

My father passed away 15 years ago this month. What he taught me has served me well in business and in life. Even lessons I learned when I didn't at the time necessarily realize I was learning from him. So, I thank my dad for teaching me the following business and life lessons : Listen - Growing up, I thought my Dad was perhaps shy or quiet. Really, he was just a great listener. I believe that's what made him so wise. He would listen to anyone. Young or old. New acquaintance or friend.

7 Leadership Paradigms Needed for Church Growth

Ron Edmondson

I speak with churches every week who want to grow again, but nothing they do seems to work. I have heard people say it’s often a vision problem. It could be, but I think they are likely other reasons. In fact, the church – although it may not be living it – actually has the clearest, best defined vision of anyone. We are to “Go and make disciples” There are obvious problems in these churches – for example, most aren’t really doing anything new.

Unintended Consequences

Curious Cat

Using data to understand your processes and improve them is very useful. But using data often results in unintended consequences. If you don’t have a good understanding on the pressures collecting data will bring to bear on the system you can create pressure for results that damage the delivery of value to customers. In this example there are requirements to take action if certain conditions are present.

Jordan Jellblottom, CEO of Jellmotion, has your proposal. In fact, Jordan’s had your proposal for about eight weeks. Even though you were told the project is high priority, Jordan’s not responding to your emails or phone calls. No signed project. No polite rejection either. Nothing. Why?

3 Ways Social Entrepreneurs Can Solve Their Talent Problem

Harvard Business

Vincent Tsui for HBR. The impact of “social entrepreneurs” — individuals who deploy innovation and market forces to fill social needs — is growing. Bringing light to Africa , mobile banking to Bangladesh , low-cost health care to Nepal, or better school lunches to the American cafeteria: In all these cases, the private sector is a big part of the action. That social entrepreneurs can make a difference is not in question ( here are dozens of examples).

Stop Making Gratitude All About You

Harvard Business

You read a lot these days about research showing that practicing gratitude — making a deliberate point of being grateful for the good things in your life — has all sorts of benefits for happiness and well-being. These articles usually end with a call to start a gratitude journal to reap the full benefits of being thankful. There’s nothing wrong with that.

What the Best Cross-Cultural Managers Have in Common

Harvard Business

Most large organizations today are looking for leaders who can easily and effectively move between countries and cultures, taking on expat assignments, understanding disparate markets, and managing diverse teams. Where can they find such talent? My advice is to look to a group of people I call “global cosmopolitans”— highly educated, multilingual professionals who have already lived, worked, and studied for extensive periods outside their home regions.

The U.S.’s “Special Relationship” Is with Germany, Not Britain

Harvard Business

The day after Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, President Obama went on record to reassure Prime Minister David Cameron that there would be no major change in American policy toward Britain. The two countries, he said, had always had a special relationship and this would continue. It was not the first time this “special relationship” has been invoked. Tony Blair did so when Britain decided to join the U.S.’s ’s 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Judging by our interactions with CEOs around the world to date, some of their burning questions are: What are the elements of uncertainty created by Brexit?

How Facebook Tries to Prevent Office Politics

Harvard Business

When personal motivations trump company goals, it can hinder a company’s ability to get things done. Since our earliest days at Facebook, we’ve been mindful about not letting office maneuvering poison work life. We’d seen the negative effects that certain kinds of political behavior can have when they creep into office life, and we wanted to make sure we didn’t let them creep into ours.
