Pass Judgment

Leading Blog

P OLITE SOCIETY teaches us that passing judgment isn’t nice. It’s demeaning, we’re told, especially when it’s applied to people. However well intended though, a reluctance to judge when leading people and managing an organization will hold the people and the organization back.

5 Ways to Lead Change in a Change-Averse Environment

Lead Change Blog

Despite the constancy of change in today’s global marketplace, the environment for change in many organizations is unfriendly at best. Few organizations have the appetite for change found at Facebook, Google, Amazon, and other innovative firms. I work extensively with CPAs, CFOs, and other technical professionals; a group not known for its propensity to change. As a leader, you recognize that when the pace of internal change lags the pace of change in the external environment.

Integrity and Trustworthiness: A Lost Art?

Lead Change Blog

“You are only as good as your word.” This used to be a popular, if trite and overstated concept. Unfortunately, in many circles today, the mantra may sound to many as some quaint old notion. We all know that, in reality, it’s far more than that.

The Revival of the Integrated Life

Steve Farber
