Leading Blog

Addicted to Change

Lead Change Blog

Gonna have to face it: we’re addicted to change. I’m not a scientist or a psychologist. I define addiction my own way. You’re addicted to something when it’s not good for you, but you do it anyway. Over and over. By my definition, we’re addicted to change. Consider the experience of one of my coaching clients. He worked for a large company for seven years. In that time, the company had at least one management fad per year.

6 Defining Values of a Leadership Culture

N2Growth Blog

Twelve years after launching culture change consulting services, I am finally sitting down to write about six defining values of a leadership culture. These are factors I’ve learned that define whether an organization can improve their Culture or not. No surprise that all six values rise and fall on leadership. Before I unpack the six values, let me paint the backdrop of how it all began. In 2006, one of my CEO clients in Sarasota, FL shared with me his annual employee engagement survey.

The One Skill Everyone Should Have

Lead Change Blog

Don’t get me wrong. Collaboration, diversity, and authenticity are definitely things we need more of in this world and conformity isn’t something I value. But, in my experience, there is one skill that flies under the radar, is mighty, and can put you on a new playing field: resourcefulness. Every successful team has someone with it. The person who is able to beautifully throw together a last minute request from the boss.

Busy, is a four-letter word, even if it isn’t the type my mother warned me about. Generally, we feel like things are getting done when we are busy, yet “busy” is a symptom of a rampant problem – one that most people don’t even realize.

“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.” – Oprah Winfrey. With great risk comes the possibility of great rewards. Many of us don’t dare to question the status quo and continue to reel under the pressure of our habits. Habits that hold us back and may even be responsible to stymie our growth.
