    By Jayne Jenkins, CEO, Churchill Leadership Group As business leaders we experience constant pressure from all sides, but our time and energy to get things done and deliver results is limited.

    By Joseph Skursky, President of Market Leader Solutions Have you ever felt like you’re paddling as hard as you can to go upstream but just can’t seem to make any progress? If you have, you’re not alone. I see this quite often both in HR and in leadership areas.

    If you have all the answers, new ideas & creative solutions may get lost.

    By Claire Laughlin, Consultant & Trainer, Leadership 4 Design Don’t you love the feeling of being curious? I associate it with awe, wonder, interest and spark. Imagine a company culture where this feeling exists at all levels, what a great tool to motivate, manage & lead employees.

    Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace: How to Develop Yourself & Your Team

    Do you believe emotional intelligence is a skill you can develop in others?

    Emotional Intelligence is the ability to create a balance between knowing what you don’t know and that what you do know can be improved.  It also means you have the ability to see the same knowledge and balance in others; teaching them how to be aware and create a good balance for themselves.  The ability to learn gives you authority, the ability to teach gives you power.  At the end of the day…and at the end of this article…I would like you to walk away with an...Continue reading

    3 Steps to a More Productive Day: Focus Tips For Managers

    Stop multi-tasking and focus on what you are good at.

    By Jayne Jenkins, CEO, Churchill Leadership Group We all have 24 hours in a day, but why does it feel like some managers get more done than others? Do they survive on 4 hours sleep like Margaret Thatcher? Maybe they don't have families or they possess magical superpowers?   For me I need 6-7 hours of sleep, and to be honest, there is enough data on human wellness out there to convince me not to give up this true "regeneration time." I am a high energy A-type personality and for a long time I...Continue reading
