    Developing An Emotionally Intelligent Organization

    Breaking Down EQ Barriers By Giving Your Organization a Voice

    Over the last few months I’ve spent a lot of time talking with executives about emotional intelligence and the impact it has on results.  One individual whom I would deem as highly emotionally intelligent expressed disappointment in his own executive peer group. During their recent strategy session the dialog was focused on results, structural reasons for results, external market reasons for results, any reason for results that did not require an understanding or accountability for what is...Continue reading

    Personal Motivators-A Straighter Path Toward High Engagement

    Lessons in Leadership Genius

    Business success depends on the timing and fulfillment of customer-centric needs or desires. Many companies get that right, although some of it is simply by luck.    On the other hand, long-term and sustainable success requires, among other things, the critical element of a highly engaged workforce. This is always a deliberate effort by leadership to gain the commitment of their people…and never happens by luck or happenstance.    This brings to mind the email signature line...Continue reading

    How To Avoid Putting On A Costume At Work

    3 simple steps to be true to who you are as you step in the door at work.

    Does how you act at home or outside of work, match how you are at work?    Are you nice, funny, and relaxed at home but mean, straight laced, and stiff at work?    At home are you easy to approach, but at work people are afraid to ask you questions?   As I’ve been working with clients lately, I’ve noticed something interesting.  Somewhere along the line, people got the impression that when they moved into their new role as a manager or supervisor, they needed...Continue reading

    The Weight of Your Words

    Your words have weight. That’s why you should wait to speak them.

    As a senior-level manager, your words are weightier than they used to be. When you speak, people listen and respond. This is both a blessing and a curse.   Of course, it’s helpful that your words (backed by your authority) are taken seriously and compel action. But there’s another side of the coin to consider. Do people sometimes put more stock in what you say than what you intended?   This can happen when you forget your role and speak casually about almost any topic. I recently...Continue reading

    3 Keys to Improve Your Employee Relationships

    Address engagement, retention & happiness issues in your workplace.

    The stats about employee engagement are dismal, there’s no doubt. Up to 70% of employees appear to be disengaged at some level. 75% of employees cite their manager as being the biggest source of stress in the workplace.    And it’s been well documented that employees leave managers not organizations.    So perhaps as a middle manager you are eyeball deep in not only working to execute the objectives you have, but keeping your precious team on board, and working...Continue reading

    5 Questions Change Agents Use to Move People Forward

    A Guide to Overcoming Resistance to Change

    As leaders and managers we are often in the position of instigating or shepherding change efforts. Whether you are leading a process improvement team, implementing a new policy or system, or even driving cultural changes, you are, in effect, a change agent. You are introducing a new way of doing things, which means adopting new behaviors and letting go of old habits and patterns.    As leaders we have likely cultivated our own change hardiness, which may be one of the reasons we have risen...Continue reading

    Three Tough Decisions All International Managers Face

    How often should an international manager rely on corporate norms?
