  • Your Behaviors Build Your Brand Promise
    As a leader, how much of your behavior is based on careful, thought out decisions? How much is spontaneous reaction? It’s an important question, as leaders are primarily known for how they act, especially in tough and trying situations. This goes both positively and negatively. The leaders I know who ... read more

  • Are you looking forward to 2021?
    This has certainly been an “interesting” year. You know what that means, don’t you? Interesting is a clever euphemism for just plain terrible, troubling, turbulent, and torrential. The year of 2020 is the gift that keeps on giving. We have had a pandemic, politics in a fractious environment, riots, ... read more

  • What’s Your Story?: Your Individual Brand Promise
    During the many years that I spent waiting in airport lines, I frequently found myself playing the game, “What’s Your Story?” You know the one: you try and guess a person’s profession or position based on how they look and act. Based on the reading and conversations I’ve had ... read more

  • Check Your Mindset
    I’m sure you’ve noticed that for some leaders, identity is defined from the outside-in, and requires external validation in one of three ways: relationship strength, intellect, or results. I think this is partly due to cultural messaging that occupation determines identity, and productivity indicates value. Technology often reinforces this mindset. ... read more

  • Mastering Leadership: Lead with Intention
    Leaders are facing unprecedented levels of stress, dysfunction and disappointments, taxing their energy and productivity. Some leaders have even shared with me that keeping up with the chaos has become an acceptable achievement. But great leaders are strategic about their time and energy. They lead with intention. You see, ... read more

  • Hone Your Attention to Master Leadership
    One of the problems people have in mastering leadership is the tyranny of the urgent—it’s difficult to think about the future and where you want to go when you’re focused on staying afloat. But when you hone your attention, you keep that from happening. It’s how great leaders focus ... read more

  • Create a Framework to Master Leadership
    As a leader, what does it take for you to be successful, and have the career and life you really want? From what I’ve seen, I believe we need to create a framework for clarity. I introduced this in my last post. You see, clarity of mind stands as ... read more

    In the organizations where I consult, I remind leaders that even the strongest, most talented people have flaws and weaknesses. Since the most damaging leadership liabilities have to do with the inability to work well with their people, leaders benefit best by making effective relationships a priority.
