All the best to infinity & beyond

Embracing the spirit of unity and practicing meaningful collaboration, repeated over many generations, could become helpful habits for those who will make that very long journey, some generations from now. Every small action in this direction helps, and perhaps at some point in the distant future, those in front of us will look back and express their gratefulness for the way we led our lives and interacted with each other.

Frauen, fast eine Liebeserklärung

I could not help but think about the actress’s backstory, that only a few in the audience were aware of. 25 years earlier, I sat at her family’s dining room table, in a small Black Forest village, listening to Angela’s parents encourage her to pursue a real career, something more stable and traditional, something to fall back on if this acting fantasy did not materialize. Yet her passion, resilience, and determination to follow her instincts were already strong, even with the uncertain road ahead of her.

Must-Win Battle Scorecard

Last week I shared questions that help leadership teams reflect on their business performance, lessons learned, and missed opportunities. Here’s a highly effective framework that leadership teams can use to address and review their must-win battles.

Executive teams often know what they want. yet miss opportunities to transform themselves and their business because they are unwilling to address what the need. Here are six questions executive teams (or people that support them) can use to get at what they need to play at their best, rather than settling for what is comfortable or what they want.

Keeping Secrets is Bad for Business

There is nothing to be ashamed of by asking for help. When we pretend to be perfect, hide our imperfections, and discourage people from giving us feedback and ideas to improve, we lose followers and our ability to influence people.

How do you use your prime time?

Priming is the conscious act of creating space and adjusting our thoughts and emotions to our best state. How do you make the most of your prime time? Here are some priming triggers to help you create highly effective leadership off-sites.

Make Your Lack of Experience a Strength

Have you ever wanted to apply for a new role, approach a new challenge, or even step into a new industry, yet were unsure how to defend your lack of direct experience? All of us have a unique and special set of skills and experiences that we bring as an outsider. Don’t let being outsider be perceived as a liability, use your experiences and imagination to create your own rationale about what you bring to both inside and outside situations.
