Resilient Relationships

Leaders who won’t share where they struggle, feel reluctant to critic a part of the business outside of their scope, or fail to give a senior colleague feedback when it’s needed, are signs that resilient relationships are missing, meaning this team will struggle, which means everyone else in the organization will as well.

The Sacred Intersection

The performance appraisal is the single most important meeting of the year because it is the “sacred intersection” that connects the talent, effort, aspirations, and growth of your people with the organizational strategy and future of the company. Recognizing and honoring this “sacred intersection” is fundamental to people engagement and organizational success. You cannot fake it and simply go through the motions. It demands that you make an ownershift.

Why Cartoons Captivate Us

It is flattering to have a cartoon created about the work that I do, but instead of blowing the horn of self-promotion, let’s unpack the work of Ted Teo. Ted’s an expert podcaster and understands that the cartoon format harnesses two powerful communication intensifiers, one being that a cartoon tells a story. All too often people rattle of statistics without tying it to a story. While facts tell us what happened, a story tells us why it matters. Secondly, a cartoon is visual, and our brain processes visual content 60,000 times faster than text messages. We all know the saying, “a picture is work a thousand words” yet only the master communicators put this into practice.

Who Decides from Santa’s Chair?

An executive team discovered that they were spending too much time in Santa’s chair, instead of letting the right key players in the business take the chair and make the call.

Overstuffing Your Stategy?

More is not always better. Adding new initiatives to your strategic agenda before having the difficult conversations about what to take out, leads to an overstuffed strategy that does not perform.

Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win

Many people are trying to manage too much, afraid to let go or simply say no. Instead of managing a few things well, they struggle and stress with many things, none which is done exceptionally well. This fear of letting go can infect people, teams, and entire organizations. Here’s how to let go of what’s holding you and your team back so you can focus on what really matters.

Engulfed in Escalations?

Are you engulfed by escalations because others ask you how do things or to take on uncomfortable tasks instead of developing their own ideas and actions? Here are three ways to ensure that you aren’t on the receiving end of every escalation that comes your way.

Magnetize Your Strategy

Strategy often stumbles because it is a collection of complicated facts and initiatives that are confusing and difficult to follow. Craft a strategy that tells a story about helping customers and creating value for others and you have got foundation for an emotionally compelling strategy. Logic and facts encourage us to think, yet stories evoke emotions that compel us to act.
