Is it Time to Say it Differently?

Do you ever feel like no one is listening? Like you are Charlie Brown’s teacher, wah, wah, wah, wah?
It might be time to imagine you are a baseball pitcher and change things up.
In their book, Made to Stick, Authors Chip and Dan Heath say, “The most basic way to get someone’s attention is this: Break a pattern.”
[Tweet ““The most basic way to get someone’s attention is to break a pattern.” – Chip & Dan Heath”]
Is there a message in your organization that feels tired and worn? If so, today is the day to say it in a new way.

My First Periscope Experience

Periscope provides the platform for instant access to a global audience. How will this latest new technology impact your leadership? If you haven’t thought about it seriously, today is a great day to start.

If You Can't Communicate, You Can't Lead (Part 1)

The longer I lead the more I’m convinced, communication is perhaps the most difficult aspect of leadership. I know this may seem strange. Even as I write this, I am asking myself, “Can this be right?” It seems like vision, strategy, competition, even people, would all top the list of what makes leadership challenging.

Talk is Cheap… Change is Hard

Leaders are paid to create change. Our vision calls for change, the journey is about change, people ultimately have to change – new priorities require new behaviors, the culture often has to change, the success metrics usually have to change, and the leader always has to change, too. Can you orchestrate changes like these?

Growing a "Small" Company

Have you ever noticed how often the counter-intuitive strategy, or the contrarian view yields the best return? If you’ve not thought about this, maybe today’s post will help. One example is our attempt to grow a small company. Clearly, most leaders are trying to grow a large company – the bigger the better. But what would happen if you could grow a small one?

Today's Challenge: Advice

Each week, I respond to a question from a reader. In doing so, by default, I’m giving advice. I understand the risk inherent in this –I don’t know your situation. So, rather than offer direct advice, I’ve often deferred to sharing my personal experience or best practices I’ve learned from others. Today is different. The question I’ve been asked to answer is this: What advice do you have for me as a younger leader?
