Today's Challenge: Mentoring That Works

Virtually every week, I respond to a question submitted by a reader. I call the series Today’s Challenge. If you’re interested in past questions, and my responses, I’ve created a category on the sidebar to help you find these posts. Today’s question is: How do you make mentoring work?

Four Ways to Stimulate Growth in Others

Engaging and developing others is one of our primary roles as a leader. For some of  us this comes very naturally and for others it is a discipline that must be cultivated. Regardless of the ease or rigor required, the leaders we admire the most figure this out.

Advice for High Potential Leaders

This week I am attending the i4cp (Institute for Corporate Productivity) conference in Phoenix, Arizona. Thus far, we’ve heard from practitioners, academics and authors.

Today's Challenge: Success

Success is a lousy teacher. The best leaders know this and are always on guard against complacency. This week’s question comes from a leader who has just completed a season of success. She is concerned her team won’t stay motivated. Today’s Challenge: How do you keep your team fully engaged in the wake of success?

Here Today – Gone Tomorrow?

I Was a Lousy Student

I met my wife in 11th grade; we were in Trigonometry together. I’m glad I was there; however, I shouldn’t have been. It became obvious fairly quickly that I was in over my head. Our first ever conversation occurred while looking at the results of our first test. I made a 16… Donna made a 96! She asked me how I got a 16 – I said, “I think they gave me points for getting my name right.”

One Word…Why?

This is the next installment in a series in which I explore some key words in a leader’s world. So far, we covered Data and Vision. Today, another simple word that doubles as a powerful question: Why?

Over Deliver

In a competitive world, how do you and I distinguish ourselves as leaders? If you’ve been reading my work for long, you know I believe being a servant leader is a great place to start. The world is starving for outstanding leadership.
