However, the execution of these concepts generally takes on a much less inspiring form–the Meeting. You know that when you see a meeting invitation pop up, your first thought is not, “Wow, what an excellent opportunity to collaborate with other folks and share ideas!” More than likely, you echo...
  • Some Thoughts on Recognition for Blue-Collar Workers
    by Kris Dunn - May 24, 2017
    Recognition. We've been trained to believe that everyone needs it. Do they? I think so, but something that's lost in the recognition/engagement market is that for many blue collar workers, getting recognition in front of their peers actually makes them feel Blue collarlike a dork/brown-noser. Some notes from my life follow... My dad, Kent Dunn (RIP CKD), was a lifetime telephone/telecom lineman. One of the gr...
  • Why Leaders Need Term Limits
    by Marshall Goldsmith - May 24, 2017
    Normally, successful people are highly committed to their work. Here is the problem: the more committed we are to a given path the harder it is for us to admit when it’s time to leave. This is why leaders need term limits – it is often just too difficult for them to set these for themselves. I have had the privilege of working with more than 120 CEOs. I’ve also had the unfortunate privilege of working with...

    by Louise Garver - May 23, 2017
    Writing eye-catching resume bullet points for your management resume aren’t a want. But, an ABSOLUTE need. This is where many managers go wrong when writing their resumes.

    by Sara Canaday - May 23, 2017

But making that sometimes-subtle shift is essential for the success of your career and your organization. There’s a lot at stake. So what’s the real difference between management and leadership?

  • Authenticity: A Crucial Skill for Changing Times
    by Carole Kanchier - May 22, 2017
    The word, 'authenticity' comes from the Greek root authentikos, meaning 'original, genuine, principal.' Authentic people are genuine, self actualizing and have a sense of purpose. Along with fearless passion and courage, they possess strong mental discipline. Authenticity does not come from title, social stature, or wealth, but rather from how we live. That is, how we go about pursuing our purpose and making a contributio...

    by Steve Farber - May 22, 2017
    The last person who had a stellar career without help from anyone whatsoever was … well … no one. So it makes no sense to lead as if the people around you never need help getting where they, and you, want them to go. In fact, just the opposite is true. If you want to create leaders who are Greater Than Yourself – and that should be your goal, by the way – then you need to express a deep belief in peop...
