You know what I think about achieving goals? Everyone has a passion for something, a powerful, compelling drive to achieve a goal. If you're passionate about something, you're willing to fight for it. You don't take "no" for an answer and you won't let anything stand in your way. The fight can be a hard one or easy depending on the process you employ in realizing your passion.

You know what I think about change management? There are a number of change management theories and processes “on the books” today. And each and every one are more or less just variations of Kurt Lewin's foundational three phase change process of unfreezing, transitioning, and refreezing. In this podcast, I share various techniques manager's utilize in carrying out Lewin's change model.

But first, I follow-up ... Read more

Hypercompetition is a state of perpetual change in the rules of competition within an industry. Since these rules are in a constant state of flux, organizations can't sustain competitive advantage forcing them to vigorously and continuously compete in cost and quality, timing and know-how, strongholds and market invasion, and the deep pockets of competitors. Requiring a constant reinventing of competitive advantage, an organ... Read more

You know what I think about strategy? In this episode I share some thoughts on developing business strategy. Sun Tzu taught us centuries ago that gaining a competitive advantage comes during the planning stage, not with the execution of the plan. For once the plan is put in motion, our strategy becomes apparent.

I'm also very excited also introduce a new podcast I've published with a friend and former colleague fr... Read more

You know what I think about Leadership and Management? You lead people and you manage things. This is the accepted axiom and implies that leadership and management go hand-in-hand. Management is a function and deals with supervision and exercising control, while leadership is about relationships, influence, and inspiration. In order to successfully develop and implement a corporate strategy, a leader must first be an effective m... Read more

You know what I think about independent publishing? Book publishing is a process that includes acquisition, copy editing, production, printing (physical or digital), marketing, and distribution. Until recently, this was accomplished by publishing companies that accept manuscripts from writers, usually through an agent, and carry out the publication process, paying the author a royalty from the book’s sales. These arrangements of... Read more

You know what I think about drug addiction? Drug addiction is a devastating illness that wrecks lives and families, but unless the issue touches us personally we don't see it, do we? It doesn't really affect us, right? Wrong. Almost 15 million Americans suffer from addiction and 11 million of them are gainfully employed--they work for us. And we may never know it because they're afraid. Afraid of losing their jobs, t...

You know what I think about the hiring process? If you do a Google search for "how to hire the right people" you'll find a plethora of posts on leadership qualities and attributes, but there's not a lot of process-oriented information. There’s a lot of advice for job candidates, but if you’re a hiring authority, well, we just never really got a lot of training, did we? During the course of my career, I’ve hired h... Read more

From time-to-time, you’ll find me reminiscing about my days in the Air Force. This is one of those times. I can remember working as a young Airman in an Air Force hospital when the announcement came down that the Health Services Inspection would occur within the next month. The Health Services Inspection or HSI is a medical compliance inspection conducted jointly by the AF Inspector General and the Joint Commission. Anyway, for ... Read more

Health care today is complicated and highly-complex with a mountain of rules and regulations that govern practically every aspect of the doctor-patient relationship. The real challenge for doctors today is that their culture—the physician culture—hasn’t really changed. Physicians are at the top of the health care hierarchy and are the ones ultimately accountable for patient outcomes, and yet they’re almost treated as commodities... Read more

You know what I think about personal growth? In the business world today, the words “mentor” and “coach” are very common, and they’re often used interchangeably. Although both are extremely valuable resources, in reality, they couldn’t be more different, there is a distinction between the two that make them as different as night and day. A mentor is an advisor, someone who is successful in his role, and readily shares his knowle... Read more

You know what I think about project management? Historically speaking, project management was around long before it was known as "project management". Although we don’t know exactly how the pyramids of Egypt were constructed, we do know the Pharaoh had managers overseeing their construction. It wasn’t until the early 20th century that we started to explore Project Management as a formal scientific process. Since then it’... Read more

You know what I think about conflict? People don’t stop being people at work. And because people are people conflict is inevitable. Conflict is the natural result of human interaction that begins when one member of the organization believes his or her goals, values, needs, or attitudes are incompatible with those of other members of the organization. Conflict can arise within a member, between two members, or between groups of t... Read more

You know what I think about Momentum? Mark Twain once said “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” The frog in this quote represents the one thing you have on your to-do list that you have absolutely no motivation to do. The biggest frog would be the most important of two undesirable tasks. If you don't eat... Read more

You know what I think about legacy computer systems? Legacy systems are always on the chopping block because there is a seemingly never-ending cascade of new technology designed to make business more profitable and our lives easier. Moore's Law would suggest that IT used to build systems today is superior to yesterday’s technology. However, new is not always better. Certainly, today’s IT is smaller and faster, but that doesn...
