Pattern Recognition

Pattern Recognition

In business – as well as our personal lives – we focus on success. We would argue that we should focus more on failures and accepting them. This is your professional journey – you started it, chose it. Most of us move forward by sheer force of will … until that no longer works. We move forward with our best asset – a sharp mind, a winning smile, being politically savvy, whatever. Until those no longer work. How about we try this again. Celebrated Author and Board Advisor Todd Wilms is innately curious about transition into something new – new job, new company, new role, new location, or just a new you. It’s all new – no person ever enters the same river twice. New river and new you.

Perception goes beyond daily aphorisms or other “surface” tactics to boost your mood. Perceptional changes happen deep within you, may take some time, and open new and refreshing possibilities for leaders.

If a person believes that leaders should be stoic, show no weakness, and always “game on,”...

My first challenging leader was for my paper route (if you don’t know what it is, ask your parents) when I was ten years old. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop there. Whether it is a new boss looking to make their mark, bad hiring decisions, lack of an appropriate talent pool, or just lack of training, challenging leaders are widespread. There are positive challenges to help you, your team, and your company grow; there are negative cha...

If you were alive in the 90s, you invariably heard the Barenaked Ladies “If I had a Million Dollars.” The last line of the song is “I’d be rich.” The crazy thing is, for most people, you might move that goal and get more. It’s not only money; it can be partners, accolades, material possessions, body image, etc. Once we reach a goal, we start thinking about the next goal. This is especially true of goal-oriented people. If this “mov...

Great leaders see market opportunities that others do not. They see around corners, find and build a great team, and can even collaborate with passionate (and sometimes challenging) leaders around them. In short, they see what others do not. Let’s become great leaders and see Imposter Syndrome in a way that others do not - as an asset. Like so many obstacles, roadblocks, and challenges in our lives, we see them as a detriment or a ...

Business leaders need a whole new set of tools to be successful. It is no longer good enough to have expertise in your discipline. Leaders need interpersonal skills, empathy, awareness, and 3rd party objectivity to see the blind spots in all of us. Simply put, Pattern Recognition is the blend of business acumen and psychology that makes leaders great. If you want to be the very best, understanding your personal biases and obstacles...
