How many times have I been asked, "how can I motivate my people"?  It is question that is asked of every coach.  As a coach we typically do not give an answer because we know you are not ready to hear the truth.  And even if we were to tell it to you, you not only have a reluctance to believe it, but you also get angry with us when we say it.  And that is what Dr. Tara Peters and Dr. Cathy Bush have answered that question i...

We have all had to deal with "difficult people".  You know those people who have certain behaviors that can just annoy, unnerve, or even anger us.  We are talking about those people you just can't stand.  And they show up in a variety of ways.  Sometimes they  come directly at us with explosive anger (the "Tank") and then as soon as the blasting is over, it is over.  Or maybe it's the person who while you ar...

Change is inevitable, but in today's world change comes at us at an accelerated pace.  This means that businesses and organizations must be able to transform.  How does a business do that?  Well it starts with the leader.  There must a leader that first must transform before he business can transform.  If I were to ask you the question do you want to be a better leader, your response will probably be "yes"...but what do...

Let's be honest we have all come in contact with someone in our family or career who we just didn't did want to be around.  Perhaps it is the whiner who lets you know about all the doom and gloom and that the world is in unfair and it is all crashing down around them.  Maybe it is the martyr, you know the one who feels as if after they have done so many things for you that your response back to them is not enough and they b...

What if I told you that you can actually craft your own career?  Meaning what if you could put your passions, gifts, talents, and desires together and actually create the career you were looking for?  Would you be interested if the career you wanted could be had?  What if I told you that there is a demonstrated method that has helped students, veterans, and mid-career people get the job they had always hoped for?  But you better be...

We are living in very unique times that is for certain.  There is no one who could have prepared to see so many businesses suddenly close their doors and employees suddenly be out of work.  But that is exactly what has happened as CoVid-19 or the Coronavirus entered our world.  Many small businesses may be completely shut down...some are barely going to get by.  The U.S. Government has signaled that they are offering a stimulus pro...

Have you ever said, "I hate my job"?  Maybe you have said, "I need to make a career change".  Did you know for most people they believe that the problem with their current job or career is their boss?  Research has even pointed out the most people leave their job because of their boss.  What if I were to tell you that your job, your boss, your current career, may not be your problem?  The fact is you may be the prob...

Have you ever thought you could be an entrepreneur?  Probably.  You have either now or sometime in the past have said, "my idea could be a business".  So what stopped you?  Maybe you didn't believe your idea was good enough.  Maybe you thought, "where am I going to get the money".  Maybe the whole idea of just running your own business overwhelmed you once you started thinking about every detail it would take to...

So often we point fingers at leaders for their problems.  We will look so intently at the things we do not like about a particular leader and in the process we neglect to realize we have become arrogant believing that we "know" more, or someone else would be better suited to be in their place.  The fact is our belief that we are so smart and no so much has created a state of "Hubris" and that my friends is already s...

It has been said that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast" well if that is so true why do people spend more money on "strategy" than "culture"?  Think about this way...you can have what is considered to be a great strategy, but if your people will not implement it...it really doesn't matter.  The reality is if you have a great culture you can accomplish nearly anything in your business.  It is that simp...

Fear.  So often we do not want to admit it.  But as long as we are human we will fear.  But what about fear when it comes to leadership?  Can a leader afford to be afraid?  A leader may deny their they are afraid, but the truth is their behavior will give them away.  Because no matter how hard you try to deny it or ignore it, fear will rear it's ugly head in a variety of different ways and flush you out!

There is a variety of research out there that suggests you will have between 7 and 10 jobs in your life time.  For some more and others less.  Of all those jobs that you will take will be with the competition of the employer you are currently working for.  Job transitioning on the outset sounds like a fundamental right.  And it is true you have a right to leave your place of employment, but that doesn't mean that it will happen...

Networking is truly more are than science.  There is a tremendous difference between those who are great networkers and those that work at networking.  There are many people, perhaps you who just dread the idea of networking, or perhaps are frustrated by it, or maybe you have felt that you have tried networking face-to-face, but you just didn't get the results you wanted so you have given up on it.  Steven David Elliot Networki...

Agile is a process that allows teams to basically work independently on small pieces of a larger project.  Basically they govern themselves, work in spurts (called sprints) and are suppose to be unified on what they will work on at any given time.  But does that really work without leadership involvement?  Perhaps not as consistently well as we would like to believe.  The fact is even though in principle this all sounds well and go...

No one ever says:  “We hope to find the right person, fall hopelessly and passionately in love, have a beautiful wedding, live together for a while then let our relationship disintegrate and crash and burn in divorce”.  Yet so many relationships do disintegrate and wind up in divorce.  Why?  When we stop getting the love that we need ...we stop loving back.  And when that happens the downward destructive spiral takes the relationsh...

Yesterday is not today...well that's obvious.  So why do we believe that so many of yesterday's leadership principles will still be effective today?  The fact is when it comes to work attitudes have changed.  Jobs are plentiful and when people do not like their boss, manager, or CEO, they just leave.  This costs the business massive amounts of money.  At some point we need to look at the lowest common denominator of employe...

Have you ever been around someone you are trying to avoid?  Or maybe it is someone that you feel like you just cannot get along with?  Maybe you believe there is someone out to get your job or get you fired?  Maybe it is your boss or manager that you feel like you have to walk on egg shells around because you just "know" they are out to get you?  And any one of these feelings translates into your shoulders creeping up to yo...

Author Culture Strategist Colin Ellis talks Culture Fix for Business

In a survey of 1400 American business it was cited that 92% of executives said that cultural change was critical and a driver to increase their company's values.  Yet only 16% said their culture is where it needs to be.  It is not surprising.  When it comes to business culture we talk a good talk, but we do little to address it.  The fact is our behavior does n...

When it comes to business strategy  we are often confused.  We have a tendency to believe in myths like "Our brand is our strategy" or "Our people are our strategy" or "we do SWOT analysis", but none of those are really a strategy much less a competitive advantage.  Sometimes we jump ahead when it comes to our strategy and we decide to write a mission statement, which in reality should be about the strategy ...
