Memo to Leaders

This extract from Susan Scott’s Book Fierce leadership tickled me.  It’s frank, it’s funny and it’s real—a 10 point memo to today’s leaders.  The only piece if advice not made explicit is this; get a coach.  A confidential thinking partner to help you navigate the complexity of 21st century leadership.  We all deserve some straight-talk on the challenges that leadership demands of us.  […]

The Creative Art of Leadership

I was once married to a writer.  It was not said explicitly but it was regularly inferred—he was the creative one—the artist—and I, as a pursuer of  business, was the facts-figures-hard-core thinker. I knew it then and I am certain of it now—business is a creative pursuit. All businesses are dynamic, moving, growing (or shrinking), in a constant change of flux dependent on market conditions, resources, capital and the like.  We, as leaders are the artists, the creators of the responses our businesses make and take in order to succeed.   Our canvas is the marketplace, our palette is our people and our creativity is our own intellect.  […]

Too much evidence Points to the Positive

All strengths can be overdone and it’s no a surprise to hear that on one of my client’s properties, people are starting to get irked by overdone positive messages.  Of course, a dose of reality is important to temper the message but, before you throw out all your coaches and motivational influencers, take a look at the early research that propositions the notion that when you think and feel positively, positive things happen; […]
