  Tick, Tick, Tick
by Karen Burns - Nov, 2009
Doncha hate meetings? Most do. But even though they’re often an enormous waste of time, meetings still happen in every business, every day. Consider these ways to make meetings shorter. Some are so obvious it hurts. Some are sort of mean. Only hold a meeting if it’s really necessary. Duh. But how many completely useless meetings have you been to? Start on time. Punish latecomers. Charge them a buck. Make th...

  You Can Survive the Micromanager
by Amanda Guralski - Nov, 2009
Get your boss to lighten up You find yourself wondering during your workday why you are preparing yet another seemingly useless report. Or your boss is in your cubicle a dozen times a day for weeks on end, and you’re not even currently working on a tight deadline. Or your manager seems obsessed about how you do you job and not about the quality of your work or your results. Lastly, your manager seems to want to control y...

Your team probably thought everything was goi...
  Speak like a CEO: The Wisdom of a Chinese Proverb
by Suzanne Bates - Oct, 2009
This week I've been thinking about that saying, 'lead by example'. The origin of this well-worn standard is a Chinese proverb, yi shen zuo ze, which means 'to set a good example,' or 'set yourself as the standard.' For thousands of years people have known that a leader's actions must match his or her words. As I have discussed in the 8 principles of Motivate like a CEO, great leaders walk the talk. But is that enough?...

This week I was in Dallas at the Network of Executive women, to deliver a workshop on Storytelling for Business Leaders. We talked about how to become a great storyteller and share leadership lessons through those stories. You wouldn’t believe the number of executives who came up to me afterword to tell me this is exactly what their companies are asking them to do. Top companies have come to embrace the idea that their le...
  Training Leaders to Handle Uncertainty: Moving from Knowing to Not Knowing
by Gary Cohen - Oct, 2009
When the Dow Jones industrial average goes from over 14,000 to under 7,000 in roughly a year's time, not much is certain. Will your chief supplier survive the credit crunch? Will customers return to their old spending habits or continue to conserve? Is another industry primed for a crash? Our government has shown far-reaching power—rescuing companies it deemed too big to fail and letting others succumb to market forces. Wil...
  Seven Secrets of Successful Managers

Successful managers aren’t perfect. Successful managers do get more done, get better results, and have lower retention rates than unsuccessful managers. I don’t know all the secrets of being a successful manager, but I do know seven secrets that can help you be a more successful manager. Successful managers... 1) Are comfortable being themselves – Know who you are, and be comfortable with that. Know who you’re not, and b...
  The Power of Stories
by David Lee - Oct, 2009
How do you keep your workers inspired, determined, and confident in the face of change, challenge and uncertainty? One of the things you do—especially if you’re a business owner or senior level leader—is to tell stories. Not just any story. You need to tell the kind of stories that leaders at great companies like Ritz Carlton, Southwest Airlines, Nordstrom, and FedEx tell. They tell stories about the great things...
  Managing a Critical Aggressor: Case Example
by Mark Gorkin - Sep, 2009
Let’s try a mind exercise. You’ve just given a presentation at an important meeting. As the meeting concludes you turn to a colleague (a casual acquaintance) and ask, “How did the presentation go?” And in a decidedly judgmental and unfriendly tone this colleague declares, “Frankly, you fumbled the data. Obviously, you didn’t prepare very well!” Imagine being the presenter. How would you feel receiving such critical fee...
