Managing Complexity – A Leadership Checklist
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Oct, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the CEO of a Silicon Valley High Tech company. We had an enlightening coaching conversation, that revolved around how leading people and organizations today is much more complicated today than just a few years ago. Economic uncertainty and globalization, along with innovative technologies provides leaders constant challenges to successf...
Leaders: Embrace Being Wrong
by Andy Robinson - Oct, 2011
True leadership sometimes means owning up to the idea of admitting you’re wrong. Consider this .... If you've done a great job of surrounding yourself with incredible team members, it's important to understand that they MAY have better ways of doings things or breakthrough ideas to consider. Hopefully, they WILL have better ideas and unique and (possibly) more powerful ways of handling problems and formulating winning sol...
Turning Employees Around—What It Takes | Feedback Power
by Dawn Lennon - Sep, 2011
Under-performers are part of the landscape in any workplace. You know who they are and so does your boss. None of us is perfect. Without guidance, it’s easy to adopt behaviors and habits acceptable to us that, ultimately, don’t wear well with others. As employees we need feedback from day one. There is no better (or cheaper) way to teach us the skills and behaviors we need to be successful. Performance feedback is one...
An Employee Funk Rescue Tactic–Watch ‘Em Work. | Tailored Motivation
by Dawn Lennon - Sep, 2011
Motivating employees should be high on a supervisor’s to-do list. Too often, though, what’s tried falls flat. Not every employee needs or wants: A go-team pep talk Artery-clogging donuts at staff meetings Certificates for weekly productivity achievements Public praise for a job well done (Many dread this) Brown bag lunches with the boss That said, employees do want and need reasons to stay motivated. No easy form...
How Becoming the Boss Can Change You
by Dawn Lennon - Sep, 2011
Faults are often easier to see in others than ourselves. As employees we’re daily observers and targets of our supervisor’s style. What we see reflects what our supervisors have become. If we’re lucky, we’ve got a good boss. If not, we’d like to run for the hills. It’s hard to believe that ineffective supervisors used to be regular employees, like us. They had the same expectations from their own bosses for: - Hones...
Trickle Down Leadership
by Suzanne Bates - Sep, 2011
Unless you have a small business, and by that I basically mean you, your dog and your thoughts, you have to communicate the big picture to other people. Your vision has to do more than trickle down; it needs to flow. Sounds simple. Until you become a leader and you realize how hard it really is. The other day my husband and I decided to try out a new restaurant. I called around noon for a 6 pm reservation. There was...
Employee Engagement - Does Your Organization Employ Zombies?
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Aug, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. We talked about how some of his employees were actively disengaged. My executive coaching client and I discussed how to motivate and energize his workforce. I am coaching my client to create a more positive workplace culture that will fully engage his people. Does your organization have...
Leaders: An Idea to Kickstart the Week
by Andy Robinson - Aug, 2011
I have a couple of executive coaching clients who share a great Monday morning habit -- one that really sets the tone for a positive week. It's a great way to kickstart the week and inspire your team members. It involves four simple steps: 1.Write down the names of all of your direct reports on a blank piece of paper -- no particular order, just a simple list with a few blank lines between each name. 2.For each person o...
The Trust Voucher
by Steve Farber - Mar, 2011
Unfortunately, the word “empowerment” has, for many, become nothing more than a tired, old cliche–something that I’ve been teasing people about for years. Even though the value of empowerment is, ostensibly, conventional wisdom by now, it’s still the rare leader that does it and does it well. Most get caught up in a faulty, self-sabotaging thought process that goes something like this: Empowerment = I give them control =...
Developing Executive Presence – What Really Matters
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Feb, 2011
I’ve received a noticeable increase in requests from companies and law firms seeking help for high potential leaders to improve their “executive presence”. When I inquire into what they mean by executive presence I get very different responses. I seek clarification by asking the HR Director or potential executive coaching client to describe the leader’s current behavior and what cultivating more executive presence would look...
