Executive Team Building – Establishing A Team Direction
by Shari Roth - Sep, 2011
One of the major roles of executive leadership is to build solid teams. Executive team building for results is grounded in knowing and understanding the direction of the team.

Back to the Future: Recruiting Circa 2020
by Lou Adler - Jul, 2011
As I ponder the future of where our industry is headed, I’m reminded of Geoffrey Moore’s technology adoption curve, from his fine book, Crossing the Chasm. It describes how users (aka “buyers”) of technology follow a predictable adoption rate, generally based on their comfort with the technology and their ability to implement change. It’s not surprising that technology, especially the use of advanced business networking to...

Dick Nettell, Extreme Leader
by Steve Farber - Apr, 2011
Yesterday, I had a long talk with my old friend (and constant source of leadership inspiration), Dick Nettell. Dick had a long and storied career at Bank of America where his results and style were legendary. I mentioned in an earlier post that he’s in the process of writing a book, and he’s told me that I’ll be getting the rough draft, soon. But in the meantime… …Since I wrote about Dick as a semi-anonymous example in The Ra...

We forget that performance reviews are about feedbac...
