On "Culture" - “You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means”.

Leadership Values



When the new year begins the lists come out and it's always time to see who views what as "winners", "losers", and/or what's in store for the next twelve months or so.



The other thing that happens, at least for me, is that this time of year makes you think of where things have been, what's changed, and what worked and what didn't. It also makes me… Continue

I truly appreciate the kind words of the community and the generosity of this contest's benefactor.



I thought it would be interesting to share a brief back-story on how the piece evolved.

Why Employers don't take Ownership?

Imagine you were witness to the following scenes:



The employee at the photocopier is half way down his copying when he encounters a paper jam. The employee moves to another machine instead of getting this one fixed.



It is 6.00 pm in the evening and the client deliverable is far from ready to ship and the consequences of delay are serious. The team leader responsible for the project gives the team members a few instructions but is the first to leave.
