Lockheed Martin: Research Comes First

I have always preached research comes first with regards to staffing, and sourcing in particular. You have to know what you are looking for and know what companies have what you are looking for.

The Alternative to Strategic Planning

Like a computer with a well functioning operating system, companies that perform exceptionally well year after year have a well planned Renewable Operating System (ROS). Better than a strategic plan, an ROS creates a better way of doing business with speed, agility, and reduced effort, similar to the powerful processors in today’s technical devices.

The first step I initiate with every leader with whom I work to create an ROS starts with the current “code.” Just like rewriting an…

Being Grateful and Unsatisfied

While I’m all for being grateful, especially being mindful of this during this week’s American Thanksgiving celebration, I’m not too keen on satisfaction. Satisfaction can become a trap that keeps you cemented to your doorstep, allowing competitors to grab the glory, the gusto, and even some of your market share.

One of my favorite examples of this is when I asked a workshop participant, who was resistant to ideas for improving her company, if she was satisfied with her current…

Avoiding Leadership Dependence

Last week I watched a common example of one individual serving as the intellect and conscience for another. It happened at Publix, our local grocery store, where my 17-year-old son Benjamin decided to apply for a job. Standing at the application kiosk was a couple, painfully going through the questions, discussing and debating each response. The woman, who was the one applying for a job, was insecure answering the questions on her own, instead, running each one by “her man” as she referred…
