You were starting school or playing a sport. Think back to what your mother, or father told you at the time. If you were like my parents you were constantly reminded that if we did not succeed, try, try again until you did. Funny thing happened when we entered the business world. Suddenly you are told if you can’t do it safely don’t do it. If you tried something and it didn’t work then you are penalized for trying on your annual performance review. If you tried to show sings of innovation…Continue

Back in the early 70’s there was both a hit song titled I Can See Forever and a best selling book about GM titled On a Clear Day you can see General Motors. The point of the analogy can be rooted in Deming’s 6th point of quality. In this point he emphasized…Continue

Congratulations you have been designated a high performance, high potential human capital asset. You have achieved the goal of getting the corner office.

The other day I was on Facebook and under the Trending section was an article talking about the push for a boycott of the upcoming concert to benefit the group by the National Rife Association. This reported boycott was based on the assumption that the group was advocating stricter gun laws. But before I get to my concerns regarding this and its applicability to management, for those of you who don’t know what the Sandy Hook Promise is consider this.
Sandy Hook Promise is an…Continue

If you’ve just been promoted and you’re wondering how to do a good job being at the helm of a project, you first need to interact with all the members of your team. You’re only as good a leader as your team.

So, you’re ready to write a resume. You sit down and think about what it is that makes you stand out against hundreds of other candidates. Well, if the phrases “go-getter,” “hard worker,” or “self-motivated” come to mind, you may want to rethink what you’re writing.…Continue

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus…Continue

Just before the Giants claimed the World Series for the third time in five years, my colleague at Great Rated Ed Frauenheim penned an excellent piece on the Great Rated blog that I wanted to share with this community as well:
I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as I don’t have to resign.”

When have you been most confident at work, in any job?
I strongly suspect it was when you had a high level of competence in that job.
I recently had reason to recall the start of my recruitment agency career, in London twenty five years ago. I was twenty two years old. I was working in an office for the first time. I was living out of home for the first time. I was resident in a country that was not my own. I was in a job that I had zero previous experience in…Continue
