The Simplest Way to be Great

I’ve spent many years observing and learning from great people. Some of them are high profile, but most are the opposite. The difference between authentically great people who are high profile, and those who are low profile, depends only upon media interest. They are great not because of what they do – that is a […]

Why is Employee Engagement Still an Issue?

I’ve had a Google alert on employee engagement in operation now for eighteen months and consequently have seen almost 100% of all news, article and blogs captured by Google in that time. Here’s what I’ve noticed: Everything everyone suggests to deal with employee engagement has been captured in Herzberg’s Dual Theory for about five decades. […]

Leaders: Start Right Now

Whether you’ve just started as a leader or the leader, or you’ve already been there for a while – start right now. Yes it has a multiple meaning, start right; start again but right; and now. Why? Because you can, and yesterday is past, tomorrow never comes, but now is always here. And because you […]

The Danger of Technology in the Workplace

We are obsessed with technology. Digital, online, in the cloud solutions for everything are available for almost every conceivable function. There are apps for everything – almost.

High Value Conversations

I sat with my CEO client in a cafe overlooking the beautiful cityscape of Perth. He was deeply concerned about his company’s situation. Steeply falling sales, disenchanted employees and diminishing cash flow were taking a toll on his health and his ability to lead his people through the troubles. “Tom, (not his real name) can […]

Corporate Culture, Leadership and the Law of Gravity

Corporate Culture is critically important – it impacts on performance, innovation, productivity and profitability. The culture of the corporation is merely the sum of the attitudes of the people in it. To alter the culture requires altering the individuals’ attitudes. That requires effective leadership where setting the example is the chief means. After all, the […]

How Not to Cut Costs

This public listed subsidiary of the global giant was ordered to cut costs by 15% by the end of the quarter. Not only was that order given, it had this condition attached – it must be across all aspects of the company. The company had already pared expenses and were operating on what they believed […]

Why Aren’t More Leaders Embracing Social Media?

Leaders are communicators, influencers and persuaders, yet apparently not via social media. Despite the vast number of other people, including the very people the leaders most wish to influence, using social media frequently, leaders aren’t there yet. I’ve seen various sometimes conflicting statistics, infographics and articles about this anomaly. There are some outstanding and high […]

Leadership Development Must be Practical

The programs that abound for “Leadership Development” should be split into those that deal with managing and those that deal with leading. Whilst it is true that today’s leaders must also manage and vice versa, we still need to separate the two, in my opinion, for one simple reason. I think management is the greatest […]
