UntitledIs it Time For a Company Renaissance?: Calling all Michelangelos, Galileos and Isabella D’Estes!

I don’t know about you, but I’m sensing a bit of a rebirth. I’m seeing the long pink line of the horizon on the eastern sky, and I’m detecting a bit of hopefulness. I’m definitely seeing a sense of urgency to leave the Dark Ages of the past few years behind and an enthusiastic catapult into the Renaissance of the twenty-teens. It’s time. Especially since, in the latter part of 2011, Gallup reported…

Untitled Increasing Genuineness to Engender Trust : Balancing the “I Message” with Empathy

I think it’s amazing that people actually study trust. Personally, I’m not the lab coat type, but I think I might actually like this research project where we project an hypothesis about why someone might or might not trust someone else and then test it out—this is my kind of study!Frankly, I didn’t need to do the studies, but I’m glad…

UntitledA Little Less Kerfuffle?

After only seven days in London, I was happy to have successfully navigated The Tube, I could recognize the difference between the boroughs of South Kensington and Chelsea, and I had even begun to decipher the many mysteries of the Queen’s English. I was hanging out in London’s swankiest neighborhoods feeling like an American guest star in Bridget Jones’s Diary, and I realized (realised?) that I hadn’t spent time with any other Americans for nearly…

UntitledRecognize—Or Else!: The Power of Acknowledgement

I went to management boot camp. Seriously, we all dressed alike, had to do pushups under duress, and took cold showers to wake up at reveille. Oh, alright, it wasn’t really like that—it was my first time as a manager and management training just seemed like boot camp. One of the most memorable lessons I learned was in a class with an instructor who was a cross between a fire and brimstone preacher and Garrison Keillor, his voice rising and falling as he paced the front of the room. A particular story I remember him telling was about a wonderful…

UntitledHow to Let Them Go: Yes! Advice From Atticus

Okay, I have a confession to make-I was terminated. Not fired or let go or not renewed. Not RIFed or pink-slipped. Terminated. In the midst of an organizational restructure, I got tossed out with the rest of the superfluous positions, the additional managerial poundage put on in leaner times. This had never happened to me before, and no matter how much I believed that it couldn’t be helped and was for all the right reasons and had nothing to do with

UntitledTell Me What You Want: Specificity Breeds Contentment

In the summer between my 8th grade year and high school, we found out that my dad was going to be transferred yet again to a new location. The whole lot of us had to pack up our bags, boxes and pets and trek across the country to go live in Richmond, Kentucky. I was horrified, dramatic, and threw myself on my twin bed in the basement sure my life was over—what kind of music did they have down there? Would I make any friends now that I would have to start high school without my junior high buddies? Little did I know my eight years in Kentucky would bring me lots of interesting experiences and intriguing journeys…

Untitled R-E-S-P-E-C-T… Find Out What It Means to Me!: 6 Ways to Impact the Respect-Factor at Work

Respect in the workplace is a key component of meeting organizational goals—typically related to customer service, retention, profits, productivity, innovation, morale, creativity, etc. I haven’t met anyone yet who’s suggested that working in a respect-free workplace is on their list of priorities for choosing a job. Everybody, I mean everybody, wants respect. And this isn’t just about being nice or wearing some politically correct t-shirt—we know that when a work environment has evidence of…

UntitledRaising the Bar: Setting Expectations for Excellence

When I was in high school, I was a member of the track team and most specifically, a high jumper. I don’t remember now how I became interested in this, or why, but there I was doing the Fosbury Flop with the other teenage athletes. Back then, I was pretty good at it and even won the regional medal my junior year to advance to the state competition. It was very exciting!When I arrived near the pit on the day of the big event, I was dwarfed by…

UntitledTriple Booked is Gridlock: You Ain’t Going Nowhere.

No matter what, all leaders are feeling the pressure of the current economic climate—we want more market share, more visibility, and greater differentiation, even with just a whisper of results. The temptation is to work longer, harder, faster because we imagine if we can just hold out for a bit longer, we’ll have this crisis licked. We’re escalating at warp speed working into the wee hours, but funny thing, it doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. Tempted to double- and triple-book your calendar?
