Will your team follow you? An organization’s many stakeholders value strong decisive leadership.  We see the decisive leader as someone who gets things done and makes things happen.

Unrest is building [...]

October 1st, 2018|0 Comments

Many organizations treat middle management as a Darwinian proving ground by making a minimal investment and then waiting to see who survives. Meanwhile, the best development tools such as executive coaching, action learning task teams, and high fidelity simulations, are reserved for senior leaders and a select group of high potentials. These are often expensive and the size of their [...]

The Risks of Either-Or Thinking

June 12th, 2018|0 Comments

Either-or thinking is a trap we can easily fall into that encourages us to believe there is only one right behavior and it blinds us to the opportunities of a more balanced, albeit more paradoxical, approach. Life is full of light-hearted paradoxical sayings: slow down to speed up, tough love, stability through change, and more. Most leaders easily understand that these behaviors sound like opposites ends of a continuum but are really very complimentary. We know there can be great benefits in using “both” [...]
