I read an excellent article in the Wall Street Journal this week entitled “How Jeffrey Immelt’s ‘Success Theater’ Masked the Rot at GE.” In it, authors Thomas Gryta, Joann Lublin, and David Benoit describe how the Immelt and his top leaders, “projected an optimism about GE’s business and its future that didn’t always match the […]

You know that your team is conflict avoidant. You know it’s preventing you from surfacing issues, thoroughly discussing them, and getting them resolved effectively. You really want to make it better, but how do you start? The people on your team (and maybe even your boss) are seriously unwilling to broach any subject that might […]

I’m working on a new keynote speech and a new book. To accelerate the process, I enrolled in a 4-session, 16-day public speaking program to hone the big idea, write a compelling speech, and learn how to deliver the speech in a way that will knock your socks off. The mantra of the program’s instructor […]

I was listening while a group of executives spoke about how to make their organization more agile. What was interesting, was that most of their comments referred to the speed they needed to move, rather than to their agility. I think it’s important to understand the difference between speed and agility because they serve different […]

Imagine that you need additional resources to finish your project on time. Or you’re lobbying to get your choice in a procurement process. Or you want the design of a new product to go a certain way. You need to influence the outcome of a decision and you think to yourself “I’ve got this one!” […]

You make decisions each and every day about what is the most important priority for your team. At least I hope you do. But I’m starting to worry that many managers aren’t making these decisions. Instead, they’re waiting to make a decision until it’s clear which one single thing is the most important. They’re waiting […]
