Leading through change is a particularly difficult assignment. You’re expected to mobilize your team while you’re struggling to master yourself. This month, I’m conducting sessions with the leaders in a large multi-national company to help them cope with their own reactions to a major organizational transformation, to better position them to cascade the change to […]

I hear people talk about change in organizations as if it’s something new. That’s total crap. Change has been around for as long as business has. But I do think it’s fair to say that something’s different now. Change has changed. It’s more frequent, more complex, and more iterative. There are multiple changes going on […]

A couple of years ago, Craig and I were at an industry event and heard Dr. Jamie Gruman talk about Feedforward Interviewing, a technique developed by Avraham Kluger and Dina Nir.

Leaders often choose the wrong issues to get involved in. They meddle in activities that can and should be addressed by their subordinates while neglecting decisions that only they can make. Many leaders are consumed by the minutiae and out of touch with the strategic. The costs of both problems are high. Are you getting […]

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 […]

How many times have you heard someone say, “let’s just take the emotions out of this discussion?” It’s one of my favorite lines I hear in team effectiveness sessions.
