The words leader and boss may have pretty similar dictionary definitions—but in the business worlds, their practical distinctions are crucial. Just think about their connotations. Most of us think of a boss as someone who makes demands, yells at us when we screw up, and ultimately has the power to fire us at will. A […]
You’re committed to building a work environment of collaboration and teamwork—a work environment in which all your employees work together to reach common goals. The problem is, you have one employee who simply doesn’t share your team mindset. That’s where it may fall to you to step up and show some leadership—proactively working to bring […]
You’re mindful of the health of your business. You’re mindful of the health of your team. But are you mindful of your own health—the health of your body and of your mind? Successful leaders understand that they’re going to be most focused, most energetic, most creative, and most positive when they’re feeling their best—well-rested, well-nourished, […]
It’s tough being the new guy. That’s true when you’re in grade school and it’s still true when you’re a grown-up: Coming into a new workplace environment—especially one with a tight-knit team dynamic—can be challenging, and more than a little daunting. It’s not just hard for the new employee, though. Leaders and managers can sometimes […]
It’s not a shock or a surprise: People who have a positive outlook, who affirm themselves every morning, who visualize success and believe they can attain it tend to be the people who do the best, both in life and in business. Positive thinking is about more than improving your attitude. It’s about enhancing your […]
You may have an office full of people who are working hard—but are they working together? Has office-place competition choked out all sense of collaboration? Has the layout and structure of your workforce lent itself to true cohesion and shared vision, or just to seclusion and individualism? You accomplish more when you work together, uniting […]
If you had to describe your company culture in a single word, what word would you choose? And don’t cheat by saying just good or bad. Think more descriptively. How would you diagnose the fundamental character of your team, your office environment, your company’s values? Knowing what kind of company culture you have can be […]
You know how to communicate—but do you know how to connect? And you know how to speak—but are you sure you’re listening, and giving others a reason to listen to you? These might seem like rudimentary skills, but in our age of social media and smartphones, they’re practically endangered! We communicate all the time, and […]
It’s important to have goals, but goals don’t mean much if you have no way of tracking your progress. I think that’s the problem a lot of business leaders have with company culture. It’s not that they don’t understand it, nor that they don’t see the merit in making cultural improvements. Often, though, they struggle […]
Change is one of the few certainties in the business world—or, just generally, in life. The question that successful people ask isn’t whether or not things will change. The million dollar question is: When change happens, how will I respond to it? You see, good leaders are able to weather change—to survive it. Great leaders […]
As a business leader, what do you think is your greatest resource? It’s not anything monetary or physical; it’s not your business plan or your posh office space. Your most precious resource is your team—each member of it offering a unique perspective and skillset from which you can cultivate and refine your business. The question […]
What’s the most important resource you have—as an entrepreneur, a manager, a business leader, or simply as a person? Simple: It’s your time. That’s the one thing you can never get more of, the one thing that’s more precious to you than anything else. And if you really want to be successful, the trick is […]
A productive team is a unified team—a team in which all the members are able to cooperate and collaborate, despite whatever personal differences or personality clashes they may have. And to be sure: There’s no such thing as a team that doesn’t experience a little tension every now and again. What matters is that this […]
How do you build a strong team when some of the members of that team are simply uninterested in team building? That’s sort of the catch-22 of the entire teambuilding endeavor. On the one hand, there are plenty of ways you can strengthen and unify your professional team. The problem is, those methods are only […]
You’ve hired people to perform certain tasks, and you’ve assembled your team based on the individual talents represented by your team members. Now the question is: Are you actually making the most of those talents? Are you giving your team members the freedom to do the things they really excel at—or are you painting all […]
There’s an old saying that says sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Of course, we all know that this isn’t really true. Words have power, and when they are wielded carelessly, they actually can hurt. In both your personal and professional relationships, the words you choose and the […]
In recent years, there has been something of a backlash against team meetings. Do a quick Google search and you will find plenty of articles arguing that meetings are nothing but wasted time—and that they should be altogether abolished! Of course, this is an overstatement. You need to have a company culture in which communication […]
When you’re a leader, you can’t be afraid of confrontation. Part of your job is making sure that everyone else is doing their job correctly—and if there’s an issue on your team, it’s up to you to address it. There’s a right way and a wrong way to do that, however, and when it comes […]
Great teams don’t happen by accident. There are several components that you need to have in place for a great team to emerge. You need to have a vision for everyone to rally behind. You need to have a leader who fosters and encourages teamwork and collaboration. And crucially, you need a work environment that […]
In the workplace, we tend to define ourselves according to job titles and descriptions. Your title establishes what you do, what you’re in charge of, what your responsibilities are—and also what’s outside of your purview. Your job title defines what you need to do and what’s frankly not your concern; it lets you know when […]
