challenge assumptions Are You Challenging Assumptions In Your Workplace? (4/18/2018) Posted in: Awareness, Business Performance, Communication, Executive Leadership, Leadership, Learning, Organizational Structure, Problem Solving, Recognition, Teambuilding, Vision - A successful leader once shared that he constantly asks himself one question: “What am I not seeing?” Assumptions are one of the areas that may be a blind spot, and leadership requires us to challenge them repeatedly.

invite dialogue Executive Leaders Encourage Dialogue (3/29/2018) Posted in: Business Performance, Communication, Employee Development, Employee Engagement, Executive Leadership, Leadership, Learning, Listening, Organizational Structure, Teambuilding -   Often, great ideas come from healthy debate. When team members exchange ideas and opinions, new ideas can emerge. Working collaboratively always produces better results than working competitively. When people compete within an organization, they don’t support each other toward the shared vision. This creates a culture of self-interest, rather than organizational interest. Competition is healthy for competitors, not for team members. Imagine […]

However, most often, the truth is that […]
