My Favorite 9.62% of the Rules of Thumb

March 26, 2010 Earlier this week, I was with a group of business owners in the training and performance industry. As you might imagine, it was a pretty energetic and creative group of people. Someone at the meeting shared with us a list of rules that comes from a book called Rules of...

Truman Thursdays: How to Launch a Fighter Jet

March 25, 2010 It's been almost two months since my overnight visit to the USS Harry S Truman. Since then, I've posted video clips on Thursdays that feature some of the leaders of the ship and offer a look at life on board an aircraft carrier. Based on the stats from You Tube,...

Video Book Club: Leaders Make the Future

March 25, 2010 OK, I'm doing something different with VBC this week. I'm recommending a book I haven't read yet. It's called Leaders Make the Future.

That helps us make better decisions and do better work." The flip side...

Hanging Tough with Your Boss

March 15, 2010 The Washington Post ran an interesting article by Lois Romano last week on how Hillary Clinton is organizing her staff and leading at the State Department.

Listen and They Will Talk

March 12, 2010 Yesterday, I had a wrap up session with an executive I've enjoyed coaching for the past seven months. He was one of those clients who was great to work with because he took his colleague feedback to heart and really dedicated himself to following through on developing a few key...
