What I Learned on an Aircraft Carrier

January 25, 2010 Last October, I had the opportunity to speak on leadership to newly promoted admirals and senior executives of the US Navy in their annual symposium.

What You Can Learn About Negotiating From Conan O'Brien

January 22, 2010 As I'm writing this a few days before publication, by the time you read this Conan O'Brien will have probably left The Tonight Show on NBC with a hefty severance package in the neighborhood of $30 million. (See this article from the Financial Times for details.) I'd leave for that...

How Coakley and Brown Pulled Defeat from the Jaws of Victory and Vice Versa: What Leaders Can Learn

January 21, 2010 One of the most fun aspects of my work as an executive coach is the opportunity to work in a lot of different organizations. I enjoy observing what's different and similar in the various cultures. One thing that's more or less the same everywhere is that most people profess a...

Six Qualities That Made Martin Luther King, Jr. a Great Speaker

January 19, 2010 Several years ago I was given the gift of the recordings of the sermons and speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. The sermon set is called "A Knock at Midnight," and the speeches set is titled "A Call to Conscience." There are companion books of the same title for each...

January 11, 2010 The next few weeks are some of my favorites of the year as the NFL playoffs are underway.

How To Keep Your Plates Spinning in 2010

January 8, 2010 I'm old enough to remember the guys who used to come on The Ed Sullivan Show to spin plates. It was an amazing act. The fast music would start and the guy would get about five plates spinning on top of sticks and have another five plates spinning between the...

Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word

January 6, 2010 Question: What do former Time Warner CEO, Jerry Levin, former Citigroup CEO Sandy Weill and (soon to be former?) Washington Wizard, Gilbert Arenas have in common?

Invictus: A Leadership Case Study for Years to Come

January 4, 2010 So one of the wonderful things (for me at least) about the end of year holidays is the opportunity to see a lot of first run movies.
