There's No Me In Leadership

June 8, 2011 Am I the only one who's gotten tired of all the stories we've had lately about self absorbed "leaders" behaving badly? Just in the last couple of weeks I've written about four of them in the posts, Four Dogs, One Hero and Three Danger Signals That Your Integrity Is At...

Leadership Is Not An End In Itself

June 7, 2011 As is often the case, The New York Times' Corner Office feature offered an interesting interview with a business leader last week. The subject this time was Bing Gordon, a partner with the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins. Gordon said something about leadership that might sound counter intuitive:...

Three Danger Signals That Your Integrity is at Risk

June 2, 2011 Some recent news stories, one in particular, have caused me to pull out my dictionary to look up the word, integrity. (I like to use the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language because it offers the roots of the words all to the way back to the Indo-European roots.)...

Lead As If You're Still Going To Be Here

May 22, 2011 As I write this, it is Sunday afternoon and I'm happy to report that, contrary to a firm prediction from the founder of Family Radio, we're all still here. The world didn't end. I have to say that I wasn't really that worried because I've had direct experience with people...

Four Dogs, One Hero

May 19, 2011 This has been quite a week for high profile people in leadership positions behaving like dogs. First, we have the head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss Kahn, charged with sexually assaulting a housekeeper in his $3,000 a night hotel room. And, with that, what I would suspect is the only...

The Fine Art of GSD: How to Get Stuff Done in a Large Organization

May 17, 2011 One of the highest compliments that can be paid in our house is that someone GSD's. While we have a somewhat colorful definition of what GSD means, the polite way to explain it is that it stands for Gets Stuff Done. When you think about it, getting stuff done is...

Look Me in the Eyes

May 13, 2011 Earlier this week I gave a speech to a couple of hundred managers about how to stay on track with delegation. As part of the talk, I introduced a step by step approach to effective and worry free delegation and then had the audience split up into groups of three...

Three Ways to Deal with a Smart Aleck (and other rude people in your organization)

May 12, 2011 Wow, I had no idea what kind of nerve I was striking when I wrote a post last week on taming your inner smart aleck. Lots of leader readers left fantastic mea culpa comments that shared stories of the moments of truth that helped cure them of entertaining themselves with...

James Levine's Servant Leadership: "I Want to Always Be There for the Players

May 9, 2011 It's often said that effective leadership is a lot like conducting an orchestra. Last week, I heard an interview on NPR's Fresh Air with an actual leader who conducts an actual orchestra.
