Over the past several months, I’ve given a number of keynotes focusing on how leaders can drive employee performance.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been giving keynotes to a wide range of leaders in different industries.

In some of my leadership keynotes and workshops, I point out how one way to foster a sense of cohesion and community among your employees is to make time to celebrate milestones.

As a leader, you’re responsible for accomplishing many tasks, most critical among them is setting and articulating the strategic goals of your team and organization.

There’s an annual tradition that plays out this time of the year for most leaders where they split their focus between making sure they close out whatever goals or plans they had for the last quarter, and looking ahead to the next year and what need to be the new priorities going forward. Thanks to the pandemic, though, there’s been a number of oth…
 
Even before the global pandemic struck, many organizations and their leaders were limiting themselves to a short-term view at the expense of achieving any of their long-term goals. So how do leaders move past the current and persistent short-termism that’s often driven by a fear-based mindset, and instead embrace a more long-term, hopeful view for …
 
If there’s one consistent thread in the debate over remote work, it’s how leaders who want their employees to return to the office argue that collaboration can’t occur unless people are working in the same space.

If you’re a leader who leads from the so-called messy middle, I'm sure there are times where you feel how the challenges you face are uniquely different from those other leaders have to face.

One of the interesting, but not surprising findings to come out of this current global pandemic is how much people have appreciated being able to have breaks in their work day to just take a break, unwind, and maybe spend some time with their family.

If there’s one thing we’ve all learned over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic it’s the importance of being adaptive to unexpected and disruptive change.
