” By Greg Wartes, of Managed Services”

My firm performs a lot of services really well, and we know where our strengths are – simple right?  Not reality though.  Because I am in sales, I meet people for a living – prospects, networking, saying hello to people in line at the grocery store, business owners and the folks in “the channel.”  The thing that always amazes me is that when I meet a business owner that tells me they are good at A through Z, not skipping anything in between; really?  You excel at everything?

“Tin Man” leadership

Share This:

“By Mark Nation, of SmartBrief”

I recently had a conversation with the leader of a nonprofit about how we so easily become mechanical in our work, especially when we are in positions of leadership. The man I was talking with made a quick, off-the-cuff reference to the story of the Tin Man, and then moved on, but the metaphor really stuck with me.

A parable is told about a pencil-maker who was preparing to put an important pencil in a box. Before doing so, though, he took the pencil aside. “There are five things you need to know,” he said. “If you can remember these five things, you will become the best pencil you can be.”

Apologize Already!

Share This:

” By Ken Blanchard, of How We Lead”

Time and again, I’ve noticed that many of us have a lot of trouble apologizing. I’ve observed this in myself, as well.
