Back 'em up, inspire 'em, and don't let the time slip away. 
February At C-Level
Time flies, whether you're having fun or not!  

2016's more than off to the races. Incredibly, we're more than 10% of the way through the year.

Scary, huh?

It shouldn't be. We should be prepared... we did a good analysis of 2015--what worked, what didn't work, and a post-mortem for reasons why, didn't we? A solid vision and future strategy is guiding our course for 2016, right?

Is that your reality?

Are your plans in place? Do you have the talent available to implement/execute? Sufficient, competent leadership to guide the way, motivate, and make things happen? Compensation and incentives that are actually congruent with your objectives?

Answer these questions now. Right now. Wait another month, and your plans better need only 75% of a year to execute...

If you need help with leadership development, coaching, or strategy part of your high-speed 2016 plan, you know how to reach us.

But don't wait! "If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done." Bruce Lee

Oh, yeah... don't forget that Valentine's Day is this weekend.

I know, that's heresy, but it's still true. We make mistakes all the time, we can only assume that the people working for us do as well.
So, when they do make that mistake, what do we do? Whack 'em immediately? Beat 'em up about it? Public humiliation?
How about, Complete unequivocal support.
Wait... WHAT??

Inspired or Not, Here You Come!

"Leadership is about influence and
inspiration." - Everyone Who Knows Anything

Who has the most influence on the mood in your workplace?

Leaders & Laggards
In this section, we take a look at recent news and events, and make a gut-reaction determination for three categories:

Demonstrating Clear, Personal Leadership
Leadership Milquetoast
Mediocrity in leadership. Usually an opportunity not taken, or similar.

"Waaaa! You better stop saying true things about me or else." Martin Shkreli's on a roll. You'd think after his firings and indictment, the triple-ex-CEO would learn to keep his feet out of his mouth. Not a chance.
