Idiots, Rules and Taking a Mulligan
August At C-Level
Hurricane Laura is supposed to arrive full force this morning, likely a little before this newsletter hit your inbox. Our prayers are with those who may be in the path, and hopefully, there won't be any undue craziness. Or at least no more craziness than we've already had this year (which is a helluva lot).

Locals scurrying about buying up all the water, yet generators sit on the floor at Lowes; during my six major hurricanes (Cat 3 or higher) since living here, we've never lost water service, but have lost electricity every single time. Critical thinking seems to have missed us here...

I have my hurricane preparedness kit all packed up. There's likely wine involved, so don't judge.

Mulligans and Do-Overs
-- Sometimes leaders need a reset

By D. Kevin Berchelmann

I like golf. I don't get to play it much these days, and it's probably as much fun for others to watch me play golf as it is for me to actually play the damned game. But I still like golf.

Please understand... I like to play golf. I do not like to practice golf. At all. Ever. I don't even like to hit a few balls on the range to loosen up before a round.

About now, you're asking yourself what this couple possibly have to do with leadership. I'm getting there, don't get your panties in a bunch.

Rigid Adherence to Self-Imposed Rules...
-- the sign of a dying company

By Kevin Ross

The times have changed, and we've all had to change with them. Almost every aspect of our lives is different than it was at the end of 2019, especially how we lead our organizations and conduct our operations - remotely (with extra distractions), virtual meetings, with fewer people, less team cohesion, restricted travel, etc.

We've changed with knee-jerk reactions, well thought out responses, and/or a combination of both, but one thing's for sure: we've all changed the way we do things.

I say all, but that's not completely accurate. There are small clans in our companies that have not changed the way they do things. In fact, they rigidly adhere to self-imposed policies and rules that are only bypassed when they want to.

Dude, Take the Survey...
