Hello...Hello...Is My Brand In There?
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jan, 2010
I recently read an article in BusinessWeek about famous movie director Brett Ratner. I was intrigued by the article because on the front page it had a picture of him with the caption, “Brand-minded filmmaker Brett Ratner.” I thought to myself, what does Brett Ratner know about branding? Simply stated, more than most! The article discusses his recent endeavors into the world of advertising and marketing and how he incorpo...
Building Trust Means First Setting Clear Expectations
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
"I don't feel that my team members have my back," one of my coaching clients, "Merrall", said leaning forward in her chair during our Skype call. Watching her posture and expression on the video screen, I could see her frustration with the current situation. "What does having your back look like?" I asked. "It means giving me a heads up about situations that could bite me in the backside when I least expect it." Le...
Skirting Around Risk Taking - Why Giving Voice to the Word Matters
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
I read the Harvard Business Review blog article "How Do Innovators Think?" with its focus on "inquisitiveness". A great attribute to have, indeed, and one that speaks to someone's curious nature. But as the authors discovered, inquisitiveness on its own doesn't always translate into action. And without action, curiosity is just another nine-letter word that never moves anyone to innovate.

Remember that old definition of insanity: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Well it’s 2010, and there is no time like the present to push the boundaries of your comfort zone by infusing some creative energy into your daily routine.

by Suzanne Bates - Jan, 2010
“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.” – Vince Lombardi I’ve talked with a few clients recently about whether it was “worthwhile” to invest in their people.

No One Size Fits All - Sixteen Simple Actions For Leading Change
by Dee McCrorey - Jan, 2010
Change is not one-size-fits-all. People move at different paces according to what they perceive as inside or outside their comfort zones, the amount of trust they have in their support network, and how much perceived value the change has for them.
