Your to-do list is a mile long, everything is labeled high priority, and the expectations are high. Time robbers. They steal from you each and every day, leaving you overwhelmed, frustrated, and spinning your wheels. And guess what? You may be the culprit. That’s right, what derails you most is oftentimes self-imposed. Take a look at this lineup. How many do you recognize—and how can you stop the crime against productivity? Putting things off leads to costly mistakes, poor results, and other issues that require you to spend even more time on the task at hand. Whether you’ve developed a, Read More

Workplace productivity, employee engagement, and job satisfaction probably aren’t the first things that come to mind when you think about conflict. Since the days of Plato and Aristotle, conflict has been widely recognized as the cause of many struggles, from stress and inefficiency to poor decision-making and employee turnover. Just look these eye-opening statistics: Almost 85% of employees experience conflict at work. Managers spend as much as 40% of their time dealing with conflict. Employees exhaust approximately 3 hours each week in conflict situations. Yikes! And to complicate things further, wrap your head around this: For all the damage inflicted, Read More

Personality style affects our interactions with others, and it is important in several aspects of organizational and personal life. People with different styles have different priorities and func­tion at different paces. These differences can create problems if they remain under the surface. If Joe is slow and thorough and Jane is fast and decisive, their working relationship will be stressful unless they are aware of each other’s preferences. Knowledge of personality styles prevents misinterpretation and frustration. Understanding personality style allows us to interpret the actions of others. If we are aware of another person’s typical behaviors, we can take these, Read More

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 2pm – 3pm EDT Organizations that integrate creativity into their DNA achieve significant benefits, including better team performance, increased flexibility, greater retention rates, creative problem solving, and strategic decision making. And when it comes to leadership, creativity is the key to gaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace. But just as there are multiple styles of intelligence, there are multiple styles of creativity that produce different yet equally valuable results. Variations in how individuals look at the world, gather information, and respond to challenges all have an impact on creative contributions. That’s why self-discovery is an, Read More

Positive buzz, measurable results, and improved performance top every trainer’s wish list. It’s also the key to getting management buy-in and achieving professional success. But you won’t get there with lecture-style training or e-learning programs where rows of chairs face forward or the only activity taking place is the clicking of a mouse. The question is…how can you take your training to the next level? The answer is…try adding a training game to the mix. Why Choose a Training Game? Say goodbye to doodling, daydreaming, and worrying about what’s for lunch. Simply put, training games add life to the classroom., Read More

There’s always been a lot of buzz about the benefits of collaboration. But before you assume collaboration is the best strategy for executing organizational goals and objectives, consider this: there’s a right way to collaborate and a wrong way to collaborate. And sometimes, collaboration is the wrong strategy altogether. Successful collaboration requires a combination of the appropriate situation, a well-developed skill set, and an open mind. So how can you determine with confidence when—and if—to choose this approach as a means to achieving your goals? Let’s start with the need for collaboration. The Need for Collaboration Do more with less., Read More

Many consider experiential learning to be synonymous with learning by doing. While it does incorporate a high level of activity and interaction, models like the HRDQ Experiential Learning Model guide individuals through a series of building blocks that engage the participant, offer relevant lessons, and provide an adaptable learning environment. Built upon the highly-respected research of several adult-learning theorists—including Kolb, Honey, Mumford, and Jones—this model represents learning as a closed-loop cycle that begins with Focusing and progresses through Integrating. The core of the HRDQ Experiential Learning Model is based upon the underlying premise that adults are motivated to learn when, Read More

Our managerial, supervisory presence has the productive potential to inspire those who follow us and help move the company forward. We want to leave our mark on things. We want to be remembered. This inventory takes the vanity out of such a human endeavor and enables one to ‘pay it forward’ – both by inspiring future leaders as well as demonstrating what best practices just make sense. What makes the Legacy Leadership Competency Inventory (LLCI) different from other programs is that it offers a compelling set of leadership practices that are designed to perpetuate a cycle of leadership development. It, Read More

Good leaders do not fear taking a risk. The reason the good leader doesn’t fear taking risks is that she knows that she has prepared and practiced more vigilantly than anyone else. Such preparation instills the confidence and competence that enables this leader to drive everything forward. People will follow her lead and guidance as she not only effectively communicates her movements with her team, but also cuts a path that people will undoubtedly follow. Courageous Leadership is a comprehensive training package that introduces courage-building, a practice that guides leaders to meet challenges more readily, embrace change more fully, and, Read More

“The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been.”  Henry Kissinger In order to make this happen, it helps if one employs a little higher order thinking to take a personal inventory of his leadership style – and how he motivates his team to exceed all expectations. It’s more than just getting people to jump through the hoops and maintain the status quo. If a leader truly wants to engage her colleagues and light the fires of innovation and progress, she will assess her own skill set such that, Read More
