8 Ways To Cure Dysfunctional Meetings

8 Ways To Cure Dysfunctional Meetings

The idea of stand-up meetings as a way to improve meetings isn’t new; a colleague was advocating them over 15 years ago. The promise of stand-up meetings curing our dysfunctional meetings is compelling, since we’ve all attended or even organized meetings that simply dragged on and didn’t accomplish what we wanted. Unfortunately, this doesn’t treat […]

You Don’t Need To Be Like Everyone Else – Be Unique

You Don’t Need To Be Like Everyone Else – Be Unique

You do not have to be like everyone else.  In fact, you are better off if you are NOT like everyone else. As a small business person and “solo-preneur” there is a lot of time spent on marketing, and the more one tends to resemble others, the harder it is to get noticed.  I have […]

7 Strategies To Improve Creativity Using the Analog Approach

7 Strategies To Improve Creativity Using the Analog Approach

I spend way too much time in front of the computer, but sometimes when I start planning for an initiative, workshop or presentation, I step away from the computer and switch to a pad of paper and a pen to improve creativity. That’s right, a pen instead of a pencil and eraser, which means that […]

Chasing Best Practices – How to Find Them

Chasing Best Practices – How to Find Them

While it’s fashionable to seek out best practices, the problem is finding them in the first place and then deciding what to do with them when you find them. Do you implement them? Do you adapt them? Do you assess whether they will work for you? Do you learn why they are best practices? The […]

Managing Your Vendors, Suppliers and Contractors Starts with Procurement

Managing Your Vendors, Suppliers and Contractors Starts with Procurement

I worked on a project for a client a little while ago. They wanted two things. One, they wanted to know whether the existing suppliers and contractors they procured services from were well aligned with their needs, culture, goals and objectives. That one was easy. Essentially the procurement process didn’t have any criteria related to […]

Don’t Give Your Employees the Solution – Give Them The Tools They Need To Solve It Themselves Instead

Don’t Give Your Employees the Solution – Give Them The Tools They Need To Solve It Themselves Instead

Recently, someone came to me to help them find a solution to a business problem. I managed to help them find the best possible solution. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t actually give them the solution. What I did was help him walk through the issue and discover the solution himself simply by providing a […]

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong

Pay For Performance Gone Wrong

If you’ve read my past material on performance management and KPI’s, you know research shows that financial incentives (and penalties) can drive the wrong behavior in your staff and suppliers. I’ve seen it personally and research shows it. We don’t have to see evidence just in one industry – it’s everywhere. I found a recent […]
