  To build a great company, we need to understand how to build a great team because without them we will be hard-pressed to get beyond first stage growth. The greatest leaders have always ascribed their success to their team. Listen to a few famous quotes from some well-known leaders: “Talent wins games, but teamwork [...]

Try asking versus telling for a change

  During the past several years, I have observed more and more leaders learning the true value of their leadership teams and employees.  With all of the changes taking place in the marketplace, we have come to appreciate the value of human contact and discussion. Aren’t you glad we can now start going places and [...]

How to move from what’s now to what’s next

  Wouldn’t it be great if we could decide just six things each day that would lead to our success? Well, we can. The result of these critical questions would mean that instead of getting stuck in a strategic challenge, we could find a way to unclog, unblock, and release us from what holds us [...]

Rethink, It’s Not Just About Your Sales

  Achieving sustainable and scalable sales is the natural output of a successful broad analysis of factors.  A PEST Analysis is commonly used to assess extremely broad factors of Political, Economic, Socio-demographic (social), and Technological.
