Emulate the Key Traits of Your Favorite Boss or Coach

I just got done reading a marvelous blog post from a friend of mine, Danita Bye. This outgoing Finn regularly inspires me with her concepts on sales development and leadership.

The post mentioned above talks about a boss/coach/mentor she had when she went to college and how this person's commitment to service has impacted her for 35 years.

I ask of many people this question. "Who is your favorite boss, coach, teacher and mentor? What did they do with you that makes them your favorite?"Read More

When they get into the workplace, we teach them how to do specific tasks and handle a narrow set of projects.

Technical, tactical ability in these areas is NOT really where it's at, however. Read More

Why Mental Connection Training for your Employees Pays Off in Sustained Success

For 300 years, our society has looked to develop people that could do tasks proficiently. For the most part, that era is OVER.

Because of automation and the freer movement between various jobs and careers, organizational success depends much more upon employees being able to think, reason, create and communicate effectively. Learning agility is a new buzzword to capture this concept.
