Authenticity In Leadership

In 2008 when the world was crashing, projects were dying, and budgets were drying up I started a WordPress blog under my own name.  The original intent was to connect and share observations and insights on project related work in the tech space and how readers could remain successful in such challenging times.  Since then, a lot has changed including my focus and it’s been obvious for some time that I needed to embrace Read more

Types Of Leadership

Leaders craft the culture, performance and results of their organization every day.  They have the ability to increase performance, product quality, employee satisfaction, and customer loyalty.  All of this affects revenue.  Unfortunately when we think of leadership we often think of leadership failures.  i.e. What has taken place recently on Wall Street or in Washington, news of a company closing its doors or some latest scandal.  In truth, leaders often fall short of their goals.

 

This site focuses on a better path to leadership.  I believe that the success of an organization, its reputation and the legacy it leaves behind all start and end with those people who lead.  Through honesty and authenticity in the practice of leadership we can build great companies of every size.  If the most valuable resource of any company is its people, then its leaders have a moral responsibility to champion excellence in everything they do.

Part of this site focuses on actionable items that can improve a specific function.  My experience across numerous verticals has led me to a set of “best in class” practices in these areas.  The other focus in this site is on the character of leadership itself.  That involves building sustainable relationships, creating cultures of success and inspiring and igniting passion in those who work with you.

My hope is that what you find here will add value to your life and give you the tools to achieve your goals as a leader, regardless of your title.  Winning the respect of the people around you should be the goal of any leader.  And you will have it, as long as you follow the right path.
