Good leadership includes engaging employees and recognizing their talents

GOOD LEADERSHIP - It’s about more than just showing up, it’s about being engaged

Many managers believe that it is enough to show up and be seen, but then this is why I refer to them as managers and not leaders. Leadership require more than just showing up, it requires engagement; but if a manager doesn’t know what engagement looks like chances are they are missing opportunities to move from manager to leader.   In a recent

Employees Want Leaders To Be...

The demands on leaders can be many and they are often pulled in multiple directions at once. Having employees that work for you helps you to get things done and takes some of the burden off, but it also brings with it a great responsibility and new set of expectations and needs. Employees need things from their leaders and it is not just more work.  Here are six things

Leadership Through the Way of OZ

Think about Oz and the love you may have for the 1939 movie or the 1900 book portraying the story of the Wizard of Oz.  Or, you may have read one or more of the thirteen Oz sequels written by L. Frank Baum (1856-1919).  But, few realize that there are a set of lessons for developing leadership abilities based on the story’s content and the history, life, and times of the story’s creative

If you ask any historian to name the greatest leaders in western civilization, there's a good chance the 16th president of the United States will make the list.

How to Predict Behavior Like Abraham Lincoln Did

Abraham Lincoln had an uncanny ability to predict behavior.   For example, when Lincoln was President, he told one of his associates how every member of Congress would vote on a particular bill.   To make the point, he wrote down what their votes would be.   Sure enough, when the votes were tallied, Lincoln was on target for virtually every vote cast.

Leadership Lessons From the Life of Thomas Jefferson

One Leader's Perspective The greatest complement I have ever read was directed toward Thomas Jefferson. President John F.

Is Servant Leadership Part of Your Worldview?

Leadership is about the way you perceive and treat yourself and how you perceive and treat others. Personal leadership involves the former; social and organizational leadership involves the latter. The two are interrelated.   Each of us has a unique, complex “thinking system” which has developed since birth. This complex system is believed to actually be a composite of

Transitioning From Propeller-head to a Department-head

I remember my first project as a newly promoted project manager.  While I had received academic training in business administration and economics, I had begun my career among the technical ranks.  My promotion to project manager was largely due to my ability to code programs in CICS assembler, Cobol, and at the time the newly emerging programming languages called “4GLs”.  What I soo
