 “Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving.”  

~ Oliver Wendall Holmes (who was no doubt referring to leadership improvement!)

Leadership is all around us … and in us.

Within every level of the organization where we serve … there are leaders.

Unfortunately, many leaders are taught to embrace the position of leadership without also embracing the required skills of leadership improvement.

The pursuit of improving your leadership is why you’re reading this and improving your leadership is what I’m dedicated to supporting.

In addition to the other resources on this page, that’s why I’m developing a step-by-step course focused on leadership improvement before, during and after a crisis.

What Peeing The Bed Can Teach Us About Better Leadership

If you have kids, you’ve likely gone through the ritual of helping them grow out of peeing the bed. If you’re like me, one of the nightly edicts was “don’t pee the bed”. And more times than not, they pee the bed anyway. As far as ‘listening’ and ‘doing’ go, from the sentence “don’t pee […]

Criticize with Care – How to get action instead of acrimony

The problem is that when the criticism isn’t received as constructive, there’s no incentive for the desired improvement to occur. And the whole concept is […]
