    How To Diagnose And Treat Team Conflict

    When many highly educated people work together in a culture heavily focused on logic and science, the relationship realm, with its underbelly of subtle emotions, is often brushed aside. This can lead to systemic difficulties that derail productivity and limit success.

  • Leading Courageously Through Unclear Times
    Leading Courageously Through Unclear Times

    Over the past year, the pace of change in the life sciences industry has accelerated more than ever before, and 2017 shows no sign of slowing. From the shift to outcomes-based care and the rapid influx of new health technologies to growing pressure on cost controls and the ever-changing world of healthcare regulations, this year will bring even more change and uncertainty.

  • Getting Great = Confidence + Willingness
    Getting Great = Confidence + Willingness

    All of us want to perform at a higher level than we are currently at. However, we let daily distractions, fear of trying something new, the fear of making a mistake, and unsolicited feedback from others get in the way of our efforts to “get great.” We put ourselves in a “stuck-in-the-mud” position and lose sight of what we should do first.

  • The Best Way To Set Goals In The New Year
    The Best Way To Set Goals In The New Year

    It’s no secret that all good performance starts with clear goals — and the beginning of the year is a great time to set those goals. But how many of you take the time to create clear, motivating goals with your staff?

  • How Resilient Are You? Machiavelli’s Advice
    How Resilient Are You? Machiavelli’s Advice

    Machiavelli is known as the high priest of sleaze. His big idea was supposedly that the ends justify the means — and any means are OK. But ask yourself a question. Would we even know Machiavelli’s name today if all he said was you can get ahead by being sleazy?

    Management Is Dead. Stop Managing And Start Coaching!

    Finally we have realized you can’t manage people, you can only manage things. Behaviors are manageable, and people certainly are not, so we need to stop trying to manage people. We must start to learn skills to coach people to success.

  • Hiring Millennials: A Balancing Act
    Hiring Millennials: A Balancing Act

    The millennial generation (Generation Y, ages 19-39) has been stereotyped as narcissistic, selfie-obsessed, self-promoters. But they are the largest, most diverse demographic cohort in American history, and their potential to make myriad unimagined strides in our country’s progress can’t be understated.

  • How To Be A Three-Box Leader
    How To Be A Three-Box Leader

    In a nutshell, the Three-Box Solution describes the framework for managing a business’s responsibility to take action in three time horizons at once: executing the present core business at peak efficiency (Box 1); taking steps to avoid the inhibiting traps of past success (Box 2); and innovating a future built on nonlinear ideas (Box 3). Leaders must understand the distinctive skills each box requires, how the boxes interrelate, and what it takes to balance them.

  • Executive Well-Being – Body, Mind, And Purpose
    Executive Well-Being – Body, Mind, And Purpose

    Your team looks to you for more than just leadership related to getting the job done. How you treat yourself, how you communicate with others, and the actions you take influence everyone around you. That means you have the opportunity to positively influence the health and well-being of your team. That’s good for you, your team, and your company.

    5 Fundamentals For Becoming An Exemplary Leader

    Leadership potential is everywhere. And yet, organizations report they have major concerns about the lack of leadership bench strength. Why is this?
