A Gift For The New Year

December 29, 2014 — Leave a comment

Hi – I hope you are all enjoying the holidays… and looking forward to the new year! Yes, it is that time of year again… we all need to start looking ahead and thinking about what we would like to accomplish next year.  Have you started thinking about next year and what you will accomplish? We all know traditional goal setting doesn’t work… and New Year’s Resolutions? Enough said! Did you know:

  • 70%  of organizational change initiatives FAIL
  • 83% of people have no set goals. While 14% have goals, they do not write them down. The remaining 3% who do write their goals are ten times more successful than the 14% with unwritten goals.
  • 92% of people FAIL to achieve their New Years resolutions, with more than 64% quitting before the end of the first month!

Because I have worked in the corporate world for so long, I have definitely seen more initiative fail and more people fail to meet their objectives than I care to think about. I tend to wonder… If people are not committed to achieving those goals that their paychecks depend on, what is happening in their personal lives? Many years ago, I developed a process to ensure that not only did I meet my goals and objectives (personal and professional alike), I could also help my employees to achieve success in their work… and in their lives.  Today, I use the same process with my clients around the world. My method has been proven over and over again and I would like to introduce you to a way to achieve success in every area of your life in a sustained, dependable way. Studies show, repeatedly, how valuable goal setting can be when it is actually followed through on. In fact, one thing all successful people have in common is that they set, follow through… and achieve the goals they set. I created this e-guide to help you discover a new way of thinking that will enable you to meet your goals and improve your life… in any area. Please take this opportunity to download this FREE e-guide that will help you to think about goal-setting in a new, more inclusive way. GoalsEGuide_Coverv2

If you follow this process, you WILL achieve your goals and obtain unimaginable success in the coming year… and beyond. I would love to hear about the success you are sure to achieve!

GLABB – something not only at the very foundation of my company, but of who I am as an individual.  Having spent over 25 years in global business, I feel somewhat qualified to speak from my experience and knowledge as I have worked with and for some of the most well-known global companies around the world leading Global Service Operations.  As I continue to talk with clients through the years about the true essence of global leadership (GL) and how it translates into real business results, I am continually intrigued by the variations and perceptions associated with the term Leadership.  I started this series describing my definition of the word “Global“… so now what do I mean by “Leadership”, in context? An overused, ambiguous term to be sure… However, when used purposefully, the word leadership is very distinctive… and very powerful.

Last week I discussed how self-esteem affects you as a leader, but what about how your self-esteem provides the mechanism for you to help others? Self-esteem is essential to your ability engage and maintain meaningful, respectful working relationships – self-esteem holds you accountable to how you interact and work with others and keeps you centered, as a leader. As you engage in building comprehensive self-esteem across your organization, others will notice and will find great encouragement and respect in your commitment to building the foundation of your organization.

Self-esteem just may be the Holy Grail when it comes to leadership development. It is perhaps the only human characteristic that determines how we see ourselves from the inside while directly correlating to how others perceive us on the outside.

While typically not a topic discussed over coffee, self-esteem is a matter of critical importance for you as a leader. Self-esteem holds you accountable to how you interact and work with others… self-esteem keeps you centered…self- esteem is the genesis for how well others respect you. It has an effect on how you think, feel, act – and your business results. Self-esteem determines your ability to be an Authentic Leader.

In short, your self-esteem reflects the degree to which you feel comfortable with yourself as you are, believe that you have inherent value as a unique individual and demonstrate confidence in your ability to successfully achieve your own measure of success.

For better or worse… we are all extensions of the networks we have built – or the lack thereof. Those who are devoted to the intensive cultivation of the vine will prosper and grow, while those who do not, well, you can guess the outcome…

Ask any senior executive (or successful salesperson) which single skill has helped them to accelerate their career – an overwhelming majority will respond with one simple word… Networking.

We all know what makes the corporate world continue to expand and grow. It’s a giant social vine, with people dynamically interdependent upon one another for success.  Whether we like it (or care to acknowledge it) or not – we are dependent upon one another. Continue Reading…

At The Root Of It All

Here is an under-recognized, under-utilized truth:

PEOPLE make the company, the company does not make the people. 

Often leaders are preoccupied with who they are going to hire.  Agreed – hiring is a critically important decision.  Who you hire, as a leader, will ultimately determine your level of success… or will it?  It seems logical enough. After all, if you hire great people you’re laying the foundation for building great teams, units, and organizations… as well as great overall business results, right?

At The Root Of It All

On the surface, you are absolutely right. However, if you dig down deep to the root of many organizational issues, you find a much darker problem: “A” Players are hired for their talent, innovation and potential to take the organization to new heights, and then they are treated no different than the “B” and “C” Players in the organization that make no real day to day impact. The reality is that without great people that make real impact, you cannot sustainably build great products or provide great services. Continue Reading…
