When it comes to executive startup funding, the ceiling for female executives isn’t made of glass – it’s made of paper, the paper used to make money. And if you follow the money – as in the nearly $60 billion venture capitalists invested in 2016 – the vast majority of investment dollars went to male-founded companies. In fact, men received in excess of 16 times more funding than women last year.

In 1974, Mel Brooks directed the blockbuster comedy, Young Frankenstein.  In the movie, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein learns he has inherited his infamous grandfather's estate in Transylvania, along with his manuals and lab notes. After initially resisting any connection to his grandfather, Frederick becomes fascinated by the idea of creating his own monster after he discovers his grandfather’s book, How I Did It. As Frederick discovered, understanding a researcher’s conclusions often starts by knowing how he or she did it. Here’s how I discovered the importance of humor in decision-making.

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sail.”
 ~ William Arthur Ward

An intriguing factor continues to challenge many organizations and indications are strong that the crisis will not subside in the near term. That challenge – the continued disenfranchisement of employees who are no longer engaged.

Keith, CEO of a Fortune 500 financial organization, called with an intriguing project—one I’ve never been asked to repeat elsewhere, but one with fascinating results.

The Project

The CEO wanted to know how much I could discover about a person’s leadership style from their writing. “I don’t know; I’ve never had occasion to test my theories,” I told him, quite reluctant to take on what already sounded like an oddball way to lose a good client. He listened as I pointed out that someone might be a great leader, but just an incompetent writer and vice versa—how they might be an eloquent writer, but a lousy leader.

In my new book "Do it, Mean it, Be it. The Keys to Achieve Success, Happiness and Everything You Deserve at Work and in Life” I describe the strategies and secrets of people who are not only extremely successful but who also have a life. Why? Because I believe the two are not mutually exclusive. I believe it’s possible to do a great job, be rewarded for it, and also have fun. And if you’re not doing that, what’s the point? I interview a number of CEOs in the book and here are some of the things they had in common about getting more done, in less time.
