My adolescent/young adult years were spent working in farming and construction.  I can’t say that I ever noticed any reticence by bosses in these industries to confront underperformance.  Quite the opposite in fact.  Immediate, stinging criticism was more the norm, often punctuated with clever, compound-word profanity.  In fact some of my bosses were so good at swearing at me and others that I sometimes wondered if they had spent time in prison, or possibly the navy, honing their skills of profane repartee.

Three Ways to Improve Employee Engagement and Productivity 

Do your employees feel inspired to show up and give their best, or are they sending an S.O.S.? Mounting evidence demonstrates the real financial impact that employee engagement has on companies. Gallup research indicates that highly engaged business units experienced a 41 percent reduction in absenteeism and a 17 percent increase in productivity, ultimately achieving 21 percent greater profitability.

Walk into Sewell Lexus in Dallas, Texas.  A huge overhead light shaped like an upside-down diamond…bathes the bone-colored tile of the showroom in a soft glow. Offices are done in rich mahogany paneling. Large plants are everywhere, plus colorful fresh flowers. The sitting area has overstuffed leather couches centered on a rich oriental rug.  If this were a home it would be in Architectural Digest! You realize you are in a classy place when you are warmly greeted by everyone like you are guest in their home, not like easy prey for salespeople in search of a kill.

Helping Your People Finish Well

The first few waves of Baby Boomers have left the building, and they have taken their decades of experience, their strong relationships and their cool heads with them. Soon, the GenXers will head for whatever is next for them as well. How will this outflow of talent affect your business? And, is it possible to stop it and make your organization stronger while still keeping this group happy and productive?

Introduction

An unfortunate but familiar scenario frequently plays out.

A team comes up with a breakthrough idea that could not only drive short term growth but also ensure long-term financial stability. But once in the boardroom it all falls apart, with members exposing cracks in the investment strategy where outcomes have not been clearly outlined or supported with adequate financial projections or relevant data. Defeat hangs heavy in the room, offset with blank stares and the demand to re-write plans.
