the ceo magazine, business management,

Each year clients hire me to help them make tough decisions, but in the process, I learn as much as they do. Some of the things I discovered this year reinforced lessons I discovered previously, but every year brings surprises too. Here are my recommended New Year’s resolutions for anyone who wants to improve a business in 2016:

the ceo magazine, decision making,

           When leaders continually and constantly grapple with tough questions and develop a list of standards that serves as more than a pretty poster, their beliefs serve as the bedrock of the organization’s strategy and provide guidelines about how and what to change. When beliefs veer from espoused values and create a dysfunctional or confusing set of standards, the opposite occurs; and people start to behave in ways that hurt the organization.

the ceo magazine, managing fear

When we silence the fears in our heads, we clear the way for more dispassionate, rational thinking. That allows us to shift from a fear mentality (there will never be enough) to one of fortitude (I have plenty, or at least enough) to be successful/ happy/respected/financially stable. A mindset shift leads to better calls, but it starts with replacing fear with fortitude.

the ceo magazine, business management,

            Last month Syracuse University decided to pull its “kiss cam” after fan Steve Port wrote to complain that the common staple at sports venues “sends the wrong message at a time when colleges are fighting against sexual assault.” He claims he was just “out to raise an important issue.” That’s all it took, one fan with one agenda item that led to the university banning an iconic sporting event that no one, including Port, claims ever led to bad manners, much less criminal activity.

the ceo magazine, corporate culture,

Like most other automakers, GM has faced the ups and downs of a troubled industry, but until last year, it had remained a powerhouse since its inception in 1908. GM led global vehicle sales for 77 consecutive years from 1931 through 2007, longer than any other automaker, but then things changed. They faced bankruptcy in 2009 and a recall scandal in 2014.
