It goes without saying that these are uncertain times and everything seems to be changing rapidly. As business leaders, we must remember the one constant that will allow us to pull out of all this and come out on top: leadership.
Change is the one constant that each of us deals with every single day. How we communicate these changes, and how we respond to them, is perhaps even more important than the change itself. Here's what you need to know.
As business leaders, regardless of industry or function, we are responsible for ROI across the organization. We are all dealing with a scenario that had not been anticipated and for which most of us were unprepared.
At Cnesta Group, we use what we call a "6-Pack" Process, that is designed to help individuals and businesses during times of transition. It is a process that you may find helpful for developing a plan as you transition to a post-COVID-19 career or business reopening. I will explain how it works...
As we continue to move forward through this pandemic, we must remember that things are changing and will keep changing. Our levels of competence are more important than ever before. Changes are already taking shape for how we will do business and how we will lead our employees after this is complete.
In this video, I'm picking up where I left off last time in regards to the concept of BALANCE by focusing on the letter A for Affectivity. Listen in as I describe what affectivity is, how it applies to your organization, and why it's essential.
As we embark upon 2020, I would like to focus on the concept of BALANCE. I invite you to join me as I break this concept down over the next several videos. In this video, I’ll start with B: Business ROI.
When it comes to talent, we often spend the bulk of our time focusing on the positive aspects of it, such as recruiting effectively and retaining employees. However, there is another part to the talent equation we don't always pay enough attention to -- firing.
Effectively identifying and bringing the very best individuals into your organization - those that are going to make the team more efficient, more productive, and deliver better results for the company overall - has to start with YOU.
I was recently involved in a bad accident which taught me an invaluable lesson about the importance of having quick reaction and response times. This lesson can be used by business owners who wish to grow their companies by improving their reactions and response times.
In today’s organizations, Human Resources continues to evolve from a pure “personnel” department into a more visible, influential role. Achieving BALANCE affects top-line growth and bottom-line results that are sustainable.
The late tennis great, Arthur Ashe, once said, "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." In today's video, I touch on a few ways we can apply his inspirational words to our own journeys as we strive to become more positive and effective leaders.
Without a doubt, finding balance across an organization is critical for its success. In this video, I touch upon the importance of establishing personal balance and how you can translate it to the workplace.
As I explain to the high school students in this video clip, the worst mistake you can make is thinking you can just “wing it” during the interview process. No matter your level of experience or your skillset, you need to put forth the effort and prepare for the interview to get the job you desire.
It's important to remember that we all make mistakes. It's even more important to know it's okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them and do not allow them to define who we are going forward.
In this industry, we often say, "The right talent makes a difference," and it really does. However, it's also good to keep in mind that the right talent only makes a difference if, as leaders, we are flexible enough to benefit from the value these people bring to the organization.
Here is a clip of my talk from ABWA-Camelot’s January membership meeting where I talked about different types of company culture. Knowing the pros and cons of each lends to improved talent acquisition and retention.
