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.
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.

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.
Nothing we do in business, nothing we try to differentiate in the market place, nothing in our long-term strategy can or should be attempted without understanding and living the delicate balance of talent and people.
