World Leaders G20 France 2011I write about leadership myths, and bust them one-by–one. 

It is simply impossible to become a great leader without being a great communicator. I hope you noticed the previous sentence didn’t refer to being a great talker – big difference. The key to becoming a skillful communicator is rarely found in what has been taught in the world of academia. From our earliest days in the classroom we are trained to focus on enunciation, vocabulary, presence, delivery, grammar, syntax and the like.


“If you don’t devise the right corporate culture one will be created for you,” says Ron Cain, CEO of TMSi, a national logistics firm.

“Therefore, if you’re going to have a culture, it’s up to management to make sure you have the right one.”

How important is culture in your company?

A workplace culture can be productive or disruptive, adversarial or collaborative, and, ultimately, profitable or unprofitable. It is up to management to decide – or allow someone else to define a company’s culture.

Everyone, whether they believe it or not, judges themselves by the company that they keep and, for 40 hours a week, the company they keep are their co-workers. People also forge a significant amount of their self-image from their workplace – what they do and with whom they work inevitably becomes part of who they are. This obvious truism has an impact on every office, every business, and every shop floor in America.

Bullying in the workplace is a problem that is worldwide and extremely complicated. 

It can cause a significant health and safety issue and one of the most common causes of workplace related stress, psychological injury, or even suicide.

How do you audit Santa?

Barry sat primly on the edge of his chair, deliberately ignoring the lure of the plump cushions that nestled behind his back. His stylus hovering importantly over the screen of his shiny PDA, Barry turned his best steely glare on his target, unaware that the expression made him look remarkably like a myopic ferret. His prim mouth tightened when the other man tried unsuccessfully to stifle yet another deep chuckle.

Secret of life if you can dream it you can do it

An eight-year-old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and asked:

“I understand you’re a very wise man. I’d like to know the secret of life.”

The old man looked down at the youngster and replied:

“I’ve thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words

Establishing Key Relationships

Being in business on your own can be a lonely existence.  It is generally accepted that a focused group of individuals working as a team will outperform the members of the team working as individuals.  So when you are running your own business you have to look to, in effect, what is an 'extended' team.  All members of the extended team are working with you to help you achieve your business goals.  So, a ‘one man business’ can still operate as a team.  


CultureWhen we talk about culture, we are typically referring to the pattern of development reflected in a society’s system of knowledge, ideology, values, laws and day-to-day ritual.  The influence of a host culture is rarely uniform.  Just as individuals have different personalities while sharing much in common, so too do groups and organisations.
