The Four Pillars of an Effortless Experience that Grows Customer Loyalty

6/23/2020
We all want our customers to be happy. But what happens when they’re not? No matter how delighted your customers are when your products and services deliver as advertised, at some point, a shipment will get buried in a blizzard, software will crash, a green employee will say the wrong thing at the worst time … or a global pandemic will disrupt your supply chain. According to customer service expert Matt Dixon, how your company addresses those bumps in the road is far more critical to...

Former Xerox Exec Encourages CEOs to “Debate and Commit” to Stay Ahead of Change

6/9/2020
If you really want to grow your business fast, you need to build a team that will disagree with you. Does that sound counter-intuitive? Well, it worked for Abraham Lincoln. Our greatest president famously assembled a “team of rivals” in his cabinet because he wanted to work with smart people who would challenge – and improve – his thinking. So what does your “cabinet” look like? Is your C-suite full of Yes Men and Yes Women? Have you created an atmosphere where your best people are afraid...

If you want your company to stay successful, then maintaining a meaningful growth rate needs to be one of your BIG annual goals.

Apple Computer Pioneer David Sun Says, "Be a Sponge"

2/25/2020
Vision. Cash. People. Relationships. Learning. Only the CEO can tackle those key responsibilities. If those five things aren’t the focus of your day, then you’re wasting your time and hurting your company. Like cutting the ad budget when you have to reduce costs, CEOs often push learning to the back burner in favor of higher-profile things like casting a vision or visiting top clients. And while vision and meeting clients are critical, so too is taking the time to learn and stay on top of...

Former Kendall-Jackson Winery President Shares 4 Steps to Break Through a Business Growth Plateau

1/21/2020
A successful business is a marathon, not a sprint. And just like long-distance runners and Ironman competitors, good CEOs have to prepare for “hitting the wall”: that inevitable point in your company’s progress where you’re just not progressing anymore. Growth stagnates. Gears grind. The next BIG goal is one step in front of you, but you can’t find the energy to move your feet. In her career as an entrepreneur and executive, Ramona Capello earned a reputation for breathing life back into...

12/17/2019
One of the biggest challenges companies face is how to hire great people at a reasonable price in one of the tightest labor markets on record. There's simply not enough qualified talent to fill everybody's needs, especially if your company is early in its growth journey and trying to catch the giants in your field. Smart companies are thinking more broadly and more globally about how to solve this pain point. But lingering misconceptions about offshoring can discourage CEOs from...

How this Founder/CEO Took a Sabbatical to Find What was Missing Despite His Success

7/9/2019
