Standards. We live in a world of standards. We apply standards to everything: accounting, the environment, quality, behavior, health, safety, employment, trade, professionalism, food, transportation, technology, and the list goes on and on. We have standards we have to meet at work, standards we have to meet at home, and standards we set for ourselves and those we apply to others. Everything has a standard because everyone has a standard they apply to everything. Show notes at...

You know what I think about change management? There are a number of change management theories and processes “on the books” today.

36. The Hypercompetition Paradox

9/2/2019
Hypercompetition is a state of perpetual change in the rules of competition within an industry. Since these rules are in a constant state of flux, organizations can't sustain competitive advantage forcing them to vigorously and continuously compete in cost and quality, timing and know-how, strongholds and market invasion, and the deep pockets of competitors. Requiring a constant reinventing of competitive advantage, an organization achieves the greatest advantage by competing against its own...

You know what I think about strategy? In this episode I share some thoughts on developing business strategy. Sun Tzu taught us centuries ago that gaining a competitive advantage comes during the planning stage, not with the execution of the plan. For once the plan is put in motion, our strategy becomes apparent. I'm also very excited also introduce a new podcast I've published with a friend and former colleague from my Air Force days. It's called The Digression Podcast" and as the name...

6/10/2019
You know what I think about Leadership and Management? You lead people and you manage things. This is the accepted axiom and implies that leadership and management go hand-in-hand.

31. Interview with "Indie" Author Anita Rodgers

5/27/2019
You know what I think about independent publishing? Book publishing is a process that includes acquisition, copy editing, production, printing (physical or digital), marketing, and distribution. Until recently, this was accomplished by publishing companies that accept manuscripts from writers, usually through an agent, and carry out the publication process, paying the author a royalty from the book’s sales. These arrangements often come at the cost of at least some of the author's...

5/13/2019
You know what I think about drug addiction? Drug addiction is a devastating illness that wrecks lives and families, but unless the issue touches us personally we don't see it, do we? It doesn't really affect us, right? Wrong. Almost 15 million Americans suffer from addiction and 11 million of them are gainfully employed--they work for us. And we may never know it because they're afraid. Afraid of losing their jobs, their families, of being stereotyped. So they hide their addiction and keep...

4/29/2019
You know what I think about the hiring process? If you do a Google search for "how to hire the right people" you'll find a plethora of posts on leadership qualities and attributes, but there's not a lot of process-oriented information. There’s a lot of advice for job candidates, but if you’re a hiring authority, well, we just never really got a lot of training, did we?

The Health Services Inspection or HSI is a medical compliance inspection conducted jointly by the AF Inspector General and the Joint Commission. Anyway, for myself and my follow airmen, the announcement meant more work...

27. MD Coaches with Rhonda Crowe (Part 2)

4/6/2019
Health care today is complicated and highly-complex with a mountain of rules and regulations that govern practically every aspect of the doctor-patient relationship. The real challenge for doctors today is that their culture—the physician culture—hasn’t really changed. Physicians are at the top of the health care hierarchy and are the ones ultimately accountable for patient outcomes, and yet they’re almost treated as commodities by health care managers. In this podcast, I share Part 2 of my...

26. MD Coaches with Rhonda Crowe (Part 1)

3/9/2019
You know what I think about personal growth? In the business world today, the words “mentor” and “coach” are very common, and they’re often used interchangeably. Although both are extremely valuable resources, in reality, they couldn’t be more different, there is a distinction between the two that make them as different as night and day. A mentor is an advisor, someone who is successful in his role, and readily shares his knowledge or expertise with others, but he doesn’t have to really know...

25. The Amazing Me Project with Paul Gallagher

You know what I think about project management? Historically speaking, project management was around long before it was known as "project management".

It wasn’t until the early 20th century that we started to explore Project Management as a formal scientific process. Since then it’s evolved into a field of study and a career path. And it’s still...
