Often we think that soldiers are solitary heroes. This is almost never the case in that they train, work and survive in units, often in critical pairs. And often we think they enlist out of patriotism. That contains truth for some.* Actually, more enlist in […]

Thanks to so many of you who commented on last week’s blog, offering feedback on the “Clear the Air” series and expressing interest in future topics. A good number asked me to write about “thoughts on leading as American citizens in this unsettling time.” With […]

Can You Help Me Help You

10/29/2018

I have felt confused and disappointed for the last three weeks, when I wrote the 3-part series on how to clear the air with “I feel…when you…because” statements, and when I did not get any comments from readers; because I feel like this method offers […]

Today a combined Reading for Leading and LeadingX2 (leading by two). I will keep this reasonably short by introducing a topic, two steps, and then continuing next week. In any strong partnership there come times when you need to “clear the air.” Your […]

I Would Be Honored if You Would Listen to Thoughts About Listening Leadership

9/24/2018

I approach this column as perhaps the “most” I have written in 20 years. It’s most important. Most controversial. Most already-written about. And most tricky. I am writing about Mr. Kavanaugh and Ms. Blasey Ford. What’s tricky? Well, first what lens will I use, and […]

3 quick stories of leadership with the same moral – and music – to the stories. “Men and women on the street” was a favorite segment on my radio show Everyday Leadership. Problem was none of my student assistants wanted to put a microphone in […]

Learning Leadership from a Good Week in the Washingtons

9/10/2018
More
In Washington DC and the State of Washington, we saw some crazy border crossings last week. Some people led, literally, got out in front, and flouted rules, laws and conventional wisdom. Risky stuff. Maybe stupid. Maybe wrong. Have your views, but stay with me for […]

I offer three resources today for leading the leader. Yes, you leading you. Jennifer and I ran a half marathon on Saturday. The field was sparse. Jen had literally left me in the dust, and I was on my own. I, poorly conditioned, heard the […]

More
Maybe it’s not just us humans. “Monkey see. Monkey do,” we used to say to each other as kids. But as humans, we can raise our leadership skills by reflecting on those who excel at it. The passing of John McCain has set many to […]

[Approximately twice a month I will be focusing Read2Lead on the specific context of LeadingX2.] Every manager has the capacity with every direct report to build a relationship in which the two: “lead by two.” The advantages of turning a direct report into a peer […]

Leaders Stretch and Will You

7/23/2018

It’s pretty inescapable that individuals as leaders, and organizations as leaders . . . stretch. A couple examples.

The most wonderful thing – about being human is you get to choose what you want. Yet, it’s hard. It’s so much easier to be told what to want, or to have habits take over, or to jump to doing whatever seems like it should […]
