    Support Coworkers & Colleagues

    Photo by Brett Jordan on Unsplash. Quietly, I have supported my coworkers and colleagues. It’s not something I advertise – and I am not advertising it here. No, it’s not worth advertising. The focus isn’t on me. It’s on them, and that’s where my focus belongs insofar as supporting their ambitions to meet promise and […]

  • To Be Managed

    To Be Managed

    Photo by Boba Jaglicic on Unsplash. A handful of professors and researchers at the London Business School got together to author Business trends to watch in 2023 (link). Comments made by Dr. Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice in Organisational Behaviour, got me thinking. From her forecast, those who are managed may find gainful insights; […]

    AI Will Be Able To Do This

    Photo by Markus Winkler on Unsplash. When I was a kid, my dad made a prediction. There’d be a computer on every student’s desk by the time my children were my age. He wasn’t far off. While I never had children, students these days have miniaturized computers in their pockets, purses, backpacks, and even individually […]

    Mapping Strategy

    Mapping strategy is depicting complex intentionality. In this post I explain what is strategy, the differences between planning, intent and strategy; and I discuss the prominence of uniqueness and interconnectedness in strategies.

  • Fitness for Ambition

    Fitness for Ambition

    Fitness for ambition is a dynamic pursuit. I define it as what dynamically works for us and against us in the pursuit of ways to make us feel rich and flourish in doing so. Important, what makes each of us feel rich means something different to everyone, and through our fitness for ambition, requires activation. Activate that fitness for ambition and you’ll be poised for a myriad of imaginative, creative and innovative opportunities!

  • Failure

    Failure

    Failure means you’re trying. Maybe it didn’t work out; maybe it won’t work out. Good faith and effort was or will be there. You’ll inevitably learn something along the way.

  • The Employee

    The Employee

    Employees aren’t resources. They’re precious resources, and that’s why employees are the company.

  • Systems vs. Teams

    Systems vs. Teams

It’s when we errantly swap the two that we sacrifice the viability of strategy, and the humanity of those who make organizations go.
