"The new world of work requires a new lens and skill set to ensure career success. You must create your own body of work as you operate in different organizational systems and structures."
"Stories of distrust are overflowing from the news. Worse yet, leaders are leaving our world vulnerable. The trust crisis appears to be an inescapable cycle, but we believe there is hope."
"In the wake of the great recession, in businesses and organizations around the world, we have a crisis on our hands. But it's not the crisis we all think it is and talk about. It's worse. ... We don't have an Employee Engagement crisis. We have a Leadership Engagement crisis."
"What if I told you many successful entrepreneurs didn't start with a compelling vision or indeed a workable business plan? Guess what: That's true. ... Xceptional execution is about taking a relatively simple idea from brainstorm to breakout hit."
"Inspiration is the most used and abused word in our daily existence. Whether it is business, politics, sports, or any other endeavor of life, inspiration is considered to be the panacea or silver bullet which can transform personal lives and propel organizations to unbelievable heights."
"Let's get a few things straight right from the start: Leadership is not about coming to work on time, dressing professionally or having a firm handshake. ...
