Great Leaders Teach

Leadership is today’s buzz word akin to management in the 1980’s. You probably have been asked at least once, “Are you a leader or manager?” Of course the right answer is “leader” because it is incumbent that all of us must be one, at least to be relevant in today’s organization. But how to become great leader? Robin Sharma once in his book said that a leader decides which mountains to climb and a manager decides how to climb it efficiently. I think that analogy makes it easier to distinguish the function of leader v. manager. I juggle both most of the time and I believe most of us do the same. Right?

How to Drive Innovation by Creating a Lion’s Den

If you are looking for an engaging and fun way to spark innovation among employees you will like this idea that I call; “Lion’s Den.” This interesting employee event is loosely built on the concept of the television shows, “Shark’s Tank” and “Dragon’s Den,” in which, hopeful entrepreneurs are given an opportunity to pitch their business idea to prospective investors with the hope of getting them to help fund their business. Similarly, the premise of “Lion’s Den” is to encourage employees to pitch their innovative new ideas and concepts for the business to the leadership team with the hope that the leadership will recognize the value of their ideas and implement them. The payback they will receive, if they successfully “sell” their innovation to the powers that be, is reward and recognition from the organization with the anticipation that this will lead to improved professional progress and status.

The Great Digital Divide

There is a definite momentum gap between the business community, and providers of digital web services. I see this gap being demonstrated on a daily basis. There are many thousands of business owners in a huge range of different areas that are not aware of the benefits available to them by partnering with a good quality web services provider. Certainly these days a significant number of businesses see the benefits of participating with the online space in some way. Many of these have some type of main website, or they might invest with pay-per-click advertising, and many have ventured onto Facebook with a dedicated business page. However, I think there is still a huge lag between the development of digital marketing services, their range and quality, and the awareness of the business community as to the effectiveness and variety of these services, and often what each one can provide for their business when they come to consider their investment. This gap is made up of actual awareness of the field, and also trust in the providers themselves.
