    Episode 18 - Building your base camp

    People who climb Mount Everest talk of establishing a "base camp;" a place of safety and certainty in preparation for the ascent. I have not participated in that amazing achievement, but I picked up the phrase a long time ago, and have used the analogy in my career to sustain me through some rather tough “climbs” along the way. It's essential that leaders maintain a base camp throughout their careers; to sustain sanity, to protect themselves from stress, and to prepare for, and recover from, stressful events. After all, our careers are a “climb,” are they not?

    The person you work for is 90% of your employee experience
    Over the course of four decades I worked for upwards of 30 different  managers and leaders in different companies (I was a contract tech for a  while so I got to see many different organizations). Some of them were  outstanding, intelligent, just, insightful, creative, and easy to talk  with. They had a way to improve the day, every day. They had flashes of  brilliance that were utterly inspiring. They knew how to talk (and  listen) to anyone, at any level in the organization. They were my employee experience.

    Episode 16 - Managing the Hard Cases - Termination

    Much leadership literature is dedicated to visioning, innovation, production and achievement, yet little is said about the tough stuff. In this way, business imitates life. Few of us want bad news, fewer still want to admit there is a problem, and fewer still want to deal with conflict. And yet, leading people invariably raises the issues of “hard cases;” those team members who raise havoc that requires the intervention of termination.

    Episode 14 - Understanding a leader's role in managing resistance to change

    "Resistance" is brought up again and again as a source of change failure, and, thankfully, is receiving some academic attention, since resistance to change is not always a malicious attempt to derail an initiative.  Resistance is more complex than people who say "I don't want to do this."  Executives play a major role in managing resistance. Understand that working with natural human autonomy is far more effective than forcing people to act.
