Transaction or Aspiration?

How you define yourself can indicate how successful you will be. In recent weeks I’ve been having many discussions with business owners about who they are, and what they aspire to be. In these conversations two types of leaders emerge: Transactional and Aspirational. Transactional business people focus on the here and now. They look at […]

Leadership Within – Evaluations

“Evaluations are the single greatest indicator of your long term success in business. They support accountability and create performance environments.” Organizations without a strong evaluation framework are what we call operationally focused. Each day they bring a new set of challenges, which must be resolved prior to the execution of other business tasks or goals. […]

Leadership Within – Mentoring and Coaching

A Mentor and a Coach are very different from each other, yet their skills can be intertwined, depending o the situation you find yourself in. As a coach, you may need the person being coached to reflect and consider, before you can coach for performance. As a Mentor, you may need to coach people in […]

Trust goes beyond words to actions, reactions and practices. Trust creates a more cohesive, functional and effective team.   A recent survey of nearly 13,000 workers in all job levels and industries […]

Leadership Within – The Ladder of Influence

The other day, my daughter and I were talking about my parenting style. She told me how easy it was to bring issues to me to talk about because I don’t freak out. While I appreciated the sentiment, (I think it means I’m doing ok as a parent), I admitted to her I haven’t always […]

Leadership Within – Trust is Everything

“Trust is an Emotional Response to a logical Framework.” In other words, we can predict, create lose and gain trust. This is quite simply done through the behaviours we exhibit to others or others exhibit to us. Similarly, someone can appear trustworthy to you, when they meet your criteria for feeling the emotion of trust.  […]

Leadership Within – Retaining Employees

What do they need? Employees cite a large number of reasons for leaving their employment, so its equally important to the retention conversation to discuss why your employees may stay. In every workplace across North America, there are both internal and external forces which influence our retention rates for our employees. External factors may include: […]

Leadership Within – Why Employees Leave

Recent surveys and studies have underscored the importance of the leader’s influence over the work unit. In fact, most employees surveyed in these projects cited “disputes with their leaders” as their primary reason for leaving their employment. In many cases these disputes can be attributed to communication-based misinterpretations, although others can be clearly linked to […]
