A blog for busy corporate executives wanting to improve the leadership culture of their organization.

  • 68% of your employees may not want to be there. According to Gallup, only 32% of employees are engaged in the American workplace. Worldwide, it’s even worse: 87% of employees are disengaged at significant levels. The leaders and managers in your company clearly face an uphill climb to build more productive teams.

  • The people in your company that most often achieve leadership positions are the ones who work hard to produce results. But the results your leaders want won’t depend solely on their hard work. If they only count hard work as success, your leaders and managers can get tunnel vision. Your leaders need more to get the results they want. They need to think about getting the results they want by building the team they need.

  • How to Create a Positive Work Culture

    Culture is what gets your organization to its destination. A family can plan the most amazing road trip, with stops at cities, landmarks, and beautiful views, but if their car has no wheels, no fuel, and nothing but conflict between family members, they are going nowhere. The same is true for companies like yours. A company can plan an amazing product launch, for example, complete with marketing plans, production facilities, and logistical support, but if employees don’t care, aren’t on the same page, and teams feel disconnected from one another, the launch will likely be a disaster.

  • Effective Communication in Virtual Teams

    If interaction fuels action, as the Law of Communication states, then it’s no wonder so many virtual teams in your company might be struggling to get things done. Without effective communication, virtual team members are often left asking the same question as the pre-school aged boy eating an apple in the backseat of the car. “Daddy,” he said, “Why is my apple turning brown?”

  • Progress requires change. That's a fact. As your company grows, your teams will have to change to move forward and achieve results. Your leaders can’t make the progress your company needs to make while standing still. One change progress has brought to companies like yours is the development of virtual teams. Teams empowered to work together outside a physical workplace can help your managers grow, but they can also jeopardize that growth if leaders forget the one thing they must remember to make virtual teams work.

  • It wasn’t so long ago that science fiction portrayed the workplace of the future as using flying cars to get to the office where robot assistants would write memos. But technology has reimagined what’s possible for the workplace environment in organizations like yours.Now a growing number of workers don’t even show up in the office as half of all organizations use virtual teams with members spread across the country or even around the globe. Virtual teams offer distinct advantages for leaders in your company, including the potential to boost productivity and employee flexibility while reducing the time and cost of travel.
