What’s Your Agility Ability?

By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0

I have a question: “What’s Your Agility Ability?” That question is based on an article I had published back in 2017 when the word agile only referred to the fast changing world of technology. Now it seems everyone is using the term. How can I help you to increase your agility ability as a leader on any team? I introduced the Agile Leader Matrix™ when my business strategy coaching clients asked for a systematic model they could use with any initiative they were working on. The four quadrant matrix identifies […]

How To Get Your Team To Go From Good to Better! The term disruption has been quickly gaining momentum since the early 2000’s. The challenge is that it means different things to different people.  So for today, let’s decide that the disruption we are talking about is how to do what you are doing today better than how you did it yesterday.

Accountability is by far one of the most pressing issues I come across as I work with teams who are striving to improve their results.  It is the issue we come back to over and over and one that frustrates many leaders.  Accountability is the exact opposite of “that’s not my job”.  It is about follow through and follow up and ultimately simply getting things done when you said you would.  It is recognizing that others need you to do your work so they can do theirs. Accountability is doing […]

By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0

This is a tough topic for me to write and speak on.  I committed to recording a video for you every week just last month and frankly I blew it!  I missed a week and it happened so quickly and so easily.  As I reflected on this misstep, I realized this is exactly what happens in the organizations I work with!  Commitments are made with the best of intentions, with fervor and dedication and intensity.  Yet, commitments are broken daily.  Why is it so hard to keep our commitments? I […]

A 2018 study from Stanford University showed that a positive attitude in children towards their school work could be just as important as their IQ. How does that transfer to adults and leadership? Well in all the years of business coaching…I have rarely had an employee complain to me about their Boss’s technical skills.  Yes, you guessed it…it was usually about their approach.  So, let’s flip it around.

“I am easily satisfied with the very best”. This quote by Winston Churchill reminds me of the difference between Agile leaders and average leaders in healthcare. Agile leaders always look for opportunities to improve and never settle for ‘good enough’. Here are 5 traits that I have found common in Agile leaders: 1. Agile leaders are self-aware. They are confident and willing to take action, even in situations they have never encountered before. This powerful combination followed by intense self-reflection allows them to understand their strengths and weaknesses and adjust […]

I am often shocked by how many initiatives are left to languish after so much time and energy was put into a program or project launch. How about you? Have you ever gone to one of your Department Heads or Managers and asked how a particular project was going and they looked back at you with such palpable discomfort you just knew the project was forgotten or even worse yet they look at you with a blank stare?
