The first part of a calendar year is an appropriate time to think about the critical values that will best support us as we pursue the year’s goals.

You have heard the saying, “when momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy?”

The same can be said for today’s workplace environment.

What happens when you rely too much on key players in your organization?

Will your team be able to step up should those key individuals become indisposed or leave?

In order for a company to not only survive, but thrive - they must have strong leadership at the helm.

In the years we have spent developing leadership skills in business professionals, we have run across some common misconceptions. If you are committed to leading your team to success, you will want to follow the 7 Steps in this article.

You can’t reach goals if everyone is allowed to decide for himself how to reach them.  It’s not uncommon for a sales manager to let the sales staff have their way.  The result of such a management practice is chaos.  Reduce the stress and chaos by getting the sales team to follow the same process.
