Refreshing Leadership


Greetings, Last week I reported on the unusual and refreshing approach to people by an experienced manager. If you remember he was advising another manager and made this statement, "Your number one asset is your PEOPLE and you must invest in THEM ALL THE TIME. Develop plans to make them...

Refreshing Leadership


I received an interesting and encouraging email just this morning that actually relates to the four categories of managers I mentioned in a previous Energy Message. If you recall the four categories are high focus-high energy, low focus-low energy, low focus-high energy and high focus-low energy. The smallest, but most...

The Person in the Mirror


Hi, Here's one hot off the press that I think you will really enjoy. I was shutting down for the day on Friday and a guy called me from the New England area. He had gotten my name from one of my clients and needed a little coaching on a...

What is Energy?


I had an insightful email in response to yesterday's survey. The lady who sent the email is one of the best marketing people I have every known, very bright and energetic. She suggested it might be helpful to better define energy and especially what I mean when I talk about...

Energy Survey - What are your needs?


One of the key characteristics of successful people is their ability to focus energy – another is to understand the needs of their customers. I’d like to do both of these and you can help. I've developed a survey designed to provide me with suggestions concerning your “energy needs.” In...

Beware the Barrenness of Busy Part 3


I've really enjoyed thinking and writing about the research Sumantra and Bruch did on the busy, ineffective manager. Here's something to think about; 'how' do you suppose those managers became so busy in the first place. I know a lot of busy managers, some are effective and some are not...

Beware the Barrenness of Busy


Busy does not always mean effective. In the study by Sumantra and Bruch they found busy-ness by a manager does not necessarily mean the manager is being effective in his job. The 10% that were effective had the ability to combine energy and focus to get the results they wanted,...

Energy boost Creativity


Just received some insightful statistics from a colleague. The really cool thing about people knowing how interested I am in this energy thing is that they are always sending me stuff. Keep it up! This is the latest I've read on energy. A 10 year research project that focused on...

Leaders Listen and Create Exchange


I had a great response to "When Leaders Don't Listen" from a friend who is in management. This is what he stated, "I find it interesting that many of the poorest listeners are the ones who call the most meetings. These meetings are often not about exchanging ideas but about...
