Don’t Underestimate the Power of Continuous Learning

Don’t Underestimate the Power of Continuous Learning

The desire to continuously learn, grow and improve ourselves is a fundamental part of who we are. It’s engrained in each and every one of us. Dan Pink, the author of Drive, calls this concept our intrinsic motivation, which is our internal drive to do a job well because it matters to us on a […]

Leadership Styles of The X-Men

Leadership Styles of The X-Men

The X-Men have always been a popular comic series. But even with its popularity, it is surprising that the X-Men movies were some of the first to “breakthrough” to mainstream success, before the likes of much more established characters in the comic book lexicon like The Hulk or Captain America. I believe that the success […]

The Skinny on Microlearning

The Skinny on Microlearning

Ever sit and watch a fish tank? It can be pretty relaxing. The fish however, don’t look relaxed at all. They dart around erratically from spot to spot, stopping momentarily before they shoot off somewhere else, on a constant quest for who knows what. It looks a lot like we do when we’re jumping around Facebook, hopping over […]

Eat, Drink and Be Merry Your Way to a Sharper Brain

Eat, Drink and Be Merry Your Way to a Sharper Brain

Look in on any college classroom or lecture hall and you’ll see students diligently tapping away on laptops and tablets as they take notes on the day’s lecture (and of course not messaging friends or surfing the web). Conventional wisdom says this is far more efficient and effective than the “olden days” of notebook and […]

Getting Change to Stick Starts With Training

Getting Change to Stick Starts With Training

More often than not, humans will put up a fight when asked to make a change. Change doesn’t feel natural and it certainly isn’t easy. Given 70% of major change initiatives fail, it’s understandable that we have the instinct to run for the hills when presented with a major change management project. They usually fail and […]

The Leadership Styles of The Simpsons

The Leadership Styles of The Simpsons

The Simpsons: One of the longest-running shows in television history, and by no coincidence, one of the very best shows of all time. What started out as a crudely animated short on The Tracy Ullman Sow has turned into a full-blown pop culture phenomenon. I am a massive fan of the show, and I’ve quoted […]

Customer Success is a Team Sport

Customer Success is a Team Sport

Like many sports fans, I became wrapped up in the recent Olympics. I can’t explain why, but when the Olympics roll around, I find myself on the edge of my seat watching sports more than usual.  Typically, I pass over any ordinary game, opting to watch an old episode of Seinfeld.  During the Olympics, I was […]

Back to the grind: Understanding what motivates high-performers

Back to the grind: Understanding what motivates high-performers

Summer and the long days of sunlight are winding to a close. Your employees are finishing up the last of their summer vacations of beach days, mountain hikes, over-shopping and Netflix binging. On that first Monday morning after vacation, who among your employees is waking up at the first sound of the alarm (or even […]

Back to school, Back to learning

Back to school, Back to learning

It’s that time of year! Across the country, students are heading back to school (and parents are rejoicing!). With new backpacks, supplies and books in tow, students are ready to kick off the school year. The long days of summer might be winding down, but there’s no denying there’s a certain refreshing energy in the air this […]

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want

Has employee loyalty become an oxymoron? Engagement and retention surveys show many employees – especially Millenials – don’t plan to stick around much longer than a couple of years. The Deloitte 2016 Millenial Survey found that 44 percent of those who have been at a job for two years would quit if given the choice.  […]
