Are you a Remote-Controlled Leader?

I remember the day of December 4th, 2002 when something inside of me as a leader had changed. Just three months earlier, I had mustered the courage to submit my resignation letter to my immediate boss.


How Leaders Make the Greatest Impact

In my work as a speaker, I visit large organizations worldwide. At one of these companies, I met Jaden. He didn’t carry a dream of climbing the corporate ladder. He was content with his role as a manager. However, deep inside, he aspired to create a lasting impact on his people and organization. 


Every Company Can Achieve Transformational Change

Last year, I traveled to San Jose to facilitate a workshop for an IT company that was undergoing massive change and reorganization to keep up their market share and thrive in an economy of innovation and disruption. Few senior leaders spoke to me about how challenging it had been for them to bring about a transformational change versus developmental change until they had participated in my session. Many companies, from small-medium business to Fortune 500, face similar challenges.


How to Deal with Change and Uncertainty

Our workplaces are ever-evolving. Workplace changes are accelerating. Early January of 2019, I traveled to Mexico to facilitate a workshop for a group of executives. I shared the platform with seven presenters from around the globe. During lunch, the discussion revolved around rapid changes that take place globally in the business environment today and how hard every company works to prepare and adapt to the changes. Everyone everywhere wants to be ahead in the game. And it is necessary to remain at the top in this environment, you’ve got to go that extra mile and prepare ahead of time for the changes. However, what we fail to realize is that while all mechanisms are geared towards preparing for these changes outwardly, we are unprepared from within. And because of this, there is constant tension and fear that looms within us due to which your full potential isn’t seen at work. You really aren't giving your best despite the efforts and hard work that you put in.
