Competitive Advantage

September 27, 2012

What makes your company different? Do you know? Do your employees know? Do your customers know? Today, I will search the internet approximately 50 times, for something I need. That’s an average day, when I’m not on a mission to buy something. If I’m actually purchasing something, that # increases exponentially. The internet provides every […]

Daily Goal

September 24, 2012

I downloaded the Bible App™ for my phone about 6 months ago. It reminds me every day to read the next chapter of the Bible. It allows me to highlight my favorite passages, and share them on Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail if I choose to do so. It stores bookmarks that I find interesting. It is […]

Victory Formation

September 20, 2012

If anyone watched the New York Giants vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on Sept 16th, they saw the coach (Greg Schiano) of Tampa Bay try something that doesn’t usually happen in the NFL. It is an unwritten rule in the NFL, that when an offensive team is in the “Victory” formation, that nothing exciting is supposed […]

Growth

Sink or Swim

September 10, 2012

Do you over-manage your staff, to increase their odds in success, at the same time potentially limiting their learning experience? Or do you let them sink, or swim, on their own…assisting them when necessary, but letting them discover the good, bad, and ugly without too much help from the leadership in your business. Either way has its […]

Mistakes

September 6, 2012

When I was young, I was a bad little brother. My older sister will have you believe that I chased her around the house with a steak knife. I can say, without a doubt, that. did. not. happen….more than once. AND, it was a butter knife. Now that I have children of my own, I […]

Skepticism

September 4, 2012

I’m going to steal an idea from Seth Godin’s blog that I read last week. Skepticism can be healthy, at times. It can keep you from wandering too close to the edge, and prevent you from making that rash decision. It can keep you safe when you are wondering whether you should take that leap of […]
