Five Strategies for Leaders in Law to Remain Culturally Fit

By Damian D. “Skipper” Pitts
Chair, Organizational Development, N2Growth

Albert Einstein said; “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that we used when we created them.” In thinking about this statement and in light of the events across the nation regarding the crisis in law enforcement, there are five strategies Leaders in Law can adopt to elevate their agency to the next level. Whether the agency is experiencing challenges or not, these five strategies will provide the thought-leadership to navigate the rough waters in the sea of conflict. Leaders in Law must first understand that the fabric of leadership is the strength that tightly holds the culture together and leadership must remain in a continuous state of forward-motion at every level of the organization. With that, all Leaders in law must be willing to adopt a different approach to achieve improved outcomes and results from their leaders; more specifically, they must…

Bad Leaders Don’t Forgive

By Grant Wattie
President, N2Growth Australia

“The weak can never forgive.

Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.”

~Mahatma Ghandi

Today I’m writing about a topic that is rarely talked about in the leadership domain, especially amongst corporate leaders. Now, before you poo-poo the idea, please allow me to explain further. 

In my opinion, forgiveness can’t be ignored, because to do so is to defy a natural law like gravity. Forgiveness is one of the primary foundational ways of being for extraordinary leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Jesus and Ghandi.

By Damian D. “Skipper” Pitts
Chair, Organizational Development, N2Growth

Making any progress, process transformation or change across American communities and throughout the global business communities as usual is always hard and usually requires a significant investment of resources – people, finance and effort. So, whenever a leader or an organization adopts any new strategy, technology platform, methodology or approach, that adoption has to be driven by both a need and with leadership clarity.

Living The Values: A Lesson Learned From A Sales Rally

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

An organization knows that its values are authentic when employees put them into practice.

Recently I attended an annual sales meeting for Moorehead Communications, the owner of The Cellular Connection (TCC), a premium reseller for Verizon. The meeting took the form of a rally with presentations from senior executives as well as a healthy sprinkling of humorous videos. Day One closed with the presentation of the Employee of the Year Award. There were five finalists; each was interviewed on video. Watching what they said echoed the key messages of the CEO, Scott Moorehead, who had spoken earlier in the day.

Put ‘Moxie’ Into Your Leadership

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

Once upon a time when we admired someone for their grit and determination we said they had moxie. It’s an old-fashioned word popularized in movies of the Thirties and Forties about those who battled the odds. It’s a word that has always stuck with me, and for that reason I decided to focus my newest book on what it means to have guts, gumption and perseverance –moxie!

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

The NFL is sitting pretty.

You bet! After a series of widely publicized domestic assault cases, repeatedly botched attempts to impose discipline, and the performance of a commissioner who has been AWOL for most of the recent crisis, the fans keep flocking to the gates and even more fans are watching on Sunday (as well as Thursday and Monday).

What Can Leaders Gain By Acting Like Politicians?

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

“You have to link managing with politics.”

That was the way that Eduardo Campos, who was governor of the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, believed that public officials needed to lead. According to his obituary in The Economist, Campos was a technocrat beloved by international bankers but also someone with the common touch who liked to meet and mingle with his constituents. It was on a campaign trip for Brazil’s presidency that he was killed.

Question For Leaders: What’s Your Value?

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

What do you think the biggest problem facing leaders today is?

Sanjog Aul, host of CIO Talk Radio, asked me that question during an off-air discussion and I am glad I was off the air because I couldn’t not think of what to say. Our on-air discussion was focusing on time management and while I think every executive struggles with the perception of not having enough time, I don’t think that biggest problem facing leaders. Good executives figure out how to manage their time.

Stand Your Ground – Even When You’re On TV

By John Baldoni
Chair, Leadership Development, N2Growth

What do you do when the person sitting across from you fires a question at you that, like a 90 mph curveball spinning toward your face, threatens to knock you flat?

This is a challenge that I as an executive coach have advised many senior executives – as well as rising ones – to handle without looking like a minor leaguer bailing out of the batter’s box. Typically such questions come from a journalist, or maybe in a town hall situation from an aggrieved employee.
