Leaders have found themselves dealing with their team working remotely during this crisis.  We are asking ourselves what is deemed to be essential and what is non-essential?   Can everyone or almost everyone work safely and securely from home?   These are some of the tough questions we are faced with in addition to the changing world we live in today. Yesterday, we had a webinar on helping to deal with this topic.   Thanks to the WindsorEssex Regional Chamber, WEtech and WindsorEssex Economic...

Leaders are facing the harsh reality of changing plans rapidly to deal with all the challenges happening around us today.   We have uncertainties with major worldwide events such as the markets crashing and the COVID-19 Coronavirus.  Which sources and how much information do you take in to formulate your direction?

The AlphaKORians' celebrated 25 years on February 25th, 2020!  It was a day to celebrate while balancing taking care of clients.  There are always scheduled tasks, requests, service tickets and projects on the go.  As expected, there were several timely sensitive challenges to address and help our clients resolve.  Overall, it was a good day with the majority of the team making some time to participate in the activities. Balloons And Balloons The morning started with decorating the office with many balloons. ...

Some of the qualities The AlphaKORians' demonstrate every day for the last twenty-five years are:  collaboration, diverse skill set, dedication, integrity, trust and giving back. Collaboration Working together on projects, whether they are client-driven or company-driven, the Team seeks input and expertise from each other as required to complete tasks.  Words such as "I" and "Me" are not part of the AlphaKORian vocabulary.  They truly reflect the definition of collaboration, which is "We". Diverse Skill Set If everyone on the team had the same skill...

February 11th was Safe Internet Day for showing our youth how to be safe and respectful on the Internet.  What kind of an Internet role model are you?  Leaders need to demonstrate this every day and not just one day of the year. What Did You Say? If you are on your phone or tablet and claim you can multitask, then you should never ask the question "What did you say?"  The simple answer is to just put the phone down.   Focus...

Leaders are empowered to focus on being positive, providing focus and direction to achieve goals and end results.   This applies to everything they do for their team and for their company. Take Ownership Blaming others creates a negative culture.  Take ownership for the gaps.  Identify them and focus on making the necessary changes to eliminate making these same mistakes.   Leaders stand up in front of their team and accept it as their responsibility instead of blaming someone else. Focus On Where You Are...

Be Open Minded It is not easy to always be open minded, however, we must always have an open mind.  Relying on just the past and doing things the same way will not necessarily result in future success.  Just because "we always did it that way" does not mean it is the best way. Look at the constant change, the number of new requests and the fast pace of business.  Be open-minded to reacting to this change by adapting new ways of...
