  How do leaders set and maintain high standards in their organizations? Successful leaders set high standards for performance and have accountability in place. The key to setting the bar at the right level is a high enough target for team members to successfully reach.  Then set the bar higher! Managers with low or no set standards most likely result in teams with low morale and low success rates.  Allowing employees to dictate policies such as time off and work pace levels usually...

  As a leader, it is natural to move discussions forward and bring energy to the room.  The challenge is to let someone else take the lead. I have enjoyed observing our team and letting them take the lead.  Simply observing and not partaking in the discussion can be easy at times and yet very challenging at other times. Some meetings with clients result in the lead bouncing from me to the corp rep.  Most clients who have dealt with me, will look...

  Why do certain Teams move forward  while other Teams stay stagnant?  I just cringe when I hear "No, that won't work because we always do it this way" as the answer when someone suggests doing something different. Why are so many resistant to change?  Why do so many want to keep doing the same thing without even considering how to do it better? Thankfully we are in an industry where we have "hourly" changes in technology - that's about how fast business moves...

  Does work get in the way of your life or has work become your way of life?  How are you balancing all the work-related tasks you need to complete each and every day, while maintaining a good personal life? Once upon a time we had three parts of our day which were split equally: 8 hours of work, 8 hours of leisure time and 8 hours of sleep.  Yes looking back this seems like a fairy tale now!  The current balance...

The AlphaKORians are dedicated.   They are committed in relentlessly providing excellent service consistently.  They have integrity.  We cannot thank them enough! To achieve this success, there is a Team who must take responsibility by executing each and every day.  In our case, it is actually 24 hours a day, every day of the week and every Holiday.   No exceptions! The AlphaKORians demonstrate...

  Do you and your team have a sense of urgency?  Or do you and your team move along at a slow, complacent pace? Successful teams are associated with members who possess a sense of urgency, not panic, in how they perform all their responsibilities.  A sense of urgency can be seen as setting proper priorities especially when interfacing with customers. Imagine being complacent when a customer contacts you for an inquiry or a support issue. What message are you really sending out? Now...

  It is easy to keep going each and every day without recognizing those around us that are making a difference.  How many times do we actually appreciate what others do for us and acknowledge it? Sometimes we take our relationships for granted. It is important to let them know we do care and we do know what a difference they make.  Yes we feel they should know how we care.  Tell them! Make it part of your daily routine to thank those...

  How many times do we ask ourselves if we are doing the right thing when making so many decisions every day?   How many of them are the right decisions? How many of them are really tough decisions? When we are faced with these questions, some of us react immediately, some of us take a little time and some of us procrastinate.  Effective leaders will do a bit of each depending on the challenge faced and the sense of urgency. Reviewing all the...

  Ever notice most people who are motivated have lots of energy, are focused and accomplish great things on a consistent basis. They move with a sense of purpose and with determination they are on a mission. You can feel their energy when they walk into the room. People gravitate towards them and engage in discussions or simply listen to what they are saying. Why are these people motivated? One of my life long motivators has been the fear of failure. Yes we...

  This week I'd like to share my favourite ways of connecting people.   Thanks to so many supporters and for labelling me "The Connector".  This blog is dedicated to you! Connecting in person.   This is the best way to connect two people I know to each other.   You can share a bit about each person and add why it would be good for them to stay in touch.  This is called triad relationship building.  Introduce two people, start the conversation and walk...
