But in the modern world, errors make people feel vulnerable, exposed, and at times, ignorant or stupid. We may think that we will be judged for our blunder, and while some people might do so, those are usually the ones that you can ignore.read more ❯

It’s easy to think that as a leader or business owner, you need to continually project confidence. But that’s disingenuous because no one feels confident 100% of the time. And despite your best intentions (and that of a great many self-help gurus), you can’t believe your way into confidence! But, you can work on conditioning confidence with practice and vulnerability.   Conditioning Confidence Many self-help gurus’ claims that affirmations and just thinking positively is enough to build confidence. While it's tempting to believe the mere act of constantly saying that “you can do it" will change your beliefs. And while it may work in the short-term and for smaller tasks and challenges, it takes more than a few words to truly... read more ❯

It is what the customers get out of it" – Peter Drucker. Sometimes companies have new policies they wish to enforce, more often than not, they go about it the wrong way.  The wrong process can lead to the dissatisfaction of the customers and employees alike, which, in turn, affects the company in a negative way. Such effects can include losing employees, sales, and even long-time customers. These consequences most often occur when employers make policies which they refuse to amend or change after repeated complaints and pleas from all parties concerned. As an employer, you mustn't hide behind your policies, especially when they get in the way of exceptional customer service. Whatever policies or procedures you design, they must be able to satisfy everyone, including... read more ❯

These aspiring entrepreneurs dream of traveling around the world, having free time to hang out with their friends, and taking long breaks. All of these things are lovely, but the major issue is that they only come when you have put things in order and are close to a clear operational structure. The reality of being a business owner is that sacrifice becomes your middle name. At the start of a business, you tend to make the most sacrifice, giving up that precious time you'd otherwise spend on vacation or with family and friends. In the beginning, you don't get much free time, as your schedule can... read more ❯

Things get in the way, indecision plagues our minds, and self-doubt and fear of the unknown reach in and strangle our motivation. The amazing thing about the entire situation is that we’re actually only ever six steps away from achieving our goals. That’s right; just six steps away. Unfortunately, none of us are gifted with foresight, leaving the road ahead full of uncertainty and doubt. Steve Jobs, the founder of a little company called Apple, put it best during his 2005 commencement speech at Harvard University: “Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that... read more ❯

Telling the truth and acting accordingly is a good virtue and a measure of ethics and moral honour. Honesty is one of the best ways for an organization to achieve long-lasting success for its employees and customers. There is a huge difference between being honest and being transparent. Honesty is when you reveal what you feel needs to be known, while transparency is when others can’t see something that YOU feel they need to know but might not be appropriate or relevant. An example of someone trying to be transparent could be; I was looking at buying a new vehicle and the business manager at the dealership wanted to... read more ❯

Mastermind groups have always existed solely for the purpose of exchanging ideas and are dedicated to mutual growth and building members up. In 1925 Napoleon Hill used the term “Master Mind” in his book ‘The Law of Success’. He pointed out that being a part of a mastermind group was critical to his success. As illustrated by Napoleon, the core value of a mastermind group is the synergy of motivation, idea exchange, energy, commitment and the willingness to learn and grow together. Members in a mastermind groups raise the bar by challenging each other to set goals, improve personal skills, business skills, brainstorm ideas and support each other with utmost respect and honesty. So, whether you believe in the power of... read more ❯

Reorganizations are usually an excellent way to unlock value and stay in tune with the constant change in the business environment. Reorganization is an effective way to improve performance and keep up with the incredible pace of change in the business world.  It is often undertaken to boost innovation and ultimately financial performance. Companies often undergo reorganization to curtail inertia or routines that may progressively undermine growth. However, the truth is that most reorganizations are not entirely successful. A survey carried out by McKinsey revealed that more than 80% of reorganizations fail to deliver the value promised. Furthermore, an estimated 10% cause severe damage to the company and they could also be a miserable experience for employees. Research suggests that... read more ❯

Author Christopher Lawrence
  Julia Zarina - Understanding followership really allows people to, not fit in, in the weak kinda sense of this word, but fit in, in a sense that you feel supported, you feel like you're a part of the team. And you feel like everybody can see what you're doing and can come around and support you or give you more resources or promote you or whatever your goals are.   Christopher Lawrence - Hi internet, it's me, Christopher Lawrence and I'm here with my friend, Julia Zarina. And Julia is knowledgeable on this subject of followership.   Julia - Okay. (laughs)   Christopher - So Julia, what is followership?   Julia - So followership is all about playing that complementary role to your leader instead of trying to do either the same thing that they're trying to do or even competing with them or doing something that will harm them in any way or the teamwork or the... read more ❯
