From Now To How: Social, Virtual and Cross Generational Leadership

You can criticize, condemn and complain or imagine, inspire and innovate. Your choice will determine your destiny. – Deepak Chopra The need to go from NOW to HOW is critical. Leadership starts with our ability to imagine, inspire, innovate and communicate forward. Hope lies in not simply playing to strengths, but to seizing every challenge, […] Read moreRead More»

From Boomer to Gen Y Leaders: New Emperors Need Newer Clothes

In the 1990s, we Boomers were fretting over a previous economic downturn and whether or not the Internet was a passing fad (another golden age of myopia). At that time, management thinker, Charles Handy, told a memorable story as an analogy for change in his book ‘The Age of Unreason’. A tribe of South American […] Read moreRead More»

Organizational Leadership and a Better Society

I think it’s a safe assumption, unless you’re a narcissistic sociopath, that people want a better society and want to contribute to that goal in some fashion. There is plenty of frustration and uncertainty to go around in nearly every country. Social tensions permeate every aspect of our world and it is in the best […] Read moreRead More»

Time to Embrace the Millennial Overachiever

“What comes to mind when you hear the phrase ‘Millennial overachiever’?”, I asked my friends. One friend replied, “You, Jenny. You’re an overachiever.” According to the loose stereotype, the “Millennial overachiever” is someone who tries always to be a superstar at work, wants to do more in a day than most do in a week, […] Read moreRead More»

Better talent is at work right across town, in an over-crowded garage at the house of some tiny firm’s founder. Unlike your mammoth offices, this garage is full of energy, excitement, and – here’s the worst part […] Read moreRead More»

Leading Gen Y: The Importance of Importance

As someone who is not motivated by a pay-check, I struggled when I first entered the work world. Well, not at first. First, I interned for a start-up and I thrived in that environment. It was a lean, busy, fast-paced environment where all the work being performed by each individual was absolutely necessary. Then I […] Read moreRead More»

Question Authority! (Then Listen to the Answers)

I forget where I first heard the rallying cry Question Authority! I mean, I’m a sixties person. I had it on a sweatshirt, on my college notebook (kids, this was a primitive device that required pen, paper, and handwriting) and on the stickers we pasted on phone booths. (Oh my… How do I explain ‘phone […] Read moreRead More»

Who Are My Heroes? Young Millennial Leaders

I bet you’re asking yourself if I’m nuts. I am. And I’m happily addicted to these kids too! The stereotype of Gen-Y/Millennials is one of entitlement. There certainly are those who fall into this category and I’d submit there are plenty of Baby Boomers too (hum…look at Washington DC’s problem openly discussing Medicare and Medicaid!).

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
