Are You a Lifelong Learner?

Summer is over, and after spending weeks free from the rigors of class schedules and studying, millions of kids are heading back to school.

Who are you, really?

“Who are you, really?” When I ask this question, I’m usually greeted with confusion from my clients and colleagues. “What do you mean?” is often their first response.

House of Cards Frank Underwood’s Healthy Leadership

Our offices sit directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.. Much of our view is just like the opening sequence of the Netflix original hit series, House of Cards.

Do Executives Gossip? Let’s Hope So!

If you work in or consult to an organization, you have to be deaf not to hear the whispers, the innuendo, the gossip. Gossip is a natural part of the social fabric, a pervasive part of our human society. And it does serve important social functions. Gossip in the workplace is a central, evolved part…

Leadership Games: Toss Monopoly, Tune Into Project Runway

If you are a leader working in an organization today, you are constantly riding the competition-cooperation seesaw. You must simultaneously cooperate (to get and keep clients, to get work done) and compete (for internal resources). Leaders who struggle with the competition-cooperation see-saw face constant anxiety, frustration and often career-ending jobs. What’s Monopoly Got To Do…
