Fiscal Cliff or Leadership Coma?
“Fiscal cliff” is the popular shorthand term used to describe the predicament that the U.S. government will face at the end of 2012. U.S. lawmakers have a choice to allow current policy go into effect at the beginning of 2013.  This features a number of tax increases and spending cuts that are expected to weigh heavily on growth and possibly drive the economy back into a recession.  Or, they can cancel some or all of the scheduled tax increases and spending cuts, which would add to the deficit and increase the odds that the United States could face a crisis similar to that which is occurring in Europe. Many organizations face the same fiscal cliff, when it comes to leadership development over the next few years.

My Time to Lead Series (New)

Making the transition to leader is not easy and it is certainly not natural.  Yet most companies invest little to nothing preparing new leaders for their new role.  This often results in poor morale and higher turnover since many people just replicate what they have seen in the past.  This leadership "gap" is prevalent in most companies.  Our new and updated leadership series prepares leaders for this new role.  Our 3-day leadership series (non-consecutive days) includes an 86 page work book and a copy of “Listen Up Leader”.   We cover leadership essentials such as:


  • Making the leap from co-worker to supervisor
  • Learn the difference between communication and effective communication
  • Differentiate between accountability and blame
  • Set goals to communicate accountability as a supervisor
  • Recognize the essential nature of trust
  • Create an environment that promotes trust in the workplace
  • And much more…
