My mind was somewhere else.  I was thinking about my upcoming meeting, going through a number of the issues that needed to be addressed; then it happened… Sure, I was paying attention to the traffic around me.  I’m a good driver.  I’ve never had an at-fault accident.  However, I have one little weakness – I tend to speed.  It’s not …

A Piece of the Picture

I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. It was massive. It was complex. It was incredibly detailed. It was unlike anything I had ever seen in my life.

Leadership Dementia

My father is almost 90 years old.  He suffers from dementia. He has been slowly declining into reduced ability for a few years now.  Initially it began with a simple loss of memory.  He could communicate well, but would forget the odd detail and need to be reminded.  He then began to forget more and more details.  He would ask …

The Accidental Leader

0

There is common mindset I have discovered amongst many small business owners.  I call it the “Accidental Leader Syndrome”.  It typically occurs when the owner started the business himself, has grown it to a good size, and now finds himself in a leadership role, but he doesn’t see himself as a leader.
