Entrepreneur publishing has been a great parter to work with and their publishing criteria is one of the more strict I've worked with. This is important because it ensures relevance and quality for readers. I received a copy of the book a week or so ago and all the articles they chose are very applicable, timely, and well written. I applaud the publishers work.
Entrepreneur chose to publish the article titled, "4 Steps to Build Strategically Critical Leadership-Development Programs".
You can find the article here: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/290487
You can get the book from Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Entrepreneur-Voices-Effective-Leadership-Staff/dp/1599186179/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517432960&sr=8-1&keywords=entrepreneur+voices+of+effective+leadership

It has been very long since I've done any sort of update. BUT, I have a very good excuse…
We brought our Isabelle home mid August. She's a wonderful German Shepard (GSD) puppy. Like all GSDs, she is a ton of work (but SOOOOO worth it). I've owned two GSDs before so I knew what I was getting into. BUT, I totally underestimated how absolutely crazy it would be to keep everything in balance. Thus, I haven't been doing much writing. This is the reason I haven't done any posts lately. Sorry about that. Once I get ahead of the curve a little, I'll start publishing once again.
In the meantime, say hello to Isabelle "Izzy". This is about a week after we brought her home. She is 7mo old now and weighs over 50lbs (wow!!!)
I'm sitting here, at a little desk with my little 12" Macbook Pro (2015) and a little desk lamp. On the desk is my phone, my wallet, glasses and a single business card someone gave me at a conference I'm attending. The desk is about 3' wide. This is it. For some reason, I feel empowered, thoughtful, and calm. Let's compare this to my desk back at the office….
As a business leader, I have stayed awake many nights trying to figure out how to get my 100s of employees dancing to the same beat. It's exceptionally hard. More difficult than most people really understand. In my early days as a manager, I failed at it. I'm the first to admit this. Sheer momentum got the best of me. I was also quite a bit younger and with age comes scars and wisdom. This is a quick post that talks about the importance of effective employee development to help ensure everyone is dancing to a similar beat.Read More…
