I was recently interviewed by CNN about how leaders can use visualization to improve their performance.
It's something I use with clients all the time.
The CNN piece should be published soon. In the meantime, I've posted below my original Huffington Post article that inspired the interview.
This one's for #throwbackthursday.
Failure to execute strategy is one of the main reasons businesses fail. We know what we need to do but often fail to put it into action. Strategy is important but delivering results matters more. After all, customers purchase our products, not our planning. We have to hit the mark on execution or our company suffers.
The verdict is in. Americans are bored with their jobs.
Seventy percent of employees report being not engaged or actively disengaged from their work and it's costing U.S. companies $550 billion each year in lost productivity.
That's a lot of people. That's a lot of money.
External incentives, such as flextime or financial bonuses aren't reversing the trend. Clearly, we need a new approach to employee engagement. One that addresses the cause rather than the symptoms of disengagement.
