We value providing reasonable, realistic solutions to companies based on their size and industry. We prefer to keep it as simple as possible, while protecting your company and employees.

Yesterday you were Joe or Jane – today you’re the boss!

This is about the perceptions of the other people who interact with you, and about their assumptions regarding leadership and leaders. Whether you asked for it or not, you’re now in charge and you need to know that your words and actions have more impact than they had yesterday – because you’re now in charge

When leading, don’t start with “don’t”

When you want a certain behavior, specify that behavior and the correct way to execute it. There might be 10 ways to perform the task you need the person to do.

Give that person one of the three successful paths, or share all three options and allow him or her to select the one of the three that fits the best given their skills and experience.

Protecting your employees from disaster

The disaster planning process of an inland business that is rarely touched by earthquakes, hurricanes or brush fires is different from a business in an area that is flood or tornado prone. Take this opportunity to consider what emergencies are likely to arise in your business, and get your plans in place to keep your employees safe, and your business sustainable.
