Language is only the most obvious part of the global communication gap. Different cultures also have distinct approaches to communication during meetings, as described by British linguist Richard D. Lewis, whose best-selling book, “When Cultures Collide,” charts these as well as leadership styles and cultural identities.
Kat Cole started helping out early. Raised by a single mother of three who held three jobs to support the family, Cole entered the workforce as soon as it was legal. At 15, she started selling clothes at a mall. At 17, she added a second job at a restaurant—first as a hostess and then as a waitress.
We rarely think about whether presentations are the best way to express our ideas; we just blindly create and deliver them. By some estimates, 350 presentations, on average, are delivered every second of every day.
A growth in confidence in a person who is experiencing success is a very normal human response. Yet there are significant differences in the ways individuals portray confidence that can have a dramatic and lasting effect on their future opportunities — and some folks simply overdo it.
I’ve made the point before that attaining the ability to scale–reaching what I call Predictable Success–depends on the organization’s leaders developing one skill above all others: the capacity to make, consistently and repeatedly, high-quality team-based decisions.
It’s the great challenge of leadership: how to inspire employees to bring their best selves to work and deliver consistent, stellar performance. It is accepted wisdom that happy employees are better performers. While there is much truth to this, it can lead to some common leadership mistakes.
When employees slow down in their work, your business operations will also slow down as well.

There is one big advantage Twitter has over Facebook. It’s not filtered.

That is why using lists and #hashtags are vital to glean the gems from the garbage on Twitter.
Quality leadership or a lack thereof is easy to spot if you know what to look for. The problem is most people don’t know what to look for in a leader, and according to a recent study by Chief Executive magazinemany CEOs don’t seem to know what to look for either.
If you have, this is the infographic for you. While it doesn’t shed light on all of the qualities you need to be a CEO — and might be a better reflection of the CEOs who came up through the ranks in the past couple of decades, rather than the CEOs to come — you might see some qualities you and current CEOs share.
This time every year, millions of people across the globe commit themselves to the pursuit of virtuous goals, such as losing weight, being a more understanding boss or partner, obtaining a better education, eating more healthfully, and saving money. But when are such reflection exercises effective? And will your resolutions stick and turn into real changes in your behavior?…
When a new work group forms, people often make snap judgments about who is qualified to lead. The attitude with which you enter a new group — something completely within your control — can help boost your chances of leading it.…
People often think of corporate culture as “soft” because it involves squishy things like values and expectations. That’s true as far as it goes—but winning cultures have a hard, metrics-driven element as well. A culture that feels upbeat and positive but doesn’t contribute to profitable growth or beating the competition is destined for the dustbin.…
