  • How Blind Spots Can Crush Good Decision-Making

    Smart Decision Making Derailed by Blind Spots (View Online)

    The process of making smart decisions is similar to backing up a car. Not getting the right information or having your vision blocked cripples your ability to gauge risk and make informed decisions. In other words, you want to avoid blind spots. Judith E. Glaser an author and leadership coach says:

    "When people operate with blind spots, coupled with a strong ego,, they often refuse to adjust their course even in the face of opposition from trusted advisors, or incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. Two well-known examples of blind spots are Henry Ford and A&P:

    • Ford's success with the Model-T blinded him to the desires of his customers. That gave the fledging General Motors an opportunity to capture a winning share of the automobile market with a broader range of models and options.
    • A&P stuck with the grocery chain's private label products even as their customers defected en masse to supermarkets that

  • Love is More Than a Four Letter Word

    by Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D

    Long before it was a song, the saying was a part of our conversation - and it's especially appropriate during February, the month of love:

    Love makes the world go round. love is more than a four letter word

    With all this whirling, love can make you feel off balance and dizzy. Sometimes it's tricky to keep your personal world turning without having it spin totally out of control. Although our focus is most often on romantic love, there are many different kinds of love that help keep us grounded. We can be fully engaged and filled with pleasure loving a friend, an idea, a place, an experience. For the essence of love in your life, think about including these:

    Love who you're with . When Stephen Stills sang, If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with, he was thinking about affection and passion with a sexual partner. But you can achieve another kind of oneness with others in your life. Dear friends share emotional intimacy, commitment

  • Resilience at Work: Tips for Staying Positive

    Staying Positive at Workby Karlin Sloan

    Many people believe that we're either born tough or weak, and our circumstances dictate how we turn out. I am a firm believer that we can all learn to be resilient, and our ability to bounce back is not based on our genetics or even our life experience.

    The most powerful, eective managers and leaders are those who step up to a challenge and face it with flexibility, courage, and the ability to inspire others to follow them into the unknown. They may not know how strong they are before they are tested, but they have confidence in their ability to prevail. They are able to activate that profound human ability-the ability to bounce back from change and challenge.

    It certainly isn't always easy and at times staying positive may seem next to impossible; you're allowed to feel frustration and disappointment just don't let them govern you or your actions. Remind yourself that the tough times will undoubtedly pass, and that if you stay positive that will affect

  • Learning How to Lead

    The "Corner Office" column in the New York Times is a rich resource for leadership advice. Usually, there's a pearl of wisdom or two you can take and practice to become a better leader. This week's column featured F. Mark Gumz, the president and C.E.O. of the Olympus Corporation of the Americas, who offered this advice on passion:

    "The one characteristic that came through with all the really good teachers I've had is passion. It may be overlooked as a leadership quality, but I think it's really important. You have to be passionate about what you're trying to do, to the point that people will follow what you want to do. And I think that when we look at failure - because I think it's important to talk about failed leadership, as well - it more than likely occurred because the individual didn't have enough of a commitment that came through, that people would take the leap of faith and follow. I think fire in the belly is not something that can be overestimated. If people really
