ROOT CAUSES OF INDIRECT COSTS
Organizations who are struggling cannot stop the excessive turnover and unnecessary workloads by doing the same things with the same people that got them where they are today. Change is necessary. More than likely, a lack of any apparent talent magnet has reduced you to hiring the bottom of the barrel so to speak. People don’t quit good companies, they quit poor managers. “You can make a B player an A player but you can never make a C player an A or B player” Jack Welch, CEO/
ROOT CAUSES OF INDIRECT COSTS
Lack of formal leadership training for all employees is the root cause of most organizations struggles.
MANAGER IN DISGUISE?
I've roughly defined a "Manager in Disguise" as someone who's in a position of authority (leadership position) which gives them the opportunity to help steer an organization and influence others but also has no apparent leadership skills, knows it and yet still refuses to step down for the greater good. I'm often asked, why would the people in leadership positions in any organization allow such incompetence to exist and/or continue? Well, the answer to that question is: The M
WHAT TYPE OF EMPLOYEE ARE YOU SENDING TO MY ORGANIZATION?
So many organizations have prerequisites that must be met prior to conducting business with potential clients or even customers in some cases. The use of a 3rd party Contractor/Supplier Qualification Organization has helped many organizations with their selection and vendor approval process. Usual requirements for conducting business are a Safety Management System, Quality Management System, above average On Time Delivery Rate and Insurance to name a few. Currently, having a

Millennial (Generation Y) Subsets – What Makes Them So Different? 01/30/2015 By John R. Grubbs, Keynote Speaker and Bestselling Author Why is this young generation so different? Are there factors in place that separate today’s youth from those in the past? The research reveals two subsets that make this generation different.

THE INADVERTENT GIFT FROM MILLENNIALS TO CORPORATE AMERICA
The gift I’m seeing is: a focus on the lack of real leadership in America. Millennials have been getting a bad rap for some time now. This deception and disinformation about millennials is mainly driven by the "Managers in Disguise" or executive members of the C team if you will, who are at the top of some organizational charts. These are the people in organizations who have obtained enough influence in the workplace to create the perception that millennials are bad for busin
20 TRAITS OF THE MANAGER IN DISGUISE YOU ALREADY KNOW
When good employees leave good organizations, studies show, the number one reason for leaving is poor management. Notice, I mentioned "good employees," because poor employees thrive in this environment. Even the most principled employee has his or her limit as to how much dysfunction they will put up with before getting off the bus. An organization's culture is driven by the amount of dysfunction the people who are in positions of authority/leadership are willing to put up wi
7 REASONS YOUR ORGANIZATION IS STRUGGLING TO REALIZE GOALS AND TURN A PROFIT.

This allows the wrong people (C Players) to get on the bus. You have hired people and told them what to do instead of hiring
MY WISH TO ALL LEADERSHIP GURUS!
To all the self-proclaimed "Leadership Gurus," and there's a lot of you, that I can tell you. My wish is that you would learn to differentiate leaders from "Managers in Disguise" as leaders. This action will further solidify your must have "Guru" status. Understand, leaders aren't the source of dysfunction and chaos, it's the managers in disguise as leaders who are in positions of authority and are lacking the will, desire and skills needed to be in the leadership position th
