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.
Every organization must work hard to realize set goals and turn a profit. Some organizations make it look easy while most struggle and many just cease to exist.

HOW TO CONTROL THE TURNOVER RATE
I recently read an article about the indirect costs of a high turnover rate. I understand the costs involved with the hiring, training, and insuring processes. I also realize the costs involved with those processes are honestly intended to add value and usually do. A high turnover rate is almost always due to a lack of a quality effort at managerial levels. Arrogance, incompetence and a poor hiring/firing technique is usually why good employees leave and you find your organiz
Why some organizations succeed and others don't.
Why does one organization succeed while other's just like it with the same opportunity and capital fail? It's my belief that the unsuccessful ones "put the cart before the horse." I'm sure the unsuccessful organizations tried all the latest lean manufacturing, motivational, sales, and marketing techniques and still found them to be ineffective.

THE FACTS ABOUT OUR TEAMS

The right person is a servant leader, one who understands that he is only really in charge of what his team allows
