One of the greatest challenges in problem-solving is resisting the temptation to accept the first answer to a problem.

  • Is Coaching Worth the Investment?

  • How to Overpower Anger
    published on August 1st, 2017 at 01:28 PM

  • Character Counts, But It Can Lead You Astray
    published on July 6th, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    Let me start by saying I place a high value on a person's character. However, unlike like many coaches and executives I have worked with, I also understand that it is not as determinative as it is often portrayed to be in the media or as much as most people think it is. Coaches often brag about a player being of high character.

  • Why Isn't an Open Mind Enough?
    published on June 4th, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    I have always thought that it was important to have an open mind- and prided myself on having one. However, according to Dr. C. Otto Scharmer and Theory U, an open mind is merely the second of the four levels of listening or attention necessary for movement from an I-focus to a we-focus. It is only when we reach the fourth and deepest level of listening that we are able to listen in a generative (or procreative) manner. At this level, our open will enables us to let go of fear and the baggage of the past, and let the new vision and intention come.

    Right from the time he declared his intention for the senior most political position in the USA, to its realization, many (or at least as the media made us believe) kept thinking he was the biggest joke of the century. Then he won and was sworn in as POTUS. The whole world is now watching and listening pensively every other hour for the most unpredictable "breaking news" from the White house.

  • Objectivity Is a Keystone for Consensus
    published on February 22nd, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    The keystone of consensus is agreement to support the decision. When the issue is sensitive or controversial, it will need to be depersonalized by relating it to something about which everyone agrees. Only then will the group be prepared to have an objective problem-solving and decision-making discussion. There are four steps to establishing objectivity, particularly when the issue to be considered is highly sensitive or controversial.
  • Three Steps to Constructive Dialogue
    published on February 22nd, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    Unresolved interpersonal conflict can be characterized as a duel (where the goal is to win) rather than a dialogue (where the goal is a give and take of information). In the conflict, the individuals hold on to very different ideas, or positions. They are aware of what the other party wants because it is typically the opposite of what s/he wants. This stalemate will not be broken until the opponents depersonalize the conflict so they can engage in dialogue to uncover the reasons, or interests, that have led to their respective positions. To achieve this understanding, the individuals will need to ask each other questions and actively listen to the answers. Once they know what each person really needs, they can collaborate to find a solution that will satisfy those needs.

  • Human Capital Development Imperatives for a Progressive South Africa
    published on January 28th, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    VIP MANAGEMENT SERVICES: South Africa is very unique in the world in the sense that most of its successful entrepreneurs, community leaders, and political elite are those who transitioned from non-profit organizations into self-employment. However, the challenge that most of them encounter is how to effect this transition. Some are forced to initially operate part-time, i.e. while they are employed or volunteering in other organizations in the country. In most cases they end up being ethically conflicted. Their careers are destroyed before they could achieve their objective of becoming fully self-employed. It is for this reason that I am advocating the introduction of VIP Management Services Development Programmes to these needy members of our society. This works like an incubator of professionals.

  • The Complete Quality Cycle
    published on January 26th, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    Present industrial models are analysed from an environmental and social perspective, including mitigating actions, sought mainly through donations. Present market rules on these aspects are revised and the question: Can a different conception by found and applied? is addressed. Can a scheme where the concept of quality, today circumscribed to materials and workmanship, can be extended to the origin of raw material, quality of work, workers, and the final destination of profit, be found and put to work? Propitiating recycled or recyclable, caring for the environment, promoting regional economies and devoting most of final sale profit for social purposes. We redefine the pillars of the market, paving the way to the future, in what we call a COMPLETE QUALITY CYCLE: A company scheme that understands quality as the care of each of its value chain links.
  • Get The Best Out Of Everyone
    published on January 24th, 2017 at 01:28 PM
    When you sell or transition you need to make sure your successor understands the value of getting the best from everyone and you need to help them. They might be a family member, a long time employee or an outside acquirer. In any case you want the new Owners to have as much success as possible. Particularly if part of your compensation is tied into the future financial achievement of the company.
