Change Management

I don’t often tell you that a particular episode of Leadership Shop is a must listen but this one may very well be. James is talking about change management and comes quickly to the nub of the matter. Change is not optional. The only question is whether or not you are going to play the change game or the game is going to play you, or merely leave you behind.

Fail To Win? – Audio TidBits Podcast

A quick look at the success literature may give you the impression that making mistakes is the surest path to success. James has an alternative perspective for you in this episode of the Leadership Shop podcast. It is definitely worth a listen and moreover, it is worth well considering the advice James includes. Make mistakes if you cannot avoid them, but never confuse doing it wrong with getting it right, the first time, on time, every time. As someone famous likely said, losing is never as good as winning.

I Did Does Not Necessarily Mean You Can – Audio TidBits Podcast

James is back with an important success tip. You know what you did, your experience. Others also know about that or can fairly quickly learn. You also have a good notion about “can,” what you can do. For that, the path to knowing for others is not quite so transparent. James finishes with a short quiz that helps you get a handle on the “can” side of the did/can coin.

Success Is But A Failure Away – Audio TidBits Podcast

James has a definite winner for us in this episode of Leadership Shop. He points out that always being successful is not very likely for any of us. At the same time, failure is not something we will find particularly terrific, although it is not altogether avoidable. The key is in finding a place where we can deal with both, always focusing on sticking to the path to success. Sure, it’s not simple and even harder to figure out. Listen to the podcast. James does a much better job than I do with explaining the convergence of failure and success.

Do You Stack Up?

James brings you an old story well worth remembering. Are you moving up the org chart or perhaps you only would like to move up the chart. You may think you will move based on being qualified for the next rung up. Silly you. That’s not the way it works. Tune in and James will fill you in on how it really works.

Inspiration Does Not A Leader Make

Are there many, if any leaders in your life? In fact, do you know of a leader, whether in your life or not? Since we tend to think that whatever famous people say is true, we might all do well to listen to what James has to share with us about the pronouncement of one famous person about leaders and leadership. Sometimes, being famous does not necessarily make one profound.
