We are living in a business world of downward forecasts, slipping GDP growth, shrinking middle class, declining consumer confidence and spending, erratic stock market, and…yes…financial earthquake. And yet, behaviors and mindsets are all the same. Most economists don’t forecast an improvement until 2018. What should leaders do in a time when everyone is pinched so hard? How do we shape the path forward? . . .
Happy New Year. There is something truly exciting and profound about the start of a new year. A sense of new found energy to channel emotional, creative and ethical intelligence....our sense of bigger purpose, causes and beliefs. Like it or not, recent economic changes have had strong effect on all cultures and businesses. This is a great time to ask your team, "where are the gaps in your current strategy and delivery systems in this New World Marketplace?". . .
