Why Productivity Issues Fail

Dwight Mihalicz,

As a consultant I am concerned that 70% of major initiatives fail to achieve results.  McKinsey recently published research showing this is true for all major organizational projects.

What Is Leadership Philosophy and How to Develop One?

Dwight Mihalicz,

Did you ever sit down and think about what kind of leader you wanted to be? Or was your leadership a journey you embarked on, relying on instinct?

It is an important question every leader must answer at some point because it determines how well they will lead in the future.

You can get by without it for a while, and perhaps even be successful, but there’s also a good possibility you’ll completely miss your mark. So, what is the leadership philosophy and how do you develop one?

Managerial Leadership Is the Critical Link between the CEO and the Front Line

Dwight Mihalicz,

When a strategy or a major initiative within an organization fails to deliver the desired results, it’s easy to get sucked into a blame game between the departments.

The poor delegation of work, micromanaging employees and not nurturing accountability are among the factors that can contribute to the lack of success of an organization.
