Last week I wrote about how the people we place in our inner circle really matter.  The right group elevates us, the wrong, at the very least, restrains us.

But what happens when it’s the other way, when you have curious-minded, eager team members who are led by someone who is not?

Some of the likely byproducts:

  • High churn in key leadership positions with all of the associated costs, including losing your best talent to the competition
  • A culture that inhibits, rather than fuels, success
  • Micromanagement that creates frustration, demoralizes, and delays on-time delivery
  • Lost ideation and innovation that keeps your company from leading the pack

How would you estimate that cost?

For more on working with me directly:  I work with talented and successful senior executives who invest in the future by investing in themselves to grow with their companies.

The Magnificent Leadership® Executive Dinners Program is an ideal place to share and learn best practices with peers, leverage your network, and have access to me all in one.  (And enjoy outstanding dinners in East coast cities.)  To inquire about an invitation or nominate someone:  And in celebration of 2020, I’m offering a 20% discount on this program until January 31st, 2020.  Not a bad way to ring in the new year.  Time is ticking! 2 seats remain.
