Stop trying to manage people

“I hate managing people” was my client’s opening comment, before we had greeted one another in our usual friendly manner. “Great. Time to stop trying.” was my reply. My client gave me an out of character blank look. “People cannot be managed.” I said. Another blank look.

I meet so many people negatively stressed by their perceived inability to solve so called people problems. After many years of observing and interacting with people I am led to the following…

CSR Engagement with FSD - Making CSR Sustainable through Non-Profit Partners

Corporate Social Responsibility in the past has been focused on humanizing companies and erasing negative corporate actions by highlighting positive changes driven by in-cash donations, employee volunteering, and cause sponsorship. This type of CSR is limited by company time-lines and manpower, current popular sustainability topics in the media, and the fiscal year. Most corporate citizenship strategies enter into a cause with no or little prior knowledge of the foundations of the problem,…

New Concepts in Sustainable Spend Management

“In addition to attracting and retaining talented category managers to identify new savings areas, leading Procurement organizations also unpack complex spend categories into more manageable subcategories. Keep in mind that the highest return opportunities are not necessarily the projects with the highest amount of spend or those that are easiest to implement.”  –CEB Views

We choose our thoughts and our emotions

I read a great insight in the Virgin Airlines Voyeur magazine on a flight yesterday from performance psychologist Dr. Phil Jauncey:

Mental toughness isn’t the ability to get your mind right before an event, it’s being able to execute when your mind is saying you can’t.”
