Can You See Me Now? Virtual Dr. Visits Comfort During COVID19

A random Tuesday, a pandemic and a possible broken nose led my friend, let’s call her Sally, to her first introduction to how a virtual Dr. visit works. We couldn’t stop laughing as Sally gave a full rendition of her appointment. 

Dr. X- “Can you see me?”

Sally: “I can see your ceiling, can you pull your camera down?”

Dr. - “Can you see me now?”

Sally - “Now I can see the top of your head.”

“I don’t understand, has he never used the camera on his phone? Really?” She said as we were all laughing.

Dr. X - “I’m going to show you your broken bone by holding my phone up to my computer screen. Can you see that?”

Patient - “I can only see half. Hold still, I’ll take a photo and then you can move to the other side of your screen.” 

We can either imagine or have experienced this exact situation. The bottom line is that there are challenges on both sides with virtual...

Boundary Spanning – The Critical Leadership Tool

What do you know about the term “Boundary Spanning”?  Is this the new buzzword or leadership flavor of the month? Let’s look at what the term actually means and then I believe you will see my fascination and agree that it is here to stay!

“Interdependence” is the wave for the 21st century. That is what Boundary Spanning is about and why it is definitely a skill that expands from leadership to individual members.  It is the tool and method to build global interdependencies, which is the mutual dependence between things and can define complex systems! In this context it is used as a complex network of relationships.

Most definitions state that Boundary Spanning is “the efforts by an organization to establish connections both within and outside the organization”.   It can also mean establishing and building “bridges” between different levels of employees, like executives and managers, or even between a...

Executive Edge. What Is It Exactly?

We ask thousands of people a year and get a variety of answers— what sets you apart? Is it your presence, the way you carry yourself? What gives you the edge over someone else? When we ask people to describe exactly what Executive Edge is and how you obtain it, most people do not know how you get it and how you really describe what it is. Make sure to go take our online assessment to find out your Executive Edge.

What To Do When Everyone At Work Is Out For Themselves

Featured Article in Fast Company:

BY KIM ZOLLER AND KERRY PRESTON

When a group of ambitious workers come together, there are bound to be some ulterior motives and hidden agendas. Here’s how to deal.

If other people are affecting how we manage ourselves to the point where it is affecting our executive edge–that special quality few people possess but many companies seek–then we’d better learn to manage behaviors that are hard to deal with in our workplace.

It would be wonderful if everyone were nice to each other and had each other’s best interest at heart. But the reality is, many people are out for themselves. Sometimes it is a personality issue, and sometimes it is the way the corporate structure is set up.

What do we do with all this? It is a big issue in many companies today. But if your goal is to have executive edge and lead and succeed, you have to see the big picture and realize that a leader is only a leader when there are...

Dealing With Personality Stallers — Ours And Others

If other people are affecting how we manage ourselves to the point where it is affecting our Executive Edge, then we’d better learn to manage behaviors that are hard to deal with in our workplace.

It would be wonderful if everyone were nice to each other and had each other’s best interest at heart. But the reality is, many people are out for themselves. Sometimes it is a personality issue, and sometimes it is the way the corporate structure is set up.

What do we do with all this? It is a big issue in many companies today. But if your goal is to have Executive Edge and lead and succeed, you have to see the big picture and realize that a leader is only a leader when there are followers.

You have to be above all the petty behaviors. Although difficult, it is critical for your future to learn how to deal with these kinds ofbehaviors. All these behaviors come from ego. While some ego is important, having an inflated ego can hurt you.

If you do not have humility, as a leader...

Your Next Big Idea

Organizations do not innovate, people do. Organizations that produce yearly innovations are not hiring differently, they are managing differently.

1.  Communicating Ideation

Communication is the basic building block of innovation. Properly sharing your ideas with colleagues will spark discussion, exchange thoughts, and provide a new perspective. This can lead to improved results. To further improve communication dynamics; encourage team members to work in small teams and open cube arrangements. Rather than working in individual spaces, open office plans can build indirect communication skills among colleagues.

2.   Building a Team

Select or encourage people who understand your vision and align with your culture. Teams that share common values help the organization run smoothly. Matching personalities and generational ideals help the mechanics of a functioning organization. When team members are able to connect on a personal level, they are more likely to connect on a...
