In the January edition of the HTG WAY, I shared 10 key actions that will help make 2014 a year to remember. We'll take a look at those ten items in detail and review ways to make them a vital part of what happens this year. 1. Focus on planning. 2. Focus on financials. 3. Focus on leadership development Leadership development is one of the most important things that every leader needs to be focused on, because nothing stands still and the skills people had yesterday won’t be adequate in their leadership roles today or tomorrow. The bottom line is that we all need to grow and keep growing our skills. That doesn’t happen accidentally, or by osmosis. Leadersh...

In the January edition of the HTG WAY, I shared 10 key actions that will help make 2014 a year to remember. During this month, we'll take a look at those ten items in detail and review ways to make them a vital part of what happens this year. 1. Focus on planning. 2. Focus on financials. One of the key benefits to being part of HTG is the benchmarking of your financials that happen each quarter from Service Leadership.

During this month, we'll take a look at those ten items in detail and review ways to make them a vital part of what happens this year. 1. Focus on planning. HTG has long been pushing on the four plans that are central to our program: legacy (business and personal), life, leadership and business.

Earlier this month I was in Silicon Valley to speak at a Leadership and Technology Forum. I was on the agenda with some brilliant presenters including major venture capital firms, the inventor of the iPad, and marketing gurus. Still trying to figure out how this simple Iowa farm boy got on the agenda, but I certainly learned a lot from the information presented.

Time is one of our greatest resources. Sometimes during this season, we get so busy we feel like there isn’t time to spend doing things that we say matter to us. Our walk doesn’t match our talk. But if we’re honest, we can take a minute here or there to do things that help us stay better aligned with the things that matter the most I encourage you to find ten minutes this week, and do these things. They don’t cover you for the entire holiday but go a long way toward helping get your actions connected to your priorities, and your mindset right. 1. Take a minute…….to say a prayer of thanksgiving to God for sending His Son as the reason for this season. 2. Take a minute…….to tell your spouse ... Continue reading
