Last quarter in Fort Worth, I asked attendees at the Leadership Academy to write down their biggest leadership question or dilemma. I’d like to begin to tackle that very long list and address some of the important areas that were raised.

And it certainly is the core of much confusion about the terms we throw around rather interchangeably in a company. But in fact, they truly are very different. Here are what some of the thought leaders in business have described as the differences: John Kotter – The primary difference ...

I’ve been privileged to spend two weeks with the HTG groups in ANZ (Australia and New Zealand) recently, and as usual it was a wonderful experience. I truly enjoy the people there, and the way they receive us crazy Americans with arms wide open as we share life and grow business together.
