Delegation is an important activity for leaders. If managers want to be successful, they must learn how to delegate effectively. Here’s the reason why: managers will never be able to move up within the organization, take an uninterrupted vacation, participate in a special project, or enjoy a day of training if they are unable to  delegate.

For any M&A transaction, the new line-up of leadership is critical to the success of the future of the company and its culture.

There are two adages familiar to every organization is: time is money, and change is inevitable.  The interesting thing is that these truisms are connected—change doesn’t happen without an investment of time.  If an organization’s leadership is unwilling to invest the time it takes to properly address the needs, ideas, and priorities of the business to execute change, then the change is likely doomed to fail.

Recently, I received a call from a friend I hadn’t heard from in a while. Typically, when calls like this come in, I want to catch up on everything including work.

This is one of the most enjoyable interviews I have been a part of.

Last month’s Forté Foundation, #PowerUp Conference hosted in Atlanta is still on my mind. Inspiring women as incoming MBA’s were the primary audience. They were each eager for a re-start of their educational journey. Their stories and dreams will set a new standard.   Many of you are still on a high from the #SHRM 18 event.   I lived vicariously through the posts of your time in Chicago, the re-unions and the new found friends.
