Why We’re Going To Haiti

I’m dirty. I’m sweaty I stink and I’m probably a little hungry. Most of all, I’m tired, so very tired. My hands and feet are calloused while my back aches. I want nothing more than to shower and rest. Just when I feel like I’m done, a child pulls me into a game of soccer and I realize that I’ve only just begun. This is...

What Does A CEO Do?

From a very young age, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. As the firstborn child of an entrepreneur, it was clear that my family wanted me to be heavily involved with the business my father started 30 years ago. So it’s fitting that growing up, I knew I wanted to be a CEO. I attended a prestigious business school here...

The Death Of HR

I have a problem that I’d like to share with you. If you’ve followed my blog, you know that I truly believe that people and culture are your only differentiators and your biggest competitive advantage.

Dump Your Policies: Part Two

Why You’re Losing

I was pumped for my vacation. Between running a company, mentoring my team and being available for my family and community, there’s not a lot of time left over. I’m fortunate to be able to do what I love but that doesn’t mean I don’t look forward to some relaxation. After attending Leadercast Live in Atlanta, I met up with my lovely wife in Florida...

Beyond You Leadership

I love being a leader. It’s something I’ve worked very hard to achieve and here’s my secret: I work even harder to maintain my position as a company’s leader. Anyone who knows me or who regularly follows this blog, knows that I passionately pursue opportunities to stretch my boundaries and become a better leader.

“A” Is For Awesome, “B” Is For Better Keep Looking

Do you remember that time when you met someone who simultaneously inspired and challenged you? That person who made you a little uncomfortable because they took you outside of your comfort zone; the one whose expertise and guidance helped you to achieve a goal you previously thought was unattainable. They were an “A” player and the kind of person you should be looking to surround...
