Lack of Respect: A Hidden Culprit Behind Gun Control Inaction
21 Feb, 2018. 0 Comments. Change, Engagement, Managing Conflict. Posted By: Steve Saars
America experiences a mass shooting -- defined as 4+ victims killed, including the shooter -- on an average of one per day.

Advocating for Respect: Overcoming Skeptics Who Claim We’re Oversensitive and Too Politically Correct
19 Jan, 2018. 0 Comments. Leadership Presence, Respectful Leadership. Posted By: Steve Saars
Hearing about Donald Trump’s recent meeting in which he made disrespectful comments about immigrants and other countries reminded me of an incident I witnessed over 20 years ago, while facilitating a corporate leadership strategy session. I watched – paralyzed – as the CEO of a global company literally screamed obscenities and personal abuse at his direct reports for failing to meet their business goals.

One of the greatest challenges for many new managers lies in a self-transformation from task master to leader. This transition involves the ability to effectively delegate responsibilities to other team members and empower them to succeed. Harvard Business Review Contributor Jesse Sostrin discusses this common management dilemma and offers strategies to help streamline your workflow, build employee competency, and boost your leadership impact. While your coworkers may admire your willingness to roll up your sleeves and get the job done, you’ll inevitably overextend yourself and alienate team members from valuable work experience when holding onto tasks that should be delegated.…
