Alignment—the “Piece Missing” from Organizational Success

Posted on 02/04/2020 by Delta Associates

The process of alignment in most organizations today is episodic and often crisis-driven, rather than an organizational strategy. Organizations must embrace a system of aligning and coaching their top talent as a business strategy.

Skin in the Game – What’s in it for Me in the Workplace

Posted on 01/21/2020 by Jack Speer

Who’s skin is in your game–really? In any event of life we are spectators, watching the outcome with little to lose, or we have a great deal personally on the line–we have skin in the game.

Creating False Expectations

Posted on 01/14/2020 by Jack Speer

Has anyone ever created a great expectation for you–then totally blown up your hope? Was this a person who had the resources to do something life-changing for you?  Did they systematically lead you to believe they’d do what they promised–but never came through?   Then they gave no explanation whatsoever for why–nor expressed any regret. This happened to Benjamin Franklin, 18th century American Founding Father, inventor, and diplomat.  Franklin as a young man formed a friendship with the Governor William Keith, governor of Pennsylvania, who took[…]

Building Teams on Transparency

Posted on 12/17/2019 by Jack Speer

Getting teams right is critical to organizational success.  Nothing is more important.  I recently sat down to talk with Matty Wishnow, founder of Clearhead, headquartered in Austin, Texas to talk about Matty’s model of team success.  Clearhead began with less than a million dollars in annual revenues and sold to Accenture, a large International consulting firm. Matty has developed an effective team model for 21st Century organizations. Getting teams right is not only not easy, getting teams wrong has sunk many organizations with large burdensome employee headcounts and ambiguous[…]

WHO GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN?

Posted on 12/10/2019 by Jack Speer

How do you create a workplace where people don’t get under your skin? It’s really interesting to research the reasons people creep each other out at work.  Complaints generally range from messy desks, condescending manners, goody two shoes suck ups, employees who don’t care, and many more.  The ways we get under each others’ skins are endless. Sometimes we just can’t deal with a person we work with because they’re untruthful, deceptive, and conniving to their very cores.  I have only dealt with a handful[…]

A Band Together -Who Do You Want on Your Team?

Posted on 11/19/2019 by Jack Speer

Who do you want on your team?  There is no more fundamental question. That’s the question the NFL, the military, business, and every group asks that wants to get something done.   This question–who do you want on your team–tops business fundamentals like sales and revenue.   With the right team, every problem can be solved except those like hurricanes and tornados.  Even well -funded organizations with everything going for them fail because of dysfunctional teams. Putting together a great team with effective team members often seems[…]

Escaping the World of the Chronically Unemployed

Posted on 11/12/2019 by Jack Speer

Few people navigate the world of employment today without at some point finding themselves jobless. Companies fold, they’re acquired, reorged, and downsized. Sometimes you find yourself over your head in a project or on the wrong side of politics–bottom line is you’re out. People get fired—it’s what happens.

A Gamechanger for Teams: The New 360-Degree Online Assessment

Posted on 11/19/2014 by Jack Speer

How do you launch a team so that it has the best shot at success? Two components of a successful team are an effective kickoff strategy and a 360-degree team assessment. Sometimes when we put teams together within an organization, hopes are high and so are the stakes. The organization has a cash investment and an expectation the team’s work will generate revenues. How do we increase the chances that this team will achieve its goals? Let’s say that you have a team of 15 people and a project manager that reports[…]
