Lockdown Relived – What I Have Learned from Sheltering in Place

Posted on 05/26/2020 by Delta Associates

How did you learn that the world economy was suddenly locking down at lightning speed? How did you find out about “shelter in place?” What was your reaction when you saw restaurants and stores close down and streets emptying? What were you thinking?  How did you react?

Beyond Fast: Agility – the New Plan to Play to Win

Posted on 05/19/2020 by Delta Associates

Working remotely from home in a pandemic–with technology that doesn’t always work–can be tough.  It  can make  days that glom together seem like a long, never ending slog.  It can feel like rowing a kayak down a fast moving river through white rapids–with a broken broom stick.  It takes a new agility, moving into waters where we’ve never been before. When I think of agility I think of Shaquille O’Neal.   He had an unheard of physique for a professional basketball player, totally unsuited for the game. […]

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

Posted on 04/21/2020 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[…]

Posted on 03/31/2020 by Jack Speer

We’ve been talking to a lot of people who were living in an entirely different universe just two short weeks ago. So where do we go from here? There was an office here before this.   It was our daily main street–with people, groups, food and beverage. When you walked in the door, you got a sense of the temperature of the people in the room. You absorbed the dynamics of the team environment. The change has been abrupt, jaw dropping, unbelievable–and not one of us has processed[…]

COULD A FATAL FLAW SINK YOUR CAREER?

Posted on 03/17/2020 by Jack Speer

How did you feel the first time you walked into your boss’s office for your first review? Truth be told I thought I was the one who should be evaluating my boss.  I was certainly smarter and more competent than he was. He was very fortunate he hired me.  I’d really saved this organization. Yet on the other hand, this boss evaluating me had the total ability to fire me on the spot–it had happened before.  He could give me a raise or promote me.  […]

New: Creating Team Success through Data Driven Performance

Posted on 03/03/2020 by Jack Speer

Everything of any importance in the world is measured.  It’s fundamental, isn’t it?   In your monthly bill paying cycle, you measure your utility bill, your mortgage and other expenses to be sure they add up to less than your income. But in our professional life, we don’t often know how our performance as managers or team members is measured.  Sure, we likely have some sort of evaluation….some more insightful than others.  But are we moving the dial for the organization?  Unfortunately, teams and their members[…]
