As we begin the countdown to Leadercast 2015, we get an inside look at a typical office meeting.

You need to develop a Delegation Mindset!
Yes, it’s sad but true.
If you’re a leader and you don’t develop a delegation mindset, you’ll never get enough done to extend your influence or grow in your organization.
Most importantly, you’ll be unable to accomplish the things that only YOU can do.
Do you really have a chance if you don’t delegate?
When you look over your shoulder, you probably see the flood waters rising behind … and somewhere deep in your subconscious, you’re reminded that you need help.
It’s dawning on you that as you seek and take on more responsibility, you’ll only have more to do … not less … and you’re going to drown if you can’t get some help.
Then, you start to notice there is a lot of potential help nearby … others are tapping into that talent pool … but you aren’t taking advantage of those resources.
What about only what YOU can do?
You also know that if you don’t make time for the things that only you can do, they won’t get done … by anyone … ever. Continue reading to get the Delegation Principles checklist
What does it take to get on the Medal Stand and out of the Grandstands?
She’s won 17 Olympic medals. 12 of them are gold.
She holds 13 world records.
She’s been Sports Woman of the Year twice.
She’s obviously a remarkable swimmer.
She did all of it after having the lower part of both legs amputated when she was 18 months old.
Jessica Long’s drive, devotion and discipline are unquestioned. Her determination is boundless. (NBC produced an in-depth look at her life you can find here.)
Is all of that enough? If you had each of those characteristics in immeasurable quantity, would it be enough to make you an Olympian?
Is drive, devotion and discipline enough?

Do NOT Stop Asking These 10 Questions
Several years ago, I wrote about whether we needed another checklist of the 10 Stupid Things I can’t stop doing ..or the Top 5 things I need to do before I brush my teeth (really, nothing, do that first … please).
I ran across it recently and re-read the article by Marc Kramer entitled, The 10 Questions You Should Never Stop Asking.
What about … WHAT ONLY YOU CAN DO?

Can we develop an incentive plan to drive superior performance?
You can be pretty sure that’s the question someone was trying to address when your key incentive program was created.
At the time, the answer may have been yes.
The chances are that question has never been asked again.
If we believe in the power of incentives … and we want to stimulate superior performance … why do we rarely take time to examine the programs already in place to see if those programs are accomplishing their intended objective?
Incentive Plans are rarely updated
When you look under the hood of your own incentive programs, you’re likely to find that incentive plans already in place aren’t working too well.
What started as a well-intended and robust incentive plan has now become a routine bonus program that participants expect to receive as a regular part of their income.
The plan doesn’t do anything to stimulate superior performance. Keep Reading for the Video & Slides
I will be enjoying a family vacation for the next few weeks. While I’m gone, I want to share with you some of the Gold Feature articles I have written. Each of them supports my mission to serve you, which is to provide Practical Strategies to Help Leaders Get Real Results. Not a lot of jabber, theories or dreams … but proven solutions you can use to become a more effective leader and build a successful business.
“Who’s walking on my field?”
You’re lugging 40 pounds on your back in 100 degree temperature. Your head’s tucked inside a small capsule like a two-pound sausage in a one-pound casing and sweat’s pouring down your brow.
There’s no chance the sun will disappear … it’s only 10 a.m. … and while there’s water everywhere, your reach for the next bottle seems to exceed your grasp.
Oh, yeah, and the boss expects you to be running – not walking – on his field.
Join in a football game with Nick Saban, the legendary football coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. You’ll see how he scores a touchdown every time.

In Can Radically Different Cultures Produce Equally Great Results?, I posed the question: If measured by financial performance, can dramatically different organizations be equally successful?
In this short series about culture development, we’ll take a look at how sound business principles and cultural patterns often collide within an organization’s walls.
How can opposing cultures both succeed?
In many ways, it doesn’t seem fair that both charitable and churlish cultures can thrive.
It’s easy to embrace the benevolent culture created by Sid Rich (we’ll call it Company South, “S” for Sid) as profiled in the first article in this series.
His company deserves to be successful.
Wouldn’t it be great if that was the company you worked for? (more…)
