The 360-degree Evaluation That Changed My Leadership

He impacted my life and leadership more than any other person. I can still remember the first day that I met him. He exuded confidence, and when our eyes locked I could see a twinkle in his eye. It was if he knew about a hidden gift, and was delighted with the thought of revealing it to those ready to receive it.

Bobby Albert discusses the 360-degree evaluation that changed his leadership and the importance of listening to employees to making great business decisions! 

Our Multi-Generational Workforce

 

The Bobby Albert Research and Insight team explores the three main generational groups in the U.S. workforce.

Do you know and understand the three main generational groups in the United States workforce?  Here’s an overview for quick reference:

Baby Boomers

Born: 1946-1964

A New Way to Lead

It was the Fall of 1989 when I had an “aha” moment about my leadership style.  My good friend and mentor, Jim Lundy, had completed a 360-degree evaluation of me, and the news was not what I expected.  In fact, when I first heard the results, it made me mad!  That was until I finally came to my senses and accepted the horrible truth–

Three Bold Predictions for 2017

I try to stay out of the prediction business. It’s a prescription for inevitable failure. Think about the weatherman. He’s right about half the time only because he’s wrong the other half!  Peter Drucker expressed it this way, “Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window.” That said, I’ve got three bold predictions for 2017…

What Are Your Dreams for 2017?

Recently, a friend and I were talking about setting goals for the new year. One of my questions to him was, “What do you dream to accomplish in 2017?”  He replied, “That’s a good question”, then paused for a while and eventually said “I can’t answer your question, because I don’t know what I would dream to accomplish this year.  I really have not thought about it!”

Lone Ranger Decision-Making

For years I was “Mr. Idea Man” in our company. But that was my job, wasn’t it? As the leader of the company, I thought it was my duty to generate the ideas and map out how to implement them. Eventually, I learned that there was a better way to lead my team. I discovered a method for increasing innovation and managing change at the same time.
