You Need the Line in the Sand… Sometimes.

by Mike Phillips

The line in the sand? It’s true. There is still a time and place for authoritarian leadership. We are in an age of democratic and collaborative, feel-good leadership. During this time, right now, in history, many leaders, speakers, and trainers are instructing company management and executive leadership that everyone needs to feel included and that all […]

Manager and Leader Are Not Synonymous.

by Mike Phillips

Managing versus Leading. Management and leadership are often spoken of hand-in-hand. These two words are often used interchangeably. They are not the same thing.

Mediocrity Has No Place In Business

by Mike Phillips

There is not a spot for “average” in the current work climate. There just isn’t. In my opinion, in business, especially now, more than ever before in history. You should not be accepting of mediocre (average) performance. There is too much at stake. There is too much social connection and transparency for you to continue […]
