Sideline Leadership (The FRONT#24)

by Mike Phillips

    Leaders are always watched. Even when they are not on the field! I love football as an analogy for business. ANy sports really share so many similarities in leadership and the business world. Leadership is an all the time thing. Many newer managers want to grandstand and show what they can accomplish while they are […]

      In training, you should TELL  and SHOW your staff to get the best out of them! Training and teaching are all about being in the front!

            Follow Up And Follow Through In Sales (The FRONT #19)

            by Mike Phillips

              Follow through and follow up (with customers) seems to be, to many people, a lost art. I used to think that lack of follow up, or a follow up “problem” was exclusive to salespeople, in the traditional sense.

The coach is not on the field with the players, so let the leaders lead in the moment. And, vice-versa, as a top performer, you know what to do… […]

It’s inevitable, no matter how much you would like everything in harmony. Drama happens. People may talk behind others backs (gossip), judge […]
