Before we can begin discussing the benefits of outsourcing especially in small businesses we must fully understand what outsourcing is and what outsourcing is not (as many people often confuse it with off-shoring, a similar but different thing).  So what is outsourcing?

For more than 20 years, I have taught the Leadership Talk to thousands of people worldwide.  And maybe the most important thing I’ve taught isn’t about talking — at least the leader’s talking.   I’ve taught there is a hierarchy of verbal persuasion.  The lowest levels, the least effective, are speeches and presentations.  The highest levels, the most effective, are Leadership Talks.  I’ve taught that speeches/presentations communicate information; Leadership Talks, on the other hand, have leaders establish a deep, human, emotional connections with audiences — indispensable in achieving great results.  Of course, the Leadership Talk is by definition about talking.  But […]

The mom needs to work and the father needs to work to support the family financially.

You can greatly improve your job and career performance when you embrace leadership as a sacred calling.  The global marketplace is creating historic changes in human circumstances as broad and deep as those originated by the Industrial Revolution. But one significant change that observers are overlooking involves leadership.   From the outset of the Industrial Revolution, order-giving has been the standard of leadership.  The word “order” comes from the Latin root meaning to arrange threads in a woof. In the Industrial Revolution’s early years, workers were “ordered” or ranked like threads in a woof of textile production lines.   But globalization is […]

Leaders do nothing more important than get results.  But you can’t get results by yourself. You need others to help you do it.
