What Makes You Glow

Hire Slow, Fire Fast


With the core values in front of us, we used the People Analyzer to determine whether everyone else in the organization shared the same set of core values as the leadership team.

Open Up and Grow: The Proven Process


I’m a bit of a nature lover so for my weekly “Clarity Break,” I wake up early on Sunday mornings and walk in nature. One of my favorite things to do is to be peaceful and observe the proven processes of how nature works. It’s disciplined, has a rhythm, it is repeatable and scalable.

Why You Should Say NO to 10,000 Good Ideas


Businesses that try to take on 10,000 good ideas don’t gain traction.

Roles and responsibilities aren’t clear, and it’s difficult to attract talent when the company itself isn’t clear on what they […]

Good Turnover

Introducing the Concept of Good Turnover


There are people within your company right now, who are NOT the right people for your company.
