January - Myths of Investor Communications
Busting communications myths that may be holding you back from productive relationships with your investors
February - Leadership: The Foundation of Strategy
Failing to evaluate leadership's capabilities before launching new strategies is simply setting up the strategic plan for failure. Leadership is the real difference between dreaming about capitalizing on exciting opportunities and actually reaching their promised potential.
March - The Best Leader: Superman or Clark Kent?
Most of us separate personal health goals from our career goals, but a recent study suggests that the two are related. It seems that we really would rather have Superman lead us than Clark Kent, based solely on looks.

June - Stupidity Is Clear; Genius Is Hidden

July - Want to Scale the C-Level Mountain, Huh?
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of a new C-level job is the personal sacrifice and mental toil it requires. It really is lonely at the top.

Strategy is often hailed as the elixir to cure all problems, but you need to also make sure your organization's culture is healthy, vibrant and aligned to support implementation of your strategies.
September - Rehumanizing the Organization
The treatment of people as costs instead of important resources results in employees who go home every night feeling like they have no purpose or value. Instead, believe that the most rewarding aspect of leadership is knowing that you are able to make people feel valued and important.
