  • Legacy Business Coaching

    Whether you are launching a Change initiative or well on your way in creating a new culture, leaders can respond differently to the changing behavioral expectations.  Legacy Business Cultures Workshops and Training provide a foundation of new ideas and an invitation for leaders to adopt new skills. While some naturally embrace the change effort, others may struggle.  Coaching helps raise the awareness of leaders as to how their behaviors can help or hinder the change process, and provide them with new skills and methods to enhance their effectiveness in a changing environment.

  • Do Nice Guys Really Finish Last? October 31, 2014 8:00am

    As I work on a high-stakes campaign for federal office, I’m struck by two dichotomies. How absolutely gracious and friendly people can be as well as how ugly, hateful and judgmental.

Having been in the business 20 yrs or so, it seems to me this is universal and irrespective of locale, geography or demographics. Content source: Do Nice Guys Really Finish Last?

  • Can People Really Change? October 3, 2014 8:00am

    I get asked this question a lot when I do one-on-one sensitivity training sessions. These situations typically arise when a very valuable or very senior person (or both) engages in some kind of problematic behavior (e.g., inappropriate or unprofessional comments, bullying behavior, harassment). The employer wants to keep said employee but try to rehabilitate him or her. Content source: Can People Really Change?
