International Women’s Day: Running the World

These opening lyrics were made famous by Beyoncé in her song, Run the World (Girls). Part defiant, part inspirational, this song is often the battle cry of women worldwide. And as we prepare to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8th, we take these words to heart. Celebrated for over a century, International Women’s Day is a global day to highlight the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Some will mark this day celebrating women and the strides we have made. Others will mark this day in protest for how far we still have to go towards achieving gender equality.

Presidents’ Day: Lessons in Leadership

Today we observe Presidents’ Day. It was originally started in the 1880s to commemorate the birth of our nation’s first president, George Washington, on his actual birthday, February 22nd. This federal and state holiday has gone through some changes over the years: being combined with Lincoln’s birthday for a hybrid observation and ultimately being moved to the third Monday of February under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968. The law amended certain holidays to be celebrated on a Monday to allow federal employees more three-day weekends. The bill went into effect in 1971 and then-President Nixon encouraged Americans to observe this day as a “holiday set aside to honor all presidents, even myself.” Today, many of us enjoy this as a three-day holiday weekend by participating in local patriotic parades and reenactments, doing community service, sleeping in or taking advantage of the various sales offered by retailers.

Dynamic Capital 2019 Economic Outlook

Dynamic Capital 2019 Economic Outlook: Less Gloom and More Boom

The economic outlook for 2019 can be looked at in one of two ways – through the scope of the pessimistic geo-political noise dominating the headlines, or via the time-tested evidence our economy is spitting out indicating continued strength for U.S. markets. We at Dynamic Capital choose the latter, as do many of this nation’s CEOs surveyed by the Business Roundtable CEO Economic Outlook Survey. Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Chairman of Business Roundtable said, “The BRT CEO survey shows that confidence among America’s business leaders remains strong.”

Leadership

Effective Leadership – What’s Your Style?

There is a popular saying that states, “heavy is the head that wears the crown”. This phrase aptly describes the weight of responsibility business owners face daily. Many people want to be leaders, but they do not realize that it is more than titles and perks; it comes with the heavy task of making decisions that can make or break a company. It also entails effectively managing a workplace that continues to be diverse, made up of individuals from different backgrounds and with different motivations and finding the right influencer to motive them to creativity and productivity.

How do I get my employees to be more accountable for results

How do I get my employees to be more accountable for results?

Accountability is not simply taking the blame when something goes wrong. It’s not a confession. Accountability is about delivering on a commitment. It’s a responsibility to an outcome, not just a set of tasks. It’s taking initiative with thoughtful, strategic follow-through.

And it’s necessary at all levels of the hierarchy. Executives high on the org chart can’t really be accountable unless the people who report to them also follow through on their commitments. This a struggle, of course. I have seen leaders direct, question, and plead. I have seen them yell, act passive-aggressively, and throw up their hands in frustration — all in the service of “holding people accountable.”
