LEADERSHIP: Are you a genius or an idiot? Just ask your employees

September 25, 2006
Do me a favor. Take out a piece of paper and draw a line across the middle from left to right. On the far left side of the line, put the letter "I," and on the far right side of the line, place the letter "G." Now set this piece of paper aside for just a minute and let's address one of the biggest challenges facing leaders today-getting the most out of every member of your team. Regardless of where...

LEADERSHIP: Consistency key to influencing employees' behavior

May 29, 2006
Being a leader is not a part-time job. I have worked with many leaders who failed to recognize this truth. In fact, I am sure there have been times throughout my career where I haven't provided the leadership that my team required. The truth is that it's easy to be a great leader when things are going well. When sales are up, profits are growing and customers are happy, it seems that you have all the right answers. You lead...

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
