Tone Tools Design Goodwill in War Zones

Ever have a day when work became combat, and your workplace a war zone? When problems arise, the last place leaders look for solutions is within differences that caused battles in the first place. Have you seen it?

Gary, manufacturing manager in NY, is more typical of leaders we meet who see differences as the cause for poor tone.

Mita Pillars for Excellence

To be honest, I wanted to lead excellence, far more than I wanted to design a model to make it happen.

Conventional approaches won’t get past gridlock or compromise as seen in the lack of punch needed to stretch and grow new job opportunities. We have a long way to go, when you watch toxins stunt growth in less resilient workforces, while morale tanks. Loss and failure’s no surprise, when disconnect exists between what brains do well and what managers neglect to do. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Passion for Novelty – Communities of Genius

The human brain comes with unique equipment to build and sustain innovative cultures that passionate people crave. When passion stirs communities to prime their talents for a finer future, innovation tends to fuel genius. How so?

Why is Change so Hard?

Why is change from traditional to innovative so hard for some to embrace, and how do resources shift from people who guard status quo – to innovative leaders who sustain communities of passion? How would you answer?

Personal Intelligence for Organizational Growth

Intrapersonal intelligence offers you amazing tools for personal progress at work. Why then do many fail to benefit from intuitive intelligence? Become who you want others to see in you, and you’ll advance a personal IQ that stokes enthusiasm from others too.  It’s about bumping up against daily stressors without … Read more »

Have you ever seen sacred cows  consume innovation at its roots? I have. Wherever you hear the catchword critical thinking discussed, you find new definitions. The only part people seem to hold in common is that you should wield critical thinking to solve problems. Have you noticed it doesn’t work… Read more »
