Why Nice Bosses Finish First

July 31st, 2016 by Purpose Unlimited Many bosses (not leaders) assume that in order to be effective they must be tough on their employees. For one reason or another, perhaps cultural norms have led them to believe that looking “soft” will decrease employee motivation and respect for them overall. From my personal experience, I’ve found the opposite to be true. According to Dr. Travis Bradberry, author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, “When it comes to success as a leader, radically tough leadership styles are exceptions to the rule, not the rule.”  Furthermore, in a recent article of his entitled, Why Nice… Read More

How to win the talent war…

By Jim Whitt During one 24 hour period I had four interesting conversations. Conversation #1: Someone in a key position with a large retail organization told me how the manager of one their stores came to him complaining about how poorly she is treated by her supervisor and her supervisor’s supervisor. The store manager is doing a good job — she manages their top performing store. The two supervisors’ behavior is a reflection of the CEO’s behavior. The store manager is actively looking for another job. The company spends next to nothing developing their people. Employees are just numbers —… Read More

Too good to be great?

This is a favorite of Angie Youngblut, one of our longtime subscribers. It was originally published August 9, 2006. I think it’s a great message to share again in our first issue for 2014. If any of you have favorites you think are worth sharing again please let me know. Thanks Angie! By Jim Whitt Whenever I’m speaking I’ll ask the audience, “How many of you want to reach your full potential?” Every hand goes up. Now, I believe they mean it. They really want to. But I also know that when most of them walk out of the room they will… Read More

The new theory of relativity

My week started cohosting the Power of Purpose in Business Radio program with Nathan Mitchell on Sunday night. Our guest was my good friend Mitch Counce, who is CEO of Servi-Tech, Inc. Servi-Tech has been a client of mine since 2007. Mitch talked about how they have implemented the principles from my book, Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership to transform their company. The bottom line results are a 50% increase in revenue over the last five years. Keep in mind that has been during the worst economy our nation has experienced since the Great Depression. Mitch… Read More

The real cost of employee turnover

I wanted to share this article by my friend Nathan Mitchell. Nathan and I will be conducting a workshop in Tulsa on October 3. Click here for details. The real cost of employee turnover By Nathan Mitchell When it comes to costs, many organizations “cross their T’s” and “dot their I’s” – that is, unless you are talking about the costs of employee turnover. For one reason or another, many businesses simply don’t measure it. Some organizations, however, know their percentage of employee turnover quite well, but don’t calculate the long-term consequences on overhead expenses like training and development. What… Read More

Purpose-Based Business Approach Comes to Tulsa and Atlanta

By Jim Whitt I’ve never seen a time in my life where there is more anxiety about the state of our economy than right now. We’ve been mired in an economic swamp since the meltdown of 2008. And yet my business has gotten better each year since 2008. No, I don’t have a magic formula for creating wealth or I’d be selling it in an infomercial on TV. The key to the success of the last four years is directly attributable to what I was doing for the 20 years before 2008. I was building a new business model. I… Read More

Culture Matters

By Jim Whitt I just read an article by Bill Barnett in the Harvard Business Review entitled When Choosing a Job, Culture Matters. That is an understatement. Let me share an example. I know of an employee who went to work for a company and was so excited he couldn’t wait to get started. This exceptionally talented and qualified candidate was hired for a newly created position and he was determined to show what a difference he, and the new position, could make. The problem was that he discovered he was the only one who cared about making a difference…. Read More

Managers wanted: Must possess self-awareness, be coachable and able to coach others

By Jim Whitt I stopped at a fast food place the other day which had an interesting message on its marquee: “Managers Wanted.” Not help wanted but managers wanted. I went inside and discovered just how desperately they needed managers. I stood at the counter waiting while two employees were busy serving customers at the drive-through window. The only other employee I saw was the manager on duty who was wandering around talking on his cell phone. He nearly bumped into me but completely ignored me. No “hello,” no “I’ll be right with you,” no nod of the head, no… Read More

What an Ex Navy Fighter Pilot Has To Say About Pia, Scotty, Lauren and Leadership

I always enjoy hearing from readers. The following is an email I received from Steve that I thought was worth sharing… Hi Jim, I’m 65 years old, very conservative ex Navy fighter pilot and I watch American Idol every week with my seventeen year old daughter. We love the show and have a great time trying to outguess the judges and the American Public.  I admit our favorite was Pia, when she left Caitlyn picked Scotty to win it all, I picked Lauren.  This final week should be interesting but like Reba said we’re “winners either way.” The reason I’m… Read More
