Adamchik's Laws of Leadership

I have discovered three simple principles that, when properly applied, make your leadership journey incredibly rewarding..

Talking Points For Leaders

When you watch politicians there is no doubt what the message is. They stay “on message” and it doesn’t really matter what questions they are asked, they always come back to their message. How about you?

Full Contact Leadership

No business is immune to this crisis, and some are even more susceptible to it than others. Real leaders today are few and far between. We have great technicians and great managers, but few great leaders.

The Road Signs of Leadership

Just like traffic signs give us information, employees provide signs that give us information too. But employees are often subtle and hard to interpret, or we are not tuned in to looking for the signals, so we miss them.

24/7 Customer Centric

We live in a customer centric society. Consumers don’t just go shopping anymore; they want to be comforted by a brand... People in our society seek an ever increasing degree of satisfaction whenever they purchase something.

Get Bad At What You Do!

Manager. Foreman. Supervisor. Boss. These are all titles for the person who is responsible for getting a job done by directing other people. They might describe you or someone you work with. The key point, regardless of the title, is that this person is tasked with accomplishing a certain amount of work beyond that which one person is capable of doing.

Client Comments:

" was one of the most dynamic and interesting talks I have ever witnessed on general leadership and effective management. I thought it was very interested to see how you approached the topic from the bottom up -- from the grunt's perspective. This made the topic very easy for me to relate to and gave me ideas on how to develop the leaders I am responsible for."
