6 steps every leader needs to take to stay in front

By Kendall Langston on Mar 2, 2013

High performance leaders make time to plan ahead.

As I go about my daily work with business leaders, I find myself constantly encouraging them to plan ahead. Being reactive leads to them constantly “playing catch-up.” As a team leader myself, I find it is a constant challenge to be one step ahead of the team, to see what is coming next and to shape the future so I understand the challenge.

Business Leadership: The Big 5 Lessons of 2012

By Kendall Langston on Jan 5, 2013

It is summer here in New Zealand. A time when people take a longer holiday and enjoy family, time in the outdoors and exploring our beautiful country. Business leaders need time out, and I try to take at least three weeks off and to unplug from the grid. This means deleting the e-mail accounts from my cell phone and not being available!

Recently one of our Software users submitted a question on our website and asked the following, “What do I do if someone in my sales team does not hit their targets each week and has a red dashboard? How do I handle that?”

If Change isn’t Needed - it is Probably Time to Change

By Kendall Langston on Sep 8, 2012

Most days I am working with business leaders who are trying to drive business execution and achieve better results.  Finding the time to execute their strategic plan whilst managing the fast pace of “business as usual” is the biggest challenge for the leader of any organisation. In reality, it is really about making strategic execution the number one priority on an extensive priority list.

Leadership tools to drive Business Execution Success

By Kendall Langston on Jul 14, 2012

Leading people is one of life’s great challenges and privileges. Every day at RESULTS.com I work with CEO’s and Business owners who have “People Issues”. Let's face it we all have them from time to time, and dare I say it when you are in the leadership game, "People Issues" are "Business as Usual". So why do leaders dread it so much?
