The Learner and the “J” Curve

Click on 'View My Blog' above to see all my posts.



Leaders are not needed to maintain the status quo; managers are capable of providing that service. Leaders are needed to take an organization to a new, desired place.



A leader must be a Learner, that is, a person who is willing to challenge the assumptions, opinions and facts that have defined his (her) life and career to date. The Learner has a flexible world view, one where he (she) is able to allow… Continue

The Learner Model MM

In the fast paced and rapidly changing business environment of today it is difficult to imagine an organization, which could be successful by doing exactly what it has done in the past. Change is a way of life in contemporary America. The process of change is messy and imprecise. It requires vision, knowledge, skills, a tolerance of risk, and patience. Successfully moving along the process of change requires an additional ingredient, the “right people”. The “right people” are not defined by… Continue

The Value of Intolerance

Click on ‘View My Blog’ above to see all my posts.



It seems obvious, but yet it is not well understood; when developing a new operating concept or model, there has to be a strong motivation for change. The problem with change is not a lack of ideas on how to change a process. The problem does not lie in the efforts to change the physical appearance or the function of the business. The problem is not a matter of acquiring the equipment needed to operate the new… Continue

'Now' Revisited

Click on 'View My Blog' above to see all my posts.





In the last post I made the point that the only time anything is accomplished is in the present moment. Nothing has changed since the last post. All accomplishment occurs in the present moment. The present moment is made relevant however by both the past and the future. Simply put, if you want to make the most out of now you must have an appreciation for the past and expectations for… Continue

It Has to Be NOW!

Click on 'View My Blog' above to see all my posts.





The pace of life seems to be accelerating with every passing day. Certainly the development of internet based communications has collapsed the time float which existed with communications throughout history. We no longer have to wait for a letter to be delivered or even an overnight package of information to arrive. It is possible to have instant access to others and a wealth of information. The time float… Continue

The term ‘auto-response’ has become familiar to most people with even the slightest exposure to electronic communications. Most all of us have received an almost instant auto-response message stating, the person you are sending your message to will not be checking emails for a period of time, so don’t expect a response. To some those messages are helpful. To me they are just another piece of electronic… Continue

Getting Started



Those who know me, but not well, know I say a lot. Those that know me well know that I have a lot to say. Having a lot to say is an admirable but useless trait unless someone is listening. In the past I have had the benefit of a captive audience as I spoke various groups within Bowling, and particularly within the businesses operated by my company, SpareZ, Inc. Now as Past… Continue
