It’s vital for leaders in every business to effectively anticipate trends. Know what challenges your company will face five years down the road and how you can prepare for them.
A new report from Glassdoor revealed that 14 of the top 25 highest-paying jobs that have high demand for talent are tech-related positions. This week on Inc.com, I share details about “The Top 5 Highest-Paying Tech Jobs in 2015.”

One thing that’s struck me over the last year is that in so many different aspects of life, when you focus directly on what it is you want for yourself, often you end up with short term, shallow results. It seems that in order to get long term, meaningful results, you often need to focus […]

Titles aside, both Max Brown and I are playing the role of culture coaches at Pluralsight. This is an advisory role, and while we don’t make policy decisions, the leadership team seeks advice from us on a regular basis. Deming proposed a transformation of management away from command and control. He proposed substituting “leadership”. Managers are going to have […]
Recently a question came up around Deming’s philosophy – if the system is responsible for 96% of the output, why should the individual work hard if his performance doesn’t matter anyway?

Aaron, Fritz, and I have been working together since the late ’90’s (that’s over 15 years […]
Stop for a moment and think about what a traditional job in management can be. More pay and perks, with less individual contribution in favor of “using” people to get work done. Set targets, hold your people accountable to those targets, motivate them with carrots and sticks. I suppose a lot of people aspire to […]
Take a look at how our authors are training with Pluralsight around the globe this summer.
