A formidable organizational culture score is the foremost predictor of future growth and profitability, as demonstrated by hundreds of organizational development studies. In this episode, let’s delve into a system that, almost invariably, has assisted our clients in elevating their culture scores every…single…year to create a workplace where people can authentically say, “Thank God It’s Monday!”
Believe your culture is already exceptional but wish to maintain its progress and safeguard it against potential threats, stay with me.
If, on the other hand, you are dispirited because your attempts to enhance culture have not yet manifested in remarkable performance and employee ownership,
I believe there are days when a workplace can feel more like an “adult daycare” than an office.
In this first episode, I’ll show you the formula that has transformed many crazy workplaces into places that authentically earned their designations as “best places to work.”
Not just great cultures but performance cultures where everyone ties to profit daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly.
If you’re the kind of leader…
Who feels you have a good culture, but there are just a few people who “stir the pot” and bring in their drama.
I believe that when middle managers master management, the resulting breakthroughs are profound and sustainable.
In this episode, I’m going to share with you how to overcome what I call “the middle management breakdown”—the block that keeps executives’ dreams from being the reality executed by the front-line team members.
If you’re the kind of leader who worries that perhaps your managers act more like “individual contributors” and don’t do nearly enough to maximize the results of their team members, I’m going to give you some solid executable ideas to get some traction for your managers.
I believe progress begets progress and success begets success.
In this episode, I’ll show you how you can create a series of successes that open the way for even more impactful successes later on.
On the flipside, stumble once and all your hard work up until then could come tumbling down. I’ll show you how to avoid that eventuality too.
If you’re the kind of leader who is up at night thinking about how to drive through a stubborn performance barrier, listening to this will give you some solid steps to finally have that breakthrough.
I believe visibility of what matters DRIVES the changes that matter.
In this episode, I will show you how you can create results that matter—those that impact profitability through visibility systems.
If you’re the kind of leader who has every employee already aware of exactly what high performance looks like and you have complete visibility on how every employee is doing on the important things that matter, stay tuned because I’ll share with you another, higher level of performance enhancement.
If instead, you don’t really know how every employee is performing every week AND if the ones who look busiest aren’t really the ones that drive profit,
I believe hard work should be rewarded with financial gains.
In this first video and the rest of this five-part series on accountability, I’m going to share with you how to get more accountability from your team members for the things that move the profit needle.
If you’re the kind of leader who has been preaching from the mountain top to your team that they need to “get it together” on accountability, but you feel like you might be mocked as the village idiot soon because it’s not working, you’re going to love this because you CAN break that pattern.
Ever been asked by one of your commercial lenders to match rate to “win the business?”
Does the sun rise in the east?
When we see this happen we can predict, with clock-like precision exactly what’s causing the epidemic…
The lenders are measured on the wrong things. And when you measure the wrong things, you get wrong behaviors.
In today’s video I show you the “invisible link” between your lenders’ job descriptions, how you’re measuring their progress and how often you’re caving in to price pressure, instead of winning the PREMIUM YOU DESERVE…

Inside this 14 point checklist you’ll discover:
You create a strategic plan, promise the board that you will deliver, and then communicate it to your team. You think you’ve covered all of the bases, but the first month in, the sickening reality hits—you’re already off base.
Sure, the economy is tough. And yes, the competition is doing crazy things.
But your board does not want to hear it, and you know that your days of peaceful existence as an executive are coming to an end…unless you get your management team to perform to the expectations—and they get all of THEIR people to perform.
Studies show that 70% of your employees are checked out at work… and it’s costing you!
Have you seen the 2013 Gallup State of the American Workplace Report? It’s one of the clearest reports yet on the vital importance of having an engaged workplace culture. Among the findings were these shocking numbers:
- Employees who are disengaged: 70%
- Employees who are engaged: 30%
Of the 70 percent of American employees who are disengaged, 20 percent are described as “actively disengaged”—they essentially hate their jobs. This leaves fewer than one in three employees to push the rope uphill with very little help from the rest.
The coming bank consolidation isn’t a surprise. It’s been predicted for years. In fact, the next 18 months are destined to be a major “shake out” period when weak banks will be acquired or closed—and banks that are in a position to capture the best customers in town will become stronger and more profitable.
If an opportunity like this landed unexpectedly in your lap, would you be ready? Most banks wouldn’t be. Unfortunately, they’ll suffer years of pain, lost productivity, and even reputation damage from what was previously viewed as the opportunity of a lifetime.
