What Would I Tell My 22-Year-Old Self

Posted by:

A lot of times I have been in business situations where I look around and I think: “They must know something I don’t know, because they’re doing it this way instead of that way.” But yet when I would step back and look at things, it didn’t make sense to me – there were always better ways to do things. Each time I would step back and look from one of those situations and scratched my head, it had to ...

It’s not that any of these discussions are Machiavellian or they’re super secret, it just means that you can let your hair down. It’s sitting around other like-minded professionals and being ...

Honoring Veterans in the C-Suite

Posted by:

My father was a military man, a sergeant in the United States Air Force. He served 3 tours in Vietnam during my earlier years of growing up. He is also the man who taught me how to go hunting, fishing and all of the outdoor things that I enjoy in my life.  He had a big impact on my psyche, so to say.

Executive Retreats: Get Outside the C-Suite

Posted by:

There are lots of different ways for c-suite leaders can get together, and they should get together even outside of the boardroom. The executive team of Mitel makes it a point to get together on a regular basis. The executive team of CrossFit takes their board meetings to the beach, BBQ, or anywhere else that isn’t a boardroom. One of the ways I do this is through my ‘executive retreat’ in South Dakota (another ...

These individuals are all c-suite executives at their respective companies, such as Marketo, Pandora, and the Detroit Pistons.

Having Enemies in Business

Posted by:

I’m a firm believer that you always want to have an enemy in business, whether the enemy is a competitor, idea, or way of doing things. In the case of C-Suite TV, our enemy was the current way of distributing television. Standard broadcast and cable will never go away, but television is changing and we need to adapt to the changing of viewer behavior. One of the old thoughts was that viewers have shorter attention spans, so all content needs ...
