  • Economic Recovery Is In Corporate Hands

    Everyone wants to see the economy recover, and they’re suggesting all sorts of ways that it can get back on track.  As I read the following article from MSN about the fizzled stock market rally, it occurred to me that there are two key points about an economic recovery, particularly in the USA. The actual state of the economy is largely ...

  • The Power of Appreciation

    All too often, we fail to value the power of seemingly little gestures and acknowledgements.  As a result, we lose much of what brings joy to relationships. This past week, I rejoined the NTSYSADMIN mailing list (sponsored by Sunbelt Software) after a long hiatus (at least 2-3 years).  I first joined that list back in 1996 or 1997, and ...

  • Key Principles for Maximizing IT Value

    I just came across the following article while checking through my LinkedIn group discussions:  Some IT Leadership Principles for CEO's & Business Leaders It is definitely a worthy read, and requires very little commentary.  These simply stated principles encompass a wealth of information which organizations would do well to ...

  • The Responsibility of Leadership

    Over the past few months, I have read a number of outstanding articles in the Harvard Business Review on leadership.  These articles address some of the attributes of leaders, as well as outline some challenges and pitfalls of leadership. I have found it very interesting that much of the guidance and research on leadership mirrors what the ...

  • Busy In Ministry

    This year, I have become more deeply involved in a number of ministries, and I find myself needing a lot of time to get all of it done.  In addition to my ongoing duties in Family Ministries and Junior Division Sabbath School at my church, I have accepted a few new committee membership responsibilities at the conference level.  I’ve ...

  • Effective IT Leadership

    This month, I’ve been reading some really good articles and books on IT Leadership and Project Management, including several books by Bob Lewis, author of Keep the Joint Running. If you consider yourself an IT Leader, you could do much, much worse than to purchase one or more of the books you find on his website, and then apply some of the ...

  • Where has all the integrity gone?

    For the past week or so, I’ve been reading all about the financial fallout stemming from Bernard Madoff’s arrest. The estimated $50 billion in losses that his massive Ponzi scheme generated, is by far the largest financial loss ever attributed to a single individual.
