Slideshow: Leadership and Succession Development

I have recently started utilizing my Slideshow account in which you can follow me here for all my latest updates. My latest slideshow that I have uploaded goes over a popular topic of leadership and succession development. With this slideshow, I focus on the pharma industry, however many of the topics and information in the powerpoint, can be applied to all industries as well. The slideshow goes in-depth into what succession development is, and how we do it. There are also many examples and diagrams I’ve used for previous clients (leadership pipelines and engagement strategies, etc.). Hopefully you can take away a lot of valuable information, and don’t forget to follow me on SlideShare!

Leland Sandler Describes the Importance of Systems Thinking for Executives

I posted a video last week about how important it is for Executives to think in a systematic manner. If you watch the video below, I talk about why it’s as crucial as ever in the complex and fast-paced world we live in. In general, senior leadership and executives need to adjust their mental approach in order to reach full potential for their business. Whether in a time of hardship or not, executives need to keep this in mind.

Create a Sustainable Company Culture

As an executive advisor, one thing I help my clients achieve is helping create a long-term and permanent solution in attaining a healthy company culture. This isn’t an easy thing to do. As you watch the video below, I explain four principles on how companies can achieve their optimal culture and environment.

  1. In order to be excellent, we need to know whats true
  2. By being radically truthful and transparent, we build meaningful work and meaningful relationships
  3. We value independent thinking and innovation, recognizing that independent thinking generates disagreement, and innovation requires making mistakes
  4. Create and support a culture in which it is OK to make mistakes, but unacceptable not to identify, analyze, and learn from them

Feel free to watch my video below and let me know what you think. I will continue to regularly upload videos to my YouTube channel, so if you haven’t yet, be sure to subscribe to get updated on my latest uploaded videos.


What Makes a Quality Executive Advisor?

I get asked this question a lot. Check out my latest video on what I believe makes a quality Executive Advisor. The main keys include establishing a personal context for business (from operations, to marketing to finance), not just for the understanding of this world, but to better understand what people go through and what it is like to be in their shoes in addition to focusing on your own development as an individual in order to be effective with others.
