  • Risk? What risk?

    Here is another compelling argument that being an entrepreneur is a risky business! Duh! We live in the age of the startup. It’s never been easier to build a product and start a company. And, thanks to the boom in angel investing and crowdfunding, it’s never been easier for startups to raise money… But there’s a catch: starting a company may be easier, but making it a success isn’t. And another reason why starting Lean can avoid some pain.

    After four years I have moved on from IBM where I was a Managing Consultant with the Strategy and Transformation group in Australia. I worked with some great clients and people around the planet. The writing was on the wall though when recently they changed the title of our global group to Strategy and Analysis. Yep IBM was going back to its roots, using its superiority in computational power to corner the market in big data. The emphasis on ‘transformation’ and the consulting services that went with that would reduce. And with the timing right I chose to go. But there was a deeper…

    Photo courtesy of iStock Photo I’ll admit that I had a bad habit for a while. The habit was trying to move forward in my personal and professional life with the predominant perspective being my past. I would focus on what hadn’t worked as well as my failures with a sincere desire to not make the same mistake again. But do you know what happened? I repeated them just in different ways. Instead of looking forward and leveraging my successes, I was blinded by the past and this inhibited my enjoyment and appreciation for what I’d accomplished. Doing this hindered my ability to…

    Be Distinct or Be Extinct from Hugh Blane on Vimeo. Video Notes: This weeks question comes from Sean Ellis at the University of Georgia. Sean asks, “Hugh, how do you develop your personal brand in general? With management, customers, peers or customers?” Sean, that’s a really good question and I think the best way to position this idea is by sharing with you what my old boss, Tom Peters, used to say. He said, “be distinct or be extinct.” Tom believed that if there is nothing very distinctive about your work, in the eyes of the people who are important to you, you’d be extinct. How…

A belief that acknowledges that thoughts and feelings influence their behavior, and that through their own choosing, they can be a purveyor of positive, uplifting, hopeful and enthusiastic beliefs that benefit themselves, their employees, their organization and their customers. Being a purveyor of positivity allows for the following benefits: 1. During times of change…

    Photo courtesy of iStock Photo A promise is a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen. There are three people you must make promises to in order to be a transformational leader: yourself, your employees and your customers. 1. Promises to you come first. Leaders must first make a promise to themselves that is supportive of their priorities and promises to others. By making a promise to yourself first, you are declaring what it is you can be relied on to do or accomplish. 2. Promises to employees come next. You will never have happy…

  • The 1 question you need to answer when you start consulting

    15 Jul 2014 | 8:52 am
    Start My Consulting Business - Ditch your day job. Make things happen. Change your life. There’s a question you need to answer when you start consulting (or any business) that’s crucial to your success. Once you know the question, it’ll seem ridiculously obvious. But still, few ask it, and fewer still know how to answer it. Before I show you what I mean, here’s an example of what you might be doing right now as you start consulting. Keep in mind that starting a consulting business is, essentially, learning a new skill: the skill of building a successful business.
