Startup Your People by Paul Moran

Startup Your People By Paul Moran Venture Capital (VC)  is experiencing a fundamental change and evolving to meet the pace of today’s fast-moving markets.  In recent months, deal sizes and valuations have spiked higher than ever; due diligence on startups has evaporated as investors compete to get into hot deals first; venture firms have started investing much more than they normally do;  hyper-fast follow-on rounds are increasingly common; and more non-traditional investors are backing [...]

Changing Course: The Leadership Shift By Chuck Mollor

Changing Course: The Leadership Shift By Chuck Mollor It happens to all of us at some point in our career. The formula for success we had utilized to date, and the strengths we had leveraged to be successful, need to be modified as we shift to a more senior role or as an organization and its culture evolve. This shift includes: How you budget your time How you prioritize and delegate How you influence [...]

Executive Presence: What Will Others See and Hear By Chuck Mollor

Executive Presence: What Will Others See and Hear By Chuck Mollor Executive presence is the combination of being able to confidently command a room and interact with others, whether it be with one person, a team, or a broader audience.

Developing Effective Teams By Chuck Mollor

Developing Effective Teams By Chuck Mollor Great teams are the building blocks of any organization. They have shared goals, clear roles, transparent processes for solving problems and making decisions, and the ability to deal with conflicts constructively. A good team may have some of these elements, but a great team will have them all. There are three key dimensions of great teamwork. The first is alignment on direction. There should be a shared belief [...]

What’s on Your Wall?

It is hard to imagine that is has been a year since our world changed as we knew it.  Before COVID, I don’t recall conversations about pandemics, mass vaccines, antigens, closures, limited travel, masks, toilet paper, sanitizer, virtual only, lockdowns and to name a few.  This year has taught us so much about who we are, what we value, what we cannot live without, how we adapt and how strong we are. We asked [...]

This type of personal accountability seems easier with the assistance of a plan [...]

Do You Engage in Conflict? by Chuck Mollor

The word “conflict” often conjures images of confrontation and anger, but this is often not the case. Disagreements occur in even the most positive and productive work relationships—at least, they should. Conflict itself is neither inherently good nor bad—what is perceived as positive or negative is how the differences are managed and the outcome ensues. There is a phenomenon that we are experiencing in the workforce today, and more broadly in our culture: The [...]

Investing in Virtual Relationships

Think of a time when you worked on an incredible team — maybe it’s right now — or on a personal or professional project. What made it great?
