The Truth about Dead Weight

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 12:46pm 3 Comments

Dead weight is defined by online dictionaries as: “a person who makes no contribution; a useless, usually burdensome factor.” In the workplace dead weight comes in many forms. Here are a few of the most common examples:

1. A team member who may produce the numbers, but doesn’t live your core values.

2. An incompetent team member.

3. An unproductive team member.

4. An overpaid team member, whose compensation far exceeds the worth…

Strategic Pruning for Profits

Posted on November 18, 2013 at 7:19pm 1 Comment

In Dr. Henry Cloud’s book, Necessary Endings, he stresses the necessity of pruning to create a healthier business. Pruning is a proactive process that allows an organization to reach its fullest potential.

In the dictionary, pruning is defined as: a function of cutting away to reduce the extent or reach of something by taking away unwanted or superfluous parts. I’ve long liked the concept of pruning as it allows leaders to leverage strengths and narrow focus on the…

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your acceptance.

I was at the AutoCon luncheon when you spoke and being a man who rarely says no to good food, I stopped my meal took out my notebook and began taking notes. Upon my return and reading them, I thought maybe there was a video of the event or a presentation I could acquire. The speach was one that our dealer principal and others must here or see. If you can or cannot assist me thank you for a wonderful enlightening speach.

Hi Dave,

I had the pleasure of hearing you a few years ago in Seattle WA at a Chevrolet SeaFair kickoff brunch sponsored by the Puget Sound Chevrolet Dealers. I transcribed my notes of your meeting and shared them with ownership. I found your presentation to be information rich, comprehensive, practical and most important founded in core values and principles. Thank you for your contribution to my life as well as the auto industry.
