Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

My latest article for Inc, on building a management transition team (since you know, transition teams aren’t just for presidents) is available at http://www.inc.com/charles-edge/when-managers-change-tips-for-the-new-boss.html. It starts like this:
“The only thing that never changes is that everything changes,” author Louis L’Amour wrote. Nowhere is this truer than in business. Managers leaveget promoted or are transferred to different jobs. As an incoming manager, you face a special challenge when taking the reins from someone who may have led the team for a long time. As the “new kids in town” you owe it to yourself, your new reports and the organization not to get caught flat-footed during the transition.

My latest article for Inc Magazine is now available, called “8 Ways to Deal with Disappointment in Business”
It starts off a bit like this:
Disappointment is inevitable in business. Everything can’t go your way all the time. Maybe you didn’t close that one sale you wanted. Maybe your budget didn’t get the increase you wanted. Maybe you got passed over for that promotion. So how you deal with disappointment is as important a business skill as understanding finance or being a good leader. It keeps you steady when times get tough, it strengthens you to stay in the game for great opportunities in the future.

And things like momentum need that energy to ignite into tornadoes of business.
