Leaders, Do Your Meetings Sound Like This?

Leaders, in our continual quest to take down obstacles for our teams, to help them succeed, we always asks, “Is this meeting necessary? Will it add value today?” We try to make our meetings bearable by stating a clear purpose, by inviting only those who are central to that purpose, and by keeping focus on the goal, yet even in the best run meetings we experience the agony of missed communication. Let’s all watch and laugh at ourselves as Leadercast host Tripp Crosby demonstrates how the best of meetings can go awry.

What’s worse than a conference call? A conference call in real life.

Leadercast is a one-day event broadcast live from Atlanta to over 100,000 leaders around the globe, sponsored at Oshkosh by Deft Flux. Join us at Leadercast Oshkosh.

Leaders, Do You Know How to High Five?

Leaders, as we look back at 2013, we remind ourselves that it is apropos to review ourselves, praise our teams, and celebrate some wins.  Amongst our teams, we have observed uncertainty.  Folks are asking, “How much gaiety is required?” and “What is the appropriate mode of celebration?”

Some wins call for raucous cheers. Others call for a quiet “yes!”  Our purpose today, however, is not to prescribe appropriate celebrations by context.  Instead, we share a lesson we learned at the Leadercast — namely, that the high five is a universal tool, the lineman’s pliers of celebration.  A high five always works.  It is always powerful.  Moreover, the high five is most powerful in its simplest form.  Like a pair of lineman’s pliers, it does not need our improvements.

Today, we present a brief instructional video by Leadercast host Tripp Crosby, reminding us to use high fives appropriately.  Remember, they do not cost anything, so hand out a few today.

Leaders – Get Ready for Simon Sinek!

Leaders, why should you build your leadership muscles?  You care about your work.  You care about your team.  You long for your team to win.  We believe that Leadercast 2014 is one of the best one-day workouts your leadership muscles can get.

In anticipation, we have watched the Leadercast folks spend the better part of this month trickling out speaker announcements for 2014.  We are especially excited about Simon Sinek and Laura Bush.  If you haven’t heard Simon speak yet, he is the author of Start with Why, and you can do a few leadership pushups today by watching this TED talk — How great leaders inspire action.

Leadercast Oshkosh 2013

Chick-fil-A® Leadercast® is a one-day leadership event broadcast LIVE from Atlanta, Georgia to hundreds of locations around the world.  Last year we had the opportunity to attend the Leadercast at Oshkosh and take along a few clients and our experience was so valuable that we decided to sponsor Chick-fil-A® Leadercast® Oshkosh 2013.  We are looking forward with eager anticipation to seeing and hearing the likes of John Maxwell, Mike Krzyzewski, Andy Stanley, Henry Cloud, and Jack Welch.  Can you pack all of that wisdom into one day for a better price? This year’s Leadercast will take place on May 10.  Get your tickets, directions, and everything else at the Leadercast Oshkosh site.

Check out some highlights from last year and the teaser for 2013:

Agile Dragonfly Launch

The Ruby Ruby on Rails project formerly known as Southeastern Safety Services has transitioned from a single-client custom solution to a project that is available to any insurance inspector (or any inspector for that matter) around the world.  We have called this web-based service Agile Dragonfly.  Sign-up is quick and easy and we think the user experience is pleasant.  We would be pleased as punch if you would let your fingers do the walking on over to the Agile Dragonfly site and try out the live demo.

Hello world!

Hello world.  Deft Flux is now a real company.
