There are several things businesspeople (and spouses and parents) do that aren’t quite as ridiculous as handling snakes and force-feeding kids but are nevertheless pretty dumb. We just don’t see it. What behavior or practices do you condone or reward in your business that don’t work?  Here are some I see frequently: Asking for X behavior but rewarding Y behavior. X might be profit, and Y might be revenue. X might be collaboration, and Y might be lone-ranger behavior. X might be quality, and Y might be speed or cost. You get the picture. By Todd Ordal

Hire and promote for head and heart
The way most leaders go about identifying and promoting talent is utterly insufficient for what is needed to create a great organization. They focus mostly on the head and neglect the heart. They emphasize hard skills and capabilities like knowledge, skills, and expertise. They assess intelligence, education, pedigree, experience, technical competence, skills, and other conventional indicators. By Bob and Gregg Vanourek
