With over 40 years of business experience, ranging from the smallest startups to the Fortune 500, I have seen a wide range of ways to build and manage teams. I have been an individual contributing member of project teams, a middle manager of substantial parts of major projects, and the leader of some huge teams — as many as 1,000.

I have personally seen the best and the worst.

From this experience, I have personally seen the best and the worst — the new boss without a clue and some of the most experienced and enlightened managers in the world. Throughout it all, I’ve learned a great deal. Leading Smart on CLWill.com is my expression of that experience, my vehicle to share the lessons I’ve learned with the world. I hope you find it useful.
