Dr. L. Todd Thomas, premier coach in global leadership development and president of IMPACT Consulting and Development, LLC., recently seen on Fox Business News, CNBC has been asked to join TheStreet.com as a featured weekly columnist.
TheStreet.com is a leading financial media company with a network of Web sites that covers all areas of money from investing and personal finance to in-depth financial coverage from financial insiders including Paul Rubillo, Jim Cramer and Howard Simmons. Thomas' column 'Leadership Matters' appears every Monday in the 'Don't Miss' section of the site and covers all aspects of leadership in business. In his first column, 'Urgency and Panic,' published Monday March 30, 2009, Thomas discussed the need for urgency in tough times and the different affect urgency versus panic has on workers.
"Creating a sense of urgency is necessary in trying times. Without it, teams and organizations become complacent and at the mercy of the external forces around them. A sense of panic on the other hand can paralyze a group as they struggle with uncertainty. It is well worth the time to determine where your team stands today and to engage them fully in the coming months. You can't afford to miss the opportunity."
