The Tim Ancona Leadership Blog
Tim Ancona

I’ve had the good fortune of being in a variety of leadership positions for over 25 years and in the CEO position for 17 of them.

During that time, I’ve also been instrumental in helping other leaders, in some cases by sharing my mistakes so they can avoid them. That’s where the idea for these videos comes from. I’m always interested in getting better myself and doing anything I can to help others.

In these video blogs, my commitment is to be brief and to provide actionable information to help you in your leadership role. If you enjoy what you see, I hope you won’t be shy about posting comments that will help me improve.

Thanks for your time, which is the most valuable thing we can give.

Taking a Break to Be a Better Leader [VIDEO – 2:35]

In my last post, I talked about how important it is to take time to relax and refuel—and I’ve been enjoying relaxing with my family during these dog days of summer. But how do I refuel in the business sense? By getting out of the office for a couple of days to attend the Global …

Relax and Refuel [VIDEO – 3:03]

I was listening to a leadership talk while on vacation recently, and it reminded me that a leader’s job is not just to lead people. That’s a big chunk, of course, but it’s equally important to lead yourself. That means finding time to focus on YOU—whether that means taking a sabbatical, or reading a book …
