Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition 2013

Trio President, Mr. David A. Turner, JR., was invited as a guest to the Air Force Association’s Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition, 2013. The conference was held in the beautiful Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD. Mr. Turner was invited as an industry leader to participate in the future of the industry. Admiral Winnefeld, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed the, “future of the Joint Force, focusing on the military”s strategic direction through the lens of ends, ways, and means and how the military instrument of national power, including the U.S. Air Force, can be postured to effectively protect U.S. national interests in an uncertain future environment.” Admiral Winnefeld discussed going forward and pointed out that successful leaders and organizations “face reality.” “We have to realize the most important thing going forward is capability over capacity,” said the Admiral. Admiral Winnefeld continued, “in this search for capability in the Air Force we need people who can lead change, that’s our biggest weapon going forward.”

 

 

Trio Consulting and The Leadership Institute are perfectly positioned to support the Vice Chairman’s vision of capability and leadership as our biggest weapons for moving forward. Trio MEANS capability. The Leadership Institute not only identifies and recognizes leaders but we also prepare and train leaders to be the best they can be and achieve the pinnacle of their leadership capability.

10 Leaders Changing the Content Landscape

10 Leaders Changing the Content Landscape

10 Leaders Changing the Content Landscape

It’s difficult to stay ahead of the curve in the world of content. The barriers can be so low that they attract people making noise about new trends — not the thought leaders we need to learn from. In addition, content can come in many forms, creating a large, unmanageable swath of information.

The Future of Content

Here’s a list of leaders who will help you weed through that information and get a bead on where the world of content is headed.

Ann Handley of MarketingProfs

Ann Handley of MarketingProfs

Ann Handley of MarketingProfs

In a very crowded space, MarketingProfs has developed a reputation for equipping businesses to successfully market their products and services. Ann believes the biggest opportunity in her space is the idea of brands as publishers. Those brands need to have an idea of what they’re doing so as not to squander this opportunity. If you’re going to jump into brand publishing, pay attention to a leader like Ann.

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post

Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post

It should come as no surprise that Arianna made this list. HuffPost has been a content platform that has given readers a channel for niches ranging from sleep to sex. The publication has combined blogger/contributor content with headline-worthy news from sources like the AP and Reuters — and made the combination feel natural. In everything from her political career to her controversial books, Arianna has been bold.

As much as I wanted to avoid listing a two-person leader, it would have been unjust not to recognize the combination of tech and strategy at HubSpot. In a plan put together six years ago, Dharmesh and Brian announced the launch of Signals and new Inbound Marketing Software. Their leadership in the inbound area has moved content areas like whitepapers, blogs, and eBooks into a new realm. Their blog is a valuable resource for diving into inbound content.

Evan Williams of Medium

With a track history including Blogger and Twitter, you’d predict that Evan might have another success story in his future. The current content world tends to reward content that chases page views. Medium’s “reddit” style of voting rewards content quality. As well as lists and quick shares are doing now, companies like Medium will last for the long haul because Evan’s vision focuses on quality, rather than low-cost page views.

Mark Johnson of Zite

There are quite a few content aggregators on the scene, but Zite’s mobile platform seems to always stay ahead of the curve. The company most recently jumped into the wearables area via the launch of Google Glass. By combining artificial intelligence looking at millions of articles each day from tens of thousands of sources with breakthrough technology, Mark’s a leader to follow in the content aggregator space.

Eli Pariser of Upworthy

Like HubSpot, it’s difficult to separate a two-person leadership team, especially when it combines the experience with The Onion and MoveOn.org. Fast Company recently declared Upworthy the fastest-growing media property of all time. By combining highly curated and emotional content, they have been able to create a virality machine with content that’s substantially higher in social sharing than other media properties. They set a great example for incorporating the importance of social sharing in content distribution.

Rustin Banks of TapInfluence

Rustin may be an unknown, but that status looks pretty temporary. Tapping into influencers is an essential part of content distribution. Rather than suffering the headache of creating your own channels, TapInfluence allows you to “tap into others.” Others have journeyed into this area, but Rustin’s natural passion to make a true impact on the bottom line and deliver a turnkey process will differentiate him from others. Keep an eye out for Rustin.

Ryan Roslansky of LinkedIn

It’s no secret that LinkedIn is turning into a content king. LinkedIn’s four core content areas include the Influencer program, which provides content from 300 of the world’s key thought leaders, such as Bill Gates, Meg Whitman, and Richard Branson; LinkedIn Today, which surfaces personalized and trending news; the ability to discover and share professional content and topics via SlideShare presentations; and starting professional conversations in a more visual way with the use of rich media like photos. By surfacing the right content to the right members at the right time, LinkedIn provides professionals with relevant insights that can help them be more productive and make smarter business decisions throughout their workday and career. In a quick conversation with Ryan, you sense the brilliance LinkedIn is shining on the content world, as well as the passion he has for the company.

Brands are just now starting to catch on to the value of quality content, while Scott and his team have believed in it for several years. The new OPEN Forum combines a platform with quality content with a community of small business owners and the experts who can help them overcome real challenges.For example, Josh Sprague, the CEO of an outdoor gear company, recently asked the OPEN Forum community how others are managing to ramp up their Facebook engagement. Not only did the OPEN Forum editor jump in and suggest an article published on OPEN Forum, but dozens of fellow CEOs and business owners offered advice as well. In a short encounter with Scott, you can get acquainted with the creativity and innovation fueling AmEx as a leader in content.

Shane Snow of Contently

Shane Snow of Contently

Contently is building the technological plumbing that could one day underlie all great brand publishing on the Web (and a lot of traditional publishing as well), while simultaneously providing a home and free tools for the thousands of professional journalists who now work as freelancers. Shane has gained fans by providing an opportunity for many reporters and, at the same time, streamlining the content process for brands. As more enter the realm of brand content publishing, Shane is one to keep an eye on.

This list is all over the world of content for a reason: Brand publishing, content platforms, content aggregation, and content marketing are all important. It’s vital to not just follow one, but to see how they all function and integrate with each other. I’m sure there are a lot of great leaders I missed, but following these leaders will certainly help you stay ahead of the content curve.

10 Personality Traits of an Effective Independent Consultant

10 Personality Traits of an Effective Independent Consultant

10 Personality Traits of an Effective Independent Consultant

Many consultants daydream about branching out on their own without giving much thought to what skills are necessary to succeed as a freelancer. Before you commit to being an independent consultant, read this list.

  1. Be Confident – You have to look at a challenge and say, “I could do that.” It might even help if you are a little megalomaniacal about your thinking; for example: “I can do anything, given enough time and information.” Now that we live in an era in which information is almost always only a google away, the question becomes, “Do I have enough time to master this?” Most of the spectacular failures of consulting engagements probably result from a false positive answer to that question — stemming from the very hubris that makes it possible to be successful.
  2. Be a Problem Solver – You need to be passionate about solving problems, because that is what you’ll be doing all day. Whether it’s a problem with computers, logistics, or personnel, your clients want you to solve it. Consulting may be for you if you like math and word problems; find problems in daily life more of a challenge in optimization than a drag; and enjoy playing a difficult game or solving a tough puzzle.
  3. Be Motivated – You have to be able to keep yourself on task, especially if you work from a remote office. If you can’t control your tendency to procrastinate, you’ll never get anything done — and if you never get anything done, you won’t keep your clients.
  4. Be Obsessive – Many of the problems you encounter will take a lot of mental juice to solve, which means that you need to be able to focus your attention for long periods of time. You also need to be able to continue to process a problem in the background when you’re not giving it full attention. Some of my best solutions come to me in my sleep, in the shower, while taking a walk, or while engaged in some other activity.
  5. Be a Lateral Thinker – While it’s important to focus on a specific problem, you should also be able to see beyond the task at hand and question the assumptions that led to the problem; this can help you predict problems and find opportunities that your client hasn’t considered.
  6. Be Personable – You’ll be involved in more than one company’s culture, and in each case, you’ll be seen as an outsider at the beginning. You need to be able to win the confidence of strangers who may be initially threatened by your presence. A big dose of humor works wonders, especially when you direct it at yourself.
  7. Be Flexible – You will have to accommodate the priorities of multiple clients, as well as be flexible about managing your time and money. For instance, you might get an emergency phone call in the middle of the night that you can’t put off until morning; your monthly income will wax and wane as projects come and go; and sometimes you might have trouble collecting your money on time.
  8. Be Assertive – Although you try to be flexible on most things, you must stand your ground on the things that matter — like getting paid and maintaining your integrity. You have to be willing to lose your client in order to defend your position in both of those cases.
  9. Be Honest – In the long run, it is always best to speak the truth. Your integrity is your most valuable asset; once you lose it, it’s hard to get back.
  10. Be Realistic – This one seems to conflict with the others, but it actually tempers the other nine traits. You have to realize that you can’t work 24/7. You must give yourself a life outside consulting, so you don’t burn out. You can’t start thinking about all your outside activities in terms of how much potential billable time they’re costing you. And you have to be willing to admit when you make a mistake or need someone’s help. You’re not Superman… you’re a consultant.

DAU Commercial Vendors

DAU Commercial Vendors

BCF 211 True or Not True?

  • BCF 211 No Longer Offered – Replaced by BCF 220 and BCF 225 (Direct posting from DAU News)
  • Due to a large number of failures in the pre-work portion of BCF 211, the course has been converted to two courses, BCF 220 (web) and BCF 225 (resident). Students will be required to successfully complete BCF 220 before a reservation in BCF 225 will be approved.

Maybe not at DAU, but Trio has BCF 211! We have the approved “Equivalent Course” as a commercial vendor. See for yourself on the DAU’s list of approved Commercial Vendors (.pdf).

 

Why tell you this? First, DAU is a government entity and prohibited (right now) from marketing Trio’s capability. Second, Trio can quickly respond to your needs, remote the course to your location (not the regional center), and we save you 25 man-hours per student (BCF 220). For example, 30 students * 25 hours = 750 total MH @ $75/MH = $56,250. That’s cost savings, not cost avoidance! Contact us today to register or learn more about our training courses.

 

8 Points on Leadership with University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban

Nick Saban

Nick Saban

Nicholas Lou “Nick” Saban (born October 31, 1951) is an American college football coach and the current head coach of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team. Saban previously served as head coach of the National Football League’s Miami Dolphins and three other NCAA universities: LSU, Michigan State, and Toledo. Saban appeared on the cover of Forbes magazine & as “The Most Powerful Coach in Sports”. Saban has more than 150 wins on his career record as a collegiate head coach. In March 2012, he became the highest-paid college football coach in the country, with a salary of $5.3 million that will jump to close to $6 million by 2019. There is already a statue of him on the campus. The Alabama football team rakes in $77 million in revenue a year. Much of that money pays for non-scholarship sports; $6.5 million goes to academic programs. The team has a $30 million deal with Nike, one of the largest in sports.

 

The best football coaches transform their teams into reflections of themselves. During Bama’s win over Michigan, it was apparent that Nick Saban had done just that with the Crimson Tide. Alabama gets the little things right. They are not flashy. They are disciplined. They rely on an almost NFL-caliber offensive line, good running backs, a mistake-free quarterback, and a hard-nosed defense. Like their coach, they never take their feet off the pedals. Saban expects much out of his players, regardless of the score of the game. Witness his sideline dress-downs of second and third-string players for blown assignments well after the outcome of the game had long been decided. When asked how he’s able to consistently win in the competitive sport of football, Nick Saban shared these eight points on leadership.

8 Points on Leadership:

Coach Nick Saban

Coach Nick Saban

1. You have to be willing to serve.

Great leaders are great servers. Every time I hear the term “servant leader,” I always think, “Well that’s redundant. Is there any other kind of leader?” Serving is what great leaders do, and it was something that was beat into our heads in leadership classes at the Naval Academy. This means shunning the Hollywood caricature of military-style leadership (you’ll follow my barked orders immediately if you want to keep your job!) and opting instead for real leadership through serving. Look out for the best interests of your people; give them the tools and the training they need to perform their best. Help them be successful in your system. When they win, you win.

2. You have to be willing to set an example.

This is one of the toughest things for a leader to embrace. If you want men and women of integrity working for you, you need to be a man or woman of integrity. If you want people to work hard, you need to work hard. If you want your team to give their best, their very best, you need to give your very best, and your employees know if you are or you aren’t. I’ve had enough conversations with junior people in organizations to know that your employees are finely-tuned hypocrisy detectors. Don’t ask your employees to do something or be something that you aren’t willing to embrace for yourself.

3. Inspire others by making an impact.

If you’re willing to set an example, then you can inspire others. “There’s a big difference between impressing your people and impacting your people,” Saban told me. “Impressing people is easy if that’s all you want to do.” If you want to make an impact and inspire others, your actions are paramount.

4. Focus on being your best, not on winning.

When asked about his focus on winning, Saban told us, “We don’t talk a lot about winning; instead, we talk a lot about being the best we can be.” One of the advantages of being focused on being your best, rather than on winning, is that being your best is the only thing you can really control. Your competition isn’t just going to roll over and surrender just because you are focused on winning. This scene from “Facing the Giants” is a great illustration of the concept. The other advantage of getting your employees to give you their best, instead of winning at all costs, is that it can help keep your team from making unethical choices.

5. Be positive.

There are a number of ways to motivate people, and one of them certainly is through fear (e.g. you’ll lose your job if you don’t perform), but Coach Saban prefers being positive. He told me that being positive is the best way to “help your people believe in what they can accomplish and give them something to strive for.” Note that I wrote “prefers being positive.” Saban was very clear that different people are motivated differently, so a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t always work out. “I have to take the time to understand each of my players and give them the push that they need,” he said. What do you think? Are you negative most of the time when it comes to motivating your employees (i.e. “you’ll work hard because you’ll lose your job if you don’t”). I’m not telling you to change your approach, but if knowing his people well and being positive has worked for Coach Saban, maybe it will work for you, too.

6. You can’t make people do things.

When I asked him about managing people, Saban said, “I don’t think you can manage people. You can’t manipulate people into being their very best. What we do is define our expectations for everyone on the team academically, athletically, and personally. If they meet those expectations, it will enhance things for them in the future. So, we hold every player accountable for meeting the expectations we have for them in those three areas.” If someone shows an unwillingness to meet those expectations, he won’t last on the team. Ultimately, Saban sets the structure in which he expects his team to operate and he provides direction. How each team member will perform is his own choice. In your business, you can do the same thing by setting performance objectives, and establishing the associated metrics, for each of your team members. If they meet or exceed those objectives, you’re on the road to bringing out the best out of your people. If they don’t, then you can either review the metrics to make sure they are the right ones, train your people to achieve them, or invite them to find a new position where they might excel (inside or outside the company).

7. Your team has to buy in to your vision.

Accomplishing something great through a team requires buy-in. “Your people have to buy in to what you are trying to accomplish,” Saban told me. “They need to embrace your dream, your vision.” He added: “You also can’t demand buy-in. You simply can’t force a person to buy in to your vision. Rather, you need to command buy-in through your actions and your example. You need to be someone your team can emulate.” It’s my experience that vision implementation, also known as a strategy, is poor in most companies. Visions are poorly crafted, even more poorly implemented, and little effort is invested into getting buy-in. This isn’t surprising, given the fact that most of the vision statements I have seen in my life were decidedly uninspiring. Saban confirmed, however, that a solid vision that everyone embraces can separate organizations that win from those that are mediocre. This isn’t as it easy as it sounds; the vision needs to be something that you earnestly want to achieve, and you need to be willing to go all-in to make it happen. If you don’t invest in it, if you don’t hire and fire based on it, and if you ever act in contradiction to it, you won’t achieve it. No one will believe that you really want it.

8. Caring is the most important thing.

Our final question referenced the movie “City Slickers“: When asked if he could share just one thing about successful leadership, what would it be? Without pausing, he said, “Caring. People don’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care.” There’s a risk that you may dismiss that as a simple slogan, but successful leadership always starts with caring about your people. What does that mean in practice? Perhaps it’s taking the time to get to know them better, or making the effort to have each employee feel like part of the team. Certainly it’s being responsive to requests associated with the quality of their tools, working environment and training needs. It also includes applying discipline and saying “no” to requests that are not good for the employee or the company.

Want to get better at leading your team to win? Embrace the eight points that Saban shared with me, and be a man or woman of great character, both on and off the field.

 

Despite Sequester, Agencies Continue Hiring Women-Owned Contractors

Despite Sequester, Agencies Continue Hiring Women-Owned Contractors

Despite Sequester, Agencies Continue Hiring Women-Owned Contractors

The Pentagon’s point woman for hiring women-owned small businesses said this week that she “needed a lift” from the travails of furloughs and sequestration.

 

“This is a tough time for the federal government and DoD in particular if you’re concerned about small businesses,” said Linda Oliver, deputy director of the Defense Department’s Office of Small Business Programs. “Our travel dollars have been cut to nonexistent, our training dollars cut. I’m not second guessing the decisions, but it’s kind of a down time.”

 

Speaking on Tuesday to hundreds of current and prospective contractors at the American Express Open’s annual summit, Oliver’s chief advice was to take advantage of the “debrief,” the optional meeting companies may request within three days of learning that they have been eliminated during a contract award process. “The debrief is not on the contracting officers’ list of fun things to do, since they fear they’re being set up for a bid protest,” she said. “But it’s really valuable and gives all involved perspective and closure,” she said.

 

In panels on how contracts can be won by small businesses qualified for set-asides under newly expanded thresholds for contract size, Tracey Pinson, a small business specialist at the Army Department, said the Army had awarded 4.5 percent of its contracts to women-owned small businesses, totaling $4 billion.

 

While awaiting revisions in the Federal Acquisition Regulation extending the program to larger contracts, Pinson’s team has been “educating its buying commands” on the value of female-owned product and service providers.

 

“I just came off of furlough,” she said. The aberration of sequestration has meant “the Army is not buying a lot of services through the operations and maintenance budget.” She added that “people are retiring left and right because they don’t like being furloughed, so [there’s a] need to educate more.”

 

Lisa Jenkins, a small business specialist at the Transportation Security Administration, said TSA has awarded 3.4 percent of contracts to women-owned small businesses, totaling $35 million. The agency is planning two industry days for March and November of 2014, she said, encouraging would-be contract winners to “ping me quarterly” with updates on their qualifications because “people feel comfortable with those who are frequent.”

 

Linda Waters, a small business specialist at the Health and Human Services Department, said her agency—the government’s second-largest in procurement, after Defense—has proudly exceeded its goals for women-owned businesses, with awards at 6.43 percent, worth $1.2 billion. HHS’ 10 upper divisions and 85,000 employees, she explained, manage 300 programs and let $18.5 billion in contracts annually.
