14 Strategies For Ensuring Personal Biases Don't Affect Your Business Relationships

Isolate Facts From Personal Opinion

One time-tested method is to isolate the relevant and specific facts from personal opinion. The most significant hurdle is to consciously put a barrier between personal beliefs and experiences in a way that still allows you to draw on your expertise, but tailor it to the specific client. You can test that by asking yourself if you would give the same advice to another client. - Kamyar ShahWorld Consulting Group

13 Methods For Maintaining Your Company Culture When Leadership Changes

Maintain A Feedback Loop
There is no better way to get ahead of cultural shifts within the organization then maintaining a feedback loop from bottom to top. The impact of departing leaders is likely to be felt on the front lines first. Enabling those employees to voice their observations and/or shifts in culture can serve as an early warning sign that can be dealt with before it becomes an issue.

14 Ways To Establish Yourself As A New Leader In Business

Be In A Student Mindset
The most viable way to illustrate leadership is to show a student mindset. In a new organization, there are many things that are unknown to a new leader. It is important to show that you as a leader want to understand and learn those things before expecting to be taken seriously as a leader. Combine that with seeking advice from current leadership and you have a winning combination. - Kamyar ShahWorld Consulting Group

14 Ways For Business Leaders To Build Team Cohesion

Create A Necessity
From a practical standpoint, it is all about creating a “necessity.” Human behavior is most likely to adapt when changes are a matter of survival. The most effective method I have seen work is to create that necessity. Put those that you perceive as not trusting each other into a team and define the project success in a way that forces trust building. - Kamyar ShahWorld Consulting Group

15 Strategies For Turning A Lackluster Brand Around

Build Your Personal Brand
Though it may sound counterintuitive, I recommend my clients build their personal brand to help their business brand. The logic and success behind such an approach are because of the way we relate to brands. A well-recognized personal brand can easily transfer credibility and loyalty to a business brand. It is the same reason why influencer marketing works so well. - Kamyar ShahWorld Consulting Group

14 Common Pitfalls New Entrepreneurs Face And How To Avoid Them

Fake Expertise 
One of the biggest pitfalls I have observed in entrepreneurship is the ability to get actionable and real advice. To get there, one has to be able to discern real and practical advice from fake and useless "experts" or "ninjas." This is easier said than done. The only true way to avoid that is to get referrals from people that have successfully utilized such experts. - Kamyar Shah, World Consulting Group
