The 21-Day Habit Myth

August 8, 2018

There is a wide-spread myth that, unfortunately, many people have been duped into believing. It is the idea that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Like many myths, it started with good intent and that was to help people form new positive habits. The idea gave people hope that a habit could […]

Key Components of Change Management

July 31, 2018

Change management is challenging at best, and can be quite maddening for business leaders. I know, I’ve been through it several times. My clients have gone through it, or are in the process now. Change management is a process. There are some key components that help make the process less painful. (Notice, I didn’t say […]

“A” vs. “The”

July 19, 2018

A mentor and instructor of mine during his training sessions often discusses his methodology for preparing speeches and trainings. Almost every time, someone in the room asks him to give a detailed account of his process. He does. Then they go off and try to duplicate his process. Inevitably, that person comes back later and […]

When Facial Expressions Lie

July 11, 2018

Most of the time we do well with accurately interpreting facial expressions. But, according to recent research, when emotions run high, our ability to correctly interpret facial expressions decreases. Thus, we make inaccurate judgments about what others are feeling and thinking. As emotional energy intensifies (negative or positive), context becomes critically important. It is the […]

Do One Thing and Do It Better Than Anyone Else: 4 Questions to Ask Yourself

July 3, 2018

It’s easy to compare ourselves to athletes, celebrities, authors — even experts in our respective fields. Because they’re at the top of their game, it seems natural to assume those who accomplish great things were born to be extraordinary. That achieving greatness was somehow pre-destined for them. Yet, we’re all unique and we’re all wired […]

Customer Vendor Service

June 13, 2018

When we experience great customer service and poor customer service, we are reminded of the value of great customer service. Yes, customer service is important. But, what about the other way around? What about vendor service? Just the other day I was meeting with one of my vendors. Before we got started on why I […]

Lessons from a Bag of Cat Food

February 27, 2018

The wrong assumptions lead to wrong conclusions. We know that. The key is to remember that we know that and to actively question our assumptions. I forgot this and starved my cat in the process. He forgave me and is doing well. About a week ago I noticed that my cat wasn’t eating as much […]

The Missing Key For Organizational Success

November 16, 2017

For an organization to be successful it must have a compelling vision that people buy into, and there must be a healthy culture. Vision is critical. Culture is critical. But, there is something else that is just as critical. And that is unity. Unity. Not alignment. Alignment is a piece of unity. Unity is bigger. […]

Comfort vs Discomfort

October 10, 2017

This is how Wikipedia defines comfort: Comfort (or being comfortable) is a sense of physical or psychological ease, often characterized as a lack of hardship. Persons who are lacking in comfort are uncomfortable, or experiencing discomfort. People who are uncomfortable are lacking. Um, no. It is the people who are comfortable who are lacking. Let […]

The Misinterpretation of ‘Massive Action’

October 5, 2017

We’ve all heard if before, “Just take massive action, the results will happen.” People then run out and start doing lots of whatever it is they are doing. Sometimes great results happen and sometimes they don’t. Why? Why does ‘massive action’ not always produce great results? It is because we sometimes misinterpret the phrase ‘massive […]
