Planning Versus Thinking Through

November 5, 2018

This past weekend, the NFL New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams played each other. (If you are reading this in the future, the principle is still relevant.) The Saints were up by 3 points midway through the 4th quarter. That’s not a comfortable lead against the high scoring Rams. Looking for more points, […]

The Destructive Power of Sowing Strife

October 10, 2018

Susan was a star performer who had been with the company for many years. Susan was always early and one of the last to leave. Rarely did she take a day off that wasn’t scheduled vacation. Susan was the best producer in the department. Every performance review was stellar. The company leadership would say, “If […]

Reframe The Small Things

September 28, 2018

How we frame, that is, perceive things is something we have control over. We can’t change the event or circumstances. We can change how we frame them. When we are conscious to reframe the small things, we prepare ourselves to be more able to reframe the big things. I have a real estate project under […]

The Four Types of Habit Change

August 27, 2018

Not everyone is wired the same. We think differently, have different perspectives and have different ways we go about doing things. When it comes to changing habits, not everyone does it the same way. The way the works for me might not work for you. Finding the right method is key to successful habit change. […]

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 […]
