Hey, Got a Minute?

Hey, Got a Minute?

I saw a great sign once at the Social Security office in Massachusetts. It said,

“Only have a quick question? So does everyone else. Go to the back of the line!”

It wasn’t great customer service perhaps, but if you are the one everyone comes to asking, “Hey got a minute for a quick question?” I bet you wish you could have this sign over your desk!

Hot Button Issues – Fascinating!

Hot Button Issues – Fascinating!

I was recently listening to someone share a hot button issue for them, a specific customer scenario that really got under her skin. As she described it, the tension in the room escalated. This person became so animated when describing the past situation that she became red faced with frustration. And because emotions spread like viruses, others in the room started getting tense.

Finding The Guru Within

Finding The Guru Within

About 3 years ago I thought I found my business guru, the person who was going to help me turn all my gifts and talents into the “6 figure business” I desired, while only working a few hours a day. She had a system. All I had to do was believe in myself enough to pay her money and follow her advice. If I believed and followed well enough, I too could have a beach house, a Tesla, and all the vacation time I wanted.

Is Your Team Held Together With Crazy Glue?

Is Your Team Held Together With Crazy Glue?

For nearly 13 years I had a job that I could not leave. The work was satisfying. I was recognized for my effort. But the pay wasn’t great. In fact, the organization was struggling, and in the last half-dozen or so years of my employment there, my salary decreased each year. Every employee would work harder than the year before as we’d try to keep the doors open, and each year we’d receive word that we’d have to take a furlough week or two—essentially an unpaid vacation. The promised retirement account sat unfunded. Emails would circulate at year-end stating how the leadership team had taken pay cuts and letting us know that health insurance contribution would increase, and there’d be no raises. And yet almost no one left.

Joy At Work – Creating Your Own Culture

Joy At Work – Creating Your Own Culture

I had coffee with an acquaintance who also is a therapist. She was sharing how she sees more and more clients who are stuck in their work and how their inability to leave causes them to go into survival mode, resentfully counting the days until retirement. This stress of feeling stuck professionally wreaks havoc in many other areas of their lives, including physical and emotional well being and the ability to foster and maintain fulfilling relationships. Living in survival mode causes them to come up with strategies to cope, many of which may be considered passive aggressive or manipulative.

Do You Allow Your Light to Shine?

Do You Allow Your Light to Shine?

 

One of the questions you may often get from people is why you decided to follow a certain path in life, why you chose a particular business or profession to pursue – or perhaps why you decided to change gears and reinvent yourself at some point in your life.

In the radio and TV interviews I have been doing lately, I get this question a lot.

Why am so passionately committed to helping people unleash their unique and authentic voice and gain confidence and ease in speaking in public, so that they can realize their full potential and live a rewarding life full of true meaning?

2 GREAT LEAPS FORWARD

2 GREAT LEAPS FORWARD

In the bad old days of the former Soviet Union, that government periodically announced, with great fanfare, a new Five Year Plan that was to result in what it called A Great Leap Forward. The idea was to shore up (yet again) the faltering Soviet economy, usually through a variety of repressive and draconian measures that always fell far short of the stated goals of the plan.

Fortunately there is another type of Great Leap Forward. It can occur after a period of gestation, of persistent preparation and work behind the scenes that enables a break-out event or series of events to burst into public view.

Are You the Kind of Speaker You Want to Be?

Are You the Kind of Speaker You Want to Be?

When we talk about the fear of public speaking, the first thing that comes to mind is getting up on a stage and giving a formal speech of some kind.

However, there are many other times in the course of business and in our everyday lives that we have to speak in public.

2 Reasons Why Setting Goals Can Be Tricky

2 Reasons Why Setting Goals Can Be Tricky

Goals are both admirable and tricky.

They are admirable because they enable us to set our sights upon something worthwhile that can bring value both to ourselves and to others.

All great accomplishments come as the result of striving toward targets that are initially beyond the reach of those who set goals for themselves and/or for their organizations.
