  • The best outline for an executive presentation

    9 Dec 2014 | 12:02 pm
    What is the best approach? “What is the most effective format for a compelling, persuasive presentation to executives?” This question came up during my last Coaching Hour for members of Azzarello Group, and as we talked about it, I thought it was worth sharing on the blog. There are two key elements for a successful presentation: 1. It must be brief and highly relevant! 2. It must be delivered well You need to prepare for both the content and the delivery of your presentation. Too many times I see people investing a huge amount of preparation time into the content, but not giving…

    When people ask, “how do you find the time to read so many books?” When people ask, “how do you find the time to read so many books?” A question that I get asked all the time, is “How do you find the time to read so many books?” Because I view reading as one of life’s simple pleasures, I indulge myself all the time. And I would think it would be the same thing for those who enjoy doing other things. I do not while the time away reading books all day, I do have to work on projects because the bills have to be paid. Besides reading because it gives me pleasure, I also read for…

  • Elon Musk Uses This Ancient Critical-Thinking Strategy To Outsmart Everybody Else

    Stephen D. Milton
    12 Jan 2015 | 11:00 am
    Before he was a world-changing entrepreneur, Elon Musk was on track to become a physicist — even starting an applied physics Ph.D. at Stanford University. But while he dropped out of the program after only a few days, the field left an impression on the billionaire-to-be. Perhaps most crucially, it trained him in “first principles thinking,” a mode of inquiry that relentlessly pursues the foundations of a problem. “I think it’s important to reason from first principles rather than by analogy,” Musk said in an interview with Kevin Rose. “The normal way we…

    You can figure out how you fit into the puzzle of life, of you can just live your life and assume that your piece already fits in. My mom had both. When mom retired, as far as I could see, she was able to lift her own puzzle piece from its’ spot and move it deliberately into the spot it was meant to be in. It wasn’t squeezed into the space that the universe had chosen, but instead, placed in her life with perfectly balanced happiness. I listened to her stories about going to the gym, like she used to listen to my high school days. Quietly engaging, without saying much, yet finding…

We have been surrounded by the possibilities of New Year’s Resolutions and with most of them already broken, we realise that taking action is not as easy as we sometimes perceive it to be.

    Izzy Justice

    This time of the year is quite popular for crafting life, career, and health goals. Media is replete with ads catering to this annual ritual. One popular activity is to do a nutritional Detox or a Cleanse. I am not qualified to evaluate these but they do trigger a different kind of cleanse that is relatively new. I do it many times a year and recommend it you. I call it a Media Cleanse. I heard a comic joke recently about the outrage some people have over the violence, nudity, and vulgarity that comes from the movies they pay to watch. It took a few seconds for the audience to appreciate the…

  • Coach or be Coached

    Izzy Justice
    1 Dec 2014 | 10:43 am
    Everyone has the capacity to coach someone else at something – whether it is coaching kids in a sport, an after school program, friends, family, neighbors, people that you work with or those that work for you. There is a skill set or knowledge you have acquired that someone else could benefit from. There are many benevolent reasons why this can be both personally rewarding as well as having a positive impact to the recipient – coachee. If that is not enough reason, then consider a much more self-serving one – it will make you better at just about everything you want to do.

    When I ask anyone if they are smarter now than they were five years ago, the answer is always “yes!” I am told that the reason is that in the past five years via all kinds of life experiences and training, they have learned a great deal. Alrighty then. Where do you store all that you have learned – not just in the past five years but the past 10 or 20 years? If your answer to this question is “my brain” – then know that you have greatly diluted the value of the very experiences and learning you have earned.

    We’ve all been trained to ask the typical questions in our businesses and lives. Who, what, when, where, and how are the traditional areas to explore. Recently I’ve learned that these questions aren’t the best approach to opening our conscious minds and fueling innovation and creative thinking. Why?  These traditional questions tend to focus on the context of a specific thing in the present or past. A better question is, “What if?”  The difference is that when we ask, “What if,” we tend to focus on a possibility yet to be discovered. Since I’m…

    Sometimes its hard to lead change. That’s because we humans don’t like change. Why? Because our minds seek to protect us from threats.

Learning to lead change around these instincts and programs fuels our ability to create an organization that adapts and innovates.  Here’s how to do just that.

When we reach the status of expert, we enjoy sharing our lessons and insights with all who need them. We mentor the next generation by sharing our expertise and perspectives.

Did you know that our unconscious mind is filling in gaps in our experiences and memories, all the time? So that vivid experience you recall may or may not be what actually happened? We fill in the gaps in our vision, hearing, memories and perceptions, in every moment of every day. Which is why our memories aren’t trustworthy, or accurate for that matter.

    Ignorance may be bliss, but it’s deadly to leadership effectiveness. And it’s often the mark of a blind and weak leader. Feedback-impaired leaders often mistake compliance for commitment. They might, for example, proclaim an open door policy and when no one enters their office to raise problems, believe there aren’t any serious issues to be addressed. Or when their strong position and lack of approachability shuts down any serious debate on a key meeting topic, they’ll take that as agreement and push ahead. Later they’re puzzled by lack of follow through. Not…

    We once worked with an organization where “coaching” was a term that meant reprimand. When a manager said to a team member “I’d like to give you some coaching” it created fear and anxiety.

That’s because of mounting evidence showing that coaching effectiveness dramatically improves employee engagement, levels of customer satisfaction, productivity, safety, and profitability while reducing turnover, absenteeism, and costs. Coaching skills have an especially vital impact on “volunteerism.” This is the discretionary effort that goes well above and beyond basic job requirements.

  • Do Not Let Fear Limit Your Executive Presence

    Diane Craig
    13 Jan 2015 | 8:12 am
    “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt What do you think you could accomplish if you simply let go of your fears? Fear influences all of our choices and decisions, and often limits us where we most want to succeed. However, when we stop and take a good look at our fears, we often find that what is behind them is not so perilous after all. If you want to develop your Executive Presence, you must address your fears and work through them. After all, Executive Presence is built on a strong foundation of confidence and strength in trying moments. And just as…
  • Your Selfie, Your Professional Self

    Diane Craig
    6 Jan 2015 | 1:56 pm
    How much information do you share about yourself online? On your personal Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts, how large of a window do you let into your life? Posting personal photos and updates on social media is nothing new or unusual. If you do it, you are among millions of other users worldwide who share some elements of their private lives on a public platform. When this becomes an issue, however, is if the presentation of yourself on social media – whether through group photos, self-taken images or “selfies,” or written posts – is vastly different from…
  • Start Fresh in the New Year

    Diane Craig
    29 Dec 2014 | 7:36 am
    It may sound cliché to promote the New Year as a time for new beginnings, but there are many good reasons that January 1st can be an excellent moment for a fresh start in your professional life. Not only is it the start of a new calendar year, but also many businesses start their new fiscal year, the holiday rush is finally over, and new projects and initiatives frequently begin at this time. With the start of a new year, it is best to begin with a fresh frame of mind. Here are a few steps you can take to start 2015 off right. Outline your professional goals for the year. Take time for…
  • How to Handle Difficult Colleagues

    Diane Craig
    11 Dec 2014 | 8:28 am
    No matter where you work, it is a certainty that you will have to work with a difficult co-worker at some point in your career. In fact, you may have met him or her already: a difficult colleague can be someone who complains constantly, does not contribute equally, is always ready to start an argument, or even engages in bullying. In many circumstances, it can be hard to know the right thing to say or do in response to someone whose behaviour is uncooperative and irrational. However, there are a few responses you can rely on that will make the situation easier to handle in many contexts.

  • In Search of Authentic Leaders

    Patsi Krakoff
    22 Jan 2015 | 6:21 am
    Authenticity has become the gold standard for leadership. But a simplistic understanding of what it means can hinder your growth and limit your impact. ~ Herminia Ibarra, The Authenticity Paradox, Harvard Business Review, January 2015 Employees at all organizational levels seek meaning and fulfillment at work. Most are willing to work hard for authentic, trustworthy leaders. People are not easily fooled or quick to offer their loyalty, which explains why inauthentic leaders struggle to hire and retain exceptional staffers. Unmotivated direct reports often “phone it in” each day. Authentic…
  • In Praise of Leadership Humility

    Patsi Krakoff
    7 Jan 2015 | 4:39 am
    The attribute of leadership humility is not often celebrated in performance reviews, nor is it a part of leadership development programs. Maybe it should be. We live in an era of self-celebration, and bravado announces our confidence. At work, ambitious people enthusiastically self-promote in order to be singled out for promotion and stretch positions. Yet as professor of business psychology Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic says, “Bluster and the alpha instinct often get mistaken for ability and effectiveness.” We have a large volume of evidence about the perils of hubris and, consequently,…
  • The Under-Management Epidemic

    Patsi Krakoff
    23 Dec 2014 | 5:38 am
    Are you part of the under management epidemic, or are you a truly engaged manager? A recent survey reports 9 out of 10 managers are providing insufficient oversight—a problem that consultant Bruce Tulgan calls the “under-management epidemic.” Ten years ago, research from Rainmaker Thinking, Inc., confirmed an epidemic of workplace under-management. The firm’s ongoing study reveals that under-managing remains rampant. A full 90% of all leaders and managers do not provide direct reports with sufficient guidance, support and coaching. Under-managing occurs when leaders with supervisory…

    Patsi Krakoff
    28 Nov 2014 | 7:18 am
    Few of us wake up in the morning with the intention of being a hero. Instead, we hope to get by without any major stumbling blocks and aim to do what is expected of us. It’s only when confronted with obstacles that threaten to derail our routines and plans that we don the armor and go into battle. As they say, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Here’s something to think about: What if we’re missing opportunities to get what we want  ̶  and help others get what they want  ̶  by not seeing the obstacles early enough? Successful people don’t limit their…
  • Motivate without Over-Managing

    Patsi Krakoff
    17 Nov 2014 | 5:46 am
    Many business leaders have lost sight of what motivates people at work. In fact, some companies haven’t updated their incentive practices in years, which means they’re probably struggling to create and sustain high-performing teams. Companies continue to ignore the obvious: Offering incentives and rewards is less effective than tapping into truly meaningful intrinsic motivation. Leaders operate on old assumptions about motivation despite a wealth of well-documented scientific evidence. The old “carrot-and-stick” mentality actually inhibits employees from seeking creative solutions,…

    Suzi Pomerantz
    16 Dec 2014 | 7:57 pm
    Guest post by Dr. Mark McKergow and Helen Bailey The New Year can often bring about plenty of opportunities for change in the workplace, offering a chance for new beginnings and fresh starts, with colleagues feeling revitalised and reinvigorated after the winter break. This year, managers should use the transition into 2015 as an opportunity to introduce the notion of Host Leadership, and welcome with it the idea of using roles instead of rules. ‘Rules’ are things you have to follow all the time. ‘Roles’, on the other hand, are about stepping forward in different ways and changing our…

But for now, I want to address the concern that many people have which is that getting a mentor is a difficult and awkward thing to accomplish.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Have many informal mentors Start thinking of…

    What is the best approach? “What is the most effective format for a compelling, persuasive presentation to executives?” This question came up during my last Coaching Hour for members of Azzarello Group, and as we talked about it, I thought it was worth sharing on the blog. There are two key elements for a successful presentation: 1. It must be brief and highly relevant! 2. It must be delivered well You need to prepare for both the content and the delivery of your presentation. Too many times I see people investing a huge amount of preparation time into the content, but not giving…

What I mean by this is simply that: I have way more fun, when I make time on purpose to have fun. The on-purpose part is important because the annoying things and the non-optional responsibilities in life have a way using up all your time if you don’t fight back. The big aha is this: The annoying stuff and the responsibilities assert themselves. They demand to be done — The…

    The beginning of the New Year often brings motivation for change. I see it at the gym, that’s for sure. For the first few weeks of January, it’s always more crowded than usual. Then, the crowds seem to thin out. Usually, by early February, attendance is back to normal. Has everyone met their health and fitness objectives for the year in just a few weeks? Nope. Mostly, for whatever reason, they just have lost their motivation to follow through on their goal of getting into better shape. It’s not uncommon. However, I have noticed that those who work out with […]

Resolutions usually focus on actions – doing more or less of something. To achieve real change, we must recognize and understand the reasons for the actions and change ourselves from the core. We must not only know what we want – we have to have a plan to get there. We need to have a clear vision of what we’re going to create. We need to understand why we […]

    I lost my phone while on vacation recently. Somewhere on Heavenly Mountain in Lake Tahoe there’s a phone buried deep under the snow below the chair lift. Seems like bad news right? When I told people, many of them reached for their pockets and purses just to caress their own phones in an effort to reassure themselves that they didn’t lose their phone. Calm down people. Take some deep breathes. This is my story, not yours. And don’t worry, it has a happy ending. It was time for the coach to do some self-coaching. I learned some pretty beautiful lessons by losing that device.

    Have you ever worked for a jerk? How about a boss you loved, respected, admired? Who did you perform better for? We all do better work for someone we trust, admire, respect. And yet, if you took a poll of critical business skills, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a list that didn’t include vision, leadership, drive, ambition, or intellect. You’d be equally hard pressed to find one that included, much less led with, generosity. That generosity is important and valued isn’t news—but the #1 key to success? That’s not where it usually lands. Generosity is more typically an…

    It’s the new year. And like the year before it will pass by sooner than you believe. That’s a good thing really. You do not want to be in a phase of life or work where every day seems drawn out.

Is it going to be same old battle or do you seek the key secrets of getting yourself headhunted to greener pastures? Well, who knows what may come up, right?
