    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,…

    Is it time for a new challenge? Then, well, take a look at the graphic below…  It may not necessarily be the exact same in your industry, but you if are just a successful “Online acquisition manager” or a “Senior Specialist”  in a certain industry and dream to get even close to the top of the food chain, do you know how far you still have to work your way up? Looks pretty daunting at times, right? But it does not need to be so. Because no matter how high you have set your goals (yes, also a Product Director with a completely balanced and happy life), it is…

    Working in the coaching community, I am exposed to lots, and I mean lots, of tremendously talented people. People who motivate. People who inspire. People who are so full of energy it radiates out of them and is absorbed by others. They come from as varied backgrounds as one can imagine. From business executives to cancer survivors and actors to policemen (I was going to say “actors to zoologists” for the A to Z effect, but I honestly don’t know any zoologists) and anywhere in between, they all have one thing in common: they not only have great attitudes about […]

    NLP eye patterns, or “Eye Accessing” as NLPers call them, are taught in the basic NLP Practitioner class. It gives you insight as to what people are doing inside their head. Not so much what someone is thinking, but HOW someone is thinking. Not every person follows the same pattern, but there is a common NLP eyes pattern. NLP Eye Patterns as you face the client: 1. Eyes go up and to the right: a person sees a visually remembered image (something they have seen before) 2.

  • Time For Recruitment Professionals To Look At Their Own Careers

    rsargeant
    4 Nov 2014 | 6:21 am
    I spent some time speaking with a person who specializes in Mergers and Acquisitions of Staffing and Recruiting Firms. He shared with me the recent trend in valuing a firm is to look beyond the executive team, beyond the client base and beyond the candidate pool. The valuation is coming down to the Recruitment Team itself. When an organization has one or more Recruitment Professionals filling orders, that more valuable than a multimillion dollar client list. This makes any and all Recruitment Professionals a very important, if not the most important asset to a third party agency. After…

    I recently have had people say to me, “When I retire, I’ll be able to do……….” They are putting off doing things because they feel they do not have the time now, or enough money, or, or, or.  They are focused on a particular time when they perceive life will be better. I believe we let this type of thinking infect us in our work life as well. When the economy improves business will be better.  After the next election, things will be better.  There won’t be any jobs until the kids return to school.  I can’t get a better job until I get more education.  When the business…

    Focusing on time management can lead to a more productive and happier workforce. Successful businesses usually translate to busy executives, managers and employees. Taking advantage of optimization services like breakthrough consulting can provide major benefits for companies, and some simple time management advice can also help out workers. A recent article from Entrepreneur magazine pointed out that immediate urgency and long-term importance are very different concepts that often operate at cross purposes. Short-term decisions made to the benefit of current deadlines and goals can…

  • Where do you store your learning?

    Izzy Justice
    10 Nov 2014 | 7:29 am
    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. I was sitting in the office of a senior executive…
  • Power of Past & Future … not just Now

    Izzy Justice
    3 Nov 2014 | 9:20 am
    Recently I had a healthy exchange with a good friend on the topic of happiness. She leveraged the Eckhart Tolle premise of happiness being only in the “now” – the present, and as such, not dwelling in the past or worrying about the future. I have had several issues with this premise for many years despite being a fan of Tolle. First, the idea of being present in every moment (the now) is indeed a powerful one. Though most think of it philosophically or spiritually, there is in fact neuroscience that can support this. To be present in the now requires a very high degree of…

    The topic of courage has been explored for perhaps centuries.  It would appear there really is not much more to uncover. We all know what it is, why it is important, and have no problem recognizing it when we see it. Yet, I wonder how many of you have ever been asked this question: “How courageous are you?” How many of you have ever verbally answered that question to an audience? How many of you have asked that question directly to someone else? How many of you know how to answer that question? For a character attribute that is associated with the ability to overcome challenges,…
  • Start-Stop VS Increase-Decrease

    Izzy Justice
    6 Oct 2014 | 7:07 am
    In coaching executives and athletes, I have come to learn that any change, especially behavioral change, is just hard. Establishing the case for change is relatively easy as is finding the right plan and tools to make the change. But then to actually do it (change) and maintain it, is where old habits tend to win over desired new ones. So here is a better way to make change (improvements for yourself) an achievable endeavor in a sustainable manner. We can achieve improvement by either stopping a bad habit or by starting a new one. For example, most people know smoking is bad and stopping…

For those not familiar with the race, it is a 2.4 mile swim in the Tennessee river, following by 116 miles (4 more than normal) of a bike ride across Tennesee and Georgia, and then a 26.2 mile run (marathon) in the downtown Chattanooga district. All of this starts around 740AM on Sunday September 28th, and has to be completed by midnight. The central premise of my last book (www.triathleteq.com) was that these endurance events are as much an emotional endurance test as they are a physical endurance test. How might this…

    I Robot by Isaac Asimov, Book Review I, Robot by Isaac Asimov, Book Review A friend once told me that she is scared to read science fiction. She is scared because sci-fi often predicts certain scientific developments, which she doesn’t want to learn about. For her, some of those predictions may be scary, and she thinks that she is better off not knowing. In I Robot, and the other robot stories in the series, Isaac Asimov predicts certain real developments in the field of robotics. A point worth noting, is that Karel Čapek, a prolific Czech writer, introduced the word robot in his play, R.

He was born into an educated family, his father was a physician and his mother a nurse. Because of their influence, he developed an interest in science and engineering, and coupled with his intelligence, he won a scholarship to Oxford University where he started to write poetry. Although he had a natural intelligence, Auden did not perform very well while he was at Oxford. The poet was friends with other writers and…

    Have you noticed how often we’re triggered into fear? Every where we look there’s a new disease we need meds to fight, new enemies we need to fear, new potential business disasters if we don’t buy something..  Then there’s the fear-mongering media – but that’s another rant. Back to sales and marketing… Lately, clients have been asking me about the sales “experts “who claim that a powerful way to control a buyer’s mind is to create fear, to trigger our reptile or lizard brain.  Some are claiming we can use power of the amygdala…

    We’ve all been taught that standard sales processes are key to great sales.  Heck, over two plus decades of consulting, I’ve created hundreds of those standard sales approaches. I thought they were critical for my clients’ success. Today, I  understand why they just don’t work. Here’s what neuroscience taught me. Standard sales processes are designed to communicate the way we prefer to communicate, to share what we think is important, in the order and manner that we think works. We’re designing what we think works. Neuroscience has now proven that every…
  • How Neuroscience Empowers HR and Leaders to Tackle Turnover

    We all know that employee turnover is costly.  We lose valuable knowledge and skills even as we pay to recruit, hire and train replacements.  New estimates show that turnover results in costs that exceed 150% of the employee’s salary. That’s a big number in any business. Turnover results from  a resignation or a firing. In the former, we’re facing an employee who is disengaged, demotivated and dissatisfied enough to leave the business. All too often, “problem” employees are facing the same issues, demonstrated as poor productivity and results. Why Traditional…
  • 3 Ways to Shift from Idle to Ideal

    We’ve all heard that “idle minds are the devil’s workshop.” A recent discovery in neuroscience  demonstrated what happens with our idle minds. It looks like the old saying is, well, kinda true. Here’s the quick scoop: In a study at the University of Virginia, subjects were placed alone in rooms and told to sit still and do nothing but think – for a time ranging from  6 to 15 minutes. Simple right? Prior to the idle time, they were each given a mild electric shock, then told they could shock themselves during their idle time if they wanted. By the way, the…

    Jim Clemmer
    13 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    As I wrote in “Perceptions Are a Leader’s Reality” a leader’s impact on others is dramatically increased by the presence of a few towering strengths or sharply reduced by one or two glaring weaknesses. This halo or horns effect was first documented with empirical research by Edward Thorndike, an early 20th century pioneering American psychologist. Based on his research asking commanding officers to rate their soldiers he found there was “a marked tendency to think of the person in general as rather good or rather inferior and color the judgments of the qualities…

    During one of my workshops we were discussing keys to building responsibility and ownership. One participant told us that he and his wife had their four year old grandson, Tyler, stay overnight at their house. In the morning he came running down the stairs and reported, “Grandma, Grandpa, somebody peed in my bed!” Kids will often avoid taking responsibility for their behaviors — especially if they fear punishment or ridicule. This often extends into young siblings or classmates playing “the blame game” as they point fingers at others to avoid being seen as the…

    How do I start an NLP coaching session? This actually starts before I am even seeing or talking to my client. Step 1: What information do I have prior to the NLP coaching session? I go over any information or notes I may have, whether they are my notes from a previous session, any information I personally know about the client, or googling the client’s place of work (especially in NLP coaching for business.) I make notes about these; these are are not long pieces of text, as that becomes a pain. These are often small notes that I can easily access during the coaching. Step…

    Leading a group project or team initiative is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your leadership and management skills. However, little is more frustrating than when team members do not contribute equally to the task at hand. Uncooperative group members may not complete their work on time, refrain from participating in group meetings, or approach work with a negative attitude. While unequal contributions from team members make projects unnecessarily difficult, this behaviour occurs more often than you may think. Such behaviour can hinder the success of a project – both the process and…

During these dark and cold months, many people feel less energetic and motivated, which can affect quality of work and productivity in the workplace. Yet in business, attitude is everything. How you approach your work, how you interact with your colleagues, or how you view your own professional path: a positive attitude is important in all of these aspects of a career. How, then, can you maintain a bright and sunny attitude, even when the sun sets far…

Maintaining such control in the face of the unexpected will allow your Executive Presence to shine through on a regular basis. Here are three…

  • Common Email Etiquette Mistakes and the Importance of Digital Protocol

    Diane Craig
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:29 am
    Professionals today constantly communicate via email. In some cases, it is the primary means of contact and exchange. Yet because email facilitates both casual communications among friends and formal communications in the workplace, sometimes that distinction can become blurred – and professional communications take on a too-casual tone. In the workplace, it is important to have clearly defined protocol that supports professional, well-crafted emails that protect the image of the sender and his or her company. To some readers this may be obvious, but the mistakes outlined in this blog still…

    Recntly, I did an interview for NPR called Paintballing The Boss: Office Team-Building Exercises Gone Bad. While I shared a lot of team building tips with the interviewer, only one small part of what I said made it to air. None of the activities mentioned in the NPR programme or so far in this blog post represent real team building. Yet, a lot of what was discussed is being passed off as "corporate team building". In fact, it's not team building. It's team fun at best or team frivolity. Here is how to avoid team building gone wrong.

  • 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,…
  • Do You Know Yourself Well?

    3 Nov 2014 | 2:23 pm
    How well do you think you know yourself? Self-awareness is key to success in work, life, and relationships. “Knowing yourself, and knowing the forces that affect the people who work for you, holds the key to being a successful leader.” ~ Kenneth M. Settel, MD, Clinical Instructor in Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, CEO Psychology: Who Rises, Who Falls and Why (RosettaBooks, 2012) Many of us know our character strengths, and over time have worked to develop them. At the same time, not being cognizant of our weaknesses can blindside our success. The very character traits that peg you as…
  • Leading with Trust: Principles and Practice

    Patsi Krakoff
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:34 am
    Despite the importance of building relationship trust, few leaders give it the focus it deserves. Misunderstood as a nebulous “feeling,” trust is earned through consistent, positive behaviors practiced over time, making it an indispensable leadership skill. Roughly half of all managers don’t trust their leaders, according to a Golin Harris survey of 450 executives at 30 global companies. In a 2011 Maritz survey, out of more than 90,000 employees worldwide, only seven percent say they trust their senior leaders to look out for their best interests. A Watson Wyatt Worldwide study of…
  • Your Personal Presence: Appearances Matter

    Patsi Krakoff
    10 Oct 2014 | 5:28 am
    How much time and attention do you give to your wardrobe and appearance? It’s often the little things that count. Like it or not, first impressions matter. Remember Malcolm Gladwell’s blockbuster book Blink, back in 2007? The author stresses how quickly we decide to like or dislike someone. Our brains size up people in less than 250 milliseconds. While character and communication skills are key, you won’t influence the people you wish to if your appearance telegraphs that you’re clueless. Whether you’re an executive up for promotion, an employee seeking more responsibilities, or a…

    Aligning your subconscious mind with your conscious intentions will allow you, as a leader, to manifest your goals and objectives more quickly, effectively, and easily. Do you know how often your subconscious works in opposition to your conscious intent?  Clean that up! Dr. Cathy Collautt shows you how in this great interview of her on MarieTV.  Below the video you can find my favorite quotes from this very powerful talk on how to fully deploy your most powerful asset! From the transcript: Dr. Cathy is amazingly smart (she’s an Oxford grad) but she is a metaphysician and manifesting…

    Suzi Pomerantz
    7 Oct 2014 | 1:32 pm
      One of the things I know for sure about leadership is that leaders control the weather. If you’ve ever worked in a setting where the first question everyone asks each other in the morning is “What kind of mood is he (or she) in today?” then you know the truth of that statement. The answer to that first thing in the morning question determines the kind of day everyone has ahead of them and, consequently, the quality of the work that gets done. If the leader is sunny and bright, then it’s going to be a good day; if the leader is stormy and cloudy then everyone better buckle up…

    Schedule what is important to you In getting ready for this month’s webinar on Managing Your Own Performance, I recalled a small epiphany I had many years ago: Time management is the key to happiness. 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…
  • Execution is not beneath you

    Patty Azzarello
    10 Nov 2014 | 1:50 pm
    The problem For years I have been trying to figure out why so many leaders tolerate poor execution and do nothing about it. One unfortunate issue I see quite regularly is simply that some “big” executives seem to believe that execution is beneath them. They view execution as a low level job for other, less important, less strategic people to deal with. Above it all This “above it all” approach is dangerous. When your involvement stops with the vision and the talking part, your organization can not possibly automatically self optimize to make your strategy happen.

The world is full of people who will try and make you feel small. These can be friends, colleagues, bosses, teachers, partners…They are out there and we all encounter them. When you come across people who need to exert their power over you with dismissive and diminishing behaviors you need to recognize, that as with all bullying, it is always about them, and never about you.

    Patty Azzarello
    13 Oct 2014 | 11:41 am
    Last week, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, gave some spectacularly bad advice to a group of women at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in Phoenix. He said: “It’s not really about asking for the raise but knowing and having faith that the system will actually give you the right raises as you go along,” I was originally supposed to be at this event, and it’s probably a good thing that my plans changed because, I think I would have had to be physically restrained to not run up on the stage and shout, “He’s wrong!

    1 Oct 2013 | 6:45 am
    Like it or not, networking is an important part of business development. Are you resistant to networking because it makes you feel inauthentic and self-absorbed? After all, you wouldn't be doing it at all if you didn't want something from the other person, right? Or, perhaps you feel like you have to become someone you're not--chatty, schmoozy, back slapping and smarmy. If any of these sounds like you, then let me set you straight on what networking really is and why an authentic you is the best face to put forward. Networking is not just about you.

    10 Sep 2013 | 6:45 am
    There is a fine line between establishing competence and being a braggart. Finding the exact right balance can be tricky. Too much "Me" can turn your client prospects off while not enough may not capture their attention and demonstrate your value. I often recommend that coaching clients use an accolades sheet as part of their firm's business development tool kit. In creating the document, I advise them to do what I do--keep it a simple one pager that sticks with the facts and avoids over-embellishments. To make it stand out, I suggest that it be turned into a visually pleasing piece executed…

  • Know When to Say No: Triage Bright, Shiny Objects & Bluebirds

    Rick McPartlin
    19 Nov 2014 | 4:23 pm
    From time to time, we all have to figure out how to, or even if to, approach a special target client or a bluebird deal. Every special target or opportunity has a real cost associated with it, as well as the revenue. We all know about the costs of an airplane trip, taking technical resources with us, the time to research and investigate, as well as the fact that we are not working on other more predictable deals in our pipeline. But there are some other costs that are larger both in the short-term and certainly, in the long-term. Organizations that are going to survive and thrive have…

    My clients teach me a lot of lessons. The best lessons come from when they keep asking me a question that I don’t understand. It’s not that I don’t understand the question, but rather, that I don’t understand why they are asking it because, to me, the answer is SO clear, and I think they already know the answer. Maybe the most common question involves how to create and then deliver a COMPELLING MESSAGE to the IDEAL CLIENT. That question comes up many times a week. I dive into a detailed answer. The client acts like they get it, and then, they ask me again tomorrow. Shame on me! I need…

    Every day we are told how to learn about running a businesses from sports examples, and that works in a lot of cases. One big difference, however, is the “Business Season” season never ends. For every sports team, there is the chance to change everything after the season ends. Fire, hire, draft, new offense, improve the defense, spend more or spend less or even move cities are all options, and when the next year starts, everything is new and different. Business doesn’t work that way. There is NO off season. There is NO new season. Our brand and client relations carry from tonight to…

If they are different, is there a “right” order, and how do they help CEOs control their survival and growth?

  • The Impact of Workplace Conflict

    ipeccoaching
    20 Nov 2014 | 1:36 pm
    “Often those that criticize others reveal what he himself lacks.” ― Shannon L. Alder According to the Ayers Group, an organizational consulting firm, managers spend 1/3 of their workday dealing with conflict. Conflict is responsible for the majority of work performance problems. It frequently takes the form of back stabbing, gossip, and in worse case scenarios, sabotage. A study entitled, “Workplace Conflict and How Businesses Can Harness It to Thrive,” conducted by CPP, Inc., found that employees in the U.S. spend nearly three hours per week dealing with conflict in the workplace.

    When time allows, one of my favorite pastimes is to find a quiet spot and lose myself between the covers of a good book. Sure, I like movies, but, a book lets me see the characters and locations as I envision them, not how someone else does. Reading is active. It’s stimulating. It’s creative. Most people I know enjoy reading. Some like Clancy and Crichton. Others prefer Stephen King or George R. R. Martin. Nora Roberts is, of course, one of the most popular current authors. Though their genres and styles differ, one thing they all share is the ability […]

    Working in the coaching community, I am exposed to lots, and I mean lots, of tremendously talented people. People who motivate. People who inspire. People who are so full of energy it radiates out of them and is absorbed by others. They come from as varied backgrounds as one can imagine. From business executives to cancer survivors and actors to policemen (I was going to say “actors to zoologists” for the A to Z effect, but I honestly don’t know any zoologists) and anywhere in between, they all have one thing in common: they not only have great attitudes about […]

    Have you ever thought about how people will change just to fit into their environment? In 1962, social psychologist Solomon Asch teamed up with the then popular television show, Candid Camera, to demonstrate how quickly a basic social norm (how people stand in an elevator facing the door), could be reversed using group conformity. During the experiment, Asch had his team enter an elevator first, turn around, and face in the other direction. People who entered afterwards did the same. They faced the back wall instead of the door. It was a simple, yet effective way to demonstrate that people…

I’d be lying if there haven’t been times when someone cuts me off while driving that I didn’t think having a Howitzer mounted on my car would be a handy option car dealers should offer. Rudeness, inconsideration, and selfishness also get under my skin. Of course, witnessing meanness and cruelty can get my blood pressure rising. It’s OK to get angry. It’s a natural, often physiological, response to negative stimuli. The important thing to learn, however, is to not act in…

    Ashwati Michael

    Being Assertive in the workplace is a frequently misunderstood concept as there is many of us who confuse assertiveness with being aggressive and domineering. Everyone wants to feel acknowledged and empowered in his or her workplace, but research states most people feel powerless and subjugated. This is because they are unable to express themselves with clarity and confidence. This keeps getting worse as you climb up the ranks and do not find solutions earlier in your career. via To understand this phenomenon better, I am going to take you through the kinds of communication styles regularly…
