    As a leader, how adept are you at communicating your true intentions and managing perceptions? Even at the highest levels of government and business, leaders struggle to communicate their intentions. Most of us have some demonstrable deficiencies when it comes to influencing others. “You can influence people’s perceptions of you by playing to their needs. Once you understand how to make other people feel comfortable with you, you’ve won their approval.” —Corporate marketing consultant Camille Lavington, You’ve Only Got Three Seconds (Main Street Books, 1998) A leader’s words may…

    Meetings are a standard fixture in every company’s daily routine, but finding employees that are excited to attend a meeting is seldom heard of. The problem: More and more frequently, meetings are seen as being unproductive, exercises in self-congratulation and excuses to ramble and rant. An egoist in one corner, a know-it-all in another – this is the modern day image of a meeting, just like in the books.  But we’re here to help illuminate which habits can kill productivity, and how you can prevent them from forming.

    Poor time management is simply a bad habit. You can learn to organize and control your time better by following some simple tips listed below: – If a task takes less than five minutes, do it right away. If it takes longer, put it on a list. Keep a written to-do list and incorporate the “less than five minute” strategy. – For a couple of days, take an inventory of how you spend your time to find out where and how you’re wasting time. Write down everything you do today and reflect – is there something you are wasting time on? – Cut big jobs into small chunks. Order…

  • Overnight Success

    Pascal Orelus
    1 Sep 2015 | 4:32 am
    Real success is not achieved overnight. Never compare your journey to someone else’s. You have no idea what a person had to do to get to where they’re at unless they’ve told you. It may seem that it should have been you in the position but that kind of thinking is not going to get you far. Jealousy is a trait of unsuccessful people and God wonderfully made you to serve a unique purpose. People with a success mindset are inspired by the accomplishments of others and energized to pursue their own life goals. Enjoy your journey to success no matter what obstacles you have to go…

    Our Social Media Manager is a big football fan and for the first time this year she has decided to play Fantasy Football. Now I don’t know much about what’s going on in the league right now, let alone Fantasy Football. I however did hear her head the desk in the back room of our office with an audible groan. It turns out she missed the draft for her league and ended up with a bunch of players that she wouldn’t have picked if she had actually attended. I couldn’t help but laugh and immediately see my 20 years of experience speaking with business owners and clients flash before my eyes.
  • Where’s your compass

    laurencerumming
    31 Aug 2015 | 6:52 am
    Many of us grew up with toy compasses that came out of Cracker Jack boxes, graduating later on to the Boy Scout variety.  Before the advent of GPS we relied on the sun, stars and the magnetic poles of the earth to find our way when travelling or exploring. There is another compass that we rely on.  It is the guidance offered us by education, parents, peers, our mentors, our life experience, forming our moral compass.  Sometimes there are attractions that pull us off course, we falter, perhaps make mistakes, but our moral compass will be tasked to bring us back to the correct path.

    25 Aug 2015 | 5:59 am
    Schedule management is a key process in time management. While tasks are pertinent to an individual, meetings and appointments involve other people. This is why punctuality is valued—punctuality proves that one is reliable, responsible and values other peoples’ time. Appointments go through four phases—creation, maintenance, encounter, and follow-up. Creation is based not only on availability, that is, whether we are available at a specific point in time, but also on relevance and convenience. Maintenance includes deleting the appointment (no longer relevant) and changing aspects of…

  • Gossip vs Constructive Feedback

    Izzy Justice
    23 Aug 2015 | 1:05 pm
    Giving feedback continues to be one of the more challenging tasks for many leaders. Recipients struggle with the process just as much, as emotional temperatures typically rise during the process. It is my contention that the primary onus of this process belongs to the giver of the feedback. I have noted that all too often the feedback given has not gone through the due diligence process required so that it is in fact received for its intended purpose – for improvement. I call this feedback Gossip Feedback. This feedback usually starts with “I heard that” or “Someone said” or “I…
  • The Science of Non Verbal Communication

    Izzy Justice
    3 Aug 2015 | 8:56 am
    I have read for years that what we communicate non-verbally is about 90% of what the audience interprets. It was not until recently that I ran into the neuroscience to corroborate this widely-held view. In a study of brain activity, subjects were shown 3-5 minute videos of people speaking to them. Their brains were attached to scanners that allowed neuroscientists to see visually both the level of activity in the brain, and also the specific locations (neuropathways) of the activity. In the study, the same videos were shown twice; once with the audio on and another with it off. The sequence…
  • Passion Statements

    Whether I am coaching an executive in a company or a professional athlete, I always ask the question: What is your Passion Statement? The answer can’t be “because I love what I do.” The answer should be why you love what you do. What is it about what you do that you find meaningful? How much of the response is really a part of your identity. Unlike elevator speeches, which are those 60-second pitches describing who you are or what you do, the primary audience for Passion Statements is yourself. It should not be what you think someone else wants to hear or what you are…

    Izzy Justice
    1 Jun 2015 | 6:40 am
    This is by no means a new topic. Who can really argue that showing appreciation to others – friends, family, coworkers, employees and others – is not a good thing? So why is it still an issue we see recurring in exit interviews of employees and in failed or unhealthy relationships? The most common answer is lack of time. And I think we can all safely label that as terrible excuse. My take is that we do not really understand the true value of appreciation, and this devalues its role and priority in day to day interactions.  From a neuroscience perspective, know that we are wired…

    We’re all infected with the Charlatans as Experts syndrome. OK, so maybe that’s a bit harsh. Perhaps it’s really not that harsh in light of the insidious nature of this mental mistake. Maybe, like me, you shake your head watching the inanity as random thoughts and never to be proven theories become “expert advice” for the naive and /or unquestioning public.  All I can do is think, “What the he$$….” I often wonder why smart people can be so easily brainwashed by these charlatans… on social media (in the digital divide) or in person.

My latest venture is into the world of reined cow horses.  What a sport!  The hardest thing I’ve ever done. Part of my challenge has been my precious mare, Pearli.  She had a tough start and the show pen became a scary place for her. The first time I showed her, she tried to lay down rather than go into that arena.  Took 3 guys to get her in.  After that, well, Toad’s Wild Ride comes to mind. We’ve worked hard to heal that panic.  These days,  everything in the…

Our Brains Are Crappy at Processing Information We’ve all heard that the human mind/brain is an amazing computer, the biggest and baddest on the planet.  Guess what? It’s not. Our conscious mind is the slowest computer around, able to manage a mere 57 bits/second.  That’s less than the world’s first floppy-based PC.  Seriously. Our unconscious mind has greater processing power, filtering some 11M bits/second to select 126 bits to…

For example we’ve been told that: Humans are rational creatures dominated by our conscious, logical minds. That’s not true. Our unconscious minds drive 90- 95% of our decisions and behaviors. We don’t even know it’s happening. People are people and we can motivate and lead all of them with similar proven techniques.  What if I told you that no two humans are programmed the same?  That’s right.

    A few thought provoking excerpts from, The Culture Blueprint: A Guide to Building the High-Performance Workplace, by Robert Richman: Culture change is not a strategy or an initiative. This is a total mind shift. Once you truly experience it, you can’t go back. Without taking care of your people, who will deliver? In order to take care of others, you must take care of yourself. That is why your own team’s needs (not wants, but needs) come before the customers.’ Values are the DNA of any organization…..values provide a decision-making framework… they can be re-engineered…

It is safe to say I have traveled a few miles, figuratively and literally. I have taught NLP in Asia, Europe, North-America, and the Caribbean. 1.. Master the meta-model FIRST. Really sweat the rest of NLP later. Once you have this down like a pro, you will be an effective coach already. Your results and accuracy will fly. NLP itself wouldn’t exist if the meta model weren’t created first. Your modeling will also be more effective. 2. Test your work, your results…

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:31 am
    This NLP technique for fear is one that I turned into a video a long time ago, as a former student was stumped with a client. As part of our post-course support, we answer questions by video. In this blog post, I will write down the steps for you as well. Please note that this NLP technique for fear is not for phobias or very large fears. In fact, I would start under an intensity level of 6 (where 10 is phobic), and stick to someone who can visualize pretty well. Click here to view the embedded video. Step 1: Imagine an image of that thing you are afraid of. You want to project it in your…

    Nicole Schneider

    The NLP Milton model is a wonderful tool for coaching, public speaking, teaching and communication in general. It is taught as part of the NLP Practitioner course. Here are 10 easy tips to practice your NLP Milton Model after completing your first NLP class. 1. Focus on 1 part of the Milton model instead of the Milton Model entirely. The best way to eat an elephant is to do so one bite at a time. 2. Write down 3 Milton Model sentences a day (or make them up on your way to work), that you can could use in any context you have planned for that day. 3. Set a well formed outcome to master the…

  • Emotions Drive Expressiveness

    Diane Craig
    31 Aug 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Over the last two weeks, we looked at reaching out as it relates to leadership presence, and how you can use empathy and the power of making connections to build your leadership presence. This week, as well as next week, we will be looking at expressiveness and where it fits in the quest for leadership presence. This week, we will examine how you can use emotions to drive expressiveness. According to Belle Linda Halpern and Kathy Lubar, expressiveness is “the ability to express feelings and emotion appropriately by using all means of expressing – words, voice, body, face – to deliver…

Last week we discussed reaching out and empathy, and this week we continue on the topic of reaching out, but specifically reaching out and making connections. According to Belle Linda Halpern and Kathy Lubar, authors of “Leadership Presence: Dramatic Techniques to Reach Out, Motivate and Inspire”, empathy not only requires seeing and feeling, but also expression.

    In today’s fast-paced business environment, leaders must make complex decisions quickly, even when faced with uncertainty. Data and numbers rarely provide a complete picture. Making sound decisions in a chaotic climate requires us to strengthen our intuitive thinking. Refining our intuition ensures more accurate and innovative insights. “The instinctive genius that enables a CEO to craft the perfect strategy could require an uncanny ability to detect patterns that other people either overlook or mistake for random noise.” ~Alden M.

    Who hasn’t said something in the heat of the moment that they regret? Everyone makes mistakes. We make insensitive statements, we speak before we think, and we let our emotions get the best of us. No workplace is perfect. Managers berate subordinates in meetings. Colleagues make snide remarks about each other. Even worse, people send emails, texts, or tweets without giving sufficient consideration to how the messages will be received. This makes our insensitivities more public and all the more egregious. Even seasoned executives aren’t immune from foot-in-mouth disease. Tony…

    As a leader, how adept are you at communicating your true intentions and managing perceptions? Even at the highest levels of government and business, leaders struggle to communicate their intentions. Most of us have some demonstrable deficiencies when it comes to influencing others. “You can influence people’s perceptions of you by playing to their needs. Once you understand how to make other people feel comfortable with you, you’ve won their approval.” —Corporate marketing consultant Camille Lavington, You’ve Only Got Three Seconds (Main Street Books, 1998) A leader’s words may…

Is technology really saving you time and energy —like it’s supposed to do —or is it running rampant, creating unnecessary work? Most of us are bombarded by messages, texts, alerts, and buzzed throughout the day with rings, chirps, and dings, making it difficult to concentrate on crucial information. With the slightest urge to procrastinate, we’re never more than a click away from diversion. This 24/7 connected culture is taking its toll professionally as well as personally. We…

    Patsi Krakoff
    21 Jun 2015 | 10:22 am
    Have you ever had a midcareer fantasy where you quit your job and go do something new? Many executives secretly admit to their coaches that they’re contemplating midcareer shifts. They may not actively seek change, but they certainly start imagining it. Of LinkedIn’s 313 million members, 25% are active job seekers; 60% are passive job seekers (not proactively searching for new jobs, but seriously willing to consider viable opportunities). There’s also been a steady increase in self-employed and temporary workers over the last two decades. Entrepreneurship may sound lucrative every time…

    Busy is a choice Through my work, I talk to many people (exeucitves, mid-level managers, and individuals) at many different companies, and the one issue that seems epidemic is that people are all too busy. I’ve done webinars on Negotiating your Workload, and Ruthless Priorities & Guilt to help people take more control over their time, but today I want to talk about how to change your mindset around how you choose to use your time. It’s important to remember that we are each the source of our own time. Our time is completely defined by what we say yes to, and what we say no…

Members of Azzarello group can download this webinar for free. Conversations move business forward As I work with executives at many companies, one of the things I notice that makes the most effective leaders and teams really stand out, is their ability to have the right conversations.

Executives get scared. Every time I got a big promotion, I was scared. If you are human, you will get scared when you face a new, big challenge or opportunity. (Unless you are a psychopath — those are basically your two choices: 1. human and scared or 2. psychopath). While it’s OK to be…

    What’s a good staff meeting? I have found myself talking about this with several clients over the past few weeks, so I decided to refresh this article. This is such an important topic that any effective manager needs to get really right. Questions I get: What should I be doing with my staff as a team? How should I organize my staff meetings? What are the right topics to discuss? What is the right agenda for a staff meeting? One of the most important things to recognize is that if you take the time to collect your team together as a team, the last thing you should do is review status.

They want to know how to better personally influence others or how to train their managers on influence and engagement. The answer is simple but not easy. The simple answer is to make people WANT to help you. Don’t be THAT guy Here is what I mean. Think about when you are really busy and you are in your office working on something — and how there are some people who, when you see them coming, you are still glad to see them — even if they ask you to do something for them.

Let’s take a quick look at a few ideas to get through these times where things didn’t go as planned. 1) Your leaders failed you. It happens.

A bridge is something used to make it easier to transport from point to point. Then I thought, “Why would someone destroy something that makes life easier?” When people are discussing bridges and not burning them, they are usually discussing it in the context of quitting a job. This is where you get the little tips about giving notice, offering to train your replacement and not saying anything negative about your coworkers or supervisor. But how…

    Workplace bullying is very prevalent in the workplace. While it is not as blatant as schoolyard bullying, it can still affect work performance and satisfaction. I will attempt to explain some of the different ways people bully others at work and how they can work to put the practice to an end. The workplace bully usually works in a passive-aggressive manner, so it is not quite obvious to everyone. The bully has people on their side to witness the events how they want them seen. For every person they bully at work, they probably have a pet that they look out for at work. We can see that this…

I think she did a great job at covering most of the people I meet on a daily basis. We might be able to come up with one or two more, like a mix of these 13 types. People are so complex, yet we are simple in a lot of ways. But even knowing these 13 personality types, what good is it beyond entertainment?

  • What are Your “Two-cents” Really Worth?

    Cecil Wampler

    We often hear people add their opinion to a debate or add their two-cents. Some people always agree while others always find ways to disagree. Some people don’t care and just wait for time to go home. Are you adding value to the arguments and agreements you have in your company? Agreements are not usually helpful in anyway. This is especially true if everyone just agrees with whatever the top person is saying. There is a saying in business that when two people always agree, one of them is no longer necessary. It’s just lazy to agree and let others do all the work. I make it a point to…

I barely taste it and often I’m not even hungry when I eat that cookie. Meanwhile, I’m trying to limit the amount of sugar that I eat because it really wreaks havoc on my physical and mental wellbeing. That cookie may well put me over a healthy sugar intake for the day.
