    A little respect goes a long way. In business, there is no exception to this rule: in fact, this piece of advice is extra important while conducting business. Building good rapport with others – or, building relationships that are based on mutual respect and trust – is one of the most consistent and foolproof strategies for success. Although “building rapport” is often associated with the sales industry (in that sales professionals work to build good rapport with customers and clients), it is actually applicable to your relationships with any contact, no matter what profession or…

    As a dad of two terrific kids, I find this time of year particularly exciting. The new school year, though it signals an end of summer vacation, also represents a new beginning. They’ll have new teachers. Meet some new friends. Have tremendous successes and probably a few frustrations along the way, which I think, both offer important lessons. Mostly, they’ll be learning. A love of learning evolves over time. I remember when I was their age…how I was sort of oblivious to what learning was all about. I got good grades and was a respectful and inquisitive student but, as a…

Drop activities that sap your time or energy. “Many people waste their time on activities or people that add no value — for example, spending too much time at work with a colleague who is constantly venting and gossiping,” says Marilyn Puder-York, PhD, a psychologist and executive coach in New York and Connecticut. Her advice: Take stock of activities that don’t enhance your career or personal life, and minimize the time you spend on them.

    This week, I will be attempting to complete my second Ironman Triathlon. 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…

She was able to get through the day successfully but was totally exhausted. I told her she had a great day. My valuation of her day surprised her and she asked: How could that possibly be a great day?   From an EQ perspective, we all know there is a broad spectrum of emotions we can feel in any given day.

Over 120 years later, Harvard University Press published the original text of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

    Last week I had two separate one-on-one coaching sessions with the Provost and a key Dean at a major university. We were reviewing the 360 assessment report they’d just received from students, faculty, peers, their manager, and others. Both assessments were quite strong with many leadership competencies rated at the 90th percentile and most above the 70th percentile. These scores put them in the top 10% of leaders in both our academic and global databases. Perhaps because of their careers steeped in academia they struggled to let go of a few weaker areas (they weren’t “fatal…

    A critical Talent Management challenge is who to promote into leadership roles. Many organizations, either formally or informally, compile a list of people they believe will have high potential for promotion. These high potential individuals, HIPOs, often receive extra developmental opportunities beyond what’s available to the rest of their peers. But will these people succeed? From an individual’s point of view, being selected to be on the high potential list has enormous benefits. From the organization’s point of view, however, there is a great deal at stake in this…

  • Emotional Expressiveness for Leaders

    Patsi Krakoff
    25 Aug 2014 | 6:32 am
    How well do the leaders in your organization express their emotions? What about you? Do you appropriately articulate your feelings? Do you use emotional expressiveness to persuade and inspire others? “Great leaders move us. They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. When we try to explain why they are so effective, we speak of strategy, vision or powerful ideas. But the reality is much more primal. Great leadership works through the emotions.” ~ Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee, Primal Leadership (Harvard Business Review Press, 2013) Leaders are responsible for…

  • Why are the Salem Witch Trials like Sales & Marketing?

    Rick McPartlin
    20 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    My most surprising vacation was to Salem Massachusetts. I had been in Massachusetts hundreds of times and Salem, at least 3 times. This time, I went with my kids as one of my teenage daughters, a writer, was fixated on the Salem Witch Trials. She had told me the details, but this trip opened my eyes and mind. When you tour Salem, there are museums, historic homes, places you have only read about, and then, there is the courthouse where the trial was held. When you go into the courthouse, you become entangled in a reenactment of the trial. Not in an imaginary kind of way with spirits, but a…
  • Why Does NO ONE Want to be Healthy & Rich When It’s So Easy?

    Rick McPartlin
    30 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Sleep, exercise, diet, relax, laugh, smile, and a glass of red wine have a lot to do with health. Like the commercial says, “Who doesn’t know that?” But knowing it and applying it are two completely different things. Even though we know about each of these, what we are most likely to do is: Sleep – too little and irregularly Exercise – way too little and wrong (we will surely be injured as a result) Diet – every year from the 1st of January and again before each season (for one week) Laugh – when social pressure requires and/or embarrassment surfaces and also, at babies and…
  • Why Do CEOs Hire People Backwards?

    Rick McPartlin
    2 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    CEOs have two choices in hiring: CEOs can search for great people and then create motivation, alignment and profits – BACKWARDS!!!! CEOs can hire passionate, motivated and aligned people who are chasing the CEO’s bus because those people already on the bus are excited, charged with energy, and aligned to a revenue strategy, which is achieving profitable growth based on an aligned True North. Guess what Apple, Disney and Harley do? At these companies, the employees are there to achieve the shared True North (WHY, Dream, Vision, etc.) as a member of a committed team.  There is a deployable…

    SEO, Keywords, Clicks, Views, Email Campaign, Brand Image, Community, Cloud, Web Presence, Mobile, Apps and all those other words are things you pay a Digital Marketing Agency to do for you.  They must be about better lead generation or shorter sales cycles, or higher margins, right? Maybe!?! The most famous quote about marketing and advertising comes from John Wanamaker: "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don't know which half.” How does that apply to “Digital” Marketing? Or, is what we call “Digital” marketing at all? So many different things are…

    Cecil Wampler
    31 Aug 2014 | 8:23 am
    All of us want to eventually move up to the next level. It doesn’t just happen by itself. It requires a little effort and planning. One of the things I noticed recently was that managers don’t really put in the time to build an impressive portfolio for themselves. I’m talking about building the kind of experience that another employer would find impressive. Are you taking on complicated projects? Are you managing a number of moving parts to accomplish big goals? Even more importantly, are you making time to record these experiences in a resume? During the interview process, you’ll be…
  • The Dirty Dozen: 12 Characteristics of Bad Bosses

    There are personalities that are not good for anyone in the workplace, but are most offensive when someone in power acts this way. I made this list as an informative and fun way to look at real problem behavior in the workplace. I read last week an article on people who managers should fire in the workplace. The article got me thinking of what types of managers are there in the workplace who are equally a problem. Here is my list and I appreciate your help in adding to the list. 1) Troublemaker- these managers like to always have trouble going in the workplace. If there is bad news to be…
  • Ideas For Thanking Your Employees

    Thanking your employees is the universal way to show you appreciate their hard work. There are a number of ways of doing it and you can get as creative as you like. Here are just a few ideas to get your mind going. I hope you find some good ones to put into action where you work. I think you’ll find they are more effective than a raise in most cases and really increases motivation and engagement. 1) Saying “Thank you.” This is the easiest and gets overlooked a lot of times. In my job, I will say thank you for any help I get, but I always make a point to come back at some point and…

    We see it all the time. A person says something on Facebook or Twitter and they get themselves into trouble. You might watch what you say, but you can still get led into trouble. What types of photos do you have online? What photos have others tagged you in? These are all new concerns for people who are trying to move up in their company or looking for a new job. Recruiters and hiring managers are usually going to Google your name and see what types of information comes up. More than likely, they will check out your social media and see what you’re up to away from work. It seems like an…
  • Things Managers Should Never Say

    Cecil Wampler
    21 Jun 2014 | 3:09 pm
    I read an article a few days ago that had a list of things employees should never say. It was things like “This is not part of my job” or “I can’t do it.” It made me immediately think of the things managers should never say to employees. The ways that words are used and chosen in the workplace defines the direction and culture of the organization and the type of leadership in place within the organization. If a manager is reporting on the great work of an employee, she might say “John took over this task last April and has created wonderful results for us this past year.” Now…

    As a dad of two terrific kids, I find this time of year particularly exciting. The new school year, though it signals an end of summer vacation, also represents a new beginning. They’ll have new teachers. Meet some new friends. Have tremendous successes and probably a few frustrations along the way, which I think, both offer important lessons. Mostly, they’ll be learning. A love of learning evolves over time. I remember when I was their age…how I was sort of oblivious to what learning was all about. I got good grades and was a respectful and inquisitive student but, as a…
  • 7 Weight Loss Tips (For Your Brain)

    Ah, the never-ending battle to stay or get in shape. Atkins, low-cal, vegetarian, South Beach, low-fat, and dozens of others all claim to work. Exercise more. Cut out junk food. Weight Watchers. Jenny Craig. The weight loss industry is a $20 billion market. Yet, obesity is at an all-time high. Is it because of the food we eat or a more sedentary lifestyle? Probably a combination of both. For some, keeping the weight off is easy, as infuriating that may be for the rest of us. For others, every calorie seems to go right to the hips or tummy. Staying […]

Mr. Williams could always make me laugh, frequently to the point of tears. He could also touch me through his roles as an actor in Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society, again, frequently to the point of tears. Especially, […]

So pardon my rant, but here goes… Each person MUST take full responsibility for their personal wellbeing. MUST!  Everyone MUST learn to trust their intuition, be a strong self-advocate, and follow through on that intuition. MUST! Healthcare professionals downplayed Maggie’s concern about her lump, but thankfully, Maggie didn’t downplay her own lump. You are the…

Yep, thanks to my buddy, Alison, I got to take the chilly bath. My wife got it, too. My kids liked it so much they did it on their own and nominated their friends. For those not in the know, the challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others […]

    Becoming a leader isn’t easy. It requires a lot of patience. It requires building trust. Earning the trust of those around you, and trusting yourself.

If you are interested in choosing to lead your life and your work, see if you can answer these key questions before taking the leap. Four Questions all Potential Leaders Should Ask Themselves 1.

  • Losing My Phone, Gaining My Life

    Diane Fleck
    28 Jul 2014 | 7:13 am
    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.
  • How Generous Leadership Spurs Greater Productivity

    Diane Murray-Fleck
    14 May 2014 | 9:00 am
    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…

    I have created this power tool since focusing and practicing this concept has changed my life in very profound ways. As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend  and entrepreneur, I play many important roles and have many priorities. Prior to having three wonderful children it was easy to maintain plentiful friendships and pursue many different interests without regard to whether my activities took energy away from my life, or added fulfillment to my life. I had time to care for myself, and if I was giving power, energy, or time to the “wrong” people, places, or things, it went…

    I haven’t ever been a corporate leader. And I know, that’s a little surprising for a coach who spends most of her time talking and writing about being a leader. So, if you chose to read no further, I understand. It’s pitiful. I know. But what I lack in pedigree and fancy letters after my name, I’ve compensated for with a lot of observations, conversations with professionals, and good old-fashioned trial-and-error. A little over 15 years of it. One of the things I’ve learned is that being an effective leader requires strong communication with those you work with.

    Making your work meaningful is not an idea that just found light. No one fancies growing up to age 50 and not finding the answer to: what was the purpose of my (professional) life?  Finding purpose in your management jobs is increasingly a topic many of us find interesting enough to dwell into. After all, with consistent job commitments, stress and even executive burnouts, and the key fact that we spend more than half of our lives working, we all want to find a sense of purpose and meaning. While work is a financial necessity for everyone. It involves making sacrifices, and can often tend…
