  • Power of Appreciation

    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…

    So you walk into an office and your boss is visibly unhappy about something. Or you are an athlete, and your team member is upset, or a fellow competitor starts to get under your skin. The probability that you will subsequently adopt the emotions of the environment and people around you is very high, and mostly subconscious. We have “mirror neurons” in our brain that simply mimic the emotions of people around us. Why would we be designed for this? Because our physiological makeup was not wired for the world many of us live in today. It was designed so that when we saw danger in someone…

The CEO politely asked again,”No. I didn’t ask what you did. I asked what you changed?” The candidate was not prepared for this question. She did not get the job but years later, when she became a CEO herself, she talked about how that question changed the way she “did” her job.  Certainly, there are parts of everyone’s job that require you to “do” but the “doing” has to result in a positive change, she now argues.

Most, however, respond with values like Integrity, Honesty, Respect, and such like. After the first few, people typically throw out many others that are similar but it is obvious to me that they are responding in “brainstorming mode” as opposed to a mode where these values are carefully thought of and selected.  I then ask how they feel when one or more of these values are compromised? Do they feel good? How…

    Every day we learn that what we’ve been taught about our human minds and behaviors is pretty much wrong. 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. Every single human is unique – and needs unique…

    We’re all quite familiar with the power of a voice. Think back to childhood. You knew when your mom was angry with you, didn’t you? How? The tone of her voice. Research suggests that 38% of communication is based on the tonality and inflections of our voice.  Our voices certainly offer a rich array of nuance in communication  For example: When we raise our voices at the end of a sentence – we infer a question. When we keep our voices flat through the sentence – we infer a statement. When we drop our voices at the end of a sentence – we infer a command. Simple…

Sometimes called “spray and pray” or “sheep dipping,” many efforts provide one-off learning or development events in the hope that something will stick. With weak follow through and little connection to daily work life it rarely does. Decades of research also shows that 70% of organizational change efforts fail. And the “snicker factor” soars as leaders rollout another branding exercise or change mantra. Too often culture or…

    A New Yorker cartoon shows two people standing at a bar having a glass of wine. One is peering over the top of a tall dog cone around his neck and explains to the other “It keeps me from checking my phone every two seconds.” The Information Overload Research Group reports that “knowledge workers in the United States waste 25% of their time dealing with their huge and growing data streams, costing the economy $997 billion annually.” In way too many cases, “smart phones” are turning us into dumb digital slaves.

    29 Jun 2015 | 9:00 am
    NLP trainers and NLP students giving workshops on the topic often come to me for my advise, or wish to re-train with me to update their skill set with me as a senior trainer who has seen and done it all: not just students of all flavors (and challenges), but even calamities inside the training venue. I would say things calmed down a long time ago for me, because the crystal ball gets a little clearer, and our experience allows us to create balanced NLP classes, where the biggest wave is the one of students’ personal breakthroughs. 10 NLP Trainers training tricks: Tip 1: 70/30 Comfort rule:…

    NLP and decision making go hand in hand. There are multiple strategies possible.

They can be used for a host of different reasons to go ahead with a goal or not, eating, or any situation where you have to decide right or left.

    An NLP Timeline Technique for procrastination after discovering the positive intention would be ideal. How to you discover the positive intention? Read the previous article: NLP Life Coaching Technique for Procrastination. The steps: 1. Close your eyes, go inside, and take a moment to relax. And get a sense of your life path, even our life paths often in our bodies and minds represent themselves in a certain way.

    NLP Life Coaching Technique for Procrastination Part 1 NLP Life Coaching to discover why some of us are prone to procrastination seems to be a little bit of the holy grail. But this is actually easily possible. In fact, I view doing this exercise as absolutely crucial in finding the cause, reason and solution to procrastination. I also use the same NLP technique for many other presenting problems, unrelated to this subject. A key element is the understanding that there is a positive intention motivating every behavior. This may seem a little odd, as procrastination is “bad” behavior and…

    An NLP pattern for procrastination are plentiful in both an NLP Practitioner training as well as Master Practitioner. Even though most recent graduates don’t realize. Among the top 5 problems I have actually found among my NLP coaching clients is procrastination. I think it is something that we all suffer from to a degree, but interestingly many clients who seek coaching from me are successful people who seek my services because they feel they should be doing more. Perhaps anyone who “suffers” from procrastination are people who have high expectations of themselves. While the people who…

  • Is “best” the worst way to end an email?

    Diane Craig
    29 Jun 2015 | 12:27 pm
    You may or may not have stumbled upon the article in Bloomberg News which claims that “best” may in fact be the worst way to end an email. Email etiquette consultant Judith Kallos states that “…best is benign. […] It works when you apparently don’t know what else to use.” Others continue to bash the signoff, saying it is impersonal, abrupt and charmless, amongst other things. The experts quoted in this article believe that the best way to end an email is by saying nothing at all. But is that really the case? Not saying anything at the end of an email can come off as curt, short,…

    Inspired by our last post on etiquette for the summer barbecue, and in honour of wedding season, here are a few tips and tricks to get you through you’re increasingly expanding list of impending weddings. Weddings are no doubt a fun, joyous and exciting experience for not only the bride and groom, but also for the guests. The nuptials, followed by cocktail hour and then (hopefully) the formal sit-down dinner usually lend themselves to a good time, and a romantic one at that. As much as the bride and the groom are the focus of this special day (as they should be), many people also see…

They have also spilled over into the professional world and have become an informal setting for colleagues get together outside of the office Office barbecues can be a great place to get to know your colleagues, and perhaps even your superiors, on a more personal level, given the informal and relaxed setting.

      As we teach at Corporate Class Inc., Executive Presence is neither exclusive nor elusive – it can be learned. Still, a powerful presence is not something that you can acquire instantly without guidance or practice. You must take time to understand and incorporate Executive Presence into your life while building your reputation to go with it. However, do not let this discourage you from pursuing Executive Presence. Instead, set achievable goals and identify stages on the path to developing an impressive presence – and suddenly it will seem easier than you think! Here are a few…

    Have you ever heard the phrase “haste makes waste”? There is truth to this expression, especially in the workplace – as making decisions and producing work too quickly can have negative effects. However, getting caught up in a rush can be difficult to avoid: the fast-paced environments of many workplaces demand immediate results. How, then, do you reconcile the requirement for prompt action and production with high-quality work? There are a few strategies to take so that you can work efficiently but not hastily.

  • Midcareer Crisis …or Opportunity?

    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…

    What’s the most significant change in behavior you’ve made as an adult? For some, it’s quitting smoking or drinking, or making healthy changes in eating and exercising. For others, it’s becoming a better listener, a more effective manager, or a nicer partner or spouse. No matter what changes you’ve made, whether physical, social, or work-related, almost everyone agrees that lasting change is hard. It requires determination, motivation, vigilance, persistence, and long-term commitment. Most would agree that asking for help from a trusted friend, mentor, or…

    Most of us have a poor sense of our talents and strengths, yet are acutely aware of our weaknesses and flaws. Throughout the education system and subsequent careers, there’s often been much more attention paid to how to improve and fix our shortcomings rather than enhance our strengths. “Most Americans do not know what their strengths are. When you ask them, they look at you with a blank stare, or they respond in terms of subject knowledge, which is the wrong answer.” —Peter Drucker, management expert Parents, teachers, and managers are well versed in spotting deficits.

    The challenges of 21st-century work—rapid innovation, unrelenting change and unprecedented uncertainty—have created a stress pandemic. The future of work – your work – may involve robots, even as a manager or leader. Depending on your disposition, you may view the future as ripe for a spectacular explosion of creativity or poised on the brink of self-destruction. Either way, there’s no going back. The tools and skills we’ve developed over the last century inadequately address imminent challenges. We’re caught between two paradigms: a collapsing industrial platform and an…

    Patty Azzarello
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:31 pm
    Preserving your energy As I was writing the title for this post, I recalled when a former boss told me, “What I need most from you is to cope. I need you to be willing to come back every day.” This was a real gift to me because sometimes merely coping with the strain of a tough job seems all you can really do. You’re worried about not adding enough value because you are barely coping. But this comment made me think about truly, how much trouble it would be for your boss if you weren’t there — coping! So give yourself some slack. Work is hard. Coping is an…

    8 Jun 2015 | 2:11 pm
    People don’t become more strategic I frequently talk to executives who are concerned about particular individuals on their team, saying, “I need them to be more strategic”. Reality check: I have never seen anyone become more strategic. OK, there are a few closeted-strategic people out there who do not yet realize that they are allowed to be more strategic. They might be junior or inexperienced, but when they are told “you should be more strategic” and given a little support, they get a boost of confidence and they transform – pretty quickly. So it is definitely worth giving…

    13 May 2015 | 3:43 am
    Missing the clues I work as a business advisor to executives, and in doing so also I often also have 1-1 conversations with their direct reports. I can’t count how many times, though I am having confidential conversations with each of them, I am left thinking, “Do you two ever talk to each other?” They are often in violent agreement about how they feel, about what needs to be done, and about what role each of them should play in doing it. But to talk to either of them you’d think that they lived on different planets. The executive will say, “This leader just…

    Your office desk is a far cry from a zen-like environment.

Or that kicking back in a feet up, hands-behind-your-head position helps you exude more confidence and express yourself more authentically a few minutes later? But the secret is, well, doing it in secret. The posing is prep you do for a power boost before your big moment. You don’t want to do it with an audience.

    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? Knowing how the people you work with react and respond to situations is very advantageous. You can work with their personalities to get more work done and get along a…
  • What are Your “Two-cents” Really Worth?

    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…

A perfect example of an innovative company with a highly collaborative workforce is Bell Labs. From 1925 to 1980, Bell Labs contributed more to technology than any other company in history. The organization filed for 17,000 patents, which is the equivalent of five patents a day for 50 years. How did Bell Labs accomplish so much?

    Most companies tout an open door policy, meant to encourage employees to voice their concerns and feedback in the workplace. Even so, employees are often afraid of being candid due to the fear of repercussions. Companies usually benefit from listening to their employees, especially if they are on the front line and have direct interaction with customers. When employees choose to keep their feelings to themselves, or communicate their thoughts only to their peers, companies can miss out on learning about new ways to serve customers or make operational improvements.

    Are you the sort of boss that CC’s everyone, for everything? Are you the office gossip? Do you roll your eyes at bad jokes, then find yourself repeating them the next morning at the coffee machine? There are plenty of communication sins that take place at offices around the world, most of them forgivable. But due largely in part to the increasing diversity of today’s workforce, it’s imperative that senior managers recognize the importance of adapting communication styles for every situation, and every employee.

  • Cultural Fit – Building the Right Company Culture

    Experteer Magazine
    1 Jul 2015 | 3:00 am
    More and more often, it seems that highly trained and highly competent senior managers are leaving their new employers after an even shorter time. In some cases, a new “dream job” is voluntarily abandoned, and in others, an executive is let go, despite his incredible qualifications. How can this be? Their technical skills, their work history, their analytical and problem solving skills passed muster during the interview process – the candidate seemed like an ideal employee. So what went wrong?
