    We all know people that get a lot done in one day – more than the average person. Are they more motivated? That could be one reason, but most likely it is a combination of attitude, organization, and passion. Having the right attitude about what you are doing makes a big difference. Instead of looking at a task as something you have to do, try approaching it in a more positive way. Although there are many things that we have to do that we might not want to do, if you decide that the task is worthwhile, you will get […]

    What do you think of when you hear the word “greatness?” Someone who is a pioneer of industry? A sports superstar? A philanthropist? Your dad? Frosted Flakes? Do you ever think of yourself? You should… We can all be great. Hey, I know no one is perfect. But, we can all be great. We can be great at our jobs. We can be great parents. Great spouses. Great friends. See, greatness is as unique as it is subjective. We are all individuals with skills and talents and hopes and fears. All we need to do is understand that there is […]
  • Leading with Trust: Principles and Practice

    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…

    Like most, I was both shocked and incredibly sad that the great comic Robin Williams died last week. I followed quite a good bit of the news both on mainstream and social media. I was most moved by pictures of people standing on their desks professing: “Oh Captain My Captain” – a line from one of my all-time favorite movies, Dead Poets Society. I tried to glean what it was exactly that so many people from so many generations from so many different parts of the world loved about this man. I have concluded it was his ability to tell the simple truth. Sure he was a genius at…

I was in a situation where I was just about to have my second child, wondering how I was going to keep my business afloat, how I was going to pay my bills, no idea what I was going to do next. For our first lot of work he was able to take me through a rapid process where I was able to see my purpose from a high level, then get down to the nuts and bolts of what I needed to do fast. He then kept me accountable at every step of the way to ensure I followed through. My wonderful new child is with us, and my business has continued without missing a beat.

    If you could pinpoint a single factor that propels people to success, what would it be? That was the question posed to popular writer Malcolm Gladwell at this week’s World Business Forum in New York. Interestingly, he didn’t mention skills or innate abilities, deliberate practice, or even having the ideal conditions for success, though surely all are important. The most important factor, the “David and Goliath” author said, is having the desire to win and the passion for what you’re doing. “Nothing happens without desire and passion,” Gladwell told…

So, women around the world grab your tissues ready for the random and sudden fits of crying. It is fascinating that George Clooney is the guy that every woman wants to be with (well except me, I don’t know what all the fuss is about) and every man wants to be. George’s big on-screen persona, his brand, is so powerful we all feel like we know him. Even an old cynic like me feels a connection with the Clooney brand. So what is the George…

    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

    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…

    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.

As new generations replace retirees and your customers change, is your company culture still aligned with your company’s goals? If you are thinking your company culture is too embedded to change, consider the most truly American form of music, the Blues, and you will see that if it’s culture can change with the times, so can yours!

I have read many books that were entertaining, but not keepers, so I would get rid of them. I was never intentional about creating a personal library, and to be honest, I did not even think about it.

  • Perceptions Are a Leader’s Reality

    Jim Clemmer
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Have you ever caught yourself saying, “that’s not reality, that’s just their perception”? This is a common trap leaders often fall into when receiving personal feedback or reviewing organizational survey data. We judge ourselves by our intentions. Everyone else assesses our leadership effectiveness by our behavior. That’s a highly subjective evaluation based on what others see us doing. No one can see into a leader’s heart or hear his or her thoughts (which for some is a very good thing). So the perceptions of a leader’s direct reports, peers,…

    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. Eyes go up and to the left: a person constructs an image in the mind they haven’t seen before. 3. Eyes go right:…

  • Create a Workplace Culture that Fosters Executive Presence

    Diane Craig
    27 Oct 2014 | 9:14 am
    Developing Executive Presence is a personal journey. After all, Executive Presence reflects an individual’s self-presentation, conduct, attitude and reputation. However, environment can have a great effect on Executive Presence as well. In order to encourage your employees to recognize and improve their own Executive Presence, as a leader in your company you can aim to create a workplace culture that fosters Executive Presence. The more that your employees are aware of and committed to developing their own Executive Presence, the better your company’s image will be. The behaviour of your…
  • 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…
  • When is Punctuality Important for Business?

    Diane Craig
    16 Oct 2014 | 6:49 am
    Question: When is punctuality important for business? Answer: Always! The importance of being on time is taught to us from a very young age. It should be no surprise, then, that lessons in punctuality stay relevant throughout our lives and work. Punctuality informs many aspects of Executive Presence. Being on time helps you to establish a good reputation and allows others to trust you. When you are punctual, your professional image appears polished and organized, rather than hurried and haphazard. Above all, it’s simply the professional standard to be consistently punctual. Yet many people…
  • How the Little Details Matter for Executive Presence

    Diane Craig
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Have you ever noticed how much subtle details can make a big difference? In the content of your work, in the way you behave and present yourself, and in your image and attire – the little details matter. Even when minor details seem inconsequential, the truth is they all contribute to the whole of your success. It is no surprise that “attention to detail” is a requirement for nearly any job and a quality of a strong candidate or employee. Here are a few of many examples of how “little details” are important, and how those in your work, behaviour, and professional image contribute to…

    Diane Craig
    29 Sep 2014 | 8:33 am
    Many post-secondary degree programs in commerce, management, and business incorporate dining etiquette training and other related seminars into their course requirements. Ranging anywhere from one afternoon session to a full course lasting several weeks, any introduction to business etiquette skills can set up young professionals for success. The only problem is, many etiquette programs seemed to be confined only to management or commerce programs. Other departments and faculties often do not acknowledge their students’ need for business etiquette training. Yet business etiquette provides…

    Anne Thornley-Brown, M.B.A. @executiveoasis
    2 Aug 2014 | 8:35 am
    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.

    I've been noticing a trend for some time that is becoming so common that it will soon be the order of the day. All too often the meeting + social activity scenario is yet another example of the trends towards substituting recreational activities for real team building. It's yet another sign that executives are missing the mark for team building.

  • 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…

    Whether you call it charisma, confidence or compelling leadership, executive presence is the new corporate “it” factor. We’re talking about more than making a great first impression. Presence is multifaceted, builds over time, and is reflected in everything you say, feel and do. In today’s competitive business environment, executive presence can make or break your ability to influence others during periods of uncertainty and change. It encourages people to seek you out and opens doors. The concept of presence is nebulous for most people, but we all have it to a degree—and we know it…

      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…

    Bullies and power-grabbers As this wonderful graphic from Hugh McLeod says: The world will conspire to make you less than you are, so decide what you are going to do about it, then act. Amen. 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.

    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!

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.

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.

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…

Time well spent if you are on the course with a prospect or client. Where else would you have their undivided attention for an extended window of time? Especially given that most business meetings last one to two hours in total. Even so, millennials (75 million people born between 1980 and 2000) are not buying into the game.
