    While doing cardio the other day I was reading a Facebook post from a friend that said, “To find TRUE love you must first LOVE YOURSELF unconditionally”… That made me think… How many, because of the romantic movies and love songs, take the age old saying “follow your heart” as a “literal” expression that is undeniably true and factual? With a background as a Professional Coach you can understand that I take the statement “follow your heart” to almost limitless extremes. In coaching and training both myself and athletes it is, and was, the TRUEST measure of the…

    In a recent conversation, a good friend of mine was sharing the details of her previous day. She said it was a day filled with all kinds of very different and unanticipated challenges – both on the personal and professional fronts. This was very different from her normal day. 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.

They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. Leaders don’t show emotions. We hear lots of reasons. It’s unbecoming; it undermines authority. For women, it says they’re not tough enough. The reasons go on and on. It’s a cop-out. The role of emotional maturity in leadership is crucial. Success in life and…

  • It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ’n’ roll: A review of “Women’s Road To Rock Guitar”

    Madalyn Sklar
    25 Aug 2014 | 11:14 am
    By Martina Fasano of Playing With Chaos I have played the guitar since I was 16 years old. I took a long hiatus between the ages of 24-34 respectively, to “grow up” and get a “career” (my high school guidance counsellor’s words, not mine). The thing with playing an instrument is that it is NOT like riding a bike. If you don’t practice, you’re not maintaining your skills, you’re getting worse. If you don’t believe me, try taking a ten-year break from your craft like I did. When I was learning to play the guitar, I was lucky to take lessons for four years from one of…

    It all started with a free webinar I hosted back in December. I knew Martina Fasano, a musician/music blogger, from the GoGirls Twitter chat (#ggchat). She’s a regular on there, always friendly and eager to share valuable information.  She stood out to me because she was more than a musician. She was a rock music blogger with a cool Twitter profile image. [Note: the image she has on there now is ever cooler!] Martina recently took my #TwitterSmarter online class. She zipped through the 4 modules in less than a week. What impressed me is that she went right to work. She followed my…

It is also wonderful to see how a small group of business owners, who do not know each other, start off relatively quietly and as the Business Success Club progresses they become more and more confident with the rest of their group. We have run three Business Success Clubs now and here are some comments from a selection of the previous participants “This has been such a very useful course and has made me focus on both my personal and business goals, as previously I had not made…

    Izzy Justice
    18 Aug 2014 | 5:32 am
    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 am fortunate enough to have a profession where having authentic conversations is part of my job. I hear many stories from very accomplished people. What they have in common is well researched and documented already and of the many shared attributes of these folks, I enjoy listening to that ‘one experience’ they all have after which, their self confidence is impenetrable. It may waiver from time to time with failure and success, but the belief that they are special enough to do great things is forever imprinted in their DNA. What these stories have in common is what I call “the…

  • Seeking Clarity vs Advice

    Izzy Justice
    7 Jul 2014 | 6:54 am
    There is a difference between seeking clarity and seeking advice. Both are invaluable exercises in critical thinking and the decision-making process. Some of the distinctions are obvious. We seek advice from parents, friends, coaches, attorneys, and consultants for example. They tell us what to do. We also seek clarity from the same folks as a precusor to the advice. In the personal develpment space, and especially in the context of important relationships we have personally and professionally, the lines get blurred quite a good bit. It often is the case that in this context, many skip the…

    16 Jun 2014 | 7:46 am
    For some reason, when I ask younger professionals what they need to do to be better, they can quickly provide an exhaustive list. This is to their credit. For folks over 40 or so, the response to the same question becomes challenging. People tend to take longer to respond, their lists are much shorter, and their desire to actually be better seems far less than their junior counterparts. Why is this? Is it possible that there just is not that much to learn after 40? Or is it because after 40, it is just too hard to either learn new stuff or to let go of older stuff you know you need…

    Is the idea of leaving your business as well as your country to see the world absurd? As business owners, we are heads-down focused on our business and driven to make it better. Leaving our business is inconceivable. Or is it? Remember back to your childhood. On sunny days, Mom and Dad made you go outside and play. Before there were play dates, you went to a field with your friends and a ball and decided, what game would you play? Whose team were you on? And what position would you play? Wasn’t it fun?

    What Makes a Book Great? What makes a book great? You have been told many times that the most successful people, the greatest leaders and innovators who ever lived, are/were voracious readers. Many of these accomplished people seldom disclosed the names of the books in their personal libraries because that was a private matter. However, there is no shortage of lists of the best books of all time to read, but many of those lists are very subjective. For instance, Amazon published a list of 100 Must-Read Books, and as a powerful and well-known organization, many will pay close attention to that…

    The Practical Leader

    Jim Clemmer
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Time is the great equalizer. We all get exactly the same amount of it every day. What a leader does with his or her daily time allotment distinguishes good, bad, and extraordinary leaders. Many less effective leaders are sucked into the busyness trap trying to keep up with their daily deluge of e-mails and stream of constant meetings. They lose control of their time and lose control of their lives. In a recent interview, I outlined a classic study on leadership time effectiveness and discussed how poorly run meetings waste time.

Recently he gave up most of his weekend to deal with a Client emergency. The next week his manager “thanked him” with an expensive bottle of wine. This breaks one of the most basic rules of giving recognition: tailor it to the individual. For example, some people love public recognition. Others consider being centered out and put on stage a form of punishment. Here are other common recognition pitfalls and traps: Random Recognition To keep…

    E-mail continues to be a huge challenge for many leaders. In our workshops, leaders often assess how much time they spend dealing with technical, management, and leadership issues and where they’d prefer to invest their time (“Check Your Balance with the Performance Triangle“). Every poll we’ve ever taken with participants shows that 80 – 90% want to increase the time they spend in leadership. As discussions go deeper into what’s getting in the way of leadership, e-mail is quickly identified as one of the biggest problems. Most leaders complain about hours of…

It is actually using our own emotional awareness in a more focused way. It is fascinating that people don’t consider the fact that their emotional state, affects the way they communicate. And what they communicate makes someone else feels something too. And so the chain of communication and emotions continue. Click here to view the embedded video.

    The logical Levels of NLP form an excellent framework to do NLP and life coaching. We determine our values, set our goals, design tasks, milestones and propel ourselves forward into change. What is important to keep in mind is that change has a logical hierarchy … not just for NLP based change, but for any change. It is ideal to know these logical levels and to ask the right (meta model) questions in designing an action plan. The logical levels of NLP from the lowest level to the highest level: 1. Environment 2. Behavior 3. Capabilities/skills 4. Beliefs and values 5. Identity 6. Purpose…

    For so many of us, email supplies constant tasks throughout the workday. No matter what projects we have lined up or meetings we have scheduled, there is always the possibility of an email adding yet another task to our growing to-do lists. But instead of checking email every time a new message pops into our inboxes, what if we had set (and limited) times to read emails throughout the day? This emerging trend is helping some professionals to manage the constant distraction of emails and to become more focused on tasks at hand. Could it work for you?

Workplace parties can be wonderful occasions to recognize major life milestones and enjoy relaxed time with co-workers. However, celebrations also risk becoming financially taxing and an overwhelming time commitment. Here are a few ways to keep workplace celebrations jovial and under control. Don’t Make Every Day a Birthday. Unless you have a very small office or department, you do not need to celebrate every…
  • Bright Ideas: Incite Creativity in the Workplace

    Diane Craig
    5 Aug 2014 | 9:21 am
    Creative workplace environments should not be limited to so-called “creative” industries such as graphic design, film, or the arts. In fact, creativity should be present in any workplace, no matter the industry or department. Whether you work in HR, sales, or finance, creativity must be encouraged for your company to advance. Here are a few ideas to foster creativity in the workplace. Encourage a collaborative environment. In many cases, the saying “two heads are better than one” often rings true in a workplace. Staff members often bring different academic backgrounds and various…
  • Internal Communication and Respect: Just as Important As External Relations

    Diane Craig
    29 Jul 2014 | 8:23 am
    Have you ever been to a shop or a restaurant and spoken with a friendly, helpful manager – only to watch that manager turn around and speak rudely to his or her employees? At that moment, did the store or restaurant suddenly lose its credibility? Think about this situation and apply it to your own company: does your organization respect its employees as much as its external clients and partners? Even for companies that prioritize customer service and external relations, it is essential to foster positive internal communication and respect for employees. Without a strong internal foundation,…

As such, it is so important that you constantly work to build an excellent one. Of course, life is also full of mistakes and learning can be a process of trial-and-error.

  • Team Building: How to Avoid Team Building Gone Bad

    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.

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.

  • 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…
  • Empathy in Everyday Conversations

    Patsi Krakoff
    5 Aug 2014 | 1:47 pm
    In everyday conversations – whether with friends, family or coworkers – most of us have an empathy deficit – or at least we don’t express it enough. Everyone wants to be seen, heard and appreciated. But not that many people – especially in workplaces – know how to communicate empathy so that others feel seen, heard and appreciated. Most of us are too focused on conveying our own messages. “Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus…
  • Power Communications: Master the Unconscious

    Patsi Krakoff
    22 Jul 2014 | 6:58 am
    Most communication is unconscious. You may think you’re delivering clear and consistent messages based on your words, but unconscious nonverbal behaviors are key to communicating with power. Evolution has given our unconscious minds the ability to handle most incoming cues automatically and rapidly, thus freeing our conscious minds to make complex decisions. Much of this activity occurs instantaneously, nonverbally and unconsciously. Without the participation of your unconscious mind, you’d react too slowly to avoid danger, would have a hard time relating to others and would be unable to…

You may have a case of “brain clutter.” When you’re feeling stressed and unproductive, your first instinct might be to look for a better system: A better system to manage your time A better system to manage your projects A better system to manage your life Before you blame the system, first check to see if you have excessive mental friction and brain clutter.

  • Confident Leaders Know that Titles do not Create Leadership

    Suzi Pomerantz
    29 Aug 2014 | 11:29 am
    Have you ever noticed that leadership beliefs dictate leadership behaviors?  I’d go so far as to say that leadership presence is generated from your leadership beliefs…both the conscious and the unconscious. Recently a client asked me for my definition of leadership.  My response to her was: “Real Leadership is not a function of position or role, rather it shows up when a mission-driven, passionate, committed influencer creates space in which results happen through others.” When leaders operate from beliefs aligned with the definition above, they move mountains,…

Enjoy! Summary points from Marshall: Pick great people, and your process will always work. Work with great people! Don’t make it about yourself and your own ego and how smart you are, make it about those great people you work with and how proud you are of them and how hard they work.

  • JUST ASK!

    Suzi Pomerantz
    20 Aug 2014 | 2:36 pm
    Whether applied to leadership, to business development, or to regular life, the answer to most of what you have been wondering about can be simply garnered if you’d just ask.  Of course, it’s tricky, often, to identify whom to ask and what exactly to ask, but it’s so surprising how often we overlook the simple “just ask” strategy in favor of more complex, indirect, circuitous, and ineffective routes! Elizabeth Gilbert sums it up beautifully in her post on HuffingtonPost: Nearly 800 years ago, the Persian mystic poet Rumi wrote, “You must ask for what you…

    Suzi Pomerantz
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:38 pm
    Accountability is something that comes up in every organization, and among many leaders who struggle to find ways to have their teams demonstrate consistent accountability.  The bottom line is that real accountability is a personal choice, and many people find it easier to blame others or perceive themselves to be a victim of circumstances rather than empower themselves to personally alter their response to their own circumstances.  Accountability, like leadership, is a choice.  The concept is articulated deftly by Dr. Hawkins, author of the book I: Reality and Subjectivity. “Beliefs…

    First impressions count. We judge books superficially. That’s reality. In this age of streaming media, instant downloads, and lightning speed communications, to get someone’s attention, you really have to stand out. You have to pique interest from the start—and then, it’s up to your content, your work, to keep them hooked. You may have penned the best business strategy book, the most effective diet tips, or the most inspirational memoir. But without the right title, without the right hook?

    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…

    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…

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…

    18 Jun 2014 | 5:00 am
    Before there were cell phones, I lived in a college dorm and had to make all my phone calls from a pay phone booth on my floor. Teenage guys are not likely to win awards for organization. So when they were on the phone and needed to make a note, they would borrow a pencil and write on the wall. Most of the information on the wall was of no use to anyone other than the person who wrote it. I had no use for the zip code of my wall mate’s grandparents or the office hours of the dean in the Physics Department. However, there was lifesaving information (about 3 things) hidden on the wall for all…

First Norman had to buy in and that took a while. He did not want to hurt Charlie. Then the hardship and chaos that Charlie was inflicting on the company became overwhelming.Unfortunately (or fortunately for the company) Charlie had to deal with a critical medical condition which made the transition easier. He was gone for a month. The company welcomed a critical new hire who took over most of what Charlie did. For the month that…

    So what is one to do when dealing with family transitions and situations? The first step is realizing that the transition needs to happen. The older generation needs to see that it is part of their role is to turn over the leadership of the company to capable younger leadership. It is important that they face their mortality and aging as a part of life that must be dealt with. A telltale sign of failure is when the older generation does not plan to leave. In fact they may be getting more involved. Consider the following as rules to live by if you want the transition from one generation to…

    When generational transitions in family business do not occur strategically, they can destructively impact the company as well destroy familial relations. This is called a double whammy.  Alternatively transitions between generations in a family owned company can work really well. Here is an example. Steve was a gracious CEO and leader. A couple years ago, he formally retired and turned over the company to his competent son. Steve still comes to work. He is punctually in at seven and out at eleven. On a typical day, he enters the building, says hi to everyone and they engage with him in…

    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…

Artists are musicians who we marvel at as they play a riff or sing a song that stirs our emotions. Painters who take a blank canvas and transform it into a masterpiece. Sculptors, poets, directors, potters, the list goes on with those who create art. But, if I may ask: “What is art?”  Take painters, for example, I doubt anyone would argue that painters aren’t artists. Matisse and Monet. Warhol and Wyeth.
