The Key to Good Communication

by admin on October 03, 2016

Tweet A good friend of mine once asked me if I was “arguing to be right, or trying to be understood?” I ask myself that often – not because I argue a lot – but to remind myself that the key to good communication is listening to what people have to say, not telling them ...

by admin on September 05, 2016

Tweet Chances are you’ve built a nice office for yourself. It’s comfortable space filled with everything you need to get your job done, whether it’s your laptop or pictures of your family when you need a bit of motivation.

Tweet How truly focused are you… try using “Pomodoros” – I use an App called “Focus Time” so I can focus like this guy does – in short focused blocks… I used to rock climb a lot 20 years ago and the only thing you can think about while climbing, is climbing.  However, in the ...

Think Ahead (But Don’t Get Ahead of Yourself)

by admin on June 20, 2016

Tweet We’ve all been in job interviews and fielded the inevitable “Where do you see yourself in five years?” question. It’s a tough one to answer without appearing too ambitious or too complacent.

Learn From Yourself First…

Tweet Before you blame someone else.  Before you blame the market.  Before you blame the economy.  Before you give all the reasons why someone or something else was at fault, my favorite trait of top leaders, is their ability to blame themselves first. Introspection – is the examination of your own contribution to the problem. ...

Fire Some of Your Customers

by admin on February 04, 2016

Tweet Eighty percent of your results come from twenty percent of your clients – as a business coach, I always advise CEO’s to at least fire the bottom twenty percent of your clients (they’re sucking up eighty percent of your time). Feels odd to be thinking about getting rid of some of your revenues at ...
