Why Are You Working Fridays? Seriously…

by admin on November 28, 2009

I have begun to really see the power of focus in the past few years of coaching and mentoring CEOs.  It’s not about working five days a week.  It’s not about working sixty hours a week.  It is about setting goals at the start of each quarter, month, week and day to stay focused.  If ...

Yes I Do Listen…

by admin on November 27, 2009

Some say I’m not a good listener – but I sure try.  I’ve actually learned a ton about listening over the years of being a CEO coach.  I’m actually a great listener when I shut up and don’t cut people off while they are talking. This is a photo of Katie Reiach, Founder of www.SparkGroup.ca ...

Have you ever observed an athlete right before a competition? The next time you watch the Olympics take a look at the high jumpers.  You’ll see many of them standing very still just before they start running to the bar.  Then they’ll close their eyes and you’ll see their head bobbing up and down as ...

What Department Is PR In?

by admin on November 19, 2009

There is a popular misconception that PR should be considered a part of the marketing department. Believing that story is a big mistake.
