Vivid Vision – Where, Not How.

by admin on July 04, 2016

Tweet One of the best parts of creating a Vivid Vision is the chance it gives you to tear off the shackles of reality and logic and fantasize about your future. But often, successful entrepreneurs have a hard time tapping into their creative side. The pragmatic, logical thought patterns that made them successful don’t allow ...

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. But I think this question is flawed for a whole other reason. In our fast paced world, how on earth can you ...

Sharing is Good

by admin on June 13, 2016

Tweet I have a friend who writes screenplays in his spare time. He swears he’s always just on the cusp of writing Hollywood’s next big blockbuster. But he also admits it’s a long, hard, uphill journey to get there. The problem is he always takes that journey alone. This friend shares a common fear that ...

Recession Tip: Give Everyone A Raise

by admin on June 06, 2016

Tweet   Make raises one hundred percent commission based, but give everyone a stake in finding new business. Even accounting and IT teams can find clients, so create an upside for them, too.  When everyone in your company has a stake in the outcome and can make more money by bringing in clients or employees, ...

If You Build It Great, They Will Come

by admin on April 25, 2016

Tweet Any time I do keynote speaking events in a city that isn’t New York or London, a lot of leaders complain to me that their metro area lacks top-tier talent. This always makes me laugh. “There is plenty of talent out there,” I say, “they just don’t want to work for you!” Google is ...

Employees’ Personal Dreams

by admin on July 09, 2010

Tweet A few years ago, I read a book called The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly, and it blew me away. The general premise that I took away from this four hour business-changing read is that if you care more about your employees’ personal goals than the company work they are doing, they’ll go through ...

What Really Motivates Employees…

No, YOU Find THEM!

by admin on March 06, 2010

Tweet The best potential employees aren’t looking for a job because they’ve already got one. That’s why you have to poach them. In close to thirty years of my professional life, I’ve only had two job interviews. The rest of the time I was poached by one company while working for another. I always advise ...

Attn: Entrepreneurs – Want a Free Diamond?

by admin on January 29, 2010

Tweet   Every company has them.  Most CEOs don’t know who they are.  In fact most companies miss the diamonds sitting right in front of them. Instead of going outside your company and recruiting people, companies need to really get to know their own people first.  Every company has diamonds in the rough. The other ...

How To Win Friends & Upstage Your Prof

by admin on November 23, 2009

Tweet In my second year of university I took an organizational behavior course. One day my professor was teaching us how to hire people. I remember thinking, “This is stupid. It’s all textbook stuff that he’s just reading to us. I’ll bet he’s never interviewed or hired anyone.” So I threw my hand up and ...
