Yelling: Not the Panacea We Thought

  You know I don’t have children; I have dogs. And as a long-time reader, you also know this past February, hubby and I welcomed dog number six into our family. Initially, I did a lot of loud-voiced NOs at the little puppy. (Notice how I downplayed the term yelling to the gentler ‘loud-voiced’?) And

Are You Being Heard and Understood?

Heard and Understood?  Of course, right? This quote crossed my desk on Monday, and I knew it was what I needed to share with you this week. “When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer,

Stop Talking About Your Why

What a strange title!  Why am I telling you to stop with your Why? You might have heard the name Simon Sinek. (Failed marketing guy, found a vast consulting company to bankroll his efforts. Wrote several books with intelligent people. Became the face of the new way of leading.) He is often quoted and lauded.

The Gateman in Guatemala

The Gateman in Guatemala taught me a huge lesson about my speaking and writing style, which is what I want to share. Now, some of you might want to pick those words apart and say, “Oh, you want to talk about communication.” No! I want to discuss how you convey your thoughts to others. When

The Power of Story

Earlier this week I was gobsmacked by this visual. It is brilliantly simple, isn’t it? Stories trump statistics. All. The. Time. I am sharing this because far too many of us, myself included, get stuck in certain parts of our business or professional lives. See, technology has given us way more data than we could

Flip Your ME to WE

ME to WE? Flip who? Say What? How often do you get calls or requests to try out some personality test to help you understand yourself and then have phenomenal success? I bet you answer FREQUENTLY. And how many times have you taken those tests? Probably lots – as long as they are free. I

Beware the After-Times

I am quite taken with the terms before-times and after-times.  As in pre and post-pandemic.  This week, hubby and I took the car in for some work and decided to grab a Starbucks – as walk-in customers. The place was like a massive cavern because all of the usual 30 or so tables with chairs
