I believe it was the late marketer/author Marc Gobe who said it best, “A brand lives in how its communicated.” The converse of that is also true, that brands die because of how they are communicated.

Last week, I gave you the stark news that the holidays are over and we arrived at “the morning after.” As a result, and maybe you’ve felt it too, the “So Now What?” moment is here.
I trust you all had a good, relaxing time with family and friends throughout the holidays. One of the joys of consulting is developing professional friendships you know will last a lifetime. For my first blog of 2015, I want to thank and acknowledge John Mina, Managing Partner, Willis Group Holdings, for providing the title. John has […]

I’ve just put up our Christmas Tree, placed the poinsettias around our home and have settled in to write my holiday blog.

While overt cases are easy to spot, many teams have silent bullies, the people who subtly coerce and make demands of others, thinking this behavior is acceptable. […]
I observe between 60 to 100 executives per year as they hone their consulting/advising skills. I am always amazed and impressed with the ones who have the innate ability to quiet themselves so that their audience has time to process and respond. They resist the temptation to interrupt with more information. I need to see more […]
“I object!” Your clients are probably not that direct with your team. But often, clients will question your recommendations or the direction your team is suggesting. How well do they handle those situations?
