I believe that most people, through their work and personal lives, want to contribute to the growth and self-actualization of others. Now is the time to make it your first AND second priority. It makes a difference, something of which I was recently reminded. I was about to initiate a coaching session with a CEO […]
“Maintain an Innovation Focus.” -McKinsey & Company This brilliant advice is important to share with you all. I believe that the more innovative you are, the more your clients will think well of you and want to follow your lead to help them recover from our global dislocation.

“What’s new?” Everything. All of your clients have been affected in some way by the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting economic shutdown.

I don’t need to tell you that these are unprecedented times. While we wait for the next normal, I’ve used this time to consider how we can be even better at connecting with clients. It’s now, perhaps more than ever, that they need us. Everyone is going at this a bit blindly, right? Well, this […]
There are so many places through the course of daily life where we have to prove who we are. Just think of the numerous times you are asked to show your credentials before boarding an airplane. Have you ever considered how much you have to show your business credentials throughout your client/customer work? A very […]
