New business development must always be top of mind in business. Often I find too many salespeople acquiesce to the immediate/knee-jerk reaction of a potential client: “We don’t have a need for that right now.” Potential clients say this because they actually don’t know they have a need and/or feel they’re covered. But many times, they […]

When most people think about client communication, they picture a presentation with slides, charts, bullet points, etc. However, most people I consult with rarely given a “formal” presentation.

Spring brings about many changes that are apparent all around us. It is a time for the earth to make a fresh start as winter becomes a distant memory. For many, it’s a time for contemplating their career and assessing whether where they are today is where they want to be for the long-term future. […]

It’s a divorce, business style. For the leader, departures like these are quite painful and force the leader to do a post mortem in haste. What […]
Recently, I have been working with quite a few CEOs, synthesizing important messages and distinctions about their respective organizations. Content is king, of course, but too much of a good thing can dilute a message to the point that is loses all meaning. This is where the power of three comes into play! Connect with Your Message […]
A few days ago, I visited with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. She told me the reason for the longer duration between visits was due to a brain tumor she had recently removed. Needles to say, I was floored. Though I became quite emotional, I restrained myself in order to begin my […]
