The PUMP Up Your Bottom Line System

Posted by:

Hey Hi Everyone,

 

Still PUMPed up? Remember what that stands for? …Passion Ultimately Means Performance.

 

As we discussed in our session on Friday, 9/9 a couple hours of throwing ideas around is hopefully informative. But it’s the long term investment of coaching your team – guiding them to implement and hone the techniques we talked about, that’s where real results (the Magic) happens. A few of you asked if there might be a way to keep a dialog going to ...

Ten Years Reflecting Life Changes

Posted by:

In honor of the tenth anniversary of September 11th, I thought it would be nice to reflect on the magnitude of that day and how it has impacted your life and the choices you have made and are making to this day.

That tragic day was a wake-up call. If you were like me it sent me into a tail spin. I felt helpless and wanted to do something, but I feared we, as a nation, were out of control. I ...

Are You Thriving … Or Just Surviving?

Posted by:

superkidLet me ask you a question, are you sailing along in your career? Or does it feel like your sail is only half way up the mast and you’re struggle to get anywhere? Do you feel you are performing at less than your maximum potential? A recent Gallup Poll said that 74% of Americans are disengaged with what they are doing for a living. The sad reality is, when it comes to their ...

Our Returning Vets are Great Hires

Posted by:

Time Magazine is showcasing what I’ve been saying for a long time. Our returning Vets from Iraq and Afganistan are “The New Greatest Generation”. Highly developed leaders that know how to focus, overcome and get it done. As one soldier noted, the life-and-death decisions he made in warfare make the decisions in the workplace pretty easy by comparison. Check out this video, but more – read the article when you can Aug. 29 2011 edition. To all my Vet friends, ...

Live Life Large

Posted by:

Well, we can live life large … full of love and happiness … or … we don’t. Forgive me, I think it’s that simple. Love the life you have… Choose to make the journey – down your life path, if not, it will raise it’s head later. Then it might be too late. LOVE,… love if you can, and love everything about where you are personally. Then things… magically fall into place. I always love that.

Love you.

Office Drama

Posted by:

Someone wrote me this last week and shared some concerns with their organization and how it was starting to affect his performance. He asked for my advice. I see this as “Office Drama”. Here’s part of what he shared.

 

Here are the issues: The company I work for is a very big operation, which involves a lot of people. I’m an introverted type of person; I like to mostly keep to myself. But I admit maybe that hasn’t served me well. However, I can honestly say ...

Are You Talking to the Right People? – Informational Interviewing

Posted by:

Informational interviewing is a wonderful way to learn more about this pathway opening up in front of you. I ask people, “Now would you buy a thousand dollar business suite without trying it on first, to see if you like it, if it’s the right color or if it even fits?” I would guess probably not unless you have so much money that it doesn’t matter to you if you waist it. But if you are like most of us ...

How Do You Find the Masses Who Can Help You?

Posted by:

Last week I ran into someone who has been in the job market for quite a while. It was great seeing him, but I was sad to see he had not landed anything yet. He is a human resources professional and has an impressive background. I’m fully aware that as a result of all the massive layoffs that have occurred over the last two and half years, HR is one of the areas that took the hardest blows. If you have fewer people – ...

30, 60, 90 Day Vision and Strategy

Posted by:

chessNegotiating successful outcomes in the workplace can and will increase your value to an organization, but a lot of people are uncomfortable with the process and don’t try it. As a result they remain silent and continue to blend into the background. I run into people all the time that see an area in their business that could reach higher levels of performance, if only their company would embrace a new vision ...

A Sobering Statistic: We are Losing too Many returning Vets to Suicide

Posted by:

Normally when I blog it’s on strategies about career planning or the job search. But I’m compelled to share with you some insight about those who have made a sacrifice and have gone to serve you, me and this country. Veteran Affairs reported a staggering statistic, an average of 18 vets commit suicide each and every day. The University of Georgia conducted a detailed analysis from state authorities for 2004 and 2005. It found that veterans were more than twice ...
