Change Your Reactions

--> When you see a fight occurring between any two people (or groups of people), it is always the case that one side believes it is right about something and that the other side is therefore wrong. It could be a disagreement over a political or territorial issue, a religious belief, or something else. Countries take sides about one issue or another and entire wars commence and continue for generations–based on one country’s belief that it is right and the other is wrong. When you pick up any n...

Let’s examine some additional highlights from the report: Emerging in-demand roles: Among the range of established roles that are set to experience in...

Why You Need to Love Yourself and When You Need to Change Your Friends, Job and Life

--> Recently, I returned home from Asia on a horrible airline ticket that made four separate connections before it finally arrived in Los Angeles.

Can A Manager Recover From A Bad First Impression?

Just because you slipped up does not mean that you can’t redeem yourself Image Credit: gianstep We are all familiar with the phrase “you only get one chance to make a first impression”.

The good news is that it is possible to use your manager skills to redeem how they view you. However, as managers we need to realize that f...

So the President is a MotherF**ker??

On several occasions I've written about swearing and rhetoric as well as about expletive naming. In a recent article, Emma Byrne adds to my ideas by writing about the "scientific case for calling the president a motherf*cker."   Byrne especially likes the Rep. Rashida Tlaib's remark, noting that she used the swear word in rhetorically correct fashion.  As Byrne writes, rhetoric reveals that this kind of language signals trust and a sense of belonging--and it also "fosters closeness and s...

Concentrate on the Process, Not the Results

Some time ago, I was listening to a seminar about a company that was in the furniture business. This company decided that because it was doing so well, it should expand into the piano business, and also sell pianos. They went out and purchased a Steinway and took the piano apart to study all of the pieces. Then they made the same pieces themselves and built a piano. When they finally had built their own piano and tried to play it, nothing but thuds came out of the instrument. Discouraged, not kn...
