What Should Managers Look For In A Mentor?

Positivity may not be the most important factor Image Credit: Brian Ujiie In order to become better managers, we all realize that there are a number of ways to make this happen. We can go seek manager training and try to develop the manager skills that we know that we need. However, there is another way to go about becoming better: get a mentor. If you decide to go this route, right off the bat you’ll be faced with a difficult question: what should you look for in a mentor? Wha...

Position Power You gain power based on your formal position in the organization. The chain of command gives you power over the people below.

What To Say When You Don’t Know the Answer

“I don’t know” is one of the scariest phrases in the English language. Especially if you have to say it in front of a crowd. But chances are, if you present often, you’ll eventually be asked a question to which you don’t have an answer. And it can be embarrassing. But it doesn’t have to be if you handle it well. Here are some strategies for dealing with those tough situations. Don’t Fake an Answer If you were to lie to your audience, chances are, most of them wouldn’t be able to tell. Study a...

Secrets To Moderating A Panel Session

The best panel sessions are the ones where good ideas are exchanged Image Credit: NHS Confederation As speakers, we are seen as being skillful at all types of speeches. Although we may generally see speaking as writing a speech and then getting up on a stage and delivering that speech, it turns out that due to the importance of public speaking there are many different forms that speaking can take. One of the more common ones is being asked to moderate a panel session. The people on the pan...

Time for Experts

In this novel crisis, we in media and online need to shift much of our attention away from trying to eradicate disinformation (and how’s that going?) to spend more of our time and resources once again finding and amplifying good information — authoritative information from experts. That is why I am maintaining and immersing myself in my COVID Twitter list of 500 epidemiologists, virologists, physicians, researchers, NGOs, and selected specialist journalists. I have been taking in their c...

The next net: expertise

The net is yet young and needs to learn from its present failures to build a better infrastructure not just for speaking but also for listening and finding that which is worth listening to, from experts and people with authority, intelligence, education, experience, erudition, good taste, and good sense. Here is a preview of one nascent example of such a system built on expertise from Samir Arora, the former CEO of Glam. Samir and I bonded a dozen years ago over the power of networks, wh...

How A Speaker Can Moderate A Panel Discussion

A panel discussion is all about finding a way to exchange ideas Image Credit: AIGA/NY For some odd and strange reason, people seem to think that just because we can do a good job of giving a speech we’d also be able to moderate a panel discussion. You know what I’m talking about: one of those events where you get a group of people up on a stage and have them talk about something that the audience is interested in. What you may not have realized is that each one of these events has someone r...

How Do You View Your Skill Sets?

Some years ago I gave two presentations in the same week. On the Wednesday I presented to my medical billing group, more specifically about the relationship between CPT-4 codes and revenue codes. It was a fairly short presentation, about an hour, but it was well received. I can hold babies! It was also planned. I […]

Something More Than Competent

I love Toastmasters. If you want to learn to speak in public, there isn’t a better place to start. You only get better at speaking in public by speaking in public. While I was in the program, I saw some amazing transformations. You would know two other members of this club: Lewis Howes and Sarah Storer. What I didn’t like was the name of the first level of achievement. The words “competent communicator,” always struck me as not being the right name for the achievement, even if accurate. Though c...

Practice Makes Perfect

A year or so ago I was at a wedding, and a very successful doctor started talking to me. I was very impressed with this doctor and already knew of him through several people before our meeting. He was involved in some fascinating and cutting-edge research I found quite interesting. I love meeting people who are passionate about their careers because they give off so much energy. People who achieve amazing and significant success in any profession always have a lot of passion for what they do. If...

The Fifth Risk: Michael Lewis explains how the "deep state" is just nerds versus grifters

Michael Lewis is a national treasure, whose gift for explaining how finance grifters think and operate has spawned a whole genre, which he dominates with books like Liar's Poker (an insider view of the S&L crisis); The Big Short (a character-driven, crystal-clear explainer on the financial engineering that led to the 2008 crisis), and Flash Boys (the shitty math and bafflegab behind high-speed trading); and now, The Fifth Risk: an astounding and terrifying book about the experts who fill the ra...

Ad Agency Prospects are Looking for Expertise 

Agencies fail to realize the importance prospects place on having a knowledge of their industry and a positioning of expertise. Small to midsize agencies continue to promote themselves as full service, even though it’s rare for an agency to have a full service client. They use “full service” to broaden their appeal to most prospects. But these old adages are true, “a jack of all trades is master of none” and “when you try to appeal to everyone, you appeal to none.”  Isn’t it time to drop ...

Do What You Do

Anytime you step outside of your area of expertise, you risk falling down. You will be operating in a space where people know more than you and where they are smarter and better suited to do something than you are. My saga of wisdom, gained at the expense of my bank account, started when I was at a seminar selling SEO products for a well-known motivational personality. He believed the financial crisis was not really over. As part of this talk, he told people that the financial system as we know ...

A Fresh Look at How to Market Your Ad Agency for New Business

Stop selling your services, that’s not what prospects are buying. Agency business development programs are too often sales focused. They’re built around outbound, interruptive sales tactics designed to start engagements with prospective clients. The prospects have little, if any, awareness of the agency or how they’re different from their competitors. Success in “selling the agency” is proving to be extremely difficult. And when business development isn’t successful, they think the sensibl...

The Collision of Expertise and Content Marketing

Content marketing is a great vehicle to attract attention especially if you are a SMB owner with half way decent writing skills. Yet sometimes it has the potential of creating a collision between your expertise and your message or content.

3 Ways Your Experience Can Help You Sell Your Services

One of my favorite sayings, often repeated by my granny, was that she didn’t get gray hair lazing around in the sun. It was mostly directed at my dad whenever he tried to trick her into believing something. I’ve been at the receiving end a couple of times, too. What it basically means is this: one doesn’t reach a ripe old age without gaining some kind of experience. Experience is a wonderful thing; you gain it in happy as well as sad times. You gain it as an employee or an entrepreneur. You gai...
