10 PR Conferences All PR Solo Pros Need to Know About in 2021

One of the keys to being a confident and savvy solo PR pro is professional development.  Yes, we know. Professional development isn’t as easy as it may have been before you went solo. There’s typically no department conference budget or boss urging you to attend the latest networking event on behalf of the company.  However, as a solo PR pro, it’s your responsibility to set yourself apart by making time for you.

2020 Hindsight: Learning for Tomorrow

So many terms come to mind to describe 2020: Unexpected. Uncertain. Uncomfortable. Distressing. And through the gyrations of the year, many leaders saw levels of agility, adaptiveness, and creativity in their organizations beyond anything they’d previously imagined. In the words of William James, “Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed”. As businesses plan for 2021, it’s a perfect time to practice 2020 Hindsight – reviewing observati...

A Chance to Start Anew

Why doesn’t the training stick? We asked ourselves that question many times. Full of hope and possibility, we’d send employees to leadership development sessions, anticipating that they’d grow into their potential. A few did; most didn’t. One day, Amy, our L&D director, had another of her glorious eureka moments—the company’s existing systems and processes were inhibiting new behaviors promoted in training from taking root. Like gardeners, we were placing our seedlings in an environment not cond...

When the Passing Storm Fades, What Next?

I currently have three types of clients. There are those who have hunkered down, waiting for the new normal to arrive. Some are muddling along, trying to keep some cash-flow going. Then, there are a few who have stabilised their business. They are now looking for opportunities amid the chaos we see in the world. Unfortunately, they are the minority. The majority are looking to bounce back. I wonder, however, what will be there at that moment of bouncing? Will they land ideally suited to a world ...

Stop Trying to Ask Good Questions

Many leadership books and coach training programs outline rules for asking good questions. Common ones include: Don’t ask closed questions. Ask open questions that start with What, When, Where, and How. Avoid Why questions. These suggestions are misleading. Coaching and asking questions are not synonymous. The opposite of giving advice is not asking questions. Even just taking a coaching approach to your leadership conversation should be a process of inquiry, not a series of questions. The inten...

The Remote Leader’s Rules for Living

The concept of leading remote employees is as old as the graveyard shift. Leaders have been for many years guiding associates who work in different locations, time zones, and work shifts. But this month we added a new wrinkle to the practice—leading remote employees who are anxious, alone and cut off from the solace of the break room banter to process their fears. What’s a leader to do? I found a unique source of advice in a June 1979 “Peanuts” comic strip I saved! Peppermint Patty asks Charlie ...
