Here’s a list of the most common mistakes that could be costing you money:

Webster defines engage: “to mesh with.” Being with someone and failing to connect is as satisfying as hugging someone wrapped in vinyl. In helping folks engage, I’ve noticed three factors that make a difference.
You may think of company culture as something primarily affecting you as an employee. Yet the culture of a company (positive or negative) can actually affect it’s financial health.
Healthy, robust work environments create an atmosphere of enthusiasm, trust, and productivity among…

So I saw this article the other day saying that the Grammy awards were becoming irrelevant. They made this assertion because Adele won the Grammy over Beyonce. The writer further asserted that racism was involved. I don't know if this is the case or not and I certainly don't know the hearts and minds of Grammy voters. Here's what I do know. I know Beyonce is very talented and I have seen her sing spectacularly well, but if you ask me which album I'm buying, it's Adele every time. This has…Continue
Sometimes you just need to call it finished. A good friend contacted me last night with a humorous cry for help. At least I think it was humorous. He was finishing an absolutely brilliant painting. This is a piece that would have made Van Gogh proud (and I meant that!). He's a great artist and this piece was one of his best. He wasn't looking for advice. He's better than me and I don't think I could actually help him with art stuff, but this I could do. You see what he really wanted was just…Continue

Last month I was interviewed by The Iron Jen McDonough and shared some really simple steps to make this your healthiest, best year ever. One of the basic principles of my coaching is to use what I call “baby steps” – small, gradual, incremental changes rather than large, sweeping ones.
Baby steps may not seem very effective but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each small, consistently practiced change builds on the next and they create…Continue

I have often been asked to attend important meetings to observe the person with whom my employer is meeting. My job is to watch for telltale signs of the true character of the person I’m observing. This usually falls into two categories. The first is hiring and the second…Continue
Take a look at this YouTube video (“I, Pencil” video), this classic tale of how the economy works, and notice how there are entrepreneurs serving at every single step along the way even though the steps in the process are innumerable!
Watching this video will get you in the generous mood to praise the division of labor and the entrepreneurial spirit that drives this whole process from its humble beginnings all the way to the end. But the video also makes it evident that the division…Continue

Let me begin by issuing a warning before I dive into my latest book review. Don't just go to Amazon and search "Getting Naked". Oh sure, you're going to get the right book, but you'll also get a bunch of other stuff you didn't expect or want to see.
Outside of that, I give…Continue

A counseling professor told a woman in one of Larry’s lab groups, “Your tears don’t move me.” His words stunned the group, but the woman stopped crying. “Those were tears of frustration,” he explained. “They weren’t tears of brokenness.”
