How to Improve Your Managing Skills

At one point or another in your career, you have probably encountered the nightmare boss. The one who looks over your shoulder while you work. The one who asks for a report just as when you are about to clock out. The nightmare boss is the paragon of micromanaging.

In an objective viewpoint, managing is never an easy job. It takes skill…

Recharge Your Positive Thinking and Succeed

What Your Business Reading List Should Look Like

Everyone needs to know where to turn to for help and that goes for every small business owner. At every turn we make a dozen decisions in a day and for extra challenging ones, we sit on it, even consult a mentor, or a friend.

What Sets Women Apart in Leadership Positions

Although women are viewed as under represented in leadership positions, there has been a 47% jump in the number of women in the workforce. Data from the United States Department of Labor shows a 51% rise of women in management positions. However, this progress has been slow to come to fruition.

Value-Driven Leadership

Leadership is not an easy task! Especially when you want to employ a value-driven leadership in your activities. It was (and still is) one thing that I had always in my mind when I had to lead a project and especially in my first steps! It was something that I repeated again and again, as my personal mantra, to help me focus on the important issues of the project at hand! And it is something that became a sort of a habit of mine!…

Are you breaking the law [of the learner]?


We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn. | Peter Drucker

In his classic book, The Seven Laws of Teaching, John Milton Gregory said, "The learner must attend with interest to the material being learned." He called that…

10 Keys of Empowerment

Some days are not easy! Nor are “user-friendly“! Such days, can bring you many more challenges, while you still have to cope with the “ordinary” things! You still have to go to your work, to pay one or more bills, to get the kids from school (or to take them there!), to find time for some reading, to go in the gym, to visit a friend, to see a movie, to meet with your parents, etc. The list never…

Yesterday's Success is the Biggest Detriment to Tomorrow's

The post title is a quote from John Maxwell who appeared on Dave Ramsey's radio show on Friday, November 14. It's a powerful warning against complacency. I've seen great people implode after years of success, blinded by a sense of invincibility. Coming from a military background, we studied a concept called the…

Weak Moments are Keys to Becoming Strong

Scott Speight is the guest of this episode. Scott, like most of us, is a very common man struggling with many of the same issues that we might have.  He doesn't claim to be perfect and he certainly doesn't have all the answers.  Scott has been fortunate in his life to make a ton of mistakes and fail at a lot of things.  Yes, he did say fortunate.  You see, Scott believes that the only way to be successful at anything you do, is to fail a few times…
