Facts:bullying role play
You are a senior-level employee, and you have been employed at your organization for over two years. As a result of a merger, a new Executive Director (Mary) has been named. On her first day, Mary sent out a memo highlighting her background and educational experience. Many of you noticed that although she had over 15 years of experience in management, she did not hold an advanced degree.

Your Personal Brand Starter Kit: Design Yourself and Become Essential

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

What does the term “personal brand” make you think of?

You might feel that it’s a rather self-centered concept, perhaps more “all about ME” than you’re comfortable with.

But what if personal branding is actually about knowing and understanding yourself so well that you’ll naturally reach for a higher, more rewarding standard?  And what if that meant you’d also be happier and provide more value to your employer?

At the “10,000 foot level,” having a personal brand is about:
1.    Becoming comfortable acknowledging – owning – your own skills, and
2.    Proactively defining the value you add to the organization that employs you. (more…)

Listening for Success: Free Activity

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Have you ever listened to your own thoughts … while you were listening to someone speak?

Chances are those thoughts were filled with ideas about what you were going to say as soon as they stopped speaking.  Arguments, agreements, stories about your own experience – any number of bright, beautiful thoughts and ideas take shape in your mind as you “listen” to what the other person is saying.

Studies of communication conducted as far back as 1988 show that we spend only about 25% of the time listening to someone talking.  The remaining 75% of the time is mostly filled with, yes, all those bright ideas about what we’re going to say in reply. (more…)
