generational1 300x300 Leading and the Multigenerational FactorIf you’re in the work­force today you’ve prob­a­bly expe­ri­enced mis­un­der­stand­ings that occur due to peo­ple being of dif­fer­ing gen­er­a­tions. You may not know or believe that mis­un­der­stand­ings can occur due to peo­ple being of dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions, but they do and it’s sim­ply a fact of life. This sim­ple fact is prob­a­bly more impor­tant today than ever before and here’s why. For the first time in human his­tory, we have four sep­a­rate gen­er­a­tions work­ing together in soci­ety. Each gen­er­a­tion has its own char­ac­ter­is­tics, strengths, likes and dis­likes, and work­ing style. Read more

TalkToYourself Hey! Are You Actually Talking to Yourself?Do you ever find your­self talk­ing to your­self? Either out loud or qui­etly in your mind? A lot of peo­ple asso­ciate talk­ing to your­self as more than a lit­tle strange. Some even say that if you talk to your­self, you’re just a lonely per­son with no real friends and that you may need to seek psy­chi­atric coun­sel­ing. But I don’t agree with that. I don’t even agree with any­one who has really any­thing neg­a­tive to say about talk­ing to your­self. The rea­son being that any­one who has a healthy mind will find them­selves talk­ing to them­selves more often than not. But what does that really say about a per­son? Read more

PersonalEnergyBattery2 Renew Your Energy We all have a bat­tery pack within us that helps to sus­tain our per­sonal energy through­out each day. Nope, I’m not talk­ing about the meal we have in the morn­ing with that fresh cup of cof­fee or tea, although that is a part of the over­all energy equa­tion. I’m talk­ing about the per­sonal energy each one of us has when it comes to just going about the day. Either at work or at a base­ball game or the sort, when our per­sonal energy is charged, you feel good. You feel that you can do good work, enjoy game you’re watch­ing, or keep up with a group con­ver­sa­tion.  But when your per­sonal energy is down, you find your­self get­ting eas­ily irri­tated, your con­cen­tra­tion becomes more dif­fi­cult to main­tain, your inter­est in doing some­thing begins to be lack­ing.

Man­ag­ing vs. Lead­ing. I’ve heard many things and read many arti­cles about being a man­ager ver­sus being a leader. At the same time there have been many arti­cles and sem­i­nars on what I’ll call the com­po­nents of a man­ager and the com­po­nents of a leader.

Being a leader. Is it the same as being a man­ager? Is being a good man­ager the same as being a good leader?  What does coach­ing and the abil­ity to coach mean when it comes to being a good man­ager? When it comes to being a good leader? What does guid­ing have to do with lead­er­ship? With man­ag­ing With direct­ing? A man­ager has to know how to plan, orga­nize, direct and con­trol but a leader may not know how to plan, orga­nize,  direct and con­trol. Yet they are still a leader! Read more

It Seems like Everyone has a Blog These Days

Blogs2 It Seems like Everyone has a Blog These DaysIt seems like there are many peo­ple who have some sort of blog these days doesn’t it. Every time you go online either to check your email or to look up some­thing, we get bom­barded with infor­ma­tion about the “How to Make a Six Fig­ure Income from Home” or “Ger­bils and their Own­ers Forum”.

For those of you who are skep­ti­cal or dare I say cyn­i­cal about peo­ple who have a blog and their intents, I say don’t be. Yes, there are plenty of get rich quick schemes and shys­ters out there online unfor­tu­nately, but there is also plenty of great infor­ma­tion out there on just about every sub­ject a per­son is inter­ested in. Much of this infor­ma­tion is con­tained within blogs. Read more
