ListenA Let’s Listen Up.Lis­ten­ing to the other per­son may be hard to do if you don’t care to lis­ten. That sounds like a pretty straight for­ward of state­ment doesn’t it? But what if you really intend to lis­ten to the other per­son? Do you know if you’re a good listener?

See if you’re guilty of any, if not all, of these:

eye contact6 217x300 The Importance of Eye ContactHere’s a sce­nario. You’ve just met some­one and you appear to be hav­ing a nice con­ver­sa­tion. The topic of dis­cus­sion looks to be a joint area of inter­est for you and the per­son you’re speak­ing with. How­ever, you notice that through­out the con­ver­sa­tion, the per­son is not look­ing at you but more so look­ing over your shoul­der or to their left and to their right. It’s pretty clear that the per­son is not giv­ing their undi­vided atten­tion to the con­ver­sa­tion. Read more

success 300x237 51 Amazing Articles on Leadership and Success in LifeWith  hun­dreds of thou­sands of dif­fer­ent arti­cles out on the world wide web, it can be extremely dif­fi­cult to know which one to read. Being a life­long stu­dent of lead­er­ship, I attempt to read as many arti­cles on the sub­ject as pos­si­ble. Under­stand­ing that there are so many good arti­cles out there on it, I wanted to share some of my recent favorites.  Many of these are quick reads and have pow­er­ful nuggets of wis­dom for any leader to digest. These are not the only good arti­cles out there on lead­er­ship and suc­cess in life of course, but they are worth read­ing and I believe will help any­one who wishes to improve them­selves, their busi­ness and the qual­ity of life for them as well as those they share time with.

Increasing Likeability

ILikeYOU3 300x178 Increasing LikeabilityWe all know there are many great blogs out in the online world of the inter­net. One of my per­sonal favorites is Guy Kawasaki’s blog. Through his blog, he releases many tid­bits of wis­dom and knowl­edge. In addi­tion to being the co-founder of Alltop.com (an “online mag­a­zine rack” of pop­u­lar top­ics on the web) and the pre­vi­ous “chief evan­ge­list” of Apple, he is also the author of ten books includ­ing Enchant­ment, Real­ity Check and The Mac­in­tosh Way. Accord­ing to Guy, when it comes to being suc­cess­ful in life, your like­abil­ity is a key fac­tor. Regard­less of one’s age, nation­al­ity, knowl­edge or expe­ri­ence, how like­able they are will deter­mine how effec­tive they will be in most sit­u­a­tions. What are ways in which you can increase your like­abil­ity? Read more

That New Year’s Resolution

NewYear1 That New Year’s ResolutionA new year has begun and a count­less list of New Year’s res­o­lu­tions have been made by many. A large num­ber of those res­o­lu­tions won’t last the month! OK, I admit I tend to be opti­mistic about peo­ple (because many will tell me that most New Year’s res­o­lu­tions don’t last the first week).  Res­o­lu­tions are great deci­sions that peo­ple usu­ally com­mit to in order to change their life or the life of some­one else for the bet­ter. So why do so many “for­get” or “lose track of” what­ever it is they said they were going to do? I’m sure you’ve never been one of those peo­ple. 😉 Admit it. We’re all guilty of not com­mit­ting to the res­o­lu­tions we’ve sup­pos­edly com­mit­ted to. But why is that? It’s simple…a sin­cere pas­sion for it is miss­ing. It’s so much eas­ier to com­mit to a change that can help you fol­low your passion…whatever that pas­sion may be. Read more
