Shut Up and Sell

In just two minutes the salesperson had gotten the client to say “yes” to giving his firm a shot at filling their needs. Had he stopped there, all would have been right and good in his world. Unfortunately, he continued to talk, extolling the features and benefits of the staffing services provided by his company. The “yes” turned into a “no” after the customer recanted, deciding to take time to think over his decision. Now that customer is buying from another firm, one I suspect whose…See More

The Dream

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.Having a dream is a powerful thing. So proved Dr. King in the life he lived and in the words he shared as an American civil rights activist. Dreams, based upon deep convictions and core beliefs, can be the basis of tremendous good in both personal and professional situations.What is the creed, the…See More

The Rush to Judgement

How easy it is to apply previous experience to current circumstances. Such was the case when I emailed colleagues last week about a trip to New York I was on as a chaperone for my son’s thespian troupe. I received responses like:“Ugh, teenagers. Good luck.”“How’d you get roped into that?”“Better you than me!”This trip was one of the most enjoyable in all my travels across the globe. And my time with these…See More

Professional Sportsmanship

Watching the Florida State football team lose to Oregon on New Year’s Day was not shocking nor disappointing, given the impressive performance of the Ducks. What was disheartening was the poor sportsmanship displayed by both teams; many of the Seminoles headed to the locker room instead of shaking hands with the victors, and several Oregon team members openly mocked Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the accusation of sexual assault that has followed him for the past year.Situations…See More

The Year to Come

Given that how we invest our attention, time, and energy each day is a choice, I offer the following Wintripisms as suggestions for the coming year:Those who pay the least demand the most. So, when choosing customers in 2015 pick the best so you can leave the rest.Avoid implementing permanent solutions to temporary problems. It’s a great way to avoid regrets later.If you want something different, do something…See More

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

Yes, I’ve borrowed this statement from the Christmas song with the same name. And this concept, as the song ran through my head (over and over again after hearing it), reminded me that each and everyone of us is an artist, trading a day of our lives for what we create each day. We receive daily “clay” in the form of opportunities, connections, conversations, and moments in time to create something of meaning.Whatever was already created this year is done, baked, and hardened. All we can do is…See More

Lean Recruiting

People are not the only ones getting on the scale as staffing and recruitment firms across the globe are trimming the fat as a catalyst for growth. Lean Recruiting initiatives across the globe are focusing leaders to eliminate wasted time, resources, energy, and effort. The results benefit everyone as clients have talented people working more quickly, candidates land better opportunities with less effort, and their providers are rewarded for their efforts while also be able to serve more…See More

The Alternative to Strategic Planning

Like a computer with a well functioning operating system, companies that perform exceptionally well year after year have a well planned Renewable Operating System (ROS). Better than a strategic plan, an ROS creates a better way of doing business with speed, agility, and reduced effort, similar to the powerful processors in today’s technical devices.The first step I initiate with every leader with whom I work to create an ROS starts with the current “code.” Just like rewriting an entire software…See More

Being Grateful and Unsatisfied

While I’m all for being grateful, especially being mindful of this during this week’s American Thanksgiving celebration, I’m not too keen on satisfaction. Satisfaction can become a trap that keeps you cemented to your doorstep, allowing competitors to grab the glory, the gusto, and even some of your market share.One of my favorite examples of this is when I asked a workshop participant, who was resistant to ideas for improving her company, if she was satisfied with her current business model,…See More

Play Big and Go Home

It’s all too easy to play the game their way. Following their rules, their pricing, their way of doing business. They are the customers, your competition, the majority of the market, and playing their game doesn’t serve most firms very well.If you’re really satisfied with playing the game their way stop reading, because this post is not for you. For the rest of you, here’s how you play the game your way:Identify five ways you could play bigger, then pick the easiest to get started.This could…See More

Avoiding Leadership Dependence

Last week I watched a common example of one individual serving as the intellect and conscience for another. It happened at Publix, our local grocery store, where my 17-year-old son Benjamin decided to apply for a job. Standing at the application kiosk was a couple, painfully going through the questions, discussing and debating each response. The woman, who was the one applying for a job, was insecure answering the questions on her own, instead, running each one by “her man” as she referred to…See More
