Creating Win - Win Relationships for 2009

Posted on January 5, 2009 at 1:36pm 0 Comments

In spite of our amazing technological advance, the work of an

organization is still accomplished by people. It is people who

interface with the customer, make the product, deliver the

service, plan and coordinate how work gets done, improve

processes and systems, ensure quality, and return a profit.

Technology has provided us with better tools, but it is still

people who do the work of an organization and are ultimately

responsible for its… Continue

Leadership to Leadershift

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 5:11pm 1 Comment

Leadership and Leadershift.

What is the difference in the two words? This is not a

trick question. It is the "P" and the "FT". In

Leadership, it is central to a person - the leader. In

Leadershift, the focus is on finishing together. In other

words, we want to shift the leader's vision to the entire

organization. This is exactly the goal of High

"…who would you fight to keep?"

Posted on December 3, 2008 at 6:10pm 2 Comments

"You have two employees, both technically competent, but you

can keep just one of them. What abilities or behaviors do you

look for to determine which employee will stay and which one

will go?"

There was remarkable agreement to that question from CEO's,

managers, supervisors, human resource directors, employers,

and business owners.

In fact it came down to eight high performance abilities to

determine which employee to hire,… Continue

More thoughts on Sales Skills are Life Skills

Posted on November 25, 2008 at 1:16pm 0 Comments

I found the replies to my last post interesting...

Rayanne's comment went straight to my point; how many people have that negative view of "sales"? Yet, if we communicate at all - we sell. (see Sales Skills are Life Skills)

It is definitely not about "selling someone" and I understand where Ben is coming from. That being said, to lump all into "you Americans" is not exactly fair. I think Jim's point lends to motivation and persistence. Our solutions may not help everyone.… Continue

Sales Skills are Life Skills

Posted on November 24, 2008 at 4:13pm 4 Comments

I love the art of selling. LOVE IT. When I first entered

the field of sales, the one thing I quickly grew to

appreciate was the fact that anything I did to increase

my ability in selling also increased my ability in life.

Sales skills are life skills.

"There's a born salesman!" I have yet to read, or hear

on the evening news, of a lady who gave birth to a

sales person. Or an attorney, or doctor, or for that

matter an embezzler or swindler. Birth is… Continue

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to

Thank you for your time.
