Succession planning is often found on the back burner, and with it, a focus on retention. This makes zero sense. Succession planning is a vital part of keeping a business running with as few hiccups as possible,… Continue

Lion vs. Gazelle …
Every morning in Africa, A gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up.
It knows it must out run the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It does not matter whether you are a lion or gazelle, when the sun comes up you had better start running. – Jim Rea

Generally people believe in the axiom that says, “You should take life as it happens”. Some use it to justify their inaction or lethargy. Some people even lie dormant expecting the life to work miracles for them. How many people are there who say, Come on, let us try and work to make… Continue

What are we to make of such high numbers of temporary… Continue

It's a few minutes to midnight and I find myself suddenly stricken with a sense of dread. I haven't done my daily plan for tomorrow! We've all heard the old industry axiom of planning your next day before you leave your desk each evening. The fact is, it's so important (for me at least). It never fails. If I don't plan my day, I still manage to get a few things done, but it's never even close to what I achieve when I take the time to create a plan. With all of the opportunities to get side… Continue

So, as I cannot claim to be an expert or an avid sports fan, I must admit that I did not know about this “Letter to Cleveland Fans” prior to my coworker Mike sending it over to… Continue

“You now have to decide what ‘image’ you want for your brand. Image means personality. Products, like people, have personalities, and they can make or break them in the market place.” – David Ogilvy
A lot has been said in the past few years about personal branding. A term introduced in the early 80´s by Al Ries and Jack Trout in their book: "Positioning: The Battle for your Mind". In chapter 23 Ries and Trout point that you can benefit by using positioning strategy to advance… Continue
