I wrote Sales Yoga to help solve this problem once and for all. Sales Yoga is a “collaborative approach to meeting the shared needs of a buyer and seller.”

When done right, the…

Compelling question to ask at the interview (1)

So the interview is going well with you in truly fine form, and suddenly there is a lull. It can happen and will on occasions. The said lull can even be manufactured in order to test your interpersonal and communication skills.

Responsibility- Or is it Response Ability #sourcing, #conduct, #socialinteraction, #thedanieljsmith

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well. One of the more interesting things about long weekends (besides the copious amounts of food!) is that it allows most of us to hit the cosmic "reset" button and re-focus the way we approach work. Simply having a couple of extra days to mentally work through your problems, especially now that we are moving into the Christmas period, allows for a re-dedication of both mind and body to…

What the Hunger Games taught me about the job search

The other night I saw The Hunger Games with my daughter and one of her friends. When we got into a discussion about the various scenes in the movie, we all agreed that Rue’s death was the saddest…oh, I hope I’m not giving away too much of the movie.

There’s another scene I would classify as more bloody and…
