Retired and Enjoying Life (except on LinkedIn)

As part of my never-ending battle with fake LinkedIn profiles, I noticed that during the overnight, "Eng.Yusif Ibrahim" reached out to connect. Fabulous.

According to his profile, Mr. Ibrahim is "Retired" and in Libya, having worked in "Government Administration."

Since this profile smelled like a pile of rotting fish, I image searched this fellow; nothing of note came up on the first page,…

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…

Everything Must Change: Headhunter and Unashamed

Headhunter is defined as a person who identifies and approaches suitable individuals employed elsewhere to fill an open business position with their client.

When I first got in this business almost 12 years ago, this was a term that I did not like nor did I respect.  It was a term to…

What Was the Question?

Next time someone asks you to repeat a question, count the number of words. Chances are it was more than ten. I’ve often noticed this happening with salespeople talking with prospects and clients and executives speaking with members of their team. What’s the issue? Our brains process questions of less than ten words much more effectively than those that exceed ten.

Each time we pose a question of more than ten words, the listener spends more time focusing on the question and less on…

The Power of Collaborative Selling

Heavy-handed techniques, complex closes and feature-benefit laden pitches have dominated sales for years. These methods are exhausting to do and even more taxing on the receiving end for buyers. It’s little wonder that virtually no one likes to be on the receiving end of a sales pitch.

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…

Sales Intimacy—Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Having to tell my son, Ben, his dog had to be euthanized this past Tuesday is now on my top ten list of life’s crappy moments. Seeing him cry as he said goodbye to Max, yep, that’s on the list as well. That same day, a girl with whom he was starting a relationship suddenly ended their friendship by text. As Ben put it, “this day can’t get any worse.”

As a Dad, I want to shield Ben from these hurts in life. But I can’t, which really pisses me off at times! So I did the next best…

United Federation of Teachers (UFT) and the New York State Legislature – Today’s Radical Accountability Zeroes

Being married to a teacher, I’m biased, typically erring to a teacher’s point of view. However, when the behavior of teachers is harmful to children, I’ll take the kids’ side every time.

That’s the case in this latest awarding of Radical Accountability Zeroes to the UFT, the New York City affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers, and the New York State…

Empathize Then Solutionize

I’ve just returned from an extended business trip to the Twin Cities of Minnesota where I enjoyed a healthy dose of Minnesota Nice. If you’re unfamiliar with this, it’s a way of being in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. The cordiality and devotion that Minnesotans extend to one another, and guests like myself and my wife, is so commonplace that someone just had to give it a name.

Minnesota Nice…

Are You Stranded in the Desert?

Desolate and lonely, you find yourself in a vast space where it seems no one, absolutely no one, can be found. Parched and hungry you trudge on, getting wearier by the moment. You just want to give up, thinking, “this is it. This is where it all ends.” 

No, this is not a vain attempt at channeling Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Rather, the “desert” described above is the mental space that…
