Cerebral Floggings

In chatting with a colleague a few days ago, we both agreed that all of us, including people who are highly successful, experience doubts and fears. The difference between those that have tremendous success and those that do not is whether or not the negative thoughts turn into a cerebral flogging.

Often, stinking thinking begins after a mistake, poor outcome, or disappointment of some kind, and it’s quite normal that the first thought is less than positive. Highly successful people,…

The Power of the Pull

Cheers from Bournemouth on the southern coast of England where I’m spending week two of my vacation with my wife and kids. Not only is spending time with my family here giving me something to look forward to each day, the anticipation of this trip had a positive pull on me for the last few months. The planning, the anticipation, all of it has given me something to work towards. This is the power of…

50 Years and Counting

50 years ago today, a young couple took their vows, pledging to see things through, for better or worse. As the son of these two quirky human beings, I look back at the decades of their marriage and marvel at all they have been through. In particular, while I was in high school, when Dad walked out the door telling Mom he was “done.” Half a century later, they have always found a way to work through their issues and build a stronger relationship. Just a few weeks ago, they bought each other…

Nelson Mandela – Today’s Radical Accountability Hero

On his 95th birthday, it’s only fitting that this humble, yet powerful man be awarded the status of Radical Accountability Hero. His work in dismantling the legacy of apartheid is just one chapter in a legacy that will be spoken of for decades to come.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President! Best wishes for a speedy recovery, a quick release from the hospital,…

Submit One Candidate and Close the Deal – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Week

There is absolutely no logical reason why customers buying staffing and recruiting services need to spend hours of their time reviewing and interviewing candidates. That is, unless you really stink at what you do.

If your firm is competent at understanding client needs, recruiting quality talent, and making appropriate matches a significant number of your deals should be one and done…one…

Why You Should Take Things Personally

We’re often told not to take things personally, yet, there are times when briefly doing so serves us well. Take, for example, when you learn that a current client bought from someone else. Most likely, that means the customer did not tell you or, more often than not, that you did not ask how else you could be of service. In this instance, one of your competitors got a check that should have been…

Pepto Bismol for the Verbal Vomit

Watch many salespeople and you’ll observe the spewing of factoids, details, and feature-benefit chunks of information all over prospective clients. Even leaders often engage in this projectile-like communication as they tell their subordinates what to do and how to do it.

For decades, great lip-service has been given to the idea that we should listen more than talk and that we were given two ears and one mouth as proof. Yet, many spouting this wisdom continue to inundate those around…

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…

There’s Always Something Gooder – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Week

In my practice of yoga, I consistently deepen and expand my ability to hold poses longer and to stretch just a little further. As a result, I’m stronger and more limber than I’ve ever been in life. In Sales Yoga, we stretch our clients, inviting them to think and even act differently. All you have to do is inquire about the “er” and watch how people suddenly go from disinterest to engaged conversations that lead to sales. For example, if a prospect tells you…

…I’m happy, ask, “What…
