Conversation with an Executive Coach

July 30th, 2014 — 01:43 am
Conversation with an Executive Coach ―What do you do?” The proverbial question we get asked day in and day out by strangers, acquaintances, family, and friends. We are conditioned to answer with our current job or career.

July 29th, 2014 — 01:55 am
President Ike Eisenhower once demonstrated the difference between leadership and management to his cabinet by putting a piece of string in a straight line on the conference table.

Friedman Proves The Flat Earth Society Is Right--Sort Of

July 27th, 2014 — 01:58 am
/p> The Flat Earth Society has claimed that the earth is flat. They’ve tried to ―deprogram the masses” since 1547 to the present—those pathetic, confused, dim-witted folks like me who wrongly assert the earth is round. Just in case you haven’t heard, New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman’s recent book proves that the world is flat. It hasn’t always been flat, mind you, but globalism in the 21st century has flattened the earth economically, bulldozing it into a global ...

She turned her sound eye towards the land that she might get the earliest tidings of the approach of hunter or hound, and her injured eye towards the sea, from whence she entertained no anticipation of danger. Some boatmen sailing by saw her, and taking a ...

Communication and other people skills are as important to the success of your business as your talent, knowledge and entrepreneurial drive.
