5 Networking No-No’s

Before I get to the 5 networking no-no's, there’s a story behind this post. My best friend, my wife, was asked a judgmental question about a third-party at a event. My wife is more patient than I. Much more. She let the speaker finish then politely asked, “May I curse?” When the speaker consented she [...]

Quit Being Passive about Passive-Aggressive Behavior

My daughter isn't passive about passive-aggressive behavior. A few years ago, I spent part of the holidays in Florida with my youngest daughter and her family. Her 12-year-old daughter had just received her first two C's ever on her report card. It was her first time dealing with seven periods, multiple teachers, and the chaos [...]

6 People to Meet at a Networking Event

Have you ever considerer what people to meet at a networking event? Have you ever attended a networking event with little or no thought as to your purpose? I have. Treating a networking event as a social gathering to chat with friends and acquaintances may be fun, but it’s a waste of opportunities. The potential [...]

Do You Really Know What Motivates Your Employees?

So, do you think you know what motivates your employees? This might sound silly but the key to motivating anyone is to first understand what motivates them. Too often, well-intentioned leaders attempt to motivate their team with what works for the leader. What motivates the leader seldom motivates every individual on a team. And to [...]

Let Your Smile be Your Calling Card

Let your smile be your calling card. Could it be that simple? I've written a lot about networking. I've posted more than a dozen blogs. In the blogs I've outlined what to do, what not to do, who to connect with and how to connect. I've advised where to network and why it matters. But…I [...]

Workplace Conflict What to do When Working with Someone is Killing You

Workplace conflict can be invasive. Years ago, the owner of a company I worked with stopped his car, turned around, and headed back home on a Monday Morning. On the drive back home, he thought about why he didn't want to go to work. It was because of one negative employee; even he, the owner, [...]

Bet You Haven’t Thought of These Networking Opportunities

Have you considered networking opportunities other than events? If you agree with me that networking is one of the surest ways to expand your horizons wouldn't it make sense to look for networking opportunities beyond the norm? Networking events, social media meetups, and chamber meetings are all great places to meet people and be introduced [...]

Don’t Pigeonhole your Management Style

I took a management style quiz the other day. It was good. It was well thought out, to the point, and offered valuable advice. The answers I gave, fit my overall leadership style but that’s not always the style I use or the style best suited to the situation. It has been my observation that [...]

Why Creating a Networking Group Rocks

Have you considered creating a networking group? I've written dozens of posts on networking. So—why one more? Because I've hardly touched on what is by far the most rewarding  networking group I belong to, Friend Up. What is Friend Up? Friend up came into existence October of 2010. It was a serendipitous creation. I sent [...]

How to Train New Managers

How to train new managers starts by understanding they need training. I've trained new managers for more than 30 years as an employee and as an outside consultant. It's been a privilege to work with companies attuned to the training needs of novice managers. Unfortunately, I've found these organizations to be the exception; the majority [...]
