Everyone Can Be Successful;


Like so many folks of my vintage, on the day I reached my sixtieth birthday I began an involuntary self-assessment and reappraisal of my life. This was not a dramatic or religious rebirth; it was not a form of salvation or psychological liberation, and I did not “find myself” or “recreate myself”. Instead, this was … Continue reading

The Value Of Honesty

Success Through People…Surviving Beyond a Down Economy


The key to more with less is with your current employees. Become an open, honest employer with a transparent management plan.

More than ever in the history of North American business, employees want inclusion and a say in how their workplace runs. Give it to them! Stop hanging on to the old ways of doing business and start giving your employees what they want, no matter how difficult letting go of your old principles might be.

A Big Ego is a Terrible Thing to Waste!


People with strong egos like a pat on the back. They need to be acknowledged for their good work. The feeling of satisfaction they derive from praise is like a drug to them…the more they get…the more they want. The more praise they receive, the more likely it is that they will perform at exponentially higher levels. However, if people with big egos are ignored or criticized for their work, they will no longer derive a sense of satisfaction from their work and performance will probably decrease in quality and quantity.

Generation “Y” will soon rule the world


Generation “Y” is just the current crop of kids that will eventually rule the world.
