“Great Leaders Come From Great Leaders” Sherry Thomas, Corporate Image Institute

“Great Leaders Come From Great Leaders” Sherry Thomas, Corporate Image Institute

Recently, I attended the Global Leadership Summit hosted by Willow Creek Church and its Founder, Billy Hybels. How impressive were the speakers! You see, I’ve always had an expression that, “If you lead by fear, you’re not leading, you’re terrorizing,” and after listening to some of these great leaders, I came away more convinced that […]

The Office Gossip and Bully

The Office Gossip and Bully

It all starts at the top.  I have an expression that one person can single-handedly bring down an entire department.  I know.  I’ve seen it firsthand.   Office bullying comes in many forms and gossip is one of them. It falls upon the shoulders of management to disallow slander, bullying, or any unsavory behavior that […]

My Memories Of Working With General Norman Schwarzkopf

I was speechless recently when I learned of the sudden passing of General Norman Schwarzkopf.  You see, I had the pleasure of working with him as a writer, TV producer, as an onset coach who prepared him for his interview segments, and even had the honor of applying his make-up once for his business show […]

The Table Manners Poem

The Table Manners Poem

Forks, sporks, knives and spoons, They matter not, the young man crooned. Now, this goes here and that goes there, What does it mean? Why should I care? Who says I must eat like a clown? With knife in right, fork upside down. Spoon out, not in, sip from the side, Don’t slurp, don’t burp, […]

Making Assumptions Can Lead To Trouble

Making Assumptions Can Lead To Trouble

Assumptions: Today, while in church, a man, many seats down from me, quickly climbed over all of us, his phone to his ear, his face with a look of concern and ran out the door.  A few minutes lapsed and his daughter excused herself over our many feet and exited.  The daughter returned after about […]

The OverCommitter

The OverCommitter

Are you the “What time and where” type of person? Some people just cannot say “no.” The result is overcommittment and the undue stress that accompanies it. Trying to “do it all” may mean that doing one thing well, suffers. It may happen at work, at home, or with friendships and it isn’t just you […]

Cell Phones In The Workplace

Every company needs a cell phone policy that is signed by employees but if management is sitting in a boardroom meeting, texting and continuously looking at his/her phone, then what message is that sending? Employees take the lead of what is established. Have a policy. Make it clear and stick to it.
