    How to Trust and Act on Your Intuition in Real Time When an Interaction Takes a Turn You Didn’t Expect.

    Developing your ability to pay attention to, trust, and act on your intuition in real time is one of the absolute most powerful communication skills you can learn. By doing so you move yourself away from reacting without full awareness to people and events, which usually leads to a need to clean up messes that you’ve inadvertently created, to responding in a mindful manner, which enables you to be more successful in all your communications. There is something magical about being able to communicate your intuition or what you sense and call out an issue in real time that’s not being spoken about, but that everyone senses. If you’d like to learn how to do this just give a listen.

    Isn't Doing Good Work All That's Needed To Keep Getting Promoted? In One Word, "No!"

    Isn't Doing Good Work All That's Needed To Keep Getting Promoted? In One Word, "No!"

    Doing Good Work is Just the Price of Admission: Building Trust and Commitment Along with Solid Workplace Relationships Takes You to the Next Level.

    Most people believe that all you need to do to succeed is to work hard, do good work and let it speak for itself and that’s how you get promoted. Your manager and other people should notice what a great job you’re doing and put you up for promotions. Well, I’m sorry to say that’s wrong. However, the truth of how things actually work is that aside from doing a good job it is your ability to build strong relationships characterized by high levels of trust and commitment that makes the difference in who gets promoted. Listen in to learn how to make relationship building a natural part of your work.

    I Thought Networking Was Something You Did Only When You Need A New Job.

    I Thought Networking Was Something You Did Only When You Need A New Job.

    Learn How Your Relationship Building skills (Networking by any other name) Are as Important as Your Subject Matter Expertise.

    Most people think of networking as something you do when you’re looking for a job, and an activity where you’re looking for others to help you. Further, I’d say that when most people think about networking images of being a phony and using others come to mind. The truth is, networking is one of the key skills you need to succeed at work today. As we’ve discussed in another podcast your technical or subject matter expertise can get you in the door and establish your credibility, but aside from doing a good job it is your ability to build strong internal and external relationships characterized by high levels of trust and commitment that makes the difference in your overall success. Listen in to learn how to make networking a part of what you do everyday in the normal course of your work.

    Could You Repeat That? I Was So Busy Thinking About My Response That I Didn't Catch What You Said.

    Learn How to Get Out of Your Own Head and Become a Thoughtful Listener.

    Most of us believe that listening is just something that happens, that it’s something we don’t have to think about. Well, that’s wrong. Being a thoughtful listener is about making a conscious choice to be fully present. It’s about committing to being in the moment and letting go of where you’ve been and what’s cluttering your mind. By authentically engaging with the other not only do you come to a better understanding which can make all of your interactions more successful, but you are also building trust and strengthening that relationship. Want to boost your trust building skills? Listen in.

Work Life Balance

Very relevant topic these days when so many are working from home and finding ourselves even more out of balance. My family is ready to stage an intervention with me! This idea of work life integration sounds promising.

Should I go or should I stay?

I am new to podcasts. I was browsing through the library and came upon this jewel. This coach on Demand podcast by Dr. Greg Ketchum has all the elements anyone could ask for. The podcast was laugh out loud humorous at the same time being very informative. I can understand how Dr. Greg became known as the “ Frazier of the Cubicle “ on the San Francisco news channels.

Please keep the podcasts coming and I can’t wait to listen to the next. Thanks for making learning fun, effortless, and entertaining.
