    You can lay all the necessary groundwork, and make all the necessary plans, for the world’s best conference—but if nobody actually shows up for it, all your effort is for nothing. And taking an “If I plan it, they will come” approach to your conference simply won’t work. As with anything else you do, a […]

    We all want to be liked, and that includes being liked by our workplace peers. And being liked at work isn’t just a matter of feelings or of ego. When you’re not liked, it’s hard to be an effective leader; it’s difficult to collaborate; it’s frankly a challenge to get much of anything done within […]

    As a leader, manager, or entrepreneur, you undoubtedly have a lot on your plate—so how can you possibly be expected to make time for healthy habits? That’s a question I get asked often, and what I keep coming back to is this: Developing healthy routines will keep you focused and energetic. It will significantly decrease […]

    There’s a lot riding on your choice of conference speaker. In a very real way, it could make or break your event. After all, the main speaker effectively sets the tone and provides much of the actionable advice that participants will take away. Pick the wrong speaker for your audience and the entire conference could […]

    I’ve written a few articles about productivity, and I’ve read many more. I’m always struck by one particular challenge that seems to accompany these articles. Simply put: We’re all different. And different things help us to be productive. While I try to offer guidelines that are fairly adaptive, I know that most productivity hacks are […]

    It’s often said that, in order to be successful, you’ve got to surround yourself with the right people—the best people. The smartest people. I don’t necessarily think this is wrong, but it might be misleading. You see, all this focus on finding the best people puts a lot of emphasis on what they can do […]

    It’s no fun to go through a work day with insufficient sleep—let alone several work days in a row. But sleep deprivation isn’t just a bummer. It can have a negative impact on your mood, your stress levels, and your productivity. In other words, you may think that burning the midnight oil is helping you […]

    Millennial workers differ from previous generations in several respects—but I’d argue that the most significant is this: They don’t take jobs solely on the basis of benefits, nor even career advancement. Both of those things can be important, but more than anything else, the workers of today want to align themselves with the right company […]

    As a motivational speaker, I am constantly working to make my own presentations better—crisper, clearer, funnier, more actionable, all-around stronger. So naturally, I gravitate toward any new article I see that claims to offer insight into the art of the speech. A recent Fast Company article, written by Neil Pasricha, claims that any good speech […]

    As a healthcare keynote speaker, corporate wellness is something that always interests me. I am continuously encouraged to see companies where fitness is intrinsic to the culture—and where the leadership clearly values the physical and emotional wellbeing of each employee. What’s the Big Deal About Wellness? Focusing on wellness isn’t merely a nice thing to […]

    Are you a morning person? I am, I confess. I like to be up fairly early in the morning to check emails and get ready for my day, but also to catch up on blogs and news headlines, to go rollerblading, to get some things accomplished before the onset of phone calls and other distractions. […]

    As a motivational speaker and leadership coach, I encounter a lot of professionals who are looking to crack the code. They’re looking to figure out how they can get more done, while working less. I don’t mean working less hard. I mean working fewer hours. I mean making the most of your time in the […]

    I’m a motivational business speaker by trade, which means that productivity is something I hear about pretty regularly. Basically, everyone wishes they could be more productive, but not everyone knows how to make that happen. The conventional wisdom is that, to truly make yourself more productive, you’ve got to institute some big changes—waking up at […]

    Do you have a great workplace culture? Maybe you do, and maybe you don’t. Some workplace cultures are truly excellent, while others are utterly lousy. My perspective, based on years of experience as an executive leadership coach, is that most company cultures fall somewhere in the mediocre-to-good range—not bad by any means, but also not […]

    Building a cohesive team can be challenging, even when you have all your employees together under one roof. When your team is spread out across multiple office locations, though, that only makes things harder—challenging, yes, but by no means impossible. As an executive coach and leadership keynote speaker, I’ve worked with a lot of entrepreneurs […]

    As a motivational speaker, I’m constantly telling leaders and entrepreneurs about the importance of emotional intelligence—or EQ, as it’s sometimes called. Why is EQ important? Because EQ is what allows you to identify and categorize your own emotions—and thus, to control them. Moreover, EQ allows you to better understand the emotional drivers of others—your employees, […]

    Nobody likes receiving bad news—especially not about their own workplace performance. Being told by a boss or a superior that you’re on thin ice can be daunting, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of your career. There are always ways to bounce back from workplace blunders and bad performance reviews. Let me offer some […]

    Do you control your smartphone—or does your smartphone control you? All of us probably feel like it’s the latter and not the former sometimes, but being too dependent on your mobile device can be bad news—especially when you’re in a leadership position. Your device can sap your productivity and sabotage your peace of mind, which […]

    It’s a common misconception—the idea that if you can burn the midnight oil, working a few hours later each evening, you’ll get more done. I’ve never found this to be the case. On the contrary: Giving your mind a break—and allowing your body the sleep that it needs—boosts your energy level, your creativity, and your […]

    Culture is the glue that holds your team together. It’s the set of values and goals that aligns everyone within your organization. Culture is unifying, which is part of what makes it so important—especially in workforces that might otherwise be disparate or divided. Case in point: Virtual/remote teams. When your team is spread across different […]

    Earning some favorable buzz from the media can be a real boon for your small business. Just one problem: How exactly do you get that buzz? It isn’t always easy, especially since trying too hard to get media attention can make your business seem a bit desperate. With that said, there are some tried and […]

    As a Florida motivational speaker, I get to meet entrepreneurs and learn about businesses of all shapes and sizes. One thing I’ve been struck by over the years is just how many small businesses experience seasonal ebb and flow—a lot of busyness during one part of the year, followed by a relative lull. Maybe your […]

    Nobody’s perfect. We’ve all heard that old saying, and of course it’s true. But it also comes with an important implication: There is always an opportunity for us to get better. People can grow and improve every day. So can companies—but for that to happen, the company must have a culture that lends itself to […]

    I’ve been a motivational speaker for a number of years now, and I have to say: So far, I’ve not met many people who actually like receiving negative feedback. It can be truthful, and it can be necessary, but that doesn’t mean it’s welcome. Sometimes, negative feedback can feel too personal, too nitpicky, or just […]

    There’s a reason why company culture has become such a big focus for companies both large and small. Studies show, time and time again, that culture can make or break performance, team cohesion, employee retention, and recruitment. So if you’re thinking about making a proactive move to enhance your company culture, that’s certainly not a […]
