  Go Fish! Turning Blah Blah Blah into Bling
by Barbara Giamanco - Aug, 2015
Convincing people to buy from you is sort of like fishing. To catch those fish you need a product or service that someone else needs, a process you work consistently, a hook with the right kind of bait, patience and great timing. When it gets right down to it, your ability to attract clients and close sales is not that much different. Ditch the pitch. If you stop and think about it for a minute, it’s pretty obvious that...

There’s no way to prevent change and the discomfort that comes along with it, especially in the unpredictable 21st century business world. What you can do, though, is learn to be at peace while chaos swirls around you. When I entered the business world for the first time, I took my Type-A self with me.

But what happens when a blind woman doesn't hear the approach of a quiet electric vehicle and directs her dog to step off the curb?

  Red Teaming with your Co-workers: Get Their Opinion
by Terri Tierney Clark - Jul, 2015

  How to Talk to the Bully: Disarming Workplace Bullying
by Mark Gorkin - Jun, 2015
Prologue: As many of you know, when I write about bullying or trauma in general it comes from my personal well, including several years of childhood bully trauma: stricken by shame, taunted by peers but mostly stalked by my own lurking fear and helplessness, a constant struggle to concentrate, unaware of my smoldering depression, subliminal rage, and omnipresent mask. Then there was the nuclear tension and family secrets (e....
