"Turn the Lights Off When You Leave"

turnthelightsoff_142 We recently started a new series of management training articles that we call, "Secrets to Success". You may have read some of them. So far, we've explored the nature of Persistence, Patience, and Generativity. Coming soon, are Integrity, Commitment, and Initiative. Most of these are the stock-in-trade of the personal development movement. Which is why our newsletter this week is such a refreshing change. Because, in this feature, we don't tell you to stick at something no matter what or to keep going when all seems lost. On the contrary, we celebrate giving up and admitting defeat. We call it "Turn the Lights Off When You Leave" and we think you'll love it as much as we do... more

We Like You Because You're Like Us

rapport03_175 One of the great pleasures in putting out our weekly series of Management Training Resources is to learn that people like you are able to change their whole lives by learning some of the tips we provide, putting them into practice and, bit by bit, mastering them. Like all learning, the change can start small, perhaps by trying out something minor, and then, when it works and feels good, moving on to something a bit bigger, until the change becomes a habit. From that point on, the skill is rooted and a part of who you have become. One of the soft skills where this has happened many times in front of our eyes is the art of building rapport. Click here and we'll show you how to do it... more
