  Lists Always my favourite thing is my list of to do tasks.  Do you have lists that you create every day and check off items as you complete them?  I am known for my lists.  Everything goes on a list in either First In First Out (FIFO) sequence or in order of priority depending on the nature of the item. I have a daily list, a list to do at home, on the weekend and a personal list.  Lists help you stay on...

  The other day, I met an associate for lunch at a place he suggested.   It was my first time there.  The decor, the greeter, the food and our server were all very good.  I used the restroom and was a bit surprised to see the paper hand towel roll near depletion.   The patrons the day before must have missed the garbage can as evident by the number of paper towels on the floor and the garbage can was more than...

  At this time of year, when we reflect and give thanks to those who make a difference in our life, it is a good time to reflect on what makes your business work.  Saying thank you to your team, clients, suppliers, associates, family and friends who support you is good to do.  When you look within your company, look deeper into your roots and foundation.   Where did you come from?   How did you get here?   We often forget, it's the...

  From time to time, it is a good idea to stop and take a look at how much or how little is on your plate.  Ask yourself:  "How full is your plate?"   You may not like my answer:   "Get a bigger plate!"  Just kidding!   I'd like you to take a moment and reflect what is on your plate, what should be on your plate and  what should not be on your plate.   Now, what are you going to do to...

  With so many things on your plate, how do you actually turn it off? 1.  Unplugged  Do you remember when a vacation was actually a vacation?   This means getting away from the office and not being in touch with anyone except a family member or friend back home you called only once when you arrived. I recall the days when we went away on vacation or camping and there was no way to contact anyone except going to a front desk/store and using...

  Remember when you used to actually go to the office to take care of business from Monday through Friday?   The speed of business is moving fast and it will keep moving faster!   How are you keeping up as the leader? What worked in the past may work in some areas of your business, however, many areas of business have had to change.   The conversation is different today.   Customers are requiring more expertise, business strategy and stronger relationships....

  Are you settling for where the bar is or are you the one who keeps moving the bar higher? As the leader of your team, your company and in your industry, you get to set the bar!   How do you coach and motivate your team to keep moving to this level? If you follow, instead of lead, then you have set the bar too low.  Sure, on paper it looks successful when you surpass the low bar, however, you and your...

  We are always thankful for those who support us, help us become better and to grow, both personally, professionally and as a company.   There were many partner meetings where we would always say "Don't Forget Where We Came From" and we would remember everyone along our journey. We are very thankful for our many clients, the ones who joined us today and all the way back to the ones supporting us for over 26 years - that's even before AlphaKOR...

  With all this rain, many of us had a change of plan yesterday and today.   What route would we take to get home to avoid getting stuck in the road and in heavy traffic?   Would we have to deal with a flooded basement when we went home?  Our basement flooded a few years ago and we had to change our plan. From the archives January 9th, 2014: Sometimes things happen resulting in a change of plan in your daily priorities....

  How do you make new connections? As a business professional, this is one of the most self-rewarding activities I really enjoy. Meeting people for the first time and interacting with them on a regular basis provides the opportunity to get to know each person' story. There are many ways to make new connections.  You can attend networking events, charity events, client appreciation open houses, introductions through tools such as LinkedIn or say hello to someone at the grocery store.  There are people...
