Recently read an article and jotted down these 7 things successful people do quietly. How many of these are you doing? 1. Network - OK so some of us do not do this very quietly. People like us love to network and meet new people on a regular basis to grow our Circle. 2. Start New Projects - Interesting to note there are many good ideas and only a few materialize to actual projects. Enjoy being instrumental in new projects and like...

What I mean by "Did you get that?" is did you get all the details and did you actually understand what was communicated? We hear the news and share the headlines with our peers. What amazes me is how the stories are different even when we listen to the exact same report. Check it out next time and ask someone if they heard the news and what their understanding was. It is easier to communicate in face-to-face meetings by observing body language....

When a client communicates their experience with you, your team and your organization, are you hearing their message and really listening? Sharing good experiences with your company and complimenting your team is great to hear. What are they actually trying to tell you? How do you react to the compliment? Listen to what they are sharing with you. Understand what sets you and your team apart. Is it the process, the people, the leader, the relationship, the experience in general or a...

This week we welcome Guest Blogger Jacob Osborne, student at Villanova High School who shares his experience as an intern at AlphaKOR.

How are you building your referral tree? Do you receive and welcome referrals? Many have shared they struggle to ask for referrals or do not get many referrals. Others have shared they built their business on referrals. Here are some things to try that may help. I would encourage you to comment and share your experiences that work for you or did not work so we can all learn from it. Simply asking a non-intrusive question is a good way once you...

This week's blog was inspired by Andy Stanley's book "Next Generation Leader". Five primary obstacles are identified by Andy for leaders to adopt their way of thinking. The Quest for Balance We have all heard of being well-rounded and knowledgeable in all aspects of our respected profession.  However, being a leader, it is more important to have a focus. Focus on your core competencies and build your team to bring the well-roundedness under your leadership. Defining what only you can do should be...

This image from Gaping Art inspired this week's topic: Sometimes we get caught up in the metrics. We track stuff and make reports and not sure why. Stop and ask yourself: What are we measuring? What do the results mean? You may find some of these metrics no longer apply and have no relevance to what your goals are. How Do You Measure Business Opportunities? Well the first step is define what an opportunity looks like.  The qualification stage can be challenging and yet it...

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. With all the year-end milestones, holidays, happy new years and new years' resolution clichés, this is the ideal time to ask yourself "How full is your plate?" My plate always seems to be too full and it is my own fault. I wish I could blame someone or something and have accepted it as my own...

Enjoy your holidays!  Here's to wishing everyone some time to unwind, unplug and enjoy some leisure time. This is the time to spend with family, friends and with those you care the most about. We spent Christmas Eve together as a family. This year, my brother Rick hosted the Abbruzzese' and only one nephew could not make it. It was a great family time where we ate, chatted, laughed and played some games. Then we ate a little bit more of...

This week's topic is a very special one for me.  On Saturday night we had our company holiday dinner with our Team and our significant others. Traditionally, the Team purchases the 4 Partners individual gifts catering to each of us, which are not necessary. Well this year, the Partners were in for a very special surprise. The 4 Partners were called up to the front and were each given a gift bag. We were informed to open our gift bags at...
