  This week marks 31 years since my professional career started right after graduating from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Commerce degree! Thought I'd take this opportunity to thank so many terrific people who have supported and helped me along this awesome journey!  Thanks to Carmela for her love, support and always being here for me.   Here's to our 26th wedding anniversary in June!  To Haley and Syd for their love and keeping things in perspective on what's important...

  The End Of An Era? Did you know PowerPOint was originally called Presentation when released in 1984 and renamed to PowerPoint on April 20, 1987?  It was just around when I started my career a year later (April 25, 1988 for those keeping track)! It was originally made for the Apple MacIntosh computer and currently there are over 500 million users with 30 million PowerPoint presentations daily!  The average PowerPoint usage from open to closing the file is 250 minutes.  The average...

  From Broadcast To Employee Engagement Thought leadership traditionally focused on the leader broadcasting their vision, mission and directions to their tribe.  There is a shift from this broadcast leadership style to employee engagement.  How do you achieve employee engagement? Core Values Do you lead your team with a set of core values everyone buys into and embraces?  At our team discussions, we always read our core values to ensure all the AlphaKORians' know how important it is to ask themselves if they are...

  Making A Difference Are you making a difference?  Do you inspire others to make a difference or are you inspired by others who make a difference? (you may have to read that last line again). Bringing your passion and positive energy to everything and everyone you interact with makes an impact.  I enjoy watching people turn everything into a positive light and make the best of any given situation. Client Partnerships On the business side, it is enjoyable to truly partner with clients to...

  Do You Care? This is an important question to have the right answer to.  In many of our discussions with our team and associates, this is one of the hot topics frustrating owners and managers.  You can easily fill in the rest of the story on the client side and they clearly know when you care or you do not care. Customer service, customer support and reacting to customer requests is only part of caring.  The AlphaKORians subscribe to Total Customer Experience...

  Work Life Balance Does work get in the way of your life or has work become your way of life?  How do you balance all the work-related tasks you need to complete each and every day, while balancing your personal life? Once upon a time we had three parts of our day which were split equally: 8 hours of work, 8 hours of leisure time and 8 hours of sleep.  Yes looking back this seems like a fairy tale now!  Today' balance...

  Why Do We Need Good Daily Habits? Having a good routine, being disciplined to focus on your responsibilities and your goals will help you achieve good things daily. Prioritizing Tasks Always a challenge!   This is due to the fact every task feels like a top priority. Follow a simple rule:  FIFO which means First In, First Out.  With the exception of adding a certain new task you feel is a higher priority, add it as the next task or near the top of...

  Customer Centricity Doing business focusing on providing positive customer experience in order to generate sales, growth and to lead is customer centricity.  This approach develops trusted long-term relationships and it builds a solid reputation. Other approaches companies might use are profit-driven and volume of products/services making it about just the numbers.  When your approach is strictly about the numbers, you are not customer focused. TCE One of our core values at AlphaKOR is customer focus and the AlphaKORians do a great job!  In fact,...

  Sharing Your Real-World Experience One of the thought leadership trends for 2019 is audiences are hungry for insightful actual case studies and sharing of actual stories.   Theoretical and projections are not going to cut it!

With all our interactions, clients, prospects, associates and audiences we present to are always seeing the real stories.   You can tell the genuine stories from the fabricated ones.   The genuine ones bring passion, show real pain and problems solved. Sharing Case Studies Do you have...
