In today' business environment, successful leadership styles include being an empathetic leader.  To be an empathetic leader is to truly care about people especially your team you are leading. Caring About Others To care about others is to be engaged with each member of your team.   Ask how they are doing, find out what they are working on, what their successes and challenges are and ask about their personal life and personal inspirations.   Make them feel and understand...

  How can you lead more while doing less? By letting go and delegating tasks while not constantly following up will help you lead more. When you always follow-up on each and every task, you are actually doing more and leading less. I am experiencing a bit of this on a daily basis and catch myself! When I actually do let go, guess what? The team takes care of the tasks and do a great job. This allows me to focus on the...

  Can Making Presentations Be Fun? In the past, my presentations included the standard PowerPoint deck.  I found the number of slides and content just was not the right fit for most audiences.  There were too many!  It felt right to skim some slides quickly and to skip others altogether.  In the last couple of years, I have almost abandoned the script and might glance at it to find a topic. Theses presentations have been a lot more fun and the attendees are...

  This week as we settle in and embrace 2019, I have completed my annual office cleaning, organizing and planning.  Looking at some of the archives always puts me in a happy mood enjoying the past and knowing it just keeps getting better.   I came across stats for the Building Circles blog and wanted to share the most popular one with you.  (If you read it before, go to the last two paragraphs).   Enjoy and keep sending your feedback and comments.

Here are some things 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...

  Make 2019 the year you keep it simple!   How many New Year's resolutions have you made and how many have you broken so far? Pick one, the most important one and make it happen.   That's the first way to keep it simple this year. Just answer the question.  Yes, we love to tell our story !  We like to add lots of information and bring in background information and so forth.   However, just answer the question and do not reply with a...

As we roll into the holiday season take some time to reflect on your accomplishments and look at your goals for the new year.  My New Years resolution each year is to not make any!   I simply reflect on another great year and look forward to being part of another one in 2019! It is easy to look at all the tough and challenging things in your life.   This is normal stuff.  Just don't get down and don't get stuck there. ...

It has been a lot of fun sharing the AlphaKORian' story with high school students these past couple of weeks.

During the first...

  Do you have a "Not to do List?" We have heard about making a to do list and making a top 3 or top 5 priority list as part of a daily routine. Creating a not to do list can be more challenging!

(Do not) Conform to simply conform Making mistakes.  Yes, we all make mistakes and the...
