  Have you sat down yet, thought about setting your goals for 2017 and beyond?  How many New Years' Resolutions have you made and how many have you already broken? If you have not written down your goals, make this one of your goals!  Sit down today, think about what you want to accomplish, write them down and make it a goal to visit these goals regularly.   You should update your goals and remove some that no longer apply.   For the...

  This week, we revisit the topic of being polite.  Do you notice most successful people are also the polite ones? These are the people who step forward at a networking event to greet the newcomer, make them feel welcomed and introduce them to others.   They excuse themselves from their current conversation to focus on the person entering the room who seems to be a bit uncertain. When communicating with a polite person, you find they tend to listen, focus on you...

  Happy New Year Everyone!   OK, when do we stop saying "Happy New Year"?  With Christmas and New Years landing on a Saturday, it was a nice having a 4-day and 3-day weekend back to back this Holiday Season. Did you get out of your routine like me?   I actually unplugged more than usual during the holidays.   Only made the gym one day last week!   Back at it this week and this morning made it two days in a row, so I'm...

  Our Team supports and volunteers for many organizations and causes throughout the year!

  This week we welcome Guest Blogger Julia Youhanna, a grade 12 student at Holy Names High School. I'm currently doing my co-op at AlphaKOR.  I took co-op to see if the field I want to go into during my post-secondary schooling is actually something I want to do. While being here, at AlphaKOR, I have not only figured out I am still interested in computer science, I now also have an interest in business.  Being here and observing staff meeting, phone calls,...

  What are your top customer tips you find work in your everyday interaction in business?  Here are 3 to share with you. 1.  Positiveness Always, yes always, be positive when servicing customers, prospects and anyone else you are making a connection with whether creating an opportunity or not.  People appreciate and gravitate towards positive people. No negativity, ever.  Always be positive.   There is no value in being negative.  Even the "con's: can be positive such as "this solution may not address your...

  AlphaKOR and Windsor Essex Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC) have built a strong partnership developed over the years.   On Tuesday, November 29th AlphaKOR participated in the Emerging Technologies event hosted by WEEDC at Caesars Windsor. There were many community partners, supporters and professionals who exhibited and attended this event with distinguished guest speakers. During the event, WEEDC invited AlphaKOR to share in the announcement of their new website www.buywindsoressex.com developed by AlphaKOR.  Frank Abbruzzese complimented WEEDC as he shared with the crowd "These...

  "The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn't being said".   I came across this quote by Peter Drucker.  It made me stop and think about what we think we hear and what we miss that was not spoken. Try this next time you interact with someone face-to-face:   watch their eye movement, look at their body position and see if their face changes to convey a different meaning then the choice of words they are using. There are times when...

  Did I ever tell you about the time we went to Mexico on our first cousins' trip?  This will be a good story to share about our vacation last week.   As promised, this week will be about excellent customer service.   Sit back and enjoy some highlights of our Adventure! The goal was to be poolside in Mexico by 2:00 pm on Saturday.   Early start at Detroit airport:  The Adventure started at 4:00 am when we were informed our flight was delayed...

  There are many ways you can appreciate your Team.   I would like to again share three of them with you.         1.  Say Thank You More Often This may seem obvious and yet many employees have shared with their employers and others they wished their employers would thank them more. As employers we can argue employees are thanked by getting paid to do their job, however, this is not good enough. Saying a genuine thank you and recognizing an employee for doing...
