  Just Do It Many people ask how I accomplish so many things with work, volunteer, family and leisure time.  My answer to the question is:  I just do it. So you already know I am an early bird.  Up at 5 am except Saturdays when I sleep in until 6 or so.  First thing every morning I prepare my task list by creating a new one starting with the most important task first.  Having the discipline to complete task one and then...

Do Something Different Every morning it is the same routine giving comfort in knowing the day is organized and planned.  It's hit the gym, make the new priority task list and embrace the day. When I was asked to participate in a fashion show, my first reaction was absolutely not and said "are you kidding?"  With the encouragement of the family I decided to do something out of my comfort zone. The Catwalk Our first rehearsal and introduction to the runway was new for...

  Know Your Audience Do your homework to know who the stakeholders are.  What are their personalities like? How do they make decisions?  What are they responsible for and how does this project affect them? Use their language and build an emotional bond with each stakeholder by bringing your genuineness and passion.  Ensure they understand the nature and scope of the project.  Have a "champion" to help support you and compliment your planning stage. State The Scope Of The Project Start with an overall statement...

  Business Keeps Moving Faster 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...

  Bring Your Passion Do you get caught up in people who just do not get it?   Do not let them stop you.  Do not let them slow you down.  Bring your passion.  Take the high road!   Always take the high road. Lead In the Right Direction Keep focused and move forward in the right direction.   Most people will eventually figure them out and will be back on board to support you.  Make it impossible for anyone to support those who do not get...

  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...

  How Many Women Are On Your Team? We are proud to share since day one AlphaKOR has supported diversity and equal gender opportunity on our team.   The AlphaKORians' have 25% females on our Team.  How do we encourage more women in tech and in business? There are many women in my life, both personal and professional.  Thanks to all of them, especially Carmela, Haley, Syd, my mom and so many others!  Thank you for being part of my journey. Build A Dream Video I...
