  This week I'd like to share my favourite ways of connecting people.   Thanks to so many supporters and for labelling me "The Connector".  This blog is dedicated to you! Connecting in person.   This is the best way to connect two people I know to each other.   You can share a bit about each person and add why it would be good for them to stay in touch.  This is called triad relationship building.  Introduce two people, start the conversation and walk...

  This week we revisit this topic to ask yourself:  Do you stop and think about what is holding you back? Look at the other side of this question to determine what motivates you.  Focus on these and work on the other things that prevent you from moving forward. We have talked about removing the nay-sayers and negative energy around you.  Really think about this.  If you find this holds you back, do something about it. You can ignore, forge ahead or you...

  It is always fun and a great opportunity when you are asked to share your story.   You decide what your story is and what you share with the audience. Sharing your story is every time you interact and connect with people.  Most of the time your story is short, focused on today and the future.  This is how we communicate who we are, what we stand for and how we can help or how the other person can help us. Sometimes you...

  Someone once said to me "I wish I had your life, it's so easy for you".  This certainly struck a nerve!  I asked why they felt this way and the response was "You are so happy, everything just happens for you and you make it look so easy."  So I defended myself on the 25+ years of dedication, late nights, early mornings, weekends invested on my career and on I went. Today, I have learned to simply smile and laugh when...

  Do you ever get the feeling you are are missing out?  This is actually coined as FOMO - the fear of missing out. As leaders, we want to be part of everything.  We want to be involved and we want to be everywhere.  We need to remember it is good to empower your Team.   Let your Team play a role in all these good things, instead of it just being you.   This helps your team grow and helps your leadership grow. This...

  The top three traits of great decision makers are:  Know Yourself, Always asking the Right Questions and Trust Your Instinct. 1. Know Yourself From time to time great decision makers perform a self-evaluation to determine what their strengths, weaknesses and biases are.  To make great decisions, you need to know yourself first to be certain you are confident in making the correct choice. When you do not know yourself well enough, you tend to make more incorrect decisions.  Invest some time to understand who...

  Leaders make everyone else a priority and focus on all the tasks at hand.  With this philosophy, we sometimes forget to make time for just our self. When we are passionate about the things we do and the people around us, it is easy for us to consume most of our time.   Thanks to certain special people we interact with, they show us what we cannot see.  They bring balance into our lives.  They help us understand the importance and benefits...

  Ever notice most people who are motivated have lots of energy, are focused and accomplish great things on a consistent basis? They move with a sense of purpose and with determination, like they are on a mission.  You can feel their energy when they walk into the room.  People gravitate towards them and engage in discussions or simply listen to what they are saying. Achieving success is one of my reasons for being motivated.  Accomplishing many things and crossing off items on...

  I sometimes catch myself asking someone their name right after I'm introduced.  Was I really focused and listening? Here are some tips on enhancing your listening skills.  Feel free to share your good and not so good experiences. Don't think about your response while the other person is talking.  Ever notice as soon as the speaker is finished talking, the other person automatically has a response.  Many times this automatic response has nothing to do with the speaker' conversation.  Check it out...

  The challenging part of the Technology Sector is it changes hourly!  How do you embrace change? 1. Open-Minded It is not easy to always be open-minded, however, we must always have an open-mind. Relying on just the past and doing things the same way will not necessarily result in future success. Just because "we always did it that way" does not mean it is the best way. Look at the constant change, the number of new requests and the fast pace of business....
