Getting on My Last Nerve

We need to take some time to think through what we are doing and how we are doing it. Not at a shallow level, but at a more in-depth level. We need to really look at the nervous systems of our organizations, and well as the flowcharts for maintaining and operating a successful body.

Mastery in the Age of the Overnight Success

The only way to truly be successful is to seek mastery. The people that are masters in their field make the most money, are the most successful and have stability and longevity. As Alan Pease once said, “Brain surgeons earn 10 times that of a general practitioner. It pays to be an expert.”

What is My Purpose in Life?

Searching for and finding your purpose is hard work and is a process, not an overnight decision or a sudden revelation. Once you know your purpose, the workflows, the motivation rises and productivity reaches an all-time high.

From Startup to Sensation In 6 Steps

As a consultant, I have spent lots of time helping clients shape and build their company cultures. The culture your company creates affects everything that you do and how you do it. Here are six tips and ideas to help you build your organizational culture.

What Leaders Lack

What do leaders say that other leaders in their organizations lack? And what do these same leaders think they lack themselves. Here are five areas that eaders cite most often.


Business Training, Executive Coaching, Keynote Speaking

One element of leadership is the often overlooked and underappreciated skill of communication. Many leaders that I meet think that they are great communicators. Many are. The reality is that some are not as gifted in communication as they think that they are.

In actuality, they may need a good deal of work. What is humorous is that in many organizations, when I talk to the managers and ask about their perceptions of their abilities as a communicator, they rank themselves as somewhere between great and good. The irony is that when I ask employees and team members about the level of communication within their organization, they often rank communication as being poor to fair.

In “The 10 Secrets of Effective Communication as a Leader,” Shawn Doyle, CSP, will share the 10 elements that help transform good leaders into great leaders. It comes down to how effective you are at communicating mission, vision, values, organizational goals, and more. With more than 30 years experience helping executives and managers communicate better, Shawn’s advice is on target and timely.

Having a Purpose for What You Do

One of the most powerful sources of motivation is to have a purpose for what you do. At this point, you are probably saying, “Okay, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to understand that I have a purpose. I get up and go to work to make money. That is my purpose.”

Well, not so fast….

In “The 10 Keys to Motivation,” Shawn Doyle, CSP, will show you why this is the wrong way to think and a thought process conditioned by society. He believes this thought process often leads to lack of motivation. In fact, it has the potential to possibly make us miserable in our life. Going to work to make money is not a purpose; it is a reason to go to work. Shawn will give you 10 ways to help you find your true purpose.

7 Ways to Massively Increase Creativity & Innovation

Many people often ask me this question, “Where do you come up with all of these ideas?” My answer is usually something like, “They just come to me.” When people who aren’t creative or who want to be more creative hear me say that an “idea just comes to me,” they are often mystified and sometimes frustrated wishing they could say the same thing.

It often sounds to people as though the ideas fell out of the sky and into my lap. Here is the real truth- over my entire career as both as an employee of corporate America and as an entrepreneur, I have developed a set of tools and approaches that help me develop ideas and concepts quickly. I now pass that information on to you.

The Secret to Achieving Happiness

If you were going to sail on a big boat from New York to England, as the captain, would you take a GPS system with you? You are smart, so the answer would be yes. I would guess you would also take a backup navigation system, just in case the other one failed. You wouldn’t just get in the boat and go, would you? No, you wouldn’t! Nobody would. That would be crazy and reckless and might lead to some not-so-happy results.

But here’s what amazes me: most people I meet across the country do not do this for their life. They do not have a GPS for their life. They don’t have goals.

Do you?
