Big is not necessarily better

I admit it I have an addiction. Back in 2001 I was introduced to the writings of Kathleen O'Neal Gear and her husband W. Michael Gear who have written a series of 23 historical fiction books centered around the lives of the North American Native Americans(http://www.gear-gear.com)They are fast reads but full of twists and turns. Their latest one is called People of the Back Sun in which the Standing Stone village is manned by about 400 warriors and they…

Chasing the Tale – Part One

Dr. Earl R. Smith II

Managing Partner, Growthers

I was recently working with the senior team of a mid-sized government contractor. They had built the company nicely to just over thirty-million dollars in annual revenue. The customer base was tight and well focused. They had good client intimacy and acceptable pipeline velocity. An initiative to move into a new agency seemed to be going well. From the outside, the company looked…

Really Is not my job difficult enough?

Here we are on the weekend before Christmas and the Iowa Supreme Court handed us an early "gift" Before I explain what the gift was, let me take you back in time to when Bobby Darin was still performing and he sag the following words:

"WelI … I don’t know what you got But it’s got me and baby I’m hooked Like a fish in the sea. You make angles call from above. You could make the Devil fall in love. An-a … who-o-o wouldn’t fall for irresistible you."

Over the past several decades…

After a very productive discussion on that subject, I asked another question. “Chuck, once you organize and implement a program of change within an organization, how to you assure that it will not…

Focus: Dealing with Distractions

Every time you stop for a distraction, it takes you 8 to 20 minutes to refocus and get back to where you were before you got distracted. Every time. Distractions are a common problem in most workplaces, and are an especially pesky problem for freelancers, solopreneurs, and others who work from home.

It’s time to take charge of those distractions—and just in time for the New Year. This month on The Branding Spot, we’ll be focusing on, well, focusing!

The world is a better place because of those who refuse to believe they can't fly

This afternoon we continued our family tradition and attended a performance by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra who introduced a new show entitled the Lost Christmas Eve. The center piece of the performance was a story of a business man who years earlier had the unfortunate luck of losing his wife during child birth and having a supposedly disabled child who he essentially disowned. It was a fitting response to some of the feelings that I have undergone in the last 48…

Ethyrial Minute: Effective Interviews and Sales

So often salespeople do what they do - they sell. Selling is an art and anyone can push a product or service onto someone but how many can actually listen to and answer the questioned asked in a concise manner? This is an important skill and shows not only that you are listening but that you value that person's time and are interested in providing for their specific needs by giving what they ask instead of what you want them to have!
