Public Speaking: Practice + Affirmation = Success
by Suzanne Bates - Nov, 2009
I’m often asked whether there is a formula for success in public speaking, and my response has always been, “practice.” Practice is the secret to becoming good and the antidote to fear. But I just had a personal experience that made me realize that practice is only one half of the formula. Ten thousand hours of preparation won’t prevent a meltdown if you’re walking around with stupid, idiotic thoughts in your head. Las...

by Ramon Greenwood - Nov, 2009
It’s very difficult --no, it's impossible-- to get there if we don’t know where we want to go.

by Joshua Waldman - Nov, 2009
My grandmother, who is 86 this year, always told me that, “humility was for people who could afford it” and when I was 10, I “couldn’t afford it”. She wanted me to be more confident, brag a little bit. I’m sure she was just a proud grandma, and I love her for it. Now, only after years of corporate experience did I finally understand what she meant. Of the many cold hard facts of the work-world, one of them is, “You have...

Once upon a time, a prince and princess lived in stressful palace, surrounded by a stressful village, inside a stressful land. They knew it was stressful because everyone said it was.

by Linda Dobogai - Nov, 2009
Depressive feelings associated with being dislocated can impact your energy level if you allow this to happen. Remember there is a moment where we can choose between lethargy and taking action.

Today a long time friend was laid off “unexpectedly” – she was given no notice and turned in her company computer and phone on the spot. Nothing against her employer (business IS business), but she was left ill-prepared, to say the least. “I have a few cards,” she told me in a flat monotone. “I am eerily calm.” Of course, I offered my commiseration and any help in the way of a resume and contacts.
