Are You Up To A Challenge?

Last March, I underwent double hernia surgery. Believe me, you don't want to get one of these if you don't have to, because, the recovery is a lot longer than you might think.  For the majority of 2012, I was immobile and unable to enjoy outdoor activities like running, hiking, and playing golf. My 6'5" frame was starting to tip the scales at 270 pounds. I had to do something. But what?  

Igniting Passion from Within

As a result of recent research, the need for thinking differently about how to motivate people, especially in their work, has become prevalent. The longstanding hypothesis of motivation was that the more incentive you offer someone, the harder they will work. Incentive, in this case, refers to both rewards for positive results and punishment for negative. This is known as the ‘carrot and stick’ system.

When to Mentor, When to Coach?

Inside each of us are strong prejudices; young versus old, black versus white, fat versus thin, tall versus short, my team versus yours. These prejudices are largely unconscious. We say we don’t have them and yet study after study shows that they prevail in making key choices (such as who to hire, who to date, who to buy from, and who to give preference to in a promotion).
