It is not only the recruiting but the retaining of our people that we as leaders have to concentrate on. What makes a team of people exceptional or, at the very least, effective? Recruitment is a major issue. More so than at any other time. I have never seen so many recruitment companies as there are these days. When you look at the amount of recruitment sites and companies around you get a clear understanding as to why it is so difficult for people to get a position these da
Over the 25 years that I have been in sales and consulting I have always noticed how difficult it was for any woman in a position of any semblance of authority. Not only getting there but in dealing with the day to day agenda that being a woman can attract from \’colleagues\’ In direct Sales, which is a tough, in your face, no holds barred, environment the level of sexism is high. It is not as bad as it was in the 80\’s and 90\’s thankfully but it is still there. I have nev
I have sat through many presentations in my previous life as a Sales Director at companies like Telewest, Cable London and Holiday Ownership Exchange and believe me, I feel your pain when it comes to Slides or Powerpoint presentations. As soon as you walk into the seminar room and you see the laptop and computer your heart sinks because you KNOW that not only have you got to listen to someone, you have to read the slides and, probably, make notes. I love French Cinema and I s
Have you ever read a blogpost and wondered what it was about and then, for whatever mysterious reason, you started to think differently and realise that this is one of the most relevant blogposts to you? I find that when I, think about the other possibilities these teachings will give you, and you open your mind, to me, its as if this is going to help take you to the next stage. I am an NLP trainer. That’s what I do. I teach people how to sell, how to Firewalk, Glasswalk and
Will it be you who will shape your life, or will you let circumstance shape your life for you? Many people live day to day without a real sense of purpose. They know that they want more out of life, but they can’t seem to put a finger on exactly what it is. They believe their fate is due to a lack of career, money or the freedom to do what they want, how they want. Actually, what they may be longing for is a purpose in life, a mission and a target to aim for. In a football ma
More In building your winning team don\’t be afraid to pick people who are stronger, faster, smarter, better organized, braver, more ambitious, funnier or more pleasant than you are. Ask your best people for recommendations. Always opt for quality. Remember to delegate. Giving people tasks gives them a purpose. When they have a purpose they become responsible. When they have a purpose they see the future. You want your team to be built on excelle
It\’s a difficult moment. Someone approaches you, at a party or a function and asks that age old question…
\”What do you do?\”
Even on something like Twitter, I have online friends who ask. For example, Mark, otherwise known as http://twitter.com/Scorpion760 writes occasionaly: \’Follow him but I don\’t know what he does\’.
(by the way…if you are on Twitter…follow him – and I know what HE does)

Some people! I get emails asking me:
Have you stopped writing on here? Err…No! 😉
Are you ill? What? Because I haven\’t posted for a couple of weeks? (I don\’t \’do\’ illness!)
Are you doing something else? As opposed to doing what I do? Never! It\’s amazing how a lack of input on a blog makes people think you have moved on…even only after a couple of weeks… …so, No. I have not stopped writing on here 😉
I have not been ill (just busy) 😉
I would never do something other
…\’Louder Than Words\’ is a great book by Joe Navarro. Who is Joe Navarro?? Not many can say they were personally approached to join the FBI, but this is exactly what happened to Joe Navarro while he was working as a police officer at the tender age of 23. He accepted their offer and became one of the youngest agents ever to join the renowned investigative agency. Joe spent the next 25 years at the FBI, working both as an agent and supervisor in the areas of counterintelligen
Let\’s take a look at a powerful NLP technique you can use right now. I teach this one to people who are about to stand in front of groups and speak or who are going to be stepping on stage or who need a little boost. Here\’s how it works… Think of three times in your life when you felt very powerful and in control. Write them down (one sentence describing each). Now stand alone in a room. Think of the first situation. Recall it in full color with sound and anything else that
I have read John Assarafs book, The Answer and I highly recommend it. Here is a very insightful interview from Success Magazine in 2010. Buy the book, The Answer, TODAY and read it!

I saw the movie \’The Iron Lady\’ yesterday. I am glad that I did because I have waited to see this from the very first moment I heard that it was in production. I have enormous respect for Margaret Thatcher (MT) and have read her memoirs. My only regret is that I have not met her…yet! Although the movie is well made it isn\’t about MTs political history and achievements.
It is about old age, dementia and memories. If you are looking for political intrigue, you will be disapp
2012 is the year the world ends. 2012 is the year the Mayans say it\’s going to be \’game over\’. Errm… Actually: 2012 is a year of great opportunity. Can you imagine believing the rubbish about the end of the world only to find that you sold your business and your home and spent all the money for nothing when, surprise, you wake up next morning and you are still here? And, what\’s more, so is everyone else? It\’s New Years Day today. What are you doing? LOST: One whole ye

A new low was hit on the Jeremy Kyle show today. That actually takes some doing when you have a TV program filled with pikies, diddycoys, social security scroungers, numptys, liars, cheats, prostitutes, drug addicts, wife beaters, psychopaths, sociopaths, delinquents, illegal immigrants and cowards. I am a pretty haphazard viewer of the show. If I am at home I watch it and laugh. Like catchphrases, Kyle has a few things he has to say in every show like: Put something on th
Are you done with all of your holiday shopping yet? I’m taking off Friday for Switzerland again. It has been a regular thing for a few years at Christmas. Wherever you’re going, I wish you a safe trip. And lots of great food, drink and good company! What is on your Christmas list for Santa this year? No matter what you ask for, the one thing you really need to ensure that next year you get exactly what you want will NOT come from Santa. Nor will it come from anyone else! I
First of all, I am sorry that I haven\’t written on here for a while. I have been checking this blog and my Twitter and Facebook feeds and I have been following many of you on those platforms online and via friends and clients. It has been avery changeable, happy, difficult, rewarding and eye opening year. I am SO ready to begin a new year. I can\’t wait. Big changes in my personal and business life. Relocation. Expansion of business….so much to do and so much energy to make
I got this email from my mentor, Bob Proctor, and I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy! Hi Dave, The first ten years of my life were spent in Owen Sound, Ontario. It\’s a small town a few hours north of Toronto. I can vividly remember spending the summer days with my family at Harrison Park where there was a really great swimming pool. I would watch as the older kids went up the ladder to either jump or dive off the high diving board. They were having a great time. Wanting t
The Lion King is out in 3D. I saw the movie when it came out in 1994. I saw the Video. And then the DVD. When I was in Disneyland in Florida in 1998 we went to see the live show in the Animal Kingdom. I then saw the Stage Show in London. I have seen enough of the Lion King so I won\’t be bothering with the 3D version. Isn\’t it amazing how often children watch the same DVD over and over again and never complain? They only complain if you don\’t let them watch it. How many t
What I Learned From Steve Jobs Many people have explained what one can learn from Steve Jobs. But few, if any, of these people have been inside the tent and experienced first hand what it was like to work with him. I don’t want any lessons to be lost or forgotten, so here is my list of the top twelve lessons that I learned from Steve Jobs. 1.Experts are clueless.
Experts—journalists, analysts, consultants, bankers, and gurus can’t “do” so they “advise.” They can tell you what
