The Power Of Listening And Building Rapport

build rapport with the power of listeningOne of the most vital skills for any effective communicator is the have the power of listening. The skill of listening isn’t taught in school, and it’s something that should be developed more. Listening is a powerful skill that can be learned effectively and practiced. It’s amazing how much more respect and esteem you will get by listening rather than talking constantly.

Isn’t it funny how sometimes you can link a specific phrase to someone? I once knew a guy called Ray kept saying “I hear you” when he was listening to me talking. Even though I liked this characteristic, I often wondered whether he was saying that because he actually heard, or that he maybe disagreed with what Continue reading

What To Do When You Lose Your Focus.

It's easy to lose focusWith all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!

I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading

What You Learn Today, Take Action On Today!

Take Action todayThere is no time like the present is there? If you’re learning new skills in your business to help you progress, it’s vital that you take action today on what you learn. This enables you to find out more about what you have learned by experience. Too many times people have committed to learning new skills, but keep waiting for the time they’re more familiar with the task before they actually DO anything. How can this work? You really need to know what works NOW, not after 3 weeks of learning. Test what you learn by taking action on the things you have learned.

Taking action right away will help you know you’re doing things correctly, or whether you need to look at the procedure again. There may be times when you need to readdress or “tweak” things to suit your own particular style. Either way, Continue reading

Don’t Argue: Ask Questions

don't argue, ask questions insteadThey say “It takes two to tango”. Well, it also takes at least two to argue. It’s not possible to have an argument with someone if there is no reaction. My advice is don’t argue. If you need to find solutions to create a win/win outcome, then arguing isn’t going to serve you. The best way to reach a reasonable and acceptable outcome is to ask questions.

In coaching it’s normal to encourage people to ask questions so the other person can hear the potential solution in their own words. It’s said that coaches don’t ask questions to hear the answer themselves, but Continue reading

Life Is About Choices And The Decisions We Make

You Must Dance Like Nobody Is Watching In Business.

sing and dance like nobody is watchingAre you prepared to “dance like nobody is watching” to achieve your dreams and goals?

It’s far too easy to get “bogged down” with things and distracted when you have your own business. There is also the tendency, especially with online business things, to assume that something “doesn’t work”. Instead of just getting on with the job and finding out by taking action, the assumption is enough to stop the person from doing what is necessary.

It’s what you do when nobody is looking that matters. You Continue reading

Why Being Scared Of The Future Should Be Banned.

fear of what\'s aheadIt’s true that many are afraid of what the future has to offer. Why is it that the future is so scary?

I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?

Because of the reaction he was getting to his work! Outside influences were the issues that were making him think he wasn’t good enough. What could he do to make this change?

I believe there are Continue reading
