Okay, before you have a heart attack, let me me explain my position on this topic.
Yes, you will need to market you product and services, however, of all your ad and marketing dollars spent – Do You Know If You Are Getting a Return on Your Investment? Even the great marketing & advertising executive, David Ogilvy stated “50% of Advertising works, I just don’t know which 50%.”
The issue is not if marketing & advertising works, it is really a question of what type of Marketing works for you and your business?
One of the known issues in business today is the element of complexity. As a Leader, you need to guide your people through the maze of complexity to a world of simple solutions and progress. So, what is the real issue?
Seems like confusion is higher ranked, mostly by default than purposeful actions on the part of leaders. I know, you’re asking “everyone is dealing with complexity so what can I do about it?”
Good question – really, I mean it 🙂 The only missing piece of the question is “how can you take responsibility to change the situation for your team?”

My recent article on the Three C’s to a Successful Life must have hit a hot button with you and a lot more folks! So, I thought, what else would be helpful to people seeking more success?
I remembered my friend Gary Blair a.k.a The Goals Guy and all the amazing work he has done for both individuals and organizations in leading success and achievement. Achievement is the trigger for success. The more you achieve relative to your goals and objectives in life, the better you feel about yourself. In fact, at that point you world takes on a new aura of happiness, success and positive feeling about yourself.
Therefore, I thought about how could I help you kick start your success over the next 3 months?
One of the hottest topics these days is about success. Seems a lot of people are trying to figure out how to be successful at work, at play or at home.
First thing is I admire the people who take a moment in their valuable time space to think about success. The truth is you are hard-wired for success, yet, sometime gets in the way. Distraction is the most common thing getting in our pathway to success – especially those of us who are continuously multi-tasking under the false assumption of being more productive. 🙁
When I began to think more about success I found a ton of information on the topic and got a little overwhelmed with the process of learning about success. Thanks goodness one of my natural strengths is problem solving and another strength is to simplify the complex into usable steps.
Those I discovered the 3 “C’s” to a Successful Life. This includes all the different “at’s” you desire doing for success . 🙂
Helping both large and small companies to select potential high performers for their team is one of our core strengths. Since 1990, I’ve seen and heard a number of comments – both full of wisdom and some lacking in thought.
The most important thing to focus upon in the hiring process is upgrading the talent level within your organization. This is the KEY to creating a high performance culture and improving your work environment. You know it is the quality of your teams and individuals that make the competitive difference in today’s marketplace.
Complacency in any area of the hiring and selection process can limit the effectiveness of the hiring process.
Based upon all my interaction with hiring managers and human resource executives, there are six universal myths I want to expose and discuss today. So, here are the Six Myths to Effective Hiring Processes…
Had an interesting observation last week during an intense dialogue about achieving goals. This dialogue crystallized a few important issues for me regarding the difficulty people have in accomplishing their “goals.” And I will share this with you now.
Seems the real issue begins with the initial commitment to an idea about setting a goal. Yes, I said ” initial commitment” rather than a game plan or anything else.
There are fundamental differences between setting – and committing – to a real goal. Most people choose to only set a “general direction” rather than a true goal.
Growth is the key factor in everything we do. From Business Growth, Opportunity Growth, Financial Growth or Personal Growth – the key connection is Growth. Positive Growth is more accurate.
Growth is our lifeline to the future. Think about periods of no growth – like the “Great Recession” several years ago. The decline in growth hurt – revenues declined, incomes declined, homes were lost, jobs were lost, morale was low, and people were naturally more negative about things.
Growth is the only thing that can substantially change the course of the low ebb tide of performance and mindsets. Without growth, we would still be in this mental and actual bind of negativity and decline.
So how can we improve Growth? What can leaders do to increase the opportunities for growth? What can individuals do to improve their growth opportunities? Here’s how…
