The Six Characteristics That Separate Real Leaders From Mediocre Bosses Not all bosses are seen as leaders. Bosses and leaders are similar in definition but their characteristics are very different. For example, here's a few circumstances where leaders separate themselves from mere bosses. 1. Build trust A leader builds trust by guiding, motivating, and inspiring their team. Once this foundation is formed, increased productivity and job satisfaction will follow organically. To achieve this, leaders share their vision and their expectations to their employees. They also keep the communication open throughout the process. Micromanaging is a distinct trait of poor, ineffective bosses. Asking for project updates every 20 minutes. Shadowing an employee’s every move. Dictating how tasks should be completed. Controlling employees in every way possible doesn’t show great leadership. As a result, the organization suffers through decreased productivity and mediocre output. 2. Motivate Work can be a roller-coaster ride of emotions. People have their ups and downs when doing a project and stress is constantly lurking. Motivation is important to keep emotional and mental health in [...]
I woke up the day after the 2017 election compelled to share this article. We've all been taught many 'laws of success' over the years; reasons that explain why something or someone succeeds. We can't always take this on blind faith. If you're like most people, you want a healthy dose of proof. This is by no means a political stance or statement, but rather a poignant way of proving to you that success follows certain laws. Laws have no exceptions; rules do. The question raised by millions is "Why is Donald Trump President?" The answer may be summed up in one word. MARKETING! Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. Obama Won For the Same Reasons It happens to be the same reason Obama won in 2008 and 2012. Marketing. You've probably heard a dozen times: "Victory Goes To The One With Superior Forces at the First Points of Contact." Barack Obama and Donald Trump both [...]
In my never ending search for ways to better appeal to my audience, I sometimes venture into the dark recesses of the human psyche so that I might better understand my customers and even myself. I'm not picking on psychopaths here. Nor am I villainizing them. As I understand it, psychopaths are born the way they are - it's not a choice. A psychopath is generally someone who feels little or no real emotion, and instead has to fake it. They might lie a great deal. They have an inflated sense of self-worth. They use superficial charm and glibness to manipulate and con others. They lack remorse, guilt or empathy. And they constantly are in need of new stimulation. About 1 out of 100 people are psychopaths. Odds are you know at least one, yet you might not realize it. Remember, most of them are not killers as the media might portray them. But they can be incredibly charming and persuasive. Some psychopaths can find a person's weak spot in minutes, manipulate that person using that knowledge, [...]

Did you know that it's pretty easy to describe exatly how to create huge sales growth for your business? In fact, the holy grail of 'how to take your business to the next level' can be completely summed up in one simple formula: L x C x M x F = GP Looks strangely simple for a process that seems so difficult in real life doesn't it? Here's what it means: L = leads C = customers M = gross margin F = frequency GP = Growth Potential I won't go into all of the details here, but the basic assumption is that small incremental bumps in any one of the first four factors will ultimately yield substantial net growth for your business. The irony is that as simple as this formula might be to understand, actually implementing it and managing these different aspects of your business can be quite complex. Need some ideas? We're here to help as much or as little as you want. Call us.

Having spent the last few weeks meeting with and chatting to business owners, it became clear that they all seem to face similar challenges on a day-to-day basis. As I expected, they are all time poor and there was an ongoing sense from these company owners or directors that they should be 'hands on' and across every facet of their business. But, as they told me, they may know all about their business but sometimes they need expert support and guidance to ensure their company grows and increases profitability. Some of the challenges they faced included: Customers Customers are at the heart of any business. Without customers and the revenue generated then the business becomes just a good idea. One of the main challenges they faced was how to attract, retain and maximise their customers? For me, the key to winning new business and ensuring customer retention is providing not only great products or services but adding a great customer service experience. A strategy needs to be developed for ensuring this customer growth and maximizing revenues from existing [...]
