How to Foster a Positive Work Environment? (4 min read)

Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. Businesses make up one of the largest social environments in the world, and where some of us may spend even more time on than with our own families. Organizations are where we continually engage with our peers and customers, some of whom may create stressful working relationships. We also engage with systems and processes, some of which may not function effectively.

I truly believe that whether you are a seasoned manager, or just starting out, the methodology of becoming a good manager and then a true leader is always the same; it’s about caring.

Why Do You Need a Succession Plan? (5 min read)

Caring and successful people think ahead responsibly and strategically. They do that at any stage of their career along with any role they take on in their personal life.

Part of my plan was making the present situation strong and keeping it strong when I move on. Many people who worked with me learned about it, and some became my mentees and/or successors. I mentored many to do the same and…

During my 20+ years in the workforce, I have had the opportunity to work with thousands of people with different backgrounds and cultures. The most important thing I have learned from my work experience and personal experience is that responsiveness is the key to building better relationships and achieving success. Non-responsiveness can destroy trust, loyalty and lead to significant errors.

Is it possible to succeed alone? (2 min read)

In short, no. Let’s start with this quote as an example: “No such thing as being self-made” – Cornel West. Cornel West is right. There is no such thing as doing it alone or being self-made. Those who succeed have only succeeded because someone supported and cared for them. Of course, there is self-motivation and drive, but those things are preserved in the person only through consistent reassurance by family members, colleagues, bosses and beyond. In other words, it is much harder to stay motivated as a person if you have no positive reinforcement and support. Supporters are what drive us to success, and that’s…
