Responsive Communication in the Workplace and in Life (4 min read)

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. Respond to and Acknowledge Communication Very early in my career, I met several very accomplished senior leaders who became my role models.

What to do when you’re not the boss’s favorite? (4 min read)

Building a good relationship between you and your boss is one of the main to-dos for your career. Sometimes, because of personality clashes, work ethic issues on either party’s behalf and other factors, your boss may express negative feelings or show no support towards you. Instead of lashing out against your boss, it’s better to start to think of ways that you could work on removing the negative wave and improve your relationship with your boss – it’s possible! Keep in mind that the goal here is not to become best friends with your boss. Rather, it’s about establishing mutual respect. If the situation is…

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…

How to achieve a great end goal? (2 min read)

“Ends and Means must cohere” – Martin Luther King Jr. The ends don’t always justify the means, especially when there is a lack of care in the means. How could the end result be extraordinary and impactful when the actions you took to try and get there were not extraordinary and impactful? The message Martin Luther King Jr. spread with this short yet strong quote is clear: you cannot achieve a great end goal through not-so-great means and terms. They must cohere; they must work together on the same level. In a business context, cohering ends and means translates into approaching your goal with care…
