4 Principles for Awesome Email Responsiveness

4 Principles for Awesome Email Responsiveness

I’m a responsiveness junkie. Especially when it comes to email. I strive to answer every (professional) email within 24 hours and it drives me absolutely bonkers when I can’t. On the flip side, I get a bit annoyed when I don’t receive answers in a timely manner. I don’t hold others to the same standard I hold myself to (though some requests obviously deserve it), but is it really impossible to get back to me within a couple of days?

Strengthen Your Leadership Position with Humble Confidence

Humble confidence will strengthen your leadership position. Not many people follow a meek leader, but with humble confidence, you’re not meek.

Leaders inspire. They cast and articulate a vision and they motivate others to pursue it. They bring people together to accomplish something that’s greater than any single person…even greater than the sum of all the parts. 

For a leader, one plus one is three. For a manager, one plus one is still two. 

Without confidence, most people will never follow.

Imagine this. You’re in a restaurant and having a great time with a group of friends.  The waiter comes to deliver your meal, and, gently places a bowl of white rice in front of a friend. The friend, who has just returned from a long trip, explodes. He berates the waiter and becomes belligerent, angry, and almost violent.

What gives?

At the very least, you’d probably find the situation to be odd. You might wonder what has gotten into your friend while he was away. More likely, you would scrutinize the behavior and walk away with a negative impression of the fellow. If you’re assertive, you may be outraged and decide to put him in his place.

Unless you knew the backstory.

4 Actions We Can All Take to Reclaim the “United” States of America

The other day I stumbled across an entirely ignorant and inflammatory post by Ann Coulter on Facebook. Rush Limbaugh does this type of idiotic thing all of the time. We’ve seen similarly ignorant and distasteful thoughts spew from the mouths of Bill Maher and Chris Matthews in the past.

These people are entertainers, hungry for attention, but, they disguise themselves as politicians and they are having a major, negative, impact on our country.

I typically avoid talking about politics. Today’s American politics are divisive and poisonous. They pull people apart – not together.  I don’t want anything to do with that.

But I’m scared.
