4 simple strategies to engage a room full of people

We speak every day. It’s one of the first skills we learn as kids. But when it comes to public speaking, it’s a whole new kettle of fish.

Reduce risk losing major clients with these 5 tips

When a client asks you to do lots of work for them, it’s hard to say no. We get it. How could having work be a bad thing, right? 

Well, it’s not. Remember that old saying: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. In this case, the eggs are your business and the basket is the client.

Manage your time with this delegating leadership style

As leaders, it’s easy to bite off more than we can chew. It can consume us. 

We’re naturally control freaks and love to do it all. It’s most likely how we got to where we are now – showing that we can manage a lot.  

But when it comes to leading a team, we need to move away from this habit. We can’t wear all hats. That’s what we have a team for. And who’s going to lead them if you’re busy doing other things?

Our products are designed to help you understand your people better, and yourself. But how often do we stop to think about the personality about our company.
