It seems like a simple, clear-cut statement on the surface; someone else is getting credit for my work and I’m mad about it. But is it true? Are you really doing all the work and getting none of the credit? What are you really saying when …
 
Today we are tackling the question…is it ever OK to ramble? OK, now I can't get the Rambling Man out of my head. Thanks, Allman Brothers. I mean, it's a different kind of rambling. But still. Have you ever talked and realized that you're going on and on without making a point? And then said something like, "Oh, sorry, I'm rambling?" You're not alon…
 
Asking is awkward. We stumble around our words or avoid asking because sometimes it seems easier to do without. There are times when I say to myself... "I don't really need help; I can handle this on my own." Then I work twice as hard while being mad about doing it all myself. Or when I want to have a conversation with someone I perceive as having …
 
I thought it was time to do a little series, and I'm excited to talk with you about the lies we tell at work because we lie, ya know? Now there are all kinds of lies that we tell, but I think some of the most tragic lies we tell are the ones we tell ourselves. It's often these lies that keep us from communicating effectively with each other. They k…
 
Today we’re talking about whether you should use notes when you present. The struggle is real. If you’ve presented, you’ve probably wondered how is it OK to use notes?

If you want to be direct, lead with what you need. (how's that for direct?) It sounds simple, yet it can be a struggle for many. It's difficult to lead with what we need because it feels risky. It seems easier or safer to explain ourselves first before we get to our point. See if you can relate to any of these examples: -asking for an increase in b…
 
Today we’re talking about one reason you’re misunderstood. This one is going to smack you in the head like “duh”. One reason you’re misunderstood is because you’re using words that people don’t understand. Here’s a fun statistic: A new word is created every 98 minutes. That means there are approximately 15 new words created per day, 105 words per w…
 
Giving your boss feedback can be scary. Your boss makes decisions that impact your pay, job responsibilities, and promotions. Your boss is human, too.

When was the last time you heard a phrase like this? "The meeting was a complete train wreck." "Bob is a disaster in front of clients." "I'll never find the right candidate." Really?

Have you ever had an instance when you thought you communicated clearly but based on the results, you clearly didn't? Maybe you thought you prepared well for a meeting, only to find out afterward it was like you said nothing at all. Perhaps you got a ton of questions about what you covered, or you discovered no one did any of the work? You talked b…

There's a better way. Instead of avoiding, menta…

It’s no wonder you hate public speaking. Why your hands get sweaty, your heart beats fast; your mouth goes dry. Why, when something goes wrong, you panic, why you spend hours practicing only to end up forgetting what you have to say. It’s no freakin’ wonder. It’s no wonder why you say things like “I’d rather get in a car wreck” than do that present…
 
My native language is typo. I speak and write typo, and while I use spell check, grammar check, Grammarly, and occasionally an editor who extends mercy upon me, I still mess up. It's important that you know this about me before you listen further. If you are looking for perfection, you won't find it here. If you're looking for authenticity, you've …
