We are either doing activity that builds our relationships or doing activity that erodes them. -Kristie Van Luween This week, an internal bank "community" meeting was dropped into my lap to manage.(well, that certainly is the way it felt.) A colleague asked me to "help him" manage a meeting. When the proverbial curtain went up, he was nowhere to be found. Needless to say, I was not happy. I grumbeled all the way to the office. The entire meeting was now my responsibility. Man...

Eleanor Roosevelt said "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." I had the priveldge of visiting two distinct beaches along the New Jersey shore this summer and each beach and its corresponding town carried its own specific vibe. Where does the vibe come from? I believe its a compilation of various energies, but the most influential could be its human population. Standing in line at Sundea's Best, I heard a group of people talking ...

Nothing gets me more annoyed and exhausted than trying to communicate with a person “hard-of-hearing” and I don’t mean “hearing” in the literal sense of the word. Have you ever had a colleague, friend or co-worker that did all of the talking and ZERO listening? (Notice my past tense word choice) Even when they ask a question, they don’t even listen to your reply! Ugh! I tend not to keep them around. Active listening is to listen with all of your senses. When I have a conver...

The puppy’s name is: Redford, the Lil Red Dog, also known as “Red”. Fondly remembering, Clifford, the Big red dog Naming rights belong to my dear friend, Josh Zinder. Josh reminded me of my chain gang of animals. SLIM the rescue, my son’s cat SKIM and now “RED” the lil red dog. What sealed the deal? Funniest thing happened, when I took “red” to the vet Monday, I heard the vet tech say...”put the REDHEADS in room 2”. I realized they were talking about ME and my PUPPY! #redhea...

Life is fast paced and demands a lot from us both personally and professionally. Between tweets, and posts, emails, meetings, calls and events, I decided to slow things down and enjoy some summer vibes. We have been contemplating a new puppy for over a year and I decided to stop waitng and take some action. Many of you know my cat SLIM. I jail broke SLIM from death row at an inner city kill shelter in Philadelphia 5 years ago. He has been my bestie through thick and thin. I o...

  What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.   -William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet   Recently, I attended a networking gig in Newtown, PA with my friend Laura Queen. A small group of new acquaintances sat around a pub table and performed the art of getting to know one another. Cleverly, one of the gentlemen said “I know a quick way to get to know someone, would you like to know my secret?” I was willing to play the game and sheepis...

  How well do you know your colleagues? What we do for a living, might not explain who we are as an individual.   I’m proposing for membership at The Union League and it is no easy feat. The proposal process requires work, connection, commitment and persistence. Characteristic of the American people. The process is ensuring that prospective members are the type of member The League is looking to admit. I am very hopeful I make the grade and that they let me in the front door...

They hired this amazing professional speaker named Alan Stein, Jr. author of Raise your Game to speak ...

I used to get in trouble for talking in class when I was in grade school. In high school, my German teacher gave me detention for talking too much in class. Although she said, we could talk as much as we wanted, as long as it was in German. She lied. In college, I taught aerobics and kickboxing-now I was shouting for an hour straight! Maybe talking in class is a sign of some other skill set? My son is a talker. He could talk the ears off a brass monkey. Hmmmmm.. The art of ...

Every decade provides a new opportunity. Looking back, I recall my 20’s being about the gym, teaching aerobics, body fat percentage, climbing the instructor popularity ladder at NYSC with my “groupies” and going out to the hottest clubs. My intensity and thirst for knowledge began to grow, as I unleashed my inner geek. Nothing seemed more important than achieving these great heights. In my 30’s it was all about climbing the corporate ladder and proving I could be at the to...
