I received an e-mail last week from an individual who earns seven figures, has everything except parental approval. This individual although well loved and respected by everyone around him/her, is no longer willing to live due to parental related favoritism issues. You see, the parents favor the two older siblings merely because they are physically good looking.
This is a problem most therapists face in sessions, a prevalent negative parenting style that set siblings against siblings besides setting (both the favored and unfavored) children themselves up for future failure and self-sabotage. Carl Pickhardt, PH.D (Psychology Today Published on March 7,
Executive levels and upper management writing or grammar communications most be flawless, reflective of professionalism with acceptable business idioms. Business grammar and writing is duty bound to manifest an organization’s creditability, knowledge, flexibility, consistency, professionalism and clarity by a company’s CEO, chairperson and other upper level management. There is need for acceptable yet professional syntaxes, punctuations, business idioms and correct usage of syntaxes. Under stress and deadline, it is not uncommon for individuals to undermine professionalism in their choice of syntaxes, proper arrangement of sentences and definitions of terms giving room for speculative inferences’ by the readers.

Communication is defined as the activity of conveying information. Communication is derived from the latin word communis, which means to share (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
Communication as used in this write up is sharing of generated information and methods in transmitting company goals and objectives by company heads/CEOs. Chairpersons, CEOs and departmental heads communicate directly with upper level management expecting information to dissemble down to other workers without filtering.

My latest article, “10 Things I Know About Motivating Employees” is featured in this week’s Worcester Business Journal.
“Look for the dream that keeps coming back. It IS your destiny.” How many of us look outside ourselves for the answer to life challenges–waiting for someone else to bring our dream to us, and to make it come true for us? The answer to those seemingly unsolvable problems actually lies within. Trite as it may sound, if you can dream it, you can do it! You already possess the power within to achieve your heart’s desire. All it takes is recognizing the opportunities that are right in front of us every day, seizing those opportunities–and making them your own.
If there is something you have always wanted to do–something that speaks to your heart–don’t hesitate. JUMP! Step out on faith–and I mean deep water faith. Never let anyone say that you didn’t try. Whatever has happened in the past, forgive it, abandon it, release it. Who you are and what you do starts right now and right here.
It is Sunday, August 12, and it has been two weeks since I have been on the internet for fear of spoiling my Olympic fix for the night. What I found is that I am not alone. Of the 2.4 billion people around the world that watched the Olympics, there were several others who did not want to know results and those that did. Either way, the Olympics is the single largest event that unifies the world.

Are you a Mike Ditka type leader or a Phil Jackson type leader? Mike Ditka lead by force and ridicule. He yelled, he screamed, he threw things and he belittled people all the time. He won one championship. Phil Jackson on the other hand was calm, focused and positive. Most of all Phil Jackson was a teacher. Phil Jackson won 6 championships in Chicago alone. He also proved he could win/succeed with the same leadership style in a different town with a different team AND without Michael Jordan. Now that is leadership.
