What Does a Great Résumé Look like in the 21st Century?

For those people reading this article who are old enough to remember, even as little as a decade ago, a résumé was a simple document which provided some personal details (name, contact details, qualifications etc. and a listing of jobs held (with some detail on what work was done)

What Leadership Role Do You Play?

Everyone plays a number of roles as a leader and in their relationships with others. The essence of personality, according to Raimundo, is the sum of the roles I play.
“And what do you do?”
How many times have you been asked this question? How many times have you asked it? My guess is more than once or twice.

When answering this question, most people respond with their job title or their job function: I’m a banker, I’m the CEO, I’m a teacher. Or they launch into their ‘elevator pitch’. We define ourselves often by the major role we play in life. And you know that you are much more than your job: I’m a CEO, husband, lover, father, child, brother, skier, scuba diver, teacher, sleeper, trainer, coach, friend, driver, passenger, dog-walker, saxophonist, cook, customer, eater, cleaner, golfer, author, writer, musician, listener, talker, leader, manager, accountant, salesman, communicator, website builder… and that’s just the more positive ones today. Am I good at all these? Not all, and not always. There are days when my golf, for example, is fluent and near perfect, today was not one of those days. Today, I was a “shank it in the water, find every bunker, slice it out of bounds” golfer.

Normal role development
Everyone plays a number of roles in their relationships with others. The essence of personality, according to Raimundo, is the sum of the roles I play.

As a leader, the way we relate to other people is through a role. The role we play must be complimentary, and must include a common link. My effectiveness as a leader is dependent on the effectiveness of the relationship which is the link between the roles. It is the “power” between me and […]

Touch My Heart – Communicate with Impact

Communicate with Impact
Ideas are the currency of the 21st century.

The ability to communicate your ideas persuasively is the single greatest skill you need to accomplish your dreams

Spreading your ideas in the 21st Century requires a 21st Century model of communication
Let me introduce you to HUGS

Neuroscience research using brain scans reveals that stories stimulate our brains, enabling the speaker to connect with the audience and making it likely that the audience will agree with the speaker’s point of view. So what’s happening inside the brain? Once we know this, we can deliberately structure our communication to engage our audience and, stand a greater chance of helping them understand a new point of view.
PFC Theatre

Your Pre-Frontal Cortex (PCF) is like a theatre stage. When you focus on one thing, it’s like an actor on stage. And we can keep 3 or 4 actors on stage at most at any one moment (consider how you remember phone numbers).

Information from the outside world is like actors invading the stage from the wings.

Information from your inner world is like audience members climbing on stage.

At any given moment, millions of bits of information are vying for your attention.
Getting Attention
We give attention to anything unusual, new or potentially threatening. This is the role of your Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC).

When something novel or unusual is perceived in the ACC, it triggers the production of cortisol (our main stress hormone) from the Amygdala making us feel distress.

And we immediately pay attention to something threatening.

Keeping someone’s attention
We can sustain someone’s attention by increasing the tension in the story. We become anxious to know “what happens next…”

Once we have sustained attention long enough we become emotionally attached to the characters in the story, we empathize with them, thanks to another neurochemical, Oxytocin […]

Imagine that you are stressed out, overworked, overly pressured and don’t get the recognition you deserve. This may be so close to reality that you won’t find it hard to imagine! You want to grow in your career, but trapped by your current lifestyle and there’s a genuine fear that you may be close to burning out.

One day, a friend mentions that she has been helped by a coach and suggests that you do the same. At first, you resist. You’ve seen the hundreds of articles and adverts promising a silver bullet solution to organise your life, reach your dreams, orchestrate your career and get on top of your life.So let’s get this out of the way now:
There are no silver bullets; no quick and easy solutions; it will not happen overnight.

There are times in life and work when we would benefit from the experience, wisdom and knowledge of people who have been in similar situations. If you are looking for one such person, then you are looking for a coach. But how do you make sure that you get the most out of it?

What’s Better Today? How to Grow and Learn into the Leader You Can Be” helps and guides you in getting the most our of your own coaching because, for most people, being coached is a new experience.

In Part One, “Starting Out” – you will learn if you are ready to be coached, and if so, what sort of coaching will work best for you right now and thus how you can go about choosing someone to […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Earn your Luck

Earn your Luck
Do you believe that to succeed you just have to be lucky?

In honour of my second favourite day of the year, St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I’d share some thoughts on being lucky. “Luck” hints to us that all good things are the result of chance. Some people are lucky, some aren’t.  Or so the conventional thinking goes.

But the truth is, fortune isn’t found in a four leaf clover or at the end of a rainbow. Good luck follows hard work. It may seem that the people who get “all the breaks” do so effortlessly, but when you look deeper, you will find effort, persistence, and determination.

In other words, “lucky” people reap opportunities because they’ve worked hard to get where they are, not because circumstances have magically lined up to give them a smooth ride.

So often, “lucky breaks” in life have actually come about because you have worked diligently, and often unglamorously, to achieve your goals. In other words, good luck doesn’t come to you… you must go to it. And that’s why the key to being lucky isn’t chance. It’s good, old fashioned, roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen work.
Oh, and it’s my second favourite day of the year because it’s also my birthday!

Because I shall be celebrating in Phuket, Thailand whilst you all slave away, I thought it only right that I give you a present this year.

So, for this weekend, 16th and 17th March 2013 – from midnight PST Saturday (around 4pm Saturday SGT) till 23:59 PST on Sunday 17th (around 4pm Monday 18th SGT), you can download the Kindle version of my hot new leadership book from the Amazon store for free. I’d gift wrap it too but it’s kinda hard to wrap a digital file 😉

Be At Cause for Your Life – LeaderShift!

LeaderShift!

Challenge Yourself To Shift To New Leadership Excellence

Be At Cause for Your Life

I love this picture. It reminds me of the day I faced “The Wall” at Avoriaz, France. Admittedly I wasn’t going quite so fast, nor would I have looked so confident… more trepeditious with shaking legs and pounding heart than elegant and together. But still, I did it, and it’s a moment I am proud to recall.Making the decision to push myself off the edge of that near vertical ski-slope was tough. “The Wall” has a reputation for tripping up even the best skiers, let alone someone who could lose a few kilos and whose fitness levels could be a lot higher. But it was challenge I couldn’t resist. I had to prove it to myself. Foolhardy? Probably.The great thing about skiing though, is once the decision is made to go… changing your mind, turning around and going back… well that’s a lot more effortful than continuing down. That doesn’t mean that going down is easy, it just means that you have to constantly experiment until you overcome the obstacles… or fall over trying. True, it is dangerous, but the celebration and feeling of accomplishment when you finally make it… now that is priceless.

Life is not like skiing. Most often the easiest choice to make is the one that avoids the obstacles. Something happens to interrupt (or sabotage) our plans and we adapt to avoid the problem, which leads to undesired results and disappointment. Our vision is to survive, so when something else blocks out path, we adapt to avoid that too, and on and on it goes. In the end, we blame anyone else for our own disappointment and beat […]
