Feel weird with people? Get your power back

Lots of Q’s about human behavior and hard conversations this week. Today I’ll answer a Q I get a lot about how to be yourself with people, especially at work. On our live call last week, Trina asked how to interact with her COO. I didn’t get to answer it live so here’s my response… Read More

How to sell without freaking yourself out :)

Last week you learned the first thing to do before selling someone is create a “relatedness” with them – i.e. establish a real concern for how they feel and what they need. You MUST have this before you dive in – skip at your peril. Once you do that, drop your agenda and speak directly… Read More

I imagine weekenders rolled in while sipping their morning tea & reading NYT (I like to pretend we’re the same and would make excellent roommates.) :) Here’s the page to sign up. If you’re on the fence, I… Read More
