It is time to get lean and mean for the new year!  I met two kinds of people this week:  the over-worked and the out-of-work.  Both are stressed, both are depressed…it’s just the paycheck that differs.  It is time to stand out from the crowd and own this year!  Two handouts are waiting for you at MyValueTree.com.  Get ‘em, get ready and get back here after weather and sports.

Make yourself indispensible at work and home by improving the quality of your thinking.  Give yourself an edge by becoming a critical thinker.  When everyone else is falling apart in the despair of emotional thinking, you can bring excellence in thought.  While each of us thinks, it is shocking just how much is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed and down-right prejudiced.  Today, we will tinker with the thinker.  Be here after weather and sports on WTIC, where we care to coach.

What a long time to be apart with many miles in between.  In the past seven weeks I have been with numerous groups and am sad to report the number of times Coach was in the damage path of bad bosses; trying to rebuild, re-energize, reengage, refresh wonderful people who are mission driven, hard working, heart totally in the game people.  Bad bosses, you are put on notice!  Today Coach delivers a wake-up call to all bad bosses who shut down people’s potential and make our organizations less competitive.

“UggaBugga,” Ray is the signature phrase we would hear from our porter, Tom, on the recent cross-country train trip while on the Southwest Chief.  Tom Fleshman, a true professional, a credit to his profession and one of the unsung heroes who creates a great customer experience every day;  not because management is watching, not because it is an Amtrak standard, but because it is Tom’s standard.  It is who Tom is.  Today we explore “Why Care?”  The art of delivering great customer experience.

Wow!  What a great and big country we have;  just returned yesterday from a business trip on Amtrak’s Southwest Chief.  Not only does one get to see incredible country all across the southwest, but you also meet a wide variety of people…from Jim who was just riding the trains for 11 days, to vacationers from Queens to business travelers who prefer trains to planes.  What quickly becomes apparent is the wide range of social skills and personal influence people have.  Today we explore “moving beyond you”…some simple lessons in improving your charisma and power.  Be here after weather and sports on WTIC where we Care to Coach.

 You in a good mood this morning?  I brought some donuts to put a smile on your face and get your day moving in a positive direction.  Got some sprinkles here, or maybe you’d prefer the maple frosted, or how about this nice jelly stick?  Do you realize what we are doing right now is a good thing to do for the people around you.  Research out of Ohio State Business School proved that people’s moods at the start of the day affected how they felt the rest of the day.  Today it’s time to check the “mood in your tude” right here on WTIC where Coaching Counts after weather and sports.

It is time to get control of how you come across to other people and stop those self-sabotaging behaviors.  Image management…on you?  You bet.  Today we decide to enhance our image and manage the perception of “looking smart.”  Didn’t say you were smart, but there is a lot you can do to make others think you are.  I just finished working with a multinational group in Norway and I saw this in action.  Want the keys to your future success?   Be here right after weather and sports…WTIC where we care to coach.

Hey, Ray, smiling faces…you remember what the Temptations said about them…they lie!  Remember what the O’Jays said about them…back stabbers!  Songs like these get written, and we all sing-along, because there is a kernel of truth in them.  Brace yourself as we get ready to explore the darker and hidden side of people…and YOU.  Beware; they could be right beside you at the table or in the next office at work.  Smiling faces will be unveiled right after weather and sports riding on 50,000 watts of pure WTIC coaching power.

Memorial Day weekend 2016 has arrived.  A time to memorialize, remember, the deeds of valor done for us.  Started three years after the Civil War to pay respect to the fallen, it was originally called Decoration Day and observed in May as spring flowers are plentiful.  Memorials are built as reminders.  Have you erected memorials in your life?  Are they touchstones to your future or tombstones to your past?  Sounds serious.  Be here after weather and sports as we dig into Saturday Morning Coaching.

What a week!  I am seeing an interesting theme start to emerge within organizations that can best be summed up with three words; not only in the organizations but in our state and nation.  We seem to be swimming in it without even noticing it.  It is subtle, it is dangerous and it can threaten your livelihood.  Just three little yet powerful words.  To prepare, go to MyValueTree.com and take today’s assessment on your Emotional Quotient and be here after weather and sports as we explore “10 hands.”

We have people getting ready to make decisions today based on the myths they tell themselves.  They have been listening to the message in the myth for so long that they miss the marvelous moments in life.  People are self-sabotaging; they believe the lies they tell themselves.  Get today’s handout “5-S’ing Your Mind” at MyValueTree.com and be here after weather and sports as we “mulch the myths” guiding our lives.
