They had the facts on their side. Moreover, they had money. Worst of all, they had a gaggle of lawyers that just made the case down right unpleasant. In spite of this, as luck would have it, they were missing one very crucial thing that they had never learned in law school. Something big firm life had failed to teach them. Quite simply, they were limited in their thinking to that which was rather than that which could be.

Do You Make These 5 Mistakes When Trying to Get Paid to Do Work You Love?

Do You Make These 5 Mistakes When Trying to Get Paid to Do Work You Love? | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

What does it take to get paid to do what you love, to follow your passion? Most people don’t get it.

 

I know, because I was one of those people.

Not everyone is cut out to leave the 9-to-5 environment, and that’s okay, as long as they’re happy. But if you’re frustrated, lost, and confused about how to get paid to do what you love, then read on.

 

It’s no longer enough to throw a blog up and wait for fame and fortune (was it ever?). You have to be specific, strategic, and willing to take action even when things look grim.

 

I’ve spent half a decade doing this, and only in the last few years have things started making sense.

Destructive Management Behaviors or Beliefs

Destructive Management Behaviors or Beliefs | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

He pointed to what I believe is at the core of a good manager. A good manager works to position his team to do something wonderful. They tap into employees’ sense of purpose and build business success by reinforcing the company’s purpose, vision, direction.


It takes a selfless kind of management and is so simple it’s often overlooked or over-analyzed. When you engage employees and their hearts, minds, and talents, you do good for them and the company.

 

Unfortunately, there are destructive and unexamined management behaviors or beliefs that interrupt these engagement efforts.

How to have great conversation. Learn the 12 rules to great conversation and improve your social skills.

 

All great conversations share common elements. Familiarize yourself with each of the 12 Golden Rules, and you will improve your interpersonal communication skills immediately.

 

1. Great Descriptions
Do you want to sound more interesting? Then start with your descriptions. The best communicators use more creative names for things – instead of using obvious descriptive names, such as, “here’s some more beer…” try, “here’s some more poison…” or “here’s some more liquid courage…” or reference the commercial, “this Bud’s for you…” You get the idea? Don’t default to the trite word just because you’re used to always saying it that way...

Why most people DIE BROKE and how you can avoid it

Why most people DIE BROKE and how you can avoid it | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

When you think of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or any other billionaire, what image comes to your mind? Obviously, money and success. But have you ever thought about why they’re so successful, or how their thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors differ from yours? In fact, it’s the way they think, and the unique beliefs they embrace, that makes all the difference between the average person and the highly successful individual.


Here’s another question to ponder: Were they born with a natural gift for earning lots of money, or did they learn how to focus their brain’s intention and attention mechanism in such a way that earning and keeping money was a forgone conclusion?

How Ideas Spread With Social Media

How Ideas Spread With Social Media | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Have you heard of the expression social media myth? Would you recognize a myth if you heard one?

 

There are those who believe that social media is about joining the conversation, engaging with your customers and being authentic.

 

Then there are others who believe that if you can’t measure it, you can’t control it. For them, it’s all about setting goals, experimenting, testing, analyzing and measuring.

 

Why can’t we all get along?
The fact of the matter is that both are equally important. What draws people to social media (whether for business or pleasure) is the opportunity to have conversations with others and to share the stories that are important to them...

10 Secrets of Successful Leaders

10 Secrets of Successful Leaders | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.” But, becoming a great leader isn’t easy. Successfully maneuvering a team through the ups and downs of starting a new business can be one of the greatest challenges a small-business owner faces.

 

Leadership is one of the areas that many entrepreneurs tend to overlook, according leadership coach John C. Maxwell, whose books include The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership (Thomas Nelson, 1998) and Developing the Leader Within You (Thomas Nelson, 1993).

 

“You work hard to develop your product or service. You fight to solve your financial issues. You go out and promote your business and sell your product. But you don't think enough about leading your own people and finding the best staff,” Maxwell says...

How To Be The Best At Everything You Do

How To Be The Best At Everything You Do | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

“Be The Best – At Everything You Do”


Every single time I’ve said this to someone, they come back with an argument:

 

“But how can I be the best in the world at everything? Or even anything?”

 

I then explain and clarify: “I never said ‘best in the world’. I only said ‘be the best’.“

 

So, what’s the difference?

 

One is comparing yourself with everyone else in your universe, and engaging in a futile struggle to be ‘better’ than them. The other is only looking within at yourself – and asking “Did I give it my all? Could I have done more?”

 

Look, in the ultimate analysis, there is only so much you, me, or anybody else can do. We all come with our built-in limitations, restrictions and boundaries. No matter how eager and determined he is, a man without legs cannot win the world high jump competition, and a lady without eyesight can’t shoot brilliant world-class photographs...
