Emotionally Intelligent Negotiation Workshop
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” –Sun Tzu The word negotiation often implies there are a winner and a loser. If we don’t win, then we lose. But why is there a negotiation in the first place? Is the intent to co-create relationships and workable outcomes for all involved? In a perfect world, we can look at negotiations as [...]
What's your social listening strategy?
Let’s face it, most of us make purchase decisions emotionally, rather than logically. However, the trend in marketing is focused on big data, filtered and sifted, often to get the results that validate our company and products rather than to divine what the customer wants. For decades brands have focused on selling the product on hand rather than identifying and filling th [...]
Losing the stress in the hospitality biz
Nobody who has ever worked in the hospitality industry is oblivious to the stress and fatigue that comes with the territory. Long hours on our feet, demanding and challenging work situations can add up to sleepless nights and wondering why we do this! It’s common to turn to maladaptive behaviors like drugs, alcohol, overloading on late-night video games and simply not [...]

Emotional triggers happen to us all day, every day. A trigger can be pretty much any topic that makes us feel strongly, whether that’s negative or positive. They can be a memory, a conversation, or simply a feeling that we respond to in a certain way. Triggers can spark joy, happiness, frustration, fear, sadness, anger, and a host of other responses. Some good, some not so [...]
Relationships first - #MindfulSocial with @BryanKramer
On the show this week is Bryan Kramer. We’ve been friends for years, and seen the changes in social media marketing from what used to be seen as a marketing tool to people actually want to communicate with each other, and how moving from the hustle of a marketing agency has changed his outlook on work and life. Bryan speaks frankly about what it’s like to go from th [...]
Why retreats are important
I remember the first retreat I went on. It’s been some years now, but I remember how nervous I was. Thinking I’d stick out like a sore thumb, maybe judged as a newbie. Could I last 3 days? I really had no idea what was going to happen beyond what I’d read in the brochure, and that was pretty slim. But I needed a break for myself, and some help figuring some stuff out, [...]
What do you really know about #caregivers?
Did you know there are more than 40 million Americans caring for a family member or friend? Many of them are working a full-time job (or more) while also dedicating 20-40 hours a week* as a caregiver for a family member, friend or neighbor. There are a lot of assumptions made about who caregivers are and what they do. As a caregiver myself, and through my work with caregiv [...]
The #MindfulSocial podcast with @mckra1g
My guest on Mindful Social this week is Molly Cantrell-Kraig. Boy, does this woman have a story! She's been through the wringer a few times in her life, yet she's managed to do so much more than survive, she's thrived. Her new book Circuit Train Your Brain- Daily Habits That Develop Resilience is such a great read. You know by now that one of my favorite topics is resilience an [...]
