Regardless of their industry, chief executive officers inevitably confront the need to transition ownership and management of their business to others. Whatever form this transition takes — to the next generation in a family business, to a management team buying out the owner or to a third-party buyer — it involves a new set of risks and opportunities that differ from those encountered in normal operations. A CEO must be prepared to meet these challenges through a process of succession planning.

In the digital age, word of mouth is translated through the buzz created by your blog readers and social media followers when they view content that is worth sharing. Not just any kind; it requires authority – that is, your recognized expertise, positive reputation, and credibility in your field – to create long lasting, impactful effect that will help you stay relevant amidst all the developing technology, the increasing pace of your consumers’ lifestyles, and the changing content marketing trends and Google algorithms.

What does neuroscience have to do with cooperation and collaboration? In a word, everything. The brain is made up of neural pathways that are composed of bundles of neurons, many of which were forged early in life. Scientists used to believe that these pathways were frozen by age 25, but they now know that isn’t true. Your early brain development does influence the way you look at the world, process information, and connect with others, but with sustained and consistent practice, your brain can create new neural pathways. It starts by understanding your unique brain roadmap.

Tennis is all about footwork. As many Roger Federer fans know, watching a great tennis player is like watching a dancer. After each shot, he returns to the middle baseline, squares his stance, and gets ready for the next return. He hits a great shot and he’s back. He hits a poor shot, and he’s back again. He moves like a rubber band. The further from the baseline he gets, the quicker he is back.

I’ve seen it time and again, and I’m sure you have too: a high-performing rep is promoted into sales management but never becomes as successful as a manager as they were as a rep. Why does this happen?  The core issue is an irony that has gone undetected too long: certain sales instincts which contribute to a salesperson’s success are often the exact opposite of the what will help them succeed in sales management.
