There is a difference between first place and the rest of the field.

After the Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Football, Johnny Manziel, the owner made a lot of noise about Johnny having to earn his way to the top spot. Good try, but it doesn’t really work like that. Cream rises to the top. And not only does cream rise, it separates from the milk. This is part of the homogenization process of milk, and it doesn’t change in the process of leaders.

Apology speeches are best when they actually include an apology.

An apology needs to be an acknowledgment expressing regret or asking pardon for a fault or offense. An apology means something when the audience decides that it is authentic. The audience decides not the speaker. It is not an authentic apology until the audience identifies and accepts it as an authentic apology. Unless and until the audience decides that the apology is at the very least an “I’m sorry” and at the very most “I was wrong,” it does not count as an apology.

Many health clubs see an explosion of members every January 1. In conjunction with  a New Year’s Resolution to be more fit, Americans join fitness centers with the sincere or insincere belief that they will actually show up for a work-out.

As the weeks of a new year tick by, so does the motivation to start or end a work day with a work out. What if a New Year’s Resolution turned your eye inward rather than outward? What if your focus was on the internal you rather than the external you?

Keith Dambrot, says it this way, the worst thing you can do is make a gifted player over-think.  As Men’s Basketball Coach at The University of Akron and the first person to discover LeBron James on the elementary school playgrounds of Akron Oh, he should know. Great players play all on instinct versus thinking he claims. Sure, they have to learn the system and the plays. Then the challenge is to play by instinct when there is no time left on the clock.

Then comes your greatest challenge. Coach Dambrot calls it instinct; I call it your Inner Brilliance. You want to prepare and practice. Then when the spotlight of life is on you, you want YOU to come out.

30 million presentations are given every day. 90% are unbearable. Included in these numbers are countless CEO presentations. CEO’s speak to their Board, Bank, and other CEO’s. Sometimes they even speak to their employees in companywide meetings. How does an otherwise dynamic CEO become boring as a speaker?
