Don’t let that title scare you. I am not turning this into a health series and I am not selling any supplements.

    Persistence is good and virtuous. But it’s also hard. And telling someone to be persistent seldom goes all that well. We may know it, but don’t want to hear it – or even know what to do with the advice when we hear it.

    Many years ago when I was at Purdue, I was having a conversation with a friend who was in the process of interviewing for jobs after college. She was getting frustrated and when I gave her the advice to simply be per...

    While I’m talking about weeds in the video below, I promise you that this is not a gardening episode.

    Experience might not be something that you usually associate with “danger”. But in this Remarkable TV episode, I’m telling a story about my car and its gas tank and how my experience got me into a little trouble with the two.

    In this episode, I’ll talk about five keys to help you build greater confidence for greater success.

    I get asked this question a lot:

    How can I be more influential?

    And often times when I am asked this, it isn’t phrased exactly like that. It might sound more like…

    How can I motivate my team to do more?
    How can I better inspire my team?

    There are a lot of ways that it is stated, but the bottom line is that they are asking: how do I influence people?

    And I bring this up specifically because the way that the question is often phrase...

    Is more better? Maybe, if we are talking about ice cream.

As organizations become more global, communication becomes that much more important. This holds for public speaking, writing e-mails, or negotiating contracts. Sánchez...
