Bode Miller’s Comeback - 02/22/10 10:57 AM
Last night I watched the Olympics on TV. And I saw U.S. downhill skier Bode Miller win a gold medal. I had some faint recollection of Miller from the 2006 Olympics. I did some homework: although he entered those Olympics as America’s great male hope, he had a very poor week: no medals, two DNF’s (did not finish) and one disqualification.In 2007 and 2008 Miller won some races, but in 2009 he had a dismal season – not winning one race. He did however make the U.S. Olympic team late in the year.And now it’s 2010 and he has already won (2 comments)
The Disconnect Between Promise and Delivery - 02/16/10 11:44 AM
In 2000 Jet Blue took to the air with its first flight. Founder David Neeleman, had a precise prescription for success: “The right mix of a strong business plan, an experienced management team, dedicated employees, a great product and service, service, service.”In the last decade Jet Blue went from start-up to major carrier. Neeleman is out and outstanding customer service is no longer critical for survival.While Jet Blue still touts itself as “#1 in customer satisfaction,” I am not sure what that means. Tried to change a Jet Blue flight online lately? How about print a boarding pass?Last week I took (1 comments)
It's the Saints! - 02/08/10 11:48 AM
After 42 years of futility, after one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, and just a few years after fans wore bags on their heads, the New Orleans Saints are today the best team in football. To me, the story is a metaphor for the principle of never giving up on your dream. Somewhere in our hearts we all harbor a serious dream. Something that would separate us from the pack … that would put an exclamation mark on the life we lead. For many of us, that dream falls by the wayside as life takes over. The demands, (3 comments)
The Tempo of a Sale - 02/01/10 12:00 PM
Whereas most people buy at some emotional level (and then justify their purchase with logic), it is the process of persuading a person to buy that I want to discuss today.Ironically, many salespeople (or other persuaders) lose a sale because they let their emotions get in the way of a well-conceived plan. Specifically, I think many people lose the ideal tempo or rhythm of a sale because they get emotional.Every persuasive event has a proper pace to it. Depending on what you are trying to persuade another to do, and who that other person is, there is a timeline you need (3 comments)
