Selling your innovative ideas
Any innovative project owner faces a paradox: the novelty nature of his/her idea is precisely what gives it value; yet, it is also what generates reluctance. How can you release these brakes to get your innovative ideas across better?
Get back into the habit of asking questions
Business leaders are rarely represented as people who question themselves. Yet, managers should be equally able to question as they are to affirm; but it seems this capability has somewhat been lost. How to get it back?
Conflict: inevitable yet useful
Conflicts are inevitable in a company. They even have their usefulness by allowing us to uncover the diversity of outlooks and to manage dilemmas. How can we channel these conflicts towards a productive outcome?
Reaching an executive management position
Becoming a senior executive does not only involve taking on extended responsibilities: the conditions of success are often different from what we expected. How can you best prepare for these new demands?
Changing habits while maintaining your energy
Relying on habits enables us to save our energy. Yet, it happens that these habits are no longer suited to a situation or needs that have changed. How can we evolve them?
We all have a natural preference for what is familiar to us. Yet, to adapt to circumstances, companies and their staff must constantly reinvent themselves, which requires that they get out of their usual thinking patterns. How can you nurture this healthy habit?
Dealing with a “difficult” boss
What can you do when faced with a “difficult” boss? Rather than enduring him/her, you should rather seek to modify your relationship with him/her. By understanding the underlying triggers behind your hierarchical superior’s stance, how can you influence his/her attitude and behaviors?
Sharpening our self-awareness
Self-awareness is a determining factor in professional success. It is also a complex and intimate topic. How can we develop the means to function with a better understanding of ourselves?
Networking: a competency that needs developing
A good network is a recognized factor of professional success. To develop it, an approach that is methodical and targeted is more productive than one that is empirical. How can you build a useful network without incommensurate effort?
A more powerful memory
Having a good memory is an undeniable advantage; it helps reinforce influence, and attract credibility and respect. Luckily, memory is not an innate capability: with some technique, you can train it. How can you develop your memory?
