Bullies

There is a lot of talk today about bullies in the school yard but you can also find bullies in the workplace as managers or officers who use their position of power to bully their direct reports.  I have seen it happen time and time again but don’t let anyone destroy your confidence.  These people are insecure little people who are struggling to get notice and they are hungry for power.  Do your job well and that is the best way to kick butt!

Rewind the Tape and Rewrite the Script for your Future

Several years ago, I published a self help book entitled, Rewind the Tape and Rewrite the Script for your Future because I found that too many people allow their past mistakes and problems define their future.  The point of my book is that life is full of cobblestones so we have to make the best of them and learn from our mistakes because in the final analysis, it is not how you start out but how you finish that makes the difference!  The title says it all, you first start by rewinding or removing all the negative from your mind because you can’t undo the actual mistakes and start anew. 

People often ask me how do you do it and where do you find the time? It’s simple…If you want something bad enough, you will do whatever necessary to make things happen for you. I am unafraid of rejections and I will keep going after what I want until I get it. If I don’t get it, then it was not mine to have and that’s when I move on to my next goal!

After retiring from a company where I was employed for over 26 years, I believed that I had gained enough knowledge to write the book, Imperfect People Managing In An Imperfect World. Primarily, I realized that I had been so busy bestowing accolades on others, I forgot that I had a lot to be proud of as well. After all, I had taken over organizations that were failing or were being considered for outsourcing and turned them around. When I say turned them around, I am talking about financially and strategically positioning them for success. This didn’t just happen because I am so great but I do have exceptional organizational and people skills. But mostly, I was not afraid to say, look group, if things don’t change, we’re gone; I need your help in turning things around and we did it! But the book doesn’t concentrate on that as much as it offers management tips based on my own experience while telling my story and the things I encountered on my way to success.
