Quick Hits are 10-minute conversations designed to exercise your brain by letting you listen in on an unscripted conversation to hear other people‘s thoughts on a variety of subjects. In February of 2021 I and the members of my mastermind group thought other people might enjoy listening in on some of the lively conversations we were having. But we realized that no one was going spend 90-minutes listening to us going on about anything and sometimes nothing. Instead, we decided to pick one top ...

Having a lack of integrity, getting something "over" on someone, is beneficial in the short-term. Sometimes there are never consequences at all. Those without integrity often think people who have it are stupid for missing out on opportunity. If a child hasn't learned the value of doing the right thing rather than the easy thing, can they learn to …
 
I have noticed that when I ask this question, successful people will say success is about hard work and noticing opportunities. People who haven't gotten their "big break" yet will say success is all about luck and sometimes they can be pretty bitter about it. I asked Doug Crowe, Atif Agha and James D. Roumeliotis (that name was hard to say! Thanks…
 
Compassion is an important human trait. But it can also be seen as intimate and too personal to be in the workplace. I asked Sara Oblak Speicher, Marie Wright and Domenico Ciarallo how they thought compassion could be used in a professional environment. When I was editing this video I noticed the difference between the example Domenico provided of …
 
We know what it means when something doesn't "feel" right. And if you are like me, you've overridden that feeling and regretted it. But are there times when you go with the feeling and the other choice would have been better? I asked Dinette Rivera, Cole Galloway and Chris McLaughlin how they know when to go with their gut and when it's just fear t…
 
Some countries are starting to legislate if and when work communications can happen. I asked Jona Ohm, Frank Galindo, and Brandon Mahoney what they thought. It is worth noting that we are all from and based in the US. It is possible that a conversation with a more international panel would have come to a different conclusion. The two other Quick Hi…
 
I approached this topic from a personal/individual standpoint while Rick Alcantara took the corporate/public angle. Dr. Bob Choat and Karen Loomis added great points and real-life stories as examples. Do you have any tips for sharing bad news? Thank you to all the panelist for sharing their insights and perspectives on this challenging subject. To …
 
The advice to "just shine your light" is common enough that there are memes about it. But there is also this idea that it is possible to make others look/feed badly by being "too good." The easiest example is someone feeling guilty for having dessert or a drink if you choose not to; but there are countless other situations where you might be asked …
 
They are the same thing - sorta - both are letting someone know they did something incorrectly or that they can improve something. And yet, they aren't the same at all. After asking Audrey Cooper, Michelle Brady-Palmer, and Brandon Mahoney what they thought, it seems the difference is intent as well as how the information is received. It is entirel…
 
Change is a reality of life and being able to roll-with-the-punches is one of the few things that keeps stress at a minimum and happiness at a maximum. I asked Domenico Ciarallo, Diane Lang and David Horsewood for their thoughts on what mental flexibility actually is and how to better incorporate it into our lives. Listen in and then let us know wh…
 
I feel like small talk is an easy and useful part of regular interaction. By contrast, my husband is not a fan of it at all. I asked Doreen McGettigan and Stewart Wiggins about their experience and how they use small talk. Near the end of our conversation they even had a little impromptu small talk conversation that turned out to be a great example…
 
There seems to be a divide between people who think everyone should be tough-as-nails and just suck up abuse and those who think we should be kinder, gentler and leave space for each other. I grew up in the rub-some-dirt-on-it world. At the risk of being called a "snowflake" I tend to be in the second group now. I invited Ed Samuel, Cole Galloway a…
 
We know we "shouldn't" allow other people to control our emotions but when it comes to shame, some people seem to have a direct line to us feeling less-than. I asked Deidré Wallace, Gareth Russell and Tiffany DuBois-Morales for their thoughts and experience with the intense emotions of shame and humiliation. The conversation went deep right from th…
 
I invited James H. Lee, Rick Alcantara, and Atif Agha to share their experiences of the pros and cons of being friends at work. By the end of the conversation I felt like I am more cautious and see more downside to close friendships in the workplace than my co-panelists seemed to express. What do you think? Is being friends with the boss or a vendo…
 
We live in a world where there is too much to do and not enough time to do it. Too many of say things are important to us but we never actually do them. I asked Brandy Lawson, Sara Oblak Speicher, and David Horsewood how they decided where to put their attention and what was important. Do you have a method for making sure your time is spent doing t…
 
We are hardwired to want to be part of the crowd. Evolutionary standing out meant risking death. But we are no longer being chased by saber tooth tigers. To be successful we have to get ourselves noticed. I asked Dr. Bob Choat, Doug Crowe and Chris McLaughlin, who are successful in completely different industries, their thoughts. There are some gre…
 
You ask what is wrong and they tell you everything is great. You try to get to the bottom of the problem and they gaslight you, tell you you're making it up. But they are nasty and backstabbing. I asked Brenda St Louis, Michael Piperno, and Cameron Field for their thoughts on this all-too-common occurrence. Do you have suggestions that we didn't ge…
 
People who don't have integrity will cut corners, walk on others, cheat and even steal to "win." When how someone gets there is skimmed over and only the fact that they got to the end better/faster than anyone else, is cheating condoned? I asked Atif Agha, Domenico Ciarallo and Cole Galloway for their experience. I was surprised that the conversati…
 
Once again we have stumbled on a word that everyone "understands" but that means very different things to different people dependent on context. What does "leadership" mean to you? When Sara Oblak Speicher, Tim Hawkes and Stewart Wiggins joined me for this Quick Hits, I had suggested a different topic. But in the few minutes before I turned on the …
 
It's easier to keep a conversation from escalating at work than at home. It seems the more we care about someone and the more we trust them to "forgive" us, the more likely we are to allow a conversation to spin out of control. I asked Audrey Cooper, Philip Tate, and Michael Sicuranza for their tips for keeping difficult conversations in check. Lis…
 
Have you ever been sharing and had someone say "TMI" or "overshare" causing you to feel shame/embarrassment? It is a conundrum, being open and vulnerable is an important part of creating trust and rapport. But taken too far or in the wrong setting it can be seen as oversharing. I asked Atif Agha, Stewart Wiggins and Christopher Jerjian where they s…
 
You have to be willing to try to succeed. If you think there is no chance you won't try. I asked Melissa Vela-Williamson, David Blaise and Marie Wright how they keep moving forward in the face of beliefs saying they should stop. Listen in on our conversation and then let us know, how do you change your beliefs so you can do big things? To learn abo…
 
First we have to figure out what mojo is. Flow? Motivation? Both? I asked Kristin Bainger, Barbara Khozam and George Jerjian about mojo. The conversation is a mix of what each of us does and some ideas we share with clients. What do you do to find your mojo? To learn about the panelist, please visit their LinkedIn profiles.Kristin Bainger: https://…
 
It seems straightforward. You say, "thank you" and move on. But we all know that's not what happens. There are deflections, denials, awkwardness and all kinds of weird feelings that come up when someone compliments us. Even more odd, when we compliment someone else we want them to accept it and feel good about it. I asked Rick Alcantara, Cole Gallo…
 
You've agreed to do something and then realize that making it happen is either impossible or is going to create havoc in your life. Going back and saying "I can't do it after all" is awkward. I asked Wayne Buckhanan, Brandon Mahoney and Alison Coe to help me unpack why it is hard and how to do it in the best way possible. Listen in and then let us …
 
This conversation made it clear to me that men experience selling differently than women (at least me). A salesMAN being pushy is only annoying to the men on this panel. Whereas I have experienced pushy salesMEN as creepy. Simon gave a great tip for stopping a salesperson in their tracks. Take a listen and let us know what you think. To learn more …
 
The saying, "If your dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough" is pretty common. But says who? Why do dreams HAVE to be scary? Who gets to decide that? And why the _____ do marketing people try to use that idea to scare people into working with them? Markrete Krikorian, Clarissa Makhoul and Chris McLaughlin were kind enough to have this conver…
 
This conversation was SO mind-bendy! The lack of making a choice is a choice to accept whatever happens. I.e. allowing life to happen TO you. Always planning leaves little room for serendipity. Is there an ideal middle ground? I asked Kristin Bainger, Christina Kelley and Tim Hawkes to have a planned conversation. They learned it would be about spo…
 
The conversation is an interesting look at the role of creativity and curiosity and how each of us uses it in our lives. Listen in as David Horsewood, Ahmed Naseer, Stewart Wiggins and I talk about being and staying creative. Let me know in the comments if you like this format or gallery better. To learn about the panelists, please visit their Link…
 
This was a spontaneous conversation about self-sabotage recorded after we did a Quick Hit on a different topic. Listen in as Kristin Bainger, Bridgette Mihalik, Sara Oblak Speicher, and I talk about what self-sabotage happens and how to catch it. If you struggle with self-sabotage I highly recommend the book The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. To learn …
 
A few weeks ago I had this conversation with an all male panel (you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/CoR3cNyLAag). This time I asked the ladies. The conversations are strikingly different. As someone who works in the space where the messiness of life, work, expectations, goals and desires collide, sometimes with great chaos and distress, these c…
 
A lot of advice is given about finding a mentor. But what are the benefits of BEING a mentor? (Other than the "feel good" of doing someone a favor.) I asked Bill Lindquist, Brandon Mahoney and Stewart Wiggins their experience with having and being mentors. I'm not confident that we came up with a solid answer to the original question. What do you t…
 
If you search "executive presence" you will get a lot about what to wear and how you look. But in talking to Amy Harrill, Michael Sicuranza and Christopher Jerjian we decided it is more about how you engage with people. Take a listen and let me know what you think. Do the first seven seconds paint who you are forever? To learn about the panelists, …
 
This conversation got deep quickly as we talked about whether self-worth and self-esteem where driven by what we think others think or an internal mechanism. Listen in as Atif Agha. Wayne Buckhanan, Cole Galloway and I talk through the continuum and how each of us can be in a different place along it at any given moment. (And ignore the fact that I…
 
Having someone abuse our kindness never feels good. Where kindness ends and someone taking advantage starts seems to have a lot of variables. In this conversation I shared a story about giving away a rare treat as a child. I have always framed that story as someone who took advantage of my kindness. While editing I wondered if I was being kind or w…
 
Is activity that is just different from work just as good? I asked Audra Hammer Ross, Rick Alcantara, and Tiffany DuBois-Morales to share their experience. It turned into a conversation about taking time to be silent with your thoughts. Unless I am meditating or driving, that is rare for me. What do you think? Should downtime include quiet space? T…
 
This topic came up when I read a quote by Toni Morrison: "For me, success is not a public thing. It's a private thing. It's when you have fewer and fewer regrets.” My immediate response was, "Success has nothing to do with regret." But then I wondered if others might think differently. I asked Sara Oblak Speicher, Brandon Mahoney and Bill Lindquist…
 
Maybe you are like me and you want to take in information quickly and be able to recall it when you need it. Simon Coles teased me in this conversation about treating learning like a competitive sport - - he's not wrong. I asked Simon, Kristin Bainger and Matthew Douthit their thoughts on how to make the best use of information as it comes in. Not …
 
In a world where we are always trying to "limit" distractions, perhaps there is something to be said for allowing them to give your mind a much needed break. I asked Brigitte Skeene, Abigail McCloskey, and Michael Piperno what they thought about distractions and how they use them to help them be more productive. Listen in as we talk about the pros …
 
That breath stealing moment when you realized someone you trusted, even loved, has manipulated or taken advantage of you. The shock can radiate through your body like physical pain. I asked Catherine Kapferer, Brandy Lawson and Simon Coles about betrayal. The conversation was an interesting mix of self-reflection and self-protection. How do you mov…
 
Failure is such an odd English word. What does it actually mean? If you change your mind or pivot the direction of your business/career did you fail? I had an interesting conversation with Ava Diamond, Philip Tate, and Tim Hawkes about it. There were a surprising number of sports analogies. Although I should have expected it since three of the four…
 
There are whole books, websites and careers dedicated to helping people and companies build trust. But where is the line between positive trust and manipulation? We didn't mention it in our conversation but scams are, by definition a manipulation of trust. I asked Brandon Mahoney and Jona Ohm, their thoughts and we came to the conclusion that it is…
 
Work-life balance is thrown around A LOT, particularly at women. But what if it's not actually a thing and "balancing" is an unhealthy way to look at it. I had this conversation with Michael Sicuranza, Wayne Buckhanan and Andrew Baharlias (It is not lost on me that they are all men. That's just how it worked out.) They had some good insights into w…
 
When I do talks and trainings on communication and conflict resolution I like to tell this joke: "What is the difference between perception and reality? Perception is what you think. Reality is what I think." It's funny because it's true. Is reality just an agreed upon perception? Listen in as Brea Sorrells, Atif Agha, Rick Alcantara, and I grapple…
 
In many industries it is common practice to ask for and receive contact information to talk to existing customers. I have done it myself in the past. Even though I did my "due diligence" the guy turned out to be a huckster. Calling his references was a waste of time. In my business clients have 100% confidentiality. That means I don't ask them to b…
 
Feedback can be seen as advice giving or it could be welcomed as helpful. We didn't get into it in this conversation but I think mansplaining (whether done by a man or a woman) certainly falls into the inappropriate feedback category. Listen in as Brandon Mahoney, Simon Coles, Stewart Wiggins and I have this conversation that came on the back of Ho…
 
When you are looking to get better at something, the least useful but easiest thing for someone to say is, "You're really great!" I asked Brandon Mahoney, Simon Coles and Stewart Wiggins how they got people to provide useful feedback and learned there are some cultural differences. When are you most likely to help someone grow versus stroking their…
 
The original topic for this Quick Hits was, How to leave room that you could be wrong without allowing someone to gaslight you. We quickly realized that a healthy psyche usually leaves a little space for remembering something incorrectly or being mistaken. We also talked about how feelings come into play. Listen in as Ania Jarmulowicz, Tim Hawkes a…
 
This point comes up A LOT in Quick Hits conversations. The basic assumption is that mangers are about getting tasks done. Leaders are more strategic. If you're good at tasks can you become a leader? Can you be a leader and not understand the tasks? Listen in as Stewart Wiggins, Amanda Olivo Ulichny, Matthew Douthit and I talk through our thoughts a…
 
Self-delusion is hard to catch because, by it's very nature, we have no idea we are doing it. When I asked Matthew Douthit, Amanda Olivo Ulichny, and Stewart Wiggins this question we came to the conclusion that getting and accepting outside feedback was critical. That is easier said than done. Listen in as we talk through our thoughts on the subjec…
