Courteous Fave

I talk a lot about Uncommon Courtesy in my communication workshops. Here’s something you could have heard in one of the.

 Project uncommon courtesy with every outgoing phone call by saying these five magic words within the first 10 seconds – ‘Is this a good time?                         

And you can quote me –

Phil’s Fave – on Time

Sounds like sharing often-heard concepts from my workshops and presentations is both useful and interesting for many of you. This Phil’s Fave is from a time management session –

‘If you paid yourself $100/hour, would you get your money’s worth from each task on your to do list? If not – dump it.’

(And … true to my rant about always identifying the people you quote …)

Phil’s Feb. Faves

Another of my favorite … and often-repeated … concepts from my training and coaching engagements:

‘My short and simple definition of success – Do what you love,                love what you do and be good enough at it to support the life you’ve chosen.’

Use with my compliments and stay tuned for more ‘Phil’s Faves’ next month.

A Phil’s Fave on Time

If you were in one of my Time Management workshops, you’d probably hear me say several times –

Another of my favorite … and often-repeated … concepts from my training and coaching engagements:

Perception is Reality’ with audiences. All they know is what they see and hear. If you look and sound like you’re comfortable, credible and competent, you are!’

Phil’s Faves – the Power of the ‘Three Es’

If you’ve read my articles on presentation skills or attended a workshop, you probably heard me refer to the ‘Power of the Three Es’. Your audiences expect and deserve workplace presentations that are ‘Effective, Efficient and Engaging’, so don’t let them down. And remember the ‘fourth E’ so necessary to achieve those results – Effort.

Phil’s Faves – Success

 I often share my definition of success in workshops or presentations. So, you might hear me say –

  Do what you love … love what you do … and be good enough at it to support the life you’ve chosen.’
