Everything You Hear Isnt Likely To Help You One Bit
You have possibly heard tons of guidance on the way to save wedding from divorce. You know, the regular stuff -- communicate, have alone time, get support from family, look for an advisor. Well, everything you hear isnt likely to help you one bit. Wherever you look, it's sex, sex and more sex. Because if youre not kidding about desiring to save wedding from divorce, there's truly only 1 thing you have to have. Wedding Courses and Workshops As each conjugal problem is dissimilar, so are available courses.

There are courses for communication, the simplest way to handle cash issues or affairs, and courses for 2nd wedding issues. These are built to give the couple 'assignments ' to work on. Some assignments will be for the person to work on, and some will be for the couple to work on together. You can simply download any of the packages of your choosing in the comfortable surroundings of your home or office during any time of the day that you wish. The rationale is that most famous conjugal problem resolution advisors have packed all of the wedding conflict resolution secrets in an electronic format that will simply be accessed on the internet. You tin of course do this without the acceptance of your other half. If you access the right package, youll find assorted techniques you can effectively use to start to work on your wedding alone and when your partner realises what is occurring, you have to have amended plenty of problem issues ( most particularly the ones that were intentionally or unwittingly due to you ). You could need to tug in a Wedding Advisor if youre existing with someone that doesnt bring up any problems with your wedding or life. In a similar way, it is quite as vital to see a wedding advisor if you cant talk to each other about difficult subjects or feelings.

Frequently Ive been told a divorced mate exclaim, 'They just left. Solutions are more easy to work out if guilt and hurt have not been loaded into the conversation. A wedding advisor will help you show your feelings and raise issues in non threatening methods - avoiding blame games and guilt trips. If you are not doing things together on regularly or merely hanging out and speaking one to one, then somebody is going to feel neglected or unsatisfied. Solitude : Another major difficulty that comes between couples is 1 or both parties feeling ignored or forsaken in the relationship. Ensure you are taking time out of work and past-times to spend some time with and support your other half or loved one in their own life. It does not matter how many years youve been together, youll always need that bonding time together.

How Ive Learned To Develop Leaders

How Ive Learned To Develop Leaders
Every once in a while I'll get a question from a reader, co-worker, or student about how to break into the leadership development field. The reality is, it's not really an entry level profession, and there's no one right way to get there.

The leadership development profession includes trainers, coaches, HR generalists, managers, authors, speakers, preachers, and every combination of these. They have degrees in management, organizational development, human resource development, psychology, education, and engineering. Some have certification... some don't.

So while I don't have a good answer on how to break into the field, I can look back and share "how" I've learned (and continue to learn) about leadership development. I believe these could be repeatable learning experiences for someone just getting started.

In no particular order:

1. Study real leaders

From the day we play our first sport or join our first organized activity, we are surrounded by opportunities to study leadership and management. We learn from all of those good and bad examples. It's a numbers thing - the more of them we are exposed to, the more we learn. I started out training first level supervisors - blue collar foreman, nuclear engineers, and accountants - so in the course of just a few years, I was exposed to hundreds of new supervisors from all walks of life.

However, the "studying" needs to be intentional - it won't just happen by osmosis.

You have to be rampantly curious about what makes great leaders tick - their skills, values, experiences, career paths, styles, etc....

More importantly, you have to be an investigative reporter to find out how they got to where they are. You begin to see patterns on how the good ones develop, and the bad ones don't. Those patterns can then be replicated for others to follow or avoid.

2. Learn from the real "gurus"

Fortunately, there are already a lot of people out there that have already had all this experience and studying. When you can fit what you seeing and hearing into already discovered best practice frameworks, it all starts to come together and make sense. You develop a proven framework and toolkit.

For my money, the most credible source on leadership development is

The Center for Creative Leadership. They have the best research, models, theories, publications, and programs. No one else comes close, and those that do, tend to have roots that go back to CCL.

To be fair, there are others.... Dave Ulrich, Noel Tichy, Marshall Goldsmith, Morgan McCall, Warren Bennis, Peter Drucker, and way too many others to mention. I've accumulated over 200 books on leadership development, and am constantly looking things up and re-reading them. Good practice based on research is timeless, unlike some of the fads the charlatans peddle.

3. Learn from fellow practitioners

When you work for a big company, chances are, there will be others involved in leadership development that you can learn from. I've learned from my managers, peers, and employees. One of my favorite former managers now runs an executive development practice at Monitor. Another ran leadership development programs at GE, considered the best at leadership development.

There's also lot's of opportunities to learn from others outside of your organization. I've gone to a lot of great conferences and networking events, and am always looking for new opportunities to maintain an external perspective.

That's one of the reasons I blog... I learn as much as I share. It's a way to connect with others from around the world that are as passionate about this stuff as I am.


I lot of what I learned came from external suppliers, consultants, and coaches. I suppose this is a combination of learning from experts and other practitioners, but worth calling out separately. I'm thinking more of those that I have hired to do work or provide products for the various companies I've worked for. In my early days, I did this a lot, because quite frankly, I didn't know a whole lot about anything. Each time I did, I tried to soak up as much as I could during certifications and project work. Most were very generous about transferring their capabilities.

Some of the best I've learned from are DDI, PDI, Lominger, and a lot of small, niche consultants and coaches.

5. Stay in "school"

There are some good degree programs in this field (HRD, OD,), but that's not where I'd recommend starting. First get a few years of experience, then the degree.

In addition to at least a Masters, and perhaps a PhD, I'd recommend attending as many university-based executive development programs as possible. Michigan, USC, and Harvard all have deep expertise in leadership development, as well as CCL.

6. Trail and error.

I've been fortunate to have worked at companies that have given me a lot of freedom to innovate, take risks, and screw up now and then. I love to tinker with the system, test new ideas, and add to my toolbox. I've always considered a 1/3 adoption rate a pretty good batting average.

Earlier in my career I fell for my share of fads and wacky ideas. Now, while I still like to think I'm open to possibilities, I'll make sure anything new I try is based on research, tested, reference checked, and evaluated.

So while that's what's worked for me so far, I realize my experience is limited and there still is lot's more to learn.

For those of you in the field, what's worked from you? Where have you learned the most about leadership development, and what advice could you share for someone just getting started?

A Country Boy Takes His City Kid Out West

A Country Boy Takes His City Kid Out West
My daughter was three when it really hit me that I was raising a city kid. Two thousand miles from our Brooklyn apartment, driving through a dense cedar forest in Grand Tetons National Park on the way to a wedding in Montana, she stared out the car window, utterly baffled, and asked: "Dad where are all the buildings?"

She had no idea how to make sense of all that nature. Where were the skyscrapers hiding?

I grew up in rural North Carolina, with 12 miles of tobacco fields and peach orchards between our home and the nearest intersection busy enough for a stoplight. My memories of childhood with my father-good and bad-are all lit with Carolina twilight: After he'd get home from work, we would sneak onto the burnt grass of the local golf course and play till we couldn't see the ball; fish in a canoe on a nearby lake; fill five-gallon buckets with scupperdine grapes picked from wild vines in the woods. I couldn't say exactly how the outdoors made me. I just know it did.

Sixteen years ago, I moved to New York City and dove headfirst into the art-and-media scene in which I am still submerged. Eight years ago, I started raising a city kid. My daughter's crib faced a Caribbean jerk-chicken joint and a Chinese takeaway, right around the corner from the Brooklyn Museum and a busy fire department that spewed nightly sirens. Now she can sleep through anything, and a lot of her life is like any eight-year-old girl's anywhere: She loves Taylor Swift, hates Justin Bieber, knows "Let It Go" by heart, and gets lost in Hogwarts's halls. But she also rides a packed subway to public school in Greenwich Village, where she takes math classes with kids named Palladin, Ghomeshi and Thage. She's got more stamps on her passport than I had at 30. And when she's comfortable, she's got the unmistakable swagger of a cocky, hyperverbal city kid.

I've scrambled and commuted to the best the city has to offer, but I haven't been able to shake the guilty feeling that she's never really gone fishing.

She's also scared of flies. House flies, fruit flies, gnats, mosquitoes: They all freak her out. A fly on a bowl of pasta can mean two-hour dinnertime. Also: ants. As a city kid, she regards even the most domesticated animals-a cat, a chicken, a cow-as wild and mystical creatures: a unicorn, a centaur, a Pegasus. She clambers over big rocks in Central Park and calls them mountains. Raised under street lights, she can get scared by the true black of natural nighttime. Walking over a sidewalk grate the other morning, she told me she loved the smell of the warm, noxious subway exhaust billowing around us.

I've scrambled and commuted to the best the city has to offer-gigs, shows, museums, and after-school stop-motion animation classes-but I haven't been able to shake the guilty feeling that she's never really gone fishing. She has never really been let loose in the woods. Her idea of climbing a tree means mounting one limb and sitting there for a while-since most low limbs have been sawed off in Brooklyn's litigation-proofed parks. And, until this spring, she'd never been camping.

Hoping to counterprogram her urban childhood, my sister and I met up in Phoenix, then drove with my daughter north through the cactus-pocked desert to the red rocks of Sedona. She loved the hotel swimming pool. We jumped in a four-wheel-drive jeep and kicked up dust in the canyons, hiked through the slick slate of Slide Rock State Park, and marveled at some seriously scenic vistas. Her favorite was the one where Native American women sold bracelets.

My sister and I didn't have a specific plan. But if we did, it was probably based in a New Yorker's bigger-means-better delusion: My daughter hadn't experienced much nature. So we were going to show her the most nature we could find: The Grand Canyon.

How does an eight-year old-or anyone-make sense of that scale?

On the drive up to the Canyon, my daughter-exhausted by the mile-high altitude, jet lag and a head cold-slept from Flagstaff to the park entrance. When we arrived at the edge of the canyon, she didn't spend much time pondering the inconceivable scale of the canyon, as we adults attempted-or pretended-to do. She stared at her wobbling sneakers balanced on a little wooden boundary that marked he walking path, trying to balance. She was much more interested in scrambling in and around the cliffside scrub-brush, picking up pinecones and picking up leaves for her latest, fleeting miniature collection.

How does an eight-year old-or anyone-make sense of that scale? I tried to translate it into city-kid numbers: I told her it was 1.5 Empire State Buildings deep. So wide it you could fit the island of Manhattan Inwood-to-Wall Street, sideways, at the canyon's widest point. It didn't particularly matter. She collected pebbles-bits of dull quartz and chips of grey slate-in a beaded Native American purse we'd purchased at one of the scenic overlook gift shops. We adults oohed and ahhed, approximating awe as we adjusted camera viewfinders; my daughter focused on the natural world that could fit in her tiny hand.

A visit to another Native American gift shop thrilled her. So did an ice-cream cone. Then the three of us sat down on a wooden bench on the southern edge of the canyon for sandwiches. There, on the edge of this vast, unknowable canyon rippling with color, my daughter found her bliss.

Behind the bench, she found a bent-over, slightly defeated-looking tree, with one branch, and then another not too far above it: a real-life climbing-tree, with bark and everything. She scrambled with the steely focus of Stallone in "Cliffhanger". Falling, then trying again. Then climbing. She found initials carved into the tree high up above her head and as she climbed just a little too high for her comfort, she yelled, grinning, "Dad! I'm stuck!" It was the kind of cry for help that she utters when what she really wants is for me to see the amazing thing that's she's done.

Later in the trip, we would camp out, fish, hike, shoot rocks from slingshots, scramble up a steep mountainside, leap across a shallow riverbed, build a fire and roast hot dogs. She debated proper marshmallow-roasting technique with ash smeared across her face, as one should. And she complained about the boredom of fishing, also as one should. One afternoon, as she balanced on a fallen pine tree, I heard her tell herself, under her breath, "Okay, you can do this," as she pushed down her fear and walked all the way to the end, like a miniature Philippe Petit. She freaked out about the water bugs at the river, the flies at the campsite, and the ants crawling over the picnic table. And she almost got used to them.

Exhausted, she fell asleep each night before sunset. So, one evening, around ten, I woke her up, unzipped her sleeping bag, and carried her outside, pointing up at more stars than she'd ever seen. She gawked and stared quietly.

"It's so beautiful," she said, still groggy with sleep. "It looks just like Manhattan."Celebrate Father's Day with Made Man's "Thank Your Dad" stakes! in Made Man's Hangs on LockerDome//

10 Traits Of Continuously Successful People

10 Traits Of Continuously Successful People
We have all read about people who are successful briefly. They win a gold medal, make a fortune, or star in one great movie and then disappear....These examples do not inspire me!

My focus and fascination is with people who seem to do well in many areas of life, and do it over and over through a lifetime. In entertainment, I think of Paul Newman and Bill Cosby. In business, I think of Ben and Jerry (the ice cream moguls)...As a Naval Officer, husband, businessman, politician and now as a mediator and philanthropist on the world stage, Jimmy Carter has had a remarkable life. We all know examples of people who go from one success to another.

These are the people who inspire me! I've studied them, and I've noticed they have the following traits in common:

1 THEY WORK HARD! Yes, they play hard, too! They get up early, they rarely complain, they expect performance from others, but they expect extraordinary performance from themselves. Repeated, high-level success starts with a recognition that hard work pays off.

2 THEY ARE INCREDIBLY CURIOUS AND EAGER TO LEARN. They study, ask questions and read-constantly! An interesting point, however: While most of them did well in school, the difference is that they apply or take advantage of what they learn. Repeated success is not about memorizing facts, it's about being able to take information and create, build, or apply it in new and important ways. Successful people want to learn everything about everything!

3 THEY NETWORK. They know lots of people, and they know lots of different kinds of people. They listen to friends, neighbors, co- workers and bartenders. They don't have to be "the life of the party," in fact many are quiet, even shy, but they value people and they value relationships. Successful people have a Rolodex full of people who value their friendship and return their calls.

4 THEY WORK ON THEMSELVES AND NEVER QUIT! While the "over-night wonders" become arrogant and quickly disappear, really successful people work on their personality, their leadership skills, management skills, and every other detail of life. When a relationship or business deal goes sour, they assume they can learn from it and they expect to do better next time. Successful people don't tolerate flaws; they fix them!

5 THEY ARE EXTRAORDINARILY CREATIVE. They go around asking, "Why not?" They see new combinations, new possibilities, new opportunities and challenges where others see problems or limitations. They wake up in the middle of the night yelling, "I've got it!" They ask for advice, try things out, consult experts and amateurs, always looking for a better, faster, cheaper solution. Successful people create stuff!

6 THEY ARE SELF-RELIANT AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY. Incredibly successful people don't worry about blame, and they don't waste time complaining. They make decisions and move on....Extremely successful people take the initiative and accept the responsibilities of success.

7 THEY ARE USUALLY RELAXED AND KEEP THEIR PERSPECTIVE. Even in times of stress or turmoil, highly successful people keep their balance, they know the value of timing, humor, and patience. They rarely panic or make decisions on impulse. Unusually successful people breath easily, ask the right questions, and make sound decisions, even in a crisis.

8 EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT. They know that "Now" is the only time they can control. They have a "gift" for looking people in the eye, listening to what is being said, enjoying a meal or fine wine, music or playing with a child. They never seem rushed, and they get a lot done! They take full advantage of each day. Successful people don't waste time, they use it!

9 THEY "LOOK OVER THE HORIZON" TO SEE THE FUTURE. They observe trends, notice changes, see shifts, and hear the nuances that others miss. A basketball player wearing Nikes is trivial, the neighbor kid wearing them is interesting, your own teenager demanding them is an investment opportunity! Extremely successful people live in the present, with one eye on the future!

10 REPEATEDLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE RESPOND INSTANTLY! When an investment isn't working out, they sell. When they see an opportunity, they make the call. If an important relationship is cooling down, they take time to renew it. When technology or a new competitor or a change in the economic situation requires an adjustment, they are the first and quickest to respond.

These traits work together in combination, giving repeatedly successful people a huge advantage. Because they are insatiable learners, they can respond wisely to change. Because their personal relationships are strong, they have good advisors, and a reserve of goodwill when things go bad. And finally, none of these traits are genetic! They can be learned! They are free and they are skills you can use. Start now!
