Posted by:

What do you call a boomerang that doesn’t come back? A stick.  It is a toss up as to which is more foolish, telling this joke or expecting you to laugh at it.  The problem with being foolish is that it often stems from ignorance, insecurity and discomfort.  Effective foolishness uses jokes which connect, encourages laughter which leads to learning and leaves your audience wanting more.

Are You Quick to Confound?

Posted by:

Suddenly, you are aware that you are hurtling through the heavens at hundreds of miles per hour.  The sun’s rays duck behind the horizon and clouds immediately obscure your vision.  A smartly dressed owl, seated to your right,  begins pulling out reams of paper awash in meaningless squiggles and casually points a feather into the pages, hooting, “We are right on course.”  You are now more than a little confused.

Surely, you have awaken from confounding dreams and either pondered or ...

Is Your Madness Mild Mannered?

Is Your Romance Extraordinary?

Are You Potentially Connected?

Posted by:

Speaking in public displays your potential to exceed, meet, or recede from your capacity to connect.  Your potential may not be unlimited, but it is often inhibited by self-limiting beliefs.  When you open your heart as wide as your mouth, you tap your potential to connect, to grow, and to inspire others.

Every act of courage on your part encourages others.  Just standing up before your peers can help someone begin to transcend their fear of speaking. It is even better ...

Do You Manage What You Decide?

Posted by:

Whether you decide with speed or with deep deliberation, what you decide is less important than how you manage your decisions.   When you choose to speak, you must decide what to say as well as what not to say.  To deliver your message effectively you must manage your internal conversation, your public presentation and the consequences of your communication.
