Cultural Intelligence: Develop Yours...
I just returned from San Francisco giving a presentation at The Wharton West Business School. My audience was 65 Latin American Exeuctives. My subject: Cultural Intelligence. Do you know what it means? CI for short, it raises the question, “Why do some leaders, executives, managers,easily and effectively adapt their views and behaviors cross-culturally and others don’t?” A big part of the answer is cultural intelligence—the capability to effectively understand and adapt to a myriad of cultural contexts. Considering that more and more people have to travel to another culture... 
The Art of Losing…lessons from a Wolverine...
It’s hard to win, but for most people, it’s harder to lose. I realized this truth applied to me as I settled into my seat flying from New York to Detroit. I had just lost out on an upgrade to first class and despite the fact that it was a short flight, I was still feeling sorry for myself — a typical reaction when we lose, be it in work, love, sports, or our cellphone. As I made peace with my uncomfortable seat, I noted that the young guy next to me was wearing a University of Michigan sweatshirt, so naturally our inevitable conversation turned to football — and losing. I’ll... 
Obama, Arod, Criticism & Unrealistic Expectations...
I just finished eating in a Vietnamese restaurant and paid the check quickly. I wanted to get back to my hotel room in a New Brunswick New Jersey to watch the third game of the ALCS and second debate game. Since I’m an expert in television watching, I knew it would be a breeze to switch back between the games and not miss one significant detail. If you follow baseball, you know Arod has been striking out frequently, and in his other at bats, has performed miserably, perhaps a bit worse than Obama who might not have struck out in the first debate, but certainly did no more than scrape out... 
Peyton Manning, Difficult Conversations and Dr. Hank...
Thirty seconds isn’t a lot of time for Peyton Manning to quarterback his team for a winning touchdown, but 60 minutes was plenty of time for me to give a game plan to the 400 executives who wanted to know how to handle difficult conversations. In fact, it is one of the most frequents topics that I am asked to speak on by Corporate America. Looking over the crowd, I called out: “Whether it’s in the boardroom or bedroom, we all face difficult conversations.” Nobody could deny that point, but I continued to run with, “Whether it’s with your boss, colleague, assistant,... 
Personal Intelligence…You Better Develop Yours!...
If you are open to new ways to improve your success, you might want to try increasing your “PI” — that’s “personal intelligence,” a cousin of emotional intelligence. Personal intelligence is new kid on the block for achieving success and it’s gaining a great deal of attention because it is important in helping you shape your career, relationships, and your life. Basically, PI is the ability of knowing oneself. Its importance lies in the fact that only when you recognize your true capabilities and intelligences can you truly live your life to the optimum.... 
Charlie Sheen, Anger Management & Dr. Hank...
If you take the two books I’ve written on anger management, the three books I’ve written on giving criticism, and mix them with more than a thousand presentations that I’ve done on anger and criticism, and the fact that I was one of the first practitioners of anger management (1976), and I think it’s fair to say that I qualify as an “anger management critic.” So here’s my critique of Charlie Sheen’s new show, Anger Management. Story line: Charlie is a former baseball player whose anger beat him into a self-inflicted career-ending injury, prompting...
