Why You Need 5 Copies Of Performing Under Pressure...
Las Vegas would give great odds that you have a lot in common with at least one of these people who need a copy of the recent NY Times Bestseller, Performing Under Pressure (Crown, 2015) Jack and Jill Pressure: If its not you, they probably live next door. They rarely have time to chat, are always in a rush and describe their life as living in a “pressure cooker.” They are always on a deadline, have a project to deliver, a promotion to get, a mortgage to pay and a Mercedes to finance (AMG model.) Joe and Jill are frequently very successful (they are often the millionaire next door) so they... 
The Perfect Graduation Gift: A Coat For All Sesaons!...
If you are a parent and have a son or daughter graduating In the next few weeks from high school or college, you’re probably planning your graduation gift — giving it is pure parental enjoyment. You have many choices, all mitigated by financial realities. Some gift a new car, others present a trip. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches —inscribed— are popular. Pads, pods, phones and tablets are gift wrapped too. My friend got a dog for his graduation present with the parents paying Vet Bills for two years. Plenty give old reliable — a check, the zeros depending on family... 
Pressure: Meet The Villain!...
Demolishers of cities and civilizations, slaughterers of heroes’ fathers/mothers/lovers, terrorizer’s of little girls with fluffy kittens; villains are indisputably the axle upon which the wheel of fantasy turns. Without villains, you could not have the heroic battles between the Forces of Good and the Forces of Evil. Fantasy needs villains. Unless your life is a fantasy, you don’t need a villain in it but the reality is you have one—the pressure that permeates your life and more often than not murders your chances for success, and terrorizes you when you think about the challenges...

It’s a familiar film scene: a high stakes competition, millions on the line, winner -take all, and the whole world watching. On February 22nd, you won’t have to go to the movies to feel the drama these story elements create—just tune in to the Academy Awards. While we might multi task during the opening monologue or the performance of a nominated song, most of us are at attention as soon as we hear: The Nominations are. It’s analogous to the last play of the Super Bowl with the game on the line — we watch, usually on the edge of our seat. For us viewers and for all in attendance,... 
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...
