What is THE FRONT? (The FRONT #50)

by Mike Phillips

Welcome… to THE FRONT #50! It really is crazy to me how quickly time flies. I’ve been producing new episodes of “The FRONT” for over six months now! I get several questions that pop through my inbox with things like, “Wow! I loved the last show, but what exactly do you cover in other episodes?” […]

Sales Call Reminders (The FRONT #47)

by Mike Phillips

These are simple, not necessarily easy, sales call reminders and training. First, let me give a shout out to Leona Willener who is here in Colorado Springs and posted on LinkedIn this morning about Time Zones and B2B salespeople. (Leona’s post is right here)This was what got my creative juices flowing today and made me […]

You Need the Line in the Sand… Sometimes.

by Mike Phillips

The line in the sand? It’s true. There is still a time and place for authoritarian leadership. We are in an age of democratic and collaborative, feel-good leadership. During this time, right now, in history, many leaders, speakers, and trainers are instructing company management and executive leadership that everyone needs to feel included and that all […]

Feeding Your Mind Right! (The FRONT #46)

by Mike Phillips

I have heard it said, that you are what you feed your mind. One of my favorite quotes, in fact, is by Napoleon Hill, and it says, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” This is a repeated theory from the Bible – Matthew 7:7 (NLT) “Keep on asking, and you will receive what […]

Manager and Leader Are Not Synonymous.

by Mike Phillips

Managing versus Leading. Management and leadership are often spoken of hand-in-hand. These two words are often used interchangeably. They are not the same thing.

Passion, Persistence, Perseverance (The FRONT #42)

by Mike Phillips

I love fire, passion. I admire persistence. And I respect perseverance. There are so many amazing parallels in athletics, especially football, to business. For example, the work ethic involved. The overwhelming emotion and the continued pursuit of success and winning. You’ll have to tune into the video or podcast for the full narrative today! But, […]

Mediocrity Has No Place In Business

by Mike Phillips

There is not a spot for “average” in the current work climate. There just isn’t. In my opinion, in business, especially now, more than ever before in history. You should not be accepting of mediocre (average) performance. There is too much at stake. There is too much social connection and transparency for you to continue […]

There Is Power In Practice (The FRONT #39)

by Mike Phillips

When you decide that you want to improve. You MUST practice every… single… day. Consistent, everyday practice creates more stamina, a complete skill set and therefore confidence. Let me start this with a real-life event. My wife and I enjoy going to the gym together. Sometimes we work out on our own, sometimes we take […]
