Communication Is About Reception

by Mike Phillips

    The quality of communication is how it is received. Not on what you think you said or shared. When we communicate, everything is based on the perception of the receiver. You must be able to articulate your thoughts in a practical manner. When you do this, others can truly receive an understanding of what the content of […]

    Sideline Leadership (The FRONT#24)

    by Mike Phillips

      Leaders are always watched. Even when they are not on the field! I love football as an analogy for business. ANy sports really share so many similarities in leadership and the business world. Leadership is an all the time thing. Many newer managers want to grandstand and show what they can accomplish while they are […]

      Tell And Show! (The FRONT #23)

      by Mike Phillips

        In training, you should TELL  and SHOW your staff to get the best out of them! Training and teaching are all about being in the front! We likely all remember the weekly “show and tell” when we were in school. Well, in leadership and management it’s the inverse. You must TELL and SHOW your people […]

          Mediocrity vs Excellence (The FRONT #21)

          by Mike Phillips

            Mediocrity is Garbage. If your life is important then you will stop making excuses and take action! Mediocrity is boring and uninspiring. Excellence and chasing your dream is hard! Everyone has a dream, what is yours? What did you want to do before “real life” set in? I challenge you to look at yourself as […]

              IT’S BIG! Mayweather vs McGregor

              by Mike Phillips

                It started out as some open media trash-talk. I like stories like this because I dissect them for what the mind of a champion looks like. How do champions qualities carry over to the leadership arena? Then that trash talk between two fighters, early in 2015, turned into a real challenge. Now here we are […]

                  Follow Up And Follow Through In Sales (The FRONT #19)

                  by Mike Phillips

                    Follow through and follow up (with customers) seems to be, to many people, a lost art. I used to think that lack of follow up, or a follow up “problem” was exclusive to salespeople, in the traditional sense. I have had several experiences with many businesses lately where there is no follow through. Meaning someone at the business tells […]
