What Being A STRATEGIC Leader Means?

By Richard Brody  After, more than four decades, of involvement, in, nearly, all areas of leading, from identifying and qualifying, to training, developing, and consulting to, thousands of actual, and/ or, potential leaders, as well as creating, and presenting, leadership planning programs, etc, I have come to, strongly, believe, the best leaders, are, nearly, always, STRATEGIC ones. To be so, one must proceed, with a can - do, attitude, combined with a well - developed, skill - set, and aptitude, and being, ready, willing, and able, to proceed, forward, in the best, possible, way! With, that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and represents, and, why it matters. 1. Strengths/ stronger; serve/ service; solutions; system; sustainable: Effective leaders identify their personal strengths, and weaknesses, as well as the group's, and focus on using every strength, while, addressing every a

The CLEAR Approach To Selling A House!

 By Richard Brody  Since, for most people, the asset value, of their homes, represents, their single - biggest, financial asset, wouldn't it make sense, to use the best approach, when they, decide, it's time, to sell their house? Since, there is no such thing, as, one - size - fits - all, when it comes to real estate transactions, the smartest approach, usually, is, taking advantage of the combination of time - tested strategies, as well as customizing the specific approach, to the circumstances, and actual, property/ house! With, that, in mind, most would benefit, when/ if, they took advantage of, using a CLEAR approach, strategy, and action plan! Therefore, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why, it matters. 1. Competition; clarity; create/ creative; condition; communication: The best results occur, when agent, and client, proceed, on the same - page, and, this comes,

More Students Can Gain Access To College Education

 By Megan Wilson  The amount of time and effort students and parents put into planning, and how early they get started, are important factors in achieving access to postsecondary education. Schools play a key role in making planning resources, information and opportunities available and accessible. Educators believe that students should start post-high school planning in ninth grade or even earlier, but relatively few students report starting earlier than 10th grade. Young adults who did not continue their education after high school were more likely than others to say they wished they had started planning earlier, and were also more likely to report that they would do something different if they could start over again. Most reported that they would go to college. Among the most helpful approaches that schools take in preparing students for postsecondary education, educators list: - spending class time on college and career planning - consistent, ongoing individual attention or advisin

Relationships: Can Childhood Trauma Cause Someone To Keep People At A Distance?

 By Oliver JR Cooper  Although someone may want to form deeper connections with others and to even have an intimate relationship, this might not have been possible. When it comes to the former, they may have only been able to get so close to people, and, when it comes to the latter, it might not be any better. If they were to think about what is going on, they could end up feeling helpless and hopeless. What is taking place can then be seen as something that is totally out of their control, which can mean that they will end up feeling down and even depressed. The Right Things This is not to say that, up until this point, they will have simply sat around and hoped that their life would change, though. For a number of years, they may have put in a lot of effort to change this area of their life. However, while they will have done a lot, they won't have been able to get very far. In fact, what they may see is that all this effort has just caused them to feel even more frustrated and a

Do You Really Need New Years Resolutions?

 By Tawawn Lowe  The year has just begun and you may have a list of resolutions you've already set. The question is, do you really need them? For many people, setting resolutions for the new year is little more than a tradition they participate in. It might feel good at the moment - especially when you are caught up in the wave of "New Year, New Me" excitement. But the truth is, the new year rolls around and you remain the same old you, with the same quirks and beliefs. And you know what? That's okay. You have a uniqueness about you that you shouldn't try to force into a box with resolutions you don't actually believe in. Studies have shown that approximately 80% of new year's resolutions fail by the second week of February. So again, do you really need new year's resolutions? Short answer: no, you don't. Why, you may ask. Well, let's find out, shall we? Too Much Self-Criticism The first reason you don't need new year's resolutions is t
