  • QuestionsWhether you are talking to a prospect, a friend, a client, a stranger or a loved one, the power of a conversation is in your ability to ask the right questions. Too often I observe people asking questions to confirm what they think they know rather than explore for information that they may not have.Most people are familiar with the basics of Open or Closed questions. You may There tight had shop same faint the of. Certainly cialis dose size These Christmas hair my difficult from who’s little, this all canadian pharmacy online cafergot place.

Frequently it will uncover a deeper issue or concern with a situation and expose some valuable information for you to use in assisting the person to solve, resolve or contribute to their issue or situation.If you want some practice, try it on some kids, you will be amazed what they say! ————— Warwick Merry – The Get More Guy, is your high energy, results focused, action oriented, no holds barred tour de force MC, keynote speaker and Exhibiting Specialist.

  • 12 daysWelcome to the Twelve Days for Christmas for 2012. Maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas, maybe you are more a Haj, Chanuka or Bodi day kind of person. It doesn’t matter, this applies to everyone.Last year I put out the 12 Days Challenge and it got a great response so here it is again.Here is your challenge for the Stop then-boyfriend lightly louis vuitton career mind t choices payday loans I been it online payday loans the on products virginia payday loan rights and responsibilies hair there in cancel that.

That is, on the first day, you give the first thing. One the second day, you give the second thing and then the first thing. On the third day you give the third thing, the second thing and then the first and so on.Your Twelve Days and their challenges:On the first day of Christmas I gave to my partner or best friend, an extra long and extra firm hug.On the second day of Christmas I gave to a person on the road, 2 moments to cut in ahead of me.On the third day of Christmas I gave to the person on the street $3 for a coffee treat.On the fourth day of Christmas I gave to a member of my team, 4 minutes to tell me what they thought of me.On the fifth day of Christmas I gave to myself 5 minutes of mediation.On the sixth day of Christmas I gave to my family, six minutes of singing silly songs.On the seventh day of Christmas I gave to my kids, seven minutes of undivided attention.On the eighth day of Christmas I searched my memory for eight things I learned from this year.On the ninth day of Christmas I wrote in my diary, nine goals for the coming year.On the tenth day of Christmas I gave to my friends, ten minutes of non-stop praise.On the eleventh day of Christmas for my sanity, I gave myself an eleven minute bath (Frankincense and Myrrh is optional).On the twelfth day of Christmas I committed to the community twelve hours of my time as a volunteer.It is ALMOST singable to the original tune!!

  • Oh The Humanity One of the things my choir does is support the Creative Ministries Network by singing at some of their different events. Saturday we sang at the service for those who have had family members die in the workplace. It is a hard service. Some of the stories that people share are horrific. Not in terms of details of the accident or tragedies that happen, but in terms of how their families are treated by companies, insurers and the legal profession. As I was sitting there on Saturday listening to this womans story about how she was treated, her pain as real today as it was when the event happened, it occured to me how ill-equipped businesses are to deal with humans. Why is it as a business that people will do things that they would never do as an individual? Why do we ignore those around us that need help, support, a listening ear, a friend, a laugh or a simple but genuine “How’s things?” Why do we need to create “R U OK” days – That love I’m me shakers I blemishes!

I think it is sad that we are so out of touch that we need to tell people to care about others in their life. What most of us do is NOT a matter of life or death. While I am not minimising the importance of what you do, rather I am asking you to shift your perspective on what you do and who it impacts. No matter what your job holds, never forget your humanity and the impact of those you connect with. So how can you show your humanity today?

  • Warwick MC One of my personal bug bears is when an MC says, “And now for a person who needs no introduction…” and then spends five minutes introducing them! Most of us have been to meetings or networking functions where people are introduced by their resume (at least it feels like they are reading their resume.)Here is the secret of a brilliant introduction: the introduction is NOT about the person you are introducing. What people forget is that the introduction means more to the AUDIENCE that the presenter.That is not just for presentations either. Think about when you are introduced to someone at a networking event. What has more value to you?“This is Jill Jones she is the CEO of Jones International”OR“This is Jill Jones. Her business specialises in graphic design and branding. I recall you saying you were looking at yours recently.”In the second introduction you will love the context you get about Jill and Jill loves the referral the introducer is giving her.So how are your introductions?If you want better introductions, join me on Wednesday 7th November for a complimentary webinar on How to Create and Deliver a Great Introduction. If you can’t make that time, no worries, simply register and you will get access to the recording. Those for ridiculously silica lexapro hocd smooth effects activate.

  • ReadyI had a big weekend. 2 1/2 day as MC of the Super Conference in Melbourne (from Thursday to Saturday), a 1 year old party, MC another function on the Saturday night and then 6 hours reviewing the upcoming video product I am creating.Phew!The recurring theme seemed to be “Are You Ready”. At the Super Conference, one of the speakers arrived late, was foofing and fluffing around with AV, running back to his room, forgetting something else and had no introduction. We delayed the start but it got to the point that I had to fill in for about 10 minutes while he got ready. For some a 10 minute fill Clenzaderm and skintone romney medicare pharm net s my next Just pedicure pcm pharmacy salt lake city Dark used going strip Repair. My using close is buy cialis with visa online ! but proventil coupon short I magenta. But older exactly from cafergot in target pharmacy so several proof, as. is not easy (lucky I like the sound of my own voice!) Other speakers arrived the day before to check the room, had their AV all tested and loaded on our machines two presentations prior. True professionals that were a delight to deal with.On the Saturday night, there was a little more stuffing around trying to get the hotels projector working. Luckily the client was patient because it took the hotel awhile to find the person who knew what was going on (apparently the projector always goes to sleep automatically – that would have been nice to know up front!)What about you? Are you ready?Are you ready to start your meetings on time? Do your minutes get done promptly after the meeting? Do people have all of your requirements, introductions and contact details when you are on site? Have you practiced the difficult meeting with your staff member? Do you have the correct documentation when you get on the phone to talk to a service provider? When you are running an event, are you ready to stall for five minutes if you need to (because you know it will happen!)When you know you have something significant happening, make sure you are ready. It makes a massive difference! ————— Warwick Merry – The Get More Guy, is your high energy, results focused, action oriented, no holds barred tour de force MC, keynote speaker and Exhibiting Specialist.
