My experience with Netgear’s customer support

0

It all started with a burning smell coming from my basement… not fun! As I don’t like charred toes I quickly searched for the source which turned out to be my Ready NAS NV+ from Netgear.

Leadership: 5 Steps to Becoming a Great Leader

0

When I stumbled into my first leadership role, almost 20 years ago, I had absolutely no clue what to do and got paid for it! I admit, I was a classic case of fake it until you make it; interestingly today you can find a lot of self-help gurus advocating just that approach. Historically great leaders came from all walks of life. Other than physical characteristics (Vikings…), leadership in the past often depended on advantages in skills and knowledge combined with character. Fortunately, most leaders are made, not born making leadership a skill you can acquire.

The third characteristic mentioned above is character, a combination of multiple personality traits, and the only one not easily acquired.

The New Economy – Are you ready for it?

0

The old economy is dying, on life support, current power structures hanging on with dear life, but just like every dying patient the end result is always death, I am not an economist – I ‘m a physician, I know. Just like in nature, death gives birth to new life, the economy of the 21st century, the new economy.What won’t change is that we all need to eat safe and nutritious foods, drink clean water, have access to healthcare, depend on some form of government and public services, require energy to keep things running, need to manage the whole thing and lastly educate our children.Think outside the box! This isn’t easy, because our brains are wired to work best with familiar concepts and we all, to some degree, avoid change; basically you need to start thinking about tomorrow world using today’s terminology. To thrive in the new economy work on solving today’s problems today AND start building tomorrow.

Brainwash Yourself to Succeed – Control Your Negative Thoughts

0

Without your thoughts, your world doesn’t exist. Your thoughts are also what everyone desires to influence. World-wide industry and government spend billions each day to control what is going on in your mind, shaping every facet of your thinking, from your view of the world to what you are paying attention to (the red, blinking SALES sign) and minute aspects of how you see yourself (your face’s fine lines and wrinkles and supposed social impact). I will venture out to say: Without this constant manipulation our world would be very different.

While skills and qualifications are important, they are not sufficient, because they tell you little about a candidate’s psychology or behavior. Unfortunately many candidates won’t perform or may leave if their behavioral style is not matched with your organization’s culture and/or the requirements of their new position. Psychological employment testing is one of the most valid and cost-effective strategies for identifying the most suitable job candidates…

DISC Assessment 101- Things you need to know about DISC

4

In the past improving your communication skills meant reading tons of “How-To” literature, taking courses or classes or joining networking groups to help you overcome this hurdle and gain contacts and experience that way. However, reading without practical application is nice but won’’t help you improve your behavior. Courses, classes and networking events are cool, but unless you already feel comfortable practicing in public you will either not sign up in the first place or not get much benefit from attending. Fortunately there is an easier way
