Leading on the Edge Report - December 1, 2008

By Lonnie PacelliDec 1, 2008

For those of you in the United States I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday and that you had plenty of time to spend enjoying your loved ones.  We spent the week in Phoenix where we enjoyed time with terrific family and friends.  I planned on doing my newsletter over the holiday but had too much fun doing little things with my wife and kids. Precious times indeed.

Leading on the Edge Report - November 15, 2008

By Lonnie PacelliNov 10, 2008

The United States and the rest of the world has been watching the Presidential election with a wide range of emotions including fear, excitement, uncertainty, angst, and wonder.  History was made with the election of Barack Obama.  Many were elated, many were disappointed.  Regardless of political affiliation, my faith tells me to respect the authority of our leaders and to pray for them.  President-elect Obama has many challenges facing him and he deserves our respect as leader and commander in chief.

I hope that during these times you are keeping your head above water and keeping good balance in your work and personal life. It’s going to be a busy couple of months for me between writing, speaking engagements, and consulting aside from my important role as a husband, father and friend. I talk a lot about keeping work/life balance not only for you but also as a reminder for me. Heaven knows I need it!

Getting Invited Back for a Second Interview

By Lonnie PacelliOct 20, 2008

It's happened to many of us.  We go through a first interview thinking we've nailed it but the phone doesn't ring for a second interview.  Sometimes it's due to poor job fit, but at other times there's something we've done which leaves a bad taste in the prospective employer's mouth.  Watch for these problem areas and increase the likelihood of a call-back...

So like many of you, I’ve watched my portfolio get absolutely hammered over the past months.  Since my last report the Dow Jones Industrial Average has dropped over 2000 point despite the most significant financial bailout in history.  These are very sobering times and cause many to reflect on what is truly important; faith, family, and friends. My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you.

Consuming Passions: What is Reality - and Will We Pay For It?

By Michael R. SolomonOct 4, 2008

What is reality?  Marketers and consumers coexist in a complicated, two-way relationship. It’s often hard to tell where marketing efforts leave off and “the real world” begins. One result of these blurred boundaries is that we are no longer sure where the line that separates this fabricated world from reality begins and ends. Will consumers pay to live in a brand-free environment?

Wow, what times we live in now.  As I write this the United States Legislature is about to embark upon the most significant financial bailout of Wall Street in world history. Companies thought to be bullet-proof are now no longer in existence. FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) is prevalent amongst businesses large and small today.

The Magic of Motivation

By Edward G. MuzioMar 24, 2008

Have you ever tried to get someone to do something he or she didn’t want to do?  Did you try explaining all the mutual benefits, good reasons, rationale, win/win outcomes, and still get nowhere?  Did it leave you wondering what went wrong?

The answer might lie in motivation.
