Welcome, Amazing You!

What if, while others…

… struggle to win customers or retain clients, YOU easily gain new business and referrals and grow rewarding connections.
… face dwindling productivity and staff turnover, your people, team and YOU consistently perform with confidence, creativity and commitment.
… hope for a raise, a promotion or more happiness, YOU soar your income, impact, day-to-day joy and well-being (even more romance).

The route to success has changed! Because we’ve changed. In what we value at work and in life. In business structures and buying behaviors. With competition and critics a click away. New pressures on relationships and families. And an increasing sense of discord and callousness around us.

Why is inner greatness key? Because when we’re feeling connected, valued, on purpose and happier, we’re virtually unstoppable. And the simplest way to ignite it, is with the powers of appreciation.

This isn’t some polite chore or feel-good exercise. We’re talking an upward-spiral accelerator!

The appreciation advantage is unleashing a unique combination of core human principles and simple, caring words and deeds, for those we lead, those we serve and ourselves, that:

  • forges greater connection, cooperation and trust
  • fuels resilience, initiative and drive for excellence
  • fosters confidence, creativity and charisma
  • grows a soaring sense of well-being and positive-spirited getting things done

It’s practical. Powerful. Proven. By yesterday’s business magnates to today’s superstars. By leading research on human performance and happiness to the latest from neuroscience. And by quietly and wildly thriving organizations and individuals alike.

Now more than ever, isn’t it time to ignite your success at work and life and make that bigger positive difference in the world?

700 Percent Pay Increase? Two Success Secrets from the Baseball Diamond

By on 03/15/2015

While baseball players, bats and stadiums have evolved – for better or worse — since the mid-1800’s, the game remains nearly as simple as it was when it started. Which is why so many fans love it!

And simple—as in easy to understand, easy to apply, accomplishes more without a huge learning curve or investment—is powerful. Of course, in our hurry-up world, we want results quickly. But we also want results that work over time—not a one-hit wonder.
