Real Estate agents are teams of independent contractors.  But that does not mean that the team leader should let go to the point of disconnecting.  Why do you have a team in the first place--more success for all while building your brand.  An effective leader does not simply say you know what to ...

Armonk NY is probably best known as the home of IBM World Headquarters.  To those of us who call Armonk home it is a beautiful community in which to live and raise a family.  Although Armonk has grown since I moved here in 1988, with only 4,500 people it is a small town within a metropolitan area...

The only thing constant is change.  If you stand still you are really going backwards.  Unfortunately, people spend most of their time reacting to change.  Figuratively, they are always driving the fire truck and putting out fires.  Don't wait until you see the train coming toward you to get off ...

Hooray, Monday I hit a long term goal, that of getting a free Active Rain account.  It is funny how goal setting and goal achievement work. When my friend Debbie Gartner introduced me to Active Rain in 2011, I thought why not.  Let's see how blogging works because I want to stay ahead of the curv...

Engaged teams produce successful business outcomes including a loyal customer base.  This is just as true for employees as it is for independent contractors or agents.  And this leads to increasing sales and profits. The reverse is also true. Team members who are disconnected and have no passion ...

You would not be driving your car if the wheels were coming off, would you?  You would call your local mechanic and ask for help.  Now suppose he tells you that your car is so badly misaligned that it should not be driven until it is realigned.  Wouldn't you get it realigned immediately?  Now wha...

How do you really motivate others?  You lead others by making them do what you want done because they want to do it.  You know that it is said that you can bring a horse to water but can't make it drink.  Well, you can if you make the horse thirsty first. How do you get others to do what you want...

Real Estate Agents are not employees.  They are independent contractors or entrepreneurs.  This team arrangement is not unique to Real Estate.  Insurance, financial planners, and consulting, to name a few are teams of independent contractors. These teams of associates can be spread out over a lar...

Sometimes after a long day you just want to sit down and have some comfort food.  My wife and I had a long day in the city and drove back to Armonk in traffic.  We decided to stop at one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, Amore Pizzeria and Pasta.  Actually, I was in the mood for a burger ...

A team is only as good as its weakest link.  As leader of a team you need to make sure that there are no weak links.  The Westchester County Businesses that I coach do not work on strengthening those weak links.  No, they work on leveraging each individual's strengths.  They insist on having the ...

Most of the information  I read talks about how to deal with the Millennials as workers and as customers. That might work for your marketing if your target market is only Millennials but might not solve issues in your work team.  We have three generations and understanding all three generations i...

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert inspired me with her post Can You Handle the Truth. No one wants to intentionally tell a lie.  On the other hand everyone wants to be liked and this fact can prevent people from saying what needs to be said.  I am not saying that you should offer a truthfu...

If you have been having great business success you know that it is not by accident.  You created a business plan and stayed focused on the execution of that plan.  Show me an unfocused business and I will show you one that has no direction and is in a state of disarray.  Of course, you do need to...
