Tens of Millions of Americans Are Working Remotely, But Often Ineffectively

Teresa Douglas on the Secrets to Success When ‘Anywhere in the World’ Is Your Office

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Nearly two-thirds of all employers now offer a work-from-home option, at least for some of their employees.

But few employers provide their staff instructions on how to be most productive and satisfied working remotely, and most employers don’t know how best to manage their far-flung team members.

Teresa Douglas, who has worked from home since 2010, recently co-wrote a book, “Working Remotely,” to help employees and employers alike navigate the shoals of off-site workers. She shares her best insights this week with host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart.

Struggling with Intractable Business Problems? Blame it on Mom

Psychotherapist Dr. Patti Ashley on the Costly Vestiges of Our Upbringing

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Some of the most entrenched business problems that owners face have nothing to do with sales, marketing, employees, venders, or regulations. They have to do with “Mom.”

Unresolved childhood issues often creep, surreptitiously, into adult decision-making and can be a huge hindrance to successful goal-setting.

Dr. Patti Ashley, a psychotherapist, international speaker, and author calls her approach to resolving lingering childhood and adolescent problems, Authenticity Architecture. Only by casting off the misguided vestiges of our upbringing, Dr. Ashley tells host and award-winning reporter Dean Rotbart, can entrepreneurs realize their most heartfelt business goals.

Discover Her 7 Secrets for Driving Change, Managing Transitions, and Rescuing Failing Organizations

[Listen and Profit Now™]

When Jackie Jenkins-Scott was appointed president of the historic Dimock Community Health Center, whose roots in Boston date to 1857, the bankrupt institution was shopping its architecturally magnificent campus to real estate investors for redevelopment.

Instead, Jackie revived Dimock, as she did 21 years later when she stepped in as president of failing Wheelock College.

Jackie believes that many dying businesses and nonprofits can turn their fortunes around if their leaders will embrace the approach she dubs, “Responsive Leadership.”

Jackie boils down her method of turning around troubled organizations to seven secrets. She shares them with host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart on this week’s edition of Monday Morning Radio.

New Year’s Resolution #1: “I Will Make Better Decisions”

PR Strategist Robert L. Dilenschneider Looks to History for Decision-Maker Role Models

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Some of the most important decisions in history, from President Abraham Lincoln’s bold move to publish the Emancipation Proclamation to Harry Truman’s order to drop the atomic bomb, offer all of us lessons about how to make the tough choices that inevitably face us.

In his new book, Decisions, historian, author, and strategic public relations counselor Robert L. Dilenschneider gleans practical advice on how to make the best decisions from 23 men and women who shaped the world, including Henry Ford, Howard Johnson, and A.P. Giannini.

When life demanded it, each of the 23 individuals profiled in Decisions followed a path that Dilenschneider admires in order to reach their conclusions and subsequently act upon them.

What all of his profile subjects have in common, Dilenschneider tells host Dean Rotbart, is a sense of purpose. “They all knew who they were, and they constantly moved toward who they were.”

Each of us eventually has a Rubicon to cross. Knowing how others have faced their biggest challenges can help us make the best choices in our own lives, Rotbart says.

Dilenschneider is the founder of The Dilenschneider Group, a corporate strategic counseling and public relations firm based in Manhattan. In that capacity, he has advised numerous Global 500 corporations and CEOs.

In addition to Decisions, he is the author of several other popular books, including Power and Influence, and 50 Plus! Decisions will be turned into a PBS television series later this year.
