The right mind to negotiate
By Michael J. Berens
Much of a business leader's time is spent in negotiation. Brokering a deal, cutting costs, expanding distribution channels, selling a proposal, hiring talent, managing staff — all require the skill to negotiate with others effectively. Negotiation can be exhilarating; it can also be stressful. For that reason, some leaders relish the opportunity to negotiate, while others dread it. As it turns out, how you feel about negotiating can have a significant impact on the outcome of your negotiations.

Never hire a people pleaser
Probably the most difficult to manage employee (or coworker) is the "people pleaser." If a job candidate uses the term "people pleaser" to describe himself or herself in a job interview, do not hire that person. When somebody says "I'm a people pleaser," it's always with an air of apology, as if they're embarrassed that they sacrifice so much to make others happy. The remark, however, is a self-compliment masked as self-deprecation.

5 things super successful people do before 8 a.m.
Rise and shine! Morning time just became your new best friend. Love it or hate it, utilizing the morning hours before work may be the key to a successful and healthy lifestyle. That's right, early rising is a common trait found in many CEOs, government officials and other influential people. Margaret Thatcher was up every day at 5 a.m., Frank Lloyd Wright at 4 a.m. and Robert Iger, the CEO of Disney, wakes at 4:30 a.m., just to name a few.
