Prepare for bends in the road

Thanks! I agree that the action of preparing for possible change is important. Henry Mintzberg--strategy icon--calls it "prepared minds." Strategy often doesn't survive first contact with the enemy (Eisenhower) the the process of thinking it through is invaluable. By Todd Ordal on 2014 10 22

Prepare for bends in the road

Love this. I always say the only constant in business is change. The better equipped we are through anticipation and openness to change, directly correlates to our ability to successfully navigate the change internally and with our clients. What a valuable reminder! By CFO on 2014 10 22

Great article! I personally want to know more about the use of Cochlear implants to correct balance issues. By Lisa Lehndorff on 2014 10 20

Why the phone still matters

Woo hoo Sam. Another great article! I agree with this ...communication (and sales) only happen when people engage one-on-one. Pick up the damn phone and connect. I see so many companies investing in social media and not a penny on training people on how to engage and effectively communicate with today's new consumer...online AND offline. The companies that do invest in both, social media and sales training are the one reaping the rewards. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!!! Liz By Liz Wendling on 2014 10 20

Growing old isn't for sissies

There are more substantive questions to prompt: Why does your parent need to move? Is there a cognitive issue? Is there a physical safety issue? Are they in the same town or state? Has your parent developed a will, power of attorney documents and designated a family member to assist with these affairs? Are you aware of a KELS exam to assess cognition and personal safety? This validates too the ability to self-administer medications as well as the ability to prepare food, eat it on time, and store it safely. Does the elder care facility offer sliding services for someone who has a cognitive decline but is not yet ready for memory care? An assisted care facility is not a nursing home and does not provide that level of care. Who are the local physician care services and do they visit the facility; do they have a good reputation?
