Leadership Development Series for Lancome – Third workshop

We just completed 3rd workshop for Lancome’s leadership team. I’m very happy to see progress of this team and we’ve made lots of adjustments since 2018 to ensure absolute applications and highly customized for their environment.

The luxury brands are performing and Lancome is the market leader in the global scene. Which mean they would attract more competitors to study their success stories. So leaders must be very flexible and constantly smell the change around them.

A couple of thoughts for leaders to stay ahead… 1. Smell the CHANGE, jump for next OPPORTUNITY. 2. Be COMPASSIONATE because PEOPLE is the key. 3. Choose to be POSITIVE always despite CHALLENGES. 4. Stay HAPPY because that’s the best DIRECTION. 5. EXPLORE what’s new because what you know is OBSOLETE.

And also, Lancome’s perfume is pretty good! Try it :-)!

HEARTBEAT – An Emotional Intelligence Card Game Almost there…

it has been a year since I decided to produce my fourth deck of card game. 90 cards, 90 uniquely sketched cartoons with more than 10 ways to play.

This will be my largest deck of card game since the PLAYER. Now printing in progress, I’m excited because your life will never be the same by just flipping over a card.

Almost endless possibilities of the way you can THINK, FEEL and ACT. Your HEARTBEAT, feel it and make your life WORTHWHILE. Stay tune…

How to Be a Better Communicator?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions when I meet up with HR personnel or bosses. There are many tools and ways to improve how you communicate with others.

During a recent workshop, I decided to sketch 10 drawings on flip chart papers to point out some key concepts and applications to better communicate with others.

That’s only the beginning… After more than 15 years in training and speaking industry, I would suggest you spend more time in the following areas:

1. Be REAL (just be yourself, stop trying to be someone else because others will figure out eventually)

2. LISTEN, listen really well (mute your internal dialogue and stop talking about you)

3. FOR YOU (think what you can do for others because you’re thinking about the same thing) Is not about communication but how you connect with others.

Not about the language but how comfortable are you with each other. Content is not the focus but building relationship is.

Trust is the ultimate goal. So, what would you do first when you meet someone?
