Editor's Note

For many of us, September is a month of new beginnings. It’s also a time to take stock of where we are and what we plan for the fourth quarter. But how will we fill that most critical “in between” time? Reading the game changing articles in this newsletter will be a most valuable investment of your time, energy and focus toward success in all aspects of your personal and professional lives.

• Read people’s “Best Excuses” for not delivering acknowledgments and appreciation in“My Best Excuse for NOT Acknowledging Someone who Truly Deserves it!” by Grateful Leadership Guru Judith W. Umlas.

• Must negotiation skills “come naturally” or can they be learned and then successfully employed? Read Susan Croft’s excellent article on4 Tips for an Effective Negotiation and the “5-Step Negotiating Approach” that will get you what you want and need.

• And must all meetings be like those portrayed by John Cleese in “Meetings, Bloody Meetings”?* (see highlighted note below) Or is there hope for meetings after all, as described so effectively by Natalie Berkiw-Scenna, PMP in7 Key Behaviors for Facilitating Productive Project Meetings.

So it's a time when we take stock of what we’ve done, focus on the in-between time, and prepare for what’s to come. Let’s get started!
