Happy 2012! Our C-Level clients are busy building up their teams with strong employees and value-added skills. We have seen a big surge this year in hiring both in the South East and on the West Coast. To attract the best people we are negotiating better relocation packages and some sign-on bonuses as well as some telecommuting options.
Kudos and thank you to Peter Michael McGowan, who presented in Santa Monica this week an original piece entitled “An Actor’s Life for Me”. The audience roared with laughter and requested autographs; and they booked again for next Christmas! Peter presents a witty and lively repertoire about life as a British Actor, including many amusing encounters with famous people and trade blunders. Please get in touch with us at JDResources Media If you have any interest in an amusing presentation at your corporate function or entertainment event.

This week, I met and had a glass of champagne (or maybe two) with British Actor and Concert Director Charles Grant. Charles is a really talented singer, actor, television and radio producer. He is currently the Concert Director at the Actors’ Church in St. Paul’s Covent Garden, London England (my hometown).
Charles presented “Chopin in London” at Winston Wolfe’s home, Loxley Hall, in Memphis, with the lovely Rose Cholmondeley, a Steinway Artist and Chopin recital extraordinaire. Rose played music from Chopin’s last public concert at the Guildhall.
When I facilitate programs for leadership development, one of the topics we discuss in depth is trust. The reason we talk about trust is that it is almost impossible to have a discussion about what makes a good leader without using the word “trust.” To be a good leader you must be “trustworthy.” You must have credibility with your followers and be someone whose word is always good.
So what exactly is trust? Let’s start by thinking of 3 people whom you would trust with your life. In other words identify some person or entity (think organization, agency, company) that you would trust to make life-altering or even life-ending decisions for you. Have you thought of three?
