Four qualities of an effective message

This evening after work I visited the the Cottonwood Leadership College (CLC) for their open house. I am so glad I did. I got to sit in to the Homiletics class taught by Pastor Kenneth Mulkey, Executive Director of CLC. I had no idea what homiletics was all about, but I went into the class because I knew it was Pastor Kenneth who was the teacher. He is one of the finest communicators I personally know, and I am blessed to have him as one of my mentors. If you have not googled it yet, homiletics is the art of Continue reading Four qualities of an effective message

Three Things That Will Make Anyone Very Unattractive

Not too long ago I got the chance to volunteer at a big event organized by one of biggest personal development seminars and resource company in America.

The easiest and fastest process to develop a more positive mental attitude

A few days ago I had a phone call from someone who has an extreme fear of public speaking. He revealed to me that he wanted to join a Toastmasters group to help him actively work on getting over his fear, and I congratulated him for making that decision. Then he went ahead and told me about a presentation that he had to give the following day and he was petrified and getting highly stressed just thinking about it. We spoke on the phone for about 20 to 30 minutes and I took him through a series of steps to help Continue reading The easiest and fastest process to develop a more positive mental attitude
