Unsolicited advice

Editorial by Matt Bud from the June 17, 2018 Newsletter

It is a sad fact that most men don’t appreciate getting unsolicited advice. That said, there are even those among us who reject advice they have asked for out of hand and in a dismissive way. The giving and receiving of advice is always a delicate balance. Even though probably 75% of my mail comes in without an outgoing signature and I could pull my hair out over it at times, I still write “May I suggest….”, when I should say “Haven’t you heard me mention this before?” (I try to keep my suggestion about providing a FULL outgoing signature from being mentioned in my editorials to only once or twice a WEEK. Perhaps I need to pick up the [ Read more… ]

Agenda

This month we feature Chip Hartman who will be making his FENG debut and speaking on 'The Value Proposition'.

Topic: The Value Proposition

A value proposition is the answer to one key question: "If I am your ideal hiring manager (or decision-maker), why should I hire you rather than someone else?" The answer is a finely-tuned statement about the value you bring to the table - from the decision maker's perspective. Think of it as your core marketing message.

This presentation includes the basic principles and hands-on aspects of the value proposition including its 4-part structure, methods for intensifying the impact of each part, and techniques for getting this core message readily accepted by the right people. Attendees will view case studies, see A/B tests, and discover the invisible science that drives all successful marketing.

Attendees will be provided with an electronic copy of the slide deck as well as a list of valuable online resources.


Speaker bio:

Chip Hartman is a MECLABS-certified Value Proposition Development Specialist. His professional background is in chemistry, microelectronics, writing, branding, marketing and web development. He has been employed by several high-profile companies including Digital Equipment Corporation, AT&T, British Telecom and Scholastic, Inc. and now owns his own marketing communications business in Parsippany, NJ. He is a published author and a classically trained concert pianist.



Please RSVP via the FENG website if you plan to attend.



Meeting Notes:

Come prepared to present your 30-second introduction/elevator speech.

Bring a list of target companies, and then ask who knows people in these firms. The meeting will end early enough to allow for networking afterwards.

Please be sure to:

- Bring a name badge and tent
- Bring business cards to exchange with other members
- Bring resumes for distribution with other members
- List of target companies

Business Meeting

Topic: Change Management

Speaker: Cam Bishop, CEO of SkillPath

Presentation:
Change management and business restructuring are not one and the same. Change management is far more involved, emotional, disruptive, risky and complex. Often, change management is called for but executives initiate a restructuring process instead. When a restructuring process is implemented, it is most often a near desperation move driven by steep declines in financial performance. Or, it’s dictated by financial creditors. The resulting actions in a restructuring are almost exclusively focused on cost reduction, often draconian, at every level. While this is an extraordinarily stressful and risky process, especially when it involves headcount reductions, it is nevertheless generally far less complex with more immediate results than executing change management.

Company Information:
Cam is the CEO of SkillPath, the premier company providing seminars, conferences and online training for business professionals. Over the years, SkillPath has grown to become the premier provider of business training in the United States, Canada and Australia. When they launched the company in 1989, they offered 82 seminars. Today they deliver more than 20,000 “how-to” sessions to over 500,000 people in 450 cities. Since joining forces in 1995 with Graceland University, their dedication to providing quality training has never been stronger.

How to Influence Colleagues, Customers, and Employees During High-Stakes Conversations
By Executive Influence & Branding Coach Andrea Dale

The most successful leaders influence others to embrace and implement their ideas—and yet it’s one of the most misunderstood skills.

To The Point Coaching specializes in helping leaders, managers, and up-and-coming talent be more influential. We bring you a six-part approach that helps you go from goal to result, and position yourself in the most powerful and effective way.

This talk will include:
1. The Eight Principles of Influence.
2. The biggest mistakes leaders make when trying to influence others, and how to avoid them.
3. A six-step planning process that gets the desired result in almost any influence conversation, in ways that actually strengthen relationship.
4. Seven different ways to influence somebody else.
5. How to handle conversations when the other person gets emotional and other challenges.

To The Point Founder Andrea Dale says of the presentation, “Influence is what sets top leaders apart from the rest. We have developed an approach that can help anyone be more influential, from C-level executives to up-and-coming managers. This presentation will make a difference to anyone who gets results by influencing others, including customers, investors, employees, or colleagues.”

Once you learn our process, you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it becomes to get things done, get everyone on the same page, set high expectations, and reduce the hassles that you face every day.

Agenda

NEW LOCATION

Agenda: Networking

Please join us and meet Michelle Vensel, the Pittsburgh Chapter new Co-Chair. Many thanks to Ariel Kuperminc for providing us with this new location.

The objective of the meeting is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads, ideas, and develop networking opportunities.

Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Dress: Business Casual 

Please bring:
- Name Badge
- Personal Contact cards
- 90-second announcement, and
- A friend or two.

Your chapter leadership will be delighted to see you there.

Agenda

June 20, 2018 – Eileen Sinett – “Creative Introductions for Networking and Beyond” - Robert Half Office, Saddle Brook, NJ
Do you cringe at the idea of introducing yourself at networking groups, or maybe “pull it off” but second-guess your effectiveness? Do you remember network introductions or do they often “go in one ear and out the other?” If any of these are true for you, believe me you’re not alone! Please join this interactive program, where you will learn and practice three creative ways to strengthen your networking game.

Our speaker for the evening will be Eileen N. Sinett. Eileen is, CEO, Speaking that Connects, began her career as a Speech Pathologist working with people with physical and emotional communication challenges. In 1980, she transformed her practice, and became a communication coaching and training business serving corporations and business professionals, providing individual and group speech, presentation and communication consultation services. Her mission is to raise the bar on presentation excellence and promote clarity, confidence and connection in speakers worldwide. Eileen has a Masters of Arts degree in Speech Correction from Kean University, NJ, and a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in the Communication Sciences from Emerson College, Boston.

Sinett was the 2014-2015 Chair of the Plainsboro Business Partnership and was recognized as Champion for Business by the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce in January, 2015, She has been a speaker for the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Princeton and Trenton Rotary Clubs, the Mercer Inn of the Court, The Institute of Management Consultants, New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners, Flemington Lions Club, Open Door Publications’ Winter’s Writer’s Weekend, and the NJ Lawyers Assistance Program (to name a few). Eileen is the author of Speaking that Connects, published in 2011, which simplifies the presentation process.
