When Failure Isn’t An Option

Have you noticed that the new in thing is ‘failures are not failures.’ Failures have now become the new learning, the new training for those who fail. When I was in school failing grades was a bad sign both for the teachers and the student’s parents. It didn’t bother me. There were some subjects that I was better in than others. But to the adults in my life, failure meant one thing. I wasn’t working hard enough. I didn’t understand the material. I wasn’t applying myself. etc, you get the message. Today, the message has changed. Failing isn’t an option anymore. Failing is now expected of you if you try hard enough. There’s always declaring bankruptcy and starting over. You can always remarry. You can always walk away and count what money you have left.

For future talk show hosts, failure can mean many things. Not taking decisive action when called upon.

Not making the right decision versus making a bad decision.

Making the wrong choice.

Being taken in by phonies.

The list goes on.

However, the future talk show host

should also realize that failure doesn’t lead down a dark and lonely road. There are plenty of failures out on the internet that tell you plainly that they have failed, but look out. Like the Phoenix, they have risen from the flames. Talk Show Host’s don’t wear failures well. It shows in their loss of revenue. It shows in audience decrease. It shows in less people following you. It hurts when you’re asked to leave because you’re not sharing in the universal approval rating of the station.

How do you as future talk show host avoid failure?

There’s no sure try and true method. Like most people you need to find the cracks and crevices as you march along. If you stumble and fall, make sure there’s someone who catches your back.
It’s called collaboration. It does make a difference. There’s another way, too. Have a contingency plan in place. You know, the plan that your parents, relatives, and boss remind you about every day of your life. Having a plan in place will take off some of the pressure. Why? Because you have a blueprint to follow when all else fails. There’s a small bit of insurance for you so when you’re axed, you don’t fall apart. Your emotions don’t kick in and scream, “You’re a Failure.”

Nope, in my world, it’s called “A Prepared Failure!”

Voice Personality

Voice personality is a first impression of who you are. To find your voice personality, one must listen to how one sounds. Speaking clearly, concisely, and concisely. What I term as my golden rule for women CEO’s and Empty Nesters to remember always.

“Mean what you say. Say what you Mean!”

How do you do that? By finding the right voice personality that fits who you are. Your personality. Other ways to express yourself and keep within the boundaries of your voice are tone, pitch, enunciation, vocabulary, psychology, and how you say what you mean.

When dealing with a peer, boss, higher management, or even your spouse, what you say and how you say is very important. Choosing the right words. Selecting the right tone. Keeping your voice even, not cracking, whispering, or ending your sentences in a question are all part of your voice personality.

Choose which type of voice best suits you when you’re in the business world might be entirely different than the one you use on your family, relatives, spouse, or friends.

Find your voice. Develop its personality. First impressions always count and sets the mood. Whatever mood the person is after, good, bad, or indifferent.

You need to practice your interpersonal skills and use them on a daily basis until these skills become a part of your career, business, and mind set.

Interviewing Techniques

There are all types of interviews. And no two interviews are alike. The interview for a job differs from an interview to get a loan which is different from an interview you give when fact finding for a research paper.

Listening, asking questions, speaking clearly, breathing, tone, pitch, these are all parts of how an interview is conducted.

By taking Ms. Cauldwell’s course, you learn how to use these techniques to get the desired results women CEO’s and Empty Nesters require to make a difference and enable their clients to get the best possible value for their interview value.
