The quest for personal relationships

Editorial by Matt Bud from the April 28, 2016 Newsletter

Over the many years that folks moved off the farm and the security of their local communities to the “big city,” a rather significant shift took place in American society. Please understand that I am an accountant by trade and not an historian, but I believe that 90% of all Americans lived on farms at the beginning of the last century and now only about 5% do. As the automobile put Americans on the road and many of us moved to new places (I’m originally from Chicago, but lived in Indiana for many years before moving to Connecticut), the powerful sense of community that is so important to us as human beings was severely impacted. I suppose it didn’t disappear [ Read more… ]

Topic: Creating a Fulfilled Life

Speaker: Leigh Kole Johnson, coach, mentor and facilitator for maximizing career, corporate and personal performance.

Presentation:
What would you give to have more success and more purpose both at work and in your personal life, and more serenity in both?

As members of the FENG, we have achieved significant career success in our lives. We may have done the same in areas outside of our careers. And yet we most likely also have areas where we still feel challenged, or recognize that we have habits that work against us.

As a CFO, Controller or other senior finance exec, you play a critical role in the success of your company. You are typically responsible not just for getting the books closed, but for financing strategies, budgeting, financial and regulatory compliance, possibly corporate strategic planning, and maybe even HR, IR, IT and other areas. You provide not only numbers; you also provide analysis and insight. You challenge ideas and deliver creative solutions. You make sure the right questions are getting asked, and you often make sure the answers are being found. And you do this every day.

But in doing all this, are you as efficient as you could or should be? Are you and your team accomplishing what matters most, and are you doing it in the most efficient way?

And beyond just your time at work, do you have the great life you want to have and know that you could have?

What would it take for you to have the most fulfilling life and career possible for yourself? Where are you meeting your goals?

What areas are holding you back?

In this session, you will gain energy about pursuing your goals, and leave with enhanced knowledge of how to harness your mind, your attitudes and your behavior to support even more progress.

Specifically, you will walk away with:
- Clarity on what you most value
- An assessment of how well you are doing in the areas you care about most
- Insight on why we behave the way we do, including the latest findings from the worlds of behavioral economics and neuroscience
- A simple tool you can apply to any goal or domain to improve focus and enhance effectiveness.
- Practical tips for strengthening discipline and enhancing progress even in areas where you have felt “stuck”
- A new sense of how you can draw on your strengths and what you most value in yourself, to power up any aspect of your life

Sounds simple. It is...and very powerful.

Topic: The Good, Bad and the Ugly of Telecom

Speaker:Jim Good, owner of the Schooley Mitchell Telecom Consultant

Presentation:
1. Who is Schooley Mitchell and how do we help business owners
2. This business is designed to find ways of getting money away from the phone company.
3. From land lines to cell phones, when you get a bill over 100 pages long, who wants to mess with it? I had a client FedEx me 600 pages of a phone bill and when they made the copy, the secretary copied only one side of each page by mistake so it is really 1200 pages long.

Speaker's bio:
Jim Good is the owner of the Schooley Mitchell Telecom Consultant practice in Phoenix. Over the past 4 years of operation he has saved 100's of thousands of dollars for our clients. We are best compared to a tax consultant. The tax codes have gotten so convoluted that we all hire someone to do it for us. The phone companies have done the same. We can generally find 25-35% savings on your telecom spend. We are completely independent and work on a contingency bases...there is no risk or obligation. Our fees are self generated by the savings we find for our clients through finding mistakes, correcting overages, analyzing services for optimization, and researching the market place for competitive pricing. If you have a tax consultant to lead you through the maze of the IRS...you should have a professional doing the same with your telecom.

Agenda

TOPIC / GUEST SPEAKER: Informal meeting

• Until our attendance increases a bit, our evening meetings will follow our popular breakfast meeting format. Everyone will have a chance to talk about his / her issues and how the group can help; job search problems / opportunities; etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance. In order to facilitate the conversation, I often ask people:

* What is your competitive advantage?
* What do you do differently that marks you out from others?
* How do you provide value?
* What are you known for? What do you want to be known for in a couple of years’ time?

These are a bit like interview questions, but often I am trying to find the gold in your value proposition that might not be as clear to others as it is to you. (Questions taken from a newsletter article – Jan 21, 2014 – provided by Ken Witt, Raleigh FENG Chapter).

MEETING TOPICS / AGENDA:

Part 1: 5 - 10 minutes: Informal networking / Announcements. I will dedicate the first few minutes of the meeting to informal networking. I would like to take this time to get your thoughts concerning attendance and the speaker format.

Part 2: “Present your “30 Second” Commercial (15 minutes). Please get to the point. It’s NOT about you. This is a marketing presentation. Be specific – what makes you special? What are you offering? How do you add value? No one wants to know why you left your previous job or how many years you have been working. Please note that because of time, I will ask everyone to keep his / her commercial to 30 seconds. I will cut people off after 40 seconds.

Part 3: Informal “breakfast format” session. Bring your questions and problems. Everyone will get a chance to address his issues.

Part 4: Informal Networking, Part 2 (if time allows)

Agenda

Advanced Networking – So you think that you know how to Network?......you don’t know Jack until you have met Terri.

In this talk we will cover many Relationship Building obstacles and help you to better understand your role in making better use of your time and efforts during events and more important, after…

• What are my personal goals and objectives specific to networking?
• What are some of the barriers that I need to break through?
• How could I be more effective networking with my existing clients, and how will I do this?
• How do I effectively "work the room" at an event, whether I am introverted or extroverted?
• How do I make a memorable impact when meeting someone?
• How do I strengthen my 30-second "My Story"?
• How do I effectively follow up?
While it will be an opportunity to only touch on these subjects due to time limitations, you will walk away with information you may begin to use immediately.
Relationship Building is fun and I can show you how it can be.
