first_imgBroadway’s favorite dog lover Bernadette Peters stopped by the fourth hour of The Today Show on July 31. Of course, she didn’t go alone; joining her were three adorable pups—Palmer, Marty and Russell (all up for adoption!). The Tony winner shared her inspiration for her latest children’s book Stella and Charlie: Friend Forever, and admitted just how strong her love for dogs is: “I understand what a womanizer is because I’m a doganizer.” And for the record, Peters is #TeamPatti: “We’re on stage to make an experience for an audience…if you don’t come in with that expectation, you’re ruining it for everybody.” Turn your phone off and check out the interview below!

first_imgDisasters are more preventable when the right questions are asked by the right people at the right time. Most of us have heard stories about boards dismissed due to mismanagement and CEOs being asked to leave because of mistakes that were made that should have been better managed. Yet, overplayed diplomacy, social loafing, silent disagreement, and groupthink impedes curiosity, rigorous dialogue, and futuristic and strategic thinking in any room, including the boardroom and executive suite.CEOs might cringe when I suggest that board members ask more questions, articulate powerful statements, and be inquisitive. A high-performing board member knows when and how to ask the right questions at the right time. Most often, the right questions are strategic in nature, clarifying, or sense making. For example, “If we continue with double-digit loan growth year after year, what does this mean to our risk position in three years?” That question produces a different quality of conversation in the boardroom than this question: “Should we contribute $500 or $750 to the Urban League?” Or, “What services will our members need in the next three years that we currently do not offer, and how will we be positioned to make those offers?” versus “Why is this budget item over by $3,000?”Here are recommended questions to ask regularly in the boardroom and executive suite. The more frequently we ask these questions, rather than once a year for a one-day strategic planning session, the greater the success will be for the membership.How certain are we of our conviction about the organizational values and vision?What gives us resilience and courage in the face of uncertainty and adversity?What talent do we need to ensure our membership thrives in the future?What are we doing well that aligns with our competitive advantage?What do we need to improve our abilities to move the organization forward?How do we keep ourselves motivated and encouraged?What questions should we ask to uncover our blind spots?How prepared are we to handle unanticipated complex problems that confront our organization?What are our beliefs about how the board should govern?What are our beliefs about how the CEO should lead?Where do we think the organization should be headed over the next ten years?Mood MattersA great conversation happens with the right questions, exchange of ideas, and productive moods. Check your intention and mood before diving deep into a tough question. Moods that are expansive, vulnerable, and curious make it easier to ask the right questions at the right time and will produce rich conversations and outstanding results. 40SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Deedee Myers Deedee Myers is founder and CEO of DDJ Myers, Ltd. and co-founder of the Advancing Leadership Institute.

And it shows why many financial institutions apply to have their brand, website or branch network “made over.” Who wouldn’t want free advice from top experts in the field? But it does take some guts to put your institution under a spotlight, warts and all. And it also takes guts for the pros to present their recommendations to these institutions for the first time live on stage.Three makeovers took place live at The Forum this year, providing valuable take-aways for both the participants and the audience. All three are summarized here with additional commentary from interviews conducted by The Financial Brand.last_img read more

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he has some tough decisions to make ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup meeting with Everton after the injury toll mounted for the Premier League leaders. Midfielder Naby Keita became the latest player to be added to the injured list, having sustained a groin problem before Thursday’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United, which restored Liverpool’s 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool host Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton in the FA Cup third round With defenders Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne, midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho and forward Rhian Brewster all out, Klopp finds himself down to just 12 senior outfield players, plus new signing Takumi Minamino and a number of youth team members for the Merseyside derby. “I won’t tell Carlo Ancelotti my line-up, but I will do what I think is right to do,” said Klopp, who fielded a youth team in the League Cup quarter-final defeat at Aston Villa last month as his senior side were in Qatar winning the Club World Cup.Advertisement “Some things I can decide by myself, and some things the medical department will tell me. “I don’t know what the line-up will be at the moment, but it will be the best possible for us at the moment. Read Also: Ancelotti eager to reverse Everton’s derby-day fortunes “I’m pretty sure Carlo won’t make a lot of changes. He has started already really well and this is an opportunity for Everton to win at Anfield for the first time in a few years.” Everton, who suffered their first defeat under new manager Ancelotti at the hands of Manchester City on Wednesday, have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield since 1999.
