The Business Builders Show with Marty Wolff


"Awesomely Simple" And Excellent Recommendations From John Spence

When I wanted to make some reading recommendations for 2015 I turned to John Spence. For many years now John has been reading about 125 business books every year! His suggestions are excellent for us entrepreneurs and small business owners. We also want to get you thinking about how to have more business wins in 2015. We review an article by Eric Schiffer in "5 Ways To Pound The Competition With Emotionally Charged Leadership". The key word in that article is EMOTIONALLY. Happy New Year!

"The Trouble with Incentive Plans and Other Bribes"

I have learned over the years that conventional thinking is often WRONG. We tend to fall into the groove that if other businesses are doing something and if there are hundreds of consultants and authors talking about it, the ideas that are being discussed must be effective. Contrary thinkers and writers are often a minority and therefore may not reach the audience that needs to hear their message.Gary Heil, a Washington Speakers Bureau exclusive speaker and co-author ofChoose Love Not Fear,joins me in this edition of the Business Builders Show to speak with Alfie Kohn.Kohn's criticisms of competition and rewards have been widely discussed and debated. His books includeNo Contest: The Case Against Competition, Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise, and Other Bribes, and School Beyond Measure & Other Unorthodox Essays About Education..I hope you will step away from conventional thinking for a few minutes and allow yourself to be a student.
