Impulse Training - It's Never Too Late

It’s Never Too Late

It’s not too late, and it never will be. One of the coolest traditions that my dad and I shared when I was a kid was attending the Ohio State Football home opener every year. We always arrived at the stadium a few hours before kickoff, talked about the expectations for the season, and parked …

How many times have you heard the phrase “thinking outside the box”?  I’m sure you’ve heard it every other day, week, etc. So, what does that phrase mean really?  When you think outside the box, you’re coming up with ideas or solutions people don’t normally think of, or trying to find a way through a challenge …

What’s Your Story?

Raise your hand if you think small talk can sometimes be painfully awkward…go ahead and raise it. Let me preface this by saying I do pretty well with generating a conversation with someone I don’t know or just met.  I mean, what is small talk really?  You introduce yourself by name, ask where do you …
