While many have solely thought of Bitcoin when the term “cryptocurrency” is referenced, today it is the system they are built on that is disrupting many entities in the financial industry and beyond. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency are programmed on a system called blockchain. This system facilitates a peer-to-peer transaction network that operates directly between users without an intermediary. And even though Bitcoin and other types of cryptocurrency are a Soft Trend—one whose future is open to influence—the existence of the blockchain and the concept of cryptocurrency is definitely a Hard Trend. It is here to stay with abundant applications. The rapidly evolving technology of blockchain holds enormous promise for game-changing disruption across any number of industries and fields; it just takes some understanding to figure out how you and your organization can use my Anticipatory Organization Model to leverage this disruptive Hard Trend to your advantage. Blockchain Broken Down For those who may…

I spoke last week about important economic information that was coming out in the last six days. Jobs report last Friday, and the inflation data today for May. Neither report was very encouraging, but the markets are taking the information in stride and buying into the theory of “Don’t fight the FED!” The Federal Reserve has dismissed higher inflation as “transitory” and that prices will fall as the economy recovers and people go back to work. Their statements indicate that everything is related to the supply chain being restricted and that once all the workers go back to work, supply will return and that prices will fall. I’m not so sure everyone believes that, but we all know you can’t fight the FED! Today the key number was that year over year inflation was 5%. That is the highest year over year number since January 1992. Certainly, well over the…

In the movie “Finding Forester” William  Forester (played by the late Sean Connery) asks Jamal Wallace (played by actor Rob Brown) if, at the end of his high school championship game played in Madison Square Garden, when Wallace had two free throws, which he missed, but would have won the game, “Did you miss ‘em or did you miss ‘em?” as if on purpose. For Wallace, it was a matter of integrity. Let’s pose the same question for our professional athletes. Did the professional athletes miss not having fans in the stands while the pandemic kept them sheltered in? Or did they miss them? While it was widely said that NBA players and professional golfers would prefer to have the stands and fairway sidelines packed with fans, were they really missed? Did the players play with less intensity or effort without the fans? Is this an integrity issue as the one faced by Jamal Wallace in the aforementioned movie?…

The late orator and patriot, Dr. Kenneth McFarland, used to say that “The salesperson is the gas and oil of the free enterprise system.” I suppose today we would need to extrapolate a bit and say that “The salesperson is the gas, oil, green energy, and solution providers of the free enterprise system!” Still, the salesperson’s role in our society is as important if not more so than ever before. Things have changed dramatically, and the most skilled sales professionals are thoughtful change agents who are intensely focused on delivering the greatest value to each client. Anyone who is trying to sell as they did 20-30 years ago is being left behind.   I coined a phrase that I used in my last book, Standing Out From The Crowd, which I think is sound philosophy: Become known for the problems you solve. The best salespeople out there today focus on that…
