Is Dating Affecting You In The Workplace?

April 11, 2011 - Leave a Response

I hear more and more singles talking about how their dating confusion and frustration is affecting them at work, in their businesses, with their children, everywhere!

Yesterday I was eating lunch at a local restaurant and spoke awhile to the manager. He was a mess. The girl he has been seeing is repeatedly sending him mixed messages. He told me it has caused his mind to race with questions, fears, doubts and uncertainty. Is she using him, does she really like him, is she just insecure, should he trust her, should he move on? He told me he could hardly concentrate on his job. And he definitely was not doing his best!

This is very common in today’s dating process, for men and women alike. I like to say that traditional dating has now become recreational dating. There are no longer any guidelines to help singles know if they are doing right or not. One will expect things to go a certain way while the other has a very different idea of how to progress; causing misunderstandings, frustrations, confusion, breakups, etc.

When we are not peaceful in our dating relationships it upsets our entire life. Our family and friends eventually get tired of hearing us complain, we are exhausted from trying to make it work or just figure it out, and it very often affects our work in a negative way.

Trying to concentrate and be productive on the job or building our businesses can be brutally difficult when our minds are constantly reverting back to the problems in our relationship, or lack of one. It may even be as simple as the excitement and anticipation of a first date with someone new, or a relationship that is really heating up fast!

And what about those of us who have suffered in an abusive or co-dependent relationship – even just a bad relationship can mess with our lives in all areas. I know, I’ve been there. And it gets even worse when you can’t take care of your children the way you know you want to.

And how focused are you on the important things in life (family and finances) when a really great relationship ends in heartache and heartbreak. You are devastated! You thought and believed with all your heart that they were the right person for you. But now they are gone, leaving you alone again, to heal and do it all over again.

I can totally understand. I was out there going through the same thing for forty years. Yes! I said forty.  I was a single mom raising my daughter alone from the time she was two years old. This is why I have such a passion to help singles avoid this horrible process. It hurts! It debilitates us! It is not fair to us, our children or our employers and businesses.

Is it time for you to make a change? To end the madness? To stop the insanity? To change the way you date?

Then it’s time to join singles across the county and become a member of the Dating For Love Club, opening April 30, 2011 at 9:00PM EST.  I will be revealing The Dating For Love Process, The Dating For Love Academy and the Dating for Love Club.

Expressing Yourself on Valentine’s Day

February 9, 2011 - Leave a Response

Did you just start dating someone and find Valentines Day is a difficult place to be? You don’t know each other well enough yet to say “I Love You”. So what is the best thing to do for Valentine’s Day? Read the article 7 Romantic Areas for Showing Love on Valentine’s Day.
http://www.linktoexpert.com/expert_free_products_detail.aspx?typeid=1&id=0&artid=263

Then all you have to do is turn the “I Love You” into “Thinking of You” or “You’re the Best” or “I love getting to know you”. This way you can be romantic without committing to the words “I Love You” before you are ready. Find things you appreciate about the person you are seeing and let them know it. Be honest – they will appreciate you more.

What a wonderful experience I had writing the article 7 Romantic Areas for Showing Love on Valentine’s Day http://www.linktoexpert.com/expert_free_products_detail.aspx?typeid=1&id=0&artid=263

 It was so exciting and fun to write. In the process I read through pages and pages of loving and romantic things people can do for each other. What a wonderful job. However, it was so difficult to decide which ones to choose for the article. Therefore I decided to include a variety of ideas. Which ones will you be using?

Introducing:Christina Courting-Speaker, Author, Courtship & Happiness Coach

July 1, 2010 - Leave a Response

Hello…friends, i would like to introduce Christina Courting, who is
Speaker, Author, Courtship & Happiness Coach
What she has to say,”What I do is not about me…it’s about you! It’s about you becoming more successful. So, please don’t just look at me as a speaker, author and coach but someone who desires the best for you, your event, business, family, club, group or organization. I have a list of classes, courses, seminars, workshops with very interesting topics. Let’s see which will best help you and your group.
Over the years of working with singles (and dating herself) i realized the present dating system is far to confusing, frustrating and not producing the results most singles are looking for. i knew this country needed a whole new way to date, a dating process that will bring the results singles desire. So, over the last several years i created the CourtshipDating process. This new dating process brings healthy relationship values back to the future”.
This is what her client has to say,
“I knew we needed a new dating process, that’s what my book Heartbreak-free Dating for women is all about. So, when I heard about Dating Differently and Courtship-Dating I was thrilled. Now singles, both men and women, can move through important dating stages with healthy guidelines to help them. I will certainly be promoting these books to my clients”.

Former Dating Coach
Present Founder of International Association of Aspiring Authors

How Can You Become a Better Negotiator

July 1, 2010 - Leave a Response

How Can You Become a Better Negotiator
I was recently asked to participate in an interview with Career Builder about negotiation skills in the workplace. The interview focused on any negotiation that takes place and included salaries, vacations, time off and etc. The article was published and the link is below. I also included Three Key Points for a Successful Negotiation that I think you would all find helpful:

http://tinyurl.com/35tlgwu
Three Key Points for a Successful Negotiation:

Be Prepared – Do your homework up front – The negotiation will be won or lost prior to the engagement so do as much homework prior to help ensure success. So it is imperative that you gain clarity of a list of things you know about your needs and those of the other person…It is often difficult to gather insights from the “other side” but the more you can glean and clarify what a “win” means for the both of you the more you can understand where there is alignment Vs differences…this will in turn help you plan and succeed in the negotiation. …some areas of focus include:
Define “a win” – It is imperative to clearly define what an ultimate “overarching win” is for you AND the other person… As an example if you secure a new job and are negotiating salary, it is important for you to know how low you will go to accept the job, and now how high they are willing to pay – if you know this you can identify were the “common ground” or alignment can ultimately be found.
Define Shopping Lists– A shopping list includes multiple things to secure “a win” both you and the other person want to ultimately achieve so identify and clarify essentials and desirables.
Essentials include what you both must achieve – worst case scenario
Desirables include what you both would like to achieve – best case scenario
Define Variables – A variable is something that can be conceded during the negotiation which in some way alters the proposition being discussed…it represents what you and the other person are willing to give up…these are the things you give and take (“I you give me X then I will trade you Y”)
Define Alignment – Identify the common ground for the “win-win” so during the actual negotiation you are viewed as taking the initiative of showing good will of working towards a common goal
Persuade in the Negotiation – I like to look at the negotiation as an opportunity to persuade another person to ultimately accepting your points. If you’ve done your homework and clearly know where the alignment is you can always work towards that goal in a persuasive manner…sticking to the overarching objective of a win-win, securing your shopping lists and giving and taking on variables. Letting them clearly know when you’ve given some thing of value yet, being grateful when they have as well.
Be in the moment, listen and show empathy – When you are totally in the moment, listening and communicating, you can get the other person talking which in turn allows hear more and know what “next moves” you’d like to make (i.e. if you sense fear then help eliminate the fears or leverage it as an opportunity). In addition, chances are that you didn’t get the total picture of their needs in the “homework” phase, so know is the time to hone in what they view as an ultimate win so you can work towards that goal.
Aim High – Remember this is a negotiation and you will have “give and take” so start at an aggressive point so you have plenty of room to maneuver…in addition you can be assured that the other person will be taking an aggressive stance and aiming high too.
Working the variables and concessions – Use those variables and concessions to work your way toward the aligned “win-win” stance…it’s OK to keep giving the concessions until you’ve reached your “what a win looks like” area…an you keep working them until they reached theirs – don’t be giving if they aren’t giving…know the zone of the “win-win.”
Close – Always seek “win-win” but don’t be afraid to walk away – I’m not saying get angry, or negative and closing the door for good, but know when you’ve exhausted options and need to step away…you may need to walk for awhile before they come back….most often than not, if you’ve done your homework up front, and negotiated in good faith during the process, then it is not yet over…it ends when you or they have dipped below what is perceived as the “win-win” point. There are indeed “win-lose” scenarios…but that is not to the benefit of either of you in the long term.
