Monique Honaman’s Advice on Leadership and Communication

With HR Expert Monique Honaman

When I wanted “The Communication Corner” (my radio interview program on WBCX, “The Voice of Brenau”) to focus on Leadership and Communication, my guest list narrowed to one person–Monique Honaman, President/CEO of the ISHR group in Atlanta, Georgia. We became acquainted several years ago, and have stayed in touch since because of our mutual professional interests. When you listen to the audio, you will hear me provide part of her impressive credentials.

By listening to this audio, you will hear Monique’s advice about vital topics that every dedicated professional needs to be well informed about. Among our discussion items:

*The management style of legendary CEO Jack Welch of General Electric. Monique held leadership roles in GE for a decade during Welch’s time at the top

*How leaders can resolve conflicts among employees

*The HBDI instrument–how it helps people understand and adjust to communication styles unlike their own preferred style

*The vital role of listening skills among top-tier managers

*Why “small talk” really isn’t so small after all

*How extensively should leaders get involved in the Social Media?

*What we risk by reducing face-to-face training sessions and retreats

*The most effective way to break bad news to employees

*Why genuine compliments boost morale

*Maintaining a balanced life in the midst of our customarily frantic pace

Clearly, this audio will be well worth your 60 minutes. After hearing the guidelines Monique proposes, and putting them into action, you will enrich your communication skills–and become the leader you have wanted to be.

Moss Robertson Cadillac Gives Generously

Moss Robertson Contributes to Our Favorite Charity

Because I spent two decades as a professional fund raiser before launching my current company, Championship Communication, I have great respect for prosperous people who give generously to charitable causes. Here’s a recent local example:

You don’t have to be a business genius to know that the automobile industry has experienced serious downturns the last couple of years. Yet my favorite dealer–Moss Robertson Cadillac, based in Gainesville, Georgia–not only survived, but also launched a test drive program that would benefit local charities.

To our delight, Moss and his daughter Katie selected my wife Sandra and me to join other test drive teams in “The Cadillac of Test Drives.” For two days, we enjoyed giving our friends a ride in the 2010 SRX model. The luxury and comfort impressed all of us unforgettably. As I told Moss, “We didn’t go for a ride. . .we went for a glide.”

The test drive teams competed to see how many hits they could attract to their page on the dealer’s Web site. The winner was popular radio talk show host Katie Highsmith of WDUN, who designated Challenged Child and Friends as her preferred charity.

While Challenged Child and Friends earned the largest amount, Moss Robertson Cadillac contributed generously to every team’s favorite cause. In the photo, Moss is giving Sandra and me a check for our charity of choice, Grace Episcopal Church in Gainesville, GA, where we belong. (Pictured left to right, Moss, Sandra, Bill, and Katie Robertson Sanders.)

Immediately after the presentation, Sandra and I stopped at Grace Church and gave Moss Robertson’s check to Doug Dailey, our grateful priest.

Next time I give a motivational speech or seminar, I’m sure to mention how this outstanding Cadillac dealer proved that great business leaders are just as eager to give as they are to get.
