Considered Manhattan’s most exclusive building, the Dakota is a co-op built in 1884 on the corner of 72nd Street and Central Park West on the Upper West Side. John Lennon was murdered outside in 1980, and his widow, Yoko Ono, still lives in their apartment. The building was also the setting for Roman Polanski’s classic 1968 creeper, “Rosemary’s Baby.”
The perfect setting for an old-fashioned, “dead body in a locked room” whodunit.

Atomic Blonde (2017)—The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton is equal parts spycraft, sensuality, and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
Charlize Theron plays Lorraine Broughton, a MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin just days before the collapse of the Wall in 1989 to retrieve a list of top secret British operatives and to crack down on the persons responsible for the death of a fellow undercover agent. In order to achieve her objectives, Lorraine joins forces with a shady spy, played by James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class, Split), and a sexy French agent, played by Sofia Boutella (The Mummy).
The story, which is mostly relayed in flashback by Lorraine while she is interrogated by a MI6 superior, played by Toby Jones (The Mist, Captain America: Winter Soldier), and a CIA bigwig, played by John Goodman, is intricate, but the details are ultimately inconsequential. Like the James Bond 007 films that influenced it, Atomic Blonde is less concerned with plot mechanics and more interested in style and cinematic presence. Even if you walk out of this film not remembering who betrayed who or who stole whose secret plans, you will likely never forget Charlize Theron’s Lorraine, who commands awe and attention with her icy glares, her sleek body language, and her physical ferocity. Theron will probably not be nominated for any Academy Awards here like she has with her past roles, but this film encapsulates everything wonderful about the way that she combines sensuality and toughness.
Atomic Blonde features a love scene between Charlize Theron and Sofia Boutella. Just go ahead and stick a fork in me, because cinema will probably never get any better than this.
This movie also features a brilliant eight-minute stairwell fight scene which appears to be a long continuous single-take, although there are a handful of subtle hidden cuts. This sequence easily wins my vote for the best action scene of 2017 so far.
I love another pivotal fight scene that takes place in a movie theater while Andrei Tarkovsky’s enigmatic, but excellent 1979 film, Stalker, is playing. The screen shots from Stalker provide a rather fitting backdrop for Cold War physical combat.
The music soundtrack of Atomic Blonde is rather heavy-handed, but I can easily forgive the obviousness, because the songs all evoke golden nostalgia for my own 1980s youth. We’ve got New Order – “Blue Monday”, David Bowie – “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)”, Peter Schilling – “Major Tom”, After the Fire – “Der Kommissar”, Re-Flex – “The Politics of Dancing”, Siouxsie and the Banshees – “Cities in Dust”, ‘Til Tuesday – “Voices Carry”, A Flock of Seagulls – “I Ran (So Far Away)”, George Michael – “Father Figure”, Nena – “99 Luftballoons”, Depeche Mode – “Behind the Wheel”, and a handful of faithful covers to other beloved tracks from the era. I do not usually bother with movie soundtrack albums, but I’d like to buy the soundtrack for this one.
I will not go so far as to say that Atomic Blonde is a masterpiece, but it is an insanely fun slice of action, eroticism, and atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Just like makeup of its ilk that she’s used before. Rind is not only unbecoming. It’s caustic and parasitic. When worn the wearer feels like sulfuric acid has been thrown in her face.
The agony of wearing it feeds Miss Kane’s masochistic cravings. It eats away pretty leaving only hard-faced in its disfiguring wake. Drawn and haggard, and age lines to boot apply to her face when wearing it. Thus, fetching, let alone ravishing, do not apply when wearing it at all. Yet, to Ms. Rohm, it is a ruined face that overdrives the bull to flights of covetous fancy.
Based upon past employment, and as previously stated or at least implied. There’s always the pecking order to consider. As such, in combination with her sternka and sternns, Miss Kane’s makeup tweaks itself for maximum severity to do its part to render the girl into, to put it kindly, a no-nonsense executive secretary while on active duty in service of her new vain-and-envious female boss. To put it bluntly, working in concert with her hairdo and eyeglasses, Miss Kane’s makeup ravages her face. Making her look serious, businesslike—i.e., tolerating no nonsense; very serious about doing things in a direct and efficient way without any foolishness or nonsense.
Rule Number One: the boss [Ms. Rohm] is AWAYS right. Rule Number Two: when the boss [Ms. Rohm] is wrong, remember rule number one. Rule Number Three: the looks of Ms. Rohm’s Friday can NEVER upstage hers, their looks MUST be in sync at all [on duty] times. All three are rules that Miss Kane displays an intimate knowledge of. Because all three are givens—i.e., the same rules that can be applied to one’s employment with any god of Ms. Rohm’s chronology.
Therefore, Ms. Rohm sports a severe ravaged face, then her Friday must also sport a severe ravaged face. Key to both facial “presentations” is the rind makeup that both women wear. Ms. Rohm wears rind exclusively, which means that while on-duty Miss Kane must now exclusively wear it too.
Moore Atomic Blonde. Rind is the makeup that feels like it’s melting your face while in reality it’s melting your brain driving you in insane in the process. Of course, Ms. Rohm and Miss Kane are already insane. They were born that way—i.e., stark, raving mad. In a word, deranged lunatics from the git go, who are evil incarnate. Depraved evil incarnate times two.
“It was total bullshit. Including the whole Harry Houdini angle. An expert frame. Houdini is a scapegoat, murdered by moi. In point of fact, I committed all of the murders that you have been tasked with solving. You are the fly caught willingly and willfully in the web of the black widow spider me.”
A haughty laugh ensues.
Miss Kane sits down obediently in the makeup chair. Ms. Rohm stands behind her.
“It would be so easy to dispose of you permanently. But. I’ve decided to keep you, instead. You’re better off with me, anyways. After all, you’re a villain, not a hero, as you well know.”
The bull conjures with her hands to touch up the girl’s makeup more to her liking. Although she is a wizard, she is well schooled in all forms of magic, therefore she isn’t entirely dependent upon a wand for all of her spell casting.
The girl’s face now looks even worse which feeds Ms. Rohm’s vanity to no end. This is truly more to the bull’s liking. Confident that she has ensnared the girl. She turns her back on Miss Kane and heads for the closet, having decided that the Vampire would look less upstaging of her if the girl were wearing her spare Kaye and flats in place of Koo and careys.
Ms. Rohm never makes it to the closet alive. Miss Kane caves in the back of her skull with a gloved fist. The girl cums to the killing. Mondo Kane is back, and she’s back in spades.
“For your sake, I think it is better that I’m a villain with rules. Else you’d be disposed of, post haste,” Mondo taunts as she stands over the fallen god.
The Lost girl kicks Ms. Rohm’s corpse in the face and ribs several times for good measure. Then. She gestures arcanely and the rind is replaced by her usual fetching Bolshoi. Her ravishing looks return, post haste—that hard pretty face of hers. The girl lets her hair down and purses her sternns. Lush, silky, yellow-blonde tresses drape her shoulders and breasts—i.e., “board” straight hair parted down the center, as if it is the product of South Floridian Stella Luca’s authentic Japanese “Yuko” straightening. Like her dowdy sternka, plain strait hair imparts a most becoming severity upon the vicious loathsome girl, accentuating her natural haughtiness and aloofness.
Mondo sits down on the Italian marble bed and waits for the butch god to resurrect. What she doesn’t do, in spite of Ms. Rohm’s free admission of guilt, is call security. For the time being, she’s keeping this “all between us two girls”, so to speak.
Bill Russell changed the nature of professional basketball by the way he played the center position. In fact, his number 6 jersey was retired by the Boston Celtics in 1972 to honor his contributions to the teams that won nine consecutive NBA titles.
So you might wonder about his take on team work. After all, he was an expert.
When asked about that, Russell said, “The most important measure of how good a game I played was how much better I’d made my teammates play.”
My reaction was “Wow!” Everybody talks about teamwork, but no one focuses on what it means to be a great TEAM PLAYER.
I’ve found that great team players do three things. (And so do great team leaders, supervisors, managers, leaders, and family members.)
When you think about your teammates, put a “10” on each of their heads. If you think of your teammates as “10’s,” you’ll show your respect in several ways. By contrast, your behavior is totally different when you think of someone as a “3.”
Hewlett-Packard found a unique way to show how much they valued their team members. One morning, several team members found “subpoenas” under their doors when they showed up for work. They were summoned to “jury duty” that day instead of their usual duties. The company had planned an elaborate “trial” to determine the fate of its new business plan.
One team of employees argued against the plan, while another group defended it. A third group sat in the “jury box.” After each side made its argument in a two-day trial, the jury reached a decision and every one of the team members returned to work excited and talking about the company’s new direction. Each team member felt valued.
As you look at your team, take a look at how much you value each member. And take a look at how much you show it. As business advisor William Dale Crist says, “No one person is indispensable, but all people are important.”
They know each other. They know each other’s dreams, values, skills, attitudes, and challenges. And they care about those things. Quite simply, you can’t be a great team player if you don’t care about what your teammates care about.
(This is one of the 7 Immutable Laws of Success you will learn at my free webinar on September 14th, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Put it on your calendar. It will be your first chance to learn about my new Extraordinary Success 2.0 Master Class for which 24 people will be chosen to participate.)
So how do you find out what your teammates care about? Consultant Patrick Costello would say, “Create an environment of candor and encourage courageous conversations!”
I totally agree. Of course it may take a while, but your investment of time almost always gives a big return. After all, communication IS the pathway to trust.
So take some time to get to know your team members. Schedule an annual overnight offsite meeting where you talk about the important things in your life and big challenges in your work. Spend some “time around the campfire,” modeling openness, tuned-in listening, and candid discussion.
And the best way I’ve found to do that is through the asking of Brave Questions. It has literally transformed the communication of thousands of people, teams, and family members.
Here’s what Deb Olswold, of the world’s most renowned medical clinic, said,
“I have always been a very shy person, always in the background of the workplace, family, and personal life. Not anymore! I was asked to interview for a high ranking Administrative Assistant position just before I bought your BRAVE QUESTIONS book. I read the book and wrote a few of the questions on a small piece of paper, such as ‘Where do they want to be in one to two years … Who are they looking for … and … What do they expect from me?’ I sat with confidence through the interview.”
“When it was time for me to ask any questions, I simply asked two of your Brave Questions. Within the hour I had received a call from the HR department offering me the position. Yes, I accepted it and have thanked you daily in my prayers. Your book on BRAVE QUESTIONS helped me get the best job I have ever had.”
But there’s more. Deb went on to say, “I love the way your Brave Question technique has affected the rest of my life and career. I can finally ask questions with confidence and move into a meeting with ease. The ‘shy secretary’ fades away and the new confidence emerges. I always knew I could be a speaker, but I didn’t realize I would love it so much. The BRAVE QUESTIONS book gave me confidence beyond what I thought possible for myself. Do I have butterflies? You bet I do, but I can do it!”
If you’d like to master the same technique, you can get your copy of my Brave Questions book by clicking here.
Great team players approach life as a win-win … because they know that making others better isn’t just better for the other person … it’s better for everyone.
Customer service is like that. The customer and the provider are basically a team and it’s a good team if both sides win.
Such was the case with the waiter and the patron. The waiter asked, “What can I get for you today.”
“I’ll take the meat loaf dinner and a bit of good advice,” said the man seated in the booth. Minutes later, the waiter returned with a hot plate of food. “Here you go.”
“Hey, what about the good advice I asked for?” The waiter leaned down and whispered, “Don’t eat the meat loaf.”
That’s what teamwork is all about. You help the other person to be better off.
And you make your teammates look good. That’s what the famous pianist Paderewski did.
Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, a mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were seated, the mother spotted an old friend in the audience and walked down the aisle to greet her. Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall, the little boy rose and eventually explored his way through a door marked “NO ADMITTANCE.” When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that the child was missing.
Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway piano on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit. Keep playing.”
Then, leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child, and he added a running obbligato. Together, the old master and the young novice transformed what could have been a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience. The audience was so mesmerized that they couldn’t recall what else the great master played. Only the classic, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
That’s the way it is with great team players. Besides being good themselves, they bring out the best in their teammates.
Action – Make a list of all your team members. Write down the number you place on them, from a “1” to a “10.” And then make a determined effort to treat everyone like a “10” and watch what results you get.
Dr. Zimmerman’s Tuesday Tip, Issue 897 – What It Really Takes to Be a Team Player
Jack Dempsey was one of Tyson’s idols, and he studied him all he could, often sitting down with Cus D’amato to watch old fights of his. From their shifting bob and weaves to their off balance explosiveness, there is a great deal in common between Iron Mike and the Manassa Mauler.
Whiskey – Huma Huma
If Muhammad Ali had met Mike Tyson in the ring, who would have come out victorious? Both men were the greatest ever at their particular styles; styles that could not have been more different. Ali was a Defensive counter puncher, who used his leaning head movement to make his opponents chase after him. Tyson was an Aggressive counter puncher, who used his low head movement to run down his adversaries. Peakaboo vs Butterfly. Bob and weave vs “Lean back style.” After watching their highlights, who do you think would win?

Exit stage left, the butch Frau Schmidt. Enter stage right, another gender-bending fixation to fill her shoes for Miss Kane to obsess about.
Someone stops to watch, intently. Like the butch Frau Schmidt, she too has a thick Prussian accent. Her name is Greta Rohm, Ms. Greta Rohm.
The butch Ms. Rohm is the spitting image of Rosa Klebb, the fictitious KGB colonel in From Russia with Love, the 1963 entry in the James Bond spy series. Therefore, Ms. Rohm is neither attractive nor is she very feminine-looking.
A research librarian, by trade. And, a wizard of the first order, by avocation—with a wand up each sleeve. She is not human. The seventy-something bulldyke, of indeterminable chronological age, is a Grone—i.e., half Gnome and half Crone. And. She is quite old. Ancient, in point of fact. And. She’s a founding member of the Ladies Council, as well as an august book marshal and the LC’s noted scholar in residence. Needless to say, she is a god.
Just like the fictitious Frau Klebb, Ms. Rohm, in appearance, represents the anti-feminine: squat and solid, with thick legs and very strong calves for a woman—overtly masculine in manner and in mannerisms with a deep [for a woman], raspy voice.
Her sternns, dykish moe, and strictured Kaye, complemented by thick black stockings, contribute to create an overall impression of a grotesquely deviant femininity. Furthermore, and expectedly … Pointed, projectile breasts thanks to a Bosom Envy bra. Perls. Cigarette purse clipped to the waistband of her skirt. Heavy, harsh, unbecoming make-up. And always wears gloves [prudz] in public.
In a word. You would understandably be tempted to call her a walking, talking, reiteration of Frau Schmidt. Except for the fact that Ms. Rohm is supernatural, stocky, and she preceded Frau Schmidt by millennia.
Unlike what you’d expect of someone who looks so butch, the thickset Ms. Rohm never wears Parts [uncircumcised or otherwise or any strap-on for that matter], preferring not to be a she-male.
Her stance against dildos is unshakeable. In her opinion, “If God had meant for me to have a penis, I would have been born with one.” Besides, she prefers to be a rug muncher—i.e., to eat, and to be eaten by, her fellow woman.
She wears plain white cotton panties with a high waist that have been starched to within an inch of their life. Being modern underwear, like her bra, they are self-cleaning and look steam pressed by an iron in hygiene mode.
Her vintage footwear sums it all up nicely. Clunky heel platform mid-calf boots. By Victorian Splendor 130. Available only in two-tone black and white, emulating the look of tall white spats over black ankle boots. These leather mid-calf boots feature side button closure and a half platform sole balanced by a chunky heel. Translation: I am a very old thing, who prefers vintage footwear; I’m not hip, nor do I wish to be—i.e., I’m stiff-backed and decidedly old-fashioned, and very proud of it.
The unsmiling Ms. Rohm walks up to the pair—user and used—as if for a closer look at what’s what. Mrs. Peel disengages from the girl, grabs its shopping cart, and leaves. Its eyes are no longer glowing.
She flashes her credentials in the girl’s face—a mere formality, because Miss Kane knows who and what Ms. Rohm is, and what, correction who, the old biddy is here for. No longer in the glamor of the Parasite queen, the girl responds in kind upon seeing the bull’s badge by sobering up, triple time. Even in this ravaged state, there’s much about the girl for Ms. Rohm to find fetching.
An avowed and avid teetotaler, Ms. Rohm brooks nothing less than complete sobriety on her watch. In officially taking possession of Miss Kane from Coco as her Girl Friday. Miss Kane is expected to be sober at all times, while on duty.
Ms. Rohm is known to be an ultra-conservative, with very conventional tastes. And. Miss Kane knows just what she must look like to appease her loathsome, haughty, straight-laced better.
The girl’s right tit goes from moog back to tit. Her lizard brain and pineal gland shrink back to their normal size—no longer displacing her frontal lobes rendering her mindless—i.e., mentally, she’s no longer a Parasite and is herself again. Her ghoulish eyes revert back to baby blues. Her ruined face is rapidly healing.
Miss Kane proceeds with the usual dowdy transformation. Sternns. Non geriatric sternka. Her biomechanical underwear, the hand-bra and Parts, are pursed. In their place, she is again wearing her legitimate bra and panties—i.e., fancy French-cut Bosom Envy-2  brassiere and plain flesh-colored rubber bikini panties.
Bosom Envy-2 and Bosom Envy are identical, except for one pivotal detail. Bosom Envy has pointy cups, befitting the archetypical bullet bra that it is. Bosom Envy-2 has rounded modern cups. Blunt vs. points, the eternal choice for bra cups.
“My. My. My. A Vampire on bended knee, at the beck and call of a mindless parasite.”
Miss Kane applies the finishing touches to make herself presentable.
“The weakness of a drunken junkie whore.”
Ms. Rohm slaps the girl hard—back and forth—across the face, several times. Inwardly, the depraved Borg cunt smiles at the corporal punishment being administered to her, deriving great pleasure from each and every blow. The old woman is an expert striker, and has a considerable talent for violence, disciple, degradation, and humiliation.
In deference to her better, although they both know that she enjoyed getting hit, the girl’s face remains expressionless. As outwardly unsmiling, as the no-nonsense sour-faced Ms. Rohm.
“You know how to talk to your betters, Miss Kane. Always exercise that knowledge, in my presence.”
“You will speak only when spoken to, Miss Kane. Capish?”
Miss Kane responds with the appropriate silence. Ms. Rohm is pleased. She reaches around and squeezes the girl’s tight flat ass. Again, Miss Kane’s face remains expressionless. In sharp contrast, Ms. Rohm’s sour face shows the covetous expression of an older butch woman who is getting her rocks off groping the pancake ass of a much younger smoking-hot chick.
“Now, it’s my turn to subjugate you, Miss Kane. So. There will no longer be any more of these unacceptable vulgar displays of yours when you parade around as the drunken junkie whore in public. Of course. What you do with yourself, off-duty, in private, is your own business.”
Again, Miss Kane says absolutely nothing in response.
“It’s time for us to return to the LC. There are still things you must wrap up for Coco.”
Ms. Rohm gestures arcanely. Shallow, envious, vindictive, and petty, when it comes to the physical attractiveness of other women. She intends that the girl’s face is ruined in such a way to utmost please her and other women of the elderly butch persuasion.
The girl’s becoming beauty-amplifying Bolshoi [make-up] gives way to the same heavy, harsh, unbecoming make-up as Ms. Rohm’s. Colloquially known as “rind” make-up. This pancake makeup is the death knell for the girl’s ravishing looks. The makeup alone ages the girl, giving the twenty-something girl the face of a bitter forty-something divorcee who has been rode hard and put up wet too many times to count.
Ravaging rind make-up, coupled with the dowdiness of her sternns and sternka. Results in the girl remaining smoking hot from the neck down, and a complete turn off from the neck up to anyone but a sexually twisted person like Ms. Rohm. In a word. Miss Kane is a frumpy sexpot spinster.
Ms. Rohm lovingly strokes the robot girl’s left cheek.
“Excellent. Now your looks are no longer competition for mine. And. They never will be while you’ll on-duty in my employ. Of course. How you look off-duty is your own business. But. Sooner, not later, I wager I will have twisted you such that you will prefer to look this way all of the time, and when I’m done with you I wager you will never crave the touch of a man and the only women you will want to be with will be elderly and butch like me.”
Ms. Rohm turns around and heads out of the alley. Miss Kane dutifully falls in step behind her new mistress and newest sex addiction. The depraved butch dominatrix presses all the right buttons as far as Miss Kane is concerned. Although both women are ultra-violent dominatrices. Miss Kane is clearly the masochistic submissive Girl Friday of Ms. Rohm.
Comedian Rich Hall offers a test to help you determine which economic class you’re in. He says, “If the BUILDING you work in has your name on it, you are a part of the upper class. If your DESK has your name on it, you are a part of the middle class. If the SHIRT you wear to work has your name on it, you are part of the working class.”
I’m not sure that’s totally true, but I do know there is often a lack of trust among the classes and even among the members of the same team. And that’s a problem. As I say in my presentations, “Trust is a must or the relationship will bust.” Trust is the foundation of every strong, effective team.
So how do you build trust?
As Alan Mulally, the former CEO of the Ford Motor Company, said “You can’t manage a secret.”
Get everyone in a meeting to participate … to really participate. For example, if you have some quiet people on your team, from time to time ask for their feedback. Ask them how they’re reacting.
And that means asking more than surface, yes or no questions. It means more than asking, “Are you okay with this?” More often than not, those kinds of questions won’t get much of a response. The quiet people will give a polite “Yes” or “Yeah, I’m okay.” But that doesn’t tell you very much.
So try a behavioral description … followed by a question. For example, “I notice you haven’t said anything for 30 minutes” or “I notice you looking down. What are you thinking about all of this?” You’ll probably get a much more informative response.
Or use my Brave Question technique. It works for your teams on the job as well as at home. Sid Slatter said,
“I was a 35-year old General Contractor and the epitome of the husband who did not communicate well with his wife. But then I attended your Extraordinary Success 2.0 Master Class and learned about Brave Questions. I purchased your book on Brave Questions: Building Stronger Relationships by Asking All the Right Questions, and, boy do I owe you a huge thank you. If you were to see me and my wife now, you might think we were on our first or second date. This book has also helped me to build better relationships with my customers and employees.”

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “It is not fair to ask others what you are unwilling to do yourself.”Or put another way, you can’t expect your team members to be totally honest and open if you aren’t.
So get rid of your pretense. Be yourself … with no embellishments. Get rid of your little cover-ups of the real truth. The only way your team members can trust you is if they know … what they see is what they get.
Trust is almost impossible in a climate of secrecy. The same goes for success.
When Alan Mulally took over the reins of the struggling Ford Motor Company, he found an internal culture filled with silos, where people and departments walled themselves off from everyone and everything else in the company.
A silo culture extended from the company’s overall structure into individual divisions and subdivisions. Each of Ford’s four operating divisions had its own unique management, product development, and manufacturing units. Even minor parts such as mirrors, hinges, and springs were specific to each vehicle line, requiring more than 30 different platforms company-wide. By contrast, Ford’s competitors, such as General Motors and Toyota, had only five or six.
Information was also “siloed.” Mulally was aghast that the operating groups didn’t even share financial data. When he began requiring them to do so, they were equally aghast and called him privately to make sure he meant it. He did mean it. As he said, “You can’t manage a secret.”
Silo thinking even extended into Ford’s management meetings. So Mulally required division chiefs to meet weekly … instead of monthly … to make certain all data gets discussed. More importantly, the chiefs had to attend the meetings and they had to bring a different assistant to each meeting so the word got out more quickly.
To keep discussion flowing once meetings start, Mulally has banned the thick briefing books managers used to bring to defend their every position. The phrase “I don’t know,”once feared at Ford, was now encouraged when applicable. To prevent attendees from being distracted from all this information, side conversations while someone else was talking were forbidden.
Somehow, a great leader knows that you can’t expect your customers to trust your company if the people in the company don’t even trust each other. So kick down those silos … at work, at home, in your relationships … IF you want trust-filled relationships. You really have no other choice.
Now this is going to sound old fashioned, but trust can only exist in an atmosphere of commitment. That’s why the original marriage vows asked the man and woman to pledge their loyalty to one another, in good times and in bad, until death pulled them apart.
By contrast, trust cannot grow in a relationship if one or both of the parties feels free to cut and run at any time. And the same thing goes for trust on the job. Trust cannot be maintained if labor or management sees the other as disposable.
Trust is built when we know … we really know … we’re in this together. And we’re going to do whatever it takes to make the relationship work.
The fact is … trust is built and trust continues to grow in a team when all the team members know the power of sticking together. The famous Aesop of “Aesop’s Fables”talked about that hundreds of years ago.
In one of his stories, there was a farmer who had a quarrelsome family, filled with rivalry, bickering, and mistrust. He couldn’t reconcile their differences with words, so he thought he might readily prevail by an example.
He called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him. Then, having tied the sticks into a bundle, he told the lads, one after another, to take it up and break it. They all tried, but tried in vain. Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one. This they did with the greatest ease.
Then said the father, “Thus, my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for all your enemies, but differ and separate, and you are undone.”
Action – List five ways you could dramatically increase the quantity and quality of communication in your marriage … team … or organization.

Mike Tyson was one of the most exiting and controversial champions of our lifetime. Explosive and unpredictable, Tyson was a stick of dynamite that could go off at any second. In his prime, he was always in the perfect position to deliver a knockout blow. Tyson was trained by arguably the greatest boxing coach of all time, Cus D’ Amato. D’ Amato honed Tyson into an aggressive counter puncher by teaching Mike his style of fighting; the Peekaboo Style.
Iron Mike Tyson was one of the most powerful fighters to ever lace up gloves. Nearly every punch Tyson threw had the potential to knock out his competitors. What set Tyson apart from the common brawlers of his era was his commitment to technique and his vast knowledge of the fundamentals of boxing.
Tyson knew power mechanics so well, he could use risky, unorthodox methods against even skilled competitors. This resulted in Tyson developing two punches that were absolutely devastating to his opponents: his arching uppercut, and leaping left hook.

Get Yourself A College Girl (1964) Official Trailer – Mary Ann Mobley, Joan O’Brien Movie HD
A college co-ed tries to balance her time writing songs and dealing with her publisher whom tries to pursue her.
Welcome to the Fandango MOVIECLIPS Trailer Vault Channel. Where trailers from the past, from recent to long ago, from a time before YouTube, can be enjoyed by all. We search near and far for original movie trailer from all decades. Feel free to send us your trailer requests and we will do our best to hunt it down.
Get Yourself a College Girl is a 1964 Metrocolor film comedy in the style of a beach party movie. The plot involves a college co-ed who tries to balance her time writing songs and dealing with her publisher who tries to pursue her. It was directed by Sidney Miller and written by Robert E. Kent, and filmed at Sun Valley, Idaho,USA.
Turner Classic Movies critic Mel Neuhaus calls it “A curious 1964 hybrid of teen movie musical with pre-feminist overtones as well as a parody of moralistic anti-rock message films.” It is notable for the appearance of Astrud Gilberto, the Brazilian singer who sang the international hit song “The Girl From Ipanema”, appearing as herself in the film.
Terry Taylor (Mary Ann Mobley) is a senior at conservative Wyndham College for Women and, under an assumed name, a successful pop songwriter. After her publisher Gary Underwood (Chad Everett) unknowingly exposes her career, Wyndham’s board of trustees—including the college founder’s grandson, California State Senator Hubert Morrison (Willard Waterman)—condemns Terry for indecent behavior
To distract herself from a possible expulsion, Terry, her friends Sue Ann Mobley (Chris Noel) and Lynne (Nancy Sinatra), and their physical-education instructor Marge Endicott (Joan O’Brien) travel to Sun Valley, Idaho for a Christmas-break ski vacation. There they meet Gary and his artist friend Armand (Fabrizio Mioni); Senator Morrison, who wants to solicit the youth vote; and Lynne’s husband.
The Dave Clark Five, The Animals, and other musical acts perform in the background as Gary and Armand romance Terry and Sue Ann, respectively, while Lynne and her husband spend the entire vacation in their room. Senator Morrison courts Marge and shows that he is a talented dancer, but an embarrassing newspaper photograph threatens his reelection. The others demonstrate his support among the young by holding a successful telephone poll with musical performances.

Editors note: With such a plot how on earth did this movie get made?
From the 1964 Panavision teen movie, “Get Yourself A College Girl”. State Senator Willard Waterman is one uptight dude, but a politician with his ear to the ground. In danger of losing his election he decides to go to a ski resort to see what the youth of today are all about. Music publisher Chad Everett and coed/songwriter Mary Ann Mobley are ready to show him as well.
No band, just their record playing in this “Go Go” tiki club dance party scene from “Get Yourself A College Girl” (1964). Looks like Lori Williams at around the 50 sec mark. Nancy Sinatra and Chris Noel are in this movie too (but not this clip).

Muhammad Ali is the self proclaimed greatest of all time, and it’s hard to argue with him. Today we are going to break down how Ali used his footwork, speed, and a unique sequence of steps to circle his opponents far out of range and then dash in and out with a quick jab.
Ali wore his opponents down and then threw a quick flurry to knock them out. He had blinding speed and incredible grace.

Muhammad Ali is well known for his incredible footwork and hand speed, but he also had a brilliant and unorthodox method of defense. He called it his “lean back style”, and in this video we will break down how he used head movement, footwork, and devastating counters to dominate his opponents.
We’re in the midst of a leadership crisis. And you can see it just about everywhere you look. In business, education, government, health care, religion, and even our families. We’re in a leadership crisis because …
Some motivational speakers and authors may have convinced you that “attitude is everything.” That’s a lie.
As I tell my clients, when you motivate an idiot, all you get is a motivated idiot.
I believe attitude is a big piece of the effective leadership puzzle and I teach people how to get and keep their attitudes in great shape. BUT, attitude in and of itself is never enough to turn an ordinary person into an extraordinary leader. Likewise, we’re in a leadership crisis because …
You have been told by some well-meaning educators that the only way to develop leaders is to give them more training and more education. That’s another lie.
I will tell the 24 mentees in my new Extraordinary Success 2.0 Master Class that education without motivation serves no useful purpose. (I’ll give you a free introductory webinar on this Master Class in September.)
We all know highly educated people who have just enough motivation to finish a class or get a degree, but they are not motivated enough to apply anything they learn. Truly effective leadership takes Attitude + Education + Character. And we place almost no emphasis on character whatsoever in so many of our cultures, which contributes to our leadership crisis. That’s why I wrote about character so much in my latest book on The Payoff Principle and is why it hit #1 best-seller status on Amazon.com. Click here to get your copy, or to get another copy to share with a friend.
To develop your character,
People of character refrain from denial. They don’t fool themselves and they don’t lie to themselves … because they know that would be self-defeating. As Anne Morrow Lindbergh noted, “The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is insincerity.”
People of character “take stock” of themselves, something we could use to help ease our leadership crisis. Charlie Gomez, the vice president of a major insurance company, affirmed that. At a conference where the two of us were speaking, Charlie challenged all the insurance agents in the audience to “take stock”… by asking themselves the following questions:
As Charlie said, “You need to know” these things because they’re all a part of the “recipe for success.”
Do you take time to assess yourself, where you are, and where you’d like to be? Do you take time to take an honest look at yourself and what you’re doing? You need to do this, because, as I tell my clients, “If what you are doing won’t withstand analysis, you probably shouldn’t be doing it.”
That means no distortions. No little white lies. No false fronts, nor bravado. And no failures to tell the truth. Character comes out in plain, simple … but tactful … honesty.
One pompous Colonel had a hard time with that, however. Having just moved into his new office and sitting at his new desk, a Private knocked on the door. The Colonel told the Private to enter and then quickly picked up the phone and said, “Yes General, I’ll be seeing the Brigadier this afternoon and I’ll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, Sir.”
Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the Private, the Colonel asked, “What do you want?”
“Nothing important, Sir. Just here to hook up your telephone.”
Obviously the Colonel had a problem being honest with others – a symptom of leadership crisis. Do you? Do you find it easier to tell the unvarnished truth or the embellished truth? And do you craft your words to “give the right impression” … even though that impression may not be accurate?
Of course, it’s not easy to be honest with others … each and every time. After all, you can spend years building an honest reputation and you can destroy it in one minute with one stupid lie. The papers are filled with such stories. As consultant Faith Baldwin notes, “Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down with incredible swiftness.”
By contrast, people of character are open to the honest feedback of others. When Johannes Brahm’s first piano concerto was booed at its premiere performance, the composer was duly disappointed. But he wrote to a friend, “I honestly think this is the best thing that could have happened. It forces me to buckle down, and it builds up courage.”
Hey, being open to the feedback of others might even save your life. Take the man who was bothered with continual ringing in his ears, bulging eyes, and a flushed face. Over a period of three years he went to doctor after doctor. One took out his tonsils, one his appendix, another pulled all his teeth. He even tried a goat gland treatment in Switzerland … all to no avail. Finally, one doctor told him there was no hope — he had six months to live.
The poor fellow quit his job, sold all his belongings and decided to live it up in the time he had left. He went to his tailor and ordered several suits and shirts. The tailor measured his neck and wrote down 16 and 1/2. The man corrected him: 15 and 1/2. The tailor measured again: 16 and 1/2. But the man INSISTED that he’d always worn a size 15 and 1/2. “Well, all right,” said the tailor, “but don’t come back here complaining to me if you have ringing ears, bulging eyes, and a flushed face!”
Some people find it difficult to receive feedback. As one person noted, “A skeptic is a person who … when he sees the handwriting on the wall … claims it to be forgery.”
Other people have a hard time with feedback because they pretend to know everything. But as another person noted, “Unless you can create the whole universe in six days, then perhaps giving advice to God isn’t such a good idea.”
How would people describe you when it comes to feedback? As being open and receptive? Or closed and defensive? Character comes from the former, not the later.
Action: Take a look at yourself. How honest are you with yourself? Remember, one of the greatest impediments to success is pretending not to know what you know.
