How do we grow in our comfort zones?

A few years ago, my daughter convinced me to zipline while vacationing in Costa Rica. I never imagined ziplining on a small easy course near my home let alone flying at speeds of 20-25 miles per hour on lines up to 50 feet in the air and 780 feet in length. It wasn't in my comfort zone, so I thought. Our adventure began on horseback, riding up to the top of a mountain. We then headed on a zipline that routed us through trees and across the slopes of a mountain. The view was truly breathtaking. It was scary at [...]

Communicate with the Intent to Learn

How intentional are you with your communication? You may be one of those people who dread networking events or meeting new people but perhaps you need to change your mindset.  Engage in small talk with new people with the intention to learn something new. Instead of focusing on what you are going to say, go into the conversation ready to gain new information and get in the mindset to ask questions. Learn about that person, what he does and what you could learn from him. Ask the person about his or her expertise or career. Listen to the answers, be [...]

Strategizing with Trump

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group We have all heard the question: If you could go out to lunch with anyone who would it be? With my own little twist on it, I would want to be asked: If I could have my dream client today, who would it be? Not for any political reasons but for my love of strategy, there is no president I would want to work for more than President Trump. I have closely watched this tango he has engaged in with the media for years now, and the two have been in a [...]

Minding the Media

Do you have a story to tell? Media relationships are instrumental when securing an interview, but the key is really having a story to tell. The first thing we do with our clients is to identify their stories. Once you know your stories, we then help our clients figure out how to tell them and to whom. There really is not a one-size fits all approach to media messages. Not all reporters are going to care about the same story. The way you deliver a message to the media may not be the same way you tell your story to [...]
