KGS191 | How To Lead Proactively During Times Of Racial Tension And Help Your People Safely Process Their Emotions by Kingsley Grant
+++ LEAD OR BE LED +++ When leaders put their heads in the sand and act as if "Rome isn't burning" around them, they fail to lead. When leaders hope that "this" will just go away, they have another surprise coming.

KGS190 | Which Of These 5 Benefits Of Effective Communication Does Your Team Need Right Now by Kingsley Grant
+++ IT'S MORE THAN HOW +++ Have you ever heard someone say, "it's not what you say, but how you say it?" What were your thoughts on that? Do you agree? If you agree, you're partially right. Because it is not just how you say it, but when, where, and why.  You can say something the right way that needed to be said but you chose the wrong timing, which can undo all your best efforts. Right? Also, where you say it is also very important.  One of the places that saying the right thing at the right time in the right way and for the right reason is needed, is in the workplace.  How often has a leader failed at this with disastrous consequences? In this episode, you'll discover 5 benefits that your team would do well simply by learning how to be an effective communicator. You'll also hear what being an effective communicator means.

KGS189 | 5 Reasons Why Emotelligence Is The Most Critical Skill Needed To Successfully Rebound From Covid19 Pandemic by Kingsley Grant
+++ IT'S EMOTELLIGENCE TIME +++ There was and maybe still is, a popular commercial that has to do with a beer, which I won't mention here because I'm not being paid to promote them. The popular phrase would go like this: "It's (name of the beer) Time!" The point of the commercial was that this beer is what you need for special times. We are in special times because of Covid19, wouldn't you say? It's unprecedented.  There is so much we don't know and will not know anytime soon. It's almost, "learn as you go." However, there is one thing you cannot afford to "learn as you go" when it comes to successfully rebounding from this pandemic. It's the skill of emotelligence. Maybe you've never heard this word before, or maybe you have. Either way, you've got to listen to this episode of The Kingsley Grant Show as I share the 5 Reasons Why Emotelligence Is The Most Critical Skill Needed To Successfully Rebound From Covid19 Pandemic.

KGS188 | Why The Best Leaders Use Coaching To Inspire People To Do Great Work And How You Can Too by Sarah Wirth and Kingsley Grant
+++ MORE TO IT +++ Have you ever read or listened to a story and felt there was more to it than what you read or heard? When I first heard and read about coaching, I really thought that it wasn't for me.  Actually, I didn't see the purpose of it. The only reference I had of coaching, was in the area of sports.  Fast forward to today. I now wonder how can a person who aspires for greatness, do without a coach. Think about the likes of Tiger Woods, Lebron James, the late Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and so many others. There is one thing that is true of all these people ... they all had coaches. In this episode, our guest - Sarah Wirth, discusses how leaders can become more effective at leading when they choose the coaching path to help their team be more successful.  ++++++++++++++++++ Who is Sarah Wirth? SARAH WIRTH is the President of EcSell Institute, the world's first and only organization to measure and quantify leadership effectiveness. She is considered one of the world's foremost authorities in metric-based performance coaching and growth. Her book, The Coaching Effect, coauthored by EcSell Institute CEO Bill Eckstrom, helps leaders at all levels understand the necessity of challenging people out of their comfort zone to create high-growth organizations.

KGS187 | Amazon VP Quits A Toxic Work Environment During COVID19 Crisis And Shares These 5 Leadership Lessons by Kingsley Grant
+++ WHAT'S YOUR PRICE +++ What would you do if you stand to lose $1MM by quitting your job? What would you do if you would end up losing the best job you've had to date by quitting? Would you quit or would you stay? The bottom line is, what is your price? We all have a price. Given the right set of circumstances or opportunities, most of us will do things we would not do under normal circumstances. Am I right? In this episode, you will hear about an Amazon VP who quit his job that he loved - his best job yet - knowing he will more than likely lose out on a salary of about one million dollars pre-tax income.

KGS186 | How To Lead Like A Pro In Crisis Without Changing Who You Are by Melissa Lamson with Kingsley Grant
+++ LEAN ON ME +++ Musical artist Bill Withers penned and sung the widely popular song: "Lean On Me." Do you remember it? Here are some of the lyrics: "Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on" The message behind the song is that at one point in your life, you're gonna need someone to lean on. This could not be more true than in times of crisis.  Leaders have a golden opportunity to shine as they become that person their people can lean on.  Unfortunately, some leaders won't be chosen by their people because they do not find them trustworthy to lean on. In this episode, our guest Melissa Lamson, shares with us how leaders can become better at making themselves dependable so that their people will lean on them. +++++++++++++++ Melissa Lamson is the CEO of Lamson Consulting.

KGS185 | Create A Results Oriented Work Environment That Successfully Achieves The Objectives Of The Organization by Kevin Gyolai and Kingsley Grant
+++ RESULTS PLEASE +++ Have you ever been to the doctor and he or she sent you to do some blood work to rule out some concerns? If you've done that, how quickly do you want the results? A year later? A month later? Or as soon as possible (ASAP)? If you are like me, which I believe you are, you want it ASAP.  Who wants to wait for any unnecessary length of time? This is becoming more of a trend in the area of work where employers are looking for people that can get them the result they are looking for. And it's understandable. Therefore, becoming a person who delivers results makes you more of an attractive candidate for companies looking to hire people.  However, not everyone is capable of creating a Results-Only Work Environment satisfactorily. In this episode, our guest Kevin Gyolai takes us behind the scenes and helps us understand how to best do so plus a 30-day roadmap. +++++++++++++++++++ Who is Kevin Gyolai?

KGS184 | Manage Your Emotions Now Or Face The Consequences Later Says World Leading Expert On Facial Coding Dr Dan Hill with Kingsley Grant
+++ OR ELSE +++ In what context do you remember first hearing these words - or else? My first introduction to those words was through my parents especially my dad. It was a warning; a threat. But it was not one that my siblings or I  wanted to know what it meant. We knew.  It was where our butt and a belt coincided.  You too? So now, when I use these words, that's the image I have in my mind; one of pain.  This pain is not exclusive to my situation. Many leaders today are feeling the "pain" of simply not managing their emotions well. It is happening the world over. In this episode, our guest Dr. Dan Hill - a leading expert on facial coding /expressions driven by emotions, helps us understand how to best avoid letting our emotions rule the day. Two of the emotions that he highlights among others are anger and happiness. ++++++++++++++++++++ Who is Dr. Dan HIll? Dr. DAN HILL is the founder and president of Sensory Logic, Inc, which pioneered the use of facial coding in business in order to capture and quantify emotional dynamics. The company has done work for over 50% of the world's top 100 B2C companies and has 7 U.S. patents related to facial coding scoring techniques.

KGS183 | 5 Proven Keys to Lead a High-Performing Remote Work Force During and After A Crisis by Kingsley Grant
+++ SHOW UP +++ Have you ever been pleasantly surprised by someone's behavior? Could it be that that person was only waiting for the chance to show how capable they truly were given the chance? It has happened to me on many occasions. When I saw or heard what the person in question did or said, I was blown away. I underestimated them.  This is what I believe is happening across the world with people being asked to work remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic. Employees are stepping up their game because they are not in an environment where they were feeling suffocated and where they weren't given the chance to show what they were truly capable of. It's amazing what people can do when the "shackles" have been lifted. In this episode, you'll discover how to ride this wave, making the experience more meaningful, and still, feel like you have a team that you are leading. It could easily spiral into one-man shows, which you don't want to happen.

KGS182 | How To Make Tough Decisions During A Crisis That Will Have Your People Applaud And Thank You Afterwards with Dr Anuj Shah and Kingsley Grant
+++ IT'S TOUGH +++ Do you recall the toughest decision you ever had to make? How did it go? Did it work out as you hoped? Making decisions can sometimes be tough and tricky.  You just don't know how it will end up. This is especially true when dealing with other people whom you have no control over. They might not react to your decision as you hope they would.  Decision making can be nerve-racking for some people.  They are just not good at making decisions much less tough ones.  The decision-making process becomes more complicated during times of high stress or during times of crisis. In this episode, cardiologist Dr. Anuj Shah shares how to make tough decisions framed by empathy and how it is also good for the "heart." +++++++++++++++++++++++ Who is Dr. Anuj Shah? DR.

KGS181 - How To Build A Strong Team And Remain That Way Even Through And After A Crisis with Sherrine Washington and Kingsley Grant
+++ KEEP IT THAT WAY +++ The stakes are higher to keep things as normal as possible when you are dealing with circumstances outside of your control. Take for example the coronavirus virus aka COVID-19. How do you keep what you've built over time the same or even improve on it when we are dealing with a pandemic; a crisis? I believe the same way we would when we experience any other kind of crisis.  A crisis is a crisis. The skills used in one can be used in another. The difference is how you adapt. In this episode, our guest - Sherrine Washington - shares with us how to do so. One of the many things she shared is that you must have the GRIT not to QUIT. Quitting is not an option. +++++++++++++++ Who is SHERRINE WASHINGTON? Sherrine is a Master Sales Coach & Trainer and Founder of Real Talk Sales Consulting.

KGS180 | Remote Work: Why Some Leaders Succeed At Leading Virtual Teams And Others Don't with Randy McNeely and Kingsley Grant
+++ CLOSE THE GAP +++ Do you wish at times to be close to someone or others but where you are located makes it almost impossible? How do you feel when you are not able to do so? Moving to the United States by myself was a challenge for me in many ways. One of those ways was longing at times to be with my family and could not because of where I was and where they were. It was not pleasant, to say the least. My only methods of communication were by phone and by mail. Forget about being able to see the face of your loved ones. Thank God this has changed, yet there are still challenges. This is especially true when leaders are trying to lead their teams remotely.  How do you accomplish that task successfully? What's the secret? In this episode of The Kingsley Grant Show, our guest - Randy McNeely - shares some insights as to how to do so, in practical ways. The good news is that what he shares works for non-remote settings as well. Take a listen. +++++++++++++++++++++ Who is Randy McNeely?

+++ TRULY HEARTFELT +++ Have you ever heard something and one of your reactions were, "that was truly heartfelt?" For me, this happens most times at a funeral. When someone shares something from their heart about a loved one - family or friend - you know it was from their heart. There is something about the delivery and the content that just feels that way. Have you ever experienced anything like that? What about in the workplace? Have you ever had a leader share a heartfelt message that instantly connects you with them?

KGS177 | 3 Proven Skills Of Great Leaders During Times Of Change Which One Are You Lacking by Kingsley Grant
+++ LEADING TO LAND +++ Some leaders tend to focus on the process during times of crisis but fail to focus on the outcome. "Focusing on process" kind of leadership is one that only sees what's going on around them. It's very short-sighted, to say the least. It becomes an either/or for them. They are unable to see a both/and scenario. The leaders who are able to "focus on the outcome" are those who are looking for a "better tomorrow." They take into consideration both the "landing" and what happens thereafter. It's not that they ignore or deny what's happening around them, but they are able to do both. They look at "tomorrow" to inform them how they should proceed today. Not all leaders are skilled and that is why not all leaders are great leaders. The good news is that leaders who are determined to become great leaders can learn to do this. It is a learned behavior or skill. In this episode, you will discover the 3 Proven Skills of Great Leaders that they use to lead their people during times of change or crisis and how they can be both process and outcome-focused.

KGS176 | Why Giving Frequent Feedback And Credit To Your Team Reduces Toxicity Within The Work Environment with Patrick Van Gorder and Kingsley Grant
+++ FREELY GIVE +++ But wait there is more ... Not everything that is free ends up being helpful. Sometimes it can be downright hurtful. Life is filled with feedback.  Relationships are filled with feedback. A conversation is filled with feedback. However, have you been hurt by the "feedback" you received from someone? Some will call it constructive criticism. What is constructive about it when you are left in shreds? This happens a lot in the workplace.  Feedback, when intended to help, is delivered carefully and with heart.  We all need feedback but not all feedback is helpful. Would you agree?

KGS175 | New Leader Q&A: How Do I Succeed As A New Leader Even When I Do Not Have Adequate Preparation by Kingsley Grant
+++ SET UP FOR FAILURE +++ During the era of Usain Bolt, if someone had offered me a $1,000,000 to race against him in the Olympics, they would not really care about my self-esteem. I would say they're intent was to humiliate and embarrass me in front of the world. Wouldn't you agree? Now, don't agree so quickly. You could have taken your time to agree. [smile] It would be safe to say that's a set up for failure. There was no way I was going to beat him UNLESS he faked it and allowed me to do it to save face and to get a kick-back. That's what happens when people are given a leadership role without proper preparation. The sad part it happens more often than not even when it is not intentional. In this episode, you will hear one leader asking how to still succeed as a leader even when they feel like they haven't gotten adequate preparation.

KGS174 | Manager Fired For Believing The Customer Is Always Right And Why I Agree With The Decision by Kingsley Grant
+++ EMANCIPATE YOURSELF +++ Have you ever had one of those moments where it seems like out of nowhere, a song comes to your mind that you've not heard or thought of in quite some time? Recently, I've been having some of those moments.  Today, was one of those times. As I prepared this episode of The Kingsley Grant Show, the song by the late Bob Marley - Redemption Song - came to my mind. And why it did ... You'll see why when you listen to this episode and you'll also see the connection. In this episode, I shared about an Olive Garden manager who was fired because of a "mental slavery belief" that ought to be revisited. I used "mental slavery" because that's the term Bob Marley used. You'll have to listen to get the feel of it all. I cannot adequately put it in words here.

KGS173 | Why Leaders Must Address The Elephant in The Room Called Toxicity Before Adding More Leadership Training with Kingsley Grant
+++ ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM +++ According to Wikipedia, the term "elephant in the room" is a metaphor used to describe "an important or enormous topic, problem, or risk that is obvious or that everyone knows about but no one mentions or wants to discuss because it makes at least some of them uncomfortable or is personally, socially, or politically embarrassing, controversial, inflammatory, or dangerous" This definition captures the topic of toxicity in the workplace. It's one of those topics that is going unchecked or overlooked for one reason or another. In this episode, I share 3 reasons why this conversation is not taking place and what needs to be done. The "business as usual" approach to leadership training where the focus is more on organizational, time management, and leadership skills than toxicity, is no longer sufficient. Making detoxing a toxic work environment has to be a mandatory part of any leadership training. It has to be the priority or else it's an exercise in futility; money down the drain.

+++ THE BIG PICTURE +++ Have you ever heard someone say, "look at the bigger picture?" Have you said it in a conversation?

In this episode, you are going to hear a conversation with our guest - Kim Bohr - who will help us understand how best to do so. She believes that by looking at or helping people see the bigger picture, is one of the best ways to turn around toxic work environments. ++++++++++++++++++ Who is KIM BOHR?

When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it's almost always due to personal growth." ~ John C. Maxwell [PAUSE] Are you growing?

KGS167 | Behind The Scenes: Get Real Stories From Real People Experiencing Toxic Work Environments With Kingsley Grant
+++ KEEPING IT REAL +++ One of the reasons why shows that take you behind the scenes such as reality shows do well, it's because we are able to connect for the most part with what we see and hear. Another reason is our curious nature. We are voyeuristic (nosy) in nature.  This is not a bad thing. I think it helps us with a better understanding of what we see and hear. And yes, I know that many of these shows are scripted for the audience. But the point is, we still like to know. In this episode, the stage is being set for future episodes that will have similar effects. What you'll hear: why the "behind the scenes" perspective an invitation being given to people who want to share their story while remaining anonymous the role of confidentiality the format of this kind of show how we're planning to produce the show Take a listen and if you're interested to come on the show to tell your story and remain anonymous, you can Direct Message me through my social media platforms @kingsleygrant or complete the short contact form at www.kingsleygrant.com/connect.

+++ MS. TAKES +++ Have you ever made a mistake?  If you haven't, welcome to the "liars club." (Just kidding) Albert Einstein said, "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." This might be another reason you would not raise your hands to have made a mistake. But, to the rest of us who have made mistakes, how do you frame it when it happens? Do you see it as "the end of the world?" Maybe not that extreme, but do you call yourself names or even "kick" yourself?

Okay.  In this episode, our guest - Stephen Key, will break that down for us and give us a better way of seeing and thinking about mistakes. +++++++++++++++++ Who is STEPHEN KEY?

KGS165 | Building Ideas Together Is One Critical Way To Reduce Toxicity Within A Toxic Work Environment
+++ WHOSE IDEA IS IT +++ There's a show that I used to watch entitled: Whose line is it anyway?" I'm not sure if you ever watched or heard of it.  But the very title make it sounds that someone is responsible for or owns a certain line in the show. It would become apparent when each actor is giving a role that they had to use improv and communicate their understanding of what that line meant to them. However, they did this with the help of others. Somehow they were able to pull off a skit that for the most part, seemed as if they had some rehearsal done, when in fact they never did. They built and pieced the ideas together and were all credited for the success of the show.  Imagine, if leaders could use a similar approach to take an idea and build it out together with their team.  In this episode, our guest - Jeff Shechter, helped us understand how building ideas together can work towards reducing toxicity within a toxic work environment. Who is JEFF SHECHTER? +++++++++++++++++++++++ Jeff started his first business right out of college, and over the years, have developed sales and marketing strategies that have worked well across many industries. He’s been involved in numerous business ventures. Jeff’s love for real estate investing began in the 1980s when he began flipping homes that he lived in. Since those early days of torn up kitchens and bathrooms, he’s bought and sold many properties, and he’s an active investor to this day. He’s been blessed to have coached hundreds of business owners, and thrive on helping people realize their full potential…not just in business, but in all aspects of life! +++++++++++++++++++++++ Please share this episode with one other person and leave a comment on the platform through which you listen to this show and/or on social media.

[SPECIAL] KGS163 | 5 Reasons Nancy Pelosi Ripping State Of The Union Speech Was A Major Leadership Mistake with Kingsley Grant
+++ TEACHABLE MOMENTS +++ Life hands us a lot of teachable moments.  We miss many of them because of our knee-jerk reactions. Most times we miss them because we overreact or under-react. We don't take time to evaluate what is going on to see what lessons could we learn. Life is learning and every day, we can learn something if we simply look for them. I'm the first to admit that it is not easy. I've fallen prey to moments that I've missed because of my over or under-reaction. How about you? We had one of those moments at the State of the Union address by the president of the United States - Donald Trump. At the end of his speech, the leader of the House - Nancy Pelosi, tore up the speech that was for the house records. There have been many on both sides of the aisle who have displayed strong feelings for or against what she did. In this episode, you will hear 5 reasons why what Speaker Pelosi did, was a "yuge" or a major leadership mistake. This mistake will be overlooked if your reaction is driven primarily by emotions and/or party loyalty. Let's put the emotions and party loyalty aside for a minute and see if what is shared in this episode is fair and reasonable.

+++ SALES MAKEOVER +++ In the past, I've often said: "I'm not a salesperson." And the reason I so quickly utter those words is simply not to be likened to that "sleazy" salesperson. You know that kind, don't you? Me too! My association with sales is that of being pressured. I'm not comfortable with that. Thankfully I've had a makeover of my thoughts on what sales and selling is all about. Every day, each one of us is selling something: an idea, our truth, our story, our excuse, etc. We want to convince someone of something. That is sales in a nutshell.

KGS155 | How To Turn Around A Toxic Work Environment Simply By Managing Your Stress And The Stress Of Those Around You by Kingsley Grant
+++ SHRINK MY BRAIN +++ Research has shown that when we are exposed to continued stress, the volume of grey matter in areas of our brain responsible for self-control, decreases. You could say our brain shrinks. The more this happens, the more toxicity builds up in our lives, which eventually spills over within the work environment and onto the people we lead. When leaders are under a load of stress they are more prone to say or do things that can cause friction, misunderstandings, and hurt. This is a recipe for a toxic work environment. The good news is that stress can be managed and when managed can turn around a toxic workplace. The question is how.

KGS153 | 4 Behaviors All Good Leaders Have In Common Which One Are You Missing with Former Royal Marine Roderic Yapp and Kingsley Grant
+++ LOOK AND SEE +++ There's a saying that I often quote to some of my clients as I help them with self-awareness, that goes like this: "Your actions speak so loud, they can't hear what you are saying." Have you ever heard that before? I find that sometimes some leaders wonder why their people aren't "listening" to them. They are perplexed by it. However, when you speak with some of the people they are leading or have the leader do a 360-assessment, it becomes apparent why. The feedback makes it clear that the leader's behavior doesn't match what he or she is saying. It's out of sync. How then do these leaders change the messaging of their people? In this episode, our guest - Former Royal Marine Roderic Yapp - discusses 4 behaviors that strong and good leaders have in common. He suggests that if a leader wants to be seen as a good leader, they will adopt these 4 behaviors. What are they? Take a listen to find out. +++++++++++++++++ Who is RODERIC YAPP? Roderic is an experienced speaker, facilitator, and coach who specializes in developing leaders by changing the way people think and behave. A former Royal Marines Officer, Yapp was fortunate enough to lead Marines on operations around the world. One of the many highlights of his career includes the recapture of the 55,000-ton MV Montecristo from pirate control in 2011, as part of a NATO counter-piracy task force off the Somali coast. In 2015, he founded Leadership Forces which focusses on developing leaders within organizations. His clients include HSBC, Deloitte, Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls Royce, and Nato. +++++++++++++++++ Please share this episode with one other person and leave a comment on the platform through which you listen to this show and/or on social media.

KGS152 | Social Responsibility Enacted By CEOs And Other Leaders Without Consensus Could Be A Big Mistake And Seen As CEO Activism with Kristen Ruby and Kingsley Grant
+++ YOU DON'T SPEAK FOR ME +++ Have you ever been in a situation where someone makes a statement and makes it seem like you are in agreement with them? They'll use the plural "we" rather than I. For example, they might say, "We all think" or "we believe" or "we don't agree with ..." and so on. When that happens, what do you do? Sometimes you kind of go along to not embarrass them. I've done that. And it also all depends on who is making that statement. Right? You won't correct them, especially in public if it is someone who has power over you.  When my dad was alive, I dare not say anything.  These situations can be awkward. But what do you do when your boss or owner of the company at which you work makes public statements on sensitive issues with which you disagree? Let's take this one step further. Should they be doing that? You may say, "Well, it's their company or they are the boss, so they can do whatever they want to do." And you are right, but is it a good move on their part? In this episode, our guest - Kristen Ruby - will take this topic on head-on and share with you some thoughts that you may agree with. I can tell you this, it helped me put in words some of my own thoughts on the matter. ++++++++++++++ Who is KRISTEN RUBY? Kris Ruby is the CEO of Ruby Media Group. She is a National Television Commentator on topics that are Social Media related, PR and Marketing to name a few. She is also an astute Political Commentator.

KGS149 | Embracing An Employee Turnover Mindset Is The Secret To Attracting and Retaining Your Best Employees with Zack Thomas and Kingsley Grant
+++ ON IT'S HEAD +++ Have you ever heard the term "turn it on its head?" What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear that phrase? For me, it's a little boy being help upside down with his or her head to the ground and I think, "wow, they've been turned upside down." Some kids love this. They'll be laughing-their-heads-off thinking it is so funny until the blood flushes their face. It's unfortunate that we can no longer look at something like that and think it's all being done in jest. Strange things. Strange people. However, I like to see when an idea that we've held onto for so long, is completely revamped and replaced by better ideas. Would it be true for you as well? In this episode, you'll hear how one business owner and leader, our guest Zack Thomas, has taken the term "employee turnover" and turn it around from being something one fears, to something one plans towards. You'll have to listen to hear what it is I mean by saying that. +++++++++++++++++++ ZACK THOMAS' BIO: He is an entrepreneur, published author, coach, and speaker. As a West Point graduate, Zach served his country as an Airborne Ranger Infantry Officer before launching multiple successful companies.

KGS147 | Why Smart Leaders Get Better Results Using Enrollment As A Complementary Onboarding Process with Nicole Jansen and Kingsley Grant
+++ ENROLLMENT IS A STRATEGY +++ How often have you seen a sign like this: Open For Enrollment? I tend to see it a lot during the Summertime when kids are out of school and businesses are competing to get a jump on kids' summer activities. Getting the kids in and as many as they can is the business' objectives. No kids, no business. Many of these businesses use a lot of incentives to get them to sign up early. This strategy is one that leaders need to adopt when it comes to getting their people to have an early buy-in to the vision and mission of the organization. What if leaders "enrolled" their people into the early stages of planning? What if they approached their leadership from a bottom-up rather than a top-down position? What if? In this episode, our guest Nicole Jansen dives into a concept called Enrollment that provides answers to these questions and more. ++++++++++++++++++ Who is Nicole Jansen?
