Eileen's Lesson

A friend recently told me a funny story. They were at a party, and there were two trays of dip side by side, one of clam and one of onion. Her husband entered the room and tripped on something, which caused him to fall forward.

Fortunately, the clam/onion dip broke his fall by having one hand land in each container. The room started laughing hysterically. One of the guys there asked, “What’s everyone laughing about?” and put a chip in the dip and then ate it. The lesson: if everyone is laughing, ask why before you eat the clam dip.

In business speak, learn to read the room. Famed business leader Marcus Lemonis has some tips on how to better read the room on his blog.

And if you want to learn how to better read your employees, why not contact The HR Team.

3 Powerful Business Lessons I Learned from a Triathlon

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. You might have heard that achieving great leadership or reaching success is a marathon instead of a sprint.
