Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 31 | When CEOs Lack Empathy

If you work for a boss, manager, CEO or anyone above you that lacks empathy, your life will be miserable. In today’s interview, a CEO by the name of Graham says “if you’re not here at work, you don’t get paid” — indicating that ‘sick leave with pay’ is something he doesn’t impose. 

So, when funerals come, emergencies soar, COVID happens, he’s the type of CEO that will not give you a paid day off = lack of empathy. These people you should NEVER work for, so in today’s podcast, it’s going to be a passionate-filled tirade on these people who lack the number one quality in human existence.

When we think about the population getting poorer, people spending their time online, living longer, dying partnerships (or growing), and other trends….they change quite often.  In today’s podcast, we discuss a wide range of trends in different countries.

Are you aware of what you do throughout your day? How much time is wasted at specific times? How about what you think about? On your journey to work, in the morning, or even in front of the TV?

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6 | Sales | Mini-series Finale

We’re finally here! It’s the end of the “Sales” mini-podcast that had begun at the exact same time as season 6. Although Season 6 is still a few months away from finishing, these mini-series are the next big step in developing you as a whole — and most specifically, the purpose behind it.

In today’s final podcast is a summary of what had been talked about the past couple of weeks, as well as a glimpse into the new mini-series that will be making its debut Friday, the day after I bring on an amazing teacher from Jordan. In saying that, it’s a sweet ending to a great mini-series.

Arsenio’s ESL Podcast | Personal Development | How to Develop a Plan to Learn Anything

Here’s another personal development special for you. This is unbelievably important for EVERYONE around the world.  Too often we become reactive with our days.

Coming up with a development plan and putting it into a calendar. In today’s podcast, I discuss just how you can do that.

During trying times, such as what we’re going through right now in the world, do you believe it’s easier to find new customers or easier to retain customers you already have? Sometimes we look to expand our services to a broader group, but then we forget about our existing customers and relationships deteriorate. If it’s a customer who buys cakes from you every fortnight, or someone who comes to you for coaching services. Building those relationships –and not making it seem like it’s all about the money — is unbelievably important. Let’s get into it!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 18 | In-Company Interviews: Pitching, Closing, Noun Phrases

Welcome back to another interview session! We have the usuals today: Lisa, Robert, Phil, and Wiktor who talk about pitching, knowing your product inside and out, knowing your customer’s needs, and how detrimental it could be in terms of promising your customers an outcome,

To be honest, here in Thailand, lots of language centers love to super-impose on advertisements “Guaranteed 7.5 IELTS!” This is a marketing scheme, but if that had been in America, they could be sued for false advertisement.

In saying that, I never promise anyone anything. What do I do instead? Tune into the podcast!

{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 10 | Workplace Scenario B: How to Get New Employees Started

Here’s a 4-step process to getting new people started in the workplace. Because people have a tendency of shoulder-shrugging people’s first day at work, this could be extremely problematic for most people in the world because studies have shown that the first day of work will show how long an employee actually stays at that specific job. So, if you have a very lousy welcoming, more than likely you won’t stay there long. I’m a great testament to that, too. The worst the first day is, the quicker I quit. This is in three countries around the world, too. So, it’s time to figure out how organization can help potential employees’ future and development.

Self-scoring 7 Habits Assessment | The Emotional Bank Account

Let’s get into scoring ourselves on a scale of 1-6 to see where we rank in these following areas. 

  • I show kindness and consideration to others
  • I keep promises and honor commitments
  • I do not speak negatively about others when they are present. 

Look at your life. In what ways do you show kindness and consideration to others? I’m very quick to think on my feet. It’s all a toss-up. I know that deep down inside, I’m a gorgeous soul, but when it comes to helping women in this country, it’s hit or miss.

In the morning, I helped a woman by getting off the treadmill, walking over to hers and turned it on for her (she didn’t know how to turn it on). She said thank you, and that was an amazing moment because the inner voice within me was like, “oh, look at you!” I quickly silenced him by saying “shut the f*** up.”

However, in the evening, you have a tendency of having hi-so (women who think they’re s*** don’t stink) walk in the lobby area and this lady knew i was behind her when we were both entering the lobby area of my condo. However, she opened the door only for her without giving me any leeway. So, not to get back at her, but I quickly went to the elevator and noticed that there was one at the bottom. Sure, I could’ve been the bigger person and keep the elevator door open for her, just because she was just about 4 meters back, but FUCK YOU.

So, it’s a toss-up.

The other two bullet points are in the podcast down below!
