Talk Radio Strategy --- C-Virus Panic ---- A Time to Say "No"

*Talk Radio News from Talkers Magazine

WASHINGTON, DC — Schools and colleges are shutting down, games-not-canceled are played in empty arenas, some store shelves are bare, and people are walking around wearing surgical masks. St. Patrick's Day parades were canceled in Ireland! Ireland! While we fear a deadly respiratory disease for which there is no vaccine, 



Coronavirus is also a MENTAL health threat. Because the pandemic story is nearer the beginning than the end, "wash your hands" now sounds old and condescending, and remaining political talk media deniers validate a tired caricature. At this stage, news-your-listeners-can-use most is coping advice.

Recommendation: As I did on my TV show last week, interview a psychotherapist. Suggested questions: • How have changes in life's routine in the last month upset the people you counsel? • How can parents talk about this with their children? • Getting through this short-term is one thing. But now the stock market is a scary rollercoaster; and for several years, economists have been warning that we're overdue for a recession. Are you hearing "401-K anxiety" or other longer-term "future fear?" • We're getting emails from airlines and other businesses we patronize, detailing proactive steps they're taking to disinfect, etc. How much do these assurances help? • We're a social culture. When we go to a game, we cheer the team alongside other fans wearing matching jerseys. Donald Trump packs arenas for his rallies. And in troubled times, when our FAITH gives us strength, places of worship might close! How hurtful would it be not-to-assemble? • About "cabin fever"

As more Americans self-quarantine, they're stocking up on THINGS. How can we prepare EMOTIONALLY to be holed-up at home for a couple weeks? • Coronavirus coverage is relentless. It is what the news media call "a great story," because it is so vital and changing so rapidly. Is there emotional value in taking an occasional "news sabbatical?" Repurpose the aircheck as a "Coping With Coronavirus" podcast. If your shrink can stick around after the interview for caller Q+A, "the doctor is in, the meter is off" If not, invite callers' stories. They have 'em. And, as Dr. Laura's success demonstrated when talk radio hit its stride 20+ years ago, eavesdropping on callers' stories is powerfully seductive.

C-Virus Panic Allows Us to Clear Clutter & Organize-UP: Downtime Means Digging into Life's Files, House & Office for a New Start

Go to work, drop off kids, get dinner, go shopping, sit in traffic, do laundry, take kids, cook food, clean up sleep, go to work and then do it all again and again and again ...sound familiar? When is there time to tackle all the messy situations we procrastinate about or which magically appear in a never-ending parade of new complications and problems?

All too often there isn't enough. With safety dictating millions stay close or not leave home, and businesses short staffed because of slow downs, now is the time to backfill and "Get 'er done" Barbara Hemphill, organizing expert and author of upcoming The Clutter Crisis: How Fear, Greed, and Overwhelm are Crippling America!, believes this virus crisis has given "Americans the rare opportunity to transform their personal and business lives by stepping back to eliminate the clutter and taken charge of their lives.

This is not the time to hide in the closet, but to empty and re-organize it. Computer files, email overwhelm, proposals for new or existing business plans, bulging files clogging the back of our minds all ready to get blown out to allow us, once this passes, open field running for the great and important things in life" Thirty years ago Hemphill's first book, Taming the Paper Tiger, set her on a path into the field of "organizational protocols" and numerous best-sellers, national media appearances and creating successful programs.

Under the umbrella of the Productive Environment Institute she embraces new technologies to offer live webinars in conjunction with programs such as Office Transformation Quickstart and Productivity on Demand for individuals or Productive Environment Day and 7 Information Management Questions for companies. On the home page of PEI website is offered a Productive Environment Score to gauge the current situation and measure progress. For the purposes of the current societal crisis, Hemphill believes people can take advantage of isolation time to take stock, regroup, organize and move forward with PEI's 90-Day Less Clutter More Life Virtual Mastermind. In just 10 weeks, you will have a de-cluttering success story!

A Time to Say "No" and Profit From It

What can three-year-old's teach us that we should use and take seriously? Of course, it's that we need to say "no" more often. Reading that you may be thinking I'm referring to the #MeToo movement, but I'm not. In our daily lives, there is definitely a place for that strong statement that is contained in only two letters and they are "n" and "o" and you need them. The current situation all over the world with regard to the coronavirus is shaking up the way we live, work and even think. One thing to incorporate into that mix is that it's not in anyone's best interest to always agree to whatever request is made of us. There are times for responding in the affirmative and times for politely, but firmly disagreeing with the request. Thinking over the current health dilemma, there should have been more disagreements than agreements and we might have avoided a health and financial crisis. Give that some thought. Anyone working in a corporation that is on the track to being successful knows the value of "no" when it comes to planning and the actual working business plan. The team member who always wants to please and never sees there are negatives in almost any plan isn't a good team member at all. These "yes men and women" may make some temporary capital with an insecure manager, but it's not a success plan for their future careers or their business. How to Say "No" Disagreeing with anything is a delicate balance that might be seen as a ballet; graceful yet steely determined. The manner in which you do it is the secret to using it effectively. Take a page from the workbooks of therapists here. When a therapist disagrees with something a client has said, they don't come on with a full head of steam. Instead, they approach it with "Tell me a bit more about how you came to that (decision, plan, thought, etc.)"
