Celebrate You

We often start the year with stated or unstated goals or intentions of what we want to accomplish or how we want to develop within that year. While we may measure our progress throughout the year, most people don't spend a lot of time celebrating that progress. Accomplishing your goals, big or small, should always be a celebration!

Is your Message Being Delivered?

November 22nd, 2022|Leadership Development|

We Have you ever walked out of a meeting where you had to communicate some key/important/challenging message and felt great? Woo Hoo! Your message has been delivered! Job done. High-five. Until you see or hear that the individual behaviors are not aligned with the message. Now, you are confused, frustrated, or angry instead of congratulating yourself.   Twice this week, I

Noticing the Yellow Flags

November 17th, 2022|Personal Development|

Short-term stress We all experience stress. Short-term stress is not a bad thing. Think about an exciting project you were assigned to complete, but it required you to operate in a new way. This scenario brings stress, but it's short-term, motivating, and produces energy. This is what I like to call "Yellow Flags." Long-term stress Long-term stress, on the other

Overusing Your Strengths When Dealing with Your People

November 14th, 2022|Personal Development|

I've been talking to many clients lately about dealing with people's issues and overusing their strengths.  It made me reflect on my own struggles with my employees. I ran my companies leading with my heart. I often say that empathy is my superpower. Running a business needs a balance of head and heart (and wisdom). Leading from the heart has so many

Development Skills

November 11th, 2022|Leadership Development|

The leaders I work with enjoy mentoring and developing others. They help their team members operate from their strengths and identify areas for development.

Comparisons Do You No Favors

November 7th, 2022|Personal Development|

We are all humans. We tend to focus on those around us at every stage of our life, finding different comparisons. No matter how successful we get, we still have those human attributes that help us in our life and work and can lead us to get in our own way. Comparisons can be detrimental I was asked to step in and

Feedback is Like a GPS

November 4th, 2022|Personal Development|

The word “recalculating” makes me laugh. I remember family car trips in the past and hearing my Dad’s external car GPS announce the word “recalculating” when he missed a turn. It happened frequently and always made me smile. It was giving feedback that we simply did something wrong and needed to make a slight shift. Approaching feedback like a GPS

Expressing Gratitude

November 2nd, 2022|Personal Development|

My Dad didn't retire from his full-time job until he was 72. Even then, he kept his part-time CPA practice going. He really enjoyed working with his clients and even enjoyed learning the new tax laws each year.
