Who’s deadline is it anyway?

December 14th, 2022|Personal Development|

There are real deadlines at work and in life: Projects need to be launched Registrations have hard dates Tasks have to be completed Many times, though, we are operating from false deadlines we have set for ourselves. Do our deadlines have more flexibility than we realize? A client of mine had a choice: she had 30 minutes before her next

  • praise

Are you hooked on praise?

December 12th, 2022|Personal Development|

I recently wrote a blog about taking in constructive feedback as information, similar to a GPS. This information can help us understand if we strayed from our path and how we can navigate our way back to it. Constructive criticism can be challenging for many people as we unconsciously tie many things to our identity, including our jobs. We often need

Managing What Your Team Needs

December 9th, 2022|Leadership Development|

It's not all about you We are very clear on what we need from our managers regarding direction, support, mentorship, recognition, etc. When we become people managers, we can make the misstep of managing through the lens of what we need. For example, I don't need a lot of recognition, so I don't provide much recognition to my team. But on the

Is the Timing Right?

December 7th, 2022|Leadership Development|

Timing is everything I worked with a client looking to have a more significant impact as a leader. We identified a few blind spots and some ways to shift behaviors. For example, regarding supplemental reading, he chose a book he wanted to read during the coaching program. It was a book that challenged some deeply held beliefs about how he

Celebrate You

December 1st, 2022|Personal Development|

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! Celebrate more

Is your Message Being Delivered?

November 22nd, 2022|Leadership Development|

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 had

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. They can get frustrated, though, when it’s not as easy to determine their areas for development. I often get asked, “Amy, why is it so easy to help strengthen the development skills of others than it is for
