Our first awareness of intelligence comes during the schooling process where our intelligence is graded over and over.  Our minds develop technical skills, which we hone with advanced education and rely on as we secure our first jobs, and advance through our career. This time of year, I’m often flooded with conversations about how so-and-so [...]

This book is fascinating to read in the references of addiction as it applies to technology. One fact (and I’ll save the rest for you to discover yourself): “70% of office emails are read within 6 seconds of arriving. It takes up to 25 minutes to re-immerse yourself in a project.”  This book changed my approach [...]

Results or Behavior?

Accountability has become an overused buzzword.  I hear it as a mechanism to measure performance - are we accountable to our goal? I hear it as a feedback tool - I expected you to achieve/solve/develop that. I'd like you to consider how accountability bifurcates - it's about results and behavior. While we are comfortable measuring the result, are we equally [...]

Killing Your Culture (with Kindness)

Culture is that thing growing in your petri dish, aka your organization, whether or not you are investing in it. We measure culture at the organization level, looking at the top leaders to shape and drive the values that are desired for success. Recently there has been much more attention at developing values and strategic [...]

DO LEAD | Les McKeown

Les has written a very compact book on building leadership through his defined four styles: Visionary, Operator, Processor and Synergist. What's fascinating is to apply these styles to the growth cycle of my business and consider where I need to grow next to propel my business forward. If you are focused on your business, you [...]

Olympic Measures

I’m not sure if it happens to anyone else, but it sure does happen to me. The Olympics have left a sense of hope and excitement in my soul…again. I remember when they shifted the games to every two years, essentially toggling between summer and winter in a way that provides a more consistent appearance [...]

Power of Full Engagement | Jim Loehr & Tony Schwartz

Together Is Better | Simon Sinek

I really enjoyed Simon Sinek’s book, Start with Why, which I’ve already mentioned here. This book came from a friend and is a lovely place of inspiration (Thanks Kasia!) and good questions to contemplate. Here are the contemplations I’m sitting with as I plan for 2018: Chasing the dream, not the competition. If a challenge [...]

Hey Goalie! Let’s Score…

A Harvard Business study revealed that 14% of people who have goals are 10 times more successful than those without goals. AND, the 3% with written goals are 3 times more successful than the 14% with unwritten goals. We have a determination, some would call a resolution at this time of year.  I’ll do better [...]

Entrance and Exit

The truth about career paths is that you enter….and you exit. As the saying goes – life is in the dots. During those “dot” years an important consideration is succession planning, yet very few professionals pause to create intentional paths to their own successors. The legal industry is struggling right alongside so many others, with [...]
