FIND YOUR PASSION. 25 QUESTIONS YOU MUST ASK YOURSELF | Henri Junttila

I stumbled on this e-book as I was introducing myself to the Kindle app on my iPad. The questions are built for journaling, it’s a working guide to the life you want, not the life you have. So, as we turn to cooler weather, and move indoors while the light shifts earlier in the day, [...]

Raising Awareness

Self-awareness is the cornerstone of leadership, and plays a large part in advancing your career. Living in a 24/7 world, with incredible distractors all around, what can be done to raise the bar without taxing your time clock? What if we use the same concept that we approach employee evaluations with – start, stop, continue? [...]

Handling the Food

Years ago, when I was first entering the world of full time management, some words of advice were given to me that recently resurfaced in a client conversation: don't handle the food. The conversation all those years back was about establishing myself as a leader (at a young age) and that no matter how easy it might [...]

DARE TO LEAD | Brené Brown

“Our ability to be daring leaders will never be greater than our capacity for vulnerability.” This is Ms. Brown’s sixth book, and it’s another excellent read if you are interested in the research that supports vulnerability. In this installment, Brené brings forward the necessity of authenticity, vulnerability, and safe containers. Two points that particularly caused [...]

Simple Doesn’t Mean Easy

Are you the type of person to strike up a conversation with a stranger on an airplane? If so, then I’m not your favorite seatmate. Most often you’ll find me head down in my laptop working on an article like this one or preparing content for an upcoming speaking or training program. Recently, however, I [...]

I Can’t…

Worst sentence starter ever! And how often does it start your sentences? I’m returning from my annual adventures at the USA Volleyball Adult National Championships where I competed with a new group of women. I begin training my body in January, because when the tournament becomes the most challenging (in the medal rounds), I want [...]

THE POWER OF HABIT | Charles Duhigg

“Habits are technically defined as: the choices that all of us deliberately make at some point, and then stop thinking about but continue doing, often every day.” That statement was enough for me to be hooked on this book. Mr. Duhigg walks us through the steps to change a habit and also ones to build [...]

Duty or Desire?

Duty or desire…I’m not sure this is the spectrum.  And, the more I read about employee engagement the more I wonder about it. Couple that with the complexity of character strength and personal values and the pieces of the puzzle grow. Do you operate from duty or desire? When you show up at your place [...]

Elephant Droppings

Springtime has sprung, and the zoo is filled with babies. I love the zoo, and all the ways animal behavior and human behavior aren’t that far apart. Recently I walked through the elephant exhibit and noticed how fascinated we are with elephants pooping. Yes, I said it. Elephants consume between 100 and 125 pounds of [...]
