Flashbacks

It’s the holiday season again and there are many things happening anew that are a-old. Thinking about your year-end chaos and how listening creates impact is something I wrote about a few years back. As we look around us now, so much has changed in our world. And, although time is still ticking at the same pace, [...]

Goal Setting

Are you someone who sets goals? Written goals? According to this Forbes article, those with written goals are more likely to accomplish them. Yet many of us don’t have goals at all. How do you start? Most of us have heard of SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-measurable) as the recommended way to construct goals. I [...]

Collaborating and Conspiring

Our team focuses on our objectives, our processes, and our outcomes. We gather in meetings to check in on each other’s assignments in an around-the-room reporting style.

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 [...]

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 [...]
