#18 – Traveling in a Group

Published on March 13, 2019 Written by

#18 Traveling in a Group  It’s interesting to travel in groups. You laugh, learn and morph with the ebb and flow of people as you move from event to event – especially during a retreat.   You can learn a lot about yourself and others in the nooks and crannies of your experience, both directly and… View Article

#17 – Rewriting the Story I’m at a women’s retreat offsite with a group of amazing women CEOs who are both colleagues and friends, and it’s International Women’s Day. We’re having incredible experiences we’ve worked hard for, learning with one another and from other powerful leaders we’ve invited into our circle. It’s an experience of… View Article

#16 – Earned Not Given We’re working out at our gym and I’m particularly sluggish today. It’s a rare state for me as I usually run on high energy and early mornings are some of my best hours of the day. I’m not resistant to the gym. I enjoy working out and being active. So… View Article

#15 – You Trained Them

#15 You Trained Them We complain all the time about how others behave. Our family, friends, employees, co-workers, those serving us, even other drivers. The list is endless really, it can extend to celebrities, politicians and other influencers. Those people we are often unable to directly influence, but we complain nonetheless. It’s interesting when you… View Article

#14 – When Did We Forget?

Published on March 7, 2019 Written by

#14 When Did We Forget? In several discussions in the past year, many people have disclosed their life seems to be happening to them, rather than their life occurring more by design. For most of these leaders, it’s a product of over-committing and adding all kinds of priorities without re-calibrating their lives. How often should… View Article

#13 – Creatures of Habit Most of us are creatures of habit. Beyond our twenties, we don’t make the time often enough to step back and assess how closely the life we’re living aligns with the life we imagine we should, would or could be living. Some questions to consider if you’re wondering: When is… View Article

#12 – Mistaking More for Better

Published on March 5, 2019 Written by

#12 – Mistaking More for Better When working with leadership teams, I’m often a broken record saying “less is more” and “do less better.” In the beginning of our work together, teams rarely heed this advice. After all, they are entrepreneurial leadership teams with fearless ambition, can-do attitudes and they are ultimately opportunists at heart…. View Article

Published on March 4, 2019 Written by

#11 The Mirror is a Great Place to Start I was recently at a quarterly EOS conference with my fellow implementers. We always share “AHAs” to provide opportunities for learning with one another. We exchange wisdom for the learning available to each other and it’s always worthwhile. I shared how there are times when I… View Article

#10 – Urgency vs. Desperation

Published on March 1, 2019 Written by

#10 Urgency vs. Desperation Urgency and desperation; they can appear so similar we confuse them when the stakes are high and timelines are short, yet they are very different. Perhaps they are cousins from the same family, one on the abundance side and one on the scarce side. Urgency breeds innovation, disruption and intentional immediacy…. View Article

#9 – Choosing Your Ride

Published on February 28, 2019 Written by

#9 Choosing Your Ride “I’m afraid of what might happen…” Really, do you like roller coasters? I’ve asked people this question for years when they talk about being afraid to do something. Some people love roller coasters and some people are scared of roller coasters and would rather do anything than ride on one; rarely… View Article
