Flawed and Excellent #210 Some days, it seems everything is more challenging than it should be. Imperfect and flawed. I was presenting for a client in two different cities the same week. We’d been planning for months and we were ready. When I arrived at the first location, for the first time ever, our materials […]

It’s Like Laundry #208 Eliminating waste is a great thing. When you think of waste, do you include time, energy and money? How about space? At the beginning of the year, I realized how much stress I had when my email inbox was full. Like all busy people, I receive many emails on any given […]

Filling the Space We Have #189 I bought a new truck recently. It’s larger and newer than any car or truck I’ve owned. It’s technology with wheels, a very lovely ride, and has an amazing sound system. What more could I want, right? Not so. I don’t like how big this truck is. I am […]

Don’t Wait #181 If you want something, do you wait for it? I don’t. In my twenties, when I wanted a job, I met with the owners of a small training company and expressed my interest in working for them. They told me they couldn’t afford to hire any employees at the time. Though I […]

No Throw Away Moments #169 Sometimes we forget. We forget the meaning and importance behind what we’re doing and it erodes from there. It can be as simple as preparing for a meeting. When I remind the leaders I work with about the facts – what it costs them to host a meeting with their […]

Complacency is the Enemy #168 As a leader, you have the honor of caring for the tone of your culture daily. Some days, that may feel like a privilege and other days it may seem a burden. What’s the difference? It’s how you’re relating to the complex beings around you and the interpretation you have […]

Sparking Action #166 When you pursue a dream, a future opportunity, or a goal, all kinds of concern, worry, and fear can show up.
