From Resistant to Resilient…

By | 2018-06-27T22:10:24+00:00 June 27th, 2018|News|

From Resistant to Resilient… Compressed timelines, business pressures and stress can destroy trust and rip a team apart. The secret to having a resilient team is to highlight what IS working before focusing on what’s NOT working. Great teams pause to celebrate successes, they appreciate the actions of others on the team and focus on what's working before focusing on what’s not working. It seems obvious, but the villainous voice in our head pushes us into when/then thinking… When we cross the goal line, then we can celebrate, but the reality is that the more you drive down the field, the further the goal line shifts into the distance. It’s completely normal, but it’s not sustainable. If you want a [...]

Managing Up!

By | 2018-05-30T14:07:10+00:00 May 30th, 2018|News|

Managing Up! I’m in meetings all day, I’m in early and stay late, but it seems there is no satisfying my boss… What is his problem? Does he think I’m superhuman? The pace of change is only increasing and leaders of all levels are struggling to keep up. For them, it’s more about surviving than THRIVING… but one habit I’ve noticed from HEROES is that they manage up! That’s right… They manage up! Most top leaders have a massive sense of urgency and it drives them to think bigger and beyond today. They are always thinking about what’s NEXT and not about what’s NOW or what’s realistic. They’re competitive, they love a challenge, and they have to WIN. That’s not [...]

Impostor Syndrome We all have that looming voice in the back of our minds that discounts our achievements and keeps us feeling a lack of confidence/success until we achieve the next milestone. That voice is our inner villain voice and it whispers quietly in our ear creating beliefs to support it’s Rational-LIES. Seriously, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is easy! We see everyone's life as the highlight reel they choose to convey on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. The glorious life they live and how they are basking in the sweet success that always seems to find them. Then we start to Catastrophize the endless challenges and distractions that seem to pour over us in any given [...]

The Curse of the Bad Hire…

"I just don't know how to get through to her. It's like we don't even speak the same language!" Sarah was frustrated with her new employee. She needed help and she didn't know which way to turn. "I invested all of this time in her, but she just doesn't get it! I try to explain our culture and the way we do things around here, but she ignores me and does it her own way. Should I get rid of her and start over or should I just keep trying to get through to her? It's so FRUSTRATING!!! I'm at my wits end.... " A BAD HIRE can cripple a small company and be devastating on morale... If Culture [...]

Heroes and Villains of the NBA Finals

By | 2018-04-23T15:37:26+00:00 June 16th, 2016|News|

Life comes in waves and sometimes your ready for the next wave and sometimes your still struggling with the last one. That’s why I LOVE the NBA playoffs. I see players unleashing their hero and taming their inner villain and on a nightly basis. I LOVE watching them push their leadership limits and leveraging the strengths of their teammates to WIN the game. Watching others go big or go home is refreshing. Besides giving me a break from my own stresses, I get to watch how others handle their STRESS on the big stage. I’ve always wondered….Why to some players shine while others fade away? Does Lebron James become Michael Jordan and carry the team or does he try and [...]
