Leading Successfully = Growing Your People to Be All That They Can Be

Not too long ago I had lunch with a young manager who has loads of potential; she’s smart, brings great positive energy to all she does, is hardworking and eager to learn, takes feedback with a mindset to improve as opposed to having hurt feelings and is collaborative and supportive with her colleagues. What more can you ask for? In my view, she is the employee most organizations would want to mentor, coach, train and ...

Stop BSing Yourself – Make Time!

March 31, 2019  |   Values   |     |   0 Comment

  One of the most common explanations I hear from friends, family and those I work with is that they are not accomplishing what they say they want to accomplish because there simply isn’t enough time to do it. At the risk of annoying you, I say nonsense!! This is the lie we tell ourselves to justify why we are not doing what we say we really want ...

Ownership Equals Success

March 01, 2015  |   Leadership,Values   |     |   0 Comment

The past few weeks I have been reflecting on the work of Steve Chandler and David Schwartz. Both write about the power of taking full ownership of your life and the positive impact this can have in creating the successes you want. Now this is not new thinking, but it has really resonated with me personally. Lately I have been surrounded with a great deal of energy that sings more of ‘we can’t’ ...

What’s Your Career Fit for 2015?

January 25, 2015  |   Leadership,Values   |     |   0 Comment

What do you have in store for your career in 2015?  Anything new on your horizon or is it simply the status quo?  If you are planning to seek new opportunities do you have a plan in place to help you find the change you want? Are you clear on what it is you want?  I find many seeking career change lack clarity when it comes to making career decisions.  Many of us struggle with believing ...

“It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration. Those emotions are poison to any living goal.” Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free This especially resonated with me today as I reflected on recent experiences working with an organization’s change initiative.  What I witnessed was the inability of people in the organization to let go of a past change initiative that had not gone well because people continue to feel the change had ...

Living In Line With Purpose

June 15, 2014  |   Values   |     |   0 Comment

One of the greatest and most rewarding pieces of work I do with the professional women I work with focusses on supporting them to get clear on what it is they truly value. This work enables us to create a picture of where they are living in balance with what they truly value, and where they are living at odds with their values. When we are experiencing friction all around us we can be sure we ...

Finding Good Enough

I have been absent the past couple of weeks due to being busy. Actually, in saying that I have been too busy I am letting myself off the hook. The truth is I have not posted a blog since May 17 because I have prioritized other areas of focus. When I began blogging my commitment to myself was to post weekly and I have now missed that self-imposed target. I have a ...

Work-Life Imbalance means….?

If you have worked in an organization, then you have heard about, read about and talked about work-life balance and what that means.  I have heard, read and been involved in many passionate debates on this topic and one thing I have noticed is that people can be very positional on this matter.  

Who’s Managing Your Decisions – You or Your Inner Critic?

I remember when I was 26 and I wanted to go back to school, my inner critic was raging with all the reasons I must be crazy even to consider such a thing.  This is what ran through my mind those many years ago…..”For heaven’s sake, don’t be an idiot, you’re not smart enough to go to college or university and ...

What Inspires You to Be Your Best As A Leader?

May 01, 2014  |   Leadership   |     |   0 Comment

When I reflect on the leaders I have worked with in my various careers, I go immediately to my best and worst experiences.  I have had many bosses over the years and some I have come to admire greatly while others…well, let’s just say I learned how I don’t want to lead.  However, I can honestly say that all of my experiences have provided good learning in my ongoing ...
