Monday Morning Leadership Q&A – 9/25/17

Client Question: “What can I do to learn if a company is a good fit for me as I am searching for a new job?”​​ Start off by looking at the website called Glassdoor.

What Would Motivate You To Do This?

One of the kids went to a person’s house yesterday and said “it was pretty cluttered.”  My response was “more than ours?”  She said that this person hasn’t gone through Sue Barber’s remodeling effort yet.  For those who know me, I do have a bit of a challenge with clutter.  I have been actively working on cleaning out things and getting rid of old stuff.  I recognized how much it was weighing me down and draining my energy.  For her…

Are You Limiting Yourself?

What are the beliefs that you have about yourself?  Are they confident beliefs that push you outside of your comfort zone or do you have limiting beliefs that hold you back.  These limitations can prevent you from moving forward in your life if you let them.

Client Question: “I really want to start my own business, but I am uncomfortable walking away from a steady paycheck.”  The world of how we do work is definitely changing.  People used to find a good company to work for and stay there until they retired.  It is now far more common for people to move around every 2-5 years.  Owning your own business is another option.  Many people just want to be their own boss, so they are now pursuing entrepreneurship…

Transition Your Way to Success

Transitions have become a way of life. There are so many examples: getting married, raising kids, taking care of their parents who are getting older, starting a new job, changing companies and retiring. In some ways it can be stressful, but it can also be a new beginning. Everyone has the opportunity to look at these changes through a positive lens and to see what good things can come out of it. I know it is natural to sometimes drift…

It’s Time to Countdown to Success

Multiple people recommended a book to me titled “The 5 Second Rule: Transform Your Life, Work and Confidence with Everyday Courage” by Mel Robbins. I have been listening to it on Audible and the author who narrates the book shares how she came up with this tool to change her life. The premise is fairly simple. She counts backwards 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and then she takes action. She has used it for the past seven years to create change in…
