What Would You Do With a Little Solitude?

I have coached people to really understand what type of leader that they want to be.  How do they want others to see them?  Why is this is so important?  There will be times when your courage, ethics and integrity will all be tested.  Knowing who you are makes that really easy to address those challenges head on.  This is not as easy to face when you are a leader who is not true to themselves, then there is the…

Do You Have A Conversation That You Are Avoiding?

Why do some people avoid conflict while others seem to thrive on it? Does it have to do with their personality style and/or confidence level? Maybe it is a little of both. People who want to be liked and not cause friction with other people tend to avoid saying the thing that is bothering them the most.

Are You Ready to Run With the Bulls?

Today’s article is by guest contributor Mona Reiser and also includes a few of my own thoughts. Once again she has such a gift for seeing leadership in so many different places. Do you remember hearing “Don’t touch, it’s hot!” when you were younger? It usually happened right before you touched the stove, hot food or a hot drink.

How Can People Get to Know You?

Think back to the last time that you got a new boss.  You needed to learn what their style is, what they like or don’t like, how they work, how to communicate with them, etc.   Now flip the coin and think about the people who will be working with you when you join a team.  How do you let them know this information so they understand how to work with you?
