Are You Scared Enough?

There is something amazing about working with a highly skilled coach whose focus and purpose is to help you find clarity, purpose and momentum to truly achieve what you dream of.  Yes, I know, I am coach, but I am actually not talking about myself here.  I believe that every good leader and every great coach does even better when they have a highly skilled and trusted coach of their own.  If there is anything I have learned about leadership in these past several years, it is to not lead alone. So, this brings me to the question at the top of this page.  It is a question that I was asked...

Leading through Service

servant leadership students Effective, strong leaders are not what they used to be.  That is in no way, shape or form meant as a complaint…it is a statement of the evolution of the leadership and the pathway to a better world. Leadership, like pretty much everything else, has changed over time in many parts of the world.  Strong leaders used to lead firmly from the top.  There was a clear and enforced heirachy of who was in charge and whose orders were to be followed.  Leaders led by giving orders with or without divulging the details of why, and everyone “under” them...

Being Who YOU Are

Current news is full of stark reminders of the temporary and fragile state of everything around us; including us.   First responders killed in the line of duty, a tornado that decimated homes and took innocent lives with little warning.  It takes very little paying attention to have the realization of loss and unfairness of tragedies like these to be known. We see people hurting and we want to help.  Especially people right here in our community, our own country.  They are like us.  We relate.  We feel a sameness that spurs us into seeing them as real and the connection made through that...

A Common Thread

Finding your purpose and passion seems to be something that many people seem to be looking for (well, those who haven’t found it yet, of course). I often get asked by clients to help me find theirs.  This is a harder task than helping someone find their lost keys, or a new dress, or the answer to an algebra problem.  Here is the reason: Your passion and purpose can only be discovered, found, seen, and so-by-named by you.  I can have duplicate keys made, I can have a new dress designed, and I can find a math whiz to work the algebra formula…but to find what lights the eternal fire...
