Mmm… leadership. What is it? A title? A job? An identity? An attitude? Let me offer a definition, inspired by this week’s podcast guest and leadership expert, Susan Mazza. Leadership is the ability to make a difference through your service to others by your everyday actions.

Tell Me About You

This past week I have been interviewing job candidates for my clients; they are looking to hire several people into new roles. I love to watch how people present themselves – in what they send in, on the phone and face-to-face. This is worthy of some comments, so here I go. It is important for us to … Continue reading

Choose a Different Thought

You see someone that others have told you is a jerk so you share a negative comment about the person with your friends. Someone cuts you off on the highway – you think the person is inconsiderate so you speed ahead and cut the person off. Someone makes fun of something about you. You make … Continue reading

Don’t Be Afraid of Life’s Tough Stuff

You break up with someone you care about. You don’t get into the your first choice college. You lose your job. Your friends don’t include you like they used to. You get sick.

Take Your Blinders Off

We start off as amazing, creative and original beings who, over time, learn how to think, act and live like everyone else. I call it building the blinders. And with blinders, all we see is what is in front of us – the things that looks like what everyone else does.

You Can’t Train Against Nature

I love watching Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer. And though he is sharing his thoughts and experience with dogs, much of what he says relates to humans too, including this one – you can’t train against nature. Some dogs are born to run, others to sit in our laps. Confine the herding or hunting dogs … Continue reading

Who Are You Wearing?

The big award shows – the Emmys, the Oscars, etc. – crack me up. Though they are ideally celebrating the accomplishments and work of artists, they start the evening with the superficial, “who are you wearing?” All the fanfare about who is wearing whose gowns and tuxes, who looks amazing and who will be called … Continue reading

Go For Bold!

You were born awesome. I love saying that. I love seeing people’s faces when they hear it. It isn’t just to say something flattering – it is the truth. Science, religion and philosophy rarely agree, but they all agree that we each are born with unique and amazing abilities – gifts. In other words, we are born … Continue reading

The Lizard Brain and the Wizard Brain

You were born awesome. You have talents, strengths and passions – unique abilities that no one else has in exactly the same way. And you can use these abilities to go out and live a great life. But so many of us choose not to live our greatness. We stay sheltered, afraid to be part … Continue reading

3 Ways To Make Life Great

As I travel to teach, coach and speak, I hear some of the most amazing stories about how life is for people. Though I share a greatness and passion message, I more often hear that life and work are “4-letter words.” Each is a struggle. Each is less than they would like. They seem to be … Continue reading
