A Long Holiday Weekend

This weekend, summer unofficially arises from the cold earth and skiing and already the rush is on. Boats in the water this weekend, cookouts planned, tourists on the highway heading to Cape Cod and/or Rhode Island beaches and life is coming back to the “normal” of summer traffic on the highway. Reminds me of an old saying: “God’s in His…

Living For Success Or To Live Your Life?

When others ask me what I do I can have a wide variety of answers depending upon the situation, timing, and/or their experiences, etc. When what you do is really simply a reflection of who you are, it is so intimate it can be shared in a few words “I change lives.”  In responses such as “I create transformational experiences…

Forging Ahead

We have all had those moments when stopping in our tracks, sitting down, and just not moving anywhere seems like the best option.  Whether that’s because we have been overworking, feeling depressed, unmotivated, or just plain disinterested, sometimes stopping allows us to simply catch up with ourselves before seeing what’s next. That concept may seem counterintuitive to success or progress…

Do You Know Your Values?

This may sound like a strange question since, of course you do, is the logical response, yet… My LinkedIn profile says: Guiding Visionary Leaders Through Transition. Challenging existing paradigms, discovering innovative solutions, and honoring value-driven leadership, through personal transformation for success on all levels.

Humility And The Wild Ride Of Leadership

Have you had those moments when a belief you know is true is called upon again and again in a short period of time? Almost as if the Universe, God, or Someone wanted to make sure you heard it or perhaps that you shared it. I had another potential client, a CEO, approach me this week about Imposter Syndrome -…

Reaching For Goals Yet Without Attachment

One of the ironies of life is that we are called, almost compelled, to go after our dreams and set creative goals. Those visions and our commitment to them, are what give us the ability to walk around obstacles and persevere even when all seems hopeless and yet the gift of being detached from the outcome frequently makes the attempt…

The Humility Of Impactful Leadership

Today, in speaking with a client, who is a highly successful MD and an absolute trailblazer, (my favorite kind of leader) we discussed the extensive power he has through his influence and impact. His energy reaches across a large geographical area in a very deep and transformational way. Like so many of us, who are truly heart and soul-based leaders,…

What Degree Of Transparency Are You Comfortable With?

A great deal has been written about transparency and leadership, frequently using a variety of examples to further explain where it is possible. In acknowledging a mistake in a judgment call that was made, or when going through a difficult period for the organization, when there’s a need to cut back, or even the hope and possibility of a major…

The Simplest Of Things

Conversations can seem like the simplest of things yet in reality they are such an indicator of so much more. I receive this wonderful newsletter, Admired Leadership-Field Notes. It is truly inspirational in the world of leadership. However, at times, their messages are universal. Today’s conversation had me thinking of so many things. The fact that it came after an…

The Call To Leadership

When hearing about leadership, it is almost natural to think of someone in an organizational or political context. However, every one of us on this planet is called to leadership. Leadership of our lives, our future, our daily lives and so on. Yes, for some, it may also in addition apply to their position within their own or another’s organization.…
