Is it time for you to pay attention to your career? (SAVE THE DATE!)

Do you have anyone in your life who says things like this? I’m just trying to get through each day until I can get home. I’m tired of being tired/miserable all the time. I’m afraid I’ll get fired. I’ve got no more to give! I’m tired of wrestling everybody just to get the simplest things […]

Know your Role as Leader: Mind In, Hands Off

When we’re faced with leadership challenges that don’t seem to have a solution, it can be so easy to turn to a controlling or autocratic approach. “I’ll just change the way we do things here, and even if that doesn’t fix everything, that will at least stop the bad behavior.” And yet, these autocratic ‘fixes’ […]

These errors leave us vulnerable […]

Some of them go to my church. Some I’ve just met through networking. They are lovely, caring people. And I’m noticing […]

Are you in?

When was the last time you asked yourself, “Do I really want to keep doing this?” You might have been feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, depressed, or exasperated, but I have a secret. That moment, when you are deciding if you are in or out — that’s a powerful moment! It’s a spiritual moment! When you decide whether […]
