Helping others reach their fullest potential in leadership and in life. 

Intentional Leadership Growth

Be your own best boss

Sometimes, we push ourselves so hard to be a great leader of others that we forget about ourselves in the process. I've seen leaders burn themselves out, lose their passion, and have a drop in health among other things because they didn't lead themselves well. ...

Overcoming unconscious

Unconscious bias, or implicit association, plays a part in all of our lives and how we lead others. Last week we discussed what this kind of bias is and what the types of unconscious bias are. Today we are jumping into finding it in our own lives and then strategies...

Understanding Unconcious Bias

Unconscious bias is something that each of us deals with on a daily basis. If you had a flat tire would you ask a man or woman to help you? Who would you ask to help sew up a hole in your shirt?  Who is more likely to ask for directions if they are lost? These...

Early failure can lead to future success

You have more failure than success. Doesn't that feel great to be affirmed in today? Well, I am right there with you; in fact, we all are.  Your failures can often lead to a larger success when we handle them the right way and use them to help us focus our...

Communicating vision to others

Communicating the vision for your team or organization is one of the most important things that you can do as a leader. Without a focused vision, employees can become lost in the meaning of their work, become unproductive, and have a higher chance of leaving to work...

Act with diplomacy and tact

Sometimes we have incredible ideas or thoughts that would make a world of difference in the business and people or around us, but end up sabotaging ourselves in our communication and vision casting to others.  It's essential to show diplomacy and tact when working...

How camping can improve your leadership

I camped out quite a bit growing up and reconnected to camping this last year. I loved it as a kid, but I think that I appreciate it even more as an adult. Camping is an activity that can truly add value to your leadership journey and can help you make a significant...

How to be miserable

What a year it has been! COVID-19 feels like it has been around forever at this point, but it was just a year ago when countries across the world began to lockdown.  Since then the job market has tanked, civil unrest and protests began to happen across the globe...

Profiles in Leadership: Sophie Scholl

Just because so many things are in conflict does not mean that we ourselves should be divided.-Sophie Scholl Scholl grew up in Nazi Germany where she began passively resisting the teaching and programs as early as 13-years-old and through a small group of friends...

Profiles in leadership: Robert Baden-Powell

The real way to gain happiness is to give it to others. -Lord Robert Baden-Powell  Robert Baden-Powell is the father of the scouting movement that eventually grew to be the largest and most significant youth movement of the 20th century. Millions of scouts...

What to do when someone breaks your trust

Trust is the most highly valued commodity when it comes to relationship building, both in your personal and professional life. Your level of comfortability, authenticity, and transparency are all heavily influenced by your level of trust in someone.  So how do we...

Culture Fit Vs. Personality Match

The term "culture fit" is used with increasing frequency as more companies and teams begin to actually live out their values. In prior decades those values often hung on the walls of the office but never held true meaning. Today they are used to focus their...

Tips to manage stress

Stress is something that we all deal with on a daily basis. It's not a matter of if you have stress today, it's more a matter of how much stress you have today. Your body, mind, and effectiveness begin to take a hit as the scales begin to tip into unhealthy levels....

Tips to be more persuasive

People think about different things when it comes to the power of persuasion depending on your life stage.  For teens and young adults, it may be focused on social media influencers, while adults may think of salespeople, politicians, or the pushy...

Sharpen your observation skills

I like to think of myself as a fairly observant person. Whether that's the details in the way someone dresses, their body language in an interaction, or the general surroundings, I enjoy the finer details on what's going on around me.  Having good observation...
