The New To-Do List Task Management System.pdf

Have you noticed that our top priorities - the things that make the biggest difference to us and our businesses - are usually the most challenging tasks? They involve us learning, stretching ourselves outside our comfort zones - and so what happens for many of us is that we avoid or procrastinate over doing them!

So many people want "more time" to grow their businesses but then avoid doing what moves them forwards (myself included here - see my personal revelation about how I procrastinate!). But, if we are willing to get Read More...

I've noticed an increase in the requests for Leadership Tools over the last 18 months or so. With a challenging economy for so many businesses, more transparency via social media and the internet (disgruntled customers and employees make their thoughts and experiences public!), and more and more reports that prove leadership qualities are good for the bottom line - organizations want leaders!

But what's interesting is that when I ask what leadership tools people are looking for, or what they want help with - I'm getting a big fat zero. Businesses want leaders, leaders want coaches, and coaches want tools Read More...

One of my goals this year was to share more of my "self" and tell more of my story. I long to, as cherished and recently departed Maya Angelou put it, "... write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart."

Stories help us connect with others - and they help us learn. We learn from other people's successes and mistakes. And when someone stands up and shows who they are, we recognize ourselves and also recognize what we are NOT, so stories help people understand who they are too.
