Energizing for Engagement

Posted on September 8, 2018

We live in a world where there are so many things that make up our day.  “I am busy” has become the new standard answer to “How are you?”  Like a badge of honour, as if we don’t answer this way there must be something wrong with us.  We have changed a question about an emotion to an answer about our actions, this really demonstrates the world we live in.

Lessons on Feedback from America’s Got Talent

Posted on August 5, 2018

Sometimes you get inspiration from the strangest of places and this week, I was inspired by America’s Got Talent.  This show is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.  I am not a reality tv watcher.  However, this show I love watching.  People displaying their talents on a platform that will create opportunity for them to showcase their awesomeness… that I love!  If you have watched AGT over the years you know, they don’t tend to show a lot of the “bad” performances.  This is also one of the reasons I like the show, it highlights talent, not the poor performers.

Athletes who respond better to adversity are more likely to win the championship. Sales professionals who respond with a more positive strategy, are more likely to be in the top 10% of achievers. People who respond to adversity as a temporary set back and not a failure are more likely to be leading the team, department or company.

10 Responsibilities of Being a Leader

Posted on January 26, 2018

“You are not in charge, you are responsible for those in your charge” Simon Sinek

I was inspired by this quote, along with some other reflection I have been doing this week.  Too often people take on the role of leader for the title or for the financial rewards.  They do this without truly understanding what being a leader means.  At the same time there are many out there, without the title, who take on the leader role through their actions and behaviours and leave large imprints on people’s lives.
