I have visited…

A lot of companies and met with a lot of executives. And the one common denominator I have found in those companies that are successful and have a cool vibe inside, is that the executives have turned the “Trust Level” up. They understand and realize that their employees are grown ups and when they treat… Read more »

Reflect on your…

Success’ and not your failures. Simple enough…but more difficult to do. We all seem to recall our past failures, more often than we care to admit, but they always seem to “pop up” on a regular basis. We need to balance things out by taking the time to reflect on all of our past Success’…. Read more »

Life’s Journey

A struggle or adventure…it’s your choice on how you perceive your journey. Many times we don’t start moving forward in our journey because we are comfortable with what we have…people even stay in a “Rut” because it’s cozy plus they can feel both sides, and other times we just get too nervous about what may… Read more »

Baby Steps…

In coaching, I have seen individuals, teams and departments take it to the “Next Level” when they work out a solid game plan and don’t rush the process.

To give or not to give…

“Giving” is the only word that is on 2 lists, one list being Positive and the other being Negative: 1. Love, gratitude, hope, dreams, passion, GIVING, etc. 2. Hate, anger, resentment, jealousy, contempt, GIVING, etc. Many people I coach have a challenge with giving too much…time, money, emotion etc. until they feel there is nothing… Read more »

I’ll do it when…

I get more time. Ever said that to yourself? I did, last week when my youngest wanted to watch a movie with me, and after I said it, it hit me like a brick, because I forgot… We will never have “more” time, only the time that ticks by. And in embarrassingly remembering that, I… Read more »

You may have heard that…

After the chess game, the King and pawn go back into the same box. But more importantly, in the next game, they both get a fresh start. Yours in a “fresh start” – Coach
