2021 – The Year Of The Entrepreneur

2021-01-12T16:29:07-06:00

I have long believed that entrepreneurs can build things that make the world better. This doesn’t mean that is true for every entrepreneur. Some people build products that are handy or snazzy but not better. Others even create businesses that definitely do nothing to make the world better. Big business doesn’t change things. The [...]

New Year, New Perspective

2021-01-12T16:29:27-06:00

Much of my work focuses on how we are perceived. In leadership, perception is reality and the goal is ensuring authentic leaders are perceived as credible, persuasive, and influential. However, 2020 has been quite a year and leaders have been faced with new and uncertain challenges. So, as we all prepare for 2021 (boy, [...]

Our Thoughts, Mood, and Mindset Determine Our Tone

2021-01-12T16:30:17-06:00

As our world (business and otherwise) seems to get more hectic every day, I am finding that tone is playing a bigger part in how others receive our messages. Back when the world was on its axis, body language and energy played a large part in how we were perceived. The energy we brought to [...]

Your Vote Is Your Voice

I grew up with a lawyer father who loved American history and the law. I also had a mother who I watched become a US citizen after 20 years here. Civics and voting were conversations had in my home from a young age. Since then, I have never missed a vote. Even when I [...]

Common Ground as the Antidote to Isolation

2020-11-13T11:47:47-06:00

The past few months have felt isolating for most people both professionally and personally. But it’s not just staying at home and meeting over Zoom that’s done this to us. Smiles: When we go out, we wear masks. They are essential and, in a way say “I’m wearing this to keep you safe” but they [...]

Spectator to Participant: Tips to Navigate Your Next Virtual Meeting

2020-11-13T11:51:21-06:00

There is no shortage of great articles currently circulating the internet about how to be a better Virtual Meeting Host. My only issue with this is that they all focus on helping those leading the meetings but what about those attending the meetings? Attendees? ‘Why does it matter to be a better attendee?' You [...]

The Best Leaders regularly “Walk the Factory Floor”

2018-07-29T13:53:42-06:00

Using the term ‘walking the factory floor’ may seem dated to some. In truth, there are so few factories in our country anymore and I would venture to guess that most CEO’s of those factories don’t even have an office on-site. So how can they walk the floor? However, the term is still highly [...]
