People tend to do what is easy. It takes a lot of energy to be a good listener, so you only listen partially. It takes a lot of energy to break a bad habit and replace it with a good one, so you stay stuck with the bad one. It takes a lot of energy

7 Reasons to Inspire

Tags : 

Leadership isn’t about motivating with fear; it is about motivating through inspiration. I’m fortunate to work with many organizations of many different sizes and in many different sectors. It may not be surprising that most of them express similar challenges. Often they are concerned about improving workplace communication, processing through change, and maintaining an engaged

High Road

Tags : 

What to wear, what to eat, or what will be first on our to-do list? We make choices and decisions every day that impact our lives and in many cases the lives of those around us. Most choices seem like just everyday life, and as a result are commonly taken for granted, ignored, or labeled

Right or Convenient?

Tags : 

Convenience is sometimes taken for granted. We flick a switch and we have light, we adjust the thermostat and we have climate control, and when we want to talk to someone across town or across the country we simply use a little device that is probably already in our hand. It may be convenient to

Small Failures

Tags : 

What costs more, failure or inaction? Too often risk is measured by the calculated cost of failure, a mind-set that inevitably causes people, employees, and businesses to freeze up, hold, or at the bare minimum hesitate. The objective shouldn’t be about measuring the cost of failure. The cost of failure is most likely small, that

Change Anything

Tags : 

Nearly everyone likes something a little bit extra. We like more fun, maybe a few more sweet treats, or even a little more time off from a busy schedule. Most people, who find something they like, want more. The secret to a little bit extra isn’t always more. Sometimes it is about the value we

Push or Shove

Tags : 

Easy feels safe, comfortable, and desirable, but most people who have it easy aren’t accomplishing much. It is easy to grab an ice cream cone, zip through a drive through restaurant, or simply hang out at a job that doesn’t challenge you. People who push for nothing typically stand for little, because that would be

Make a Promise

Tags : 

Marketing materials, a website, or resume, your brand is not what you say that it is, it is what other people feel that it is. Many believe their brand promise is a statement, or their reputation is their resume, they attempt to illustrate who they are through references, customer testimonials, or achievement awards. All of

Take Giant Leaps

Tags : 

Someone will ask, “How do I build more confidence?” Popular wisdom suggests that self-confidence consists of two factors, self-efficacy and self-esteem. Self-efficacy is the idea that you can produce or create a desired outcome. For example, you believe you have the tenacity to achieve a college degree. Self-esteem is your impression of yourself. Typically you
