Time Out!

Tweet This past week our leadership team attended The Global Leadership Summit, and it was tremendous to hear some current global leaders discuss the mysteries of leadership.  You can imagine the excitement I felt of receiving rather than presenting and how satisfying it was to have my emotional bucket filled. Here is just one...

Time Out!

Tweet This past week, I found myself working with several executives on change management.  Not only were they trying to deal with change themselves, they were thinking about how to be helpful when others experience change.  How exciting to observe the servant mindset with these executives as they were focused on helping others. The...

Time Out!

Tweet This past week, I was working with an executive team on time management.  We started with a paradigm shift in answering the question, “Why work on ways to better utilize time?”   After all, we get 1,440 minutes every day, and regardless of how effective we are, we get another 1,440 the next...

Tweet The servant mindset is easy to understand yet hard to carry out.  While working with an executive this week, we focused exclusively on the Dale Carnegie human relations principle to “Become genuinely interested in other people.” It is only natural to wonder how applying this principle will help us connect with others and...

Tweet One of the joys of travel for me is meeting new and different people.  On our recent European trip, the first half was with a tour group from Collette Tours.  Colleen and I had never experienced traveling with a tour group, and now we’re hooked!  We highly recommend Collette Tours and are looking...

Tweet It’s hard to believe people are talking about winter already.  After all, we just celebrated Independence Day and winter is still 162 days away.  Yet that’s exactly what happened as I heard an inspirational thought during the International Dale Carnegie Franchise Association meeting in Vienna this summer. Weather-wise, winter can be challenging for...

Tweet What a great European vacation!  Colleen and I spent over two weeks just seeing things we had only read or heard about, and now we have a completely new perspective and appreciation.  Now that we are back, it seems as though we never left, and yet I am changed forever.  First, thanks to...

Tweet Twice I’ve run the entire Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.  It is a beautiful, scenic, challenging, technical, single-track, 70.5-mile trail with about 12,000 feet of vertical gain that goes from Ohiopyle, PA, to Johnstown, PA.  LHHT is unique in that it has permanent markers at every mile.     When people learn I run...

Tweet “Why?” I’m told it’s a child’s favorite question to ask. My friends who are parents often seem frustrated when their young children won’t stop asking “Why?” over and over. No doubt answering why they should eat their vegetables or put away their toys gets old, particularly when each answer is greeted with yet...

Tweet The pronoun “you” triggers an emotional response. It is powerful when you are sharing or giving a compliment such as, “Jack, you are thoughtful in your decision making.” The pronoun “you” becomes destructive when taking corrective action. For example, “Jack, you are wrong in how you process payroll.” The top-down or autocratic leader...
