To embrace change, we must first let go

Child releasing ballon signifying change and release of stressHumans have a love-hate relationship with change. If we are the instigators of change - creating it because it's what we want - change is good.

Carving Time Out For Team Coaching

Two Heads Connecting Ideas

A leader's time is becoming fragmented as never before. Incorporating new processes and technology. Increased matrix-team involvement. Dealing with the demands of an ever-increasing competitive landscape. The list goes on. Where then does coaching one's team members come into play?

Business person pushing large boulder up hill signifying low motivationMost of us find our motivation and passion lacking at some point in our jobs. It's normal. But when this situation lingers and you find yourself feeling stuck and hopeless, it's time to take a deeper look.

In a past article, I wrote about the influence judgment can have over our ability to lead. To judge is human. As emotional beings judgment is, if nothing else, an emotional response to our environment. On a deeper level, it's a protective mechanism.

Caterpiller changing to a butterfly signifying growth and potential

We all remember those strong leaders we've encountered in our lives. Their impact lingers because that's the nature of true leadership.
