Happy New Year! We made it to the next decade and welcome to 2020!  At the end of every year, during Boxing Week, I reflect on the year we just had and focus on the upcoming year.  I enjoy decluttering the office both the electronic and paper files.  However, this time I have not completed this task yet.  Yes, it is still on my "To Do List" and will check it off by the end of the week. Goodbye 2019 2019 was going...

This week's blog was inspired by Andy Stanley's book "Next Generation Leader".  Five primary obstacles are identified by Andy for leaders to adopt their way of thinking. 1. The Quest for Balance We have heard of being well-rounded and knowledgeable in all aspects of our respected profession.  However, being a leader, it is more important to have a focus.  Focus on your core competencies and build your team to bring the well-roundedness under your leadership. Defining what you can do best and make...

Successful people always seem to be motivated.    They are energetic, focused and accomplish great things on a consistent basis. What Keeps Us Motivated? Motivated people walk briskly with a purpose and with the sense of confidence.  They have a drive to solve a problem, to create a new standard or to simply take care of the task at hand and move to the next one. The reward for accomplishing and being creative is enough to motivate some.  Being the leader to keep...

As a business networker, this is one of the self-rewarding activities I really enjoy.  Meeting people, some for the first time and others on a regular basis, provides the opportunity to get to know each person' story.  Ask for their story when you meet.  Listen.  Share your story afterwards.  I would like to share a couple of names I have been called when talking about the subject of making connections.

Clear and concise communication results in everyone understanding.  Invite the opportunity to ask questions for further clarification as needed.  Each person on the team knows their role, tasks and their expectations. Active listening plays a role here to communicate effectively.  Leaders listen, they ask questions and share what they heard to ensure...

Leaders always make everyone else a priority.  They focus on all the tasks at hand and ensure things are being taken care of in a timely fashion.  With this successful philosophy, we tend to forget to make time for ourselves. Leaders Are Passionate When we are passionate about the things we do and the people around us, it is easy for this to consume most of our time.  Thanks to certain special people we interact with, they show us what we cannot...

The Personal Side Enjoying time with the Family, both the good times and the tough times.  The difficult times bring the family closer together sharing memories and emotions on what each day will bring.  Watching Haley and Syd grow into young adults and being part of their journey has been a thrill.  The lovely Carmela has been beside me, supporting me and we are there for each other.  We do our best to balance our personal time away from work and...
