When You Feel Like Your Own Worst Enemy

Mar 05, 2020

 

I remember when I was my toughest critic, always falling short of my expectations.

I thought I was pushing myself to be better. But it never seemed to end.

I'd always find something else to be disappointed with.

This not only affected me, but it also affected my team. I became very judgmental of other's performance.

We'll just say the combination of the two had a tendency to create a tense and intimidating environment for those who worked with me.

At the time, it was understandable considering the pressure to get results.  

But as I've studied high-performance I'm learning there are simple things that we do that hold us back from our potential and therefore the potential of our team.

One simple thing that might be tripping you up is the Law of Dominant Thought.

3 Things All Ineffective Leaders Have in Common

Feb 27, 2020

As a leader, wouldn't it be great if someone were to just tell you what NOT to do?

Naturally, this was a question I've always wondered...what am I doing that's getting in the way of me being effective as a leader?

I knew what I was "supposed" to do and be as a leader.

Yes, all leaders should serve their team.  John Maxwell says, "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."

Like you, I've heard all the aphorisms around leadership.  But you know what?

I've never heard anyone talk about these three pitfalls that all ineffective leaders have in common.

Even strong leaders fall into these three human tendencies.  

The beautiful thing is that because these aren't talked about, you might not even be aware you're doing this. 

And that's what's so great because once you do become self-aware you can start to choose a different more effective approach. 

In this video, we'll discuss the three most common pitfalls...

The number one question that I'm most often asked is "How do I grow as a leader and develop my executive presence?"

Executive presence, what does that even look like?

You know it when you see it, right?

The person is poised, intuitive, creative, focused, powerful, persuasive, and even charismatic.  They communicate with ease, they have clarity, and have a way of simplifying complexity.
