Hold the Phone!

Strengths overused become weaknesses?!? What?!?  It’s easy to get derailed by all the advice we are given about how to evolve our leadership. Work on my weaknesses. Work on my strengths. Don’t let my strengths become my weaknesses. As we think about it – knowing our brains are always looking for shortcuts – it can…

S.M.A.R.T. Leadership

You may have made New Year’s resolutions or decided against resolving anything for 2023, preferring to see how things play out. You probably couldn’t go wrong either way. And yet, you would likely benefit from both approaches: Knowing it’s smart to be resolute as well as helpful to stay open to whatever happens (especially given…

Reset?

Every New Year’s Eve, I write a letter to myself to be read the following New Year’s Eve. In it, I envision what the coming year will bring. As you can imagine, world events over the last few years have thrown some curve balls at my expectations.  We didn’t win the HGTV Vermont house, but…

Looking Back Illuminates the Future

Individual looking back
I remember thinking it was way too early for holiday decorations at the end of October. What was the rush anyway? And then … bam! We’re now one week away from the start of a brand-new year. Where does the time go?!   In the past, I would use the period between Christmas and New Year to…

Don’t Go It Alone

As I reflect on the power of teams, I remembered a blog from 2019 that I wrote; I think it’s worth sharing again… Most of my career has been about leading change; often, it was to fix something that wasn’t working.  One of these opportunities – inside a Fortune 10 company – resulted in what…

Because I am a constant learner, I’ve had to overcome a dynamic I encounter often: learning in front of others, and the occasional embarrassment that comes with that. Several executives I’ve worked with and coached have shared similar challenges because—when you operate at the top of an organization—you are often viewed as if you are…

What’s Your Brand?

We are constantly bombarded with advertisements and slogans establishing a company’s brand. To this day, if someone mentions the company Alka-Seltzer, their tagline (from the 1970s) “Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz, Oh what a relief it is” automatically plays in my head. I’m sure there are plenty of examples of brands playing around in yours. These…
