Leadership Traps: Communication Without Communicating

Depending upon where you're from, or what generation you are part of, your view of what a leader should and should not be will vary.

A New Perception Can Alter Your Reality

What are you doing right now? What are you thinking about at this moment? How do you perceive the challenges you're facing today? If you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that you could change something for the better, would you go ahead and do it? The outcome of something is greatly influenced by the perception a person has towards it. Even though I may be beginning to sound like a…See More

Aligning Actions with Values: Set the Example

Yesterday, I was reading an article about the sentencing of a beloved New England city mayor for receiving a bribe while he was in office. The incident in question was committed about three to four years ago by way of him accepting work to be done on his home at a greatly reduced price in exchange for favoritism on contractual bidding for work needing to be done for the city he governed. I say this mayor was…See More

Renew Your Energy

We all have a battery pack within us that helps to sustain our personal energy throughout each day. Nope, I'm not talking about the meal we have in the morning with that fresh cup of coffee or tea, although that is a part of the overall energy equation. I'm talking about the personal energy each one of us has when it comes to…See More

Let's Have Some Character; Keeping One’s Word

Keeping one's word. It's probably one of the easiest ways to build credibility and also one of the easiest ways to loose it. Keeping your word is also one of the simplest ways to show character and integrity. Why do I say that? Let me tell you what recently happened to me and how someone, unfortunately, tainted their character by doing something as simple as not keeping their word on more than one occasion.The other day I…See More

Why Would Someone Want to be a Leader?

It's a question I find myself asking every now and then. Being a leader always comes with it added responsibility in some form or another. Added responsibility because everyone has things they are responsible for in their life. Whether it is their rent or mortgage, grocery bills, school homework, parenthood responsibilities, job responsibilities, you name it. We all have them in some mix. When a person is a leader, added responsibilities come about. With that added pressures, added stress, more…See More

Sometimes It Comes Down to a Choice

Last week I was fortunate enough to be a participant in a two day leadership retreat. I was one of among thirty or so regional leaders chosen for a year long training program where participants will be involved in the development of a community based project. The two day leadership retreat was the first time everyone involved in the year long training program would be getting together. When I found out that I was…See More
