Handful to Ponder

  • It's not about you
  • It's all about you

It's about what you're doing for others & how your intentions provide the evidence of your authentic intentions. Realizing & doing them is leadership to me.

  • Behavior
  • Change

The hardest part about leadership development. The start is what stops most people.

  • Coach People
  • Fix Processes

You don't have to be better than another person to help them, to coach them. You just have to care a whole awful lot. Help people do their work by removing the barriers of broken or inefficient processes. Time isn't a renewable resource.

  • Success
  • Partner

Accountability is often what happens when things go wrong. Start seeing those around you as success partners & you'll find encouragement replaces judgement.

  • Heaven
  • Hell

In either case, it all between our ears. Get clear on your values & live into them every day. You'll find more presence during the day & satisfaction at the end. Then all you have to do is get some rest & go again the next day.
