Practicing Reflection

Jessica B. ·
If your year started like mine, it left you reeling from a packed schedule and more on your plate than you thought you had. I came into 2021 with a peaceful mindset, having just taken the bulk of two weeks off, but somehow still felt a little blindsided when my first day back at work came around. I decided I needed to do something before I allowed my year to continue down this path. So this past weekend, I spent some time reflecting and planning and now I feel even more ready for whatever...

Mistakes leaders make...

Karl Bradley ·
Some mistakes leaders make... Putting themself ahead of others; not being self-aware and/or self-reflective. Betraying others' trust Being certain; (Re)acting too fast Not living up to their own values; inauthentic Overly enamored with their own vision; arrogance If it seems like it's all about you, you're in the gig for the wrong reason. It shouldn't be all about the leader. Trust must be present for there to be betrayal. This is the worst & perhaps hardest for people to recover from.

Great post and so true, especially, being certain is a very common trait among leadership in my organization. Being certain to the point that not really listening.

Yes, leadership that exhibits dictatorship, micro-managment, and self-seeking ambitions and goals is out-of-date, out-of-touch, and out-of-style. It doesn't work!!

GPCAH FarmSafe podcast dropping tomorrow

Jennifer Janine Patterson ·
Please tune in to the GPCAH FarmSafe podcast this Wednesday, December 8, and listen to our latest episode. In this episode, we talk about lighting and marking and how they increase visibility of farm vehicles and equipment on roadways. Reflective tape and slow-moving vehicle emblems draw the other driver’s attention to the agricultural vehicle which may give them more time to adjust their speed and decrease the likelihood of a crash. Listen at bit.ly//GotoFarmSafe or wherever you usually...

Memorial Day

Karl Bradley ·
The "unofficial" start of summer begins on the last weekend in May. It begins with reflection. It begins with gratitude. Gratitude for those who lost their lives serving our nation. It's a different pause for reflection. Each November 11 we set aside for Veteran's Day. This day is for ALL who have served in our military. In peace or at war. Living or deceased. Memorial Day is about those who have given everything. In this letter, President Lincoln captures the sacrifice & loss of loved...

Coaching 101

Karl Bradley ·
If you're after self-improvement at all you've probably sought out a coach. These days it's cool to have a coach. Whatever your goal, great progress can be made with a coach. What about when someone asks you for help? Or you're in a role that requires you to guide others? What will your approach be? What will your style be? For me, it's helpful to start from the beginning, perhaps it will help you too as you consider how to bring the best version of yourself to the role of coach. I'm just...

What is leadership to you?

Karl Bradley ·
When we lived in Japan the leader of North Korea was posturing and threatening nuclear war. We did biological and nuclear war drills. Our kids did drills at school. It was stressful for everyone. During this time my wife deployed leaving me to balance parental responsibilities with the intensity of work. It was exhausting but also a period of growth for me. To help get through it all I decided it was time to figure out what leadership meant to me. This took going back over my plethora of...
