You Are a Gift (My Surrender Practice)

I mean it wholeheartedly when I say, you are a gift. A gift to your family, your colleagues, clients and ultimately to the world.

Our community motto for 2021 is Hone It and Own It because you deserve to shine your light as bright as ever in 2021, and you must. There is something that will inevitably get in the way though, so let’s deal with it now, so we can be unencumbered by it in 2021… This invisible barrier is called ‘preference’.

Preference is a funny (and troublesome) thing. When we prefer that something entirely out of our control is a certain way and it isn’t, more often than not it creates anxiety, frustration and sometimes even anger. These snowballs that we build into avalanches with our mind tend to...

Time to Draw Your Own Map?

Time to Draw Your Own Map?

You have a brilliance in you, your contribution is valuable, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must. I’m hoping you’ll stand up and choose to make a difference."
- Seth Godin, Linchpin

In his book Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?, Godin talks about when he was a kid and his love of the comic book series, The Justice League of America. He explained that, with the exception of Batman and Superman, the other members needed to explain their superpowers in the beginning of each story when a stranger was introduced. 

Godin goes on to say that "...the best future available to us is a future where you contribute as your true self and your best work."

So, maybe it’s your time.

Your time to draw your own map. A map that may still include fear and doubt, but one that knows how to use those emotions as superpowers and not kryptonite.

Some of us have been trained to be safe. Not to take...

(Scroll below to view the video)

Top 4 Ways NOT to Bomb in the Boardroom

Have you ever had a meeting, presentation or any important interaction go sideways? Most of us have. Along with being a missed opportunity to  gain the influence, recognition or respect we want and deserve, what stings the most is usually our disappointment in ourselves. Let’s make sure it never happens again.

Here are the top 4 ways that amazing leaders and emerging leaders make mistakes AND how to convert the bomb to being a boss in the boardroom (or in any other crucial interaction):

1.) Lack of Preparation

Since you and your colleagues are likely Zoomed out, this is more important now more than ever. Plan key points/asks/needs/outcomes. Think through how you want the interaction to turn out, and how you want to feel once it’s over. Make it as vivid and visceral as possible, then visualize it until you believe it’s possible.

  • Digging deep is helping people be resilient

  • Listen to when we’re being called for more and really being very strategic and not reactive
