Many Leaders are One Bad Habit Away from Being a Great Leader

Most of us are one bad habit away from being a great leader. A VitalSmarts study of close to 1,000 managers found that 97% of us have at least one career-limiting habit, a habit that keeps us from greater success or enjoyment in our career. Unfortunately, their research also shows that while most of us have been […]

Why am I excited to be in the Ukraine?

Hello from Zhitomyr, Ukraine. Why am I excited to be here? It’s the perfect place for our last training event of 2017. Coaching is new to the Ukraine.

ELMO!

One of the things that I enjoy about coaching teams is that every team is unique and different. In fact, teams often have their own code language.

I’ve gone from scratchy AM radio to full HD cinema surround sound!

I have been listening with all my senses all week. As a predominantly auditory processor it has been eye opening (pun intended) to listen with my other senses. It’s amazing to watch […]
