I’m a father, a husband, a son, a cousin, a kick-ass High-Performance advisor, a senior consultant, a director of organization development, a neighbor, a customer, an author, a speaker, and on… and on… and on….
Each of these roles is in relation to another. To you, the reader, I’m the author and perhaps your advisor. To my wife, I’m her husband. To my kids, I’m the papa. Each person I encounter wants or needs something different from me. At my core I don’t change. Yet for each person, I’m different.
We all are. We’re different people to each person we encounter. Never was that more clear than when I was a pre-school teacher. Each little being had their own way of encountering the world and interacting with those around him/her. Each had his/her own level of wonder. And each needed something different. As the teacher, I had to be different in...
Oh sure, you’re successful. Aren’t you?
Success means so many different things to every person. The thing is, most of us headed down the path of “supposed to” and ended up not feeling very successful once we arrived.
So the concept of what success really means begs for a redefinition on a regular basis. That is, when was the last time you really evaluated or re-evaluated your life’s trajectory? We chase after that feeling of “I’ve got this” or “I made it!” and our journey teaches us something… There’s More!
We ache for more!
Feeling dissatisfied with where you are isn’t a bad thing. And, that said, being grateful for what you have is a really good thing. So where’s the balance?
The balance is in recognizing that you can be happy with what you have and still ache to have more, be more, serve more, do more. You can be dissatisfied and grateful at...
Which way do YOU tilt?
We each have preferences. When I bring my hands together and interlace my fingers, I prefer my left thumb on top. (Now you try!) I don’t happen to like chicken on my pizza. And I lean toward being more inspirational than operational when I lead.
You’re reading this because you’re a leader. Whether you’re a parent, someone on a team, or in front of an organization, you’ve got people who look to you. You’re a role model – directly or indirectly – and that makes you a leader.
So the question is this – what is your preferred leadership style? The spectrum runs essentially from someone who thinks more tactically and operationally through to someone who thinks strategically and serves inspirationally. Do you find yourself developing lists for the sake of getting things done? Or maybe you’re the person who likes lists to keep you organized and...
It gets better! It really does. You don’t need to ever feel condemned to the sense that this is a series of moments to simply endure. In fact, what you bring to every moment is the key to what the next moment holds.
In The Significance Factor, the very first chapter delves into the beginning steps for what it takes to set out on a journey of transforming your life to make it truly matter. Here, you look at what you truly value and what you bring to any situation.
Only by staying in congruence with your own true values can you make a difference to anyone else. If you placate, give in, go along to get along, or engage in activities that you wouldn’t want to have done to you, then your congruence is lost and you end up living a life out of balance.
Whether at home or at the office, whether on the soccer field as a participant or as a parent in the stands, whether at the grocery store or in a restaurant, you know what you...
We did it, you and I; we did it!!! Now that The Significance Factor has launched and the contest I announced last week has passed, let’s look at what we did, how we did it, and what you need to know to get s**t done…
The Significance Factor became a Best Seller on Thursday, September 29th and I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present!
So what does it take to do something like that? Funny enough, the answer to that can actually be found in The Significance Factor.
Over the next several weeks, I’ll walk us through the salient points from this new Best Seller (I don’t ever want to get over the feeling I get when I hear that: Best Seller… mmmmmmm). For now, here are the essential steps and what they mean to you, even if you’re not writing a book:
First, know who you are and what you stand for. Recognizing that your voice matters because you are clear about your vision and values is the first step in...
