The power to:

  1. listen and be curious;
  2. engage new and more expansive perspectives;
  3. amplify the voices and personal power of others; or 
  4. make meaningful change.

As a leader you make a choice every day how to use both your personal power (a power each of us enjoys) and your positional power (which is the power you must wield with care). 

How you use or abuse your power MATTERS. AND, when you are a leader, your power and the power you extend onto others MATTERS.

This week's Quick Tip: Power isn't a problem, necessarily. Leaders, formal or otherwise, must consider how their power is impacting others and the results on the organization and society.

Next week's SQT (Spring Quick Tip); the Hint: when precedent and tradition is the driving force, what could possibly go wrong!?

I'm building a coaching element into my "Resilience: it takes Grit" course. I want to play with a few of my ideas on how to design a coaching element. Could this be great for you?  I've decided to invite 5 clients between now and the end of this calendar year who specifically want to focus on developing greater resilience in their lives. What's in it for you? Reduced rates for my coaching time in exchange for your input/feedback on how my tools and approaches are supporting your ability to be more resilient.

What am I doing these days?

  1. While you're here, learn a bit about the new course I've developed called "Resilience: it takes Grit". I've contracted to deliver the basics of this course at a few professional conferences and professional associations in 2017 and 2018 and I plan to deliver the course in both classroom environments and on-line starting in late 2018.
  2. I continue to work with experienced leaders who are transitioning and aspiring leaders who are seeking to build their leadership acumen in conversation.
  3. ON YOUR MARK...™ is ImpactBank's signature system for leaders in transition. 
  4. Culture4Breakfast - I'm working with leaders and your organization to understand you current culture, figure out what needs to change to be and do better AND learn to experiment constantly to continuously improve.

Whether it's about systems or leadership skills, my mission is to help senior leaders make their workplace more productive, inclusive and innovative.

If you think I can help, contact me for a conversation and we can explore further.
