Practice Makes Permanent. It's how your brain works! You embed habits and practices by repetition. When Browning shared this while covering figure skating in the Olympics, he was referencing muscle memory and YET, using this principle in every part of our lives, including leadership, is healthy and effective.

You will be more prepared, primed I suppose, to see opportunities and respond more effectively to opportunities and the needs of people reporting to you. 

This week's Quick Tip: map your day - routinize the elements that are the underlying support systems - establish checks and balance points to expand your capacity to rise to the occasion when the circumstances require it.

Next week's SQT (Spring Quick Tip); the Hint: get comfortable being uncomfortable as a leader WHILE making everyone else feel at home. REALLY.

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.
