When the Reflection isn’t Flattering

Perhaps you remember the Fun House mirrors at the local carnival.  

Some mirrors made you appear taller, others shorter or wider.  

Distorting your face or legs in weirdly odd ways.

Why we connect to stories and how we can use them in our businesses

Once upon a time….

Four words that have a big impact on each of us. Immediately we are drawn into the possibilities or the memories those words bring to mind.

We were created for stories. When we engage in a story, our brains actually play along and interpret our being INSIDE the story. 

But in business, we don’t typically talk...

You don’t have to be cruel to be kind

Back in the late 70s, teens danced along with a pop favorite, “You have to be cruel to be kind.” 

The band got it wrong. 

As a 1 Corinthians 13 leader, leaders need to be kind but not cruel. 

I get where the song is coming from. Sometimes you do have to plainly lay out the honest truth. For example, at a recent team...

Do this OR hit the wall of complexity...

I hear this from my founder friends.  ALL.THE. TIME. 

Inevitably, they ask...

Why did I wait so long to start my team? 

They've hit the wall. Working crazy hours. Have NO life.  (And they are the boss!)

As early as possible. Even when it’s uncomfortable. In fact, it should be uncomfortable. It should feel scary to...

  • Multitasking while sitting on the couch, checking your phone, half-engaged with your family for a game night 
  • Hours upon hours researching/deciding/dreading the tasks in front of you
  • Feeling rushed just before hopping on a prospect call...

Build "For Love of Team" when you unlearn first

 

As we build our businesses, we all spend much of our time learning new skills, growing personally and professionally, and trying to figure out what we don’t know we don’t know.

But this journey towards entrepreneurship and leadership must begin with unlearning.

Historically much of what we know about management was created...

The solid "how-to" to make the cultural shift your business needs

It can feel like an employee-first AND client-first culture is just pie-in-the-sky and an impossible goal to reach. 

That’s why I was so excited to have Craig Wood from Premier International on the podcast. 

When asked about examples of HOW this combination works in real life, Craig shared a remarkable story.

First, you have to...

Making hard decisions in your business is critical to success

How much time do you spend doing work that is in your gifting? Or, to say it another way, in your Zone of Genius? Or when you are “in flow” and you look up and can’t believe how much time has slipped by?

If you’ve never considered that before...or maybe you’ve never even considered that more of your time COULD be...

Create a team you love like an Academy Award winning filmmaker did

In 1981, Raiders of the Lost Ark burst onto the screens of theaters across America. It was an updated take on the old serials with non-stop adventure and action that brought the audience along for a wild ride.
