As a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, I’m a committed student of talents, strengths, and even weaknesses.  My personal mission is to serve leaders choosing to focus on developing their unique potential, to build super hero strengths to do great things.  Long after they’ve taken the CliftonStrengths Assessment, and we’ve debriefed each theme looking at the pixels connecting them to more wins, our...

As a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, I willingly admit, I wonder if Don Clifton knew how his idea of "focusing on what is right about people," would significantly impact the world to the profound sense that it has.  Maybe he knew and maybe he didn't.  What I believe he did realize and knew beyond a shadow of doubt was that every individual is unique and endowed with unending talent.  Call it pot...

Time is one of the most precious commodities.  And like money, we never seem to have enough.  I wish I could tell you coaching will add an extra day to your week.  I can't promise that.  But, I can share when you become more aware of exactly where you are in life, this adjusts your focus.  In fact it's often a jolt, especially if we haven't taken a good look at where we are lately simply because w...

I'll be the first to admit, "I can be difficult."  But, one thing I know, once I get it, I'm good.  It's not that I intentionally mean to be stubborn or difficult.  I have the best intentions in mind.  But as good as my intentions are, I still harm myself in ways I never imagined or intended.

A recent example to explain.  Please stay with me, there is a leadership point in all of this, I promise.

Too busy trying to make life work, our needs go by the way side. Life wasn't meant to be lived this way. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs suggests we are motivated to fulfill our basic needs. When one is met, we move on to the next.   As a result our needs are continually changing.
What motivated you five years ago, may not be what's motivating you today.  What is important to you in each of the fi...

"For anyone to relate to you, they have to know you.  If you don't assert who you are in a relationship the other person never really knows you.  The relationship either falls apart or fails to develop." Williams/Thomas, Total Life Coaching

Taking the time to define the best YOU, is the perfect way to be able to offer more in all your relationships.  But, you're busy with life.  You're tr...

Where have you been? Where are you now? Where do you want to go?

Growth depends on how well we can answer the above…

When it comes down to it, the very answers have more influence on the direction we are going than we often would like to admit.  I have found myself overwhelmed and stumped by all three.

Each time I’m forced to answer, I move a little closer to realizing just how important it is for me...

Are there people at work or in your life that you pretend to like. We all have pretended to some extent. It might have worked before, but now that you're a leader...there's a better way.  

Besides people can see right through us when we just pretend to like them.  

What if there was a way that we could learn to, maybe not initially love…but at least begin to unders...

Paging the morning paper, my eyes landed in the middle of the page.  Smack dab on what was a picture of Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore and Larry Matthews (the bratty little kid) from a 1965 episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Honestly, I grew up watching this show…Ok so now you know how old I am.

Carl Reiner, created, produced and wrote many of these shows, based on his life.  My eyes wandered to th...

What's so important about "Quick Notes?" 

When I think of writing, it has to be quick; and when I think of notes, I travel back in time.  I think of all times in life when someone tucked a piece of paper right where I'd eventually find it...and their words changed me, brightened my day, and made me realize how much I was valued.  Notes make us feel special.  Quick ones sent in the spur of the momen...
