OUR WORDS MATTER

By |2022-07-14T11:42:22-05:00July 14th, 2022|Blogs|

Humans speak their first fully-formed words sometime between 9–12 months of age. It’s a big deal, delighting our parents and launching us into the world of interactive communication. For the rest of our lives, words are the foundation of (almost) everything we do. Psychologist and author Dr. Jordan Peterson says, “If you can think, speak, and write, you are absolutely deadly. Nothing can get in your way.” If Dr. Peterson is right, then why are we so often inattentive to, and careless with, the manner in which we use our words? There are lots of possible [...]

THE COACHING CHALLENGE

By |2022-06-14T17:49:07-05:00June 14th, 2022|Blogs|

As one responsible for a business's profitability, I never seem to have the time to coach my people consistently.

In late October 1996, the Fighting Irish arrived in Dublin, Ireland to prepare for the first-ever Shamrock Classic – a November 2 football game between Notre Dame and the United States Naval Academy. During their time in Ireland, the team was able to do some sightseeing. One of their stops was a 12th-century cemetery. Coach Holtz said, “All we saw were dilapidated walls and huge tombstones.” Holtz would soon learn that Maiden saw something very different. Maiden was so moved [...]

Continuous Advancement & Perpetual Growth

By |2022-04-12T16:54:23-05:00April 12th, 2022|Blogs|

One the surface, strongest value propositions a leader can give to an employee is the ability for that individual to perpetually grow in all dimensions. Obvious dimensions include professionally as well as personally, but do not overlook the importance of financial, mental, and spiritual growth as well. In nature, plants either grow or decompose; they do not stay the same. In an organization, nourishment is supplied by the broad term of training, but a more accurate term is learning. What is being done within your organization to foster learning, growth, and new perspectives each week? It [...]

Clear Direction: Even the most motivated employees need [...]

By |2021-01-19T10:41:51-06:00January 19th, 2021|Blogs|
