Empowerment Comes From Within

Empowerment is a term regarding a business management style where managers give staff members the power to make certain decisions within boundaries. This is a definition of empowerment: Empowerment is the process of enabling or authorizing an employee to think, behave, and take action, and control work and decision-making in autonomous way with the job tasks that […]

Becoming A Better Me

The theme of “becoming a better person” has been popping up in everything I have been reading or listening to lately.  It is a fact that most people want to better themselves on a continual basis.  It can be overwhelming as to where one should begin and also it is easy to get stuck there […]

Mastering Leadership

“The Lone Ranger would have died without Tonto.”  Leaders do not become leaders by themselves, yet so often we point out the leader failing to recognize the people who are the support team.  Those that make the difference so that the “leader” can do what is necessary to do their part in the project, the […]

Changes for Life

Change can be hard, really hard, especially if we are not prepared to make it happen. Listen to this… “90% of heart patients do not stick to the lifestyle changes their physicians state they need to make in order to live longer”  Wow, that is just amazing!  Do you think that they really want to […]

Grow Your Service Level

Brendon Burchard said, “You grow into the service level you want to provide.”  We know it is our choice how we present ourselves each day at work with our customers and coworkers. But, I think the message that Brendon is trying to get across though is that we need to make the effort to grow […]

Reversing Negative Momentum

The other day, I wrote about defining successful and how this is an individual experience.  Even though each person needs to define what success is to themselves, many have a hard time doing that.  They are stuck because of someone or something.  They can never see themselves being successful at anything. My blogging friend, Kristen Barton Cuthriell, […]

Lessons from Disney – Throw Back Thursday

Happy Thursday to you all!  Last year when I was at the Disney Hotel to present at one of the largest Podiatric Medical Conferences in the U.S. ,  I shared with you some lessons from Walt Disney.  I thought it would be great to revisit a lesson or two again this year.  I hope you enjoy […]

What? Another Meeting?

In Verne Harnish’s book “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits” he states that successful businesses have daily meetings for 5-15 minutes, which he calls huddles. He states by having these huddles you can actually save time because you are focusing on what is happening that day.  There are only three questions covered at this meeting and they […]
