Reach for Courage when Confidence is Unavailable

 

 

 We all have courage and the ability to pull that courage from within.  When we reach for courage, take action and evaluate, not only do we receive feedback but we gain confidence.  This is incredible, time and resource saving feedback towards continuing in the direction towards your goals and dreams.

Other Peoples' Opinions

Sometimes our brains want to trust others more than ourselves. We look outside of ourselves for validation of how good or how bad we are. The praise may feel great and the criticism terrible. Either way, when we rely on others' opinions, we are giving up the power and control that is naturally ours.

How today is supposed to go....

Today I am feeling disappointed... If the world was not suffering from a pandemic, I would grab my festival chair, blanket, sunscreen, wet wipes, cash and head to the Fairgrounds for day 1 of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.  I would walk or ride my bike.  I would excitedly head toward the stage  that would serve as...

LISTEN to Lead Method

I developed the LISTEN to Lead Method to emphasize the importance of both the action of listening and the benefits of listening in a whole-istic approach to leadership that takes into account the whole person. See the old addage of "leave your life at home and your work at work" is just not feasible. We are human and we carry all of us around...

Today I lost my coffee....

This morning I lost my coffee. Every morning I start by brewing a cup of coffee in my Keurig, and while the coffee is brewing, I feed my girls. Then, while they are eating, I enjoy my coffee in the living room. After getting them all set, I go to grab my coffee and it is not there. I look all over the kitchen. I look in the living room in case...

Serve as a Leader

I often talk about the S in the LISTEN to Lead Method which is to Serve.  As a leader we serve our people, our mission and our business. I have had clients push back thinking "to serve"  people is somehow something you would not do as a boss. It always makes me so curious.  But the thoughts I hear are related to doing the work...

Fear

Yesterday started out as a bad day. Our dog park is closed so we went to another area that is fenced in where I discovered one of my fur babies has a gash in her side. I have no idea how this could happen between home, the 6 minute drive and the five minutes we’ve been at the park. As I call the vet, someone inadvertently opens one side of...

If You Can't Be Confident, Be Courageous

We all struggle with confidence now and then.  I remember being a new leader and feeling excited and limitless.  I was so ready to be a great manager and enjoy my higher salary and benefits.   And then I was almost immediately hit with a moment of panic wondering "Can I really do this?".  All of a sudden the flood gates...
