Book of the Month

This book has received rave reviews. I’m sharing several choice nuggets of wisdom from Kevin Kelly and his book, “Excellent Advice for Living. Wisdom I wish I’d known earlier

How to find self-knowledge:
“A great way to understand yourself is to seriously reflect on everything you find irritating in others.”

How to navigate your career:
“Don’t be the best. Be the only.”

How to disagree:
“Speak confidently as if you are right, but listen carefully as if you are wrong.”

How to avoid madness:
“If you are looking for something in your house and you finally find it, when you’re done with it, don’t put it back where you found it. Put it back where you first looked for it.”

Benefits of Leadership Coaching 🌟

Executive coaching enhances thought leadership, vital for career progression. Coaching sharpens communication skills and influencing abilities, crucial for effective presentations and interactions with peers and boards. Plus, it empowers self-reliance, through strategic self-awareness. Helping leaders to identify and evaluate options, and craft their own leadership path, rather than prescribing solutions. 💪📈
