The Gift of Growth

The capacity to grow and change is a gift. A gift to our current and future selves.  When we expand our minds, we expand our horizons and therefore our possibilities.  With the ability to change comes the potential that what appeared impossible before may suddenly become possible. The gift of growth and change can come from three places in our lives: internal (ourselves), external (others), or circumstantial (events).

How to Get Promoted

How to Get Promoted

When you want to get a promotion or move to the next level in your organization, it is critical to position yourself as a strong candidate for the role.  Just being good at your current job isn’t enough.  Consider what your boss or the hiring manager looks for when deciding who to promote, and translate those needs into specific actions you can take to increase your chances of success.

Inspire Action

Why is it that we do what we do, why we reach for a dream or a goal or a vision?  What drives us?  And what is it that inspires others to take action in the same direction?  This last question is key for business leaders, entrepreneurs, those dedicated to a cause, or anyone who wants to inspire change.

Don't Let Beliefs Hold You Back

You may know the story of the four-minute mile.  For years, the fastest runners in the world could not run the mile in less than four minutes.  Everyone therefore believed it could not be done.  When Roger Bannister ran the mile in 3 minutes 59 seconds in 1954, it seemed an earth-shattering feat. Within 46 days, another great runner, John Landy, had also broken the 4-minute threshold.  And by the end of 1957, sixteen runners had recorded sub-four-minute miles.  As soon as people let into their thoughts and their beliefs that it could be done, it was. Over and over.
