Levels of Resistance

Walking an older dog can be similar to a leadership journey.

Transformation Tuesday: Levels of resistance. 

Walking my 16 year-old Bichon reminds me of a leadership journey. When my dog’s mind is open, he can walk for miles. When his mind is not open to exploring, he goes through very distinct levels of resistance. 

  • Stage One: A gentle but definitive tug on the leash to indicate his patience is wearing thin. 
  • Stage Two: A firm yank on the leash to say that this game called ‘walking’ should end. 
  • Stage Three: A full entrenchment of his heels or lying down to clearly show his cooperation is over. 

Leaders can also go through these stages of resistance: one moment they are open to feedback and new ideas, and other times they are entrenched, closed and defensive.  

Executive coaching helps leaders explore when they are in a stage of resistance and if that stage is serving them. This is just one of the many benefits of executive coaching. Interested in learning more about coaching? Let’s talk.

Leadership Legacy

Transformation Tuesday: Leadership Legacy. 

How do you want to be remembered? 

True leaders think about their leadership legacy throughout their careers, not just at the end. 

Building a transformational leadership style requires introspection, reflection on your values, building connections with others, and thoughtful planning. 

In a world filled with endless emails, reports and meetings, it can be challenging to hit the pause button- but it is time well spent. 

Working with an executive coach to define your purpose, reflect, and think through next steps just may bring the transformation you are seeking.

Full Send!

Transformation Tuesday: Send It! 

Haven’t skied since you were eight years old? No problem: Send It. 

Never skied before? No pressure: Full Send! 

100% commitment, despite the outcome. 

When is the last time nerves or self-doubt served you? Mindset matters, no matter the situation. Positive mental imagery and an uplifting internal voice can bring calm and competence to almost any challenging situation. Assuming a strength pose before a challenge can create commanding, positive energy.

The Power of a Positive Mindset

The Power of a Positive Mindset

Transformation Tuesday: Eight seconds. One pass. Many voices saying you’re passed your prime. 

So many voices could have been in Tom Brady’s head last night. But one voice appears to have dominated: we will win. Brady’s mindfulness and ability to perform under pressure, down 13 points with only three minutes on the clock against the Saints, was something to behold. Yes, Brady is still the GOAT in my eyes. 

Our mind is a powerful weapon when we use it to move us forward. Last year, Brady’s positive mindset inspired a young boy fighting cancer to believe he could win his battle against cancer. The boy did win. 

The power of positive thinking and inspiring those around us to believe just may create the sea change you are seeking. 

Which inner voice are you listening to? A voice filled with self-limiting beliefs or a voice that moves you forward?
