Most of us aren't taught to be bold. Many are even taught to fear the consequences of being too bold. It’s no wonder so many people refrain from leading or from being a leader in this world. http://buff.ly/1kk9gIf

And you, just like a gardener, 
Can choose which seeds y...

The notion of leading without a title has gained ground, yet the grip of past interpretations of what it means to be a leader continue to have a tight grip on many organizational cultures, not only in education, but in business and government as well. http://buff.ly/N5aI6u

The ability to recognize the difference between processing and reflecting can give you the power to shift your attention, from trying to alter a past you cannot change, to curating insight and wisdom that can contribute to your future success.
In The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth John Maxwell illuminates the importance of learning to pause to allow growth to catch up with you. He refers to this as the Law of Reflection. There is another h...

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, it’s customary for us to shower the ones we love with affection, attention and, of course, gifts. But hearts, flowers and candies aside, there is one very special gift we can give to absolutely anyone who matters to us...

Being trustworthy is an act of effective self-leadership.  Giving others a genuine opportunity to gain your trust even though they may falter, however, is an act of great leadership. http://wp.me/p339ZO-1Vf
To effectively cultivate trust we must recognize that trust is more than just a feeling.  It is an assessment we make, either consciously or unconsciously, regarding the extent to which we can coun...

At the heart of every successful change initiative, both personal and professional, is a well constructed plan.

Susan Brown sums this up neatly with "Defining the Goals", "A Simple Plan", and "Measuring ROI". 

Easy to prescribe, hard to do well.

Introduction
Originally from NY, I have lived in PA, NJ and now Florida.  I am passionate about helping people to become the most powerful expression of themselves in life and work and choosing to live a life they love.  Married for 14 years to the love of my life, we have a daughter who continues to amaze me and two adorable little dogs.  My favorite things to do are body surf and downhill ski because there is nowhere I feel freer and more exhilerated than in the ocean or on the slopes.  With a passion for learning and a love of writing I write a blog on leadership, co-authored a book and am now working on my own.  On occasion I write poetry and songs, remembering fondly my time long ago on the coffee house scene.
