This past weekend, I cleaned out some cabinets in my kitchen. As I was sorting through things I wanted to keep or donate to the local Mission, I began to wonder how I got so many things.
You know how you find things in the very back of your cabinets that you never, ever use? [...]
One of the things that I find with people that I work with in my coaching practice is their need to be “right”. It seems more prevalent with managers and leaders, because they feel as though people expect them to have all the answers. They’re the boss, right? So they MUST know everything!
I’d like [...]
In my business coaching practice, I’m often dealing with people who are great at beginning projects, but have difficulty finishing them. It is very common for people to say to me that they are ineffective at bringing task to completion because they enjoy the starting process so much more.
