Business Owners: Being a Weed Instead of Flower
Flowers are beautiful! I love flowers, in fact we have flowers in our house probably once a month on average we love them so much. And in the summer, I have a flower bed in my front yard that I like to fill with all sorts of bright and rare coloured petals. When I was weeding my flower bed this summer I had the thought about how I wished that the weeds would stop coming back so often and that the flowers would grow just as fast. But in that moment I learned to have an appreciation for the tenacity of weeds. Later that day I came across this quote by Doug Larson, "A weed is a plant that has mastered all survival skills except for learning how to grow in rows." What a beautiful thought. This is what being a business owner is like. You must be tenacious, work hard, keep showing up... read more ❯

Avoid the Pitfalls of "THIS" Interview Question
"So, tell me about yourself?" This question may seem unimportant. So many people pass over it without much thought or they start to talk about where they are from and what they currently or most recently did for work. However, you could be missing a really important opportunity. Suzy Welch, CNBC Contributor and best selling author, recently published a video on how to answer that pesky question, "Tell me about yourself" during the job interview process. Welch says that your the potential employer is looking to see, "maturity and authenticity" showing that you are "self-aware and empathetic." She suggests telling the story of your life while relating it back to the job. In my experience working as both a recruiter and a career coach, most interviewers and employers actually aren't paying that much attention to the answer to this question, but are rather using it to establish rapport (a huge miss on... read more ❯
C-Suite Lacking in Leadership?
Note: This article contains 1,262 words and 1 image, with an estimated read time of 5 minutes. In business, one of the most important deciding factors in success stems from leadership. However, senior executives within the workplace – referred to as C-Suite for the highest executives in a business – tend to fail when it comes to ‘walking the walk’ and taking action. While most executives are full of great ideas and suggestions, many fall flat when it comes to putting them into action. Over the years, I’ve worked with many business leaders who have become frustrated by the fragmented vision and purpose of their business. When executives lose that desire to engage and to stay with the philosophy, it’s only common that problems will occur. No matter how much money is spent on employee engagement and development, if the orders from the top aren’t of a suitable standard then nothing will improve. C-Suite... read more ❯

Your Perception is Not Reality!
We have often heard the phrase "perception is reality". None of us see the world as it actually is. No. In fact, we see the world as we actually are. We are full of our own biases and, quite frankly, sometimes we get stuck in those biases believing that they are absolute truth. There is an incredible book called "The Undoing Project" by Michale Lewis that talks about a friendship between two men, two psychologists, who helped the world change it's mind about our own biases. I recently wrote a poem that speaks to this truth about perception not being reality. See the world as real? Impossible. But see it only as you are. The world you see is the person you are. Don't like the world you see? Change who you are. The dark world I saw was because of who I was. The light world I see is because of who I became. I do not see the... read more ❯

Maze or Meander…. Walking the Labyrinth of Life
I was speaking to a friend recently who was planning to walk a Labyrinth in the UK. Walking labyrinths is an ancient custom. In them, you walk an intricate combination of paths or passages in which it is difficult to find one's way, or to reach the exit. This piqued my interest and upon reading up on Labyrinth’s, I came to realize the correlation between Labyrinth’s and life as we experience it. There are two types of Labyrinths: a Maze, with repeatedly dividing paths, forcing the traveler to choose among options, some of which may be dead ends, while others double back on themselves, so that the traveler has no assurance of ever reaching the goal and is constantly faced with decisions and frustrations, but also may experience the relief and surprise of having made the right choices leading to the goal; or a Meander, with a single, undivided path and no... read more ❯
When Do You Know if it’s Training or Competence?
Employee learning and development is important and vital to any organization. It not only provides benefit to the individual but also to the business, helping your company to continue to run effectively. However, once you have provided initial job training with a new employee is there a need for any further learning and development investment? Yes! Initial training should only be the first step of a longer-term learning process. Regular learning and development is well worth the investment, because building up the knowledge, skills and working relationships within your organization will effectively improve your company’s bottom line. With a quality learning and development plan in place, you are sure to see your return on investment. Without this investment, you are sure to see the effects of a disengaged team; conflict in the workplace, higher turnover, low retention, and inconsistency in service. Employers cannot expect as the organization evolves that their employees’ abilities,... read more ❯
