7-Day Smartphone Detox!

Are You Addicted to Your Smartphone?

These days we joke about having ADD (Addiction to Digital Devices).
Yet, in all seriousness, how addicted are you and are you willing to detox?

Leaders and life-long learners are always willing to lift off the blinders and create
new habits. Why not take the 7-day challenge to take control of your life and not
let your smartphone control you.

Self Evaluation!















The “Future” is Here!

Daniel Goldman offers 4 essential leader talents: Motivation, Curiosity, Engagement and Determination. Yep, we agree. Leaders must think big and act bold. They need to be open, interested, and willing to stretch and learn. Leaders need to inspire through emotional and intellectual appeals. And they must be willing to gut it out and keep the vision alive even when it’s difficult to do so.

All are essential talents. But we think there is a fifth essential talent, “Asking.” #Peter Drucker is famous for saying “The leader of the past knows how to tell. The leader of today and the future knows how to ask.”

In this 24/7 non stop information age, leaders will succeed if they collaborate and know how to draw the best out of others, asking is a critical skill.

So the question becomes, how do you develop these 5 essential talents? We think great leaders self-evaluate weekly. On Monday morning review the list, keep it top of mind. On Friday self-evaluate, how did you do in each of these areas?

The only way to advance your leadership muscle is to use it, work it and push it.

Self-evaluation is a great way to hold yourself accountable.

Scare Away the Darkness


In memory of Robin Williams, let us all be ever so vigilant of scaring away the darkness.

This song reminds us to “light” the way. Let’s give people the freedom to seek help before it’s too late.

We suggest you read the lyrics and then watch the video.
