For those of you who have followed me for part (or all) of this two-year blogging  journey, you will know that I am having the time of my life!

Here’s why:

  1. Help others
  2. Share my message
  3. Meet incredible people
  4. Promote and share other’s content
  5. Learn from fellow bloggers
  • If you are currently blogging, why are you loving it?
  • If you are you on the verge of blogging, what are you most looking forward to?

Let’s connect!

Please keep me posted on your blogging journey. I will be posting some success stories!

The Five Star 5 – See, Leadership Can Be Simple!

Sometimes as leaders, coaches, or people of influence in general, we over think how to motivate teams.

Several times last year, my son’s hockey team of 4 and 5 year olds had one hour power skating lessons. I was amazed by the instructor’s ability to keep them interested the entire time, even with sessions as early as 6 am on weekends!

This list should seem obvious to us all, but how many of these simple points do we miss with those that we lead?

  • Smile, encourage and be enthusiastic
  • Have fun and make them laugh
  • Know the audience, relate to them on their level
  • Be engaging – ask great questions that they will be eager to answer
  • Fully explain what you want them to do. Leave nothing to the imagination
