When you hear the word ‘simplify’, does it beckon images of bygone days? The days when you languished in the summer sun as a kid, catching fireflies? For me, it does. As a small town rural girl at heart, living between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, I know all about traffic, distraction and complex living. As a business owner, entrepreneur and idea person, I know all about the necessity of timing, priority and focus. Does this graphic look and feel all too familiar? I bet it does. If you are a leader in a church, business or non-profit you are probably like many of my business owner clients, who can directly relate to this visual. At a deep level, so many leaders feel … Continue Reading

I much prefer the term Change Leadership to change management. There has never actually been any proven method of change ‘management’. We can’t MANAGE change. Change happens and it happens daily. In today’s fast and furious economy, it happens at a frenetic pace. Recently I went to redeem a gift card at a popular (And always busy) women’s clothing chain, and as I drove up to the store, they were gone! Doors closed. Store out of business. Tumbleweed tossed about by the winds of change. Another business statistic to add to the lists, and my gift card is now worth nothing. Wow, in our economy, you can’t even count on gift card credit, so use those Christmas gift cards STAT, … Continue Reading
Read any leadership book on the shelves and they will speak of time management, influence, habits, values, and a number of other factors that make up a leader. There are irrefutable laws, qualities, habits, rituals, priorities, mastery steps, blueprints and programs. And they are all great! Since 1998, as an executive leader in corporations, and as an entrepreneur and now church planter, I’ve been consuming as much of this world as I can. Since 2005, I’ve been teaching, training, coaching and consulting in leadership, in both the ministry and in the marketplace. It’s a passion – a hobby and a joy to help others rise up to where they want to go and to finish what they started. But the … Continue Reading
Linda Goff shares her secrets (and a lot of them!) in her book, The Skinny Budget Diet. No pun intended, but there is a ton of meat in this book. You could even look at it as a comprehensive compendium of multiple ideas that have worked for Linda’s significant documented weight loss and can work for you too. Linda Goff struggled with morbid obesity and was even turned down for gastric bypass surgery. At the end of her rope, she made a change and that change really became many little changes incorporated over time to help her lose over 150 pounds. When I first received the book (compliments of Charisma House (Siloam) publishers, I expected, from intriguing title, a book … Continue Reading
So, I don’t know what it is you are going through. But whatever it is, I’m sure you can click a link here and search and google to try to find answers. You can strive, pray and try to fix it yourself. You can also decide: Decide to have faith in God and walk it out knowing all things will work out eventually for the good. Or, you can decide to give up. On God, that is. If you are in the second camp and feeling weary in your leadership and vision casting, before you give up know this: God has a plan to strengthen you. He always does, and he does it many times through people in your life. … Continue Reading
A wow of a video. Looks Aren’t Everything It’s important. We can’t deny it. From the way we look, to our blog design, to our corporate images to ‘attract’ the right client. A final rhetorical question: What do you think God has to say about image? Be healed. Be yielded. Be empowered. And Be grateful for who you are. Focus more on the content you need to deliver, then how you present it. Both are important, but keep most important, most important.
“We cannot lead others to engagement if we ourselves are not 100% committed. There can be no gray area in our mission & our resolve” An engaging leader is one who acts in full integrity and character. So which comes first? Integrity or character. The answer is integrity, first a sense of wholeness. Who you are as a leader inside matters. It’s integrity – being the same around all people and in all situations, that is a key character trait. But character, is the quality of a leader that stands firm outwardly. People do what people see. Leadership by example in terms of leadership engagement is critical. First, who do you lead? Who are your teams? Perhaps you don’t have … Continue Reading
