From the Top
It's September. Along with a handful of expensive birthdays in my world (think wife AND daughter, one day apart...), it also marks the ending of Q3 2013. The year isn't done yet, but the fat lady is in rehearsal...
Start bringing a dose of reality to your 2013 plans. Abandon quickly those you are reasonably certain have decreased in priority or emphasis--they consume mental bandwidth better spent on those things you are actually pursuing or trying to achieve.
If I can help with the coaching, leadership development, compensation planning, or strategy parts of your now-high-speed efforts, you know how to reach me..
Save the dates!
Thursday, November 18th is Foundations of Successful Leadership, the kickoff session for our Pathways to Leadership 6-session program. This is the same high-level facilitation as my in-house engagements (without the homogeneity of the same group/company), and open to the public. 8:00am until noon in The Woodlands (venue announced soon). There will be a participant fee, but I'll throw in breakfast to make it a deal. More details coming...
|This month's video: Executive Consulting, I do a significant amount of individual coaching today. The best way I can describe "what makes me different," is that I consider the process much more than "Executive Coaching." It's closer to "Executive Consulting." If you need a life-coaching-semi-therapy "Dr. Phil," I'm probably not it. If you want added success in your leadership role--in both behaviors and decisions--give me a call.

He speaks... (apparently I have a message that resonates with some... who knew??)
I recently spoke to a senior staff on Emotional Intelligence. As leaders, I believe Emotional Intelligence has become a key focus. The ability to succeed with relationships, create employee engagement, and build high-performing bonds with others in the workplace is at the core of these efforts, and most can certainly see the advantage such results can bring.
