What’s Your Direction?

If a friend were to ask you the question “in what direction are you headed in life,” or “where do you see yourself in the next 5 years,” how would you respond? Occasionally, whether in a coaching session or just in casual conversation, I’ll ask this question. The responses are varied, but they typically […]

What Will You Commit To Doing?

As a leadership and life coach, one of the things I seek to help others do when they contract with me is to help them move from where they are to where they say they want to be. Often, it’s about forward movement in their careers. Sometimes it’s about a desire to grow in […]

So, if you’re a millennial looking for that first job out of college, or if […]

The Story

“I just don’t understand,” Kayla insisted.  “You’re saying that because I have too many friendships at work, I’m not performing well?”

“Let me be clear,” replied Brent, Kayla’s supervisor. “I’m saying that even though you are performing well overall in meeting your goals, based on what I’ve observed you’re a bit too “chummy” with […]

What You Have to Prove to Your Employer
