What do you want your tombstone to say?

By |May 23rd, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Life is about choices. And the choices you make every day reflect your life.

Stop worrying about the bad choices! Let go of the fear that you may not be as good as others think. Fear is an illusion and when it comes to bad choices, we all make our fair share!

It isn’t the missteps that define your […]

Are you a Shiner?

By |May 16th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Shiners are the people who inspire.
They are fanatically engaged and lead as a behavior, not because of a position they may (or may not) hold. The Shiner is connected to what motivates them, seeing their work—regardless of the job and its function—as a vehicle to fulfill their own higher purpose.

As a leader, you want to understand what […]

Don’t be afraid to fire someone within 90 days.

Here’s what I have learned… a few too many times!
In 30 days, you suspect they won’t make it.
In 60 days, you know.
Pull the trigger!
It doesn’t get easier with time—only more annoying!
When you make a bad hire, you need to look at your interview process. The mistake happened before […]

I Believe in You

By |May 2nd, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Be around people who believe in you!

In my experience, it is better to have people around you who believe in you and push you toward your potential versus people who tell you everything is “fine” and aren’t really committed to you. Those “nice” people are not being kind!

I am a product of people seeing something in […]

Send in the Swans

By |April 26th, 2017|Customer Service Training|0 Comments

I’m an avid business traveler. I’m one of the few that love the hustle of the airport, the challenge to get back home when a flight is canceled, and the joy in laughable moments – like a window seat with no window. I’m lucky. I can shake my head at events that would anger and […]

Do you want people to notice your work?

Do you impact what matters most?
It isn’t just what you do; it is how you do it that gets noticed!
It’s:

The passion and effort you put in
The quality you choose to deliver
The innovation you imagine

Intention vs. Impact

By |April 4th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Your intention doesn’t matter!

You hear it all the time:
“It wasn’t my intention to…”
Most people don’t accept the reality that we are responsible for our impact, not our intention.

It may be your intention to reach your sales goals and if you don’t, the impact on others is significant. It may be your intention to be a […]

Lead through influence

By |March 28th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Face it:

Everyone leads and if they don’t, they should! We lead through our decisions. We lead through how we contribute. We lead through how we support.

Leadership is not in some of us… It is in all of us! We sometimes have the position of leadership; and we ALWAYS have the behaviors of leadership. We demonstrate leadership in how […]
