You get paid to think

By |August 22nd, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

It was a profound moment when my boss said, “Renie, stop hoping I will congratulate you on a job well done. You need to understand that I pay you to think and the fact that you did is an acknowledgment of you doing your job!”

Harsh? Well, maybe a little. It was a big pill to swallow […]

Are you that one person?

By |August 15th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

It only takes one person to inspire many…
Be that person!

Leaders dare to do what others won’t

Leaders inspire us to see something we would otherwise not see

Leaders know that where there is connection people will follow and fanatically engage

Leaders know that if they want others to play all in, they must lead the way

Leaders […]

This one is personal

By |August 8th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|1 Comment

I am going through some personal changes right now and I have to tell you I really hate the discomfort. I dislike that feeling of fear or disappointment looming nearby… of not having things the way I want them (aka, the way I think they should be!). Quite honestly from my perspective—the easy way! I really […]

Stagnation is destruction

By |August 1st, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

I find the fear of change an interesting challenge. The real fear is not changing.  Stagnation and the status quo are the enemies… and not just in business or as a leader. This is true as a human being too!

How you lead change and the culture you create around it is how people embrace it. If […]

Watch the Weather

By |July 25th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

Similar to a meteorologist showing you weather on its way—and its potential impact—business intelligence indicators predict winds of change. Yes, weather patterns change and in your business, things change at a moment’s notice. It gets cloudy and sometimes stormy, and the thing about weather is that it always passes.

So do challenging times!

Strategic leaders utilize the weather (the […]

The obstacle course

By |July 18th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

As a leader,  you want to focus on clearing obstacles every day. Remove them from your team’s path so they can stay on course. Obstacles can be a lack of tools, ineffective equipment, or levels of incompetency. And they can be less tangible than that…

The single biggest threat to your team’s productivity and overall effectiveness is […]

Brand Relevance: My 4 Truths

By |July 11th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

If you do not have a solid brand architecture that everyone on your team understands and is aligned with, you can bet your brand will be diluted. Diluted brands are not relevant. Be vigilant in protecting your brand—both today and as it evolves.


Ultimately, your customers tell you what your brand is—via why, how, and what […]

Stressed leaders are bad leaders

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

Just ask me… been there, done that!
I get it. We have deadlines. We depend on people to do what we ask. To deliver what they are responsible for. To make things happen. Now, thank you!
I once had a boss who said,
“Renie, this job would be great if it weren’t for the people!”
Well, in most businesses, […]

If it feels wrong…

By |June 27th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

When you feel that something is wrong…
and you see that something is wrong…
Odds are, something is wrong!

It is where knowledge, experience, focused listening, and your gut (mind, body, and soul) all come together to tell you what you need to know. I’ve always had good intuition though I have not always listened to it! I […]

Growth in Disguise

By |June 20th, 2017|Aspire Leadership Tips|0 Comments

It hurts.
It doesn’t matter if it is emotional pain, physical pain, spiritual or financial pain. It stings.

Yet pain is the way we grow. Without pain, we live in the status quo. We evolve through pain. We learn from it. We find humility and acceptance in it.

Our potential is on the other side of pain.

There […]
