Start with WHY

I'm a huge, huge fan of Simon Sinek! Great video about how "The Why" was born out of pain. The Why has been a major piece in my coaching business and personal life. That is why I incorporate it in my 4-step coaching program (uncover, create, communicate and maintain).

In step 1, I work with clients to uncover what is true and unique about them by examining what are their core values, personality type, the why and their key strengths.

Peace & Quiet

Last Sunday my wife and I spent the day at the Scandinavian Spa in Whistler. It was an amazing experience. And the best part for me was the "silence" piece (of course!) 

I appreciated how they value and understand the power of silence. There were "silence" signs literally everywhere. And what is interesting is that the guests respected that.

I was telling my wife I wish we have these signs all around the city! :D Wouldn't that be awesome?

The following passage is from their website: The value of silence - “In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness." Silence is a source of great strength. We believe silence is essential to the experience of the Scandinavian baths. By embracing silence one finds inner stillness leading to complete relaxation.

Introvert-Extrovert Spectrum

Do you know where you fall on the introvert-extrovert spectrum? Are you oriented more towards the outer world or the inner world? Do you get more energy when you are around people or by yourself?

The more preference you have towards stimulating environment the more extroverted you are and vice versa. 

Whether you fall in the extrovert or introvert category (or somewhere between), it can have a significant influence on your career choice, relationships and overall lifestyle. 

One type isn't "better" than the other. Each tendency can have benefits and drawbacks depending on the situation. By better understanding your personality, however, you can learn how to play to your strengths.

Quiet Leadership

Quiet Leadership

Who said quiet leadership is an oxymoron?

Mahatma Gandhi is one of the many quiet leaders out there. Gandhi is revered as the father of the nation by the world’s largest democracy and has been an acknowledged inspiration for many other leaders who have fought successfully for the improvement of humankind.

What is your leadership style?

Quiet Leadership Workshop

It has long been believed that the natural leaders of our society were the extroverted types, those that were outspoken, bold and assertive.

But you don't have to be LOUD to be a great leader.

A full 40% of executives describe themselves as introverts, including Bill Gates, Marissa Mayer, Guy Kawasaki, Wendy Kopp and Mark Zuckerberg. Contrary to popular opinions, introverts, not just extroverts, have the skills to lead in a fast-paced extroverted business world.

Extroverted leaders have gotten a bit too much good press, to the point that excellent introverted leaders are increasingly overlooked. You can be an impactful leader by being soft-spoken, quiet and gentle.
