Several years ago, (when I was still in the Air Force), I received the worst “butt-chewing” of my life…ironically, it turned into 4 of the Greatest Leadership Tips I’ve ever received!  It was the worst because it deeply impacted me…and it was the greatest because of the leadership lessons I learned from it.  Certain moments in our lives can be both bad and great…many times all it takes is a little reflection to realize the “great” side.  Let me explain.

Don't Call Me!

I had an interesting conversation with Dan about emailing versus a phone call.  He was amused I had spent quite a bit of time emailing back and forth with my dear sister-in-law.  He said I used to just pick up the phone.  True enough. Then he asked, "Do you speak better with your fingers or your lips?" Without hesitation I said, "My fingers!" He was surprised I responded like that so readily.  I explained that my true gifting lies in writing.

He ought to know. Many…

Three Cashflow Hacks to Improve Your Business

Finding, getting, and then keeping customers may be the three hardest jobs for any small, medium or large business.

If everyone agrees, I bet we can then say number four is managing cash. “What cash?” is not an appropriate come back. At least I hope it’s not.

Since managing cash is high on the list, I have worked many years on making this daunting task be as simple as possible through just a few simple hacks. These hacks are from real life examples with my own client base. And…

Decluttering – Personal vs. Common Space

When you are just beginning your decluttering process, it can be overwhelming to decide where to start first.  What’s most important?  Common spaces where everyone gathers and contributes to the mess?  Places that guests see?  The overflowing pile of papers in your office that distracts you from the work you need to be getting done?  Or the heaps of clothes and toiletries in your bathroom and closet?

I find with decluttering that leading by example is often the best way to go.  (…

God, I have made a step of obedience, where are you?


We live in a culture where we want immediate results. I enjoy watching tv shows - or movies with drama - the "whodunnits" - the crime shows. It is amazing from the committing of the crime to the arrest and conviction generally  takes under an hour - and sometimes as little as 30 minutes. I like that.

When I start a diet, I find myself stepping on the scale the next morning to see what progress I have made - and being disappointed I am not five pounds down or am a…

Okay, okay. I didn’t mean to get your knickers in a knot…

You would think I had let the dog loose and didn’t put up reward signs… I’m sorry if you wanted more in the last blog post about change, but it would have been soooo long and I actually wanted to give you some time to think about what I said.

In reality, you should know I wouldn’t leave you just floundering in how to create and manage change for your business, right?

So I am not going to beat around the bush any more –…

5 Steps to get Your Team to Love Change


You often hear and think how horrible change is; however, if you count the amount of changes you go through each day (or week), it becomes obvious that you actually like (or love) changes…or at least you love the changes that you choose to implement.  With that in mind, organizational change is not much different.  What if you can convince your people to choose to implement the changes throughout your organization?  If they can see changes within the organization as a…
