Hi Meaningful Leader, A few months ago I published an article titled, This is Why Leaders Shouldn’t be Nice, in which I wrote about how important it is for leaders to not only provide timely and specific feedback to their team members, but also how to do it in a way that is constructive and […]
Achieving success can be a difficult and uncertain journey. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut of worrying, doubting, and struggling to make progress; not to mention all the second guessing and overthinking
Are you a struggling manager who feels like you’re constantly drowning in everyday demands from your organization, responsibilities and team? This one’s for you…
There’s so much value in the lessons we learn when we transition from individual success to serving and leading others successfully. Messi is truly an unprecedented leader that has demonstrated consistently the value of embracing the strength of teamwork. He led Argentina to win this amazing achievement and did it through consistency and discipline. We can all learn from Messi, especially those of us that have a deep passion for the game!
Emotional regulation in a nutshell, is the self-awareness and effective management of our own emotions and how these project onto others.
Saying thank you has a powerful effect. Of course we get paid for the work we do daily, but being seen, heard and acknowledge with gratitude and appreciation is what we all as human beings aim for.
never hold on to a thank you I can give because I know how much positive impact it can have on the recipient and the world needs more grateful people.
When it comes to productivity and time management, procrastination can be the biggest culprit of ineffectiveness and inefficiency, but the roots lie deeper than just a wondering mind and its associated distractions. Procrastination is the hideaway place for deeper issues rooted in fear and insecurity.
I have stopped using perfectionism as a crutch to justify my fear of criticism and my lack of self-confidence, and instead have combined my love for continuous improvement to put out great, imperfect work each day and keep working consistently into perfecting my craft.
Having a huge dream can feel intimidating and unfortunately, many people quit on their dreams and settle for less, because they don’t realize how manageable an “impossible” task becomes the moment we start moving just one little step forward towards achieving it.
I’m a firm believer on the power of compounding and little daily wins over time, turn into huge conquered mountains. One example of this is the book I wrote. I put down ideas, an outline, concepts, quotes for a period of months. I copied and repasted my ideas, moved them around and reframe them, but I also deleted chunks of paragraphs. Yet from all the brain dumps I had over a period of nine months, a cohesive structure for my book was born. Writing a book sounds like a huge goal to achieve, yet writing a few paragraphs each day, was super manageable.
