How to become a POWERFUL Leader with 5 Simple Questions

Years ago, I was leading a team and one of my staff was always showing up late. I was frustrated by this because we had a front reception office that needed to be opened right at 8am.

While this one employee wasn't the receptionist, they were responsible for supervising that position. And when the receptionist wasn't able to make it into work because of being sick or an appointment, this other employee had to fill in.

The issue was that I tend towards giving my team space and freedom because as a high-achieving, self-motivated person, that's what I enjoy too. But the front office was being left empty on the occasional day that the receptionist didn't come in and their supervisor wasn’t in the office either.

This ended up reflecting badly on all of us, including the broader organization since we were a community-facing government office... all because of how I was showing up (or more accurately, NOT showing up) as a leader.

So instead of being frustrated and angry, I...

Leadership Mastery Roadmap

 

The Leadership Mastery Roadmap represents the 9 stages every Leader will need to master on the road to success in leadership, business & life. 

I created this framework after coaching hundreds of clients in various leadership roles, career transitions and business scenarios (like you) in my coaching programs.

When you understand the levels of the Leadership Mastery Roadmap, you can put your time and energy into what you know will create the momentum you need to grow and scale to the next level.

IN ORDER TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND WHAT TO FOCUS ON TO GET THERE, YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE.

What are the steps/stages to lifestyle/leadership mastery?

This roadmap is broken down into 9 steps each building on the previous step. This is to demonstrate the importance of a strong foundation to the next layers on the mastery journey.

There are three stages of the journey:

The Power of Setting Intentions - For the New Year

The Power of Setting Intentions

As we enter into the new year, what are you focusing on?

 

So it’s a new year, have you set your intentions for your BEST YEAR YET? One of the tips I shared in the planning series was to set an intention for a theme for the new year.

 

Mine is focused on FOUNDATIONS for 2019. While my first response to that coming up in a dream over the holidays was… really?! That isn’t glamourous or sparkly or exciting. Buuuuut, I can see how it will set me up for awesomeness!

My values are relationships with myself and others, health & wellness, excellence & leadership plus creativity.

So when I was tuning into my intention (or theme) for the year... with the goal of improving my health, growing my family and coaching business while having a positive impact on the world, FOUNDATIONS was the word that came to me. 

I know that focusing on the foundation of my life, there will be a solid base to build on in the future.

Top Time Mindset Tips to THRIVE!

What is a “time mindset”?

A time mindset is basically what you think about how much time you have, how you use it, whether you believe you’re always early or late about things.

Your mindset is what goes on internally that keeps you doing things the way you do.

As a mindset coach, I have found that a small shift in how you see things can have a MASSIVE difference in your life.

For example, if you find yourself always missing deadlines, rushing to get to appointments, late to meetings, etc… this can be switched by choosing to believe that you already have more than enough time to get everything done and be early for appointments.

This article will cover the top 3 challenges to your time mindset and provide some practical tools to use to shift gears into a mindset where you have an abundance of time for everything that matters to you!

Because I totally believe we can do everything we want and need to do with minimal suffering and struggle… it just...

BEST YEAR YET Planning Series

Blending both brain & heart to make your Dreams & Goals a Reality!

 

I’m SO excited to share my BEST YEAR YET Planning Series with you! It’s a simple, yet super effective 6 step process that will help you plan out your upcoming year to reach your goals and dreams with ease, joy and massive progress without burnout!

Whether or not you’re a passionate planner like me, this process is made to be simple, approachable and to bring together both the brain, planning & goal-setting side of you with your more intuitive, creative and emotional, dreaming side.

 

 

Head & Heart = Best of Friends!

All brain and no heart leaves it passion-less and can end up feeling more like you’re adding a bunch of “shoulds” to your to-do list without enough soul to keep you inspired.

And all heart but no planning can leave you feeling up in the clouds...

Are you in SURVIVE Mode or THRIVE Mode?

The Thrive Matrix: What Is It & How to Use it?

Are you full of extra energy, inspiration and enthusiasm for life, leadership and business?

Or do you feel like you are you running on empty, broken down and needing serious repairs?

I have been in both spots at various stages of my career, business and personal life.

I know what it’s like to feel like everything is flowing, opportunities, ideas and synchronicity are popping up everywhere, you’re soaring and on top of the world. I call this THRIVE Mode.

And I also know what it’s like to feel lost, hopeless, rushing everywhere, forgetting things, dropping things and barely managing to keep up with work and life. I call this SURVIVE Mode.

Today, I have good news. You don’t have to stay in survive mode for long… You can get to THRIVE mode using my THRIVE Matrix!

And if you are currently THRIVING, this tool will help you spend more and more of your time there!

Why a Seasonal Reset is Crucial to your Success in Life, Leadership & Business

Taking the time to reset with the season is crucial to your life and Leadership success.

This allows you to reconnect to your bigger purpose, vision, goals and dreams. Plus it provides you a structure and strategic planning time quarterly for you to stay focused on the bigger picture.

Without this strategic view, you can easily get lost in your day-to-day to-do list, caught in details and transactional needs and forget what's really important!

It's like checking your internal life, leadership and business GPS to see if you're still on track to where you want to go or NOT.

Checking in will then re-inspire you, help you to see what obstacles might be in your way and address anything that may not be going as planned. By doing this regularly, you make massive progress, overcome obstacles more quickly and become more productive all with more and fun!

 

Busy or Just Not Aligned?

#1 Secret to 10x your Productivity (without burning out & skipping bathroom breaks)

As a High-Achieving, Visionary leader, you are often overworked, overly ambitious (though you hate being called that) and over-tired.

But I am here to share with you my #1 Secret to 10x your Productivity (without burning out or skipping bathroom breaks!)

As a high-achieving leader myself, I understand what you’re going through. I have taken on more than my share of workload repeatedly in most of the roles in my career. At one point, I was replaced by three staff to do the work I was carrying on my own for years. I did this because:

  • I wanted more experience, to learn more, to be challenged, to grow and stretch to progress.
  • Plus honestly, I knew I could do it all, and more! (that’s the high-achieving voice talking, of course!)
  • And one of the times I took on extra duties was due to a shortage of staff and money to hire new personnel so we had to make do. (But honestly, this has been a tendency of mine, my whole life!)

And for a while this can go well, but eventually...

Weekend Unwind Idea: Time to Journal

The Sweet time for Self-Reflection & Time to Journal...


If you'd like more support with creating your unique lifestyle where this kind of approach to your life with intention and time to EXHALE is your new lifestyle, then please check out my course that starts in less than two weeks...

This weekend, I encourage you to take time to unwind a bit and pick up your favourite journal, a special pen and some iced tea... then spend some time to journal, unwind, reconnect to yourself and inspire :)

I have journalled for years now, sometimes every day, other times just on weekends and every time it is such a gift!

There was a period of time when I would journal every morning for 30 minutes before starting my day. I was following the daily exercises in the book "The Artist's Way" that recommends you write to fill 3 pages in a stream-of-consciousness approach... it was a stretch at first to fill the pages, especially in a new journal where I used to savour them and not want to mark the...
