Would you like a personal MBTI coaching session?

Have you ever sat down with someone to discuss your personality? How about how you get along with other people? I have had the opportunity to do this countless times over the past 2 years, but almost entirely in a group setting. The problem is that most people find it a little intimidating to sit … Continue reading Would you like a personal MBTI coaching session?

Leadership directs the mindset

What does conversion look like in your organization? We all have them. There are the larger 'A-ha!' moments that we all love to experience. Those are easier to recognize and dissect.

How do you respond to unwarranted advice?

"Don't be sorry; just don't do it again!" How would you respond to this comment from a customer? A friend? A manager? A young worker at a local establishment was given the above advice from a disgruntled customer. There was a small error done during their service, and the honourable response seemed to be to … Continue reading How do you respond to unwarranted advice?

Thank you for Leadership workshops where I get to be the Jerk

Last week was great for all the wonderful opportunities I had to walk with others in their leadership settings!

Can you afford training and development?

What are the top 2 reasons people give me for not continuing development in their current role? Time and Money. No surprise there, right? I cannot make time for you, that is something you will have to make on your own. But I may have found a way to get funding to alleviate the affordability … Continue reading Can you afford training and development?

Camp Assiniboia and the MBTI!

Thank you Camp Assiniboia! I had the priviledge of spending a day with the camp leadership team as they learned more about themselves and how they get along. There were plenty of laughs and great insights around the circle. Each person did the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and shared openly about their thoughts on their personality … Continue reading Camp Assiniboia and the MBTI!

Good Friday or Easter? Which are you?

Did someone wish you a happy Easter on Friday? Technically, they shouldn't. But it is hard to correct people when they are being so dang nice. For those who do not celebrate it as a religious holiday, they are being respectful, or they enjoy the mysterious happiness surrounding a giant candy grab (and industry for … Continue reading Good Friday or Easter? Which are you?

A lot of memories from past retreats combined with new ones made with some new friends! I was … Continue reading A great weekend at Red Rock with youth leaders

Be Kind, even without the sale

Basic civility and common kindness are integral parts of all aspects of social interaction. Business is no exception. In fact, we have great opportunity in this arena to show these things as normal behaviour. I maintain this as true. But alas, not all humanity got the memo. We are given plenty of opportunity to see … Continue reading Be Kind, even without the sale
