Connecting The Dots…

He handed me the envelope.  It was sealed, dated, and said simply Steve.  “Save this and open it when we finish our work” he said, with a slight upturned grin. 4 months earlier, Vince and I began collaborating on a strategic planning project.  Several weeks ago, he gave me this envelope.  Knowing him as well…

Committed to Achieve?

When I initially meet with my coaching clients, we complete an initial assessment.  Part of the assessment helps begin to uncover core issues for our future work together.  New clients  usually take great care to explain who they are.  However, because we have not yet built the trust required in a coaching relationship, these new…

I have people skills, I am good at dealing with people…

The Rare Leader™ is always interacting with people.  The Rare Leader™ is able to utilize intuition to sense what people are feeling and thinking.  The Rare Leader™ has the ability to interact positively, actively listening, understanding, and responding to different behavioral styles.  The Rare Leader naturally proves he or she can focus on others rather…

Look Before You Leap

“I’m Decisive.  I own this company and I am expected to make decisions.”  Is this you?   Or does this sound familiar?  “You spend so much time trying to figure out what to do, that nothing gets done.  I didn’t hire you to sit around and do nothing”. Jack was stunned as he listened to…

Taking One For The Team

I call these twelve behaviors and characteristics the style of a Rare Leader™. Since January, we have “dug deep” into the behaviors of…

Charisma builds Trust

“Beauty is but skin deep.” When poet John Davies of Hereford wrote this now famous saying in 1616, he was actually referring to a murder involving Sir Thomas Overbury.   We have taken this almost 400 year old phrase and excluded the remaining lines of the poem which include “Beauty is but skin deep, ugly…

Vision…Putting it to work

Looking back on these past four weeks and our discussions of Vision.  What have we learned?  Here’s a sample of what we found… Vision is your clear, inspired picture, creating a passionate, committed journey to discover what can happen. Isolate what you see. What trends  and data support you? Allow your vision to inspire you,…

Acting On Your Vision

”I’m high on ideas, but low on execution”.  How many times have you heard someone say this?  Typically you hear it from someone who sees themselves as very creative.  Or, as they might say…I’m an idea guy.   We’ve lived with and worked with them.  A parent declares…”Let’s vacation in the mountains this year”.  Great idea. …

Share Your Vision

I noticed a peculiar common thread running through many leaders and companies.  There seems to be a shroud of secrecy among the leadership team, a secrecy between each other as individuals, and most alarming, a secrecy from the rest of the employees and even customers.  (Building Trust between people and within Teams is another item…
