Good Morning Friends!
I hope your week is going great!
I got to kick off the week by touring the Crowne Plaza and walking through the space we will use for the ON Leadership Conference in November (more details below). It’s going to be an awesome day as leaders like you come together to explore how they can enact profound change to reach new levels of personal and professional transformation. A perfect way to welcome the week!
As we head into a long weekend, here are a few small things you can do to support your leadership journey…
What is Your Relationship with Change?
Some of us are change advocates, welcoming adventure and newness every chance we can. Others have a somewhat tenuous relationship with change as we focus more on its uncertainty and unease instead of the opportunity it presents. While still others of us are somewhat in the middle.
As you consider your relationship with change, grab some insights from our ON Leadership Conference speakers (click here) on a few ways you can start to think about change. Then, commit to working on your relationship with change at the ON Leadership Conference, taking place Nov. 21 from 8 am to 12:30 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Click here to register!
[Video] The Infinite Mindset
Best-selling author and public speaker Simon Sinek believes that the ability to adopt an “infinite mindset” has quickly become a prerequisite for any leader. In this video (click here), Simon talks about what almost every business leader gets wrong and how to embrace an infinite mindset.
We hear the term “purpose’ being thrown quite a bit in the business world. But is there scientific proof that purpose leads to sizeable growth? There sure is! Research from the E.Y. Beacon Institute and Harvard Business School found 80% of purpose-led companies showed positive growth while 42% of non-purpose driven companies showed a dip in revenue.

What Are We Not Asking?
“I very frequently get the question: ‘What’s going to change in the next 10 years?’ And that is a very interesting question; it’s a very common one. I almost never get the question: ‘What’s not going to change in the next 10 years?’ And I submit to you that that second question is actually the more important of the two — because you can build a business strategy around the things that are stable in time” – Jeff Bezos
I love this quote! Jeff goes on to explain that when you know something in your business will not change, you can spend worthwhile energy in efforts today that will still pay off years from now. It’s important to look through the windshield regularly, anticipating what’s to come. But it’s also important to double down on what’s working today that will need to remain in place tomorrow. What is one component of your business that falls into that category?
