Good Morning Friends!
I have had a busy two weeks traveling from Georgia to Orlando to the beautiful Ocean State delivering three Leadership Challenge Workshops, my signature workshop that invites everyone—no matter what it reads on their business card—to step into their leadership calling. Every time I lead one of these workshops, I feel a renewed sense of inspiration and excitement for the potential each of us has to create lasting impact.
On this Monday, I invite you to think about your own potential and give a little extra thought to that one dream you have that is requesting a bit more of your attention.
As you do so, maybe some of these tips and suggestions will prove helpful…
Change Starts With You
It can be easy to wait for others to spark the change that you wish to see, but all desired change starts with you. If you want to work in a less toxic environment, start modeling the behaviors you wish to see. If you want to launch your own business, don’t wait for all the signs to prove that this exact moment is the right time to make the jump; it will never be the perfect moment.
In my most recent blog I talk about the importance of all change starting with you. Check it out (click here) and then come explore the power of change moments at the ON Leadership Conference, Nov. 21!

Asleep at the Wheel
We spend more time at work than anywhere else, yet research shows we are many times asleep at the wheel, with 85% of employees not engaged or actively disengaged at work, according to Gallup’s State of the Workplace Report. What does this mean for you? Do a quick gut-check. Are you in the 85%? If so, it may be time for some introspective work and a potential pivot.

Leadership is about choosing to stand up when the rest of the world opts to sit down. This quick video, “Seat Without a Ticket,” does a great job of illustrating the power of standing up and the impact it has on others. Watch now!
What is Your Dream?
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman
What I love most about the quote is the opening: “Every great dream begins with a dreamer.” Our founding fathers wanted to create a new republic based on democratic ideals. The Wright Brothers wanted to fly. John F. Kennedy wanted man to be able to fly to the moon and back. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted everyone to judge a person solely on the content of their character. Everyone has a dream of some sort they are chasing. Everyone including you and me. So, what is your dream?
