Good Afternoon Friends!
I spent most of last week in Maine hiking and taking in some of the most breathtaking sights that inexplicably cause time to become still. Throughout the week, I experienced what I like to call unguarded moments—purely authentic, honest moments with a heightened degree of clarity. Moments in which amazing ideas find their way into your mind. Moments of complete clarity.
I’ve come back ready to turn those realizations into action; and it feels awesome!
Today, I am excited to announce the launch of my newsletter: Leading From The Edge. Through this newsletter, I will tee up leadership concepts, frameworks and tips that you can leverage along your pathway to intentional leadership.
Let’s get started!
Reframe: Change as Opportunity
We often view transition and inflection points—whether personal or professional—as potential threats to our existing way of operating. But what if we viewed our next big change as an opportunity? As the door opening to something unbelievable? Join us at the ON Leadership Conference, taking place Nov. 21 in Warwick, Rhode Island, as we dive into how to shift the mindset to see change as an opportunity.

Research from Gallup states that just 27% of employees strongly agree in their company’s values, and only 23% feel they can apply their organization’s values to their work every day. What about you? Are your business’ values in alignment with your core values? Click here to fill out this quick 3-minute survey. Your results will be shared at the ON Leadership Conference, social media and upcoming workshops.
[Video] Leaders Care
Intentional leadership is about being willing to stand up and lead in a world where no one is forcing you to be a leader. Intentional leaders care. Check out this video (click here) to get a little mid-week inspiration!
Quote of the day: “Trust thyself: every heart to that iron string.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I became enamored with this quote as a sophomore in high school when I first read Emerson’s essay “Self-Reliance.” I read the quote during a difficult period in my life when I had more questions than answers and I was paralyzed by self doubt. To me, the iron string is a metaphor for the faith in which someone places in themselves. This week, try trusting yourself a little bit more. See if that helps you move the needle on any part of your personal or professional journey.
