Good Morning Friends!
I hope your week has been awesome!
Mine has been a slow climb back to “normal” as I caught a wicked bad case of bronchitis last week that knocked me out. It seems like everyone I know has been sick!
I don’t know about you but when I am sick and forced to slow down, I try to view it as a gift in disguise. The slowness allows me to experience quiet, unguarded moments. To rest without feeling guilty. And to appreciate normal so much more when it returns!
Whether you are down for the count, or operating at 100 percent, I hope you find time this weekend to appreciate at least a few introspective moments!
Here are a few more things to consider as we head into the weekend…
Are You Authentic?
The term “authentic leadership” gets thrown out regularly, but what does it really mean? Are you an authentic leader?
I hope you’ll join us March 4 for our next Inspired Leadership event, “Leading with Authenticity and Intention.” Spotlight speaker Carole Ann Penney, CPC, Strategic Career Coach, Speaker and Organizational Consultant, will help attendees explore what it means to be an “authentic” leader and how to close the gap between the leader you intend to be and how you show up today.
Grab a teaser of what Carole Ann’s talk in our 5-question catch-up!

Anyone else a huge Leonard Cohen fan? This video caught my eye last weekend. It’s a beautiful and powerful rendition that is worth watching to lift your spirits. Check it out here!
A Moment of Reflection
Reflection is not only important when it comes to our evolution and growth; research shows it actually improves performance!
When employees spend 15 minutes at the end of their workday reflecting on how it went, performance improves by 20 percent (source). So… is it time to incorporate mandatory reflection recess at work?!
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions” – Stephen R. Covey
At the end of the day, all the change you desire starts with you. This quote does a great job of reminding us that we are never a product of circumstance. Rather, we are agents of change capable of changing course whenever we want.
Remember, no action is in fact an action. What action can you take next week in support of your dreams?
Check them out, and I hope to see you there!
