Using Reflection & Intention to Create a Productive 2009

Anese Cavanaugh

NOTE: This article is part of a bigger article released to DTE Community Members. You can access this full article and additional articles by registering in the box in the upper right hand corner of this page. The end of the year provides us a great opportunity to reflect on the previous year, pull learning and have it support the next year.

Engage much? It’s not just the words you say…

Anese Cavanaugh

It’s not necessarily the words you say, but rather the tone, the intent and the physiology you say them with. I often have clients come to our meetings with issues about “unintentional impact”…saying or doing something and having it perceived in a negative way. One of the things you can do when you’re not getting the result you want from your communication is to look at the result you DO get, plus these 4 things: Intention: What is the intention of my communication?

Women Rule in International Diplomacy

Women's Leadership Exchange

The buzz about Senator Hillary Clinton becoming Secretary State is so loud that I believe it is "safe" to. comment on it. I read that Gloria Steinem says Senator Clinton should accept it and Marie Wilson, head of the White House Project, says she would prefer the senator stay in the Senate, so I thought I'd offer you my opinion so that you can make your comments.

Dare to Challenge FEAR

Anese Cavanaugh

What does failure have to do with action? I wrote an article on daring to celebrate failure. I spoke about the learning and growth and opportunities that we can find when we allow ourselves to really celebrate and learn from our failures. A couple of months later, I’m curious how that’s settled for readers. Curious what that article, the exercise provided, and the invitation to truly celebrate failure may have brought up for you. Resistance? Permission? A sigh of relief? Just notice.

Dare to Elevate Engagement

Anese Cavanaugh

Did you know: 21% of the global workforce considers themself actively engaged in their work right now (loyal, passionate, positive, enjoying their work.) 38% are actively disengaged (meaning they’re complaining, bringing morale down, looking for another job, etc.) And the remaining 41% aren’t sure where they stand. Does that suprise you?

Gratitude…A gift in itself

Anese Cavanaugh

I LOVE Thanksgiving…it may very well be my favorite holiday. To me, this week is one of the happiest of the year, regardless of what’s happening in the economy, in the world, in our own personal lives. Truly. One of the happiest of the year. Because we get to walk around expressing gratitude, more than usual, not that we can’t everyday (because I personally believe we absolutely can and should). But because it gives us an extra container and nudge to create space for gratitude.

The economic forecast is doom and gloom. But it doesn't have to be your economic reality. It's your choice! Do you choose the Batman or Mamma Mia economic mentality?

Good Morning President Obama

Women's Leadership Exchange

Waking up this morning, I smell "hope" in the air, rather than the familiar smell of coffee. What a welcome fragrance! It truly fills my entire body. I usually never use the word "hope," cause for me it is not a word of action - and I like action.

The Mystery (and Simplicity) of Engagement…

Anese Cavanaugh

How do you keep your team engaged? How do you personally stay engaged? In your work? At home? In your personal life? In your fitness regime? It’s easy to “check out”…especially with so many competing demands. So how do you stay “fully engaged?”. I had a meeting yesterday with a colleague who shared with me that she “didn’t like how something was going, so she changed it.” That simple.

Bad News on the Economic Front Can't Stop Women's Success

Women's Leadership Exchange

This morning we awoke to another crisis on Wall Street.the news that Lehman Brothers appeared to be going into bankruptcy and Bank of America was buying (or saving) Merrill Lynch. All this on the heels of Hurricane Ike's devastation. Fall 08 seems to be coming in ferociously. All this in the midst of a presidential election that is full of attacks, innuendoes and fear. On top of this WLE hosted with Aetna a morning breakfast program featuring NYC Congresswoman Carolyn B.

Good News and Bad News

Women's Leadership Exchange

The news at the start of the Labor Day weekend that John McCain picked a woman - Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska - as his running mate in the presidential race took just about everyone but the McCain camp by surprise. No matter whether you agree with Sarah Palin's stand on various issues or not.no matter whether you think she has too little experience or not.no

Sex and the City Meets Another Career Women

Sex and the City and Women in Business

Women's Leadership Exchange

I enjoyed the new film Sex and the City - it was colorful, full of fashion, & silliness - it was entertaining! And that's why we go to the movies isn't it? But now 2 days after seeing it, and after reading an article in the Wall St. Journal about how young teen girls are flocking to it, even though it may have an R rating, I got concerned. And it isn't the R rating that concerns me (though I'm sure that's not good), it's the underlying message that it sends to young girls and women.

Follow the Monkey 's Advice

Women's Leadership Exchange

These days, it can be dangerous to one's mental state, not to mention one's business, to read the business pages or listen to the news.Bear Stearns going down, Eliot Spitzer, the Dow Industrial tumble, economists saying that the "r" (I refuse to say the word) has arrived, etc. Therefore, I follow the advice of my stuffed monkey (from my childhood), who has recently been featured in a TV commercial traveling around the world in the briefcase of an executive.

Got Leadership?

Women's Leadership Exchange

Got Leadership? Who’s got it? How do you get it? The word “leadership&# has recently been batted about the media, especially as it relates to our current slate of political candidates. Journalists and opinion leaders are asking, “Does she/he have the right leadership style to lead America?&# What exactly are they talking about? I believe many of these reporters have two words mixed up – leadership and management.

Excellence is a Drive from Inside, Not Outside

Self Help Zen

A man once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you need two statues of the same idol?”. Well,” said the sculptor without looking up, “We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage.”. The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage. Where is the damage?” he asked. There is a scratch on the nose of the idol.”
