Boots or Slippers in 2010?

Anese Cavanaugh

Are you wearing “boots” or “slippers” in 2010? “Boots On” Option 2: Pick a theme for 2010. These words, along with my intentions and criteria (in business and my personal life) will help guide me in 2010. And really – if you’re ready to dive in and create some real shifts with your business, your team, or your life in 2010 – let’s talk “boot” So what will you focus on this year?

The “being” and “doing” of leadership…what’s it got to do with energy?

Anese Cavanaugh

I like to look at leadership through several lenses; two of the most important are (1) the “being” of leadership, and (2) the “doing” of leadership. Since we’re a “doing” culture, let’s take “doing” first. The “doing” of leadership is the actions, the behaviors, the things you can “see”.

Are you ready for 2010? What are you thinking?

Anese Cavanaugh

I’m a bit abuzz with a feeling of wonderment for what’s to come in the rest of this year, and what’s to be created for 2010. What are you thinking and believing and how will that serve you or slow you down for 2010? Are you ready? With boots on, bells on, and whatever else I care to wear into the New Year. I love the week after Thanksgiving. It’s a sign that we’re well into the holidays and no matter what’s happening in life, there’s a feeling of magic in the air.

Confessions of a “swimmer”…Where do you focus your attention?

Anese Cavanaugh

I’m in the midst right now of some big stuff. Our family just relocated 4 people, a dog named Ruckus, a new job for hubby, and my business…2200 miles across the country back to the West Coast where I am again at peace with mountains, sunshine and lots of water. It’s tougher in some ways that I wouldn’t have imagined…and easier in other ways that I wouldn’t have imagined. All in all, it’s great to be back.

Gratitude…The quickest energy shifter I know to deal with disappointment

Anese Cavanaugh

With Thanksgiving around the corner, one of my very favorite days, I find myself in a swirl of gratitude for the people in my life, the business that I get to be a part of, the clients that do this work with us, my adorable kids who show me everyday the gift of unconditional love and goodness, my husband who supports me and makes doing this work and doing the “mom/ceo” thing easier, and so much more. Am I gushing? Yes, a tad. .

Remembering those things that are in our power

Anese Cavanaugh

Simple leadership musings from the trenches: what we can control. There’s very little we have control over – so best to “bust a move” where we can create impact and set ourselves up for success, becoming the best “instrument of change” possible.

Strong Energy and Beliefs = Intended Outcomes

Anese Cavanaugh

Simple leadership musings from the trenches: intended outcomes. There’s no such thing as “no outcomes or results”…We’re always getting an outcome – it may just not be the one we originally wanted. If it’s not the outcome you intended, look back, what do you need to do differently to shift it? Even more importantly, back up…were you clear on what the outcome was in the first place (and did you communicate it?)

Intrinsic Motivation = Smart Leadership

Anese Cavanaugh

Simple leadership musings from the trenches: motivation. “ Motivating” people is unsustainable, if not completely unrealistic for any period of time, or at any true depth. If the motivation comes from an extrinsic place, ie. “I’m going to motivate you” (oy) or “Please motivate me” (yikes), it won’t stick.

Positive Energy and Beliefs = Positive Impact

Anese Cavanaugh

Simple leadership musings from the trenches: energy & impact. We’re having an impact in every moment – what that impact is is totally up to us – it is a choice. “They may not remember what you did, they may not remember what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”

Simple leadership tips…quality and results in leadership

Anese Cavanaugh

The quality of our relationships, partnered with our willingness to be real, take risks and be vulnerable, dictates the quality and results of our leadership. Our willingness to be real, take risks and be vulnerable makes us human and relatable. Our care, attention and nuturing of people and relationships makes us worthy of trust and being related to. Creating trust – true trust – in relationships is key. High quality relationships are built on that trust.

Got Energy? Lead With It.

Long Live the “Soft Stuff”: Skipping “Business as Usual” to Ignite Purpose and Optimize Mindset in Today’s Economy

Anese Cavanaugh

2010 has been referred to as the year of “making it or breaking it” – meaning it’s the year to DECIDE what will happen for each of us. We are in the midst of an exciting, nerve racking and pivotal time right now. I see this in the economy, in business, in leadership, in politics, in families, and in peoples’ senses of purpose and personal values. There’s a lot happening. On one hand I notice a lot of complaining, blaming, making excuses, and fear.

Bigger Questions and Bigger Games Lead to Changes…

Anese Cavanaugh

For someone, with a high value in connection and quality, I only work with a small number of people privately at a time. I do this in order to give my clients the amount of TLC, time and energy I feel good about, to take care of my own psychic and physical energy, and to leave room for the other things I love to do in my life. I also love working with small groups and teams and speaking to larger groups as I love the energy, connection and learning that takes place in community.

Let’s discuss it…shall we?

Anese Cavanaugh

We’re getting a lot more traffic to this blog – which is fantastic! We’re getting some great comments and input, and with that, we’re also getting a lot of spammers. A request from me to you dear serious readers, if you read something you like (or don’t) and want to comment on it, please submit your comments and let’s have a discussion about that specific topic.

The Energy of a Vision…

Anese Cavanaugh

I was working with a client today who’s got a vision that would move any man, woman, or child to tears. Truly, no exaggeration. I spent an hour in goose bumps. As we get more into his work and he wishes to take it broader, I’ll likely share a bit more about it, but in the meantime, thought I’d share one of the key themes from the call. Not one of us is immune to this gift/tool/resource…What is it?

Got Gratitude? Lead with it…

Anese Cavanaugh

Thanks for being here, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and let’s get ready for 2010. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m getting ready to sign off for a couple of days of family, food, fun, movies, games, some nice runs along the river, and some “me” time. Every year, with gratitude being one of my favorite energy producing leadership and connection tools, I write something about it for my clients and subscribers. This year I’m sharing it on the blog as well.

Best Leadership Books of 2010

A crisis exposes character or the lack of it. Our reaction is important. Our recent history requires a response; a correction; a change in the status quo. If we are thinking more-of-the-same or merely upping our game then we are destined to fail again. On the other hand if we are looking to change our games or approach, then we have a way forward.

Thanks for your contributions in 2010!
