Boots or Slippers in 2010?
JANUARY 6, 2010
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. So what will you focus on this year? Really. A word. A phrase. A mantra. Whatever.
The “being” and “doing” of leadership…what’s it got to do with energy?
DECEMBER 9, 2010
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.
Are you ready for 2010? What are you thinking?
NOVEMBER 30, 2009
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. Yowza. How did that happen?
Confessions of a “swimmer”…Where do you focus your attention?
DECEMBER 17, 2010
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. All in all, it’s great to be back. To say it’s an adventure…would be…an…understatement.
Gratitude…The quickest energy shifter I know to deal with disappointment
NOVEMBER 22, 2010
Am I gushing? Yes, a tad. . Earlier this week I recorded a new video…you can see it by clicking here. It’s about gratitude and it’s about 3:30 minutes. After the quick recording, I’d intended to follow it up with a blog post to talk about the power of gratitude. The power of mindset. The power of everything great. Broke contract.
Remembering those things that are in our power
AUGUST 20, 2010
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. ” This is truly one of my most favorite points! from Anese
Strong Energy and Beliefs = Intended Outcomes
AUGUST 13, 2010
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?
Intrinsic Motivation = Smart Leadership
JULY 23, 2010
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. One develops a tolerance to it. They all may work for a bit when pushed/pulled from the outside, but for how long?
Positive Energy and Beliefs = Positive Impact
JULY 20, 2010
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
JULY 16, 2010
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. Creating trust – true trust – in relationships is key. Leadership is about relationships

Long Live the “Soft Stuff”: Skipping “Business as Usual” to Ignite Purpose and Optimize Mindset in Today’s Economy
FEBRUARY 25, 2010
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.

Bigger Questions and Bigger Games Lead to Changes…
FEBRUARY 25, 2010
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. Great places to look.

The Energy of a Vision…
JANUARY 20, 2010
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. Not one of us is immune to this gift/tool/resource…What is it? No matter what…Believe. And then you’ve got to be willing to do the work to make it happen…Lead.

Best Leadership Books of 2010
DECEMBER 25, 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.
