Iron Sharpens Iron
N2Growth, Inc
February 19, 2019
Each day I find myself reflecting upon the journey of servant leadership and what I now have been convinced to better define as “relational leadership”. Although I certainly do not intend to make this a post with any religious overtones, I find that the bible has an amazing quote that shapes my thinking on this topic. Proverbs 27:17 proclaims: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”. This simple statement has been a calling for all these years to understand that no one is alone. That in order to make yourself better, there is a mutual benefit to making others better through mentorship, followership, and leading. Iron sharpening Iron from a practical standpoint means there is a tremendous benefit to rubbing blades together, forging, and making the edges sharper and more efficient. Iron will be in some form or shape at all times, but it is what you do with it that makes the difference. The more time you spend paying attention to the tools that you have and the way you “forge” your relationships and presence, the stronger the other objects (others) become.

What is a four-letter word that is one of the most destructive in all leadership?
N2Growth, Inc
June 08, 2022
I must admit that when I hear this word used to justify poor practice or weak excuses, it just gets under my skin.

The word I believe that should be taken entirely out of a leader's thought process is the word "busy."

Busy leaders are nearsighted; they live reactively instead of proactively.

Reactive leaders respond to what's happening, diverting from crisis to crisis.

Proactive leaders make things happen.

Reactive leaders push their most essential duties to the side. Leaders who react to what's happening rarely make things happen.

Let's face it, the word busy is:
· uncreative
· It makes people doubt themselves, and if you make people doubt themselves, they won't feel inspired by you
· It works the opposite way you want it to
· It's dismissive
· Being "busy" is what work is supposed to feel like!

To become more proactive, create systems to improve the workflow for yourself and your team.
So here is a challenge: The next time you're busy, slow down, and consider the strategic importance of what you're so busy about.

Another idea on how to fix it:

Words matter — they powerfully shape how we see ourselves and interpret our actions.
Changing our perspective on busyness may involve changing our habits and re-evaluating how we spend our time. The next time you're ready to use the word busy, see if one of the following phrases would work better:
· Abundant
· Engaged
· Captivated
· Productive
· Dynamic
· Excited
Take responsibility for your actions. Be proactive and simply own it! Lead.

The Power of Patience for Leaders
N2Growth
August 31, 2022
The power of slowing down. "Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast." This is a term used in many circumstances, so let’s discuss how leaders must understand the value of patience.

I was recently inspired by a friend posting on social media about the value of time. His comments about learning to understand the value of time were spot on truly, and I wanted to expand on a famous quote that includes time as value, but another key ingredient for success is patience. Leo Tolstoy said, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

Executive Coach

Location: Virtual    Date Available: August 23rd, 2022     Fees: $750.00

Submission Date: August 23rd, 2022     Service Type: Service Offered

Performance Coaching has evolved as a complete approach to optimizing oneself, moving away from a simple achievement-focused tool to a sophisticated human-centric and psychologically backed experience. We assess and coach the entirety of the person – not just roles and titles visible externally on the surface.

The core of my approach aims inward to understand one's “Leadership DNA” using cutting-edge assessments and insights validated by academic research. In every engagement, we ask reflective questions that probe deep beneath the surface to explore how one fits and balances work and sees themselves in the world. Reflection is a catalyst for self-awareness and clarity. You'll cognitively understand, recognize and break negative patterns and beliefs that have held you back. You'll learn how to get out of your way, unlock potential, and start making significant transformative shifts.

I am committed to communicating openly and shaping your Leadership DNA to new behaviors capable of accomplishing overarching organizational objectives with every executive coaching engagement. Through the performance coaching model, you’ll learn new skills to erode self-imposed limits and create healthy new habits opening up the path to achieving the outcomes you genuinely want to see.
My partnership is a win-win approach in which all partners plan and work through the discovery and development process together with you.

I utilize the latest methods and feedback data to develop the executive coachee's current and future leadership capacity.
