In today’s demanding business environment (cost pressures, flatter organizations, more direct reports, “speed to market” as a competitive advantage, etc.) you have limited opportunity to devote time and energy to your own development. Most leaders struggle to meet all of the responsibilities of their positions and are too busy and too stressed to step back and learn from their experiences – or to implement changes that establish best practices. The one thing that is in no one’s best interest is for you, as a leader, to forsake your own learning and development – no matter what level you may be. In the current environment, Executive Coaching is one sure-fire way you can continue to develop your executive-level skills, as well as address your developmental and growth needs (which impacts the entire organization), while continuing to run your organization on a day to day basis.

Hi – I hope you are all enjoying the holidays… and looking forward to the new year! Yes, it is that time of year again… we all need to start looking ahead and thinking about what we would like to accomplish next year. Have you started thinking about next year and what you will accomplish? We all know traditional goal setting doesn’t work… and New Year’s Resolutions? Enough said! Did you know:
- 70% of organizational change initiatives FAIL
- 83% of people have no set goals. While 14% have goals, they do not write them down. The remaining 3% who do write their goals are ten times more successful than the 14% with unwritten goals.
- 92% of people FAIL to achieve their New Years resolutions, with more than 64% quitting before the end of the first month!
Because I have worked in the corporate world for so long, I have definitely seen more initiative fail and more people fail to meet their objectives than I care to think about. I tend to wonder… If people are not committed to achieving those goals that their paychecks depend on, what is happening in their personal lives? Many years ago, I developed a process to ensure that not only did I meet my goals and objectives (personal and professional alike), I could also help my employees to achieve success in their work… and in their lives. Today, I use the same process with my clients around the world. My method has been proven over and over again and I would like to introduce you to a way to achieve success in every area of your life in a sustained, dependable way. Studies show, repeatedly, how valuable goal setting can be when it is actually followed through on. In fact, one thing all successful people have in common is that they set, follow through… and achieve the goals they set. I created this e-guide to help you discover a new way of thinking that will enable you to meet your goals and improve your life… in any area. Please take this opportunity to download this FREE e-guide that will help you to think about goal-setting in a new, more inclusive way.
If you follow this process, you WILL achieve your goals and obtain unimaginable success in the coming year… and beyond. I would love to hear about the success you are sure to achieve!
Best Regards, Sheri
As the New Year approaches, once again I find myself reflecting on both the challenges and the incredible opportunities that have presented themselves throughout 2013. As I look back, there have been both good and not so good, but for the most part… I have been incredibly blessed.
I find myself to be both humbled and ever so grateful that you’ve given me the opportunity to connect with you – allowing me to share my thoughts and global leadership experience with you… to come to know some of you just a little bit. As I look back, there have been so many valuable interactions, comments and insights from all of you. I am so fortunate to have you in my network and I look forward to continuing our journey of continuous growth together in 2014. These are the things that truly matter… Continue Reading…
We all want to communicate well. But realistically, how often do we communicate with intention? Sometimes, even beyond communicating with intention, we need to stop and consider how to communicate strategically in order to achieve what is important to us.
This week, I am going to step back to a very simplistic communications tool that may give you pause as you consider how you communicate to achieve successful ends. It is called the DEAR MAN and it will walk you through some valuable considerations to make as you consider how to communicate with strategic intention. When speaking with someone and seeking to communicate strategically, consider this model: Continue Reading…
Before we can act with intentionality, we have to think with intentionality. The reality is, most of us do not.
More often than not, we catch what we pursue – not what we envision. Contrary to some popular views, we aren’t successful by just visualizing what we want. While we need to look ahead and establish what it is we are trying to achieve, if we only recognize one piece of the puzzle chances are we will never actually achieve anything. Here are four very intentional pieces to the success puzzle: Continue Reading…
As the New Year approaches, I find myself reflecting on both the challenges and the incredible opportunities that have presented themselves over this past year. As I look back, there have been both good and not so good, but for the most part… not a bad year.
I find myself to be both humbled and grateful that you’ve given me the opportunity to connect with you – allowing me to share my thoughts and global eldership experience with you. As I look back, there have been so many valuable interactions, comments and insights from all of you. I am blessed to have you in my network and I look forward to continuing our journey of continuous growth together in the coming year.
The New Year is also a time to look forward. What will it bring? How will we continue our journey? What opportunities and challenges will present themselves? I don’t know. But what I do know is that the New Year is a time for resolutions – not the kind that are often broken before they ever begin, but the kind that you earnestly resolve to achieve in the coming year. In order to avoid that unfortunate feeling we get when we haven’t followed through with “resolutions”, I propose we focus on intentional goals for the coming year instead. Continue Reading…
