Do you believe what you focus on grows?  If you believe that, I have a question for you….How much intentional time (I’m not talking about a thought pops into your head) but how much true intentional time IN THE LAST WEEK – the past 7 days - have you invested in thinking about and centering your thoughts around how you want to close out 2017?  Write down that n....

Are you Growing or Declining?

The concept of life that I truly believe in and have lived my life over the last 40 years is the concept of grow or decline. When you hear that you say, ‘I believe in growth’ and you forget the decline part.

Effective Leadership and Your Organization

Let me ask you a few questions: Can effective leaders really make that much of a difference? Why do I need to be concerned about effective leaders? My company is doing okay.
