Leadership Lesson: Lack of context in any situation can hold us back, and everyone involved can lose out if it’s not provided—or considered.

There are many interpretations of what confidence might be, but there is one misconception that exists in the connection between confidence and insecurity: Many believe that a confident person does not have insecurities, but the truth is this is false.
To support that that belief is a falsehood, one interpretation of confidence states it is merely a reflection of the knowledge and understanding which a person has in themselves. So…
Leadership Lesson: If you don’t take advantage of the skills and knowledge your people want to contribute, they’ll burn out because they have no platform in which to burn off that energy.
Are you Burnt Out Bored? So much of your talent, not only not taken for granted but not taken…at all. You might have been hired or brought into a position that you now feel doesn’t necessarily tap into your true ability and…
One of the underlying foundations of being a leader is the ability to harness everything that is at one’s disposal.
One should be ready to utilize everything in their environment, both that which is obvious and that which is not, to improve and grow that mission with which they are entrusted or toward which they are working. We should be ready to take advantage of tools…
“Volunteers are not paid—not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
— Author Unknown
Never underestimate the power of volunteering—the ability to step up, be proactive, and provide your skill set, time, and dedication to the cause at hand without seeking compensation or setting quid pro quo expectations.

Review, cut, but learn from the toxic parts of your life. Whether it's people, co-workers, emotions, self-perception, social circles, social media, etc. There's too much greatness out there to limit yourself or settle. #self #development #leadership ow.ly/3CCt30mD7uu
How would you answer these questions? Your answers can provide insight into your own tendency to simplify or complicate? These questions open up that conversation, so they’re not just for interviewing candidates. #interviewing #hiring #coaching #business ow.ly/l5us30mrde3
How do you decide to step away from what you're working on? Do you know what your threshold is? Are you sure? Taking on too much can crush us in different ways, whether it depletes our energy, mental health, relationships, effectiveness, etc. #life #career #health #mentalhealth
Whether or not you're the boss, leader, or manager in your group, does each person have consistency, in terms of where they stand in their leaders' eyes? Do those being led know what they're going to get, from one day to the next? #leadership #management #workplace #hbr pic.twitter.com/v5rK1l4cGf
What are your daily habits and rituals...for yourself? Always deliver for others, but make sure you take care of yourself first. Be selfish with what gets you going. #success #Leadership #motivation #coaching twitter.com/TheSuccessKing…

Two groups down, and one to go. These students ask great questions. I want them to know what they're capable of. Never settle. Don't just be reactive. Stay proactive. Know who you are, what you want, and the value you can provide to others. #leaders…lnkd.in/e48jDpY
@sarahmzuccaro @RayDalio @AdamMGrant Outliers is great. @RayDalio's Principles is too. In general, think about how much goes unfixed because people can't speak up. Think of the development forfeited. I wonder what makes it easier for some of us to speak up. I guess some of us just see the urgency in life and work.
Looking forward to presenting again at the Prospanica CT 2018 Quest Education Summit. No one is ever too young to consider their leadership ability. Students can impact tomorrow by recognizing their true abilities today. #leadership #education #coaching ow.ly/zSPk30myiNE
Great point regarding what organizations take into account when weighing general group work vs. individualized work options for their people. There's a time, place, and need for each. Each is great on their own right: In the group, harnessing the power…lnkd.in/dAEtSJA
Where do you stand in each of the items listed in and outside of Your Comfort Zone? You don't HAVE to stand on any particular side, but you need to realize where you truly WANT to be. Where do you stand now? How do they reconcile? #life #leadership #business #coaching pic.twitter.com/fB5EEfnChy
