EMPOWERED LEADERS CHAT - Get Both You & Your Team Out of That Rut

Published 11 months ago • 2 min read

Welcome back to the Empowered LeadersTM newsletter, Reader!

I'm so glad you're here!

Looking for ideas to get you & your team out of a rut, Reader? Try these 2 ideas:

This one is great for both you & your team... when another meeting is just not needed - quite the opposite is needed! My team has done this one a few times, and, since many of us live in different states, it is nice to see photos from other locations to bring us all a little closer together!

This one is more for YOU! When you can't seem to get yourself motivated to do that next item on your "to do" list... do something that you CAN do (& would rather do). Something smaller, that will give you a quick hit of feeling productive so you can tackle that other "to do"!

Reply back and let me know what ideas you utilize to break the normal routine... or let me know if you tried these!

Remember to take care of YOU, Reader

Many great leaders spend all of their time managing up & managing down... but they forget about themselves in all that busy-ness. Remember that taking your own breaks, downtime (15 minutes or a day/week off) helps to refuel YOU... so that you can take on that next task, that next meeting, that next deadline.

Building a safe space - where you can ask "that" question!

Do you have someone or somewhere you can ask all of your questions about leadership? I'm talking about a safe space, where you can ask that question... the one you are afraid to ask your boss.

Check out my upcoming Academy for newer leaders just like you, Reader!

Coming this Fall... apply NOW!

Don't wait!

Because... after the 1st cohort year, new member prices will increase (while prices for founding members will stay the same.)

You don't have to do this alone...
you just have to take the 1st step!

Love to Read?

This book is a compilation of stories from 44 different servant leaders to give you different perspectives with the hope of enlightening YOU on your own journey into servant leadership.

I hope you enjoy "Servant Leadership in Action", Reader!

I particularly enjoyed the parable of the empty boat... bringing to light our human nature to blame someone else, right up until we realize there is no one else... it's us who is creating the issue.

Then there was chapter 37 "It's How You Treat People" that stood out to me... which included the idea of "pruning". I couldn't agree more with this section.

I'd love to hear your favorite section(s) - reply back to me, Reader, with your thoughts!

Welcome Back, Reader Does Your Team Really Have Psychological Safety? Or do you just think they do? "Our people speak up all the time in meetings!" But is it the same people who always speak up? "They feel comfortable bringing up issues to me!" But do they blame others when they do? "Everyone on my team is happy!" But are they only cajoling you with what they think you want to hear? Even worse... The higher up in the leadership chain that your role is, the further from seeing 'the bottom of...

Do You Have a Fixed or Growth Mindset? Let's look at some examples... "Your intelligence is something very basic about you that you can't change very much." "You can learn new things, but you can't really change how intelligent you are." "No matter how much intelligence you have, you can always change it quite a bit." "You can always substantially change how intelligent you are." Did you find yourself agreeing more with the first two phrases? ...or with the last two phrases? In her book 'Grit...

Welcome Back, Empowered Leader, I'm so glad you're here, Reader! I Have What? I had been expecting the depression diagnosis... it's why I had come. What I had not expected was the diagnosis for anxiety, too. Why? I had my own idea of what anxiety was... an image in my head of how it looked. I was wrong. Instead, I learned that my anxiety had been around for quite a long time. For so long that it was how I identified myself to be - normal, I thought. Now I knew differently. Until you know...
