I was out on a run in Tucson, moving over rocky, hilly terrain, when I realized that even though miles are important, their quality might be more so.  Particularly when there isn’t much time.  Pushing up a steep incline, watching my footing as I moved among crevices, I was reminded that the vigor with which we work, the commitment and the effort, rivals its duration.  In business, it might matter considerably more.

Are you and your team logging quality miles?

Or merely accruing distance?


I had the distinct honor of being inducted into the Million Dollar Consulting® Hall of Fame earlier this week.  I join approximately 80 colleagues from across the globe in sharing this tremendous privilege.

If your conference, board retreat, or summit needs a keynote speaker who inspires and provides practical, real-world solutions, I’m keynoting throughout the country this year on Magnificent Leadership® — Keys to Success.  And I’ve just rolled out a brand new keynote: “Self-Correcting Teams – The Heart of Innovation.”  For more: sarah@sarah-levitt.com

If you’re interested in how exemplary leaders lead themselves and their teams, you can find some truly amazing leadership journeys in my new book, Magnificent Leadership.  Marshall Goldsmith calls it, “A great read for all leaders and leaders-to-be.”  Go here to get your copy at Barnes and Noble.  (Amazon has only one copy left at the moment.)

And, if you want to work with me directly and aspire to your own Magnificent Leadership®, particularly if you’re preparing for, or entering, an elevated leadership position, you can reach me at sarah@sarah-levitt.com for more information.  I’ll have openings in Q2.  I work with smart, talented, ambitious CEOs and Fortune 1000 senior executives who run companies and aspire to magnificent performance and results.
