In yourself and it should make things better, not busier.

If it doesn’t, if it only adds to your plate without being additive, it’s likely not the right investment.

And, conversely, if you’re so under water that you can’t see how to change things, that’s a likely a very good indication that it’s time.


Upcoming Opportunities:

On October 5+6, The Magnificent Leadership® Executive Forum Annual Event is LIVE and in person this year at a luxe property 10 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham airport.  Woot!  Registration doors will open soon.  Seats are extremely limited and are open to non-members of the Forum.  This event is deliberately designed for real business and leadership conversation, a place to come together and gather, to get sustenance and inspiration and best ideas and strategies for your work as a leader.  Again this year, we’ve got two outstanding guest speakers: Nick Schacht, Chief Strategy Officer at SHRM, is coming to talk to us about all things talent: trends, retention, remaining competitive.  You name it.  And the phenomenal Janet Bridges, Vice President of Corporate Accounting and Finance at Chick-fil-A, and one of the most effective and authentic leaders I know, is coming to sit down for a fireside chat to get real about what she’s doing now and what’s she’s got her eye on for leading in 2023.  In addition, you’ll have breakout sessions and working groups for deeper idea-exchange with your colleagues, and there will also be time with yours truly where we craft your 2023 leadership strategy.  All behind closed doors.  We kick off with a cocktail reception on the evening of October 5th and enjoy a gourmet breakfast and lunch with the full day’s program on October 6th, included with your registration.  Tickets go on sale soon and are $1250 for first registrant, $750 for additional team members.  Stay tuned!  And if you know that you want to attend, email me right now or hit reply so I can hold your spot:
One idea can change your whole year.
But don’t take my word for it, go here to see what last year’s attendees of the Annual said.

On September 14th at 10am ET (note the date change from September 7th) I’m offering a 1 hour, cost-free webinar on making a career move:
“3-Factor Authentication: How to Decide What You Want, Pursue the Right Opportunities, and Land Your Ideal Role or Go Out on Your Own”  Hit reply to save your spot.
