What’s possible for a vulnerable leader?
This week Mike Edwards joins us from his blog with a post about vulnerability. In my last post Being vulnerable about vulnerability, I shared a lot about how learning to be present with my vulnerability has impacted me. Since then I have been reflecting on what may have led me to struggling so much with being vulnerable, and more importantly what is possible when...

Jessica Soroky Guest Post #51: Analyzing a 365-Day Cycle

To give a little more context, I was on The Leadership Gift™ Application Mastery call with Bill when one of the accredited Practitioners brought up...

3 Reasons to Select Team Members for Commitment, Not Skills
Trust me, if you come together over commitment, skills will follow. But if you select team members for skills, then needed commitment might never appear.
