We get what we invest in. The time we spend comes back, with interest. – Seth Godin

Who are we seeking to become? by Seth Godin

When adding people to your organization. Look for these three things (in the order listed!):

  1. Character
  2. Chemistry (organizational fit)
  3. Competency

Talent doesn’t matter if there is a deficiency of character or the person does not fit your culture.


A New Adventure!

March 23, 2017

Friends, as some of you know, I have enjoyed helping others through coaching (as a certified leadership coach) and teaching over the years. Additionally, I have enjoyed and had the pleasure of helping various organizations from nonprofits, to businesses, to churches become more effective in accomplishing their mission. I have done this sometimes as part of my “day job” as I did at Ambassador Enterprises and sometimes I have done this on the  side from my day job.

Now, I am doing what friends have suggested that I do – I am launching off into my own practice full-time to come alongside and help individuals and organizations more effectively accomplish their mission. Currently, I am doing this part-time, but in April, I will be full-time into my practice.

I have been blessed to become an Executive Coach with Coachwell, Inc. It is an incredible organization that is already giving me outstanding support. Additionally, the use of their coaching platform, CoachwellPro, will greatly enhance the coaching experience for those that I help.

Do let me know if I can be of service to you or your organization!

Great article from Inc.com – 3 Timeless Traits Leaders Must Have“. One of those is Coaching Skills. The author, Marcel Schwantes, states:

You want your organization to become high-performing? I have the answer. An overlooked piece of the puzzle is coaching. The bad news, according to one study, is that less than half of organizations surveyed had implemented coaching as a part of their performance management process. For the few that did, you guessed it–high-performing organizations.

A good article from Marcel Schwantes and worth your time to read.

Coaching is so critical in all aspects of our lives – personal and professional. As Coachwell, Inc. states on their website:

Your life is important—every part of it. When you’re doing well, every part of your life goes well, and when you’re not doing well, everything suffers. Coachwell equips you to excel by paying attention to what matters most—your character, your health, your goals, your priorities and the team you’re building around you.

We all need the help and support of others.


When was the last time you were excited about your life? Are you physically healthy? Are your relationships healthy?
