Nike says, “Just Do It!” World class, billion-dollar tag line. Yet, to quote Dr. Phil, “How’s that working for you?” If you could “just”, you probably would.

There is anxiety, hesitation, and fear in all of us as we face the uncertainty of these bizarre times. There is also hope, potential and opportunity to navigate these choppy waters and become a better version of yourself as you lead yourself, family, or team beyond the pandemic. It is not either or, both are...

We’ve all been flooded the last few months with messages of dire warnings. There is a widespread belief that the personal, social and business environment created by the coronavirus epidemic is uncharted territory – but nothing could be further from the truth! History is packed with events that shook our society at its core: wars,...
