Leadership Insights #19: The Two Ingredients for Meaningful Connection

Meaningful connections are sooooo important!!! Last week, I reconnected with a group of colleagues and friends that I have known for 10-20 years! It had been a while since we had all been together because of COVID, business, and travel, and we were all overwhelmed by how special it was! So much joy!!! We reflected on why this particular group from Shire was so close, and we realized it was because we had gone through so many ups and downs together both in business and in life. We stepped into...

We recently had the privilege of working with Team Summit's young athletes, headed for the Winter Youth Olympics in South Korea this month! Witnessing their infectious energy through backflips, dancing, and supportive cheers during mock press conferences and 1:1 interviews was a true testament to their vibrant spirit.The balance these athletes maintain is remarkable. Juggling schoolwork, intensive on and off the snow training, and community service, they embody a level of discipline and...

Hello friends and colleagues! Goodbye, 2023! I've had my share of ups and downs, from fighting Lyme disease and helping a close friend through tough times to starting up the TruPotential Group. It's been quite the ride, and honestly, I'm pretty proud of what I've managed to pull off. I'm not trying to brag—I just think it's good to give ourselves a pat on the back now and then. This year was a real learning curve for me. It pushed me into some scary places, but I had great people around me to...

Hello friends and colleagues! Eight years ago, during the holiday season, our family faced a heart-wrenching revelation - my father’s cancer had progressed to his brain. A passionate driver, he was advised to put away his keys, ending a joy that had long been a part of his life. This news came two years after he was told he could no longer indulge in his beloved hobby of biking. My parents had explored thousands of miles across Colorado on their bikes, participating in events like Ride the...

As an ENFP leader, my journey has been filled with valuable lessons, many learned through challenging failures. I’ve always believed in the power of consensus in decision-making, a natural inclination for someone with my personality type. But as my responsibilities grew, and I began leading other leaders, this approach didn’t always yield the best results.A defining moment came on January 2nd, many years ago. I received a call that changed my perspective on leadership. The caller was a...

As we approach the end of the year and holiday season, you may start to feel a bit unsettled as a leader. Don't let it catch you off-guard or throw you off-balance. Give yourself a break. If you had an off-week, there are several likely reasons why: Most of us have less than 30 working days to accomplish all our goals before the end of the year. Our circadian rhythm just got thrown off with daylight savings time. Juggling vacation time, family travel, gift-giving, and holiday parties adds...

Imagine the scene at the Westin at Denver International Airport: top-tier leaders gathered for meetings with a packed agenda...all under my direction. By midday, however, negative body language overshadowed proceedings. Despite assuming hunger was the culprit and promptly addressing it, the unsettling vibes persisted. Engagement was scarce, energy levels were dwindling, and participation was at an all-time low.The wake-up call came at the end of the first day. A colleague renowned for his...

Hello Leaders, Is it easy for you to prioritize investing in yourself? We had many conversations this week with executives who have shared about people problems within their companies. We really wish we had a magic wand that would just make all their problems disappear...but alas, no such wand exists. Clarity came for several leaders when we shared about the power of investing in ourselves. As leaders, our role has the highest impact on the performance of our teams. How are we seeking to...

Hello Leaders, We had the honor of hearing author and speaker, David Cook speak on Greatness last week in Dallas per a special invitation from ERISA Recovery. The talk was titled, Selfless Exceptionalism. Cook captivated the room as he shared stories of peak performance athletes and how they handled high pressure situations when their lifelong goals were on the line – a pole vaulter who competed at the Olympic trials with 36 stitches(!!!), a pro-golfer who nailed the challenging hole to win...

Hello Leaders, Those that have worked with me in the past, especially 10 plus years ago probably remember instances where something in a meeting triggered an impulse. The result was me saying or doing something that, although funny, was emotionally unintelligent and caused unintentional damage. One that I recall and still cringe is during one of our standard managers' meetings, we were asked to bring our senior yearbook photos. The projector cast images of our younger selves, clad in iconic...
