Leadership Through Community Engagement: The Ultimate Win-Win
As we develop and strengthen the leadership in our organizations, as well as our personal leadership development, we should be sure to include time and planning for “community focus.”  More and more organizations have broadened their vision to include community service initiatives. Your career development plan should include the same goals for considering your involvement in  your community. There are many ways to explore ‘community’, both inside and outside your organization and this can become a highlight for your experience and resume. Caretaking for your community can also contribute to your overall wellness and help you to develop as a confident professional.


Let’s start with a definition of what we mean by community focus.  Wikipedia defines community a social unit of any size that shares common values.Values” elicit our energy and emotion because they are principles that we deeply believe in.  We should therefore invest our time and our support.  In our career path, we sometimes get so busy with tasks that we forget to schedule time to “give back” and revisit our values.  Finding time to serve a greater good can be easier than you think and the rewards for you can make a big difference.

Always Leave a Place Better Than You Found It

Written by Michelle Braden, CEO Posted in Blog

Do you remember those things you mother always said to you?  Do you also remember when you realized those things she said were meaningful to life?   One of the things my mother used to always say was, "Always leave a place better than you found it".  She was referring to cleanliness.  She taught me when I stayed at someone's house, before leaving I should put clean sheets on the bed, empty the trash and make sure the rooms I used (including the bathroom) looked better than when I arrived.  I value this lesson and still live into it.

Everything in our our culture centers on doing more... more emails, more meetings, more reduction of staff and budget cuts... the list is endless. In the race between you and the clock – who wins? Would you rather manage a difficult employee than try to manage your time? And who has enough time for the extras – hobbies, volunteer work, and family!? When did family become an extra? In this informative session we will explore solutions for balancing time for work, home, and self, help you introduce effective time management techniques for you and your team, and discuss what to do when the unexpected comes along and rocks your boat. We will discuss how to focus on what is most important, how less can be more and the principle of "When I go slow..... I go fast"

  • How to become aware of your energy cycle so you can use it to your advantage
  • How to train your staff to manage their time so that their crises don’t become yours

Above the Fray or Head in the Sand?

Above the Fray or Head in the Sand?

A few years ago, I was working with a leader who was a department head as well as a member of the organization’s executive team. This leader had a healthy department with positive attitudes, good communication and strong relationships; however, several of the other departments within this organization were not so fortunate. There were many challenges going on in other departments from high turnover, continued gossip, poor communication and lack of trust, just to name a few.

When the conversation would turn to the challenges other departments within the organization were having, this leader would often say, “I am taking the high road and choose to stay out of the drama”. At first blush this seemed very noble; however, the challenge was that the “drama”, so to speak, was real and the other teams were quickly becoming dysfunctional.
