Staging a Reboot By Nicole Bridge May 4, 2022

This week, I took a back-to-school photo of my three children- right there on the porch, next to the flowerpot, in front of our pink door, as we do every year. Only it isn’t September, it’s March.

Strategy Versus Tactics: The Case for Delegating By: Eileen Marshall January 1, 2022

Many of those in leadership positions, whether middle-management, team leader or senior executive, know they should be delegating tasks – probably more than they already do.  Do any of the following "reasons” sound familiar?     "I just can’t seem to let this task go!”    "I am worried this will fall off the radar.”    "I don’t really trust anyone else to get this done.”    "This is really complicated and would take more time to explain than to just do it myself.”   We can self-talk our way out of delegating to others - and justify it every step… Read More
