Hey, guys! How about that selfie? Okay, perhaps it is not what I look like on the outside (thank goodness) but it is how I feel on the inside. Why? It is hard for me to promote myself. It makes me uncomfortable. I’d rather promote something that you are doing than something I am doing. So, now that we have cleared the air on that topic, I want to invite you to a webinar tomorrow – I am the guest speaker!
First of all, many thanks to my rock star Strengths community for promoting tomorrow’s “Called to Coach” webinar! I am so fortunate to have been asked by Gallup to speak about my coaching and leadership development practice. I couldn’t be more thrilled (maybe that’s why my face is red?)
Special thanks to Vicki Flaherty, Sharon Horbyk, Khalid Raza, Anna Leong Siew, Darrel Rader, Eric Ray, Susan Emerick, Natalia Dykiert, and Janet Cohen for inviting others to join, sharing the info via LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. Lydia Handzova has “encouraged” me (thank you, Lydia!) to do more with social media by creating and helping execute a plan. I am so grateful! (You may remember Lydia from my last blog – she is remarkable! Click Here if you didn’t read it yet.)
You guys are my special friends, so I’d like to share some of my topics. I will speak about:
1. How I helped the Cranbrook High School hockey team go from talented & struggling to talented and State Champs in six weeks (the MOST fun I’ve ever had in a coaching engagement!)
2. My success programs in the STEM community (technology, science, engineering, etc.) Are STEM teams different? Hmm… let’s talk about it!
3. My business philosophy – how I approach an engagement.
It will be fun to talk about these things in the context of some real examples.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been blogging less. It’s a consequence of balancing the dialing down of my day job and the dialing up of my strengths-based success business. It’s going well, but it’s difficult to manage. I find myself with very little free time. I ask for your patience and understanding.
In addition, Mike Fezzey, president of Huntington National Bank, passed away recently. Mike gave me my first big break as a success architect. He trusted me with his senior leadership team, and he was a partner on my Make Michigan Strong program. Mike died suddenly of a heart attack. He was 58 years old. I will soon blog about him and his remarkable ability to lead. In the meantime, please keep his family and team in your thoughts.
I hope to see you tomorrow – and you’ll have to let me know if my face is as red as the one in the image above! Onward!
UPDATE: We had a BLAST! I’ve since appeared on Called to Coach again (2016). You can see the conversation on YouTube – CLICK HERE:
