Authenticity at Work

Authenticity is so crucial for leaders and managers to understand. I love to open up my leadership workshops with the following challenge to the leaders in the room: "You don't control anyone. You can have tremendous influence on those around you by controlling the only person you can which is you" Some people get into trouble by marrying someone for their "potential", thinking they can change them over time. Usually that doesn't turnout well! Great teams don't evolve by changing people. They evolve from creating an environment that motivates them.

2 Success Tools for Everyday Life: If you want to be an A-Lister, these B Lists will get you there!

A-listers is a term commonly used for those elite Hollywood stars that make over $15 million per film.

I think that the Hollywood definition is dangerous to us all because it defines success by monetary income/wealth or the "Stuff" we've accumulated. For me an A-Lister is someone who is simply happy with their life because they are meeting the goals they set for themselves no matter what they are.

I'd like to spend a bit on why it is so important for companies and how Social Media can be an important tool in finding it. As an example, let me brag on a favorite restaurant of mine in Calgary called Marathon.
