Create Opportunity Via Your Promotion

June 7, 2021

You got the promotion? Congratulations!!! You just promoted someone?? Fantastic!! Regardless of which side of the handshake you were on, here are 3 pro tips for succeeding in your new role OR setting up your new appointee for success! IF YOU JUST GOT PROMOTED:1. Listen First Then Act – don’t reverse that order – ever! Resist the urge to ‘prove’ to every one on day 1 that you are worthy of the new title! You are there for a reason – now open your ears to listen and learn and open your mouth to ask questions to learn. 2. Build Trust – Every day that needs to be your goal! People are watching what you do and say. Trust accelerates results! 3. Get A Mentor – Find someone who can help you ‘see around corners’ to reduce the learning curve and help you drive more impact. IF YOU JUST PROMOTED SOMEONE:1. Listen First Then Act – Encourage them to ask more questions to ID what needs to get done and why; Nudge them towards investing time every day to learn more from the people they lead and other key stakeholders; Help them set timelines for action. 2. Build Trust – Reinforce that trust is being built or broken every day by their words and actions. New promotion = microscope! Emphasize that Trust accelerates results! 3. Get A Mentor – Help them find a mentor that will assist them in the transition and help them navigate the rapids. This does NOT diminish your role as a leader – it’s about providing resources for your team to grow into the role for impact!

January 20, 2021

Shift Your Life If you have a dream, if you have a vision of who you could be and what you are truly here to do, then you have to listen to this episode of Mindset Monday with host Denise Zack! I get deep into my journey from a highly successful executive in professional motorsports to a professional speaker, coach, and author. In this episode, I share a ton of thoughts on my experience with emotion, let downs, and self actualization! Some of the key stories include:– How my wife and I prepared for this life-changing pivot – Why July 8, 2006 was my day of ‘giving up’ and the seed it planted for what I am doing today – How people who said they would be there for me didn’t show up and that forced my focus to be only on today; not some date down the road – The words from my 14-yr-old daughter on the reality of hard work that blew my mind (and still does!) – Recognition that we all have a Soul Mission to go after while we are living NOT sleepwalking! My story is one of self development, self healing, and self actualization to living an intentional life of impact and purpose.
