Leadership is nothing if not an inherently creative act. As a leader, you create a feeling when you walk into a room, a reality for others by the words you choose to speak, and specific outcomes and results by the actions you take.
In our rush from one conversation or meeting to another, we rarely take the time to reflect on what we are creating, and thus, we often make unnecessary work for ourselves. Slowing ourselves and others down just might be the most important discipline to develop this holiday season.
Here’s how to start:
Each morning set five minutes on a clock and do the following.
This one, five-minute exercise has the potential to be the most important five minutes you invest. Do this until it becomes a habit, a way of starting each day so that you can lead yourself, and therefore others, well in 2020.
The world needs you at your very best!

Our world has changed, rapidly and in unexpected ways. As the crisis hit, I offered and held pro bono sessions with leaders from around the world. And I want to continue to do what I can to help. As a result, I now offer hourly sessions to ensure leaders everywhere can quickly get the perspective, clarity and focus they need to lead themselves, and therefore others, well during these challenging and uncertain times.
