Welcome to my Spontaneous Metaphor Booth!
Executive leaders, your engagement is crazy important. Your team engagement will effect your overall success!
Engagement is the most valuable measure of employee productivity and loyalty. Ensuring that your employees have creative, playful, healthy connected opportunities for their work will help them serve others without getting burned out. Focusing on their engagement will revolutionize your experience as a leader as you all become more engaged, purposeful, and healthy and achieve catalytic results. And when your employees are engaged you have less turnover and recruitment expenses, less conflict management and way more creative solutions.
So, if you are looking for ways to keep your employees ignited, even during change, uncertainty or even chaos, these strategies are for you.
Here are three simple strategies for getting 100% employee engagement
Number 1. Be Vulnerable Share your current reality. Even if it...
As executive leaders, our role is to influence change and make a positive impact in the world. We must have responsive, effective, collective human connections to influence change.
People will lean in and be vulnerable with you if they trust you and feel connected to you. We must be intentional about our reactions in times of crisis and RESPOND with empathy. Empathy is an attempt to understand a different perspective. Empathy is feeling with another person and is essential for us in order to lead without fear, inspire trust and be clear, kind and direct.
So, if you are and executive leader, looking for empathetic ways to respond to your teams, Please stick around. YOU are NOT alone!

Let's revolutionize your leadership experience!
In times of crisis and uncertainty, anxiety and stress are high. This means we are in an inflammatory state and our minds and bodies shift to fight or flight stress response. This is helpful short term, however if we stay in this reaction, it wears on our bodies and our spirits and we become less effective. Ongoing stress response is not sustainable. PLUS its crazy distracting.
Taking breaks can give you breakthroughs in your cognitive thinking work and decrease your stress and anxiety response which will help you have sustainable energy for your important work.
So, if you are experiencing stress and anxiety and leading in crisis, YOU are NOT alone!
I wish for you to lead from your best best, most playful , engaging, creative self so oyou can impact and influence others in a positive way. AND we get catalytic results!
So here are 3 great breaks you can take during times...
Time. We often let it become the bane of our existence, trying to do all the things, feeling like there’s not enough time for everything.
Can you relate?
But here’s the thing…
Truth Bomb: Time is going to keep moving. There's literally nothing you can do about it.
Don’t despair though. While we can’t control time, we can manage our energy. Which in turn helps us manage our day and our productivity levels.
By engaging and managing your energy you can get more done and in way that feels good to you. Not busy or stressful.
Here are some leadership tips to help you engage your energy:
1. Consider your physical body: are you getting sleep, nutritious food, water, daily movement?
2. Check in with your spiritual self: what do you do to connect to purpose and self? Do things that give you a sense of calm and clarity.
3. Tend to your mental activity: stimulate your mind with learning and activity, but give your mind time to recover by...
We are accustomed to being around people and being connected in order to influence change and be effective as leaders.
When we are in a global crisis that makes that connection difficult, how do we fix that disconnect as well as continue to be creative, innovative, and present for our work and our team?
