What is the Monday Morning Business Coach?
For over seven years and running, every Monday morning we've sent out an email containing an executive coaching "nugget"—a simple, practical tip or strategy for you to easily take action on to start off your work week. We use the situations of our clients (anonymously, of course) as well as what we're pondering or reading about to write a short post—we keep it short because we know your life is busy and you need the "quick tips" to solve your problems, help you focus, and move you forward. We're not claiming we can solve every issue, but we aim to give you the knowledge and wisdom to help you find your own power and create the future you want. You can view past posts below.
Why should I subscribe?
It's FREE, and it will go straight to your inbox, so you won't have to look around for it. The post of the week could be just what you need. We always aim to make the MMBC succinct and actionable: the one thing you can do that week to claim your power in your life, work, and community.
How do I subscribe?

As a small business trying to make a larger impact in the world, we'll occasionally send you other emails with useful content or information about our other offerings. If you ever want off the list or aren't finding our posts useful, you can always unsubscribe.

We’ve witnessed the power that great questions have to create opportunities for innovation, problem solving, and higher levels of thinking.
Today, we’re sharing some of the questions that we’ve found invite higher levels of input and expand critical thinking.
Leadership, as we define it, is the willingness to influence your world and the willingness to be influenced by your world.
We have recently been working with the leadership teams of two very different companies where the proverbial sh!t has hit the fan . . . through no fault of their own. A sad fact: Bad things can happen to good companies, which means that bad things can also happen to good people in those companies. Figuring…
Last week we finished up the Your Dream Job series and shared a video synopsis of Daniel H. Pink’s book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.
