How are you a solution for the team, department, or organization?
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.

The one thing you can do to accelerate your leadership success is to listen deeply to others.
This week, we’re talking about working with natural behaviors to achieve stellar results.
Only when you know what success looks like can you effectively work toward it.
Humans tend to provide feedback around negative behaviors when, in fact, providing feedback around positive behaviors is far more productive in the long run.
When you want someone to change a behavior you need to continue to give them information about their success, otherwise they’ll revert back to old patterns
This week, ignore an irritating but not destructive behavior while watching for a positive behavior that you would like to see expand in its place.
Defining powerful, impactful behavior and recognizing / rewarding it, will help you accelerate success in your team, department, and organization.
As humans, our brains are both quite different from puppy brains and not so very different from puppy brains.
