Monday Morning Business Coach

What is the Monday Morning Business Coach?

For over 10 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.

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.

Let ’em know who you are

So often, when people go into a job interview, they feel they have to hide who they are and act in ways that they believe will impress the interviewer.  As coaches, we are passionate about supporting people in stepping into their leadership in navigating their careers.  Yes, you need to be professional, respectful, thoughtful and articulate about the ways that you are a solution to the organization.  Also, consider what it would be like to think of yourself as sitting…
