The route to success has changed!

Because times have changed. We’ve changed. In what we want at work and in life. In how we do business, how we connect and how we buy.  With competition and critics a click away. New pressures on our relationships and in our families. And an increasing sense of callousness around us.

Today, success depends on people (including us) who feel valued, connected, on purpose and happier.

It requires: 

  • Igniting the sense of contribution and drive for excellence that yields top companies, winning careers, leading entrepreneurs and the happiest people and relationships.
  • Showing up confidently, not shrinking from praise or the spotlight—so you stand out at work and in life, not blend in.
  • Breaking through what’s stopping you, to get the work or life of your dreams into the world, now, as only you can.

HOW? Harnessing human essentials, like the hidden powers of appreciation, encouragement, empathy, that unleash our inner greatness.

While these ‘softer skills’ are often overlooked or misused, they’re powerful, practical, proven, by the latest studies on human performance and on happiness, by neuroscience, positive psychology and emotional intelligence. And by organizations and individuals thriving at the top—and making a greater positive difference in the world.

You know that feeling that you get when someone gives you a compliment? Or how about that fluttery feeling when that special someone smiles at you and catches your eye.

Those are good feelings, aren’t they?

What if you were able to call them up at any time? 

Stop being your own worst enemy

We talk ourselves out of things that are good for us, we talk ourselves in to things that are no good for us.

We don’t even get out of the gate with some projects because of the self-critical and even sabotaging talk we tell ourselves.

And, we know darn well that if our best friends were to talk to themselves like that we would never allow it. We’d stop them dead in their tracks and point out all their wonderful attributes and even then some.
