Welcome to the
The Unlimited Newsletter...
you excited to start back to work in January and now that February is
here, you're feeling overwhelmed and burnt out? If so, I encourage you
to take a step back and think about what you need to do to broaden your
perspective and not allow your to-do list to swallow you up! For me, I
meditate as a way to silence my mind. Sometimes the calm in the middle
of the storm is what I need to refocus myself and re-energize so I can
approach my life in a different way.
is a tremendously value tool I have found to be under-utilized by
leaders. And quite frankly, we are the group that probably needs it the
most! We are busy, multi-taskers who are also the decision makers for
our organizations. Because of our hectic lives and travel schedules, we
tend to get worn down and then our health can become impacted.
Meditation has been such a turning point for me in my life regarding
clarity of mind and self-care that I actually now offer it as part of
Potential Unlimited's offerings to my clients. Find out more about Meditation Services offered to leaders and organizations through Potential Unlimited.
Enjoy the ride!

What Can You Learn About Leadership And Succession Planning From A Canada Goose?
Geese tell an interesting story every time you see them fly in the sky.
Do you know why they fly in a V pattern? One goose always appears to be
the leader at the front, but in fact that is not true. Geese will take
turns leading the flock and facing the brunt of the wind and weather
conditions as they break the trail for the others. It is easier to
follow, but they all know at some point it is their turn to step up and
lead the group. That is the only way they will learn how to do it. To
actually be put out front and have the others follow them. If one goose
goes down for any reason, they will never do it by themselves. Others
will break away from the group to support that bird so it can make
its way back up and connect with their group again.
often use this story in my teambuilding retreats, but today I want to
talk about it in terms of leadership and succession
planning. Learn more about this...
