We all assess how we’re feeling physically on a daily basis and use that data to inform our decisions. (If our knee hurts, we don’t run that day.) But we don’t do that with our mental health. Despite the fact that it drives our physical health and the way we see the world, we tend to consider mental wellness a luxury rather than a foundational piece of our wellbeing. Today, we’re joined by Alexa James, the Executive Director of the Chicago Chapter for the National Alliance on Mental Illness...

Anger: What It Is and How to Use It for Good!

4/1/2020
“Anybody can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose and in the right way? That is not within everybody’s power—and is not easy.” —Aristotle We’ve been socialized to see anger as a bad thing. So, we ignore it and let it fester. Or we lose control and unleash it. But what if there’s a third option? What if we can learn to work WITH our anger and channel it to, say, solve problems or fight for...

Habits That Make You a Better Leader

3/4/2020
A habit is not something you do sometimes. Even something you do ‘most of the time’ doesn’t qualify. To be a true habit, the practice has to be a part of you.

Today, we are sharing the five areas of habit development that have the greatest impact on leadership prowess. We discuss the communication habits...
