Q is for Questions

3/3/2021
I would argue that one big mistake new leaders make is assuming everyone assumes they have all the answers to every question. You don't have all the answers. You'll never have all the answers. No great leader has every answer. But great leaders DO learn what questions to ask, who to ask, and how to ask them so that they have the right answers at almost any moment! Listen to this podcast to figure out the who/what/how on asking questions. Are you ready to lead? Take this 10 item...

P is for Pivot: Interview with Pastor Nate Stonestreet

2/24/2021
Prepare to Pivot! Some of you have already learned this the hard way during the pandemic, but leaders do need to be prepared to pivot. Sometimes your vision is perfect, but an imperfect world can de-rail the path towards that vision. I started to do this as a solo episode, but I thought it was better to go straight to the source: my very young church pastor, Nate Stonestreet, who had just taken over leading the church when Covid19 shut the doors on in-person services. You don't have to be...

If you're used to being motivated by fear of failure, use this episode to learn why realistic optimism can propel you and your organization to great success. Are you ready to lead? Take this 10 item assessment at Bright Insights Media.

M is for Meditation

9/21/2020
Meditation isn't just spiritual chants and yoga. It's not just stuff you can use an app for, either. It can be done many ways. And if you are a leader that feels lost in your role, listen to me explain three reasons why I think you should try meditation. I wish I had learned how to do this when I served in the Air Force!

H is for Health: How to stay healthy as a leader

7/14/2020
When you get into management and leadership, it's easy for your self-care to slip. Your planned times to work out and eat right can get muddled. So how do you stay on track? I enlisted help from my good friend Charity Borlek. She is a fitness and nutrition expert that runs her own gym just north of the Bay Area in California. But, more importantly, she is someone who had her own health struggles as she became an entrepreneur that, ironically, lost track of her health while she was...

Go for a walk mini-episode

7/9/2020
This is a mini-episode about how to take a healthy walk for your mind- and not your body! A mind-healthy walk, as short as five minutes, can significantly change the trajectory of your day in a good way. But there are three key things you need to know and do to make it a walk where you can focus on "not focusing" on your life. One of those things can include the right type of music, and I feature music from my good friend Ivan Howard and his band, Howard Ivans. You can find more Howard...

E is for Emotional IQ

6/17/2020
Hello, Bright Lights! We're resuming the A to Z series with this episode on Emotional IQ. Yes, Emotional IQ is a buzz phrase that's spreading in the business and leadership world. While some old school leaders may feel like it's a trending concept and that business is about metrics more than anything, learning how to understand your subordinate's emotions and moods could indicate why some metrics are going on a negative trend. And from an ROI perspective, what if investing an hour a week...
