The Ideal Team Player

I just attended the Willowcreek Leadership Summit last week and as always it was incredible. Each year I attend I leave encouraged by the new things I learn and confirmations of what I’m already doing. It’s personally and professionally very rewarding and I highly recommend attending it!

I’m never ever disappointed by what Patrick Lencioni delivers–ever. I’ve got all of his books on my shelf and look forward to each new one he writes.

We hold beliefs and values and attach meaning to everything based on them. We develop a “frame,” or mental structure that helps us organize […]


Standards of excellence are not chiseled in stone. They are constantly being redefined. It is important to recognize that what was graded excellent last year may not be so this year. That is why we must keep mastering new skills. –Bob Biehl

Do you know why?

Goals are good. When it comes to setting them and measuring progress, we ask all the right questions and use the right metrics to move forward and accomplish them; who, what, where, when, etc? The answers to those questions keep us on track, focused, purposeful. We measure, calculate, recalculate…it’s mostly tangible. The hardest part to measure, is the […]
