July 2022 Newsletter - Cut to the chase! What do you have to gain?

There’s a lot more to gain than you think.. (No cliché ‘What do you have to lose?‘ bits here). When you are showing up all in, upfront, and in alignment with doing what you say you're going to do – you are guaranteed to learn, grow, and gain beyond measure, sooner than later. And isn’t time the one thing we never have enough of?

How many of us programmatically answer ‘good’ the second we hear, “Hi – how are you?” even if we feel hella crappy that day or we’re going through tough times personally? How many of us don’t say or do what we should when we should - because we fear feelings will be hurt, it’s not the right time, or we’re not brave enough to deal with consequences? Who are we helping in the long run? Certainly not ourselves, our businesses, or the people we lead…

What IF:

  • Vulnerability and honesty were more accessible? How could our connections and impact improve?
     

  • You were armed with data and strategies to gracefully navigate difficult conversations, so that you effectively and proactively hold those around you accountable?
     

  • The organization you are a part of had such a strong, team reinforced culture that deviation into inauthenticity and inefficiency would, like dominoes, resolve itself without you, saving you - their leader - time and effort?!
     

  • You no longer held back constructive criticism that could be helpful (it’s a long run people, and pretense or hope are not strategies!), but instead are skilled in delivering the good, the bad, whatever is needed at the time to drive things forward while improving team dynamics and your role as a leader? Confidence and commitment to company values allowed you to purge less than ideal clients and employees as needed - so that your organization continuously improves to the point where it is valued in line with your expertise and contributions? What you do will be less of a chore and more of an inspiration. The ‘never work a day in your life if you’re doing what you love’ can be a real thing!

Hit us up if you need, want, and are receptive to getting your Financial, Operational, People, and Cultural strategies and processes dialed in.

Credit Cards

Leverage your healthy (personal) credit scores in securing a 0% balance transfer to pay off debt over a longer horizon, interest free. These must be paid off before the balance transfer term expires, or you will be on the hook for double digit interest rates on the entire balance.
