Five Tips to Prevent OverLoad

Posted by: Michelle Pape on Feb 28, 2019

The speed at which business and life operates seems to be overwhelming these days.

We rush out of bed, rush to get ready, rush to the office and then rush all day to get projects done and meet deadlines. Many times though it seems like the faster we work, the more work that piles up, and the harder we try to get caught up the more it sometimes feels like we fall behind. We are stressed. We are anxious. We are tired.

 You need more space.

You need more margin.

You need more peace.

But how?

 

Building Resilience

Posted by: Michelle Pape on Jan 24, 2019

Do you know any rubber-band people? People who, no matter what happens to them, always seem to bounce back. Despite whatever is going on in their life, an illness, a family tragedy, some bad luck, or any other type of misfortune, it never seems to keep them down. Life can stretch them to their breaking point, but – like a rubber band – they always find a way back to their original shape.

Changing the world might seem like an insurmountable task, but I believe that’s because many people approach changing the world in the wrong way. They focus on trying to create wide-sweeping changes in the political and social structures around them.

5 Principles great leaders believe in

Posted by: Michelle Pape on Jun 26, 2018

Great leadership can be a difficult thing to understand. We certainly know a good leader when we’re working for one (or not working for one for that matter), but it's difficult to explain the specific actions that make a good leader so effective. Great leadership is dynamic. It changes us for the better, because a good leader helps us see the best for ourselves because ultimately they believe in us.  

The only certainty is a leader’s actions are driven by their principles. It’s through a leader’s actions that the essence of great leadership becomes apparent. Great leaders inspire trust and admiration through their actions, not just their words. They believe in their people, and this belief drives them to create an environment where people thrive. So let’s explore some of the driving principles that set great leaders apart.

Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy

Posted by: Michelle Pape on Apr 19, 2018

You’ve set your goals. You know what you want. You know what you need to do.

But you’re stuck.

Maybe you’re making excuses, procrastinating or feeling apathetic. Maybe you’re settling for less or convincing yourself of inadequacy. Or maybe you’re hiding because doubt, fear and worry have left you paralyzed by stress. Whatever it is, you’re doing the exact opposite of what you set out to do. You are sabotaging your own success.
