The matriarch of popular psychology, Dr. Joyce Brothers, passed away last week. She was an American pioneer, providing pointed insights on topics like relationships, power and money in the early days of television. My favorite Dr. Brothers observation: “We’re all trying to better ourselves…whether homemaker or executive, we all share a need to improve our lives.” Dr. Brothers paved the way for coaches like me: making positive psychology a popular discussion for good leaders who want to get to the next level.
I believe Dr. Brothers would embrace our work around personal leadership and our programs to help good leaders get to the ‘next level.’ We’ve been studying and coaching leaders for several years now and I’ve come to this conclusion:
Good leaders want to work less, have more fun and create better results. Is this possible?…Dr. Brothers built a legacy helping us all believe it’s possible. The secret: learning how to have a strong and stable command of our own personal leadership and knowing how to get powerful people working together. Are you ready?
Last week at the Good Leadership Breakfast, we launched Good Leadership Certification to help leaders like you reach the next level. It’s a pilot project for what we believe will be the next level of the Good Leadership movement. Watch the video here. We believe this is a magnetic concept, because within 24 hours we enrolled the first three of 36 participants. Our friends at Lurie Besikof Lapidus & Company eagerly agreed to sponsor and co-host the program.
I have good reason to believe group coaching programs will be the wave of the future. Recently, my friends Paul Dominski and Brandon Sullivan helped me complete a groundbreaking research project with Matt Norman, President of Dale Carnegie Training of the Upper Midwest. The How Leaders Grow Today research articulates “mentoring” and “resource networks” as two of the four most powerful ingredients for how leaders fuel their own development. Get the research summary here.
Good leaders make a habit of seeking out the best coaches to help them get to the next level. And they surround themselves with good leaders — because when good leaders work together with good intentions, great things are possible.
Drop me a note and share what you think: is it possible for you to work less, have more fun and get better results?
