As we head into another week, I take great pleasure in sharing my curated articles, tips & tools in a short read that will hopefully give you a few ‘aha’ moments as well as some laughter or joy. Most of all I hope it gives you pragmatic inspiration & helps you on your journey to doing what you love, with people you love, making a huge difference, being compensated appropriately with time to pursue other passions – #TheEOSLife.

Here’s this week’s business tip, life hack & find of the week… Some of them are original, most are things I have come across in my weekly pursuit of self-improvement & living a better life, through creating a better business. And don’t forget the inspirational quote, which you can download as a wallpaper or lock screen for your phone.

As always, if you find great things that you’d like to share then feel free to email me for inclusion in one of my weekly newsletters. I’m always looking for new & exciting things to share each week. And if you think someone else would like to receive the newsletter in their inbox, directly from my inbox (no newsletter apps used here!) then please let me know –


Are you really a great leader?

Want to become a better leader? Any change takes time, but knowing where to start your journey starts with a look inward. Get real with yourself.

Easier said than done, right? If you can’t see the forest for the trees, ask trusted colleagues for their assessment of your leadership style. Better yet, ask your people! The results will humble you, regardless of how long you’ve had this role.

Not ready for their tough love yet? Then this article offers nine foolproof ways to become a better leader to set you on the right path:

  1. Practice empathy & grace
  2. Improve your listening skills
  3. Communicate expectations clearly
  4. Learn how to fail
  5. Never stop learning
  6. Praise publicly, constructively criticise privately
  7. Trust the experts
  8. Get great at decision making
  9. Exist to serve your people

If you can’t give yourself at least 80% on these, then read more in the article on EOS Worldwide:


Are you harnessing the human energy in your organisation?

Getting on the same page with all the people in your organisation can be frustrating for leadership teams, but 2022 is going to be your year to eliminate it once and for all!

The 2022 EOS Conference is where you and your entire leadership will make great strides in firming up your EOS foundation by harnessing the human energy in your organization to get:

VISION – Getting everyone in the organization on the same page with where you are going and how you are going to get there.

TRACTION ® – Instilling focus, discipline, and accountability throughout the company so that everyone executes on that vision — every day.

HEALTHY – Helping leaders become a more cohesive, functional, healthy leadership team.

How does this happen in just a couple of days?

Easy! Surround yourself with those who are on the same journey as you.

At the 2022 EOS Conference, you’ll:

  • CONNECT with others on their EOS journey. Other leaders like you who are running their company on EOS.
  • LEARN from subject matter experts, both Implementers who will deepen your knowledge and understanding of the EOS Tools, and others from outside of the EOS Community who will provide opportunities for you to learn other skills to help you grow.
  • STRENGTHEN your implementation of EOS through reinforcing the EOS Tools, learning new tools, and getting back to the basics with new eyes and new excitement.

The 2022 EOS Conference is where you need to be if you’re serious about getting the human energy in your business laser focused on success.

Invest in your leadership team before the end of the year to propel your business forward not only in 2022 but well into the future.

And the one great thing to come out of Covid is that you can now attend these conferences virtually!


Build love maps…

You know that moment at a wedding when the DJ invites all the married people onto the dance floor for a slow dance. Then he says something like, “If you’ve been married less than one year, please leave the floor.” A few moments later, “If you’ve been married less than three years, please leave the floor.”

Then five years. Then ten. Fifteen. Twenty. Fifty. Eventually there are just one or two couples left, someone’s grandparents or even great-grandparents.

Then there’s just the one couple — married 62 years. Their dance is creaky and off-balance, but still, everyone applauds. We cheer and say something like, “Wow! That’s unbelievable.”

Why do we do that? Why are we impressed with these folks? What makes them special? More importantly, what’s their secret? How did they manage to stay together so long?

Find out how you can use love maps to create a long lasting relationship with the current love of your life:


You can’t speed people up – People are ready when they’re ready. You can’t speed people up to meet your needs or timelines.
