How to Fail Forward? “Adopt a Growth Mindset.” “Leave your fixed mindset behind and take on a growth mindset.” "Failure is not an option." "Failure is not an option." We’ve all heard these quips before and likely spent less than a minute contemplating what they mean. On the surface, the advice seems simple: you either feel stuck—fixed—or you grow. Not much else to understand, right? On the contrary, I believe it should be every business executive’s goal to spend some time thinking about what these terms mean and how they can be applied in their lives and leadership because these terms aren’t just about growing versus standing still. They are about one of my favorite subjects: failure. Let’s start by reviewing how these two characterizations of mindsets [...]

Three Tips To Crush Personal Branding!

Few things are more important than your personal brand. Your resume is not. Your alma mater is not. The number of followers you have? No way. And that killer photo you posted that garnered 50,000 likes? Nope, not that either. And there’s a reason. Your personal brand precedes you, and it stays around after you leave. It’s what you stand for, the values you embrace, and the way in which you express those values. It’s how people learn about you, and it’s how they will remember you. By definition, it is you. And that’s exactly why you should spend time thinking about it and developing it. It may just be the most important thing you can do for your reputation and your career. Today, I want to [...]

Outgrowing Your Networking Circle? Do This to Create an Environment for Success.

In this blog series, Show Me Your Friends, I’ll Show You Your future, our goal is to build and sustain a networking circle that positions you to be a leader, form relationships with influential people, and become the greatest version of yourself. In the first blog, How to Build Strategic Relationships and Networks, I taught you how to identify your value system and think about how the people in your current circle fit in it. The phrase, "Show me your friends, I’ll show you your future,” means knowing yourself: your morals, your ethics, your character, and surrounding yourself with people who similarly view life. When I see your friends, it will give me tremendous insight into who you are.  Think of these people as your team. Your [...]

Now, make a list of 1-10. Write out your most important values -- work ethics, spirituality, morals, character, etc. --  within yourself. Words like respect. Loyalty. Character. Courage. Love. Me? Giving is a [...]
