Leadership Matters Newsletter Archive

With everything in our world upside down and in flux, change seems to be here to stay. How are you going to be a positive leader for the changes that affect your life and work? What really matters when it comes to leadership? These days, it is essential to manage your energy, establish your priorities and stay focused on what matters most to you. In the three minutes it takes you to read my essay, you will receive a new idea or skill each month to help you clarify what matters most to you and incorporate the daily practices that will help you receive what you want.


For six years I wrote my monthly newsletter under the title Politics of Hope (see POH archives below). The new Leadesrhip Matters newsletter will include the same helpful leadership tips for a broader audience of leaders and managers.
