Self Leadership for Women
Before you can lead others, you must lead yourself.

Before you can lead others, you must lead yourself. What does this mean?

It simply means that before you can successfully lead, manage, or influence others, you must have control over your own life. This does not mean that your life is exactly the way you want it. It does mean, however, that you accept accountability and responsibility for yourself and your life. It means that you are taking action to create the life you want and the person you want to become.

To do this, you need to be aware of what makes you, you. What are your thoughts? Values? Beliefs? Passions? Goals? Motivations? Who are you and why are you the way you are? This helps you determine why you do the things you do. Why we do things is usually more important than what we do.

This applies to your personal life as well as your professional life. Each impacts the other. An important benefit to this is that the skills that make you successful in one aspect of your life can assist you in another aspect. For example, skills that you learn to deal with less-than-desirable co-workers can usually be used to deal with those pesky relatives who refuse to fall off the family tree.

My writing and speaking is designed to provide you with an opportunity to think about various topics. From this you may gain a new perspective about yourself, your motivations, and your actions. After that, it becomes much easier to make changes in your thoughts and behaviors if you decide to do so.

I provide ideas to encourage women to think about what they do, why they do it, and do they want to change. I provide these ideas through writing books, blogs, and a newsletter. I also provide these ideas through speaking engagements, YouTube videos, and a DVD. For additional information, please click the appropriate tab on the right.
