Do you wish you could “create more time”? Who doesn’t??? The reality is that although we cannot create more than 24 hours on the clock, we can “create time” in our days by adjusting both how we think about them, and by how we approach them.
Have you ever experienced that you get more done the day before you are leaving to go on vacation than you do on most other days? Why is this? It is because you approach the day differently. You are so focused on wanting to wrap things up so that you can go on vacation and not have to worry about work that, as a result, you work more efficiently and with more focus.

I have always wanted to give every employee on my team an opportunity to shine and to grow. I believe that “great leaders make...

The culture of an organization and/or a team is very important to its overall success. As leaders, our goal is to have employees who want to come to work, who want to work hard for the success of the organization and who feel proud about what they do each day.
We want employees who are emotionally committed to their place of employment. Unfortunately, this is not the reality for many organizations and, although they vary, statics show that less than half of the workforce is actually engaged in what they do day to day.
Does this mean that they are unhappy or disgruntled? Not necessarily. Someone could show up and like the people they work with, have fun at work and appreciate the paycheck the receive; however, this does not mean they feel connected or committed to the work they do each day.
When employees are not engaged, their effort is not as strong. When employees are not engaged,...
