Is one of your people stuck in a box/rut/overdrive or stasis? Are you stuck in a box/rut/overdrive or stasis because YOU want to find a new way, better way to generate results at a speed of change, challenges, hyper-competition and opportunity that is accelerating?
You are not alone! Statistics tell us that employee engagement and stress caused physical, emotional problems are at an all time high. Is there an upside? You betcha. Resolve to evolve and re-define success. Starting building the Q skills that can take you/your people forward faster, better and happier by helping them optimize strengths while also using changes, challenges, stressors, even failures as a catalyst for their greatest potential. (Happier? Yes, neuroscience confirms that we need to prime our brains to be happy to optimize their potential.)
Resolve to Evolve
Do not get sidetracked by the symptoms of disengagement, frustration, stasis we face can take you off the beaten path, fighting symptoms rather than addressing the root cause of the problems you need to transform into effective solutions. Fighting the symptoms of what is not working may give you temporary satisfaction, but it will not help you ideate, communicate, collaborate and succeed forward. The need to build a new mindset and skill set that helps us optimize talent and potential at the speed of change/challenges is real and critical!
Resolve to evolve. Get the right people on your bus and help them to build essential skills, skills that grow at the speed of change and challenges by using strengths, changes, challenges, stressors and failures to build their 3Q Edge™:
Q1: IQ Enhanced ideation, focus, strategic thought, ability to learn-relearn
Q2: EQ Self awareness, awareness of others, self management, relationship management, communication, resiliency, risk tolerance
Q3: SQ Purpose, values, integrity-the timeless anchors of true leadership, sustainability and the grit to forge ahead when the going gets tough!
Resolve to evolve. Take the automatic fear response out of change, by focusing on the only thing that is sustainable and timeless…Q3 Reset the internal and organizational GPS focusing on the purpose, integrity, values that are the only consistent, stable course of comfort and sustainability we have and will have. Make purpose = profit your mantra, and the mantra of your organization.
Resolve to evolve. Stasis is a recipe for disaster, rigidity of thought, communication and action is a time bomb ready to explode and destroy your potential and the potential of your organization from inside out. Big organizations, SMEs, professional services providers, start-ups, entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs all face the critical imperative to re-examine and re-gig how they motivate, empower, optimize, recognize, optimize and realize talent and results.

Start using problems to drive innovative solutions that take us forward individually and collectively. The problems that unite us in a new non-linear eco system, a new world and workplace where changes, challenges, stressors, complexity and opportunity will continue to accelerate faster than ever before are as great as our potential to USE them to LEARN-RELEARN, COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE and SUCCEED Forward.
Resolving to evolve means realizing your ability to ignite, engage and stoke the fire of human potential, because nothing could be more important! Get the right people on your bus, and work with them to optimize, humanize, monetize in ways that take you forward. REACH Forward and the future will REACH back to YOU!
