Meetings and more meetings
Meetings have become a necessary part of doing business. However, too many meetings are unfocused and lack a clear purpose or objective. The result is meetings for the sake of meetings. In our Emerging Leader Journey within Inspired Leadership, we have a whole module dedicated to meeting management. It sounds, kinda dull… but actually really is an opportunity for emerging leaders to shine.
A meeting attendee that is more prepared and more focused for a meeting tends to end up running the meeting!! As we all know virtual meetings are our new and often only “go to” option for meetings, and our partners at ZOOM (who are the core of so many of our meetings) shared a great checklist to help us.

The difference between goal setting and wishful thinking
The start of the year lends itself to creating a list of shiny resolutions. I am sure you have made your fair share. However, the humbling reality is that most resolutions are forgotten or abandoned by February. Gyms love this cycle, as you sign up with determination in January and then just pay the monthly subscription for 11 inactive months (COVID notwithstanding). There is however a giant gap between resolutions and realistic goal setting to achieve a desired future, that energizes you and propels you to act. Read this blog for more and join in the practical Virtual Connect on Vision and Goal-setting to move from theory to application.

The Art of Mindful Decision Making – Free Webinar 24 Feb (2pm Central)
We each make thousands of decisions a day — up to 70,000 according to research. Yet far too many of these decisions are made under emotional duress, stress, anxiety, and pressure. When this happens, the rational control center of your brain is no longer in charge, having been replaced by the emotional control center. Join Steven Howard from Caliente Leadership, a certified Inspired Leadership Channel Partner as he shares insights from his award-winning book: Better Decisions, Better Thinking, Better Outcomes.

Women are 15% less likely to be promoted to the next level as compared to men and at the current pace, it will take more than a century before gender equality is achieved in the C-suite. A McKinsey study shows that women have the potential to be better leaders than men but still are underrepresented. Join in on a panel discussion with our partners Enabling World, as they explore this subject on Wednesday 17 Feb.
