A Method to Uncover What You Want
By Jalene Case
What do you want? This question is simple on the surface but the answers to it can sculpt your life, define your goals, and bring a myriad of emotions from frustration to fulfillment. By declaring what you want, you’re also deciding what you don’t want, and drawing a blueprint from which to build your goals. Consider the definition of want: to feel a need or a desire for; wish for. When was the last time you thought about what you truly wanted, desired, wished for?Read More

I’ve worked with so many leaders over the years that when we talk about self-awareness, I’ve heard it again and again: I don’t really know who I am. I don’t know why I am where I’m at, or how I got here.
We have to retrace what caused their decisions about what they studied in school, what their first job was, what roles they accepted. More often than not, they are based on outside influences rather than an intense, deep understanding of who they are. They spend decades realizing that they don’t know who they are, and they still don’t know how to get there!Read More

Eight out of 10 American adults have it—you’ve probably caught it. It’s costing you in more ways than you know. In fact, it is estimated to be costing employers an average of $13,400 per employee per year. What is it? Covid-19 Stress!
The American Psychological Association reports that the mental health consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic have created record-high levels of stress in almost 80% of all adults. At work, this is creating hidden costs through increased turnover, absenteeism, disengagement, unhappiness, loss of innovation, decreased resilience and inability to focus. And all of this adds up to lost productivity and profit. According to the American Institute of Stress, more than 275 million working days per year are lost because of stress.Read More

Imagine a high school where students, and all boys at that, are asked to exhibit leadership in setting student behavior norms, conducting student discipline and maintaining the school’s facilities. At the small all-boys high school I attended, this was exactly what happened. The seniors set the school behavior standards and punishments for all students, managed and maintained the grounds, supported the kitchen and dining room, and facilitated cleaning of the living areas and rooms. It was a unique school.
I learned then, and have seen even more since, that there are good and bad leaders. More importantly, both leadership types have an enormous influence on the culture and interactions of the organizations they lead. At my high school, fierce disciplinarians were mocked behind their backs and avoided as much as possible.Read More
