When The Seas Of Change Swirl Around You, Will You Stand Strong?

When change happens do you fear you’ll lose yourself? This is a common fear, one I’ve shared with many of my clients. Before I removed and transformed this fear, we feared if we allowed a specific change to happen that we could lose the life we created.

While these events happen to get our attention unfortunately it’s common for the underlying message to be unnoticed, the lesson to go unlearned and/or the direction to be unchanged.

The Soul of A Business™: People

As we near the end of our journey into the soul of your business, we have two very important core elements that remain: People and Relationships. While Love is the core element that fuels the heart, People and Relationships are the heart because companies, especially professional service firms, cannot survive without them.

The Soul of A Business™: Culture

Culture is the fifth of nine core elements that make up The Soul of A Business™ and is the most transparent from an outsider’s perspective. When clearly defined within a company, Culture is a powerful energy that unites The Business Trinity™ (the leaders, employees and customers).
