I'm taking a little time off from blogging. Should be posting again mid June.

Two reasons:
1. Celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.
2. Launching a new venture that will transform how Physical Therapy Private Practice is conducted and rewarded. We have begun with 6 independent practices from across the USA and will be inviting a second round of practices to join us over the summer. If you are a private practice owner, particularly one with Applied Functional Science interests, please get in touch with me SOON.

All The Best!

Leadership - Matters

Leadership is not about being important or influential. It's about helping people to realize their potential, to remember the values that are shared, To focus on the purpose to be achieved, to realize what it is they are building, and why it matters.  

So what matters?

All The Best!

Leadership - Getting Personal

Leadership is about change. If change isn't the priority, a good manager will do.

Change involves both individuals and a collective community. 

Individual change always precedes community change. 

Individuals change when provoked at an emotional level. But most change initiatives are premised on rational information - facts and figures, the bigger the better typically. Most such initiatives fail to deliver change.

Change is driven by emotion not rationality. In fact, we might say that change is driven by irrationality. Science and history has demonstrated that repeatedly. 

People are first and foremost emotional creatures. They need to be emotionally changed to support change.

Change occurs one person at a time. Each person wants to know just one thing - how will the change affect ME. It's not selfish, its just human nature.  

Whether we are changing policies for a handful of people or changing lives on a global scale, there is one important understanding to never loose sight off...

To be and effective leader, Get PERSONAL...with yourself and others! 

All the Best!
