Twenty nineteen is all about getting to the next level. It about taking, getting, and making the most of opportunities, whether it’s a promotion, new job, or other exciting opportunity. The question is, how do you attract the best opportunities for you?
Have you ever thought about chucking your job or career? Is 2019 your year?! I’ve been there—I jumped off the career cliff in 2002 and have been happily following my passion in the form of a career ever since.
You’re a part of the executive team; your colleagues ask you for advice. That is… most of the time. It’s not that you’re left out; it’s just that the CEO and your other team members don’t quite view you as an essential trusted advisor.
Have you ever wondered why some teams just rock? It’s not just that they have fun, but they surmount every problem with a sense of ease and excitement. And everyone is a valued member of the team. And, face it, you’re envious.
Have you noticed how some people – some leaders – are always seem well rested even though you know they work harder than most? They never break a sweat and nothing seems to faze them.

You are great at what you do! So great, in fact, that you’ve been promoted to manage your former peers (the subject of an upcoming blog post). There’s just one problem: You are overwhelmed because you are doing your old job in addition to managing others.

How will you learn the necessary management skills?!
