Outside of The Box

The meaning of Outside the Box:

Think creatively, unimpeded by orthodox or conventional constraints.

For more than a decade I studied and taught rote methods for communication and business management. Generic models for success were developed and learned for greater leadership. The single thought was if it works for him it must work for me. I know that is simply not true. Fortunately, with experience comes wisdom.

Not a week goes by that a client doesn't ask me what everyone else is doing. My response is generally, "First tell me what YOU want to do and how." Which leads to the answer, "I don't know." While there are certain business practices that are just plain good business, who YOU are and what YOU do is entirely up to you.

Deep down you do KNOW what you want. Giving yourself permission to think outside of the box is the first step in believing its possible to achieve. Let your heart lead you and your mind will catch up. Blend passion, possibilities and practicality to achieve your personal and professional best. You wont find that in a box!

I know that simply said, does not mean simply done. That is why I help women uncover their desires, guide them to their own solutions and provide support to help them achieve a certain outcome. I start by getting them out of the box.

    This tip is so true...but what I am most amazed at, is that I thought that I was the only one that felt this way.

    I am so thrilled that you have started this dialog.

    Thanks and I will be looking forward to more eye-popping, head spinning, stimulation and challenges!


Thanks for tuning in and sharing your thoughts or experiences. Leadership or wine related -- it's all good.
