#22 – The Things You're Not Saying

by Sue Hawkes

#22- The Things You’re Not Saying Frequently in my work with leaders and their leadership teams, I facilitate dialogues they are waiting to have. They may not always know it, but they are. The beauty of being an “outsider,” a consultant, someone paid to help them gracefully work through the tough stuff, is that you must be willing to be…

#21 – Is It Time For a Change?

#21 – Is It Time For a Change?  “If you choose the entrepreneurial life, then don’t become an employee in your own business…” – Dan Sullivan I recently had the honor of seeing Dan Sullivan at an EOS event I was attending. When he said the quote above I thought, that’s where every one of our clients begins their work…

#20 – Inspiration is Full Circle

by Sue Hawkes

#20 Inspiration is Full Circle  It’s an amazing thing to realize you’ve made a difference when you were unaware. In fact, it’s one of the best experiences I can think of. Yesterday, a dear friend and fellow Certified EOS Implementer, Marisa Smith, sent me a video of her daughter, Charlotte singing a song. Her daughter is a talented, vibrant and…

#19 – 20 Pounds in a 10 Pound Bag

by Sue Hawkes

#19 – 20 Pounds in a 10 Pound Bag We’re busy people. We are goal setters and problem solvers and doers. These are my people. They run businesses and lead people. Sitting still is not something they do well unless truly fatigued. So how do we truly become content amidst all we’re accomplishing? My theory is this: you have to…

#18 – Traveling in a Group

by Sue Hawkes

#18 Traveling in a Group  It’s interesting to travel in groups. You laugh, learn and morph with the ebb and flow of people as you move from event to event – especially during a retreat.   You can learn a lot about yourself and others in the nooks and crannies of your experience, both directly and indirectly. Sometimes it seems someone…

#17 – Rewriting the Story

by Sue Hawkes

#17 – Rewriting the Story I’m at a women’s retreat offsite with a group of amazing women CEOs who are both colleagues and friends, and it’s International Women’s Day. We’re having incredible experiences we’ve worked hard for, learning with one another and from other powerful leaders we’ve invited into our circle. It’s an experience of excellence, learning and joy interrupted…

#16 – Earned Not Given

by Sue Hawkes

#16 – Earned Not Given We’re working out at our gym and I’m particularly sluggish today. It’s a rare state for me as I usually run on high energy and early mornings are some of my best hours of the day. I’m not resistant to the gym. I enjoy working out and being active. So I’m not managing self-talk about…

#15 – You Trained Them

by Sue Hawkes

#15 You Trained Them We complain all the time about how others behave. Our family, friends, employees, co-workers, those serving us, even other drivers. The list is endless really, it can extend to celebrities, politicians and other influencers. Those people we are often unable to directly influence, but we complain nonetheless. It’s interesting when you think of those people we…

#14 – When Did We Forget?

by Sue Hawkes

#14 When Did We Forget? In several discussions in the past year, many people have disclosed their life seems to be happening to them, rather than their life occurring more by design. For most of these leaders, it’s a product of over-committing and adding all kinds of priorities without re-calibrating their lives. How often should we re-calibrate? As often as…

#13 – Creatures of Habit

by Sue Hawkes

#13 – Creatures of Habit Most of us are creatures of habit. Beyond our twenties, we don’t make the time often enough to step back and assess how closely the life we’re living aligns with the life we imagine we should, would or could be living. Some questions to consider if you’re wondering: When is the last time you envisioned…
