Be nothing if not courageous.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?

 

Inspiration is the music of creative intelligence.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our gift of creative intelligence must be there to inspire ourselves and others.

Our intuition is a special gift, with deep roots in our unconscious brains [lizard brains].

Our ability to inspire is linked to our creative intelligence and intuition - a wonderful aspect of our 'human condition'.

Your personality strengths give you a chance. What you do with them today is what really counts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Your personality may take a back seat to what you do...especially when the going gets tough.

We judge others by what they do.

We trust others by what they do. 

Others do the same to us.

If trust is at the heart of meaningful business relationships, insight is in the brain.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Trust, based on a history of past experiences, is not enough to guarantee business relationships contain value. When insight is added to trust, business relationships can thrive.

Self-control is a double-edged force: when it's strong it builds confidence; when it's weak it builds fear.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we exhibit self-control we build our own confidence and this can be contagious, with confidence spreading from one person to the next.

When we exhibit lack of self-control our confidence shrinks..and this too tends to be contagious.

If you want to win someone over then let him know that you know what he does when he is at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people take at least some pride in their work...so they tell others about what they do when they are at work. 

Few people have the interest or take to time to truly listen to others, so they never really hear let alone remember what others tell them.

You can listen. You can remember. You can let others know you care about what they do at work.

You can inspire people!
