Where Does Your
Development Stand?
The Monthly Leader is your go-to leadership and professional development resource. Its sections come from real world experience and underlying themes in leadership coaching.

Every section here is a tool for you to utilize. Even if a current event is covered here, the leadership lessons in it endure and are timeless. Keep in mind, whether you review all the sections today or come back to them as a reference later ( Newsletter Archives section at the bottom), the material will support your strategy to move yourself forward. 

In this issue, you’ll find this month's episode of the  Coach It Out With Everyday Leaders podcast featuring Molly Goodine. Molly serves as Supervisor of Special Services of the public school system in Bristol, Connecticut, and is devoted to both her "kiddos" and her hometown. In the episode, you can hear Molly explain the sources behind her drive to-date -- the experiences she's carried with her along the way. Remember, no matter what our own industry may be, we can all learn from someone else's perspective.

(There’s always hearty laugh with Molly, so I switched up my picture to match hers.)

assessing inspiration in your life:
The Leadership Exchange

The Leadership Exchange section of The Monthly Leader will include questionnaires from people across various fields, professions, and points in career. It will serve as a representation of various views and perspectives of leadership. This exposure to other ideas is important to our own growth and development. We can all benefit by reading about people we might not necessarily meet in our day-to-day lives. We can all inspire each other more than we might know.

Here is a sample to get an idea of the kind of information we can share. 


This questionnaire poses questions about the student experience. Through it, students are asked to assess their own view of, and development in, leadership. It's also their opportunity to convey to leaders what they're looking for in a leader.

Recent Graduate

This questionnaire asks those who graduated within the last two years to compare what their expectation of leadership lessons was before they graduated, and how it compares to their real world experience since they left school. This helps bridge students into real world leadership.

This questionnaire asks those who have been firmly established in their careers to assess and share their leadership lessons so others can gain insight, tips, and understanding of the leadership attributes required in that professional's industry.


This questionnaire seeks to learn more about what it is that drives our entrepreneurs and how their lessons in leadership both shaped their initial goals and continue to drive them to work toward their successes.

    Do You Agree?
    "Those who reject the find-and-develop-yourself ideology have more chance of putting down roots and living a life of integrity...Let's try to be decent human beings instead of chasing a narcissistic dream of uniqueness and individuality."  

    Would you consider one refining their
    individuality a form of narcissism?
