Leadership In These Times
Given the divisiveness that has gripped the country recently, what steps do you take to make a difference in other people's lives?

Watching the news may be disheartening, but all the negativity we see can be offset by the little things we can all do for each other through the course of our actions. We can make an impression on others and influence others by understanding who it is they are and what it is they might need. No one can benefit from a divided world. That belief ties into the Monthly Check-In on Emotional Intelligence.

Keeping that lesson of impacting the lives of others in mind, this month's episode of the  Coach It Out With Everyday Leaders podcast features April Capone. April is currently the Manager of the Center for Living Organ Donors in the Transplantation Center at Yale New Haven Hospital. Her career has taken her from Music and Sound Engineering in college to Cirque de Soleil to being Mayor of East Haven, Connecticut to her latest position. Check out her story to gain insight to the leadership lessons she's gained along the way.

" If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: 'Hard work results in success.' While that conventional wisdom is endlessly repeated, it's also dead wrong. Hard work--meaning long hours pursuing a single goal--is a recipe for failure ."

So, what is your take on hard work? Only you can determine, knowing what needs to be done, if the work is being executed in the best way possible.
