You as a Global Leader
" Be the change you want to see in the world."
~ Gandhi
We spend many of our waking moments (and some of our sleeping ones) in conversation.

What if we could shift those conversations from being somewhat automatic to being empowering and thoughtful ones?

What if, by adjusting our language, we could create the results that our hearts long for -- at work, at home, and in the community?

This month, Karen Wilhelm Buckley, shows us exactly how to perform that magic trick. She spent 30+ minutes with us in an interview. It is well worth your time to listen to her wisdom. Interview HERE

If you do not have that much time, read her article and her case study -- they are sure to stimulate your thinking.

Our Conversations Create Our Results

By Karen Wilhelm Buckley

Most of us struggle with habitual thinking and speaking patterns. We talk to ourselves in ways that hold us back from taking on unfamiliar challenges or stepping into new opportunities. A common habitual pattern is to lead with what is wrong or complain without taking action. When these conversation patterns repeat day after day, they limit our ability to accomplish what really matters. You can change your conversations to create a breakthrough in personal and team performance.

A case study

By Transforming His Conversations, He Changed His Results

By Karen Wilhelm Buckley

The Operations Manager in a small but fast-moving firm of 120 employees, struggled professionally with a certain gloomy resignation. He had a good job and great family but a morose attitude at work that dragged everybody down. You could hear it in his conversations.

His “something is wrong again” comments gave him the nickname of Eeyore, from Winnie the Pooh. A.A. Milne created Eeyore the donkey with classic lines like, “If it’s a good morning, which I doubt.” “I’d say it’s thistles, but nobody listens to me, anyway.”

Read more HERE about how he changed his conversations and, therefore his results.
