I am delighted to announce the launch of my new website!
Celebrating a successful year in business :-)
This month marks two (2) year since I began my coaching and HR consulting business…right at the beginning of the pandemic that has resulted in many restrictions on businesses. I am very proud to have survived this roller coaster ride the last couple of years.
What a Year its Been
Well, this February (2021) marks one year for AME Consulting. As I write this, I think back on the last year and count my many blessings that I have received. Let’s be clear, it was not all wonderful. I began the year with leaving my corporate position and quickly made the decision that after all these years of not having the time to do what I wanted, I would finally get around to starting my business.
Sometimes I need to create my own motivation, with a little help.
Most of the time I like to look at motivational quotes, especially on a Monday after the weekend. But sometimes I need to find the motivation within myself, like I did this morning, because I seriously did not want to get out of bed. The brutal windstorm and rain of yesterday, left me feeling a little depressed and bored.
This is why I decided to become a coach and help others
My coach journey began with some amazing coaches that showed me how to tap into my potential. They showed me how my values and strengths showed up everyday in all that I did and continue to do. I did not even know clearly what my strengths were. I know, I know you are probably thinking, how could she not know what her strengths are…but ask yourself “do I know actually know what my strengths are, especially my top 5 strengths”? If you do not, then I encourage you to find out, to really understand why you do what you do and how to better use them for success.
Keeping yourself busy while working from home can be challenging. If you try these things, it can make a difference
So, we have all been self isolating and working from home the past few months and are wondering how long this is supposed to last. Many of us have been working from home daily and it seems it may continue this way for a little while longer.
Being authentic means being honest.... among other things
In order to build effective relationships, more leaders need to be authentic in their dealing with others. Being authentic means being honest, open, self aware, transparent and ethical, in a way that others will value. I believe authentic leaders are mainly positive people who promote those qualities in themselves, and often promote in others through their transformational and ethical leadership.
