When Life Puts You Off Balance

Posted by vivhudson on March 22, 2015 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

As you go about your day, how grounded do you feel? If there are times when you meet with negative opinions you may feel a little 'off balance' when responding.

As with any destination we seek, we require a map or plan as to how to get us there. Simplistically speaking, we may want to travel to the next neighboring town. Whilst there are a few variables, you will already have a pretty good plan of how to get there.

Before we can begin to master change, we need to look into what the current benefits of not changing are. If you are stuck in a rut of running your business a certain way you may be avoiding a bigger issue that you see as too difficult to overcome.

The Challenge of Change - slowing down to speed up

Posted by vivhudson on February 28, 2015 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Change is rapidly becoming a constant in business today. Additional layers of compliance, technology, changing markets, staffing and profitability all require attention...
