Fourth of July in “Children’s Church”

Here are a few free resources to help you plan children’s church for Independence Day week-end. Have a great 4th of July holiday. Children’s Sermons

via Kidmin Independence Day Lessons — Revival Fire For Kids

Usually this blog carries something for managers of all kinds — whether in a school or in a business. But today, I’d like to do something more in the way of curricula for the church affiliated preschools that have traditionally made up the bulk of my clients. I hope they don’t feel neglected. Sometimes, when one is immersed in the world of the school, the world of the manager is easy to forget — and vice verse.

So, here is something from Becky Fischer’s team, giving some ideas for the 4th — or maybe “Independence Day” if you are from Canada. And changed visuals and other tweaks.

Everybody — go have fun with some kids. It is summer!

The Best Leaders Empower New Leaders; Non-Leaders Reward Yes-Men

In this episode of the Blanchard LeaderChat podcast, we interview Sydney Finkelstein, author of Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent. Drawing on some of the key points from his book, Finkelstein explores the different ways managers of all personality types bring out the best in people. He discusses the importance of seeing […]

This is a contribution that encourages us to bring out the best in others. We have all seen the controller who stomps out potential. We have all seen the leader who gathers a coterie of self-adulation. We have all seen wrong hires lead to eventual disaster. Few of us, however, have had enough good examples to be sure that we can always do or suggest the right thing at the right time. This book may fill in the gap. Hope it is helpful

English Spelling Patterns – Book Announcement

My latest book is out now, on Amazon.com and in Kindle format. I originally wrote it for my grandsons. They needed help with spelling. It never has been taught in a sensible, organized fashion in public school and they couldn’t intuit it like I could. I also realized that all Montessori teachers who teach in English speaking countries needed this resource. Go straight to Amazon.com and pick one up for yourself and a few for your favorite teachers.

Coaching for Directors Coaching their staff

Do the people you work with know what you expect of them? Do they know what to expect of you? Pause, please, and really consider those two questions. If I walked into your workplace and asked your team these questions, would I get immediate answers? Would I get consistent answers? Would I get answers you […]

Great topic. Moving goalposts is a frustrating experience for an employee. A team running in different directions is a frustrating experience for the boss. We can motivate and communicate and get the team all running to the same goal. Let’s chat. Sharon 512-249-7629

Measure Coaching to Ensure Success

Getting to a great outcome for coaching can be tricky. Clients—the recipients of coaching—can always tell you if they enjoyed the process. They can even tell you if they found coaching to be helpful. But it’s often more difficult to determine the actual value in business terms or in life outcomes. What happens on the […]

via Measuring Coaching from Four Perspectives — Blanchard LeaderChat

Like most things, what gets measured, gets done. But who gets to decide? On what basis is success measured? Is it pleasure? Changed behavior? Profit? These are important questions. The author points out that often they are never asked. When that is the case, no one really knows what was and was not successful.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas
