Catalyst Weekly Rewind (Dec 15) – preparing for improvement


Was last week so awesome you want to live it again? Or maybe you’d prefer a do-over.

Let’s rewind.

Start this week off right by taking a moment to review the best of last week. This is a quick listing of what I published, the articles I curated, and then some insights about where I’m focusing energy.

I always welcome the opportunity to connect over good conversation.

Have a great week. Go own it!

Quote of the week

The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers. ― Ralph Nader

Created: published last week

The theme of the articles shared last week seems focused on preparing to improve. Fitting, as I work through the final stages of focusing and explaining what I do. As such, it was a heavy week of production (and a lot for clients), but awkwardly a bit light in terms of work actually published. The changes should start sometime in the new year…  and more on tap for this week.

Curated: The articles shared via social media

I generally share 3-5 articles a day across social media. Most are focused on the leadership challenges of prioritization, measurement, and communication of value. My interest is looking for ways to grow and improve.

Here is the list of what I curated and shared last week.
