I haven’t had a lot of experience with job transitions. However, the job transitions I’ve had, have exposed me to the challenges you will face when switching jobs.

Most recently, I switched companies and experienced the challenges once more. Today, we’re going to talk about what challenges you’ll face as you transition to a new organization and what you can do about them.
The Excitement Of A Job Transition
Let’s be honest, when you choose to transition from one organization to another, the transition is exciting. You get to move into a new organization and help them thrive. Your expertise will change the company you’re going to.
That is exciting. You have new opportunities. New challenges. New relationships. And, hopefully, better pay.
These items make a job transition fun and exciting. You’re getting to move out and expand your horizons. Read more...
Do you remember what it was like growing up? I do… And I miss those days.
Not only because of the freedom I felt when I was riding my bike with friends. Or rollerblading down streets by myself trying to go faster.

Those were great. But there’s something else I miss from my youthful days.
I miss the imagination I once had.

Let’s take a look at those leadership lessons in the latest Reel Leadership article.
Every external manifestation of success—whether it’s a business venture that is taking off, an ad campaign that’s gone viral, or a sports team that has gained the winning edge—comes about as a direct result of the environment that has been created by and between each of the players. What we call genius is really nothing more than having the faith and the willingness to hold true to our vision and to be meticulous in our attitude, even in the face of naysayers who invariably try to talk us “back to reality.” A visionary sees in his mind or feels with her gut what has not yet been created—and in so doing, creates it from the inside out. And when you think about it, this inside-out approach is really the only way we can effectively influence anyone. It is not our words, our demands, or even the contracts we enter into with one another that inspires people to bring the very best of themselves to any endeavor. The only way to truly lead is to lead by example, and through the power of our own confidence. Read more...
