This will be a super short - and early - edition of the newsletter. Why? Because Covid finally caught up with me (3 weeks and counting), and October and November have been a whirlwind on the coaching and webinar hosting front.
Just popping in to remind you that there's still time for you to sign up for this month's exclusive webinar which is happening on this Friday (the day after tomorrow) at 12:30 pm Eastern.
Sign me up! I want to conduct performance reviews better
If a performance review meeting is on your horizon, please join us for our second 45 minute lunch and learn webinar full of tips and recommendations for conducting (and participating in) performance reviews with greater ease and increased confidence.
Bring your questions and your biggest challenges. And I'll be providing each attendee with an executive summary following our workshop.
We will be Zooming again, which means there will be opportunity to interact with one another - if you're so inclined, of course. Let's start connecting members of this network of amazing people! Please join us...

While I'm waiting for a 50% Black Friday discount on Calm (an app), I do believe you can nab it for 40% off right now. Why Calm?
Lots of us have challenges sleeping when there's a lot on the go. Or focusing our minds. Calm offers up readings to help us get to sleep (the free one is Stephen Fry) and stay asleep. There's a white noise option to help us focus along with wide variety of other soundscapes. Another part of Calm's offering is a multitude of guided meditations if you're so inclined (some super short options here to get you started if you're curious).
A similar app is Insight Timer which I've been using for years. There's a paid version, but I've stuck with the free (because I'm half Scottish and my father was an accountant) and it's been super helpful over the last few years - especially when it's time to put my head down for some concentrated work.
I head to the Timer section, select an Ambient sound (I personally love Lucid Dream and Limitless but there are rain showers and nature sounds as options for you as well) and add in a few bells. I've used it so often I'm like Pavlov's dog. As soon as I hear the music/sound I get right to work.
Check them out on the app store from your phone. And let me know what you think!
If you're new to people leadership, we can help - would you like to learn how coaching could support you as you grow your career in a bespoke one on one program?
