One of the key barriers I find many people leading a business or team face is that they don’t allocate time to leadership. They tend to look at leading others as an “or” instead of an “and”. When you have a team you have a responsibility, leadership is a choice and a decision not a title that automatically makes you capable and effective.

Just like building a house, if we build a strong foundation, the house, like any relationship, has a stronger chance of lasting the test of time.

If you want to be leading and assisting in increasing EI, you need to lead by example.

Personal branding captures the essence of the real you and what you offer and how you solve people’s problems. It is what sums you up, what people see, feel and hear when your name/business comes up!
