#ShowingUp with Anese Cavanaugh

How we’re here to help during this time: Resources, books, and virtual keynotes and engagements

This information was shared in our bi-weekly contagious leadership conversation broadcast (which is subscription-based). Given what we’re all going through right now, we wanted to provide this information on a bigger scale. Stay well. Stay present. Wash your hands. Breathe.

 

My team and I are devoted to helping things go better, showing up well with you, bending and flexing to be as useful as possible, staying well and working our IEP ourselves, and serving you in this time in new ways as needed.

Here's how...

What are you designing for?

You have a board meeting coming up that will require answers to hard questions, thoughtful delivery, an ask for support, and, if all goes well, will result in a stronger relationship with your board and a solid next step plan at the end of the meeting.

You have a training program you're about to launch that is costing your organization big resources in time, energy, money, and people. This training is the thing that will help your workforce get on the same page around culture, leadership, and the skills (and ways of being) required to do them well.

Navigate Conflict with Those You Love and Lead by Working These Three Things

I had what I call a “growth experience” with my daughter recently. (Some would call this an argument.) I’m learning the ever-changing dance of parenting a highly intelligent teenage girl (who I love more than air) who is also learning her own ever-changing dance of becoming as she learns how to navigate a mom who asks a lot (a lot!) of questions. Despite the fact that I write books and help people show up and collaborate better for a living, it never pains me more than when one of my kids and I are in our own “missed collaboration.” In the end of course it all worked out -- after some back and forth, mutual disagreement, and love and respect as the solid truth throughout, we had an agreement to create a new plan moving forward that we could both be “good” with. Yay.

#YouAsked: The power of the "pause"​ when struggling with deadlines...

I've recently been invited to contribute to a new LinkedIn feature called #YouAsked. Here is the question I was given today. My thinking around it follows.

“I struggle with deadlines, timelines, and timeliness (thanks, ADHD), which is an important part of my job. Does struggling with that mean I can’t ever do my job well?

How do I work to improve that while also showing that I am worth more than my biggest weakness?” — Melissa B., program manager at a Vancouver, Wash.-based nonprofit

Contagious You vs Contagious Culture: How They Differ

 

With Contagious You coming out tomorrow, we've had questions on what's the difference between this new book and Contagious Culture.

If you've already read Contagious Culture, Contagious You is a great next step. It will introduce you to new frameworks, help you strengthen your IEP and influence, build more of your field, lead in new ways, integrate this content with your team and relationships, work better with "George," and even invite “Georgette” to shift (if s/he wishes and if you're an "invitation"). If you ARE George (and hey, we all have our "George/Georgette moments"!), this book will help you explore why, what, and how you might shift if you want to have a different impact and/or feel better doing so.
