Today is International Women’s Day and this month is Women’s History Month, a day/month dedicated to thanking and recognizing the contributions of women everywhere. All women, whether you’re a corporate exec, a stay at home mom, a grandmother, or just trying to figure out your place in the world, this day is for all of you and for those that have paved the way for us and will continue to trail blaze after us.
This topic is very near and dear to me as it is something that I struggle with to this day. As a mother of two wonderful daughters and wanting them to be happy. All parents feel this way. You want what’s best for your kids and you will do everything in your power to give it to them. But, as you’ve probably realized if you’ve been reading my blogs for a while, I am also a Type A control freak (by nature, working towards my Zen state of settling smarter). I want what’s best for my kids and I will make 100% sure that they are on the best path.
Growth is imperative for both people and companies. Companies want to grow and expand their business and people want to grow and progress in their careers. But how can you determine the best way to grow as a company and as an employee? Strategic Anchors. Strategic Anchors are how companies and employees can stay on track and not take on a bunch of superfluous bloat that may sound interesting but really does not help them grow. And when companies and individuals align on their Strategic Anchors, that’s when real growth rapidly happens.
