Leaders never settle for the status quo, and they never accept defeat as final. Never giving up is the trademark of intelligent leaders destined for success. Giving up is never a reasonable option for a leader who sees the future as a source of endless possibilities and opportunities.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison.

Successful leaders never accept defeat as final. If one looks at leadership success through an analytic lens, never giving up emerges as a common theme. Never giving up may not be the only ingredient of leadership success, but it’s an essential part of the cocktail.

Leadership coaching urges leaders to leave their comfort zones and explore whatever lies beyond them. Your coach aims to turn this attitude into an

For Employees, What are the Potential Benefits of Quiet Quitting?

If quiet quitting is driven by disengagement, if it clearly isn’t a pleasant experience, then why are people doing it?

If you are in a situation where you find yourself disengaged from your work, or your work environment is negatively impacting your well-being (for example, if the culture isn’t inclusive or it is unsafe to speak your truth at work), quiet quitting can have benefits. 

I strongly urge you to explore other options first, however. Have a conversation with your boss or with HR. This isn’t just for the benefit of the organization, but for your benefit as well. You deserve to feel good about the work that you do, to feel proud of your contributions, to feel seen and respected. It’s normal and even healthy for work to challenge us at times, but it shouldn’t drain you.

The Thompson Denver opened its doors less than a year ago. But the property has already established itself as a premiere downtown destination for food and drink—in addition to luxury lodging. Anchoring all of that fine flavor is lobby restaurant Chez Maggy, a Parisian-inspired bistro conceived by celebrity chef Ludo Lefebvre. On top of that (literally) a sixth floor speakeasy called Reynard Social is delivering imbibers high-end cocktails in a spacious lounge backdropped by the Rocky Mountains. And for New Year’s they’re showcasing all of it with a progressive concept that’ll catapult guests from the Mile High City to the City of Light.

“Midnight In Paris” is a $1400 package inclusive of accommodations for two, a five-course tasting menu for two at Chez Maggy, and five hours of DJ-fueled frivolity at Reynard Social—with free champagne (and late

When you are a small business owner you need to be on top of everything. And we don’t mean that you only need to be on top of what is happening inside your company. You also need to pay attention to your competitors, to the overall market, and also to the new legislation that sometimes affects your small business. This is where the best business news this year, and really the best business news in decades comes into play.

There are a lot of things changing this year for small businesses. As a result of Covid 19 our legislators have given lots of relief to small business owners. Some of the biggest help has been PPP loans(which are 100% forgivable) and EIDL loans(which are at very low interest rates and amortized over 30 years. You are probably aware that recently congress passed new tax laws help businesses. There is another

As leaders, we all do things we later grow to regret. Leadership coaching aims to help leaders develop habits and behaviors that leave little room for regret. Here’s a look at some leadership behaviors leaders will never regret. The more of these behaviors you adopt, the more successful your leadership will be.

Leaders are human. As such, they make mistakes and do things they regret. Leadership is a convoluted tightrope act of influence and inspiration. It’s easy to go wrong and develop regrets.

The difference between resilient, mature leaders and leaders with immature, fragile egos lies in how they react to what happens to them and their organizations. Leadership coaching focuses on helping leaders adopt mindsets, attitudes, and behaviors that lead to fewer regrets. Those truly successful may even avoid regrets altogether.


Regrets stem from how we react to life. 

Some decisions,

How do you know you can’t trust someone?

My approach – and how I coach others – is to always assume that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole. To begin from a place of trust.

Many people believe that trust has to be earned. And I agree. So why would I say to start from trust? It’s because I believe that it’s the maintenance of trust that must be earned. I also believe that if we treat people with distrust right from the start, we give them no reason to be loyal, honest or trusting with us.

Trust always creates more trust. Start from trust and go from there.

So, if you’re starting from trust, how do you know if it’s being earned? How can you know that your trust isn’t being taken advantage of?

Firstly, there’s more trust. This time, it’s to trust your gut. Tune into your

With the benefit of hindsight, it’s easy to forget just how close Cristiano Ronaldo was to wearing the blue shirt of Manchester City.

In the summer of 2021, having missed out on his number one target Harry Kane manager Pep Guardiola was in dire need of an option upfront.

City scoured the market for an alternative solution and found limited options available.

Forwards of the level required by the Catalan and his team were either too expensive or difficult to land.


But, as the summer transfer window came to a close, a shocking possibility arose. Cristiano Ronaldo wanted out from Juventus and, despite his well-established

Working with an Employer of Record, or EOR can be an ideal solution when your business has a need for international operations or wants to start expanding into global markets. An EOR allows businesses to instantly gain access to foreign markets and experienced local workforces by partnering with an established local entity. Your business retains full control of local operations, but you are not obliged to go through the time-consuming bureaucratic process of establishing a new entity of your own in your target market.

The speed of set-up makes working with an EOR very tempting for any organisation looking for fast international expansion. EORs come with their own potential drawbacks, though, and these must be carefully weighed against the advantages. To help you make a well-informed decision regarding EORs, we’ve itemised some key positive and negative points to consider:
