I️ am sharing my story of an amazing journey I️ had the privilege to embark upon in 2013.  From a long list of extremely qualified consultants, I️ was one of the lucky ones who was selected to join an amazing and talented consulting team, serving those who feed our country and veterinary teams who care for our animals and family members.  It was an incredible opportunity to work with an organization of leaders who are truly passionate about serving the animal health and agricultural community.  I was humbled to serve this industry by providing support through leadership and team development.  My tenure with Zoetis PeopleFirst was an incredible experience, one I️ will forever cherish.  In spite of  PeopleFirst being sunsetted by Zoetis, I️ feel fortunate to be able to continue to build upon the amazing groundwork they’ve laid.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve you Zoetis and your valued customers – I️ will keep them in the best of hands and look forward to building upon your legacy of service.

From Bad to Badass Leader

12 Leadership Lessons

Author & CEO Michelle D. Reines

Michelle is a speaker, author, entrepreneur, CEO, and an ever-evolving badass leader. Her book, From Bad to Badass Leader, is about her journey and lessons learned while progressing from being an ass as a boss, in pursuit of becoming a badass leader.  How she defines “Badass” is, being intentional about who she wants and needs to be as a leader.  Early, in her leadership journey, she was oblivious to the impact she had on people!  She didn’t understand the art of leading people and building badass teams; the people-part can be the most challenging for many leaders; it certainly was for her.  She’s excited to share her lessons learned, in hopes of provoking you to awaken the badass leader within; learn how to transform yourself, your team, and your organization.

Michelle is a Strategic Interventionist, certified by the man of transformation himself, Tony Robbins; and his partner Cloe Madanes. Prior launching MDR in 2012, she enjoyed a 30+ year corporate career working with, turning-around, coaching, stretching and developing a variety of high-performance, badass cohesive teams.  Today, not only is she an author and creator of the Badass Leader brand, she is the founder of MDR Coaching & Consulting, Inc., a leadership development company. Michelle is manically committed to continuous improvement, and to, quite frankly, be badass…as a woman, a leader, and an entrepreneur!

3 Benefits of Hiring your own Executive Coach

Hire an Executive Coach

As an executive, your employees look to you to help them level-up their workplace game. You help them navigate through various situations, role-play, develop, coach and support them in growing their careers.  So, who do you turn to when you need to work on a few mechanics, sharpen your leadership game, gain some effective feedback – have someone challenge your thinking, or just have a someone to confide in? Most top performing professional athletes have coaches; successful leaders need coaches too!  There are numerous benefits to hiring an executive coach, here are three benefits I hear most often from clients:

#1 – “I am NOT alone!”

Your coach is your sounding-board, someone to confide in – outside of friends and family, plus they are someone who is external to your organization.  Lots of clients have shared how lonely it can feel at the executive level, and how beneficial it is for them to be able to share their fears, struggles and/or ambitions with their coach with the utmost confidence.  Many executives choose to hold-in what keeps them up at night, for fear of burdening loved ones or worrying peers – a coach is a safe place to decompress and share your challenges and aspirations – you are not alone.

#2 – “I have a renewed fire, focus, and flow!”

Few of my clients have been in their current roles or companies for several years, many of them know every operational in and out there is – when they wanted to reignite their passion for their role – they looked to hire an executive coach.  I have had the privilege of coaching many leaders over the years and they shared, how our relationship supported them in reigniting and maintaining their fire, focus, and flow.  In the midst of today’s fast-paced, stressful business climates, our partnership served to create a healthy anchor for them – supporting a healthy mindset, igniting their motivation and refocusing their priorities, leading to improved organizational well-being and performance.

#3 – “I create a more powerful impact as a leader!”

I enjoy bearing witness to this benefit frequently, in fact, the purpose that drives my organization forward is rooted in supporting my clients in creating this for themselves, their teams and organizations; it is incredibly rewarding to support clients in creating a positive impact for their people, teams, and companies.  Let’s face it, when leadership improves, the trickle-down is a very rewarding and powerful multiplier!  It can’t go without saying, the opposite is unfortunately also true – that is why I always encourage starting our work at the executive level – with our very own leadership mirror, building our impact “internally” first.

There are many benefits to hiring an executive coach – we look forward to supporting you in discovering and achieving your own benefits. MDR Coaching & Consulting, Inc. is here to help – contact us today to schedule your free consultation at 1-800-351-3129.

Leadership Development Resolutions: Build Your Own Rocket

Making new plans Stan? No need to be coy Roy…are great lyrics! But really, what’s your leadership development plan to take it to the next level in 2019?

Historically, I have always cultivated my “personal best” when I have a leadership development plan; what does that mean?  I am a passionate believer in Steven Covey’s Habit of Sharpening the Saw.  I have found I achieve more when I have crafted my leadership development road-map for success, specifically focused on maximizing my leadership strengths. Let’s face it, your team needs you to be the best possible version of you, especially if you are hoping to bring out the best in them.  There are many things to think about when creating your leadership development plan, it requires an honest assessment of your current leadership performance, as well as a thorough understanding of your team – who do you need to be as a leader to bring out the best in them?

Being a great leader starts by taking an honest look at yourself in the mirror, plus asking colleagues and team members for productive input, whereby gaining a better understanding of your current leadership reality. Spend some time reflecting on the last year and consider your successes, as well as any short-falls. What worked? What didn’t and why? Any lessons learned you want to carry forward? After reflecting, here are a few thought-provoking questions to get you started on defining your LDP (Leadership Development Plan):

  • What does success look like, and feel like, for you and your team by the end of 2019?
  • Are you the leader you need to be to take yourself, your team, and organization to the next level?
  • If you could only choose one area of development to focus on – what would be most impactful for you, your team, and your organization? What if you could choose two areas of focus?

  • What do you want to be most proud of?

  • What do you want to do more of or less of?
  • Are you taking care of yourself?
  • What does support look like for you; and how about for your team?

I love this take-away, from reading the book by Astronaut Chris Hadfield, what really matters is not the value someone else assigns to a goal or task, but how you personally feel while accomplishing it!

With your thoughtful, realistic, personal leadership development goal defined, it’s time to craft your road map for success.
