Today was huge! Just a few months shy of my company’s 5th birthday, I launched The Nightingale Firm Leadership Training Academy. There’s a natural high that comes from speaking and coaching.

In the face of failure, there is no hierarchy. Just like pilots can't blame passengers for a crash. Leaders can't blame employees for failures within the organization.
My last few weeks have had me quite busy. Recruiting DNP students, traveling for speaking engagements, developing international partnerships, coaching and so much more! It's so easy to get consumed with all of our responsibilities and lose sight of our daily influence.
Last week is done and gone. Today, we have an opportunity to start afresh. What is your intent for this week? Mine is being mindful of emotional carnage. Check out my latest 90 second vlog here:
