|Focusing your vision, achieving results|
-- Peter Farquharson
by Bill George
Leaders who are open with people, even when sharing bad news or offering critical feedback, establish that sense of connection that builds commitment. Trust is built and sustained in the depths of these relationships, and commitment is strengthened so that any obstacle can be overcome. When pressures mount, relationships built on connectedness actually grow (George, 2003, p. 40-41)."

The kids are back in school, the white pants and shoes are packed away, it's time to focus on that project that is calling your attention most loudly. Complete September feeling really good about being on top of your game by finishing at least one project with us on the 22nd. Want some fun and companionship while you work? Join us in Pounce on a Project on Thursday, September 22nd, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern. We will join as a group by phone and declare what you want to accomplish: putting together a new marketing piece, finishing that client project, backing up your computer before you buy a new one, making those cold calls, organizing your office, simplifying your filing system, or putting the summer clothes away.
During the morning, the group will gather by phone a few times to check progress and get any support needed to finish with a bang. At noon, the group will celebrate their accomplishments. Who says projects have to be boring and tedious? Bring your lightness and fun and join us for the energization.
To sign up or learn more, call or e-mail Andrea by noon on September 21st. Feel free to share this with friends and co-workers, the more the merrier. (Cost of the program is only the cost of long distance phone calls.)
