Make Commitments, Not Just Decisions

Make Commitments, Not just Decisions

Why are some people more successful than others with seemingly the same opportunities? Because they make commitments, not just decisions. In this blog post you will discover the difference. We make these decisions with the very best of intentions, and we actually take action on them. But, after a few weeks we let all kinds of other things get in the way and we abandon the achievement of everything we decided to do.
Decisions are nothing more than ideas in our heads unless we follow through on them. Commitment is the Energy that fuels our action.
The challenge this week is to take time out to clarify what you want to make a commitment to in your professional and personal life that will make a significant difference. Commitment requires time, energy and even a financial investment so your commitment needs to be important to you. Take action now to begin to change your life

Be a SuperConnector – The New Level Networking

Superconnector Networkers

This is a follow up to my post earlier about Your Network is Your Networth. This is to inspire you as to what is possible if you take that seriously and build your net-worth through networking.

I am attaching two articles on SuperConnectors. These are the people who have taken networking to a new level. Many people network with a sole purpose of serving themselves – getting business, status, ego development in knowing the right people, for example. Because we all know people like that, we are then hesitant to do what I have suggested you do in my previous blog post and reach out to those with whom you want to connect. We are frightened of being rejected because we don’t see ourselves in their league. This is what is different about the SuperConnectors, they bring a generosity to their networking. They are about helping others, sharing their net-worth with those they meet, interact and connect with.

Internal Networking

Because your network is your net-worth it is vitally important that your commit to spending time, energy and even money into building both your networks outside of your workplace – your external networks. What people often forget, however, is that building your networks and connections within your workplace – your internal networks – are equally important. These are the people who can help you grow your profile, platform and influence within your organisation which can see you advance your career there.

Introducing Mentoring at MareeHarris.Com.Au

Mentoring at MareeHarris.Com.Au

It was back in 2005 that I established People Empowered, my leadership development company. For the past 17 + years I have been conducting workshops, masterclasses, two day retreats and doing mentoring and coaching. Passionate about what I was doing, I saw myself continuing to do this for many years into the future.

I have already shared with you how COVID disrupted that idea, and the reflection I did that led me to my decision to specialise in MENTORING. It became so clear to me what a powerful process it is for developing leaders.

In the last few weeks, however, I have made another change that I wanted to share with you here, given it has been finalised just yesterday.

Mentoring Women for Career Development

Mentoring Women Blog

In mentoring women for career development, Maree focuses on six priorities women need to address for career success. They need to (1) have a career development plan, (2) develop their networks, (3) build a social media presence, (4) create a professional identity, (5) learn to self-promote, (6) integrate work and family. Most women will have mastered some of these; few will have mastered all. It is those they haven’t mastered that are probably blocking the career development they seek. Because mentoring is so personalised, it can focus on those individual challenges that each woman brings to the process.
