Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer And A Four-Year-Old: Lessons For Leadership & Life, Connie I. Reimers-Hild Dec 2011

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer And A Four-Year-Old: Lessons For Leadership & Life, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Last week while I was in the shower, my four-year-old daughter, Raquel, walked into the bathroom and asked me an interesting question. “Mom, why doesn’t anyone like Rudolph’s shiny red nose?” My daughter was supposed to be in bed sleeping. I am 99% sure she was lying in bed reflecting on her day.

Many nights I have quietly checked on her before going to bed myself only to find her talking to herself while she makes vivid hand gestures and motions. On this particular evening, her talk and gestures must have focused on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. After ...

Coaching Power Tool: Success Vs. Failure, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Part of personal leadership and innovation is self-discovery, which requires introspection and the ability to see the unseen. Sometimes it is necessary to consider a different perspective. We have to shift our thinking to see possibilities in a new light. Sometimes, it is the unobvious that may be the most important. It is important for us to challenge our thinking and traditional thought to redefine success, failure and our ability to take risks.


The "High 5" Elevator Pitch Worksheet, Connie I. Reimers-Hild Sep 2011

The "High 5" Elevator Pitch Worksheet, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Great elevator pitches are created to sell something in 30 seconds or less (the time it takes to go from the first floor to the top of the building in an elevator). Think broadly about how a great pitch can help you. Great pitches can be used to market or sell anything from yourself as an individual to your business or community. Great pitches are clear and compelling. They make memorable impressions of whatever you are pitching and create a foundation for building relationships, clients, sales and investments!


Personal Innovation Action Self-Coaching Tool: Success Vs. Failure, Connie I. Reimers-Hild Aug 2011

Personal Innovation Action Self-Coaching Tool: Success Vs. Failure, Connie I. Reimers-Hild

Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications

Part of personal leadership and innovation is self-discovery. One of the first steps in the process of personal innovation is discovering and defining success and failure.

Cultures and nations around the world define success differently, and it is important for individuals to define their own version of success to live their best lives.

In order to unleash your true potential, become very aware of how you define success. Is it your definition? Or, is it the definition society or others have imposed upon you?

Rarely do we examine success in terms of personal fulfillment, happiness or joy. Maybe your success ...

Coaching Power Tool: Wants vs. Musts

Identifying and Clarifying Wants and Musts

Our actions do not always reflect what we say we want. This power tool is designed to clarify what you want vs. what you must have and/or do. And I mean really, really must have and/or experience. The deep down, gut-wrenching things that you just can’t live without.

The trick here is to block out all those annoying little distractions and voices that get in the way. So again, when doing these Innovation Actions, I encourage you to find a quiet space and a block ...
