Are You Boring or Fascinating?

Do you feel boring? Or fascinating? I promise that no matter how run-of-the-mill you may feel most days, you possess a leadership quality that others find fascinating. I see this unfold every day in my executive coaching practice. Every leader has a unique asset, an inner strength that defines their executive presence.

What I find fascinating is that most leaders arrive at my coaching session oblivious to their unique asset. They don't see themselves as others do. I find great joy in helping leaders identify what's influential about them – and then help them amplify it.

If you identify and amplify your unique assets, you will become far more influential. More powerful. More authentically and satisfyingly you.

I recently taped an interview with Sally Hogshead, the author of "Fascinate," to help uncover seven qualities that she believes fascinates others. If, by chance, you're snickering over Sally's last name, she has a heartfelt, unique retort for you at the end of this video. As you'll see, it's part of what makes Sally so darned fascinating herself.

I hope you enjoy this quick video to learn which fascinating qualities YOU possess:
