Not Everyone Is a Game-Changer, but We Can All Make a Game-Changing Impact
We Change the Game, One Step at a Time
We're in the process of creating the 'new' - not the 'new normal', just the 'new'.
How we create this 'new' is going to affect how we live our lives for the foreseeable future.
I'm privileged to be working with super-leaders and awesome teams who get together, all hands on deck, to re-create their future as individuals, as a team and as an organization!
The displays of creativity, flexibility, empathy, collaboration have been fantastic! We're re-discovering and re-building these skills muscles, to get stronger, better, and make the best impact we can make, together!
Introverts or extroverts, humanists or realists, we can ALL make a game-changing impact! And this is crucial for the times we live in, when the game is changing as we speak!
So, here are some questions to help you reflect on the impact you're having in your team and organization:
when did you feel you made the best impact on your team or in your role? what did you do? how did you feel?
is it easy for you to come up with new ideas and imagine possibilities for transforming the future? (game-changers)
are you energized by making plans, prioritizing, setting clear directions and connecting the dots? (strategists)
do you find motivation from getting things done and implementing projects from start to finish? (implementers)
are you excited to take an idea and develop it further to create a future you're proud of? (polishers)
is it easy for you to spot talent, engage it in projects and help teams work together well? (play-makers)
is everyone on your team able to make the best contribution they can make? are they in the right roles or do they have the right responsibilities so they feel engaged and included?
Now, more than ever, leadership is no longer about the leader who's lonely at the top. It's about who takes the 'helm' depending on what needs to be done.
We need teams that change the game together.
One step at a time.
Change the game, YOUR way!
People Leaders - Interview Series
Leaders and Their Business Impact
As The Game-Changing Index partner in Canada, I am thrilled to make an All Personalcontribution and talk to Canadian leaders across industries about how they make their best impact in their organizations!
The GC People Leader interview series is designed to share the experience and stories from individuals who have a track record of leading and inspiring others to do great things.
We analyzed her GC Index profile, how her career development has been driven by her natural proclivities and how she makes her best impact!
'I found the assessment incredibly accurate.
I am a creative problem solver, at my core, always on the lookout for new ideas to implement or better ways of doing things.
Therefore, I am not surprised that the Game Changer proclivity weighs as much as the Implementer and Polisher in my profile and I am not surprised to see a Play Maker proclivity as well.'
Thank you, Valeria, for being part of this project and inspiring teams and organizations at a time when they need it most!

The current crisis has enabled most of us across the globe to change the way we work and learn. We work remotely and carry out the businesses to ensure the economies run as smoothly as possible.
Companies also face the challenge of up-skilling their employees as we all sail through this situation.
For those of you on the look-out for great e-learning platforms, here is one I can recommend: Vowel LMS.
As an industry leader, Vowel is a flexible learning management tool that allows you the freedom to manage every form of learning within your organization – be it online, or in the classroom, or virtual.
Easy assigning of courses, tracking learner progress, and viewing customized reports make the platform easy to use.
Chart every user’s learning journey based on individual learning curves and much more!
Email me if you would like me to connect you with someone at Vowel, or you can contact them directly.
In this video interview, I talk to Diana Medrea-Mogensen, Growth Mindset and Life Management Coach, Founder of 'We Are Entrepreneurs DK'.
She lives in Denmark, one of the first countries to lock down and then unlock.
Diana shares her experience, emotions and thoughts on getting down to work as things started to re-open, getting out of the house and sending her kids back to kindergarten.
Please share your comments either directly on YouTube or by emailing me.
Virtual Work Visionaries
I've also made ‘HomeWork Unlocked’ an All PersonalPodcast Limited Series, where we discuss work after being 'unlocked'.
They were already working virtually before the crisis, and were already managing things like keeping the team productive, motivated, engaged and in constant communication.
A confession: we've worked together on forming and norming their team as they were growing, and it’s a privilege for me to have clients like them: leaders who know that building a great team starts with building yourself as a great leader!
I am not subjective when I call them visionaries. Listen in and see why:
‘We’re going to see more flexibility in the long run after this is finished.’
‘You might not get the traditional 9-5 that you want, but you have to ask yourself, is the work still getting done? And if it is, you can’t complain.’
