"When I was flying in the middle of combat and needed to engage the enemy, we had to ask for permission to shoot our weapons. The magical phrase we needed to hear in order to protect the Marines and Soldiers on the ground was 'Cleared Hot.' As you're reading this, I'd bet it's safe to say you're probably on a different type of battlefield. Maybe for you it's combat as a senior or emerging leader in corporate America, as a teacher in today's classroom, or as an administrative professional in a large organization. Whatever your situation, you probably have challenges that you would like to effectively destroy!

Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF):

You HAVE permission to engage! Notice I didn't put the emphasis on permission, but on HAVE. You've ALWAYS had permission to engage whether it is employee engagement, customer engagement, career engagement or relationship engagement in your personal life. You make the decision how and when you engage. It is such a simple statement, but one that is overlooked by many. You wouldn't believe how many times someone has told me they lost their dream, are too busy taking care of everyone else and don't know HOW to take care of themselves anymore, or even worse, they felt guilty taking care of themselves! Why do so many of our team members need permission from outside of themselves when the bottom line is they HAVE permission to engage. They've ALWAYS had permission to engage, they just needed to give it to themselves! I'm standing by to help your team or organization take the next step and execute…CLEARED HOT!"
