for Leaders from Doug Thorpe
Thank you for visiting my site. This blog is being written to coach and help managers and leaders in all types of enterprise; business, non-profit, government, military, and religion.
From all of my years on the front line, I know one big thing. The pressures of becoming a productive leader can take a toll on family and faith. Without finding the right balance between all three areas (work, life, and faith), usually, none of the three offer true satisfaction. Some call this work-life balance. I suggest all three areas are important and should work together.
This blog will take a good look at ways to bring balance back into your life. Here you will find actual business case studies as well as some occasionally funny stories about friends, colleagues, or folks I’ve gotten to know over the years.
MANAGERS WANTING TO BE BETTER LEADERS
There is a distinct difference between management and leadership; countless books have been written on the topic. My special passion is to help managers and owners at all levels become better leaders at work, at home, and in their community.
Anyone thrust into a management position for the first time quickly realizes several things:
- You don’t know what you don’t know
- It’s awkward to confess to upper management that you might need some help
- Your peers don’t treat you the same
- You want some help figuring things out, but you don’t know where to turn
Well, here is the place! I specialize in providing coaching and mentoring to managers at all levels who want to simply do more with their leadership capacity.
I am offering this blog site in conjunction with my own business, The Doug Thorpe Group, that offers executive coaching, business advisory consulting and project management services.
