30 Day Challenge Update – Day 7


7 Days in and still going.  It was a little difficult being away camping and then at a cottage, but I managed to get my exercise in, do my reading, affirmations, healthy breakfasts and wake up without hitting snooze!

The toughest part, I think, is not hitting that snooze bar, but I’m glad when I’m up and exercising.  I love the reading part, because I have a stack of books I want to read and by taking 20 minutes each morning I’m making great progress.  Right now I’m reading Crucial Conversations.

Follow me on twitter for more frequent updates, and, even better, send me your updates – I want to know if you are taking the challenge too. @MikeBonnLMI

A Challenge!


I’ve read so many “Top 5 things…” articles (and heck, I’ve written a few too) that I tend to ignore them, but this was tweeted out by my brother today and I highly recommend you read it and then do it.  It’s simple, fundamental things that we can all do to get a little better every day.  Test yourself and see if you can do all 5, every day for one month, starting tomorrow.  See how you feel at the end.  I’m in and will Tweet my results each day.  If you’re with me, Tweet, Share, Comment, Like, whatever, just let me know and let’s have some fun!

UNGAGGED: EXECUTIVES ON EXECUTIVE COACHING – Ivey Business Journal


This article is a little bit dated, but it still holds true.  A good discussion on what benefits Executives, get from coaching. In my practice, anyone from the CEO to shop floor supervisors get measured ROI from LMI’s proven process.

Productivity Webinar #2 – Conducting Effective Meetings


According to a study done by Management Today magazine, the average corporate worker spends 16 hours per week in meetings and 4 of these are considered pure WASTE!  Add that up and it’s the equivalent of 25 working days a year.  Think your work performance might benefit from an extra month’s worth of productive time?  Yeah, me too.

Check out my latest webinar in which I give some simple and effective tips for running meetings that have clear objectives, take less time and get better results.
