An Unusual Year

If you enjoy my writing and want to improve your leadership, you may be interested in my newest book, “An Unusual Year; Leadership in Crisis.”

By all accounts, 2020 was an unusual year. A deadly global pandemic, tragic natural disasters, and political upheaval occupy just the top tier of tumult. Nonetheless, some were able to thrive, mostly through innovation, tenaciousness, and of course, leadership.

This collection’s selected essays are from the Karl Bimshas Consulting newsletter, blog, and the Reflections on Leadership podcast. Each entry is dated, and you will likely sense how the changing tone tracks with events of the year. It may be fun to make a note of predictions and recommendations, some of which, in retrospect, seem quaint, and others remain bold.

Some people may choose not to revisit anything associated with 2020; it was that painful for many. For others, this collection may aid you in your reflection of the leadership you may or may not have demonstrated during those twelve historical months. Hopefully, a passage or two will spark a new idea or perspective to help you manage better and lead well.

500 Journals

We've got a goal of getting 500 copies of this fantastic tool into the hands of Health and Wellness professionals this month. The Disposable Journal is a booklet-sized journal with a week’s worth of daily prompts, designed for you to take on your biggest challenges. This unique journal is for busy professionals who want to regain control of their emotions. I’ve been using this system on and off as life’s dramas have unfolded since 2008, and, to be honest; it seldom takes a full week to get me back on track.

How Good You Do Communicate?

Sometimes what you mean to say doesn't come out right. Miscommunication is often a big problem with teams, and in the last several months, with less face-to-face interactions, the odds of failure have risen. This is a great time to refresh your self-awareness with a combined DISC and Motivators Assessment. Ordinarily, Karl Bimshas Consulting offers the two reports for $110. However, you can receive this combination report for only $87. Contact us for additional saving for your team.
