Happy Hour

Happy hour - my own style.  No bars.  No smoking.  No loud talking or superficial conversations.  Just the scent of the ocean, a salt-infused breeze and an awesome view.  This is the best happy hour ever.


Happy Hour

This kind of happy hour is more about enjoying a tranquil lifestyle than anything else.  It's a celebration of hard work and weekly accomplishments.  This is a time to reflect on lessons learned.  I am cognizant about the impact I had on my organization and my employees.  Was I individually considerate?  Did I practice creative leadership?  Were my decisions authentic and purposeful?

These are important questions to ask ourselves at the end of a long week.  We enhance our leadership capacity through reflection and happy hour on the beach makes reflecting on one's week a pretty enjoyable experience.

    1. I can hear the ocean right now from my living room sliding glass doors. It's an extra reminder that coastal living is really awesome:)

    1. I agree. I wish that Florida would ban smoking in bars and fake people and craziness:)

  6. If I lived closer to the beach I would totally join you. I love sitting on my patio, though, listening to the owl hooting and the cicadas chirping!

    1. I would love that! As much as I love the beach, I think that I love the woods just as much. I can never decide:)
