How to Be a Good Neighbor - Leadership SHIFT Tip

They say good fences make good neighbors. 

But if you follow the advice of Fred Rogers, he would share that it takes compassion, empathy, and conversation even when neighbors see the world differently. 

Over the weekend, I watched the documentary, Won't You Be My Neighbor, about Mr. Roger's life and show that featured my childhood neighbors like Lady Aberlin, Officer Clemons, Daniel, and King Friday. 

I laughed. I cried and was amazed by his courage and compassion. He had an incredible ability to connect with us kids on sensitive topics from war to self-worth. Simply put, he loved us.  

And he saw us. Which is the first step to become a great neighbor and it's also how to become a great leader, partner, parent, and friend, as well.  

Have fun storming the castle!

p.s., I'm opening enrollment in The Pace Line Academy tomorrow. It will be the last time for 2018.  

Since it launched, many have asked, "Who is it for?"

If you are okay with your career and life, it's not for you.

But, if you want to discover your possibilities beyond good enough, then it's for you. 

And I guarantee that it will make you more than just a good neighbor. If you have questions, please call 201-697-6820 or write to
