Today’s Fast Action Fridays guest is Nyota Gordon, an adaptability coach and leadership strategist, who honed her skills during a 22 year service stint with the U.S. Army. She went in expecting to serve four years. Surprise!
While I’ve never served in the military, I resonated especially with the Aha! moment Nyota shared on the issue of delegating during our interview, and the debilitating weight when you haven’t any system for delegating in place.
There were so many great Aha! moments. About managing ourselves versus our time … about gifting ourselves the grace to grow … about misjudging our ability to multi-task … plus the biggest lesson she learned about herself and being an entrepreneur.

She created Transition365 to help high performers struggling to use their hard-earned skills embrace adaptability into their careers, businesses, and home lives.
