The GLUE of Leadership Development
Amy Kelly pt 1
Have you ever had a workplace disagreement in your career? It may not have even been that bad of a disagreement. But over time, it continued to eat away until, ultimately, it DID affect your life, your workplace, your family, etc.?
Have you ever said something that you regretted saying?
Have you ever done something that had the opposite effect you intended and you wished you could go back and do over in a different way?
Making decisions in business and in relationships is normal. How you communicate and how you handle decisions can result in either success or failure. Each decision you make can either strengthen the bonds of the relationships you have – or tear them apart.
Sometimes, when you handle things the wrong way and the relationship is torn apart, you wish there was some type of glue to bring it all back together, right?
Well, my guest today just happens to have that glue available for you to use…

First question, other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Amy Kelly?”
Why did you write “GLUE” and why do you believe it is so needful right now?
You say your book, “GLUE,” provides a framework to build relationships and trust – even in the midst of conflict. How do you go about doing that?
I can say, the story line you provide is riveting. I mean, I can relate to the premise of starting and running a business with a close friend, only to have that friend decide to branch off and do their own thing with the ideas you mutually developed. That happened to me about 25 years ago. And that relationship did not end well and still, to this day, really has not healed.
Give us the quick synopsis of the story plot between Linda and Cindy…
How did Linda’s Faith help her to come to the point where she could accept Cindy’s decision to leave the business and start her own?
How does this fit into the discussion of minimizing disagreements and negative emotional energy that you describe?
How did the COVID pandemic, shutdowns and all of that effect what you are trying to share in this book?
