Losing Track of Time #26 Meditation is one of the practices most documented as imperative to becoming a great leader, so why do so many high producing, goal-oriented people struggle with it? It feels NON-productive, that’s why. Wellness expert Dan Miller was working with one of my groups and defined meditation by saying, “you are meditating […]

On BEing Human #25 Who are you? Minus what you do, what you produce, minus your title; who are you? It’s a big question; can you be still enough to answer it? Will you remain quiet, uncomfortable, and open to all that floods into your brain like a freight train out of control to sit […]

#24 – Avoiding a Destination you Weren’t Intending  When working with clients on setting goals and accomplishing them by chunking them down to manageable 90-day increments, I use stories and metaphors to make the point.  I often ask teams: “what portion of a plane trip is the plane “off track?” Guesses from leaders range in […]

#23 – Simple, Not Easy

#23 Simple, Not Easy  Discipline. It’s not a popular subject. It often gets confused with punishment. It’s not at all the same.  In my mind, discipline is closest to commitment.

#22- The Things You’re Not Saying Frequently in my work with leaders and their leadership teams, I facilitate dialogues they are waiting to have. They may not always know it, but they are.

#20 Inspiration is Full Circle  It’s an amazing thing to realize you’ve made a difference when you were unaware. In fact, it’s one of the best experiences I can think of.

#19 – 20 Pounds in a 10 Pound Bag We’re busy people. We are goal setters and problem solvers and doers. These are my people. They run businesses and lead people. Sitting still is not something they do well unless truly fatigued. So how do we truly become content amidst all we’re accomplishing? My theory […]

#18 Traveling in a Group  It’s interesting to travel in groups. You laugh, learn and morph with the ebb and flow of people as you move from event to event – especially during a retreat.   You can learn a lot about yourself and others in the nooks and crannies of your experience, both directly and […]
