From Seth’s Pen to My Ears #31

Published on April 1, 2019 Written by

From Seth’s pen to my Ears (#31) Below is Seth Godin’s blog post from today. If you’re playing along on this blogging journey with me, you may recall that I took Seth’s challenge of writing 1,000 blog posts just a month ago. So far, it’s been relatively do-able. I’m keeping up with my 5/week promise […]

They’re Not the Same #30

Published on March 29, 2019 Written by

They’re Not the Same #30 Information, knowledge and wisdom. They’re not the same. Often, people treat them as if they are the same.   Our world is filled with information; you can “Google” anything, watch a YouTube about how to do most things and learn without interacting with anyone or anything other than a screen. Many […]

Teamwork is not a Cliché #29

Published on March 28, 2019 Written by

Teamwork is not a Cliché #29 I work with teams, I celebrate teams, I watch teams and enjoy helping teams in my work. It’s entirely gratifying to work with talented people who contribute their unique skills and talents to a common goal generously.  It’s even more gratifying when that team is your family. When you work together in what seems to be […]

Well Intentioned Doesn’t Mean It’s Helpful #28

Published on March 27, 2019 Written by

Well Intentioned Doesn’t Mean It’s Helpful #28 I’m wrestling with something. It’s my own well intentioned yet non-helpful behaviors. While I like to think of myself as an open minded, open-hearted, helpful person, the reality may be that while my intentions are good, they’re not as thoughtful as they need to be for those I’m […]

Squishy Issues #27

Published on March 26, 2019 Written by

Squishy Issues? #27 Why tackle squishy issues like self-doubt? I was asked this question in an interview. First of all, I don’t think doubt is a squishy issue.  75-80% of successful people feel like imposters at times. It’s called Imposter syndrome and it’s a real thing. And if you are one of these people and […]

Losing Track of Time #26

Published on March 25, 2019 Written by

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

Published on March 22, 2019 Written by

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 […]

Avoiding a Destination You Weren’t Intending #24

Published on March 21, 2019 Written by

#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

Published on March 20, 2019 Written by

#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. The kind you make to do something even when it’s challenging; when it’s not convenient; when it’s unpopular; when you’d rather not.  It’s a rare thing to witness […]

#22 – The Things You’re Not Saying

Published on March 19, 2019 Written by

#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. The beauty of being an “outsider,” a consultant, someone paid to help them gracefully work through the tough stuff, is that you […]
