Published on September 9, 2022 Written by

Time to think.   Henry Ford said, “thinking is the hardest work you’ll ever do, that’s why so few people do it.”   For years, I worked hard to justify time spent doing little to nothing. It felt like a waste. After all, I’m a productive, doer. How could I spend time doing nothing if I hadn’t… View Article

“If you’re your own worst enemy, you don’t need any others.” Dan Sullivan  When I consider the days I’ve ruminated on what I’ve done wrong, how I am wrong, what I could’ve or should’ve done, it’s a vast amount of time.

Structure frees creativity and structure creates freedom.  I’d like to say I’m smarter than my dog, but some days I wonder. When we moved four years ago, our bulldog, Spanky was lost.

Questions are a leader’s most powerful tool.  When you lead well, you learn to ask more than tell. There’s a distinction between teaching and leading. For the team, they can become blurred when the leader blurs those lines.  Teaching means showing, telling, correcting, learning, and generating. Leading is involved, but the outcome is clear: transition… View Article

Better Together #924

It’s amazing to witness someone emerging into their greatness….and it’s even better when they are related to you.  Seeing people embrace beautiful, powerful aspects of themselves that shine through your eyes, previously invisible through their eyes is a gift.  As I watch the metamorphosis of my adult children, I’m appreciative of who they are. Perfectly… View Article

I was learning with Dr. David Cooperrider, the man credited with creating Appreciative Inquiry. It was a rich experience drenched in goodness. I mean, when it’s called appreciative inquiry, what else would it be?  Consider flipping your script, asking only forwarding questions, redirecting your language to be positive, appreciative, generative, and abundant.  It’s not about… View Article

We can take so much for granted, at least I can.   I was with a group recently and two questions were posed from the authors of the book The Business of Race (Gina Greenlee and Margaret H.
