Giving an “A”….

In one of my favorite leadership books, "The Art of Possibility" is the concept of "giving an A".    This practice transforms our unconscious habit of judging and assessing people and/or situations  to consciously choosing an interpretation of outstanding performance.   Of course, when we are judging we typically are assessing that the person/situation is "not enough" [...]

Couple in Love Remember when you adored... what was that like? That warm fuzzy feeling in your heart, lightness in your step and general feeling of joy and satisfaction. Wouldn't it be great if we could create that feeling.  Bring it forth whenever we needed to. What stops us?

What’s your “why”?

About a year ago, I discovered a great book.. "Start with Why" by Simon Sinek.  In his book, Simon says (no joke) that most of us are very clear about what and how we do what we do, but what's missing is "why we do what we do".  Without knowing the "why" - we often [...]

New Year’s Resolutions…how are you doing?

What would you wish for?

The other evening in my leadership class, a student shared in their final presentation the following quote: " I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible.

Leadership …. developing the “art” and skill

What are you holding on to?

Sometimes and particularly when it involves another person, we want something so badly that we can't see another possibility that is right there in front of us.  All we have to do is "let go" of how we think it should look.  Sounds simple, yet we get so focused on our view that we find [...]

January 31, 2010

Amazing ... we're already into the second month of the year.  So how are you doing with your 2010 resolutions?  And the real question is who are you being about your resolution?  A foundation of the work that I do focuses on "who are you being"  - which constitutes the amalgamation of your thoughts, body [...]
