Living Out-Loud

October 16, 2017

Transforming Leadership: The 3 Basics

August 21, 2017

I believe that the greatest truths of the universe don’t lie outside, in the study of the stars and the planets. They lie deep within us, in the magnificence of our heart, mind, and soul.

From Conflict to Collaborative Partnerships

January 30, 2017

Conflict seems to be the rule rather than the exception these days.

Why Meaningful Work Matters

November 3, 2015

A month ago I posted, Millennials, Feedback, and the Dreaded Performance Appraisal. My intent was to prove that it’s time for a change in how performance is managed. I planned for the second post in the series to move the reader from “why” it’s important and on to the “how” it can be accomplished. But in the last few weeks I realized there was an important element that had been left untold. To be an advocate for leading and coaching through the lens of what creates meaning in the workplace, and to convince the reader read more

Choosing to Live Intentionally

July 28, 2015

Everything about our lives is a choice, the question is, are we conscious or unconscious about the choices we make. We each can choose to flow through the day and let it happen or dig in deep and create a life that serves a greater purpose.  Maybe there is even a middle ground, a place that exists that is both flow and intention. read more

Of all the skills that managers use when coaching, there is none more important than the skill, Sparking Insight. Changing behavior and moving toward transformation requires that one must first gain a deep awareness of what is most important.
