Do Your Actions Match Your Insides?

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 | 2 Comments

It was a day I’ll never forget.  During my morning “zen time” I had been reading Nathaniel Brandon”s, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (I think it was around 2003, when I was living in Seattle – definitely before my kiddo was born, as there hasn’t been much “zen” since).   Having just finished a chapter about the “Practice […]

Do You Make Them Read Your Mind?

We can’t assume people know what we’re thinking. When people do a good job, we need to tell them.

Adios, Mr. Ego!

As my son’s fourth grade year comes to a close, I sit bewildered at the passage of time.  Wasn’t it just yesterday that he was Davy Crockett?  I smile, thinking back… “To be honest, mom” said my then-third-grader, from the back seat of the car, “I’m not crazy about the book we’re reading aloud. It’s Davy […]

Put Your Weapon Down!

How a question is received, stems from our individual experiences. And once emotional triggers start going off, it becomes a full-scale emotional battlefield in which there are no winners.

How Focused is Your Feedback?

Posted by on May 4, 2015 | 2 Comments

In a world with so much stimulus and in our businesses that require we pay attention to so many different things, the ability to focus the attention for those we lead is critical. They cannot read our minds. They need to know what we want them to see in order to see it.

Are You Who They Think You Are?

Have you ever met someone who was totally different than you thought they’d be?  Maybe you’d known them in a past-life, like back in high school, many, many moons ago.  Maybe you’d known them in a different context, like you had worked together and now you’re seeing them socially for the first time.  Maybe you […]

Do You Trust Yourself?

She stood up there, poised and professional.  Her impressive background, the ivy league schools and a fancy title with a Fortune 500, seemed to go with the expensive pantsuit she was wearing – like Garanimals, everything matched (did I just date myself?).  Her presentation was articulate and well constructed – very controlled – with just […]

Do You Know What Makes You Shine?

Not long ago I led OnStage Leadership for a very special group of creatives.  Extraordinarily talented and insightful, the group reminded me about how powerful it is to name the unique gifts that we bring.  Over the course of the day they dug deep – excavating what it is that drives them internally.  What, when they […]

I don’t remember where I heard it.  I do remember it was eons ago – further back than I could attempt to pin down.  But somewhere along my journey, I remember someone once saying, “Who you are in one area of your life is who you are in every area of your life.”  It stuck […]

The Gateway to Your Best Self

As half of the nation continues to battle the elements, with more snow than we know what to do with, I’m reminded of my childhood.  As many of you know, I grew up on a cattle ranch in northwestern Montana.  My dad had grown-up in Texas and had always yearned to have land and a ranch, […]
