Playing it Safe

If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original. — Ken Robinson This sounds good.  It sounds like the right answer.  And we know there’s truth in Sir Ken’s statement, and yet giving permission to ourselves and our employees to be possibly be wrong is incredibly difficult to do. It’s […]

My Way or the Highway

Posted by on Oct 31, 2013 | No Comments

We’ve all done it before – just charged ahead with our own agenda without paying attention to what’s going on with the other people in the space.  Not typically our shining moment. Of course what we want and need, in our minds, is paramount.  So paramount that others should want and need the same thing […]

Will You Be There?

Posted by on Oct 29, 2013 | No Comments

I have a friend and colleague who always asks to get together.  Great guy.  Fun.  Interesting.  It’s always enjoyable to see him.  We eagerly schedule something.  Without fail, he either cancels or has to reschedule.  He routinely schedules other things during the time we’ve planned to meet.  It could be that he’s just disorganized.  It […]

Getting to Real

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 | No Comments

I just had a terrific conversation with a friend of mine that was very energizing and inspiring, but not in the way I normally think of “energizing and inspiring”.  Most of the time when I feel that way, some big “ah ha” has taken place, or I’ve been buoyed by possibility or someone’s act of […]

What impact do YOU want to make?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2010 | 3 Comments

Wow. It’s amazing the impact that one person can have. It’s easy to forget how powerful we all are. Single-handedly, we can take an entire team down in flames, or inspire thousands worldwide to believe in themselves and make a positive difference in their world.  I’ve witnessed both ends of the spectrum. When I first […]

The Courage to Lead

Posted by on Aug 5, 2010 | 3 Comments

  I’ve lost track of the number of conversations I’ve had recently around the tough business environment we’re all facing. Companies are having to do more with less; small businesses are suffering; entrepreneurs are casting off dreams; government and education are cutting programs; non-profits have lost their funding; and the number of extraordinarily talented individuals […]

An “Intentional” New Year

Posted by on Dec 15, 2009 | No Comments

The media loves this time of year. From CNN, to People Magazine, we’re inundated with images of the year’s events – the bad stuff of course – because (they say), good stuff doesn’t make for compelling news.

Today, I invite you to refocus your lens a bit, away from Madoff and Tiger, and zoom-in closer to home. Consider what your year in pictures would reveal. As you flip through your mental calendar of 2009, what do you see? Who shared your days? How did you spend your time? What brought you joy? What images come to mind?

The “Magic If”

Posted by on Aug 24, 2009 | 5 Comments

I’m always amazed at how transferable my theatre degree has turned out to be. I never imagined that it would serve me as well as it has and give me tools that I use daily in my personal and business practices. One acting technique that has become the foundation for everything I do is the […]
