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.

Can You Set a New Course?

Posted by on Sep 9, 2014 | 2 Comments

Sometimes our biggest lessons come from the most uncomfortable situations.  One of the reasons having clarity about what I stand for has been helpful, is that it’s made it possible for me course-correct when I find myself reacting to situations instead of bringing my best.  As those of you fabulous human beings who read my blog regularly know, my Super […]

How Do You Handle the “Stuff”?

Posted by on Aug 21, 2014 | No Comments

Stuff happens.  When you’re working to accomplish big things and you’re coordinating a million moving parts to make it happen – as most companies are – you can expect that once in awhile things are going to fall through the cracks.  Where the rubber meets the road is not at the point of the mistake, but […]

Step Away From Your Weapon!

I find it so fascinating how, even though many of us speak the same language, we can interpret what is said in such a wide variety of ways – especially when the communication is in a written form, like an email or in a social media post. Yesterday my husband and I were having a […]

What’s Your Mess to Own?

Posted by on May 6, 2014 | 2 Comments

One of the things that makes life both magical and complicated is that there is no such thing as a perfect human being.  Try as we might (and some of us are trying mightily), we mess up from time to time.  We react in the moment.  We say and do stupid things. It’s not just […]

What Does Your Best Self Look Like?

When do you see your best self?  When you look in the mirror?  Can we actually see our best self, or is “being your best” just an aspirational thing?  Would you know it if you saw it?  I think we catch glimpses of our best self – like ghosts – leaving us wondering “Was that […]

Your Internal Warning System

Last Friday, as I was leaving one meeting and heading to the next, I ducked into Barnes and Noble for a quick respite (my feet were killing me as I had been a bit overly-ambitious with my city walking) when my husband called and asked me to run a quick errand for him.  It shouldn’t […]

Give Yourself a “Time-Out”

They say that what doesn’t kill  you makes you stronger, and while I feel very whimpy in my thinking this morning, I’m quite concerned that these snow days might just hasten my demise.  When I have to go and re-read my own blogs to remember how I want to approach the day (and it’s only […]

Getting Feedback Heard

Posted by on Oct 1, 2013 | 5 Comments

Feedback. How many of you, when someone says, “Can I give you some feedback?” think, “Yay!  Feedback!  Can’t wait!”  Most of us tend to translate that sentence in our heads to say, “Let me tell you how you screwed up.” And that doesn’t typically illicit feelings of joy and happiness. And now, with the advent […]
