In the Company of Friends, the Key to Business Success

I attribute a great deal of my business success to the fact that I started my company in Dallas. In Dallas I have always been in the company of friends, where the lines between business and friendship are blurred. I’ve lived in places where you don’t talk business with your friends; it’s taboo. It’s hard to start a […]

How Focused is Your Feedback?

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.

To Teach and To Learn

One of the things that leaves me feeling grateful about about the work I get to do is that I learn as much from my participants as they do from me.  Dr. Carol Dweck, in her book  Mindset:  The New Psychology of Success, beautifully reminds us how critical cultivating a love of learning is to our success […]

There is Power in Writing it Down

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 | No Comments

I’m a believer in the power of writing down your goals and dreams – to putting language to vision.  And yet…I’m not always as consistent or mindful about it as I’d like to be.  I get busy.  Taking the time to write everything down seems like an extra step – when I could just dive […]

I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of senior executives who have found themselves in transition.  Amazing men and women who have been in workforce 20 – 30 years, and for a multitude of reasons have found themselves, often for the first time in their careers, looking for “what’s next”. Most have accomplished […]

Is Your Philosophy Stuck in Your Head?

One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. – Eleanor Roosevelt There’s quite a lot of talk these […]

Do They Know?

I’ve always thought it would be helpful to read minds.  Then we’d know.  We’d know what people think and not have to worry about the whole assumptions-thing, and could actually deal with what is real.  But then again…we’d know…right?!  And that would certainly come with its own set of complications.  But since we can’t actually […]

Are You Bringing Your Best REAL You?

  We’re all so good.  We’ve read all the books, and the Influencer posts, and the cute-quippy-quotes that make us think and reflect.  We’ve been ever-so-subtly-trained in how to play the game and win.  We know the right things to say.  We know how to talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk.  We’ve worked so hard to do what […]

You’ll Move Up the Ladder When…

You know when you have the kind of conversation that leaves you glowing afterward?  When you’re talking with someone and the thoughts and ideas are flowing so effortlessly that you wish you had written them down, but you were too engaged to even think about it at the time.  And when the conversation ends you’re […]
