Intentional or Committed?

The themes that come up in my work with my clients across the country inspire me to share this with you as a Wednesdays With Wayne post.  It feels a little more personal when the themes my clients wrestle with are the same ones that seem to crop up for me.  If there are that many indicators of a direction, …

In or Out

Life can be pretty complex sometimes.  What I bring to you via my Wednesdays With Wayne often reflects the themes that are coming up for my clients pretty regularly.  Sometimes, what I write about is parallel to what’s going on in my own life.  So by joining me here, we’re working through some things together.  Thanks for that.  It’s a …

Now you’re cookin’

We recently switched the kind of pans we use when cooking on the stove.  Sure, that’s a strange thing to think about for a Wednesdays With Wayne topic.  And here we are.  What do stovetops, pans, and you have in common? Conduction! Sometimes the pan brings elements to the food being cooked that we don’t always account for.  There are …

WHAT’S NEXT??

What’s next for you?  Not, what are you working on now, but really… what’s next? It’s a huge question because in the world of motivation, that’s the key.  In this week’s Wednesdays With Wayne you get to do a little reflecting and THIS will help your leadership. I recently finished shooting a series of videos for my online course on …

The One “Dance” Everyone Needs to Know

You know those moments when you think about something and cringe?  You know, the time that you look back and you just  know you could have handled something differently?  And then there are times that things go sideways and you don’t know how, but you end up feeling badly about how something seemingly so small played out to become that …

Leaders Learn

Never was I struck by the obstacle of ego more than with a recent group I was coaching.  Some members were so mired down by the need to hold onto control that they failed to look beyond what they already knew.  In so doing, they fought for being “right” and missed key opportunities to propel themselves to the richer, fuller …

In Two Minds

It may sound odd to say that HOW we think affects WHAT we think and that now, more than ever, we all need to understand certain cognitive processes.  Multiple studies over this past decade have explored the dual-process concepts of how we think.   Have you ever been talking with someone (in person or even on Social Media) and the …

Give It Up!

We all have something we’ve hung onto for too long.  Maybe you have a habit.  Maybe you even have a resolution… a New Year’s resolution from four or five years ago… maybe yours is a “someday” kind of thing.  It’s time to give it up. Yes, really.  As your advisor I’m saying that if you’ve hung onto something for this …

Fore! Leadership Lessons On Par

From the fifth floor, my hotel room balcony looked over the 17th hole of a pretty difficult golf course.  The water hazard was big enough to allow boats their passage, though only waterfowl frequented this one.   I’m not much of a golfer, but I do know a good stance and positive intent when I see it.  That all looks …

I wish I could…!

I wish I could just wave a magic wand and have all of this done for me.  We humans wish a lot.  We want things done for us while we take action in the opposite direction quite often.  We’ll wish to lose weight, become more fit, speak a new language, have more money, take more vacations, etc.  And then, we …
