Who’s Watching You?

Do you ever have the feeling that you’re being watched?  It’s not a paranoid thing. It’s a reality. You really ARE being watched! The odd thing about social media and selfie sticks and all the public attention that happens is that you might end up asking yourself, “Do I look okay?”  Instead, we all need to be asking ourselves, “Who …

Doing What Others Can’t

How is it possible that some people get so lucky?     I mean, really, how do some people seem to do what others can’t do?   Recently, for example, I’ve been on stages in both Hollywood and in New York.  My first book, Choosing Your Power, is having a resurgence of interest, and a group of good people is …

Lost In The Sauce

We use the term “train wreck” to describe something that’s horrible, but we can’t seem to look away from.  In fact, we’re drawn to it and if someone – a fellow human – is described as a train wreck, it means that there’s a lot that has gone really wrong in their life (and you’re glad you’re not them, bless …

Your Current Transition

Besides being pretty darn good at getting people unstuck, I also focus on your transitions and help you build a stronger “next” for yourself.  So let’s explore that a bit.   You are in a transition of some sort right now, right? Yes. Right, so is the transition you’re in related to your career, relationships (intimate or social), finances, health, …

The Only Way

Every so often, words of wisdom echo through my head.  Sometimes the words make me cringe and sometimes they seem to inspire.   What’s great is that the words that didn’t really land for me back then seem to be more meaningful now.  I’m reflecting on the words of my dissertation chair, when I was first working on my doctorate …

Two Sexy Secrets

People who work with me are pretty high achievers.  They’ve got a lot of outward success that they can point to.  What’s funny (odd, not humorous) is that they’re still in the struggle. Most people look at others who are successful and think that “they’ve made it.”  While those viewed as truly successful look at themselves and wonder how to …

Doing Nothing Very Well

The 80-year-old Japanese master softly utters these words:   It looks like I’m doing nothing, but I’m doing it very well.   He smiles wryly and we all get it.  Leadership takes so many forms.   He’s amazing and if you’ve ever been in the presence of a true master of his or her environment, you’re spellbound.  They demonstrate their …

It Really IS Simple!

As a leader, you’ve got goals for your company, division, unit, department, family, and self.   You have a pretty good idea about what you want to accomplish this year. You know what you have to do. It’s Simple.   To avoid failure just after this first quarter (yep, the hiccups that happen in March), you MUST recognize this one …

Wishes, Resolutions, or Certainty

This is the week of lie-preparation. Good-bye 2018.  Boy oh boy, 2019 is going to be something.  This is the year that I… What…?  What is 2019 the year that you do, become, or live into? I call this the week of lie preparation.  We don’t mean to lie to ourselves. We just get used to it.  And then we …

Leadership Leverage: Your New Superpower

You’ve GOT to be looking to the year ahead right now, right? Over this past week I’ve heard people talking about just making it through to the end of the year.   You, a leader, are designing the end of your year.  You’re leveraging the time you have to make your difference now AND in the future.   The turning …
