    How Today’s “Trinity of Extremes” Affects Us All

    Yes, we live in a fast paced world. Yes, we are often at tipping points of stress. Yes, we can do better. “We are all in it together and no one wins unless we all do.” This mantra sounds good, however, for most of us it sounds naïve. Sometimes the world seems to be spinning out of control and the issues are too big and a single individual, a mere speck in the universe, is too small to make a…Read More

  2. Naughty Can Become NICE

    The road was slick from the rain. I did not want to complain because the Bay Area needs to fill up its rivers and reservoirs as fast as possible. None the less, when a car swerved just a bit too close for comfort I shouted out from that place inside that activates stress “Watch out you jerk.” My nine year old granddaughter said simply, “Grand-mom that was not very mindful. When we get home I…Read More

  3. Corporate Team Building: Creative Team Building Exercises

    Newest research, hot off the press is that we live longer by standing and walking around. So many of us are chained to computers and sit, sit, sit all day long. More stand up desks are being sold and even ones that are attached to a tread mill. Everyone knows being thin and rich is good. Well, we won’t get there if we do not start moving around more. The research suggests that we should walk aro…Read More

  4. FREEDOM for the FOURTH

    What does real freedom look like? It means being real, being who you are and not being afraid to express yourself in a healthy, positive way. Let’s celebrate FREEDOM this year in a new and powerful way. Let’s give each other the nod of approval that we can just experiment and be whoever we are without feeling judged. Now, that would be FREEDOM! Think of it this way. As a kid we were all GUTSY…Read More

  5. Take the Best Route from Management to Leadership

    “How does a manager become a leader?” you ask. This is one of the most important questions in all of business. What the work world needs today are more leaders who can take charge in a strategic way and help everyone in the company have a “go for it and grow from it” mind set. Here are some vital differences: Management: Tell and Do…………………………….Leadership: Ask and Adv…Read More

  6. Leadership and Hidden Sources of Conflict

    One day at a senior staff meeting Michael expressed strong doubts of George’s idea to acquire another company. Michael and George started to raise their voices, much to the surprise of the rest of the management team. Michael was so angry he was physically shaking; he nearly lunged at his colleague. He knew even as he stood there that his behavior was irrational – way out of proportion to the…Read More

  7. Extraordinary Boss as Truth Teller

    Did you ever think it is better to tell just a little white lie rather than have someone be upset with you? We all have at one time or another. Then there is the opposite extreme where the truth is told in anger with judgment, blame and attack. Not pretty! What a gift to have a boss who is not afraid of the truth, who is willing to let you be uncomfortable for the sake of growth. What a rel…Read More

  8. Change: The Only Game in Town

    Erica works for a company that is always changing and it makes her crazy. “Why can't things just stay the same? Why is there always something that has to be done differently? What is wrong with the way it is now? I want to do my job one way, every day. Instead, my head is spinning,” she tells me. Most of us know how many quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies are in a dollar and we can make cha…Read More

  9. How Could Spontaneity Affect Entrepreneurs and Their Employees?

    Most entrepreneurs I've met are lots of fun. They usually have an idea a minute and the hardest thing for them to do is to keep focused. I know - I am, and was since I was a kid, an entrepreneur. My business days started with plays in our family garage with the neighborhood kids. I was the director, lead actor and producer. So, when we divided up the quarters that we charged the parents (n…Read More

  10. The 5 Telltale Signs of an Employee in Distress

    When should you intervene in a work/personal issue or should you? How much should you ask about a team member’s personal problem? How can you find the balance of what to ask or not ask and what are the telltale signs to watch for? Have you ever watched a really good employee begin to slide down a slippery slope of poor performance? Have you wondered how much you should intervene? Have you e…Read More
