October 12, 2011 2 Comments

This is a bit of a silly story but still one with a good learning point. It started when I went looking for a new car. I researched the features that I wanted and I filtered my needs down to one car. Next step, to go for a test drive. The result… I was quite […]

Being Centered… Maybe Not

March 31, 2011 1 Comment

Often people say that you need to be centered.  That you need to find your center. I won’t disagree with that but I will add a slightly different point of view.  While you need to be centered and know who it is that you are as a leader, business leader, or personal and professional person.  You […]

Leadership is everywhere.  And, examples and stories of leadership are everywhere too.  Even on tv you can find great examples of leadership.  One genre that has a lot of examples are “cop” shows or any show where there is an implicit leadership structure.  These kinds of shows are ready made for stories about teamwork and […]

One, they involve an area that I love, “perception”.  Here’s an example of the ad that show’s how we can all perceive things differently.  It’s wonderfully different and makes a point.

Socrates said many amazing things. None of which really needs to be improved upon. However, let’s look at the comment, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” It’s a very interesting statement that is making a certain commentary which has a bit of truth to it. If one were to live without any examination of […]

Attitude is Everything…

This is a short course on attitude, visually.  We all have those people in our life who send us those emails that make their rounds.  And, we all from time to time will read those emails, although most of the time, we’ll just delete them.  And, less frequently, we’ll find an email that really makes […]

April 8, 2010 0 Comments

You can take the title of this post however you like.  It has many great meanings.  But, to flesh out what I’m thinking let me tell you about something that happened to me this morning.  We all suffer from both can and can’t mindsets.  And, they can both show up in interesting ways.  I was […]
