Got a kick-ass project on a tight deadline with a growing team? Can you be too positive?

July 31, 2013

Sorry about the uber-long headline. I am sure you get the picture. Yesterday I was sharing my view about a huge project we are working on with a new set of collaborators when I got stopped in my tracks by a colleague. He felt I was being “too positive” by telling them I thought our […]

Creating the “Not to do” list.

April 19, 2012

It’s all a choice, I remind myself as the work piles up and I start frantically going through it. This is the busy season. I am coaching, training, planning, creating, talking to clients. And it’s all good, don’t get me wrong. I love it all. And if I continue to do it all I will […]

An innovator or a nut?

October 25, 2011

I’ve done some brave things in my life. Lately, a few that are big stretches for me, daring to move out of my comfort zone and risk not being liked (gasp)! Most recently I did a remote session via Instant Presenter to a live, very touchy-feely group in San Francisco, at the Human Element International […]

The end of dissent is such bad news!

April 12, 2011

Be afraid. When everyone is agreeing with you on all counts, day in and day out, there is something extremely wrong. Such contentment must be a sign of very bad news. Could it be possible that everyone has finally seen the light and is ready to embrace your truth as the one and only? Beware […]

Dropping the Balls

June 17, 2010

I know when I am in over my head because I start dropping the balls. Some of them fall on my head. Some go unnoticed for days. I might have forgotten to make a call, or a payment! I may have not gotten around to canceling that appointment, or that project! The point is, though […]

Citizens, Students or Teams.

May 17, 2010

In Mexico, several towns have an established occurrence called “Citizen’s Wednesday”. On the said day of the week, the Mayor will be out in the square to listen to the citizens’ requests and comments openly for a few hours. The idea is to bring government closer to the common citizen, opening different, more immediate channels […]

That One Thing

April 26, 2010

If you are anything like me and the people I work with, you have a full week ahead of you! There’s appointments to make, people to meet with, things to get done, calls to make, places to be. All this has to get done of course, but it can become overwhelming and put you into […]

April 21, 2010

Last week we explored the issue of leaving from the leader’s perspective, when it is precisely the leader who leaves. But what about those left behind in the organization?
