Yesterday I got into an argument with a colleague on a subject I know more about than he. At least that’s what I was thinking. I honestly can’t recall how it started, but somehow the conversation twisted into my area of expertise. He was dissecting the field that I have worked in for years and […]

NOT Biz as usual: New, renewed, renewable.

January 11, 2013

11 days into the new year. Can you tell how it’s going to turn out? It’s an artificial break, I know, but I’m kind of partial to new beginnings. I am a sucker for starting things and love that feeling of a fresh new page before me, waiting to be written or drawn upon. So, […]

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 […]

Is self-esteem the enemy?

October 20, 2011

This morning I came across an article published by a religious group in which working with self-esteem was portrayed as dangerous, not only to religious beliefs but to reality-based decision making. After moving past my own defensiveness and professional slant, I do see how it could be misused and misinterpreted that way, but I also […]

The Social Media Diet for Top Management

March 23, 2011

It’s been almost a year since I wrote my last post on the subject. The one I illustrated with this very same picture by my friend Ricardo Morell. I really feel that connection, like the birds on the wire when I am engaged in social media. I am nothing less than a social media enthusiast! […]

There’s a new kind of leadership needed. One that rests on the willingness of people to follow, instead of the strength of authority. One that commands respect and reflection instead of blind obedience. One that works for all people involved: those who follow, those who are affected by the actions of the group, those that […]

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 […]
