As we journey down the path of living a life of enough, there seems to come a time when we wake up to everyone else’s scarcity. For me, this discovery took awhile.

Here’s a riddle: What does a leader do when she’s sick? (Wait for the answer.) First, consider our options: We can ignore our illness and align ourselves with the traditional, cultural way: to continue—or try to continue–to produce through our un-well condition. We often know the risks of this, but do it anyway. In thisRead the Rest…

In a post last week, Commitment, on anniversary eve, I had written: The power of commitment resides in the quality of attention. What I attend is what I am committed to.

What does it mean to be a leader? Is an inquiry I have grappled with for myself and with our clients for a decade. In looking at the research and in our own work environments we all see that many of our colleagues and family members are over stressed and over tired and can’t seemRead the Rest…

In a workshop about mind-reading with SAVI Communications, I discovered something about myself. Like most human meaning-making creatures, I have been interpreting behaviors and assigning them meaning as if they are the truth. This is a form of mind-reading. Peter Senge’s Ladder of Inference is a great tool to show how Adding Meaning is aRead the Rest…

Budgets are the foundations of businesses and families that run smoothly. Mostly we budget our money, planning out how to spend our expected income, using our needs, values and desires as guides. We also budget our time. We often do this less explicitly, unless we take Rosemary Tator’s courses within her More Time for YouRead the Rest…

I still regret my mistake. I don’t prescribe to “everything happens for a reason.” Though I didn’t accidentally end a life, what I did stinks and was wrong. Sometimes that happens.
