Pause: What Is the Most Loving Thing to Do?

What’s the most loving than I can do for myself, for others, for this community, for the earth? What would our world look like if we paused and asked ourselves this before speaking in a meeting, with family, at a rally, or on transportation?

That is not what I am here to talk about today. What great organizational supervisors and coaching supervisors have in common is cultivating a culture of credibility, trust and support. Successful supervisors also deliver effective, constructive feedback. Supervision contributes as well to quality assurance and professional development.

As a coaching supervisor now and previously as a social work supervisor, I find a key […]

RESPECT: Find Out What It Means to You & Me: Cultural Differences

Simply saying “we want a culture of respect” is not enough! That can mean different things to different people based on their culture. Without understanding those different cultural expectations of respect, it will be challenging to foster the relationships you want, successfully attracting and retaining business and talent.

This is an example of one aspect covered in our culturally intelligent programs for leaders and coaches. 

For example, you say to your coaching client, “let me know if I were to say or do anything that unintentionally offends you.” Within some cultures, they would not […]

Breakdown or Breakthrough?

On the anniversary of 9/11, with hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes, are we breaking down or breaking through? Consider a tree breaking through an acorn, underground, to sprout. It is not always easy and sometimes painful, yet life and growth await on the other side of breaking through. And it is a combination of efforts including water, fertile earth and sun.

I am inspired by how people come together to support and partner with each other, across what might normally be dividing lines, to get through disasters.
