Step Into Shared Power, Leading to Peace and Prosperity Rather than Bullying!

Our world was created for harmony and peace. Yet shootings, terrorism, war, injustice, bullying erupt all around us. My heart breaks.

Thankfully I have “only” experienced shootings, terrorism, and war via the media. Unfortunately, like many of you, I cannot say the same for bullying and injustice.

“I am not assigning you the type of clients promised because you did not close out the meeting room.” My boss, threatened by my credentials and status, delighted in pointing out my shortcomings including any tiny detail missed and thwarting my career goals. She called for yet another […]

What Message Will You Bear To The World (On Your Skin?!)

“Ask yourself – If you had a message you could share with the world, and be guaranteed that everyone could hear and understand what you said… what would you say?

We have found it is a deeply moving and powerful experience for people to dig deep, uncover their authentic message and fully own it by writing it on their skin.

Make your voice heard! What you have to say matters. Share you message, take a stand in and for what you value. We’re challenging you to pare down to what feels like the most essential part of your being, your message and […]

“World Changers Shaped Here”: What is Your Vision?

“World Changers Shaped Here”: what do you experience when you read that? Its boldness excites me. Clear visions motivate and inspire us. SMU (Southern Methodist University), one of my alma maters, has chosen this vision (and motto). What is your vision?

Do you feel unclear, spinning your wheels as you approach a turning point?

Time for you/your team to fully, powerfully step into all you are created to be and achieve your desired results?

As a coach, I have been boldly living out my vision for about 20 years (which also simplifies decision making). I partner with leadership teams and groups to help them […]

Is Your Vision Unclear? Use this Proven Process!


Is Your Vision Unclear?

Building on the magical metaphors “backdoor to the brain” approach shared in a previous blog, I  share in this video a proven Envisioning Process I facilitate with Leadership teams as well as Executive and Leadership Coaching Clients to clarify vision, including corporate culture, and also to build teams.

Like magical metaphors, images and stories slide in through the back door of the brain, without setting off the “Danger, danger!” alarms of change.

I offer my own example of my calling to be part of the change in US/Cuba relationship, […]

How to Share Power and Boost Prosperity by Reducing Bullying (What Are You Passionate About? Part 3)

You know the organizational cost of bullying: $188,136 for a single, pre-escalated conflict, using the Dana Measure. What lies underneath that behavior? The inability to share power, another of my passions. This is also how political stalemates and wars often begin, and consider their cost! (And wars entail a huge expenditure of resources-people-lives lost, rape; destruction of: livestock, crops, land, the environment)

Welcome back to the What Are You Passionate About? Series, where you have learned about how to increase your Cultural Intelligence by addressing Unconscious Bias as well as how to achieve Quadruple Bottom Line results.  These three topics all address […]

Increase Your Cultural Intelligence by Addressing Unconscious Bias: What Are You Passionate About, Part 2

“It is impossible to not work (and live) inter-culturally,” I say, when you factor in not only nationality but also gender, generation, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, etc. Consider a couple celebrating their first holiday together, and discovering “that is not the way we do it in my family!” The classic intercultural question comes into play: who adjusts, and how much?

Beyond differing holiday traditions, lack of cultural awareness and intelligence (CQ) can result in loss of trust, reputation, business; even lives. I write this at the time of the Ferguson Missouri jury results announcement and protests and riots. It […]

How to Increase Quadruple Bottom Line Results: What Are You Passionate About? 1. Sustainability

What are you passionate about, and how does that show up in your life? Two things I am passionate about are sustainability and Cultural Intelligence.  I take a stand for both. They both address stewardship of resources, including talent and people.  I speak on and lead a Mentor Coaching Group that incorporates Cultural Intelligence.  That is next month’s topic!

I start with sustainability as Josie McLean and I addressed the topic at the Asia Pacific Coaching Conference and what follows is my webpage on the topic, “Sustainability and Quadruple Bottom […]
