“I just gotta Coco Chanel that proposal,” I remarked as we walked up the wet asphalt. My friend turned to me and said, “Ok, I’ve heard you say that before. What do you mean by that?” I do repeat that phrase to myself often. When I’m working on a keynote or training, I’m so tempted […]

“We didn’t think you’d notice the difference,” the guys said when they came back from the store as they put the Schnucks-brand tonic water on the granite countertop. “It’s just like Fever Tree, isn’t it?” Oh, no, gentlemen. No, it is not. Yet, we were all too tired from the week to go back out […]

Ideally, feedback plays a crucial role in self-awareness that moves you from the blindspot space to the open space where change can happen (remember the Johari Window from last month?)

“This is the call I didn’t know I needed,” my client burst out with a huge smile on her face. Janie was part of a group I coach inside a large animal health company that is working to help its people not only gain skills, but also work better together to change the culture. And […]

At the small conference table in his new director’s office, Kevin confessed, “I feel so confused, and I’m just a failure at this.” Everything began to spill out: He didn’t feel supported. Other departments demanded things he just had to figure out on his own. So he was creating goals and tasks that could prove […]

“Hi, this is the nurse at HoneyRock…” No one wants this phone call. It’s never good. (Poor school and camp nurses, they never get to call with good news unexpectedly!) Adventures in the camp van to the local ER an hour away and an X-ray revealed a broken foot for our youngest daughter. And a […]

I totaled my dad’s car when I was 16—in my own driveway… I backed the ‘82 Cutlass Supreme into a random F250 black truck with an enormous tow hitch that had chosen that moment to turn around in our driveway in our h-shaped driveway. What I didn’t use that winter morning? My mirrors. Cost me […]
