Winning the Virtual Race

By February, the vast majority of individuals who crafted New Year’s resolutions have given up. The way we create these goals often sets us up for failure. I’ve learned what works for me—and many others: reframe my objectives as commitments I make to myself. As an example, a key commitment I make to myself involves [...]

A Leader’s Do vs Be Conundrum

We’ve all recently ended not just a year, but also a decade.  Decades—on the calendar or in our life—offer a unique opportunity to evaluate progress toward critical goals.

Pause here. It’s not just for effect.

I read Cashman’s Leadership from the Inside Out: Becoming a Leader for Life [affiliate] for the first time about a decade ago. In this prior work, Cashman shares theory and process for developing as an authentic leader. I confess: I’ve only read reviews and book summaries so far on “Pause,” and gave it a quick scan after ordering [...]

Wisdom 2.0

A favorite phrase from my explorations of Wisdom 2.0 is the “conscious use of technology.” Technology increasingly infiltrates our daily life; I know only a few individuals who intentionally limit any intrusion from digital devices: no cell phones, no tablets, no iPods. At the opposite end of the spectrum, and far easier to identify, we find individuals who allow devices [...]
