Lessons from a Bag of Cat Food

February 27, 2018

The wrong assumptions lead to wrong conclusions. We know that. The key is to remember that we know that and to actively question our assumptions. I forgot this and starved my cat in the process. He forgave me and is doing well. About a week ago I noticed that my cat wasn’t eating as much […]

The Missing Key For Organizational Success

November 16, 2017

For an organization to be successful it must have a compelling vision that people buy into, and there must be a healthy culture. Vision is critical. Culture is critical. But, there is something else that is just as critical. And that is unity. Unity. Not alignment. Alignment is a piece of unity. Unity is bigger. […]

Comfort vs Discomfort

October 10, 2017

This is how Wikipedia defines comfort: Comfort (or being comfortable) is a sense of physical or psychological ease, often characterized as a lack of hardship. Persons who are lacking in comfort are uncomfortable, or experiencing discomfort. People who are uncomfortable are lacking. Um, no. It is the people who are comfortable who are lacking. Let […]

The Misinterpretation of ‘Massive Action’

October 5, 2017

We’ve all heard if before, “Just take massive action, the results will happen.” People then run out and start doing lots of whatever it is they are doing.

Being right, or winning…take your pick

October 4, 2017

“Are you insulting my intelligence or mocking me?!! Seriously! You think that is okay?!” yelled Roger during our phone conversation. Roger and I had a major difference of expectations. Our companies had come together on a project where we had to work together and collaborate. Roger had one set of expectations, I had another. Neither […]

Pause, Then Respond

September 29, 2017

The “microwave mentality” has created, among other things, the problem of instant response. “Now” is the mantra of modern society. We Tweet expecting immediate responses. There are social media platforms that if a post isn’t quickly responded to, it either gets buried or is deleted. We don’t call Dominos to order pizza because it takes […]

The Importance of Cat Videos

The work is there. It’s right in front of you…or all around you. But, you just can’t seem to make any progress. You want to press on, but it’s not happening. Perhaps, you don’t even want to press on, but you know you need to because the work needs to get done. Either way, you […]

Questions are the fuel to achieve goals

First, I must confess that goals don’t drive me. Some people set a goal and the very fact they have a goal drives them to achieve the goal. And that goal is concrete, it doesn’t get changed. It’s either accomplished, or not. I’m not wired that way. Goals aren’t concrete, my goals can change at […]

Breaking Out Of Group Think

September 26, 2017

Organizations develop thinking styles. That is, people in an organization tend to start thinking similar thoughts in a similar manner. Better known as “group think.” It happens whether we want it to or not. It happens in all organizations. Sometimes, we want group think to happen. A company, wants to present itself consistently in a […]

Disproportionate Response

September 5, 2017

“You are the second person to come try to take away my food! I AM NOT DONE YET! Leave my plate alone! What’s wrong with you people?!” This was said by the woman sitting at the table next to me when the Server pleasantly asked if she was done with her lunch. She was loud […]
