OBSTACLE! DAMN OBSTACLES!

Let’s talk about your obstacle or obstacles.  I am presuming you have one or two. Have you noticed there seems to be a higher level of mindless moaning these days? Especially since the issues stemming from COVID are constantly highlighted? Maybe your OWN life has been turned upside down because of the pandemic. Do you …

The Power of Story

Earlier this week I was gobsmacked by this visual. It is brilliantly simple, isn’t it? Stories trump statistics. All. The. Time. I am sharing this because far too many of us, myself included, get stuck in certain parts of our business or professional lives. See, technology has given us way more data than we could …

Who was Your BESTEST Boss?

Who was your bestest boss? I am talking about the person you reported to for whom you would do anything. The one you took your best ideas to, the one for whom you did your best work. The one you trusted to have your back, to understand you. They always had time to show you …
