Before you get started reading this, let me warn you that it is about twice as long as my normal posts, over 1200 words. I got started and the words just started flowing. I hope you find this useful.

Do You Have a Career or a Job?

As shocking as this might seem to my peers in the automotive industry, I am not much of a golfing fan.  The game of golf is something I tend to endure as part of my job.  I wrote a blog recently about how changing your attitude can change your pathway to success.  I decided to heed…

Going Up?

Seldom does some one board an elevator from an upper floor to ride the elevator up.  Most of the time, if someone boards the elevator from an upper floor it is to ride back to the first floor.  Therefore, when considering progress, why let someone impede your progression by not being on the project from the ground floor?


Please allow me to further develop this concept for…

Making It Over The Wall

When I was a teenager, I had to have some extensive surgery that landed me in a wheel chair for a few months.  Recently, one of my physical therapist from that adventure found me on Facebook and was compelled to share his story of that short part of my life.  He was a new therapist when he took on my case and had heard how hard teenagers can be in cases like mine.  He braced himself for a…

Huge News Fall Out and the Boy Who Cried Wolf

Before class started on one peaceful Saturday morning, my yoga instructor made this big announcement with much fanfare that there was some huge event coming to our studio.  There were no additional details as to what the event was, when it might occur, etc.  Just a stay tuned teaser.  I was so excited that I could barely focus during class wondering what this event was, when it was going…

Empowerment beyond "Just Because" or "Because I Told You So"

When I was a child, I was the question asking machine.  Now that I am an adult, I am the question asking machine.  Not because I want to be annoying.  I really want to understand why.  Knowing the why helps me deliver on the expectations.  Knowing the why gives me the follow through to see an opportunity to completion. 


Understanding why gives me access to…

Advancement is Management Minus the Power Struggle

Best piece of advice I have been given as a manager:  Always be teaching others how to be you.  Inspire them to be gunning for your desk and to become you.  Humbly step aside when they replace you.  Without them to replace you, the opportunities of your advancement decline.


Right after that tidbit of wisdom was imparted on me, I was asked to spear head a rather large…

Closing the Gap

During a department head meeting in which processes where being discussed, it became evident there was an information gap for our clients.  Our recruiting team was reporting a break down in information regarding who we are, what we do and what we have to offer.  The team shared how they answer certain questions over and over again.  They reported the funny misconceptions that they often…

Transforming a Weakness into a Dynamic Super Talent

My youngest sister was born premature and as a result had pulmonary problems as a child.  Because she suffered from chronic asthma, there was little expectation for her to be a strong and healthy child.  One of the therapies she was subjected to in an effort to strengthen her lungs, was swimming underwater.  I am sure this started out as a terrifying experience for a young child who had…

Team Building as the Coaching Manager

The sport that so many predicted I would excel at due to my size was actually the sport where I floundered.  When it came to the hardwood, the only skill I had was shooting free throws.  My coaches could have just given up on me and focused their attention on the superstars on the team, but instead they invested time and energy into the one thing I could do well.  In place of teaching me…

Fixing by Feeling Your Way

In a previous blog, I told a story about my father being deaf and how this becomes a superpower for him in business.  (To read more on this back story, please visit “Seeing What People Say”)  I had no idea what a gift my father had given me during my childhood until I became a…

Standing at a Crossroad and Finding The Sum of You in Three Words

There are forks in the road in everyone’s lives.  The pathway we choose when faced with at fork can sometimes dramatically alter our journey.  I stood at one of those forks when I was invited to participate with The Landmark Forum.  I heard about the cult rumors about this organization, but…
