Drop The "Shoulds"

It's natural to move toward what feels good and away from what doesn't, natural as well to have values, principles, and morals. But when these healthy inclinations become internal rules – "shoulds," "musts," and "gottas" – then there is a big problem.

The One Attribute Leaders Need to Thrive

What I believe is at leadership’s core is authenticity. It is geography, industry, and situation agnostic. A leaders’ willingness and ability to stick to his or her core values directly affects how they respond in difficult situations, during uncertain times, and when stakes are high.

Pitching a Better Leadership Model with Mark Greenburg

I recently had the pleasure of doing a podcast with Mark Greenburg, and we discussed his book Elevated Leadership: A Pitch-By-Pitch Guide to Business, Life, and Baseball. In his book, Greenburg makes many parallels between baseball and leadership, and you don’t have to be a baseball fan to get ...

The Truth About the Stages of Grief

Grief is not a linear timeline, but instead a whirlpool of emotions, some of them reoccurring. Understanding the stages of grief can help manage the various emotions that come up.

Hold Wants Lightly

Getting caught up in wanting – wanting both to get what's pleasant and to avoid what's unpleasant – is a major source of suffering and harm for oneself and others.

How to Really Listen to Employees

Can you tell when someone’s listening intently? I can. They’re actively engaged, making eye contact, and fully taking in my comments, not thinking about the next thing they’re going to say. I know I’m being seen and heard, and the listener respects what I have to say.

The Good, the Bad, and the Stressful

Stress is an emotion that we experience a lot, especially in today’s world. We don’t seem to have enough time to do everything we need to do. We have lots of tasks, and no plan to pursue them. We may feel worry about what we cannot control. In short, there are many reasons why stress is a challenge.

How to Boost Energy and Confidence at Work

A successful company depends on successful employees, and successful employees depend on successful engagement.  When an employee isn't engaged, they're minimizing their company's potential by not maximizing their own.

Tried Everything and Still Over Scheduling? Try these Proven Time Management Tips

I’ve been known as a perpetual over-scheduler for much of my professional life. I’m not sharing this to gain your sympathy, or to impress you. I agree emphatically with Brene Brown who says we need to give up exhaustion as a status symbol. But even for the most mindful, doing less is easier said ...

Miscommunication: Why Does it Happen?

Communication, thanks to technology, has been easier, and yet it seems harder at the same time. There is so much room for miscommunication, which involves someone misinterpreting something you've said.

Feel Cared About

Everyone knows what it’s like to care about someone. Remember being with a friend, a mate, a pet: you feel warmly connected, and want him or her not to suffer and to be happy.

More Consciousness. Less Feedback

Rat race. It's a phrase we all know, and its origins began in a lab, centuries ago, as rats raced through a maze to be the first to get the cheese. It seems so archaic, and yet, the analogy is still true today, and that's a problem.

How to be Mindful at Work

Mindfulness has become a popular subject, and for a good reason. It involves being aware of the present and keeping any distractions or self-defeating thoughts out of your head. Many who have tried mindfulness swear by its health benefits, from sleeping better to even reducing your risk of disease.

Managing Means Continuous Learning

Many first–time managers are thrown into their new roles with little or no preparation. If you're one of them, hopefully you thrive on developing others and leading a team. With minimal (to no) training and the desire to get good fast, you're probably looking for tips to help you improve your managerial ...

Raising Self-esteem for Better Health and Fulfillment

Most of us would agree that there are cultural and socioeconomic barriers in life. Some people have grown up in environments whereas children they were told they would succeed, contribute to society, and live an abundant life.

Love Someone

Love can be expressed in simple or subtle ways, such as a call to a friend, more patience with a partner, saying what you liked about a co–worker's idea, or seeing the being behind the eyes of a stranger passing on the sidewalk.

Anger - A Misunderstood Emotion

Anger is quite misunderstood. It's an emotion associated with those who have lost control. Those who are dangerous. Those who are irrational. And there are some legitimate reasons to think that. Those who can't control their anger do need to seek help in order to make managing anger better for them.

10 Ways to Support Your Partner

For couples who have children here's a top ten list (in no particular order) of ways to support your partner.

Recalibrate Your Work-Life Balance with These 4 Questions

For many of us, home and work hold nearly equal importance. We want to be great parents, attentive friends, and stellar employees simultaneously, so we're constantly on the move, trying not to let one facet of our lives suffer for another.

Manage Up Like a Pro

Managers are people too! They are imperfect and need people to lean in. Even when you may be frustrated, do your best to step into their shoes and try and understand their actions, and what they may have going on.
