I Have My Doubts

I have always enjoyed watching the Summer Olympics. While I like watching certain events, I appreciate the athleticism of all competitors. This was the first year I also watched the Paralympics; and the word appreciation doesn’t even scratch the surface. These athletes model courage, fortitude, perseverance, drive, focus, and creativity. These were just a few…

Sensing into Influence

Influence doesn’t happen in a vacuum. I’ve coached numerous executives who want to be great at influencing. As we explore what it takes, it quickly becomes apparent that influence starts with paying attention to signals … signals that come from within you and around you. Influence starts with noticing signals or sensations within you. As…

Before I Die

The last time I was in London, I came across a giant chalkboard with the words “Before I die …” The board was filled with people’s thoughts – some happy, some painful, some sad, some aspirational, some inspirational. For all who wrote, I think it helped to release it on the board. There is power…

Silence is Not Golden

My husband and I are halfway through a four-month renovation on our home. Over the first couple of months, the small crew of craftsmen have formed a true team: The collective mission is shared, their roles are defined, individual goals are set, and results are routinely delivered. As a homeowner, I certainly appreciate the “what”…

A Glass Full of Wonder

You’ve likely heard the terms “glass half-full” and “glass half-empty” used to describe the outlooks people can have when looking at the same, seemingly exact, thing.

Measure Progress a Step at a Time

One of the reasons people work with coaches is to change certain outcomes, which means evolving one or more of their behaviors (because we focus on what they can control). Their excitement is high when we first begin because they can’t wait to get it “right.” They have convinced themselves that once they understand what…

Blast Off to Leadership

Recently, the world witnessed some extraordinary feats…one of those being Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson both going into space. They are now astronauts! Based on the Wiki definition of astronaut, it is usually a “person trained, equipped, and deployed by a human spaceflight program to serve as a commander or crew member aboard a spacecraft”…

Living Your Dreams

Last week, Wally Funk joined Jeff Bezos in space. There’s been a lot of press about how she was part of the Mercury 13; but there is so much more to her story. At 17, she crushed two vertebrae in a skiing accident and was told she would never walk again. She didn’t consider that…

Lift Your Creativity

As you may know by now, the LAITHOS partners—ME, Jen, and I—rotate responsibility each week for sharing our perspectives on leadership impact. This was my week and, as I opened my computer, that paralyzing “writer’s block” descended upon me. I racked my brain to find what I considered a topic that hadn’t been covered. After…
