Recognizing All Parts Played

Now more than ever, we are part of an increasingly larger network of people, which beckons for crystal clarity on the roles we play. Who is the star of the show at work or in life, the person taking on a heroic role? You may know someone playing this role, or maybe it is you.…

Strong Roots

Three weeks ago, I trekked to a town in Minnesota – population 345 – to reconnect with some of my dad’s mother’s family members. We get together every 10 years, so it’s no surprise that many make the effort to travel from points across the country for the three-day event. From the eight children of…

Avoiding Group Blink

As we act faster than ever just to stay on top of everything these days, it’s so important to remember that silence does not necessarily mean alignment. You may have personally experienced this: Your team leader shares a vision, and you are secretly uncomfortable with it or have different ideas. Yet despite your internal gut…

Community Involvement

LAITHOS believes that brilliant leadership: inspires leadership in others; is a catalyst for great cultures; and shares a vision that generates community.  During my two-decade corporate career, I had opportunities to fix, change, and create processes and systems for almost all company functions. In early career days, my focus was to educate people on new…

We Are the Solution

I don’t spend a lot of time on social media. Too often, it seems as if it’s used to validate our beliefs about current events instead of looking to solve problems which affect us. I prefer conversation. Invariably, I learn something new or see something differently. It may not change my beliefs, but it can…

The Unexpected Journey

The coaching engagement has finished, and the client says: “This isn’t what I expected … it’s made a huge difference in my life.”  When my clients realize that their greatest learnings – the biggest takeaways – from our time together have nothing to do with why we started coaching in the first place, I get…

A Life of Service

I was blown away this week by the example set by Elizabeth Bonker. At 15 months, she was diagnosed with nonverbal autism. Last Sunday, she gave the valedictorian speech at Rollins College. Her speech and her journey are inspirational. Encouraging her classmates to use their voices, she said: “God gave you a voice. Use it.…

Frustrated Lately?

Many of the conversations I’ve heard lately are about people’s frustrations…with their employer’s return-to-work decisions, with other people, with rising prices, and so on. When coaching executives, I often ask “How’s it supposed to be?” I use this question when I hear a complaint to uncover a person’s vision for what they wish were the…

24/7 Feedback

Thanks for the Feedback, by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen, reminded me that feedback surrounds us 24/7 when we pay attention. Thinking about this took me back to when I hired my first coach. It was the year after my sister died and I decided to make a major career change, moving almost 5,000 miles…

Failure as a Foundation

I feared failure for much of my childhood and did my best to avoid it by aiming for perfection. It wasn’t until my early adulthood that I started noticing something wasn’t working. The more perfect I tried to be, the more upset I became with the outcomes. I realized that I needed to cut myself…
