Feedback That Inspires

A key step to creating high-performance teams. I have often quoted George Bernard Shaw when working with teams to improve collaboration and overall performance ‘The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place’.

Isn’t Everyone Scared of Snakes

If you are the kind of person who likes listening to someone talk at nausea about how amazing their last vacation was feel free to reach out separately. I won’t do that here. But I do want to share with you a shortContinue reading “Isn’t Everyone Scared of Snakes”

Sharing Your Struggling Creates Connection

I have a bad habit of not wanting to appear weak. Particularly in front of the people closest to me. Unless I can turn it into a joke or have the success story to go with it then stoicism is the default play.

What I Learned the Week of June 10th, 2022

What I Learned the Week of May 27th, 2022

This week I must admit I struggled quite a bit with being in this world. I found I was not listening to as many podcasts or engaged on social media.

What’s Killing Collaboration? It’s Not What You Think.

First, why is collaboration important? Leaders and organizations have been pushing the goal for collaboration for decades. Sometimes with great urgency and enthusiasm but too often without a real plan for how to make it happen. Through no fault of their own. Motivation for collaboration has been both a desire for something that just soundsContinue reading “What’s Killing Collaboration? It’s Not What You Think.”

 Pod Casts – Birds Aren’t Real Armchaired & Dangerous interview with David Farrier who is a New Zealand journalist and actor. I went into this podcast not sure what to expect.
