Why did you succeed? I worked really hard. Why didn’t you succeed? The weather, the traffic, my computer, the regulations, my boss, my peers, my car, the company policies. I’ve been so busy! The dog ate my homework. The serpent beguiled me. This is the Self-Serving Bias in action. A behavioral influence in which we […]

What if achieving our goals doesn’t matter? What if the power of setting goals lies not in accomplishing them but in who we have to become to accomplish them? When we earnestly pursue goals, we change our behavior, we improve our processes, we take on new actions. To be successful in our goals, we have […]

I attended the Million Women’s March in Washington DC last weekend with my mom, Cousin Lynn, and her daughter Riley. It was inspiring, empowering, and emotional. (To be fair, it was also at times overwhelming, frustrating, and confusing.) The issues people came to discuss were countless (many of which I had been personally incognizant). And […]

I have been editing. Not a document…my life. I’ve been editing my house, my office, my closets and cabinets, my clothes, my news consumption, my books, my conversations, and even my time.

Traditionally, […]

I want to lead like Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback since 2006. In August when Tony suffered a broken back that sidelined him for three months, rookie Dak Prescott was promoted to starting quarterback, but merely as a placeholder until Tony returned. And suddenly the rookie became a sensation! To date, Dak has led […]

“That’s crazy! Why are you doing that!?” my friend challenged. Lightning! “Wow! That’s amazing. What was that like?” my other friend appreciated. Thunder! Thunder claps. Lightning strikes. When we listen with thunder we clap with acknowledgement, recognition, interest, and support. When we listen with lightning we strike from defensiveness or judgment.   Why? When we listen with lightning, we take […]

I admit it. I have a leader crush on Arkadi Kuhlmann, the founder and former CEO of ING Direct. Why? Because he leads with conviction. He believes passionately that the banking industry needs to be reinvented. So he recruited from outside the industry to infuse the team with fresh ideas and to combat those of grizzled […]
