The Thing We Do Most That Helps Us the Least

It’s often said that, in the absence of proper information, people come to their own conclusions.

Have you ever made an assumption about a situation that simply wasn’t true?

Playing with the Boys (Literally!): A Lesson From Alice Cooper’s Guitarist

PlayingWithTheBoys newsletter 1

Earlier this week, I saw Alice Cooper live in concert. It was a great show! It’s remarkable that at age 69, he’s so energetic – a real showman, and a true professional. He gave an excellent performance!

Are You Checking In With Yourself?

As I checked in for my flight this morning, I couldn’t help thinking the following:

We check in for travel, we check in with our significant others, we check in at work, but how often do we check in with ourselves?

Having A Greater Impact Every Time You Communicate

Are You Communicating with MORE HASTE AND LESS SPEED?

So often, in an effort to respond to a situation immediately, we hastily send out an email, answer a question or make a call that lacks thought.

As a result, the recipient either misunderstands the communication, doesn’t get the full context, or is unnecessarily annoyed.

The Greater Impact of Your Facial Expressions

FacialExpressions newsletter 3
In a recent workshop on Leadership Presence, one of the participants shared that  her manager often asked her if something was upsetting her.

She was mystified, because as far as she was concerned she had been fully engaged and positive in the meetings.

The Greater Impact of Your INNERVERSE

So, how would you rate the current state of your innerverse?

I was thinking about my internal world, my internal dialogue, and my relationship with myself, and I came up with a great name for all of that: my INNERVERSE!

To me, that term encapsulates all the elements of one’s inner state of being, including our headspace and the way we feel about ourselves.

So, how would you rate the current state of your INNERVERSE?
