During January 2018 I’m writing a series of articles that begin with the phrase ‘Start your year…’ I will be offering some thoughts on how to start your year well.

He doesn’t see it. I know he doesn’t see it. He can’t see it. He’s not physically blind he is relationally blind. Every time this man walks into a room everybody cringes. Many begin to make excuses for an early departure. Conversations end when he approaches. Colleagues routinely avoid him. He blames everyone else for […]
It’s clear that we live in a time where subtlety and nuance are simply not appreciated, much less practiced. It seems the more brash and blunt people are the more we hear about them, and from them. While we have become very loud in our speaking we don’t seem to have gotten any better with […]

The greatest problem most of us face is us. Our biggest challenges stares back at us in the mirror every morning. A few generations ago the comic strip Pogo coined the phrase. “We have met the enemy and he is us.” And in the decades since that phrase entered our vocabulary, nothing has changed. You […]
There’s almost nothing worse in work and leadership than conflict done poorly. Whether it’s in the workplace, in a relationship, or on a team, conflict is a deep concern for many people. I recently conducted a small survey of leaders to discover topics that might be important to them. 70% of the responses dealt with […]
Your behavior on social media can hurt your business, leadership, influence, and even destroy personal relationships. No I’m not overstating it.
