How far have you come?


Sunday is my most favorite day of the week. It’s me time to reflect, connect, appreciate, respond to lifes gifts, and engage in that inner connectedness with all things important that sometimes gets lost in the waves of everyday life. I love the words of Romans 8:28…In all things God works for the good of […]

Everything I Know About Leadership I Learned at the Gym


This is a blog from more than a year ago but the principles hold true for me today! Everything I know about leadership, I learned at the gym. Okay, maybe not everything, but I’ve learned an awful lot. I’ve learned that there are quite a few fitness habits that if used as a catalyst in […]

Organizational Change


Change is hard, ask anyone. As Daniel Goleman points out in “Primal Leadership” (Goleman, D. 2002, Pg 116), one only needs to think back on our previous successes as well as our failed attempts at change.

Then where will you send the intentions? To your marriage, your work, your children? What ever it be, make it yours, […]

Obesity in the Workplace


Obesity is always a touchy subject, and with the new cautions on obesity and discrimination in the workplace, most won’t touch the subject with a ten foot pole. The evidence shows we’ve got to, and I’m happy to! Obesity does not define who someone is, it is a condition. An unhealthy condition than can be […]

Goethe and Growth and Change


Although to some it seems like a no brainer, the most up to date research tells us that when we fail to change, we fail to grow. It is not so much that we grow old, it is that we grow stagnant. Without a renewable source of energy that encourages change and renewal in which […]

Obstacle-atition


In the quest for success and excellence the victor is most often the gladiator that learns to overcome their obstacles. Learning to not only be good at, but to love obstacles, is a way of life and an attitude. An obstacle is nothing more than a problem that has not yet been solved. When we […]

Healing From Our Failures


Helen Keller said “Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.” True words we can all agree-but how many of us are […]
