The Relationship Between Your “Center” and Your Confidence

May 5, 2022

By Dave Bushy “Do you need to find your center to discover your confidence, or do you first find your confidence in order to be centered?” I asked a client this question once during a session. It first elicited a look of surprise, then a slight smile, followed by a long moment of reflection and […]

Know Your Values to Know Your Value

March 28, 2022

By Allison Iantosca Candlepin bowling with a twelve-year-old is very frustrating. Which has nothing to do with the twelve-year-old except his superior ability to toss a two-and-a-half-pound ball down the glossy straightaway and knock over eight or nine of the ten pins at the other end…every single time. I, on the other hand, hit the […]

Ways to Find Your “Voice”

March 10, 2022

By Dave Bushy In my work with leaders, a very common theme is the desire to enhance communication.  This feeling often emerges from their own awareness and desire to improve the ability to have meaningful conversations with others In essence, it involves finding their voice.

February 17, 2022

By Dave Bushy Did you ever contemplate what you know? How about what you don’t know? What tools do you use to build awareness in order to decide between the two? I worked with a client a few years ago.  Words come to mind to describe him, including cheerful, bright and caring.  And there was […]

WANT TO RUN AN EFFECTIVE MEETING? TRY BEING THE “HOST”

February 3, 2022

By Allison Iantosca Let’s take a minute to talk about meetings.   Yup, we all have them, like it or not, come-out-come-out-wherever-you-are, we can’t hide from them, they are both a beautiful and brutal way to do business.

The “How” of Working Together

January 20, 2022

By Dave Bushy As leaders we can sometimes overly focus our days on what we and our teams should accomplish.  We create strategic plans and then we devise action steps that will allow us to accomplish them.  Myriad “tasks” emanate downward to our teams and the work gets assigned and executed at the individual level. […]

My Favorite Aunt

January 6, 2022

By Dave Bushy In the process of executive coaching, I often ask clients, “Who was your favorite aunt or uncle?”  I am always thrilled with the varying answers and attentively listen.  I hear some very common themes, many of which parallel my own experiences with my Aunt Maggie.  She was actually my Great Aunt.  And […]

What is burn out anyway?

December 23, 2021

By Allison Iantosca She looked rested and centered over Zoom. The room was bright from the sun but she was perfectly positioned; not backlit, no shadow. Just aglow. We’d been working together since before the summer maybe, took a break and then decided to get together again for a quick check in before the holidays. […]

So Many Video Meetings – Try These Five Alternatives

December 9, 2021

By Dave Bushy Daily, as I speak with clients, the subject of meetings has become a theme.  Wall-to-wall video meetings that begin early in the day and stretch to well past normal closing time have become increasingly common.
