Forgiveness

November 17, 2022

By Dave Bushy, PCC In a recent blog, I related the story of discovery about what was causing a client to be “stuck” in his career.  It concerned an incident with a boss whose actions had severely impacted the client and his sense of value as a person and a professional. A number of readers […]

The Bad Bosses We Carry With Us

November 3, 2022

By Dave Bushy, PCC I was working with a client one day, appreciating the self-discovery that was taking place for him.  He spoke about the ways he had been shaped professionally and how he had been able to function and succeed in the workplace. The client was focusing on very real strengths and capabilities.  A […]

Do I Talk Too Much?

October 20, 2022

By Dave Bushy, PCC One day during a coaching session, an executive asked me, “How do I know if I’m talking too much?” The question had emerged from the results of confidential interviews I had conducted at the executive’s request.  I had created a document which included de-identified “themes” which emerged during my interaction with […]

How To Feel Not So Stuck

October 6, 2022

By Allison Iantosca Fall. Change and transition. Coaching. Because life is about the whole of you; not just you as the Executive. So, Fall. For some, I suppose, its beginning is merely an extension of summer only interrupted by the sense of fewer sandal-wearing, bare-leg-baring, swimsuit wearers in line at the local convenience store. For […]

Take a Walk on the Beach

September 23, 2022

By Dave Bushy, PCC Ever do some deep and reflective thinking while you were walking or hiking?  It happened for me one day some years back when my best friend invited me to walk the beach near our home.  It was a Sunday and I had just finished a few hours of catch-up on emails […]

Making the Work “The Horse” and Not “The Tick”

September 10, 2022

By Lisa McNeill I was working with a client a month or so ago, and he said, “I need to make this work – the horse not the tick!”  This particular client’s passion and purpose is to develop reduced emissions resources to help fight climate change and improve environmental, economic, and health outcomes for local […]

Be Kind to Those You Meet on the Way Up

August 25, 2022

By Dave Bushy “Be nice to those you meet on the way up because you will meet them on the way down,” is variously attributed to Jimmy Durante, Wilson Mizner and even Walter Winchell. Whoever said it had a perspective from which we all can learn.  In my experience as a leader and as an […]

Replacing Should with Good

August 10, 2022

By Allison Iantosca There is no shortage of conversation on burnout these days. Even our own Boston Executive Coaches Blog has taken to writing about varieties of burn out, acknowledging the continued requirement to carry the weight of a world that simply can’t seem to calm itself down. The horizon is filled with headlines of […]

Organizational Prestidigitation

July 28, 2022

By Dave Bushy The concept of prestidigitation is central to magic shows.  It can involve a sleight of hand or the ability to distract a person while they are looking at a trick, using misdirection. Increasingly, the concept of prestidigitation is being employed by social engineers aimed at scamming others, most especially in cybersecurity attacks.  […]

How to “See” the Elusive Venn Diagram

July 14, 2022

By Dave Bushy A Venn Diagram is described by Will Kenton in Investopedia as “an illustration that uses circles to show the relationships among things or finite groups of things. Circles that overlap have a commonality while circles that do not overlap do not share those traits.” It might seem odd to focus on the […]
