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. Many tell me that they have to do their “regular work” before and after each business day […]

The Observer Effect and Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle

November 25, 2021

By Dave Bushy My apologies to the physicists who might be reading this.  I’m no expert on quantum mechanics.  But I am a lifelong learner.  So when I saw an article recently on “Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle,” I read further and learned about what is called the “Observer Effect,” which, in physics, is described as the […]

Taking Command – Your Turn at the Helm

November 11, 2021

By Dave Bushy Every leader experiences that first adrenalin rush – tinged with a bit of uncertainty – when we first take command of a department, a company or a military unit. Part of the mixed emotions we experience can be linked to the very real feeling that we have finally achieved a career ambition […]

Apple Picking

October 29, 2021

by Allison Iantosca We went apple picking earlier this month. Well, kind of. Let me back up. First of all, it’s October. And though I would swear on every fall prior to this one that October is the prime apple picking month, apparently it’s not. It’s too late. I do remember that September is too […]

How Do I Bring My Best Self to an Interview?

October 25, 2021

By Lisa McNeill I’m not a Career Coach in the traditional sense, however I often have clients who are in the process of searching for a new job, thinking about a career change, and/or looking for new opportunities for growth and leadership.  Currently, I’m working with two clients who are actively interviewing, another who has […]

“Hold It Like a Feather”

October 7, 2021

By Dave Bushy One of my favorite coaching mentors often said “hold it like a feather,” as he held his hand out and demonstrated the lightness he was describing.  He was teaching us that our questions as coaches can often land in ways we might not have imagined.  And that our job is to assure […]

The Power of the Word Should

September 23, 2021

By Allison Iantosca You know the saying “sticks and stones may break…but words will never hurt me”?  I humbly beg to differ. Words have huge power to hurt, especially the words we speak to ourselves.  And I have decided that one of the most hurtful and powerful words we speak to ourselves is the word […]

A Leader Can Build a Real Team

September 9, 2021

By Dave Bushy A few weeks ago, I published a blog about “Finding My Solid Ground.”  The article struck a chord with my readers, many of whom followed up with questions and comments.  One person asked, “Do you have any ideas on how I, as a leader, can help establish solid ground for the members […]
