Practicing Self-Care – The New Accountability

November 12, 2020

By Laurie Fitzpatrick It’s no coincidence that this was the year I decided to get serious about supporting myself.  In a year that has tested executives’ resourcefulness and resolve at every turn, I find I am no exception. It was on a weekly call with my board chair that he asked what I was doing […]

One Way to Manage Yourself and Difficult People

October 29, 2020

By Allison Iantosca I get that not every person is a dog person. Dogs shed and bark. They lick unimaginably hard places to reach and eat things that: a. you don’t know how they found and b. you would never even touch with your bare hand. They jump on the counter, jump on your mother-in-law, […]

I’m So Busy – How Do I Prepare for a Meeting?

October 16, 2020

by Dave Bushy You’re a busy manager and it’s Sunday evening.  You’re trying to get ready for the upcoming week.  You log onto your work calendar and look incredulously at your Monday schedule wide-eyed.   You are booked with continuous back-to-back meetings from 7 am until 6 pm! “What happened?” you ask yourself.  Then you remember […]

How Do I Give Feedback to My People?

October 3, 2020

By Dave Bushy You’ve made it into a leadership position.  You are finally a manager!  You take the new job seriously, knowing that the responsibilities include meeting strategic goals, managing budgets and making presentations to senior management.  Those challenges are daunting, but you feel well prepared, due to your background, education and business experience. And […]

Who Am I? Leadership Resonance

September 18, 2020

By Allison Iantosca I wonder if you can imagine yourself sitting alone in a concert hall—a venue created for listening to classical music. It may be gilded and ornate; pillars surging up to a ceiling bedecked with painted angels? Or perhaps it is spare and cool, with wood paneled walls and a small stage like […]

How Do I Cope With All This Change?

September 4, 2020

By Diane Shannon When my first child was born and I stepped over the mighty threshold to “parent,” I felt elated, awed, and grateful—and at the same time as if my life had completely fallen apart. Meditation had been a daily sanity-saving practice for me. Have you ever tried to meditate with a newborn crying […]

How Do I Find Hope?

August 27, 2020

by Dave Bushy “Always Have Hope.” This philosophy informs the simplest and most profound outlook humans can hold in their hearts.  It is a quote from one of the men I admired most in the world. I often ask those around me how they feel about the times in which we live.  Many point to […]

If It Were Summer…

August 14, 2020

By Allison Iantosca In Gestalt coaching we talk with you about what is “figural”; a way of defining the main thing you are or could be looking at by pulling it out of everything else that forms the background. Sometimes I imagine this like seeds in a garden and you choose to water what you […]

Attend to Others – Give Them the Gift of Yourself

August 7, 2020

By Dave Bushy I learn from every client.  One lesson in particular that comes to mind came from a young leader with whom I recently worked.  My client was extremely curious about how others saw her.  She worked hard at becoming aware of her own well-developed sides and those she discerned might be less developed.  […]

Developing Empathy, Compassion, and Understanding as Leaders

July 22, 2020

By Lisa McNeill We often talk about a business in terms of building its health: strengthening leadership to guide the organization; developing core competencies so the business and employees can grow; building operational systems and structures to effectively carry the organization into a new phase of development. But we rarely talk about developing skills such […]
