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 […]

Shiny Pennies

June 30, 2022

By Dave Bushy, PCC We’ve all experienced shiny pennies.  As children, it seemed so magical to hold a newly-minted penny, as it sparkled in the light of day.  When we held it next to another penny, we instantly drew a comparison and decided somehow that the old one could have never been as new or […]

Bringing Peace to the Different Parts of Yourself

June 16, 2022

By Allison Iantosca Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone leaving us deeply set in the beginnings of summer revel. A different kind of time altogether. We play. More. We eat. Later. We walk around in bare feet with bare arms and bare kneecaps. A vulnerability so oddly juxtaposed to the tucked in and hidden […]

There is No Limit to What People Will Let You Do For Them

June 2, 2022

By Dave Bushy I am privileged to work with leaders throughout the world in a dozen different industries and professions.  A very common theme is that their workload and job demands are never-ending.  Indeed, they feel as if there are no limits to what others expect from them – or what others will let them […]

Bringing Joy and Purpose to Your Employee Reviews

May 19, 2022

By Allison Iantosca This past week I found myself enjoying an extraordinary piece of swordfish and a long overdue catch-up with a fellow business owner. Plenty to talk about. An appropriately nurturing waiter and nowhere else to be for the next hour or two. Lovely. We both came to the conversation with a great sense […]

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 […]

What’s the Formula for Success?

April 20, 2022

By Dave Bushy In speaking with potential clients, I often get a question like the title of this blog.  Questions abound, in fact, including: “Are there steps I should take to change?” or “What should I do to succeed as a leader?” As a coach who deals with unique individuals (and, of course, we’re all […]
