Leadership in Times of Crisis: Vulnerability as a Strength

April 7, 2020

by Dave Bushy Leaders emerge during times of crisis, formal titles or not.  They provide support, strength and vision for those around them.  And they give something else of themselves: vulnerability.  Our presence as leaders is not only about projections or manifestations of strength.  It is about being open to the concept of vulnerability – […]

Faith and the Optimistic Stance

March 30, 2020

by Dave Bushy Faith is a word which elicits different thoughts and emotions for each of us.  For some, it is a sense of trusting others or implicitly knowing we are understood or respected.  For others, it can be the feeling that we will always be encouraged by our friends, colleagues and fellow travelers, especially […]

The Calm in the Center of the Storm

March 17, 2020

by Dave Bushy As we face today’s challenges and uncertainties, we are all experiencing emotions and thoughts that we have seldom, if ever, confronted before.  Life indeed throws challenges our way.  And those challenges have varying degrees of uncertainty.  The end result is a sort of disorientation that, to most of us, can be downright […]

Resistance

March 4, 2020

by Allison Iantosca As a New Englander one can always relate just about anything to the seasons; especially the transition of winter to spring. And so here, at the beginning of March, I find myself, as ever, beginning to think winter is long over and any month starting with an “M” most certainly must signal […]

Kindness, Dignity and Respect – Modeling Those Values

February 9, 2020

By Dave Bushy Kindness, dignity and respect.  These values are timeless.  They are integral to the culture of society and to any interpersonal relationship.  Indeed, they are core to any successful human endeavor.

Coaching – A Platform to Explore Possibility

January 14, 2020

by Allison Iantosca So, deep down, I’m competitive. And impatient. Competitive and impatient. I’ve been working on myself though– seeking to be present and trusting that I am not in control of whatever Fate might have in store for me. All this to say, I am very familiar with the nagging in my gut that […]

Executive Presence and Our Range as Leaders

December 21, 2019

by Dave Bushy In recent years there has been continuing focus on the concept of “Executive Presence.”   Like so many aspects of leadership, the definition is elusive and agreement on what it looks like even more difficult to pin down.  Is it a matter of style, substance or even body language?  And is it just […]

December 19, 2019

by Allison Iantosca An early November morning— the austerity of the angles as the yellow sun stretches through now courageously unburdened branches.
