Graduating from Micro-Management

July 13, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC It began somewhere in the annals of history – maybe it was Napoleon or Julius Caesar.  A leader who felt accused of focusing on every aspect of what their people were doing reflexively blurted out, “I don’t micro-manage!” For some leaders today, it might be true – for others it could […]

Accountability versus Responsibility 

June 29, 2023

By Allison Iantosca She is smart. And talented. Still young enough in her career to have decades of impact ahead, but old enough to have the reality check of professional scrapes and bruises. Not much will get by her anymore. And now she sits in the enviable position of being a senior leader…earned through sheer […]

Why Do You Ask?

June 15, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC My profession depends on questions.  Powerful questions which elicit curiosity.  Deep questions that invite thought.  And meaningful questions that help explore ideas to learn about our own individual journeys and development. Before embarking on my calling as a coach, I served as a U.S. Army officer, manager and senior executive.  Each […]

A Different Kind of Self Care

June 1, 2023

By Allison Iantosca, ACC My husband and I have been married for over twenty years. Many couples have been together longer, many shorter. I don’t particularly feel like a marriage expert, but I suppose I have learned a few things along the way. I recently found myself in conversation with another female executive leader. And […]

Beware of the Word “Should”

May 18, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC Please don’t think you should read this blog.  I simply invite you to do so.  How many times a day do we hear the word “should?”  It’s a word that we use to inform others about what we feel, about what we desire or even about that which makes us feel […]

Great Idea – How Are You Going to Do It?

May 5, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC How many great ideas do we hear?  And how many strategic plans with noble goals are discussed?  What about mission statements that are hung on company walls? As a corporate leader, I often sat around boardroom tables listening to discussions about critical and timely goals.  Well-meaning executives would lay out aspirational […]

Imagine How It Feels to be Trusted

April 20, 2023

By Allison Iantosca, ACC I have recently found an intellectual attachment to the concept of trust. It’s a short, tight word. Five letters long. Not much span or earned hubris in comparison to some of its Merriam Webster counterparts! But perhaps mass or load are more appropriate measures anyway. Because trust feels heavy. Weighty. Meaningful. […]

Indifference As a Choice

April 7, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC In coaching we don’t presume to tell anyone what they should do.  Instead, we invite them to tell us what they are doing and how it is working for them.  From there, we can help them explore options and decide how they might want to add or modify their behaviors. It […]


March 24, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC As coaches, we spend most of our time listening.  We do that, of course with our ears, and also with our eyes, our body language, our experience and with our hearts. When we do speak, we use inquiry and what are called “powerful questions” that are meant to elicit ideas from […]

Remembering How “Centered” Feels

March 10, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC As humans, we have a limited capacity for recollection, especially in being able to remember what our feelings were at a specific time.  We often try to remember, and yet somehow such emotions are still like the wisps of a dream – as we reach for them, they seem to disappear. […]
