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 […]

Interrupting

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. […]

When You Get Frustrated With Your Team

February 23, 2023

By Allison Iantosca, ACC Human organizations seem to be in an endless search to discover “How to Build a Great Team,” or “How to Fix a Dysfunctional Team.”  Perhaps the ease of the Google search, the plethora of articles all over the Internet, the inspiration of book after book on the Leadership shelf at Barnes […]

Living One Life – A Whole Life

February 9, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC “Gestalt” is described* as “a composition of elements that can only be appreciated as a whole rather than as a sum of its parts.” As a Gestalt-trained coach, I am honored to work with clients to help them explore what “wholeness” means to them and how they can discover and then […]

Adjusting Your Course

January 22, 2023

By Dave Bushy, PCC “I’m making course adjustments,” a good friend and colleague told me the other day, smiling as he spoke.  Fascinated, I listened as he went on to provide perspective on what “adjusting course” meant for him.  The genesis of the conversation had arisen from a chat we were having about strong convictions […]

You and an Optimistic Start to the New Year

January 5, 2023

By Allison Iantosca, ACC Coaching can be a bit like a fresh start. It seems no better time of year then, to explore the opportunity. Which got me to thinking, I wonder what it is like to be the month of January. December seems a particularly hard act to follow with its days packed to […]
