Are we there yet?

It’s my 3 year-old’s favorite question. And the answer’s almost away, “no, not yet.” Interestingly, my response doesn’t change if a grown-up asks me the same question. Because despite our best efforts, the best intentions and the best possible scenarios, we’re almost always on the way towards the destination. Not exactly what we want to […]

It’s not about getting solutions but discovering them

Almost everyone I know confuses coaching with consulting or mentoring. And when I do try to explain most respond back clarifying, “what’s the damn point if the coach doesn’t have solutions to my challenges?” Reasonable, right?

Check with your human resources manager or the recruiter-par-excellence who’re going bald over the perfect hires that they won’t ever find. And even if they do, the candidates are either going to quit within the next three months […]

Particularly when I have to make an important financial decision. Some of you already know this — I’m a recovering spendthrift, well past the danger […]
