Light Bulb Moment

I love watching the “light bulb” go off in a team full of people who once viewed EACH OTHER as the source of their process-related issues/concerns. When each team member realizes through a creatively used facilitation tool, i.e.,process-flow diagram, that there is no individual as the source of a process-related problem.
Most of the time, it is because each team member does not know what the individual steps are in any given process, and misconceptions about the actual issue are concealed.

Family Business

As a Mentor for not only individuals, but an Executive Coach, I am finding that more and more of my clients are entering into, or have been involved in a family owned and/or operated business venture. This kind of opportunity can be great, based on the fact that most people trust their own family members. Right? This can be the case however, trust is not the only thing that one must look at when entering into a business venture.

Whether or not, one shares the same drive, determination, passion and vision, is not only equally important, but pertainent to your company’s success. So before starting that “family affair”, try sitting down and talking about the vision, mission, and values of your company. Chances are that right at this beginning stage, everyone involved will understand each other better, and together, you will identify if everyone is “dining at the same table.”

Let Us Learn

“Let us learn the revelation of all Nature and thought, that the Highest dwells within us, that the sources of Nature are in our own minds. As there is no screen or ceiling between our heads and the infinite heavens, so there is no bar or wall in the soul where we, the effect, cease, and God, the cause begins. Within us is the soul of the whole; the wise silence, the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal One. When it breaks through our intellect, it is Genius; when it breaths through our will, it is Virtue; when it flows through our affections, it is Love.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
