There is so much noise in our environments. Whether this noise is reflected in the inability to communicate, the wrong fashion of communicating, or allowing too much emotion into our communication, nothing moves forward and everything becomes vulnerable…
In a recent interview on WBUR’s Here and Now, Caitlyn Jenner spoke about her life, covering topics spanning from her early life, to winning Olympic decathlon gold as Bruce Jenner, up into her revelation of her lifelong identification as female. Jenner also covers these topics and more in her new book.
An interesting part of the conversation took place when it turned to politics.
Politics aside, what does it take for you to see the other side of an argument?
Hypothetically, if an issue is brought before our group, how do we understand it as it applies to the greater good of a group and how might we try to relate to its cause and mission?
In January 2017, Speaker of the United States…
The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election has already gone down as one of the most contentious, divisive, and combative election cycles in United States history.
The term “trickle-down,” aside from being used for economic purposes, could also be used to describe how these antagonistic feelings cascaded from the Presidential campaign down to the Congressional elections, to the state elections, and finally into the general public, impacting the relationships of citizens, friends,…
A face-to-face conversation between Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck. Think about that for a minute.
Beyond that, think of them putting aside their stark differences to come together to the same side.
Imagine these two people — a strong liberal and staunch conservative — coming together, joining forces, to confront a common enemy. Check it out here.
How does this happen? What has to happen for these usual staunch…
“Just Sayin’” is a term that’s invaded and taken over conversations as a quick means for the user to note that they are just seemingly pointing something out without wanting to engage in a debate about what’s been pointed out.
Although it’s overused, it serves an interesting purpose in ongoing discourse. It allows us to point out that something is off, amiss, or even objectionable, but that the…
On a few occasions I’ve been asked, when friends, colleagues, or other professionals have seen my posts and thereafter read the Services section, how and why CiO’s services include both Leadership Coaching and Mediation. To them, one seemed to be about improving oneself (leadership) while the other had to do with improving the relationship between two parties (mediation). These are fair points considering the traditional idea and perception of each. But there’s…
Politics aside, it’s refreshing to hear requests from our politicians that are more the exception than the regular rule and rigmarole.
Too often we have leaders that push their agendas. And they should do so as that’s what they get elected to do. That’s understood.
“Political posturing–it’s a confusing game of Battleship when it should be a strategic conversation of reasonable requests.”
But they approach it from the standpoint…

Review, cut, but learn from the toxic parts of your life. Whether it's people, co-workers, emotions, self-perception, social circles, social media, etc. There's too much greatness out there to limit yourself or settle. #self #development #leadership ow.ly/3CCt30mD7uu
How would you answer these questions? Your answers can provide insight into your own tendency to simplify or complicate? These questions open up that conversation, so they’re not just for interviewing candidates. #interviewing #hiring #coaching #business ow.ly/l5us30mrde3
How do you decide to step away from what you're working on? Do you know what your threshold is? Are you sure? Taking on too much can crush us in different ways, whether it depletes our energy, mental health, relationships, effectiveness, etc. #life #career #health #mentalhealth
Whether or not you're the boss, leader, or manager in your group, does each person have consistency, in terms of where they stand in their leaders' eyes? Do those being led know what they're going to get, from one day to the next? #leadership #management #workplace #hbr pic.twitter.com/v5rK1l4cGf
What are your daily habits and rituals...for yourself? Always deliver for others, but make sure you take care of yourself first. Be selfish with what gets you going. #success #Leadership #motivation #coaching twitter.com/TheSuccessKing…

Leadership Lesson: Be sure to think past the words of advice, and consider who’s providing them, what the context is, and the lessons being conveyed in them, before you dismiss them as cliché. #communication #conversations #coaching ow.ly/QjPS30mzXcq
Two groups down, and one to go. These students ask great questions. I want them to know what they're capable of. Never settle. Don't just be reactive. Stay proactive. Know who you are, what you want, and the value you can provide to others. #leaders…lnkd.in/e48jDpY
@sarahmzuccaro @RayDalio @AdamMGrant Outliers is great. @RayDalio's Principles is too. In general, think about how much goes unfixed because people can't speak up. Think of the development forfeited. I wonder what makes it easier for some of us to speak up. I guess some of us just see the urgency in life and work.
Looking forward to presenting again at the Prospanica CT 2018 Quest Education Summit. No one is ever too young to consider their leadership ability. Students can impact tomorrow by recognizing their true abilities today. #leadership #education #coaching ow.ly/zSPk30myiNE
Great point regarding what organizations take into account when weighing general group work vs. individualized work options for their people. There's a time, place, and need for each. Each is great on their own right: In the group, harnessing the power…lnkd.in/dAEtSJA
Where do you stand in each of the items listed in and outside of Your Comfort Zone? You don't HAVE to stand on any particular side, but you need to realize where you truly WANT to be. Where do you stand now? How do they reconcile? #life #leadership #business #coaching pic.twitter.com/fB5EEfnChy
