Intuition and Flow or In the Zone

Posted on

How are intuition and ‘in the zone’ similar? Both involve experiential knowing rather than textbook or analytic knowing. Seeing things in their wholeness and connection, rather than more sequential and separated ways of seeing. A gestalt way of seeing – that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Being able to recognize […]

Toxic People?

Posted on

Removing toxic people is one of the biggest things you can do to transform your life. Except I don’t generally use the term toxic people. I use toxic relationships or interactions. Or dynamics.

Psychological Safety and Vulnerability for Leaders

Posted on

I offer a unique perspective on psychological safety and vulnerability for leaders. We aren’t talking about psychological safety enough -especially in the workplace.

A lack of it disintegrates engagement […]
