Anything In Life — Begins Here!

Introduction

I believe every human being has a life force that issource that guides, influences every area of their life.

I wrote a simple handbook to explain this belief and lay the foundation for living from and leading from this force. This is no “woo woo” book. It’s practical information for individual contributors and corporate leaders.

Make no mistake about it; anything that is accomplished personally and professionally, individually and with a group requires a force of some kind. Some call it energy, motivation or passion. …


“If we all think alike — no one is thinking very much.” - Walt Whitman

Let me get straight to the point. One key element contributing to the dilemma of creative thinking in the workplace is fear of diversity — fear of “too” different. You see this “ different” causes discomfort. This is the “get out of our comfort zone” we don’t consider and resist.

The comfort zone we usually address is pushing ourselves to grow, moving beyond where we currently are as our choice on our terms. This is the one most familiar when we use that phrase.

…At Least Once a Year

It was 2:45 a.m. when I laid my head to the pillow Thursday of last week.

In the 15 plus years I’ve traveled through-out North America, it was one of the most challenging travel days in quite some time.

You can tell from my profile I work in the world of talent management. You know, the talent management that helps companies find, cultivate and keep their best.
