Generosity and Mindful Leadership

In his book ‘Give and Take‘, Adam Grant makes the compelling connection between giving and success. Although it would seem that takers (people who tend to take more and give little or nothing in return) or matchers (people who keep tabs and make sure every ‘give’ is reciprocated with a ‘take’ and vice versa) would thrive […] Read more…

#MeToo Women Will Make Exceptional Leaders. Here’s Why.

I’ve been thinking about the women of the #MeToo movement. From Larry Nassar to Harvey Weinstein’s victims and every woman yet to be heard, I can’t help but feel the incredible pain these women had to endure through the years.

Why ‘Feel Your Fear and Do It Anyway’ is Terrible Advice

The problem with advice like ‘feel your fear and do it anyway’ is that the emphasis is not on the ‘feel it’ (passive/feminine) part, but strongly on the ‘do it'(active/masculine) part. This is how we become un-balanced and un-whole. If the body is in survival mode and we’re intellectually trying to talk ourselves out of […] Read more…

Getting to the Heart of Leadership

Mystics have known for thousands of years what science is now catching up with. The western world views the heart in a deeply compartmentalized and objective light: physiologically it’s a blood pumping organ and psychologically it’s the home of love, often the romantic kind.

Consciousness And Cautiousness Don’t Go Together.

Consciousness and cautiousness don’t go together. Caution, fear, suspicion makes the idea of loss bigger than it is. In reality, nothing real or worthwhile can be ‘lost’ or taken away from us. But we begin living like relentless guardians of ‘something important’, allowing cautiousness, suspicion, fear to prevail and dominate our psyche. This cautiousness chips […] Read more…
