How does co-driving prepare you for improving performance in teams and executives?

I am a Rally Co-driver in several series in the Western Hemisphere.  You can read about my racing history at my rally website. When I am competing, it is my job to corral all the best performances from myself, the driver, the mechanics and any other members of the crew supporting us for the weekend.  As you can imagine, as in any racing, egos are strong, tensions are high, and the atmosphere is ripe for interpersonal conflict.
I have a track record of co-driving for racers of any caliber (National Champions to first event novices) and delivering results that exceed their expectations. 
For the rest of my living, I coach executives in leadership and team dynamics; teams in developing higher levels of trust, understanding and camaraderie; and individuals in making changes supportive of getting what they want in life.  In this arena too, I have a reputation for delivering results that exceed their expectations, too.

HDClarity is an e-zine for those wanting to develop more of that trust, understanding and camaraderie in their work environment, and their life in general.  A smoother running team is a more profitable team.  It get things done faster, for less cost.  If you'd like to discover methods for developing High Definition Clarity in your daily life, please read on.

I'm better as a memory than as your man."

Lindsay Lohan Drunk

So sings Country Western songster, Kenny Chesney, and a whole lot of other famous, or perhaps infamous, people. When Lindsay Lohan, George Michael, or innumerable star athletes ask for dispensation with "It's just who I am," we think it's a flimsy excuse. But are you stuck in the same pattern? And is it keeping you from being who you want to be? (Read more...)

What you ought to know

When you start business or personal conversations, do you tend to hear any of these: "I think what you should...," "Yes, but...," "You need to..."? These statements aren't what you want to hear, and they tell you that the other person isn't hearing you. Neither of you is going to get what you want out of the discussion. But there is a way you can avoid this kind of locked conversation so you can be heard. (Read more...)
