NEWS FROM CLARITY SUMMIT 

 

What's a Clarity Summit?  It's a chance to initiate CHANGE if you see change as a component of letting go of the struggle.  It's a weekend away from your Knower/Judger world with time and resources to see new data...make decisions....get clear. 

 

Your next "aha" moment could come at the next Clarity Summit. What's getting in your way?  Find out July 8-10 at the Country Inn & Suites in beautiful St. Charles, MO.  Click here to learn more.

The Addictive Conversation: How Are You Getting Your Fix?


When we think of the conversations we conduct-with our superiors, with direct reports, with family, even with ourselves-it's difficult to believe that we are addicted to our roles in them. It may even be tough to recognize that most of our conversations fall into repeated patterns at all. But they do. (Read more...)

One Surprising Way to Keep Your Foot out of Your Mouth

 

Have you ever found yourself saying exactly what you didn't want to say...again? It happens to me. Before I know it, the words are out of my mouth, like a slippery eel, and the conversation ends up taking a predictable pattern, with predictable results. Here's one interesting method you can use to keep your foot out of your mouth and create conversations that get the results you really want. (Read more...)

How does Rally 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.

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 share some of these insights for developing High Definition Clarity in your daily and business life, please forward this email.
