HOME STRETCH 2011 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 September 9-10 at the Country Inn & Suites in beautiful St. Charles, MO.  Click here to learn more.

A Tale of Two Dogs

 
Bubba and Gabby First Christmas

When we lost our family's first dog 15 years ago, it was perfect timing. Youngest daughter is out of the nest, dog's dead...we're free! I lasted about 45 days, then went down to the Humane Society and adopted Beelzebub (Bubba for short), a near-pure black Lab and Gabriel (Gabby), a wound-up, wacko border collie-hound mix. These two spent the next 12 years as adoring brothers, roaming free in our front yard on a busy corner in our little town of Webster Groves, Missouri, and teaching a valuable lesson about the importance of knowing when to be in your Knower/Judger and when to be in your Learner/Researcher.

You Know the Type, but Do You Really?

 

Defensive Executive

 

 

 

We only have one opportunity to make a first impression, and sometimes we don't even get that opportunity. Almost universally, we make judgments about people as soon as we meet them. Tall, short. Fat, skinny. Attractive, unattractive. Cool, uncool. Rich, poor. My kind, not my kind. Are the judgments you're making getting in the way of your success? (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.
