"The intuitive mind (L/R) is a sacred gift
And the rational mind (K/J) is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant
and has forgotten the gift." (parentheses mine, not Dr. Einstein's)

On Saturday, October 29th Rally Racers (including me) will test their skills on closed county roads in Perry County.  There are great spectating opportunities and it's only 90 minutes from St. Louis.  So if you've EVER thought about seeing a Rally live and in person without having to drive a gazillion miles, get a motel room etc., join us in Perry County.  Spectator maps and schedules available here.    





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 November 11-12 at the Country Inn & Suites in beautiful St. Charles, MO.  Click here to learn more.

Someone Left the Cake Out in the Rain



CakeAs I write this, hundreds, if not thousands, of U.S. citizens are voicing their displeasure about conditions-mostly economic-by "occupying" Wall Street and other iconic sites. This action appears to be a manifestation of a growing frustration with how things have changed since the economic meltdown of 2008. I'm expecting that the anger toward Wall Street will soon spread-to banks, businesses, the paperboy, and the Edward Jones rep. But who's really responsible for our misery? We are.

Taking the High Road

Pissed OffMy client Lawrence said something interesting the other day. I was talking to him about the tendency we have to operate from our Knower/Judgers because it's easier and safer, and usually takes care of our immediate emotional needs. "Yes," said Lawrence, "But that's not taking the high road." Now, I had never thought of being in the Learner/Researcher as taking the high road. And I also knew that "Thou shalt take the high road" is just another K/J rule. But in a way, Lawrence is right.  (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.
