"Checking the results of a decision against its expectations shows executives what their strengths are, where they need to improve, and where they lack knowledge or information. "

How to Break Free

 

 

 

Clean plateRemember when Coke cost a nickel? American cars had big tail fins? VHS was the way to watch movies at home and telephones sat on tables-and had dials? It all changed. We accept that things change. We don't go berserk about cell phones or small cars. So why do we have such a problem when a rule we internalized back in 1975, like "You must clean your plate," isn't working anymore? There are some rules that need breaking, but doing it is hard, unless you understand where they come from and know how to free yourself.  (Read more)...

Bad Turns to Good with UPR

 

  

Remember the story of Dr. Hew Len at the psychiatric hospital in Hawaii? He used the Ho'oponopono affirmation each time he came into contact with an inmate: "I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you." The results were impressive. The concept is based on the idea that we are responsible for everything and everyone, creating "bad" and "good" people and situations out of our (flawed and incomplete) Knower/Judger concepts. But over the past eight years, I've coached many leaders, executives, and family guys who have had a hard time even thinking "I love you" while approaching an arrogant boss. So let's modify this highly effective tactic to make it more palatable. (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.
