    by • on Mar 11, 13 • in Happiness, Professional Development, Work You Love

    What gives you meaning at work? It’s a big question, yes.  But I believe it’s one of the most important. Check out this interesting piece from McKinsey.  It’s no longer just about IQ or EQ (Emotional Intelligence), but they suggest it’s about MQ (Meaning quotient)...

  • As a Leader, Focus on Being vs Doing

    by • on Jun 8, 11 • in Career, Leadership, Professional Development, Self Awareness, Uncategorized • with No Comments

    In this crazy, fast-paced work environment that we’re all part of it’s hard to remember that the “how’ of getting something done can be just as important as the “what”.  We are, after all, human beings not human doings. But the doing takes over doesn’t it?  We rush around trying to get it all done.  We schedule, reschedule, check email, send email and go from meeting to meeting.  At the end of the day, we look at our to-do list and wonder:  What did I get done today? I’m posing that there’s another important question

    by • on Feb 8, 11 • in Coaching, Creativity & Innovation, Leadership, Professional Development • with No Comments

    The other week I had a great conversation with a digital advertising industry expert, Adam Kleinberg of Traction. We shared ideas and thoughts on all sort of subjects like creativity, innovation, leadership etc.  It was an all around great conversation that left me inspired. He told me about how his recent approach of starting with “ why” had made a difference in his recent client meeting.   In fact, he  blogged about it. It reminded me of a Ted.com talk I saw by Simon Shrek that I found extremely thought provoking.   In it, Simon

  • More engagement at work…what are you waiting for?

    by • on May 27, 10 • in Career, Leadership, Professional Development • with No Comments

    The recent WSJ.com article “More Workers Start to Quit” states that “in February the number of employees voluntarily quitting surpassed the number being fired or discharged for the first time since October 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.” The article also indicates that the number of employees quitting could continue to grow in the coming months.   Apparently, people were waiting to see more jobs show up as possibilities before they made a move.  Makes sense.  In fact, 60% of workers said they intended to leave their jobs when the market got better &#

  • Berlin Wall – A reminder about freedom and choice

    by • on Nov 9, 09 • in Career • with No Comments

    I remember when the Berlin Wall came down.  I was in an Irish bar in Australia.  I didn’t believe anyone until I saw it on TV.  It seemed surreal. Growing up in the U.S. with a father who had escaped from East Germany, I was always very aware of the impact the war and the wall had had in his life.   30 years ago or so my dad took our family to Europe for a month.  We spent about 2 out of  4 weeks of that trip in East Germany.  I remember it feeling like
