    A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of attending the Wisdom 2.0 conference.  Wow!  What a powerful 4 days of thought leaders brought together around a common purpose and interest:  To explore how we can live with mindfulness, wisdom and compassion in the technological age.  I have attended Wisdom 2.0 for the past 3 years and yet this year seemed like a tipping point.  From a sheer numbers standpoint, the conference grew from 600-1700 which to me suggests the continued growing importance that people in organizations see in approaching business and leadership in

    It’s weeks like these when I simply love what I do.  I get to help people find their dream work! Last week my client arrived “not wanting to look for a job” and in the  middle of our work she realized it was because she wanted to start her own business.  Our one hour meeting turned into a 2 hour brainstorming session which I was thrilled to extend because she was on FIRE with energy.  She walked out with a framework for an idea and the beginning of an action plan to begin investigating it

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.

  • 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
