    Betrayal at Work Betrayal is a violation of trust, which is why it feels so gut-wrenchingly awful and can come as such a shock. We often don’t or can’t see it coming. And we’re often left flatfooted in terms of how to deal with it. Our anger or resentment may cause us to want to […]

    Business Model Generation

    Business Model Generation

    Business Model Generation caught my eye in a book store in December – It is rare I find myself in book stores anymore given how many books are sent to me as a blogger and my preference in reading on Kindle or IPad. I think it was the graphic design of the book that first caught my eye. When I began thumbing through it I did what most readers do according to research, looked at the cover, identified the author, looked at endorsements, scanned forward then began on the first chapter. I could see there was something new about this book and how the authors thought about business models. It was clear that Business Model Generation was a book for visionaries, game changers, and challengers.

    The Eulogy Exercise

    The Eulogy Exercise

    We each live two lives. The first is the life we live before we realize that we only get to live one life. Then there is living that life.

    We know we only have one life….and yet most of us still act as if we’ll get a chance for a do-over. We let ourselves get bogged down by minutia or trapped in routines, and don’t consider what we might be doing instead and how we want to be remembered.

Chase, and Secretary of State William H. Seward. Lincoln’s gesture was both noble and […]

    Removing Weaknesses

    Removing Weaknesses & Building Strengths

    In the U.S., we tend to focus heavily on one or the other: deficits or strengths. A child art prodigy may spend her days in the learning center to become an average speller. A standout soccer player may spend so much time playing that sport and traveling to games that he loses his passion for the game and sports in general. We are a culture of excess, and sometimes that excess can take the joy out of a strength or make a weakness feel overwhelming.

    I Love You, and You Can’t Do Anything About It

    Diane Rowling (a very kind and talented business executive) was sadly killed a number of weeks ago. At the memorial service, I was struck by one of the solutions she and her husband employed when they got angry with one another. When one of them was on the verge of walking out of the room, the other would say, “I love you, and you can’t do anything about it.”

    Happiness Self vs. Memory Self

    Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Laureate and founder of behavioral economics, says that we have two selves: our experiencing self and our memory self. Our experiencing self likes to be happy in the moment—with people we like, in a comfortable environment, and engaging in fun activities. Our memory self is more interested in goal attainment than comfort and familiarity; it seeks out experiences that make for good, memorable stories.

    Type II Fun

    Type II Fun

    As a teenager, I found myself with 16 others on the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Maine in a 30-foot pulling boat with 12-foot swells and no tiller or rudder. The seas were getting rougher and the sky was crackling with lightning and thunder. We were scared, wet, and tired. We were unprotected from […]
